Holiday Wellness Challenge


Uncover your eyes and

stop crying over holiday weight gain.

It is not inevitable.

Today’s Challenge:  Weigh yourself and find a wellness buddy and be accountable to each other.

Take the holiday wellness challenge with me. Commit to maintaining your weight and fitness level.  Stay tuned for posts with simple wellness ideas and affirmations that will help you stay on track.

My readers are a mixture of rural Mexican expats and North Americans living in more traditional cities so the advice might involve exercising while dodging the crowds at the mall or walking in solitude at the beach.  We all have the same goal in mind so if the shoe or flip flop fits, wear it.

It happens ever January. Regrets!

You want a do over.

Magazines and blogs make big money selling advice on weight loss and fitness: Lose Weight NOW!, Detox Diet, Sober January, Make a New Year’s Resolution, blah blah blah.

How many times have you waited until January 1st to commit to losing weight, working out, or stopping alcohol. Take action today. Planning is everything. Failing to plan is a set up for failure.


Let’s commit to a “maintain, don’t gain” strategy this year. I have ideas and recipes for success to consider during the hectic month of December. Of course these are good healthy ideas all year long but they are especially helpful during the holiday season. I know you’re busy but it is much easier to keep the pounds off than to lose them later, especially in the middle years. You know that I’m right.
