I am not going to gain 5 lbs during the Holidays, I am not! It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is a week away! I just now bought my turkey and put it in the freezer until Sunday. Last year I thought I was ahead of the game by buying a fresh turkey 2 weeks from Thanksgiving. Well...that didn't work out so well. Needless to say, lesson learned. Have I ever told you that I really don't like to cook? I love my kitchen, but just to socialize in or drink hot tea. My guest Brenda Sharp loves to cook and she is planning on tweaking her favorite dishes to make them healthy for the Holidays. I hear that Brenda is an amazing cook!

With the Holidays upon us we talked about the importance of having a plan in place. A plan for eating and fitness. My eating plan is to eat lite for breakfast and then eat the big meal at lunch time. I really don't plan on eating much for dinner, maybe some fruit or possibly another piece of strawberry pretzel salad. Brenda will be away for the Holidays, spending time with her family in San Francisco. She plans on walking across the Golden Gate Bridge, walking in the park and in the city and taking the stairs when she visits Alcatraz. Her trip sounds like my kind of vacation!

We had some fun with the exercise segment. Brenda brought in a frozen turkey and demonstrated turkey swings. It was hilarious and I would suggest you giving this a try yourself, you will have so much fun! The turkey swing has been going on in my home for years, my family just looks at me like, "Here she goes again."
