Work off that Thanksgiving Meal

Do you have plans to eat everything in sight on Thanksgiving day? Is the turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie already calling your name? Are you looking forward to a nice long nap on the couch following a delicious and filling meal?

The days and weeks following Thanksgiving is when many people start to regret just how much they ate over the holidays. With football games all Thanksgiving Day, many people sit (or sleep) on the couch for hours instead of working off the large meal they just ate. It's the holidays and we would much rather enjoy visiting with family, lounging around, and watching TV, but staying active is a must to keep your body weight consistent.

Here are some workouts to get a quick sweat in! Stay healthy this holiday season JAGS.
