Celebrity trainer tips to avoid the Holiday Weight Gain

BOBBY STROM, celebrity trainer who has worked with Jessica Biel and Britney Spearsand whipped Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively into shape for “Green Lantern”

description
"Give yourself one meal a week. Christmas dinner is only one meal, not a three day long event. For that one meal, say, 'I’m going to have some candied yams and pumpkin pie and potatoes.' That’s it. Doesn’t mean you eat like crap for the whole day. Before you eat something think, 'If it’s not worth it, don’t waste it.' If someone says, 'You have to try this cake it’s awesome!' Ok, maybe it’s worth the calories. But picking at a bowl of pretzels—that’s not worth the work you’ll have to do to take it off."

Emails from Out Readers 

Peggy Jo,
  I was wondering if you could do us a favor and put this information about Nancy Dailey in your newsletter.  Nancy  lived just west of where we live.  You probably  heard about the homicide that occurred on our block on November 20th, well that was Nancy.  I know there are a lot of people that get your newsletter that knew Nancy and have been asking me for details and I have been keeping those I have emails for in the loop.  However, there may be others that may also like to know the Memorial details.

Naturally I thought of you and your newsletter.  It would be great if you could put her picture with the arrangements in your newsletter.  However I also understand if this is not possible.   This information was taken off the Pixley website.

  Thank you for your assistance.  
   Tim
