So the holidays are upon us
and that means trying to juggle all the fitness, nutrition, family, friends and food… Where does one begin??? Thankfully, Fork Lift Fitness + Nutrition put together a little Thanksgiving Survival Guide to help us on our journey. By all means, indulge and enjoy yourself during the holidays, that’s what they are for! But if you are trying to stick to some sort of a program eating properly can be a challenge. Follow some of these tips to stay the course (see what we did there;))
ALL YOU CAN EAT
Protein & veggies
HALF YOUR PLATE
Fats from meat (eat the skin!), butter, oils & nuts
JUST A TASTE
Casseroles - because they are harder to track.
Homework: Sit in front of My Fitness Pal. Plug in all the typical Thanksgiving foods you might see on your table. Then, adjust the portion sizes to numbers that work within your own macros or calorie load. If pumpkin pie is your favorite, plug that in FIRST. Think you'll want some wine during the day? Put that in next! Then work backwards with the rest.
Don’t come unglued if you get off track. Know that just as you got derailed you can get right back on track again.
If you are visiting friends and family and need to get a workout in, try doing body-weighted exercises that can be done in a small space, get your heart rate elevated and keep it quick (no more than 30Min.).
Don’t be that weirdo who only wants to workout and won’t spend time with friends and family.
Try looking up some local gyms/boxes if you can’t get motivated by yourself. Drag a friend with you for some added support. Turkey trot it up! That is a fantastic way to come together and get some cardio in before all the food happens.
Remember, the holidays come and go quickly! They’ll be gone in a flash so all the planning, agonizing, anticipation and excitement will come to an end quicker than the leadup and you’ll be right back to your old routine in no time. Enjoy all of your time with your loved ones!
We hope these little tips have helped!
