Get Out Of Your Thanksgiving Rut With These 4 Tips

Now that the Thanksgiving weekend is finally over, are you still feeling sluggish and just blah today? The last thing you might want to do today after too many leftovers, sweets and treats filled your plate all weekend long will be to exercise. After a few days of gorging on food and little exercise the body is going to fight and scream at you. do you get out of the rut of Thanksgiving and start feeling like you again?
1) Exercise...Do it anyways
The last thing you might want to do is exercise, but get your body moving. When you move your body, it helps things in your body move. After a carb heavy feast, your body might be a little sluggish and needs that extra little movement to help your body move those things out. And if you aren't in the mood to exercise, DO IT ANYWAYS! It will help you feel better mentally too. You won't regret doing your workout. Stick with a 30 minute workout like 21 Day Fix using Beachbody On Demand.

2) Drink Water
Drink plenty of water over the next few days to help your body hydrate. Pass on having any sodas or alcohol. Let your body.

3) Do A Cleanse
You can either do an all natural cleanse or I'm doing this 3 day plant based cleanse by Beachbody. The 3 Day Refresh. Even though I ate really well this Thanksgiving I still want to help my body along, because I still ate more than I normally do. This 3 day cleanse will help restore the PH balance in my body, flush out toxins and "stuff" and help relieve the bloating and swelling I have. In just 3 days.

4) Think Positive
No matter what happened this past weekend, it's okay. What's done is done. Don't dwell on what you could have done better, but think positive about what you can do today to help you make a lifestyle change that carries over even during the holidays.

Remember these phrases:

  • Food is your fuel not your comforter.
  • You don't need a lot to curve a craving.
  • Food is not in control. You are in control.
  • More veggies! 
  • I'm creating a lifelong lifestyle not a quick fix
