(They’re coming, they’re coming in their little white coats, Ho Ho, hee hee . . .)

The joyful sugary Holiday season arrives!
Can I be joyful without an overload of sugar?
Time will tell . . .

I mean, we are celebrating after all, sharing with our beloved peeps. We should enjoy ourselves, take pleasure in the moment.

(Which kicks off the annual fitness month, so what the heck . . . ?)

“Get one good bite and savor the taste. You get all the flavor without a big portion.”

Yup. Sometimes I can do that.

Work smart, not hard.
Eat smart, not hard?
