I'm not good at making diet treats. I'd rather make the real thing and eat a smaller portion or workout more to eat a full piece. I know this doesn't work for everyone but I just can't really do diet deserts.
When I saw this recipe for "Skinny Pumpkin Pie" on pinterest I was intrigued - but like half the stuff on there it went to a broken link. Oh well I guess I'll just make real pumpkin pie next week.
I try to stay fit over the holidays and a few of the things I do are:
- don't let 1 meal or treat ruin the entire day
- keep working out
- drink extra water
- try to make my non-party meals extra healthy (protein shakes, low cal, etc)
- make people take home the leftovers (especially desserts)
- don't beat myself up and enjoy the holiday
What do you do to combat the holidays?
Today's workout: spin (after I taught my 45 minute class I just rode the bike for another 40 minutes)
