Well let me tell you, there's nothing quite so thrilling as peeing in the woods to make a Turkey Trot memorable. Thanks, gents, for making your arrival known to me before we became much better acquainted!
I set a goal going into the 15k Trot of 1:33, and by my watch I finished at 1:33:16. Not bad considering I spent about a minute and a half de-tangling myself from a sticker bush and finding a nice big oak tree to pee behind around mile three! I don't know what this thing is with having to go during races, but I am so over it. Not cool, bladder. It was funny the first time but we're not doing that again. Please make a note of it.
Anyway, Thanksgiving was a low-key affair for me. As you know, I am not a big fan of the eating holidays; they're just mine fields for overdoing it in the name of sentimentality. So I kept all of my Turkey Tips in mind and made it a really healthy day: a nice long run and lots of clean eats including a big Thanksgiving salad full of spinach, turkey, unsweetened dried cranberries, and toasted walnuts. I planned on making my healthy pumpkin pie, but decided to skip it. My husband doesn't really care for pie, I could live without it, and I didn't want a whole pie sitting around, so I considered it a sign from the Turkey Gods that I just was not meant to gain a pound this Thanksgiving. Thank you, Turkey Gods! I was rewarded with a nice calorie deficit this morning according to my GoWear Fit. A deficit of 29 calories, but hey I am so counting that as a victory. Take THAT Thanksgiving!
And now Christmas is rushing towards us like a steam engine. That means it's time to kick things into high gear! Over the next month, I'll be here with tips, workouts, recipes, and more to help make your holiday a healthy one. Starting off - my Black Friday workout at Boot Camps to Go.
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Now wake up! Naptime is over!
The holidays are here!
