Thanksgiving is tomorrow 🍗 - and I’m sure you’ve already seen all the posts about “earning” your Thanksgiving dinner or sweating off the turkey. This is a reminder that we don’t have to do cardio or extra exercise because we choose to celebrate a holiday with our loved ones. And we definitely don’t need to resort to restrictive diets, cleanses, or some weird detox to make up for all the “bad” foods we ate the day before. 🙅♀️👎
The stress and food guilt that many of us carry around the holidays does us no good. So I give you permission to let it go and just enjoy the holiday. 🤗
A few tips -
🥧 Eat those foods that you love to eat (whether it’s pumpkin pie, Brussels sprouts, or the stuffing) and savor every bite
💦 Drink plenty of water throughout the day
🥦 Get veggies on your plate when you can
🐾 Go for an after-dinner walk with your family and pet babies -movement does the body good!
🥘 Pick back up with your normal eating habits on Friday
Enjoy yourself and the whole experience with your family and friends! You won’t set yourself back from your goals by doing this one day, I promise. Let us know what foods you’re most looking forward to crushing tomorrow. I’m coming straight for that pumpkin pie.
