Thank you all for supporting me when I was down and frustrated by Thanksgiving. I got out of the holiday without gaining a pound, I managed to enjoy pecan pie, the only pie worth consuming:-). I worked out Wednesday with my trainer pretty hard, I got a free session BTW so I have one more left tomorrow. I started off Thursday with a run. Mike insisted on taking something to my parents so I suggested a nice green salad since we still have lettuce and tomatoes going in our garden (mini greenhouse). I filled my plate pretty full with that and a little bit of turkey to start, then I ate peas and a little bit of stuffing and a little bit of mashed potatoes and a little bit of corn casserole. I emphasize a little bit because I took nice tiny sample size portions. I had a half slice of pumpkin creme pie, since my Grandma wanted a small slice I had the other half. Then we enjoyed social time and it was off to Mike's family Thanksgiving. I started this one by playing tag with Mike's nephew, burned a few calories while we waited for things to finish, I made the mashed potatoes which are my favorite, but that way too I could control how much badness went into them. I had another very moderate plate of food and enjoyed a small slice of pecan pie. I made it through the day didn't feel like it was a total victory but it was minimal damage.
Friday morning Mike and I hit the gym and worked out together burning a decent amount of calories doing intervals on the treadmill and following it up with a swim. We ate healthy light meals of soups etc. and put up Christmas stuff. Now I just got to get through Christmas and New Year's and hopefully do so losing some weight.
Smart phones, just a side bar, are fantastic mine is really helping me lose weight, I use it to log food. It has a kindle reader so I have a couple fitness books right on it that I can reference. Totally random but this thing has been a big help, cause I log my food right when I eat it, not later, which really helps me decide if I am going to eat something or not.
