Thanksgiving advice from Dyer

Thanksgiving is here, and I want to make sure nobody falls off into the abyss after this holiday. I basically have three things to say about tonight through Monday morning (this is just my personal philosophy):
1. Enjoy yourself and be mindful.I personally believe that the mental break from worrying about what you're eating will pay dividends in helping you get back at it when you return. But, for this to work, you've got to A) make an unbreakable deal with yourself that you're going to get back to eating healthy and training hard after the holiday, and B) really pay attention to what you're eating and enjoy it so that you can recall the five pieces of pumpkin pie and all the other stuff you enjoyed if you feel deprived next week.
2. Do two (short) workouts between Thursday morning and Sunday night. Getting the blood flowing on Thursday morning before eating that big meal will help you enjoy it more, especially now that you're (hopefully) conditioned to exercising regularly. Make it something you enjoy that we don't normally do in the gym like going for run with a family member, a bike ride, or playing a sport OR try any number of travel workouts that are super easy and fast. Some examples: 10 rounds of 10 situps and 10 pushups for time; 100 burpees for time; run for 20 minutes and stop each minute to do 10 pushups or squats; 100 squats, 100 situps, 100 pushups for time; do lunges for 10 minutes straight and see how many you can get; etc. Finally, if you're in town, the gym will be open on Friday and Saturday - you can always get in there to make up something you missed or do a programmed workout of the day. This will help you enjoy your holiday and hit the ground running on Monday. Regardless, do two and you'll feel a lot better over the holiday and next week.
3. Get to the gym next week. Whatever day is your normal first workout day of the week that you are in town for, promise yourself that you'll be back in the gym for that workout and don't break that promise. It's way too easy to let a four-day slide turn into a four-week or four-month issue if you don't get back in there. If you get to the gym for that one workout, the odds of hitting a long decline during December will go way down.
That's it. I hope you guys have a great holiday. I'm looking forward to stuffing my face with a shocking amount of turkey and mashed potatoes and then crushing some training with my brother and friends.

Wednesday yoga is cancelled for the holidays!

We're cancelling the Wednesday yoga class starting this week. We'll be revamping the yoga schedule (and CF classes too!) in early 2013.

Thanksgiving schedule

Wed: regular classes
Thurs: closed
Fri: Open Gym 10a-12n & 4-6p
Sat: Open Gym 10a-12n
Open gym sessions will be supervised by a coach, but will not have formal group warm-ups. A coach will be on hand to answer questions, review movements and technique. You'll have a choice of doing skill work, a programmed workout and/or doing a workout from recent weeks.

Happy Thanksgiving, CFMers! This year I am so thankful for the community we've built and the memories we've made. We hope you all have an amazing weekend with loved ones and lots of delicious food! What are you thankful for this year?
