Holiday Pounds

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!  We went to a fancy shmancy cocktail party at a gorgeous, historic home downtown Charleston.  They had bartenders, a doorman, caterers, passed hors d'oeuvres, and a DJ with a double turntable.  Yep!  It was impressive!  Just in case you're wondering, I wore a gold silk blouse, a gold belt with sequin buckle, black sequin leggings, and Dolce & Gabbana leopard heels.

I'm feeling a little large and in charge these days.  It's due to the number of Christmas parties we have on the schedule, the food I shovel in at them, and glasses of babymamajuice I throw back.  I have a lazy woman's approach to keeping the pounds under control:

1. I order salads.  I hate them.  I eat some of the meat and veggies off the top and then I lose my appetite.  Lettuce is a waste of time.

2.  Watch a horror movie, it burns calories.  "The Shining" burns approximately 184 calories and it isn't even scary.  I can't wait to see "Mama" when it comes out.  I'll burn a whole day's worth of calories!

3.  Do a 2 minute plank, daily.  It's one of the best things for your abs and it's only 2 minutes.  I've been doing them for a week and my ribs and abs totally feel it.  I add side planks and push ups when I'm feeling up to it, but make sure to at least do the 2 minute basic version.  Thanks for the tip Christina!

4.  Don't eat dinner or "pre-party" before your Christmas parties.  You will eat and drink enough when you get there.  That's a few hundred calories saved!

Told you it was easy peasy!  What are your tips and tricks during the Holidays?
