It is Thanksgiving Day here in the United States
The day where we give thanks
In no particular order, I am thankful for:
- my family
- my health
- my running legs
- my iPod
- The Sisterhood
What will I be doing today to keep the damage to my waistline at a minimum?!
- EXERCISE! Specifically, a RUN with my husband. We are going to take advantage of having a houseful of people visiting and will remove ourselves for one hour in the morning to go for a walk, run, jog, trot, gallop, whatever- as long as we are moving!
- HYDRATE! As I do every day, I will guzzle the water and keep my body hydrated all day long. I regularly drink 80-100 oz of WATER a day. Today should be no different.
- PORTION CONTROL! Really, do I need seconds and thirds of any one thing at the Thanksgiving table? NOOOOOO. It’s all about pacing myself, kind of like running a half marathon : ).
- VEGGIES! I will have a salad on my table and I will load up on it because, I can only have so many carbs before my body revolts. I need some of the good stuff too. I wonder if I can get one of the 20 guests coming to house to bring a veggie tray?!
- MORE MOVEMENT! This year, after the food onslaught is done with, I am going to resist sitting down and taking a nap. Oh no, I am going to get moving AGAIN. Nothing serious, maybe a walk or playing hide n seek with the kids, just anything that keeps me up and moving.
What about you guys? What are you thankful for? How will you keep yourself in line this Thanksgiving holiday?
Enjoy the day, be safe if you are traveling this holiday weekend, and we’ll *see* on Friday!

I’m a runner, on my way to becoming a marathoner. I am 42 years old and have found a peaceful acceptance of my body. Through running, I have discovered who I am, besides a mom to three kids and a wife to one. I truly enjoy sharing my love of fitness with others while empowering and motivating women to conquer their fear of the unknown. In my spare time, I manage the Run with the Sisterhood Facebook page, work here and there for Zooma Women’s Race Series, and work part-time at our local YMCA.
