Oh the holiday season! The rush to the new year can be a blur of presents and pressures and celebrations and caloric overloads. And then we land on the doorstep of a new year, exhausted, and looking squarely into the fresh face of all the potential a new year brings. We make our resolutions, and hope we can keep them. In so many parts of the country, gyms reports an uptick of hopeful participants in the early weeks of a new year.
What about a slight change up this year? Make resolutions before all the holiday pressure avalanches you.

She gives guidance to navigate through the health pitfalls that the holiday season can unfortunately hold. If you aren’t here in Summit, Uri also offers web based support - including ideas about successfully baking at 9,600 feet.
Sugar is so prevalent at the holidays, it's even in the name of the most ordinary Christmas cookie. Maybe you resolve every year to eat less sugar. Well, then you'll appreciate one of the main ways to improve your baking at high altitude — reduce the amount of sugar.
