Wow, can you believe Thanksgiving is almost here?! This week has already been full of family and friends and it has been on my mind how thankful I am for my amazing clients, friends, and family. As Thursday approaches, let's stay focused on everything we are thankful for- especially the opportunity we have to live our healthiest life. Let's remember we can stay on track, even in the holiday season! Our Challenge this week for Holiday Extravaganza is to do cardio for 30 minutes each day! You can do it!
During Thanksgiving, the main idea is to remember PORTION CONTROL. You do not have to avoid dessert completely, but focus on being mindful with your portions. Moderation is the key! Maybe decide ahead of time which treat you want to have, and then decide which you could give up. For example- maybe skip the rolls and mashed potatoes, instead choose a sweet potato with honey and turkey, vegetables, and cranberry sauce, and then have a smaller piece or just a few bites of pumpkin pie. Toast some pecans for a healthier treat! Below are 3 Thanksgiving Tips to help you have a healthier and happier Thanksgiving Holiday!
3 Holiday Tips:
- Make a list of why you started your fitness journey and read it before going to your party or meal over the holidays! Keep your goals you set at the beginning of the month in mind!
- It is okay to say "NO" to all the food pushers. You don't have to try everyone's famous recipe or try each of the foods that are sitting out. A healthier way to prepare your turkey is to brine it! Check out this video below from Fire & Flavor to see how to brine the turkey!
3. Exercise over the holidays: Be ready to be flexible, your usually workout time may not work, so try to fit it somewhere else in your schedule. Join us at the Give Thanks 8K Thursday morning!
Take an afternoon walk before or after your meal, admiring the beauty outside and spending some time to be thankful for all He has blessed you with.
