Hey folks, you guys have asked some great questions recently, and I’ll be getting to those in the immediate future.  Today however, I’d like to wish each of you a happy Thanksgiving.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, check out this picture.

Thanksgiving dinnerNotice what appears to be the non-whole wheat bread…the mashed potatoes, which probably contain generous helpings of butter…the gravy, the sweet potato pie…etc., etc.  This is the type of meal my mother (who we will visit) fixes for Thanksgiving dinner…as well as Christmas…and New Years…and, well, almost every time the family gets together at her house.  It’s not exactly the kind of meal that leads to six pack abs.

But, what do ya do?  Be the only family member over in the corner eating a slice of turkey and some broccoli?  Or do you join in with the rest of the family and dig in?  Hey, may as well splurge.  It’s just for a day.  So enjoy, and be ready to jump back into the exercise and regular eating habits with extra vigor once the big day is over.

Eat well, enjoy, and have a great one!

  1. There is definately nothing wrong with splurging for one day.

    If your Mom cooks like mine..and I know she does… it will all be good.
    My problem is I’ve been on a splurge for about 3 months now. Got to get back in the groove.

  3. I enjoy these types of splurges! Roasted anything with gravy and potatoes makes my mouth water. I love these types of meals, but yes, after the splurge it is back to business!

  4. I wholeheartedly agree with you Darryl, Thanksgiving is a time to be with family and friends and not to worry about being so disciplined. One day a year, or even a week to enjoy what life has to offer is usually a good thing.

    Hi Darryl

    Given that the mind and body are inextricably linked, I think that the benefits of good company, good cheer and a day’s indulgence for all your senses, far outweigh a few extra calories and saturated fats!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  6. Hi Darryl,

    Happy Thanksgiving

    Our generation added a green vegetable to special holiday meals. And we eat a nibble of each pie. It’s not the 1 Day that’s ever the issue, it’s that so many of us do 6 wks of that sort of stuff with the holiday.


    Happy Dating and Relationships,

    Thnaksgiving is a big thing in the States but not so in Australia.

    Hardly got mentioned except when it’s referred to the America.

    But the need for exercise & it benefits is universal.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you & your fmaily!

  8. Great advice Darryl; people need to find an exercise and eating regime that works for life and constantly denying yourself festive meals is a recipe for disaster.

    Your site is looking great too!
