1. Your holiday food plan
When this season hits, you’re eager to click open e-vites. Sip cocktails. Bake yourself into a sugar coma. But once the fun fades? You’re craving cookie-free cabinets and elasto-waist pants. “The holidays feel like a drawn-out special occasion, when really they’re single days, and so much of the excitement involves food,” notes Lisa Shaub, a Weight Watchers personal coach. “Then you say, ‘I’ll get back on my A-game on Monday.’ Then it’s ‘next week.’ Then it’s ‘I’ll be better in January.’” But starting the new year in desperate diet mode is no fun. Instead, have a food master plan and learn to hit the reset button faster so you can enjoy more and regret less.
