Gotta love Cyber Monday. You sit in the comfort of your own home (or office? Shhh, we won’t tell!), browse through online stores and choose delightful deals for you and your loved ones. And to fuel yourself, you nibble on a few pieces of cheese-topped crackers, gulp down some energy drinks and treat yourself to milk and Twinkies (love that cream filling). All good, right? Until you weigh yourself and discover that although your bank account got lighter, your waistline got bigger. Oops.
