Happy almost Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love all the traditions we have, the food, and believe it or not the fitness! We almost always try to get in a workout pre-dinner every year. Sometimes it is a game of football, a turkey trot, or just a quick workout. I feel so much better if I workout before I eat and even take a walk with the dogs after the big meal.
This year we will be traveling but we will still be doing a 5k turkey trot in my hubby’s hometown. It is a really fun one too. They hide frozen turkeys along the route ad as you run you can pick up these frozen turkeys. Last year my hubby picked up two and ran with them! He rocks. We donated one and came home and baked the other to have some leftovers of our own.
If you can’t get out to a turkey trot you can always do this awesome workout at home or at the gym pre-dinner.
I also always try to take something healthy to the dinner. This year I am in charge of a side and a dessert. Last year I made this super easy fruit tray and it was a big hit.
I think I will make it again along with this healthy version of the Starbucks cranberry bliss bars. I love all her recipes and meal plans. I use them weekly.
Have an amazing Thanksgiving and let me know if you have any great recipes or workouts I should try.
