First thing is first, Happy Thanksgiving!! If you are reading this I hope you are prepping for a day filled with delicious food and quality time with loved ones.
As I was watching the news this morning and drinking my coffee (I love mornings, I know it’s not normal), there was a segment claiming that Thanksgiving is now the biggest fitness day of the year. All this time I’ve been hearing and repeating the age-old “the night before Thanksgiving is the biggest drinking night of the year”, so this came as a surprise to me.
So now I wonder… has the world really become a place where we value health and fitness over binge drinking? Am I just getting old? or is someone lying to us? …this is the same place where stores are now opening at 5pm on Thanksgiving day…
Let’s hope for the first option. It seems like many gyms this year have special Thanksgiving morning classes, which is awesome. I was planning to go to hot yoga, but I had to re-arrange a few things so I’m going to try to squeeze in a circuit workout. Something like the 4th workout on this website!
I also thought I would share this awesome Thanksgiving Survival Guide from Spark People, if you’re looking for some additional tips to survive all of the glorious food.
Regardless of whether you work out today or not, let’s all just stay calm and wear our stretchy pants. 🙂
