Please share your plans for holidays; travel plans, food choices and challenges, physical activity, visits with relatives etc.

What helps and what does not?

I am going to Panama over the Christmas holiday.  Will keep busy touring.  Lots of walking will occur.  Will try to keep meals comparable to a normal schedule/amount and level of exercise as well.
I do not think that I will have any difficulties.

Oh Nadia that sounds absolutely lovely.  Have a ball!  

I am actually attempting (with difficulty) to get back on track and back to the basics.  I've gained some weight and am not happy about it.  "Coincidentally," my extended family relations have deteriorated to a horrible level.  This (and other life difficulties) have driven me back to old habits and the comforts of food. 

Thanksgiving was quite painful.  So for Christmas, I have decided NOT to join that family for the festivities.  Very tough decision but definitely the right one for me.  I will spend my holiday with those that wish me no harm and reflect upon the true reason for the season.  

God bless you all and Merry Christmas!

My holiday plans are simple and low key. Very small gathering with only my closest family. I will try to focus on the company and not the food. We are backing my Mom's famous nut tossies - but I will be giving most away to the neighbors as gifts. 

Always striving to get "back to basics"....even broke the new bari bible out again and started rereading. I kind of fell off training a bit since my race season ended. I have a home gym but I rejoined the neighborhood gym to try to give my self a change of pace and new options...thinking maybe I was just bored with the same old same old. Actually trying a new class out tonight called PUMP - I know nothing about it other than it's name so we shall see what it brings.....

Thanks for sharing your challenges,victories and why/when and how to get back to the basics.

Everything that happens in our life is an opportunity for growth. Do not waste time with negative self-judgment. Learn the lesson and move on.

Keep us posted.

Hope to see many of you at December support group
