One of the best things about the holiday season..

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. We are already eight days into December, and already I have attended four Holiday functions this month, with many more coming before the Holidays.

Our last wellness event for the year has just started, with our “Maintain through the Holidays” challenge where the goal is to maintain your current weight through this holiday season. One of the best tips I saw during this campaign was “Staying healthy at Parties”, so I thought I should share it with you.

One of the best things about the holiday season is spending time reconnecting with loved ones and catching up on all that has happened in the past year. Parties and potlucks abound and wouldn't be complete without the sharing of good food or drinks. By paying attention to what you consume at these events, you can make choices that will leave you feeling just as recharged as you are from the conversation.
