But just like Christmas, the New Year will be here before you know it.
I've teamed up with a bloggy friend to offer you a few special treats to stay Beautiful in the New Year!
Before you get all "click happy" take a minute and check out these tips to help you have healthy holidays!
In case you missed my Healthy Holiday Tips shared on Laura's blog, I'm sharing a quick recap!
Definitely give yourself "calories burned points" for cleaning. It can seriously work up a sweat!
I turn to healthy dishes like veggie pizza's, bruschetta, pumpkin dips, fun fruits like cranberries, and bites instead of cakes to be sure of good eats while at a holiday party. The more color, the better the food choices for your body. And choosing these healthier foods will eliminate the "portion control" worries.
Stay active, people! There's nothing worse than feeling tired after having done nothing! That happens after sitting around chatting, eating and sipping. We'd be much happier if we were tired from a day of mingling, dancing, and oh, say, snow sledding! So if possible, take a cue from the kids and get the party outside and active!
Always, always allow time for yourself. It's so easy to neglect ourselves during this busy time of the year and it's sure to backfire. Allow some time for yourself each day, whether that time is spent working out, reading, painting your nails, whatever you do in your "you time" make the time for it!
And you know, I'd mention water! Never leave home without it.
