Thanksgiving Tips!

Good afternoon. Hope you are all having a fabulous morning! Monday's are early for me, I wake up at six and pretty much I am busy all day. I do however, always make time for my personal training, and so should you!!!

Thanksgiving is a few days away and with this beautiful holiday comes over-eating, binging, and getting off track. Let me give you a few simple tips to fight the holiday bulge.

First, get up and exercise in the A.M. This will raise your heart rate which in turn burns calories. You will burn more throughout the day by warming up your body. It's like warming up your car, an hour later if you touch the hood, it's still warm.

Second, eat the white meat of the Turkey. The white Turkey meat has fewer fat and calories.

Third, stay away from snacking. If you know you are going to be eating a high calorie dinner then don't eat the snacks or apetizers. Eat a healthy breakfast i.e. oatmeal with blueberries, and stay away from the snack foods.

Fourth, If you are going to consume a traditional Thanksgiving meal with mashed potatoes, dressing, etc....skip desert. Choose one or the other. Have some healthy white meat with a salad if your going to eat desert. Don't do both.

These are just simple tips......USE THEM and stay on track this week!!!

Thank you for reading and no matter what shape and size you are, always love yourself!!!


Make your own cranberry sauce with fresh cranberries and small amount of natural sweetner (agave nectar, honey, etc).
