It is Thanksgiving eve and while many of you are running around buying and preparing all the things for the Thanksgiving meal, some of you may be having some real anxiety about the holiday.
I get it. Food and food choices are the source of a lot of anxiety for a lot of people who are trying to be “healthy.”
I know you are especially busy today so I will keep this short and sweet.
3 THINGS YOU CAN DO TO LOWER THE ANGST YOU ARE FEELING
about staying on track with your health goals on Thanksgiving.
1- Plan to do some kind of workout on Thanksgiving morning! You always feel better when you get a workout in, so make it a point to get up and move your body the morning of Thanksgiving.
Try to do a combination of strength training AND CARDIO whether it be steady state or HIIT cardio.
2- NO second helpings. Eat the amount you normally would during an everyday meal. If you are used to weighing out or measuring your food, really try to stick to those same amounts.
NO huge portions of mashed potatos or stuffing – stick to the amounths that you would normally eat whether that is ¼ a cup ½ a cup or a full cup.
3- ONE DESSERT ONLY!!!!!
A bite or two of a few desserts.
Thanksgiving is not an excuse to pile in the desserts. Pick one that is your favorite and
ENJOY every bite.
Bottom line is unless you are literally getting ready for a bodybuilding show there is no need to not enjoy the foods offered at your Thanksgiving meal.
You can enjoy the holiday food guilt free if you plan to move your body before and eat reasonably during.
One meal is not going to undo all your hard work. I promise!!!
Our mission is to help clients believe in themselves and accomplish fitness goals they never thought they could. We believe that accomplishing hard things in the gym equates to being able to conquer the hard things that are thrown at you in life.
