I cut myself some slack. That doesn't mean I go crazy not exercising and eating like crazy, but I don't stress when I do. Somehow being able to do what I want helps me make healthier choices. I do try to up my exercise and have often joined some end of the year exercise challenges. In addition to that, on normal days, I try to stay with my usual healthy choices. It may *feel* like every day is a party during the holiday season, but usually for us there are only 4-5 days that are truly a big social event. Reminding myself that just because someone made brownies does not make it a holiday party goes a long ways towards sane eating during the holidays.
