Break a sweat before you feast.


If you're at all like me, you're already thinking about grandma's turkey stuffing and mom's perfect pumpkin pie. But before I splurge, I commit to burning off some of those extra calories by breaking a sweat first thing Thanksgiving morning. Here's a quick and effective workout you can do anywhere. It'll start your Thanksgiving off on the right foot so you'll be able to enjoy the holiday!

Perform each exercise and move to the next (without resting for maximum calorie burn), and be sure to work at your own pace. Once you finish all eight exercises, repeat them from the beginning three more times for a total of four rounds. This workout will probably take you about 20 to 25 minutes–so there's still tons of time to get ready to feast.
