Here are some tips to undo the holiday damage some of us did in the last few weeks (me included)

Here are the five most important things a person can do to undo holiday damage:

#1 Start walking today.

#2 Tell people. Go public about your goals and get enablers who reinforce your bad habits out of the way.

#3 Sleep. If you sleep the 7 hours you’re supposed to, you won’t crave carbs as much.

#4 Trick your body. Fool yourself when you’re hungry by drinking water instead or eating or eating simple things like mints that “blow out your taste buds.” It works.

#5 Automate your life. Eat the same healthy option for breakfast. Bring a healthy lunch to work every day. Keep snacks like nuts in your pockets, your desk, anywhere that’s in easy reach, so you will never feel hungry. That, he says, is the real key to weight loss.

Good one Charlie! Prime rib would be another thing to keep in your pockets, but don’t get near any dogs!

GMman I understand, it is 15 deg outside today. Too cold to walk.

I run every morning from my warm bed to the bathroom (the floor is so damm cold)
and then I sit in the car with my esclusive luxus body and make nothing at all ( that is what the bad costummer thinks when they had called a taxi) but I´m good at it
