    During the holidays, chowing down that peanut brittle or pecan pie sounds not only like a good idea, it sounds like an obligation. We mean the holidays are meant to wear that really bad Christmas lights necktie and to put on a few pounds.

    It all seems like a good idea  until you try to slip into those jeans that fit you pretty well in November.    Now, you don't even remember if the pie was that good, but you do know all your clothes seem to be a little tight.

    The average American puts on six pounds in December, and no doubt tries to lose them all in January. If you're one of those who has sworn to resume exercising in 2011, we have a great place for you to start.

    Go to The Grove Monday Jan. 3 at 8:45 a.m. for a free workout led by one of the toughest TV trainers who ever yelled at a fattie: Jillian Michaels of "The Biggest Loser".

    She now has a gig with the TV show Extra, where she will be bringing her inspirational personality. 

    If you're going, wear comfy clothes and sneakers.   Save the Advil for later.
