Hey all! It’s Thanksgiving already! AHH! Many tend to binge on this day and eat everything out of house and home. I’m not here to tell you how and what to eat…eat what you want, but be prepared for the consequences!
Here are my tips for eating at big parties and holidays!
1.) Start the day with a big glass of water.
2.) Get an early morning walk or run (or even a stretch!) in if you can!
3.) Do not graze at the table! Put what you want on your plate and WALK AWAY!
4.) Only eat the foods you love. Don’t waste those calories!
5.) Going back for seconds? Go for protein and (non saucy) vegetables…if you can find any!
6.) Keep the breads/rolls to a minimum, and if you have to butter them, use a small amount!
7.) Drink some more water….then do it again.
8.) Just because everyone else is eating it, doesn’t mean you have to! Keep YOUR goals in mind!
9.) Your CALORIES don’t know that it’s THANKSGIVING so all rules STILL APPLY!
10.) Get back to your normal eating and workout routine ASAP. One day won’t be a HUGE deal in the grand scheme of things, but many days off will make a difference! (If you need help with eating during the holidays, then I invite you to join our 21 Day Hunger-Free and Healthy Challenge!)
Now, I’m ready to announce the 2 winners (randomly chosen!) for Karen Ehman’s new book, “LET.IT.GO”! Please contact me ASAP with your mailing address! firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, I want to leave you with a video that I posted last year. This touches me every single year. No matter the circumstance you are in, the body you own, the family you interact with, or the finances you do or don’t have…
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18
