Happy Thanksgiving!

November 27, 2015 — Derrick Cope

Though the Thanksgiving Holiday is uniquely American, yes I know Canada celebrates as well, the concept behind the holiday is not. As well as the trend toward less exercise and more eating near the end of the year. See pic below.

This Holiday Season let's exercise as much as we eat!

Having enough food to survive the terrible Shanghai winter isn't a big worry for us as long as we can find enough motivation to put down the ipad and make a trip to CarreFour. Nowadays the harvest is always bountiful and if you can't get mangoes in mid- December for your chia seed mango smoothy then you better "give the store manager a piece of your mind"!

Hopefully though, in the midst of so much food, and parades, and sports spectacles, we can all take a moment to think about what really is important, Health, Family, and Friends. Things that can't be bought and you can never have too much of. Let's appreciate what we have, while we have it.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and yours!
See you in class
