A recap of my weekly workouts from the previous week.
Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great long weekend. I know Mondays are always super hard to get back into things after a few days off, but I hope you had enough time to relax.
I know last week was Thanksgiving and most of you probably enjoyed lots of delicious food – which you totally should. It’s okay to eat the foods you love and enjoy them. Thanksgiving is only once a year and that might be the only time you enjoy your grandma’s homemade pie or your mom’s green bean casserole. Food is meant to be nourishing not only for the body, but for the mind.
That means not over analyzing everything you eat. Trust me – I’ve been there. I remember one year I made my mom make this low fat stuffing (that tasted crappy) because I was so scared to eat too much fat. Stressing about food is just as bad for your health as eating the unhealthy things you normally don’t eat.
So if you did enjoy yourself, don’t sweat it. It’s a new week and you can get back to your normal routine. And no need to punish yourself for what you eat. Go about your normal workout schedule. One day of eating is not going to derail all your progress. Just don’t let one day turn into a week, 2 weeks, a month…
