Most people who know me know that I'm a massive foodie. I know my limits and make sure I work out regularly and push the hydration. This allows me to go "ham" on some ham without too many repercussions to my waistline.

It's my favorite time of year. People tend to be more grateful for the little things in life and I'm all for the positive vibes -- whether it's coming together as a community to ensure that our neighbors have a turkey on their table or visiting family and old friends to catch up on life. Too often, we tend to forget about the present and stress too much about the future.
