If you're feeling like you overdid it even a little at Thanksgiving, whether you ate on-plan or off, this meal plan could help! You can scroll down to the bottom to grab your free printable version!
It's so, SO important to get right back to it if you eat off-plan. As a Certified THM Lifestyle Coach, I work with women on a daily basis who need a little help after they've fallen off the wagon, so to speak. And one of the first things I tell them is that it's so important not to keep going in the wrong direction if you go off-plan – you need to get yourself right back to it, 100%, to continue making progress! (P.S. – I highly recommend re-reading chapter 16 in the Trim Healthy Mama Plan book to help you stick with THM through the holiday season!)
Just imagine how you could feel January 1 if you spend the next few months getting closer to reaching your goals, instead of getting further away! Getting back on-plan now can make all the difference in starting the New Year strong!
I put together some simple meals using leftover turkey. The first two days of this meal plan are Deep S or Light S to help you get over the cravings that can be caused by too many off-plan foods or sugar, and then we'll have a super yummy E on day 3. You can start this meal plan ANY time, but I'm jumping in tomorrow!
