Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite days of the year! I am so thankful that for the fourth (or fifth?) year in a row, I am able to wake up early and celebrate first with my FiA sisters. I am so thankful for each of you!
We warmed up with some stretches and Would You Rather – Thanksgiving edition, of course. Then we went on an Indian run. As we sprinted forward, we named something we are thankful for. Then we got to work on our Kraken style beatdown. We set up over by the snack shack, under the lights. We had 10 stations set up. Everyone picked a station, completed the exercise, then ran a full lap around the circle and stopped at the next station.
These were our stations:
Watching the Macy’s Day Parade – hold chair for 30 seconds
Put the turkey in the oven – 30 bicep curls
Time to mash the potatoes – do 50 calf raises
Get cornered by Grandpa – do 30 prisoner squats
A child is crying. Break up the cousin quarrel. Do 10 180 jumps.
Difficult moment with your mother in law. Do 5 burpees.
The kids ask if they can eat chicken nuggets instead. Do 30 chicken wings.
You burned the rolls! Walk away slowly. Walking lunges around the circle.
Praise God it is time to eat! Do 40 Hallelujahs.
Pumpkin pie time! Do 10 star jumps.
With 7-8 minutes left, we switched to abs:
10 American pie sit ups
20 Leg Lifts
30 Russian Twists
10 Reverse Crunches
We ended with our COT, prayers for patience and gratitude and peace. Then we enjoyed coffeteria. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
