    I typically don’t gain any weight during holidays as I always watch what I eat and I try to go to the gym regularly. If I am somewhere on vacation where I don’t have access to the gym, I make sure I walk around a lot to burn extra calories.

    I generally stay the same. For a few days I eat whatever I want and drink a lot of wine, but being a lactose intolerant vegetarian means my options are pretty limited, and mostly fairly healthy. When we are away I can’t get to a gym because there isn’t one in the little seaside town where we stay, but I get in a quick 5k run followed by a surf most mornings, so I’m still pretty active.

    I’m going to allow myself 2 cheat days, a week apart.  The rest of the time, I’ll be on my usual perma diet.

    I’m trying to get a couple of lbs under my ideal weight before my cheat day, so I’ll have breathing room.

    I stay the same.  I don’t really eat more or laze around more because it’s holiday.  Sometimes I lose a bit, because I become more active (e.g. shoveling snow, carrying firewood, etc), but on those days, I naturally become hungrier so I think I eat more to fill up that extra negative calories…haha
