Please do not be That Girl who eats everything on her Thanksgiving plate and later laments, “Why did I eat all that?”
Please do not be That Girl who lists every thing she ate on Thanksgiving to her closest friends and 500 social media friends.
Please do not be That Girl who leaves the Thanksgiving table bitter because she denied herself a slice of homemade apple pie.
Please do not be That Girl who lets everyone know she went to the gym for two hours on Thanksgiving morning and two hours on Black Friday.
Be The Girl who unapologetically eats what she wants on Thanksgiving.
If you are That Girl, or you know That Girl…
There is a lot of emphasis on one day of eating. The news features a segment on the traditional, Thanksgiving meal’s calorie count. Fitness and food magazines explore healthier options. On the other side of the wishing bone, we are showered with Pinterest delicacies, and our family traditions run deep in our aunt’s mashed potatoes.
Forget about the holiday mind games. Think about your life. Think about the choices you make every day. The only healthy choice that matters is the one you will not beat yourself up about later.
You want to skip the gym and watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade (with a hot cup of coffee)? Fantastic! You want a slice of apple pie? Savor it! You want roasted veggies instead of the traditional green bean casserole? Great! You want to take an After The Bird class on Black Friday? Bring it!
Do not let one day derail or justify your habits. Look at your every day life. Think about what you consistently do, or not do. Be woman enough to recognize it and own it. Please do not bring That Girl to any more holiday feasts. You are too Fabulous and Fit for That Girl.
