Today's Challenge/ Topic is:
lets challenge you to stay healthy this Thanksgiving
Only eating a reasonable amount
  and getting plenty of exercise to make up for those extra calories
Let us know your techniques on portion control
and how you felt this week

Let me start out by saying I didn't do horrible on thanksgiving 
I did pretty good BUT the next three days after thanksgiving 
were not the best I am not so proud of those days
It makes me nervous for Christmas week
We had family in town from a couple hours away
it was a lot of fun 
a lot of time was spent visiting, playing games which brought on the snacking 
Then we went to a movie, ate lots of popcorn with extra butter on the top
and I went to a family members mission homecoming and
hate way to many desserts  
I had no control from Thur-Sun
I really wanted to do better this week but I kinda forgot it was thanksgiving
I would love to hear your tips and tricks 
on staying healthy during the
holiday season with all this delish food surrounding us
Please and thank you!

Here are a few tips I found on portion control
This is more up my alley for during the holidays or anytime really
I love food
It is much more attainable for me to just have good portions of food
rather than cut them out completely

 Just keep them in mind
Portion control can make a huge difference 
Especially when there is are feats 
during the holiday season
Have hat yummy food
But just have a little 
This WEEK:
Again not the best week in the world
But not horrible I was still able to squeeze in 4 workouts 
during the week
even with all the family stuff going on 
which I am pretty proud of since 
I really would have rather just spent more time 
hanging out haha
Monday: Run 4 miles, Legs, abs
Tuesday: Run 4 miles, Arms, abs
Wednesday: Run 4 miles, Legs, abs, arms
Friday: Run 4 miles , stretch 
I upped my millage to 4 
and on Wednesday and  Friday I got up to running my 4 miles 
at 7.0 speed the whole time 
I got to 34 min and 28 seconds 

My Goals This Next Week:
1. Work out at 4-5 days this week
2. Run 4 miles at 7.0 speed at least once this week
3. Stretch before and after every workout
4. Drink 8 cups of water a day 
5. Eat more fruits and Veggies
