Pre-Feast Thanksgiving Challenge Workout

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you’re spending the day surrounded by good food, loved ones, and lots and lots of gratitude.

I’m doing something a little different than normal this Thanksgiving—instead of flying north to my rainy hometown, my husband and I decided to seek out sunshine and spend the holiday in Mexico—hence the photo above.

So, as much as I miss my family today, I’m also grateful for sunshine, guacamole, and cold buckets of beer.

But however you’re spending your Thanksgiving, make sure and take the time to work out before all the fun starts today. Not only will a tough workout help negate some of the calories you’ll no doubt be eating later in the day, it’ll also help rev up your metabolism early so you’ll burn more throughout the day—even if you’re just sitting around watching football all day long.

Be thankful you can work out, and go work up a good sweat. Then go enjoy yourself—you deserve it.

Here’s your pre-feast Thanksgiving workout:


Workout equipment:

Workout type: Challenge

Timer setting: Stopwatch

Repeat 10x:

10 Burpees
10 Sit ups

(Yep! That’s 100 burpees… you can do it!)

  1. I did it in 12 minutes but I was amazed that I did it at all so there! It wasn’t as hard as I thought and I think next time I can get my time down.

    • Yeah Jeanne! I’m proud of you 🙂 I agree, the idea of 100 burpees can be really intimidating, but it’s actually not that bad when you suck it up and do it. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
