Thanksgiving is supposed to be a day of expressing our gratitude to ourselves and to those around us. We celebrate life, blessings and the company of those we love! We also indulge in delicious food, quite possibly a few times throughout the day....and we are not telling U to stop this tradition!! Yes U read that right, if you want to indulge do it!
What we don't want U to do is wake up on Friday and feel guilty and full of remorse for what U ate. We are in the middle of a 30 day clean eating challenge at the studio and we have had multiple discussions on how to handle turkey day. There are two approaches and its up to U to choose what U do on Thanksgiving day. Here are the two approaches we discuss and recommend:
1.) Eat whatever U want on Thanksgiving Day, but wake up Friday back on track. Dig deep into your pocket of discipline Friday morning eat clean and try to move around-whether its shopping or an intense workout-Get Moving!! Know U have the discipline and strength within U to enjoy your Thanksgiving Day and wakeup the next day with no regrets and no guilt....drink lots of water Friday to flush out all the sodium and sugar, eat lots of veggies and enjoy the memories of Thanksgiving Day.
2.) If U know yourself, and know that U can't indulge without spiraling out of control on Friday (and maybe even the days/weeks after) then maybe U need to be the one to make healthier choices on Thursday. Skip the gravy, pie and stuffing and bring a veggie tray to munch on. Eat the turkey and potatoes but skip the toppings. There are ways to make Thanksgiving a little bit more healthy. And don't let other skew your way of thinking or beliefs.
Whichever path U take on Thanksgiving be proud and live with no guilt!
Choose U...choose what U know U can mentally and emotionally handle. Do not feel guilty for your choices, LIVE, LOVE AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
WE ARE SO SO THANKFUL FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF U!! THANK U FOR CHOOSING EVOLVE U AND ALLOWING US TO BE PART OF YOUR JOURNEY!!
We want U to KEEP MOVING & become STRONGER EVERYDAY. Evolve into U.
