Between all the extravagant dinners and overflowing glasses of bubbly, staying slim during the holidays is harder than glancing at your bank account after you've finished all your gift shopping. Ugh. But while sweater weather certainly gives you some license to indulge (go ahead, eat the pie), there are plenty of small ways to stay mindful while you fete in order to avoid unwanted weight gain - or worse, feelings of sluggishness when you have such a full calendar! Five pounds is nothing compared to FOMO.
