Happy Friday! Today I’m linking up for Friday Five 2.0 with Rachel from Running on Happy and Lacey and Meranda from Fairytales and Fitness. Thank you ladies for hosting this linkup!
I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving. If you’re like me, you probably indulged a little too much yesterday…but that’s okay! Here are a few ways you can get back on track today!
Black Friday Shopping
If you’re brave enough to deal with all of the crowds and craziness today – you’re amazing! Personally I can’t do it because I hate crowds, but I can guarantee that you’ll get in at least 10,000 steps going from store to store in search of sales. That’s an easy way to log a minimum of five miles today. Get moving!
Go for a Run
Probably the easiest way to get in some activity today – go for a run! Better yet, why not start a holiday run streak today?
Green Drink/Healthy Smoothie
For many, yesterday was filled with turkey, stuffing, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, alcohol and various pies and cakes. That’s a WHOLE lotta calories! What’s one way to get back on track today? Start off your morning with a tall glass of water and a green drink or healthy smoothie! When you start your day off with a healthy option, it’s much easier to make healthy choices for the rest of the day. Plus it’s always a great thing to start off the day with tons of vegetables.
Going to the gym or going for a run is a great way to get in some exercise today, but what about the not-so-typical forms of exercise? Are you cleaning up the house after guests? Well you’re burning a lot of calories washing dishes, vacuuming, changing bed sheets, etc.
Pick a race
This is a really fun way to help you get back on track, mentally. After your workout today, keep the motivation going and sign up for a goal race. Is this the year you want to run a half marathon? Go for it! Pick a race and then select your training plan. Not only will this make you feel good today, but it gives you something to look forward to in the future!
That’s it! Do you have any tips for how to recover from a food hangover?
