Today I was feeling a little anxious and stressed, and it occurred to me I haven't exercised since Monday! I decided to go for a walk/run, then push ups, squats, abs, and stretching. Immediately I felt relaxed and ready for the rest of the day, a.k.a. Thanksgiving dinner. I went a little crazy eating dinner, but you know what? I don't feel guilty at all. None. Zilch. Nada. Really, it's just one day, one meal. Now immediately back to healthy eating. No snacking tonight and lots of H2O to help with excess restaurant sodium. Then in the morning I'll continue living a healthy lifestyle with nutritious food and healthy exercise.
Do you throw all caution to the wind and allow treats on Thanksgiving or do you maintain a strict healthy eating plan even at Thanksgiving?
Take care & have a great Friday!
