This is probably the best time of the year for several reasons:
1. We get to see family and friends
2. We get a couple of days off of work to see family and friends
3. We get to eat some of our favorite dishes.
This is also the time of year that we get to add calories. The food is always good, but we can surely pack on the pounds unless we make a determined effort to exercise during these winter months. So how much should we exercise after our Thanksgiving meal? Well, that depends on how much we eat of course!!! For my classes that I teach I found this neat website that will allow you to determine how many walking steps you need to take based on the food you consume over Thanksgiving.
Now be warned......this is based on number of steps you need walk. If you are starting to run your calories burned will be higher so think about that as you take a look at the outcome. Click on Thanksgiving above to access the link.

Just because its fall going into winter, it does not mean we stop training. Speedy Sneakers will still be meeting at Glacier Ridge Metro Park each Saturday at 8:30 a.m.
We meet at the shelter house when you enter in from the north entrance of the park across from Glacier Ridge Elementary.
If you are interested in joining our club, stop by and check us out.
