Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
If I counted right, I did not overdo it. My tracker says I stayed within my calorie range. However, I ate before 1pm and it's nearly 7pm and I'm not hungry. That never happens to me. It makes me suspect I ate more than I tracked. But it could be because I ate much more fat than usual. I often don't meet my minimum fat target, but today I was over. I did not measure, but tried to objectively judge. Oh, well, I had a lucious dinner and believe I have satisfied all my cravings for the foreseeable future. At least, I hope it works that way.
I had yummy turkey with just a touch of gravy and two bites of dressing. I had a plain baked sweet potato that just tasted heavenly. I had a very reasonable portion of the traditional green bean casserole, which I really enjoy once a year. I ate less than half of a homemade dinner role, and it seemed just right. I didn't worry about my caffeine today and enjoyed 4 cups of good strong coffee along with about 4 big glasses of water. I was thirsty, but I had spent 45 minutes on the treadmill. It was about 80 degrees and beautifully warm today. Then I indulged in a delicious piece of caramel apple pie. It was worth every calorie and I counted it as 527 calories. All in all, I feel good about what I ate this Thanksgiving, even if I was over in fat and sodium and under in calcium. Tomorrow I will hit the gym for a longer workout and meet more of my nutritional goals. Once a year it is good to celebrate our blessings and abundance!
