Day 25: Turkey Day Aftermath

screen-shot-2016-11-25-at-5-09-01-am

The day after a big eating holiday can go a few different ways.

  1. Sit around feeling bloated
  2. Sit around feeling bloated then reach for leftovers
  3. Go shopping and walk off some calories
  4. Knock out yesterday abs, today’s hips then go for a run!

Unless you have to work, you can probably make time for activity today! Don’t sit around making yesterday worse…get up and get moving! Who’s going for a run today? Who skipped abs yesterday and has some catch up work to do? (Me!)

I am not a Black Friday shopper. In fact, I avoid stores at all costs today. We do have plenty of leftover turkey and ham so sandwiches it is!

Since we are home and have no pressing matters, I plan on being active and getting outside for a while. What are your plans today?

Day 25 exercises: Hips – 3 sets of 10 

****Click here for how to videos****

  • Brigid’s Runner Clams
  • Side Lying Leg Lift
  • Reverse Clam (feet up)
  • Forearm Plank – :60
  • Pigeon Pose – :30 each side

Bonus: Go for a run! Remember “active recovery” after our racing yesterday is a good thing! Go for a shake out run. Keep it slow and easy and just have fun being outside and burning some calories. In this case, “active recovery” can also refer to recovering from the aftermath of our Thanksgiving meal! So go on….get up and be active today Crew!

Do yourself a favor and avoid the scales today. No reason to make yourself crazy. Lace up and go outside instead! 🙂
