Holiday Health Tips

• Instead of a cup of eggnog, how's about a cup of eggnot?


When you make holiday cookies, throw a couple of stink bugs in the batter. They won't be so tempting if you're scared you'll get a stinkbug cookie.

• To curb cravings, gnaw on a pine cone.

• To get it out of your system, go to Starbucks and order a venti Gingerbread Peppermint Mocha cinnamon eggnog latte. Whoa... That's actually pretty good!


Limiting yourself to one piece of gingerbread doesn't make it okay to eat an entire gingerbread house.

• FDA does not - I repeat does NOT - recommend that you get four to six servings of fruitcake each day.


Speed carol.

• At holiday parties, ask hostess to please hide all delicious food out of your sight.

• Holiday stress often leads to overeating, so consider slipping into a coma for the month of December.

• On January 1, lots of folks are going to be joining gyms and clogging up the works before they quit after 2 or 3 weeks, so my advice to you is to go ahead and join a gym now so you it won't be so crowded for the 2 or 3 weeks you use it before you quit.


Jingle all the way (or at least as much of the way as you are able).


  1. I wanna speed carol!!! haha love it!

  2. I especially like the bit about gnawing on pinecones. Fight cravings AND get in your fiber...

  3. Hmm..pre-emptive strike on a gym membership before abandoning it...pure genius.

  4. Please stay out of my way when you newbies hit the gym!!! ;-) KIDDING!! I go when hardly anyone is around!!!

  5. Personally, I think the coma idea sounds the best.

  6. I once ate a ginger bread house.... never again!
    Turns out, it had been in this poor ladies family for years.
    I found it in the pantry. Helped myself to it.
    And she took it apart every year, to save it for the next.
    All those years- all that glue - all those hands - YUK!
    I thought it tasted funny!
    True story.

  7. The slipping into a coma bit sounds pretty good to me right about now!!
