5 Thanksgiving Tips for Saving your Waistline
I can’t take credit for all of these. I follow the Girls Gone Strong twitter feed and you can also find a link to their page on my Blogroll. But for those of you who are not avid followers of the Lift like a Girl movement, these are some just great all around tips to save your waistline and burning fat around the Thanksgiving festivities. I’d like to thank Jen Comas Keck for providing me with these tips that I am now passing on to you.
Tip #1 – Get your workout in BEFORE you eat. Can’t get to the gym? No problem! Get a quick outdoor 5K in, there are a plethora of races you can sign up for. Don’t want to pay for it? Just show up and run with the crowd. No one will notice – trust me.
Tip #2 – Indulge in the food that you truly love. Not a turkey lover? Don’t eat it. Only feast upon the things you would deem truly worth it. In case – stuffing, mashed potatoes, and gravy.
Tip #3 – Don’t starve yourself all day to “save room” to pig out. This is not a good idea.
Tip #4 – Eat lots of protein and veggies all through out the day. Most of our families have out finger foods to snack on, eat from the veggie tray, have some egg whites from the deviled eggs, etc.
Tip #5 – Enjoy yourself for today and get right back to your plan (ViSalus, Weight Watchers, Clean Eating, etc) Friday morning. One day (and I really mean only one day) won’t ruin all of your hard work up until this point.
Thank you all for taking the time to read/follow my blog! I wish you and you family a wonderful Thanksgiving.
