….and My Story Runs On….
One of the reasons I run is because I love food! When I run more I get to eat more 😉 Running is a great way to burn calories for weight loss but also for maintenance.
I always tell my clients, especially during days when you know you are going to be eating more than normal, to start their day burning more calories. Join a local Turkey Trot, get out on a nice walk after your Thanksgiving Dinner, google Thanksgiving workouts and complete one.
Apparently I am not the only one who recommends this! Meet Steve Mackel from South Pasadena CA. He is another ChiRunning Master Instructor and I had the pleasure of hanging out with him a few weeks ago at our bi-annual ChiRunning/ChiWalking Instructor weekend. Steve is quite the character (I know anyone who knows him would agree!). He loves beer like me but most importantly he is very passionate about what he does and I’ve had a chance to learn from him and some of his crazy ways.
He just wrote this blog post which made me think of writing one too: Earn Your Bird This Thanksgiving Day and All Week Long. Some other good ideas for you to tackle this weekend!
Get out there and enjoy your Thanksgiving! Get some exercise in every day this weekend and you’ll say bye to more of those calories rather than having them add up to extra pounds!
Post below to keep your accountability!
