Well, I have been going to the gym in spurts still, better than nothing but hope to improve on that as time carries on.
I have already had one Thanksgiving gathering and I was a hearty eater. My friends can really cook. I went to Body Pump before and after the event, and hit the elliptical hard too.
I wonder if my muscles are any bigger??
I have been working on my Body Pump form, I have a ways to go, I have plenty of underused muscles!
My friend wrote this little piece with suggestions to help prevent overeating during the holidays, check it out if you please!
Yeah, one of my good friend is an obesity researcher. You would think her research results would rub off on me! Yeah right. Once I was in one of her weight management studies, but I was put in the control group; how's that for impartial!
Oh, did I tell you I bought chop sticks to try to eat less? I actually bought a chopstick helper:
We'll see how that goes. I eat a lot of black beans and salsa, so that may be messy.
Good luck out there! Practice mindful eating! Savor every bite and then walk it off!
