Turkey Day Detox: Day 1- Workout (beginner to advanced)

Turkey Day Detox: Day 1- Workout (beginner to advanced)

So you’ve just stuffed yourself silly last week. As you should. But now it’s time to get back on track for Holiday parties (!!!!) 

Okay, so I know not everyone has access to a gym and even if you do- sometimes its just easier to workout at home. I am going to give some tips for all fitness levels. 

For the beginner:

Do this once in the morning and once at night

Here are some additional tips-

  • Park farther away from store entrances, work etc. to get a walk in (even 5 min helps)
  • If you feel hungry for a snack drink 2 full glasses of water or tea first. Then if you are still hungry eat a small snack. Hunger is sometimes a trigger for thirst. 
  • Get up to talk to someone at work vs an email or phone call – when possible
  • Eat your veggies/salad first before your other foods. Fill up on what is good for you and less of what isn’t 
Intermediate:
Do 2 times at night. 
Here is an example of a bridge
Here is an example of a Superman
If there are any others you aren’t sure of- just search for the on Youtube. 
Additional Tips- 
  • Drink 1-2 cups of coffee then switch to tea or water. Drink about 6-8 glasses throughout the day. 
  • Keep you abs tight during all workouts
  • NO refined carbs (sugars, processed foods, white bread) after 6pm
Advanced:
Warning- you will be sore! Do this once a day 
Additional Tips-
  • Eat healthy carbs at breakfast (oatmeal, wheat toast, etc) to jump start the metabolism 
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Get at least 7 hours of sleep
  • Don’t eat past 7pm
I also have a fitness app I am obsessed, yes literally obsessed with. Nike Training Club
This app is amazing. It has work outs for ALL fitness levels. You can choose to focus on an area (arms, legs, abs etc) or to burn fat, gain muscle…it does it all. This also syncs to your music on your phone. I can’t workout without some tunes! Lastly, if there are moves you need clarification on, you can pause your workout and watch a little example video. It is just the best. I recommend downloading it and taking a look. Lots of hidden features and surprises! 

Brooke is a blogger I just recently met! She is a pro when it comes to workouts- need more inspiration- check out her blog

Good luck out there! 

love, post holidays feeling xo

    Yeah! Great collection – Advanced I could maybe do one round, then follow up with some NTC!

    Those workouts sound good, especially if you did them as many times as possible in 10 minutes or whatever!
    But I do the opposite at breakfast–I drink buttery/MCT oil coffee and that's it, then protein/veg for lunch, then protein/veg for dinner and maybe a little dark chocolate after! When I eat carbs without fat my blood sugar goes up/down like crazy and I get sick and fat from grains! 🙁
