How I kicked Thanksgiving in the bootay.

I've had a few friends --school, IRL, and some of y'all-- ask me how I did it.

"How did you lose weight on one of the biggest food holidays of the year?"

Plain and simple with no fireworks, I had to plan for it.

I planned for it in three ways:

1. Portion Control

I am on Weight Watchers. So I know every week I have 49 "flex points" for days I go over my allotted point amount.I planned for Thanksgiving to be my one day to use those points. I promised myself that I would not use those points any other day of the week.

Then on Thanksgiving, I had everything I normally would have, but I had it in small portions. I still had a very full plate, but the size of the sections were no bigger than the size of my fist...with the exception of my piece of pie.

ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNND I DID NOT GO BACK FOR SECONDS.

2. Exercise

I ran a 5K on Turkey Day. I know not everyone has the luxury or has trained to do the same, but going for a good 30 minute walk afterwards would have worked too. So I had a full tummy and I had exercise so I still was ready for a decent nap!

 
3. Lots of Water

Finally, I drank lots and lots of water. I drink more water on days that I run anyway, but I tried to up my water even more so on this day so I could help move this food through my system as soon as possible.

Hope this answers your questions!

Happy Friday!

You knocked it out girl!!

I weighed yesterday and pleasantly surprised to see I had lost just over half a pound. Nothing huge, but considering I didn't count points the entire 4 day weekend, I call that a win!!
