Alright everyone, another one of the nation’s biggest days of eating is officially over.  How’d you do?  On top of enjoying time with your loved ones, were you one of the many who pigged out on delicious family recipes?  It’s ok if you were, I know I did :-)  In fact, according to some stats from About.com, “On average, each American consumed a yearly amount of 13.3 pounds of turkey in 2009.  This is spread out over the entire year, so not all 13.3 pounds was eaten at Thanksgiving.  However, a sizable portion would be.”  Whether or not that number went up or not in recent years has yet to be revealed, but I’d imagine it’s about the same.

The beauty of all of this is that Thanksgiving was last week!  You have today, and everyday ahead of you, to renew your vows to fitness and get back on the horse.

Ride on!


You have to treat getting back into your workout routine just like you’d treat any interaction with that horse:

  • Saddle up: Prepare for your return to your workouts in the same way that you’d prepare for anything else.  Make sure that you have the equipment you need and that you’re getting back into the mindset of designating time to your workout goals.
  • Mount up: There are no shortcuts – the only way to get where you’re trying to go is to mount up first.  That said, go ahead and start working out already!  If thoughts created results, I wouldn’t even be writing this post right now :-D
  • Ride, but don’t exhaust, the horse: Once you mount – keep up “the ride” at a pace that’s good for you.  Don’t overdue it because you’re trying to comeback strong.  “If you exhaust the horse” – you won’t get much of anywhere.
  • Feed & care for your animal: Lastly just make sure you’re maintaining things that you need to take care of.  Mimic the same way you’d feed and care for your animal i how you treat your workout necessities (nutrition & such).

This week has had a special focus on workout motivation: we talked about getting back into the groove of things and making yourself comfortable for morning workouts (if you’re uncomfortable – you won’t be motivated to do anything).  So I thought it would be good to wrap the week with a video, on the subject of workout motivation, from the good people of Howcast.com…
