Post Thanksgiving

What’s done is done. There’s no going back. If you feel like you ate right and exercised yesterday, give yourself some praise. If you’re disappointed in how you ate, let it go. It’s time to move on and get back on track. Life’s too short.

If you have a long weekend, use it to get in a little more exercise. If you’re staying with family, gather a group and go for a long walk. Chat with each other and the time will pass quickly. Or pull out an ancient exercise video–preferably one from the 80’s with Raquel Welch or Richard Simmons. See if you and your family can do it with a straight face. First one to laugh has to run around the house three times or do one set of push-ups. Make exercise fun and do it with the ones you love. It’s good for everyone.

Or, try pulling your belly button to your spine. That is always a good way to engage muscles and start thinking about your body and what it needs.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
