I want to encourage you to check out this website: http://www.intent.com/
Click all around the thing - it's full of inspirational articles, blog entries, personal aspirations, tips, contemplations and information. The first entry I read made me laugh out loud - it was compassionate as well as funny.
Linda LaRue - the brain behind Crunchless Abs - has a number of great, helpful blog entries on intent.com. There's one in particular to keep in mind throughout this holiday month of eating - it's all about "banking calories" - a really cool concept. Read it!
