As I was reading someone's blog for her short term goal, I decided to make one too for myself. So here it is.
1. Keep doing the trail for four days a week
2. Get back on tracking your foods (to be honest, I haven't been doing it for a month now)
3. Keep your eye on the prize ( the prize is to lose 10 pounds by your anniversary diet year January 26) Even though I didn't join Sparkpeople until April 2010, I started in January.
Ok, now that this is here for everyone to see, I am now committed.

A day after Thanksgiving, we didn't do much. My husband worked that night. I did a little black Friday thing, but not to the extreme. I only went to our local CVS, Walgreen's and Rite-aid. Got a few bargains and came home an hour later. We did have a little scare, thanks to my husband. He was having some serious pain and I went with him to the ER. I had to make some jokes that instead of him being the nurse, he is the patient. He wasn't bad as a patient. Last night, we had dinner with my mom. Mom and I haven't been the closest in a long time and I had to give her another chance to make up what she did almost a year ago. To tell you the details would take too long. We tried to be as civil as possible. I showed her videos of my son's marching band performance and pictures of the renewal. One hour later, dinner was wrapping up in the restaurant and it was time to say our goodbyes. I can see the door from where we are at. Just when I thought I was cleared to depart, she opens up what happened a year ago. She wants me to forget what she did. I can't do that. She is not apologizing, but she wants it erased like it didn't happen. I took the kids with me and left my husband alone. I was waiting for him to get out of that restaurant. She wanted to make a scene in a public area. I chose not to allow it. I may sound mean, but it is so clear still in my mind of her antics last year, that I am still upset about it. Ok, now that I vented, everyone have a wonderful week.

My Thanksgiving started very early today since our high school had a Thanksgiving game and with that, second son had to wake up early for his last performance in the marching band. I am surprised that I didn't blubber like a baby. As for our dinner, I ate my serving of turkey, pies, mashed potatoes, some cranberry salad and a biscuit. I've got the "itis." Anyways, this is the reason I go to every competition, and every game. Never missed one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVjLQuU-V94 Enjoy.

I bought the turkey today and luckily got everything else I needed. I just want to leave this with you when things may go wrong. I got this from a newsletter I got today.
