Yes, I’m talking about all the cocktails that are around this holiday season! Here are some comparisons to help visualize what you are receiving.
1 pint of Guiness with 210 calories = 1 cup of sweet potato casserole
1 cup of spiked egg not with 14 grams of fat = 3 gingerbread man cookies
6oz glass of red wine with 150 calories = 3oz of honey baked ham
8oz of Jack and coke with 200 calories = 2 bread rolls
8oz vodka tonic with 32 grams of sugar = 1 slice of pecan pie
You’ve seen the gift boxes and thank you notes around the gym…Say thanks to someone special!
We all at some point in our lives have become “wrapped up” in our daily living activities that we forget about those people around us that make those daily activities easier to do. So take a moment to give thanks and everybody wins.
Fill out a thank you card (we have them for you), And place it in one of the wrapped gift boxes. Each week, we will be doing multiple drawings and giving away a lot of free goodies. If your note is drawn, not only will your recipient win, but you will too!
The drawings will continue through Black Friday. If your thank you was not drawn for a prize, the person you want to acknowledge will still win a small gift. We will even send the thank you card to the person of your choice for you.

Compare the pomegranate to another snack such as a pumpkin muffin (a favorite seasonal item) contains 53g of sugar from local bakeries (less if homemade). This sugar is added. While pumpkin by itself has 3.2g of sugar it does also contain a lot of beneficial nutrients such as vitamin A, C, B6, potassium, iron, calcium and magnesium. The rest of the sugar in the muf
