Join me LIVE during the broadcast as we discuss strategies to keep fit during the holidays. PLUS we'll talk about how to make healthy, achievable and realistic resolutions for 2013!

So did you survive Thanksgiving? #NHBPM

I did!

We actually had a really, really great Thanksgiving here in San Diego. It was a beautiful day, we had the family together-a good time was had by all.
Less snacking, more crafting!

I'm fortunate that I don't really have to deal with many "food pushers" this holiday season, but if you need some help you can check out the article I wrote for Mamiverse HERE. These tips have gotten me through some serious holiday scrapes!

FINALLY! SheKnows Custom Gift Guide to the Rescue

Tis the season! This is the time of year when I start pouring through every holiday gift guide I can find, trying to zero in on the perfect gift for everyone on my list. Yes, it's fun, but it's so time consuming! I can't tell you how many times I've thought, "I wish I could just plug in my niece's (or co-worker's, or client's) tastes and just get a list of stuff she'll like, already!"


I can't believe it, but the folks at SheKnows have developed a CUSTOM GIFT GUIDE tool, which gives you a list tailored specifically to the Facebook preferences your family and friends!

I hope you're not reading this instead of voting!

I figured I'd veer from the set topics for National Health Blog Post Month and encourage everyone not only to VOTE (seriously, VOTE!) but to consider walking to your polling place if you can. I know some parts of the country are suffering from horrible weather conditions, but if you're in Southern California like me it's a beautiful day to WALK to your polling place. EXERCISE your rights, people!

Need more encouragement? Here, once again, for your information and walker David Balboa and his Dolphin shorts!

Now get walking and VOTE!

Wishing you love with extra cheese-

#NHBPM Share and Cher Alike

Today's topic for National Health Blog Post Month:
Disclosure post. How do you decide what to share? What do/don't you share?

Not that Nacho Mama's Blog is some juicy gossip site, but those of you who've been here for a while (and especially those of you who listen to the podcast) know I share pretty freely when it comes to myself: my health, my body image, my weightloss struggles, my disgraceful baking skills, etc. I don't want to bore you, of course, but you know what they say, "Write/talk about what you know."  I also want to take the opportunity here to say THANK YOU to all of you who have written/tweeted me to tell me that you can relate.
It's TOTALLY not because I'm completely self-aborbed...honest!
Having said that, I do try to have some discretion where the other folks in my life are concerned. I know I have a tendency to "get going" on a story without checking whether the other characters are ok with my sharing our adventures. I don't always succeed in keeping mum, but so far I've managed to keep it from devolving into, well...


What don't YOU share? Do tell! I'm waiting. One ringy-dingy....(btw can we all just take a moment for the majesty that is Lily Tomlin and CHER? If you ever needed the courage to be who you are, look no further, people!)

Wishing you love with extra cheese-
Nacho Mama
