I'd just like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas in advance of Santa's impending arrival upon our shores (the waiting is almost over).
I do certainly hope that those wish lists written and posted to the North Pole are wholly fulfilled, regardless of whether they consisted of a desire for material items, or simply to be graced with the presence of loved ones, who may have been absent in Christmas' gone by for one reason or another.
Equally, my thoughts are also with those who've experienced loss and bereavement, particularly since the festive period is always an incredibly difficult time as it continues to pass in the absence of our dearly beloved.
As for worries concerning the impending nutritional excess, it's simply 48 hours.
Provided you've all been good (and not bad), in the run up, there's no reason why Christmas Day and Boxing Day shouldn't be enjoyed in the manner which they're intended.
Besides, four days exist between Boxing Day and New Years' Eve to re-introduce calorie deficits, healthy eating and exercise, thus, ensuring that two days off-plan don't result in total derailment over the festive period.
For those who do happen to accumulate a little weight over the next week, rest assured, it will be lost once eating habits return to normal.
