While I've already posted Christmas-themed entries from Discovery News and Tipsy Bartender, it turns out both accounts posted more while I was traveling to and from Chicago for Christmas. In the interest of completeness and because I'm still in an "I can't be all DOOM all the time" mood, here they are, beginning with Discovery News explaining Why You Should Still Exercise Over the Holidays.
Between Thanksgiving and New Year's there are so many opportunities to overeat. A little weight gain may be inevitable - even if you exercise! But don't let that discourage you from working out over the holidays. Guest host Annie Gaus explains the health benefits.For more tips on this topic, read Losing weight after the holidays.

Yes, I know combining drink recipes with health tips isn't consistent, but as I wrote in Pie drinks for Thanksgiving, "I'm not the most consistent person, which is why I named my blog after Crazy Eddie."
