thanksgiving week routine
I remember years ago when Thanksgiving week would be the start of serious stress for me.
I'd start to freak out about my weight, all the goals I hadn't accomplished that year, everything I needed to get done before Christmas etc etc. Then would try EVERYTHING to avoid gaining weight. Until I got over that and would be like "f*it" and start over-indulging. Really a lose-lose.
But not anymore...we're taking back control this year!
My Thanksgiving Week Routine
I've learned a LOT through my own weight-loss journey and have figured out how to finally have a happy, HEALTHY Thanksgiving week routine.
My personal goal this week is keep my foundation strong. For me that's my morning routine + These two musts:
1.Get in my daily workouts in the MOVE App - that includes getting 30 minutes in Thanksgiving Morning. Exercise reduces stress and increases endorphins. Less stress means you'll make more mindful food choices.
2. Stick to normal eating times and foods 90% of the week and choose what's worth indulging in... Definitely lots from the Holiday Survival Guide & Recipe Book!
I'll be scheduling my workouts, meal planning daily and adding in the additions below so I can build it out and hold myself accountable.
