core-de-force-week-2 Thanksgiving week meal plan
Wow, I have to say that making a meal plan for Thanksgiving week is the hardest meal plan that I’ve done. My main goals this week are to focus on eating vegetables and fruits, choosing whole food side dishes when I can, skip the extra dressings and to enjoy a treat or two and not beat myself up.
How does surviving the holidays with your health intact sound? I’ll be the first one to admit I can’t pass up a good cookie or real butter! But I’ve also learned that it’s ok to have a treat here and there as long as I eat healthy overall. It’s all about balance. This group is about support and encouragement and accountability. We check in daily on things like whether we drank enough water and if we got our workout in. I was traveling for work last week and the ladies in my group encouraged me to stay on track…even in the airport ?I hope you’re interested in joining us.
Don’t forget that Core de Force is ON SALE this month! It’s a great deal, message me for info.
