Staying healthy over Thanksgiving can be daunting, especially if you're traveling. I stayed in DFW and was able to keep up with my normal schedule, though I did swap yoga from Thursday to Friday. I did 2 miles (!) on Saturday and then strength training Sunday. I always try not to indulge too much on Thanksgiving, but this year there was so much good food, I had two helpings, and barely had a dinner. I did come home with leftovers, but I had those for dinner Friday.
Dinner? Well, it was two pieces of toast with peanut butter. I didn't feel hungry, but I knew I'd need something so I wasn't starving when I woke up Friday morning. I was on break, so no need for an alarm, and if I woke up early, I could go back to bed after feeding Allie. Trust me, if the cat knows you're awake, you won't get any rest until they're fed.
We do have a number of turkey trots in DFW, especially the YMCA Turkey Trot. That one I think has 40,000 runners. I'm not up to 3 miles yet, only 2, but those 2 miles were painfree! For the first time since pre-March 2013! Of course I'd love to be at 3 miles, but I'm not there yet, and I'm not gonna make my December goal race :(
And just for fun, here's what it's like having a Christmas tree with a cat. I am waging this very battle.
