Thanksgiving Time

Thanksgiving is the start of my favorite time of year, the holiday season. There is something about this time of year that brings out the joy in everyone. For as long as I can remember I have loved getting up on Thanksgiving morning and watching the Macy's parade, smelling all of the wonderful aromas coming from the kitchen. My favorite Thanksgiving foods are deep fried turkey, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie. With all of the delicious food to eat on Thanksgiving, it is important to stay moving!

Many family's enjoy playing a game of football during their day. My parents sign up for a local 5K that benefits those who are less fortunate during the holidays. Kids are even welcome at these races, so it is a great family activity, helping others while keeping your fitness in mind. There are many party games that can be switched up a little to include Thanksgiving elements. "Pin the feather on the turkey" is just one example! The possibilities for fun are endless.

Keep in mind the need for physical activity this holiday season. Many holiday gatherings are centered around food, and that is great! But it is even better to play together as a family, too.

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!
