Today is Thanksgiving, so I’m sure what’s on all of our minds is the huge feast ahead of us as well as the regrets afterward and a couple of long strenuous workouts. That’s what’s on my mind anyway. To be honest, I don’t know what to do. I always read about how you’re supposed to just eat a small portion and stick to healthy snacks, but you have no idea how much disrespect my family would take if I did something like that. My family is full of cooks who are very proud of the food they make and they expect the family to eat it.
So my plans are to eat almost like I would if I wasn’t trying to stay fit, cut down a little, but still come home from my Grandparents house stuffed, and plan on working out hard for the next few days. I really hope I can push myself over the next few days though, because I have a feeling my diet is going to hell. Plus I have family from all over coming into town who I know are gonna want to have some drinks too, so the next four days are gonna wreak havoc on my body.
Oh well. It’s fun times with family I rarely get to visit with, and it only happens once a year. Well, sometimes twice a year, because the family sometimes comes out for Christmas too. I’m determined to keep the fat off though, so I just have to work that much harder during the holidays. I hope you all do better than I probably will. Let me know how things work out! Happy Thanksgiving and good luck!
