Holiday Hustle: Thanksgiving Workout

Good morning! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. If you missed my last post, check out Sunshine in My Fridays for a fun survey and another Friday Food Finds!

I don’t have time today for a very long post, but I did want to share this new workout I created for the upcoming holiday season. As you may or may not know, I very much dislike exercising. To encourage me to get in exercise, I made this fun little workout. It involves TURKEYS of course for Thanksgiving and shakes things up a bit and comes at a perfect time because today is October 22 which means we are exactly one month away from Thanksgiving!

You can incorporate this workout however you want into your daily routine. My plan is to do this once a day, increasing my time intervals slowly- Don’t want to get worn out too quickly! This would be a great addition to your morning routine as well as a fun stop in between your miles of biking or running. I did the 30 second intervals just to test it out and my heart already started pumping at the end of four minutes!! And for those of you in college… this is super simple to do in your dorm room! You don’t need a weights and there isn’t much space required.

Each move is pretty self-explanatory and is open for any interpretation that you see fit. If you have any questions, let me know in the comments. I hope you enjoy it!

*Note: I am not a licensed or certified trainer. This workout is just for fun and I am in no way telling you what is right for you.

  1. this is hilarious! i love this.

  2. This is so awesome! 🙂 cutest graphics ever. I love workouts like this because I’m a uni student with no room too! Haha. Also, to answer your last question on my comment from Friday, I am definitely a fantasy/mystery girl when it comes to books. I do love me a bit of sappy teen romance though 🙂

    • Exactly! I personally don’t feel comfortable going to the gym by myself… So any workouts that I can do in my room without injuring myself are perfect! 🙂

      Me too. I love fantasy and mystery with a little romance- Not too much though. I dislike swooning and googly eyes. Haha.

  5. I love that workout! That is seriously too cute and creative. Although I must admit, I’m not a turkey fan at all…in fact wild turkeys freak me out! 😉

    • Ya. I remember the first fall when my family had moved into our new house… I was in kindergarten and just sitting at the kitchen table looking out the back doors into our woods. Then all of a sudden a wild turkey appeared and just walked by. I was like, “Mom!! What is that?” I had never seen a wild turkey before 🙂 And in the 13 years that we have lived there I have never seen one since. Haha.

      I hope you like the workout!

  6. What an awesome workout, Madison! I love the fun thrown into it — that’s what makes a workout that much better: when it doesn’t even seem like one. 🙂

  7. What a fun workout. I love te quick little exercise plans on Pinterest. They certainly don’t cover everything, but they don’t hurt either.

    I’m going to see if the boyfriend wants to go on a turkey trot on the morning of Thanksgiving while we’re in his home town. I have never done one and I will need to get a 3 mile run that day anyway. It’s better if it’s a race 😀

    • They have those up near the family that we visit for Thanksgiving. One year I asked my dad why we never did it. He replied that he’d rather sleep in and eat pancakes…. ?! Yep. That’s my family for ya. Granted, I asked it sarcastically. I didn’t want to do it either. But, I think it sounds like a whole lot of fun (not sarcastic) and can’t wait to see how it turns out!
