Yes, my American friends, Turkey Day is here. Well, it will be tomorrow
The holiday season has officially arrived, complete with decorations, party planning, and tons of caloric food goodness.
A little stop by MizFit’s gave me a sobering reality check about this happy time.
Did you know that the average Thanksgiving meal contains between 3000-7000 calories? I didn’t.
Did you know that, on average, we consume an extra 619 calories per day between Thanksgiving and New Years? I definitely did not know that. Goodness.
That is 33 days of an additional 619 calories. That is 20,427 extra calories going into the body by New Years Day. Hello 5-6 pound holiday weight gain. Depressing.
Say no to extra stuffing. Say no to extra turkey. Say no to extra pie… Maybe if I keep saying it I will do it. Or at least think seriously about it before eating more turkey and stuffing and all other goodies on those 29 non holidays.
Doubt that will happen as we have 4 turkeys (people kept giving us turkeys this year) and 1 ham and a host of other dishes. I plan on watching a parade, some football, and totally eating whatever the heck I want. I am not going to stuff myself every day from now til New Years, but I am going to enjoy tomorrow.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday… it is a good one since we all have a lot to be thankful for. :)
