Thanksgiving: Staying on Track – kinda……ish…..

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!! I know I THOROUGHLY enjoyed all the delicous pie. nom nom nom. (I actually didn’t even eat any turkey on Thanksgiving. Whoops!) After a very filling holiday, I followed it up with a party and even MORE delicous food aaannnndd snacks aaaannnddd ice cream cake! So, like we said when we introduced ourselves, we like to eat healthy and exercise MOST of the time, but I also need to get in on the “bad” stuff and live alittle or I’d lose my mind.

I did however make sure to stay on track with working out. I would be lying if I didn’t admit that sometimes my motivation for my AM workout is so I can enjoy an extra glass of wine (or Christmas Ale) later.

Below are my workouts for the past week. I usually shoot for 6 a week but I was busy/sleepy/food hungover/regular hungover so I only got 5 in. Before each of these workouts I do 30 minutes of cardio. For me, this is generally running because I’m obsessed with it and it makes me happy. I also have asthma, and running makes breathing so much more comfortable for me. Its not everyone’s cup of tea and there is nothing wrong with that! Find whatever works for you. Walking? Biking? Elliptical? Jump Roping? Boxing? There are so many options. Find something that works for you. And don’t worry if you don’t have 30 minutes….. Fit it in when you can. Work up to it. You’ll get there and who knows, maybe you’ll end up loving it the way I love running!
