How Are You Dealing With Your Post-Holiday Pooch?

Water and salads for the next few weeks? Several laps around the block? Tell us how you deal with *that* festive season souvenir that nobody wants.
|

The one thing about the holiday season is that we tend to let ourselves go because we know it is only for those few weeks. Whether its a feast with the fam or experimenting with foreign cuisine on your winter vacay, it just doesn’t feel like the holidays without some measure of pigging out involved. The two go hand in hand like turkey and cranberry sauce.

I was most recently in Hong Kong for the New Year’s Eve weekend. Needless to say, there was plenty, plenty of shovelling-food-into-mouth action. One doesn’t just simply say no to dim sum, bo lo baos, fish siew mais, curry fishballs and Australia Dairy Company. It felt like my entire trip revolved around what I was going to eat next. That, and Disneyland. (New Year’s Eve, fireworks, Disneyland – you get it.) I enjoyed all the food immensely, but I could feel myself putting on the kilos.

I haven’t stepped on the scale yet and I don’t think I will until I feel comfortable enough to do so. Is that stupid? Till then, it is plenty of water, pilates, fresh produce, whole grains, soupy stuff and far less sugar than usual. That’s how I usually deal with my festive pooch. The fact that Lunar New Year – another pig-out season for us – is just around the corner isn’t going to make things any easier.

Tell me – how do you deal with your post-holiday weight gain? What has worked and what hasn’t? Or, are you the sort who avoids holiday season weight gain at all cost?
