I am taking a short trip to my native land Australia, in a month. I will be using these tips to stay in shape while I indulge in everything aussie.

However, as far as diet and exercise regimens go this time of year seems to be a long drawn out nightmare. Every time I get through a holiday and just start to get back on track with my eating, here comes another one to throw me off again. I've long since given up the fight to resist all the awesome food that my family works so hard to bring to the table.
