Thanksgiving, and the beginning of the holiday season is a week away. For many, the holidays are an opportunity to spend time with loved ones, and eat some delicious food. Let’s all agree to do our best to keep the crazy to a minimum when it comes to what we’re eating during the holidays. Please don’t bargain with yourself and rationalize pumpkin pie, candied vegetables, and canned cranberry sauce as good choices. This is a time of year to be enjoyed. Eat what looks tasty, move on, and resolve to make better decisions with your next meal.
Working out is a great way to help reduce any added holiday stress, but don’t worry if you can’t make it into CrossFit Fenway. There’s lots of great body weight movements that require no equipment like push-ups, sit-ups, air squats, burpees, and running, to name a few (if any of those movements make you cringe, do more of them). Get creative with your personal programming. Supplement the basics by picking up heavy things, and jumping on or over tall things.
Have fun this holiday season, and maybe you can even spread the joy of CrossFit to friends and family.
