Ah, tis the day after the Thanksgiving weekend. We have all gorged on the delicious table-full of foods: stuffed turkey with heaps of cranberry and gravy dressing, rich and creamy lasagna, pumpkin pie with gallops of ice cream, butter-infused mashed potato, and of course, accompanied by wine.
All this has got to wreck havoc on our waistline!
Is it the day after, and you habitually put on your pants, only to find that they are a little too snug? And you even try on the elastic-band pants but still feel the elastic too close for comfort?
Well, it might be time for some hard-core detox, which calls for buckling down and steer our paths back to the sure and tried way of a healthy lifestyle.
The best way to get back into shape is immediacy. I just walked by a billboard that said “Procrastinator’s Anonymous Meeting”. Then underneath the sign, it said “cancelled again”. It is meant to be a joke…but it is so true. We keep procrastinating from getting back into a healthy routine, that we procrastinate to the point where it becomes a habit to do so.
So…what does it mean to shake that turkey jerky? You know the turkey “junk in your trunk”? Well, you just have to jerk it off: dust off your work-out clothes, hop back on the treadmill, follow up with consistent and adequately proportioned meals….and with much persistence, you will see a difference!
I myself am trying to start up this routine. It is excruciatingly painfully hard and tough…but I am determined to keep at it…until Halloween and Christmas roll around. But I will do all I can before the holidays take over!
Some programs you can do:
-bootcamp (which usually runs outdoor ran or shine)
Just remember, have fun while doing this, and love every second of it, even the sweaty, frustrating parts because that’s what makes you stronger!
