Happy Thanksgiving! This is a great time of year to pause and be thankful for all that we have – especially our health. Here are a few tips for maintaining your weight and keeping fit throughout the holiday season. Enjoy!
1. Stuff the turkey, not your belly! – When you’re full, stop eating. Besides, who really likes that bloated, achy feeling anyway? So once you feel satisfied, push your plate away from yourself – it’ll help stop the nibbling as you sit and chat with family and friends.
2. Throw away your “on the diet” vs. “off the diet” mentality. So you indulge a little on Thanksgiving day. That’s no reason to continue the trend on Black Friday and beyond. Return to the healthy habits the very next day and prove to yourself that YOU are in control.
3. Be active! Instead of sitting around with that sleepy feeling after you eat, resist the temptation and move a little! Grab a few of your loved ones and go for a walk around the neighborhood. Play freeze tag with the little ones – they’ll love the attention they’re getting! Toss a football back and forth during halftime of the game – who knows, maybe a little game of your own will break out. The opportunities are endless and can create memories that will last a lifetime.
