Holiday Party Success Strategies

Last night was my husband’s Christmas party and we had a great time so I thought I would make some suggestions for not going overboard at your holiday parties.  My first suggestion is to eat healthy meals throughout the day prior to the party.  Secondly, drink plenty of water throughout the day especially on the way there.  This is important not only to keep you full but also to keep you hydrated.  Another tip, is to eat healthy appetizers like vegetable sticks if they are served since dinner will most likely be very rich.  Make sure you consider the alcoholic drinks a splurge so you are mindful about how many and which type you are consuming.  If you want desert, have a small one so you satisfy that craving and eat slowly savoring each bite.

If you go with a plan you should be able to stay on track.  But if you happen to overindulge just get up the next morning and start over.  One night is not going to totally derail your efforts as long as you don’t let it.  Happy Holidays!
