THANKSGIVING DAY WORKOUT1 300x152 Enjoy a healthier ThanksgivingEnjoy a healthier Thanksgiving Day by joining us Thanksgiving Morning for a pre-feast workout like no other!

When: Thursday, 9:00 am

Where: South Boston, Joe Moakley Park Tennis Courts (directions)

Who: You!  And your friends & family (all are welcome)

Fee: FREE!!

If you can’t join us, just remember the following:

1)       Eat Breakfast so you won’t be starving at the next meal.

2)      Don’t snack all day & drink lots of water.

3)      Chew your food slowly & watch your portion size. It takes your stomach nearly 20 minutes to signal to your brain that it is full. If you are trying to control your portion size, then slowing down and chewing is crucial.  Moreover, chewing your food aids healthy digestion.  Breaking foods down more thoroughly ensures proper nutrient absorption and can prevent indigestion issues such as acid reflux.

You can still enjoy all the fun holiday treats just choose smaller portions and you can enjoy whatever you want.

4)      Don’t waste your time or calories on foods you can enjoy all year.

5)      Lighten up on your cooking. Try to use fat free chicken broth for cooking or use fat free sour cream for dips.

6)      Go easy on the alcohol. Lots of unwanted and wasted calories.turkeytrot 21 300x198 Enjoy a healthier Thanksgiving

7)      BE ACTIVE. Start off the day with a workout. Burning calories early will set the tone for the rest of the day. You may feel guilty when you eat all those sugary snacks later in the day. Stay active through out the day. Go for a walk after dinner, or try to do some type of activity/exercise every 20 – 30 minutes.  Ex: 20 mountain climbers each leg, 10 burpees, 30 jumping jacks, etc.

We have much to be thankful for, so don’t forget to laugh, hug and reminisce as much as possible.  Have a Happy Thanksgiving, we at Fearless F.I.T.T. & F.I.T.T. Body BootCamp wish you the best.
