I have a few posts to share about how I’ve managed Thanksgiving while working on my fit goals I am sharing them for you as well as reminders for me!!
This was my first Tgiving DW (during weightloss) – I had signed up for a holiday transformation challenge that purposely covered Tgiving thru New Year’s. So my goal was to be ON point even on the holidays. It wasn’t that bad
Even if you are not planning to be strict on that day it has some tips for not eating EVERYTHING in sight haha
And this is a post from my 2nd year AW (after weightloss) – this year I was a little more lax but still wanting to practice moderation. I list strategies for doing that The last paragraph explains why it’s important to ME to do that. A lot of people in the fitness community say “oh don’t worry about it, just practice moderation and you’ll be fine” but moderation is a different concept, and very different in practice, for a previously overweight person than it is for someone that’s been fit for years – I’m sorry but it just is… my version of moderation landed me 60# overweight… I didn’t eat boxes of Little Debbie’s at a time, I *thought* I WAS moderating… it’s not natural to everyone… some of us have to learn it (again and again haha) and practice it consciously. Last year I went a bit overboard, not in one big binge mind you, but I moderated each day a little too much and gained about 3 pounds over the holiday – not bad but that kind of thing adds up! And it kind of proves my theory that it is not something as natural to me a I’d like it to be…
Thought you’d enjoy a visual of my grocery sale muscle food at this time of year
