Hibernation Season

Tomorrow is "Food Day" at the office. I am always really torn about food day because you have no idea where the food came from (read: cats on the kitchen counter) but, some of the best food I have ever eaten has come from a potluck. And by best, I mean I stuff my face until I can't move.

Wanna know what I'm making? Probably not, but I'm going to tell you anyway. If there was one day you wished you worked with me, tomorrow is it. See below.

See, I told you. 

Now, since we all gained weight just by looking at it, let's talk fitness! This time of year is usually my weight gain season. (See above.) Practicing portion control is key during the winter months. All of the potlucks, holiday feasts, and desserts make it hard to stay on track. I don't know about you, but as a full time working mom, I'm exhausted by the time I get home, make dinner, and get Austin to sleep. 

What tips and tricks do you use during the long winter months?

I tend to eat less in the winter because I feel a little more "down" with the cold... but then again I love around less, so it tends to even out and I don't have a problem with it. I guess it also helps I don't live with my parents where huge meals are the norm :)
