It's almost Thanksgiving and that means a little preemptive pound prevention might not be such a bad idea. After all, you can't eat turkey sandwiches and left-over casserole for a week and not gain any weight. Likewise, you can't suck down an entire can of cranberry sauce and not have to deal with some residual sugar issues. And forget trying to fit into your favorite tight pair of jeans after you finish off the last scrumptious, diet-taunting slices of Ma-Mah's pumpkin pie. This is why people wear sweats in the winter--it's not the cold, it's the friggin' holiday vittles. This year, be proactive for a change (and charitable at the same time). How about a 5K the weekend before Turkey Day? (You could try one the weekend after, but we're sympathy pukers, so dont expect us to come cheer for you or anything.) Richardson's 2nd annual Gobble Hobble takes place 8:30 a.m. (registration and packet pick-up begins at 7 a.m.) Saturday at Galatyn Park, 2351 Performance Drive. Visit centralhealthandwellness.com.
