How R U Handlling the T-Day Feast?

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

The question has been going around about how are you going to handle the calorie temptation of the Thanksgiving Day Feast. Well, my family (small family of 3) and I have decided to make life a little easier by treating the meal as any other meal. We're having a turkey and making one serving per person of the various side dishes. Although there may be a little more of them (i.e. 3-4 instead of the usual 1-2) there will be NO leftovers, except for the turkey. And we decided to limit the desert to 1 small portion of each.

I expect my calories to be high but not astronomical (Hopefully). Anyway I've been racking up the cardio minutes this week and keeping to the low end of my daily calorie intake to help offset the munch out session on T-Day. Well, that's the plan anyway. Hopefully it won't go the way of most plans for mice and men and even if it does no worries. I'll just dust myself off and get back on the proverbial horse.

    I plan to hit the gym around 9am and do at 60 mins of Cardio. Go home and eat a light breakfast. My Aunt is cooking so I will have to really concentrate on portion control. Nobody in my family is concerned about there weight at the moment, so its up to me to keep myself in control. Your plan sounds great!!
