The holidays are approaching, and many will indulge, skip workouts, be stressed, and gain weight during this jolly season. You don’t have to be one of them. Instead of denying yourself the fun of holiday treats, or beating yourself up for indulging in them afterward, allow yourself to splurge when it’s really worth it.

Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Hannukah are culturally-important holidays and while we applaud you for wanting to keep those six-packs, it’s also important to spend time with family and recreate long-standing traditions that have been observed for generations.
