It's almost Thanksgiving, so you're probably already thinking about your favorite holiday dishes, like grandma’s garlic mashed potatoes and mom’s perfect pumpkin pie. And, like a lot of us, you're probably planning to splurge a little (or a lot) at Thanksgiving dinner. This delicious food-fest only comes once a year, so there's nothing wrong with enjoying yourself a little. But, of course, you don't want to overdo it either, so if you're planning a splurge, you might want to commit to burning off some of the extra calories by breaking a sweat first thing on Thanksgiving morning.
