The Average Weight Gain For The Holidays Is.....


I'm actually really surprised about this. Apparently most people gain, on average, about 6 pounds during the holiday season. Is it sad that I thought, "Wow that's not too bad!" I mean I could gain that in a meal....

The biggest temptations, according to this, are: cookies, pies/cakes and home cooked meals. Dude, don't even get me STARTED about home-cooked meals! We have several traditions in my household, including honey-baked ham on Christmas, dutch-baby pancakes Christmas morning, frosted cookies, Bailey's in our coffee, etc. And this year we're going to Vegas- wish us luck! LOL

Do you have a specific food that messes you up during the holidays? Here's a couple peppermint martinis we made last year- YUM!
