Fight Holiday Fat with alli

One of the things that I love about the holidays is the food. My mom is the best cook that I know and so I tend to give myself a free pass when it comes to eating around Christmas time. Not only do I stuff my face on Christmas Eve, - yes I will have extra tortellini carbonara and chocolate mousse, thank you very much - but I am also sent home with leftover to continue the gluttony. I justify this behavior by reminding myself that my new diet and exercise plan will start on January first. Now I have a tool that can help me fight holiday fat. combines three core elements for the weight conscious during the holidays: diet, physical activity and motivation in an easy-to-use interface. It helps track goals and prepare for long-term success with features including:
• Follow-along fitness videos; from cross training to yoga / pilates
• Healthy (reduced calorie, low-fat) daily meal suggestions and recipes
• Custom calorie and activity tracking
• Community and social features and forums
• Smart phone accessibility
• Expert tips and tricks

Every year my one and only resolution is to lose weight and get in shape. But every year I completely fail. This year I am determined to make a real go of it. My biggest hindrances seem to be lack of time and motivation. Now that I have a few hours with all four kids in school a few days a week, lack of time is no longer a valid excuse. However motivation is still something I need help with and probably always will. This site is something that can really help me with that. The feature that i think is the most helpful for me is the schedule. When you set up your profile it will have you select the kind of workouts you want to do and then put it into a schedule for you. Each day has a workout listed for you including what to do and video tips.

 When you set up your profile, you will also enter in your height and current weight plus your goal weight and it will calculate what you daily calorie count should be. You can then enter in everything you eat and drink to make sure you are staying within your goal. has the tools you need to monitor your calories, help you find healthy recipes and set up an exercise routine to help you meet your fitness goals. I have only been using this for two weeks now but I am looking forward to continuing with it into the New Year. Especially once I start running in two days!
