Tips for Staying Active on Thanksgiving

Push, Lift, Walk.  Push, Lift, Walk.  Those are the latest tips we've found online for keeping active and healthy this Thanksgiving. The Bad: Studies show that if you count all the snacking, the feast, the desserts, the seconds (the thirds?), you may be looking at taking in 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day. That’s at least twice as much as an average sized, active adult needs. Just the Thanksgiving dinner alone generally weighs in at 3,000 calories - source The Good: An indulgence like a Thanksgiving meal is OK for most diets and health plans.  With the "Push, Lift, Walk" method, it may be even easier to feel less guilty about indulging.

Push yourself away from the table.

Lift plenty of glasses of water all day.

Walk it off when all is said and done.

While it may be pushing boundaries of dietary sanity, Thanksgiving is still one of the greatest days of the year because of all the THANKS that will be given.  Be sure to enjoy time with family, the grandkids, and the warmth of a great meal - whether we have to cook it, or not. From the Cornerstone Homes family to yours, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
