Happy Thanksgiving…Grateful…Recipes…& more!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
I absolutely LOVE the Thanksgiving holiday.  It’s a time where family gets together, reflects on what they are thankful for, cooks amazing food, exercises & enjoys being together.

It’s so important to be THANKFUL for everything that surrounds you on this day.   Your family, good energy, CLEAN food, friends, laughs, sunshine, running partners, love, football, fun & the quality of your day.  So many people always want what they don’t have.  Take a look around you and be THANKFUL for what you already have. (this paragraph I wrote in my 2012 Thanksgiving blog but I thought it was so inspiring I would write it again)

I have so much to be thankful for this year.  Our daughter Charly is beyond a blessing.  Her arrival has brought so much joy, unconditional love & of course sleepless nights 🙂  We love her so much and are beyond grateful and blessed to be parents.

Now for the food!
If you haven’t followed my blog you don’t know about the amazing squash side dishes, sweet potato mash, cranberry sauce, paleo pumpkin pie & roasted turkey.

Here are a few of my favorites:
Roasted Acorn Mash
Roasted Turkey
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Paleo Cranberry Sauce
Paleo Pumpkin Pie

Amy’s tip of the day:
*EXERCISE – wake up before everyone else & MOVE MOVE MOVE!
*Eat a plate of food (yes whatever you want) but DON’T go for seconds…
*Eat a piece of pie but cut it in half…
*If you are going to drink like a fish…Eat like a bird!

Are you ready for the holiday season? Don’t wait until January 2nd to get fit – I CHALLENGE you to be more fit BEFORE the holidays than after. Lose those 2 pounds NOW, cut out dairy NOW, skip dessert NOW, do the last 3 reps NOW. Start TODAY!

ENJOY your Thanksgiving holiday!!
