Julie 101: Blogging, cooking, servicing, healthifying, growing, financializing, organizing, designing, exploring, primping and playing!
Tonight I found this article on Philly.com : Follow this 11-step program to keep the Thanksgiving banquet off your butt.
The list in short:
1 Start strong. (They’re saying go to the gym, which is the plan!)
2 Dress up. (If you wear something fitted, you’ll feel full sooner)
3 Fuel up early. (Don’t skip breakfast or lunch, otherwise you’ll binge later!)
4 Think small. (Keep your portions small)
5 Pad with produce. (Fruits and veggies will fill you up faster!)
6 Save up for the good stuff. (Save your calories for specialties like pumpkin pie)
7 Take it slow. (Don’t wolf down your food, since your body won’t register fullness for 20 minutes)
8 Beware of beverages. (Well that’s just not gonna happen)
9 But do stay hydrated. (Standard for me!)
10 Get physical. “After your meal, go for a brisk 30-minute walk. The cool air and physical activity will refresh you.” (Too cold, can’t move, F that)
11 Focus on family. (Duh!)
