Postscript: Keeping the Holiday Pounds at Bay

After reading Chris' insightful blog entry, I would like to add a final note: don't be afraid to "overtrain" for a couple of days before a holiday or holiday party.

Strenuous workouts burn a few extra calories for a day or two after the workout. This will help save your butt in the long run.

Now, this does not give you license to eat everything in site for days afterwards — however, it does assist in burning extra calories when you need them during your holiday binge.
