I did something today I haven't done in a long time--I read a book cover to cover. The band arrived early (@8:30am). They had driven all night and were exhausted, so they went directly to bed and basically slept or relaxed in their rooms all day. Meanwhile, I still had my daycare kids. They were good and played quietly in the morning. But during naptime, since the bedrooms were occupied and I couldn't use my bedroom since my husband was home sick, I had to put up two playpens in the playroom and two slept on the couch in the living room. The kitchen was in between the two rooms, so I couldn't work in there. The treadmill is the basement were one of the band members was sleeping. I couldn't sew because the sewing room is in the open loft right above two of the kids sleeping. So, I read. It was nice. I read The Black Stallion Revolts. I have been reading through The Black Stallion series by Walter Farley. I know it is an old children's series from the 1950's. But I like those old children series -- they're clean and fun and have good story lines.
I put the turkey in the oven at 1:00, then started preparing the rest of the meal @5:00. When the last of the daycare kids left at 6:45, I cut the turkey and we sat down for our second Thanksgiving dinner. The band was very appreciative. One member said this was his first Thanksgiving away from his family and it meant alot to him.
I knew I wouldn't be able to walk on the treadmill this afternoon or get to the gym tonight, so I walked on it for @15 min this morning before the kids came. So, I did get some exercise in today to get the LTGL points for my 5% team -The Cloverleafs.
Unfortunately, I did go over my calorie count today. I am going to be extra vigilant the next couple of days both eating and exercise to make up for today and prepare for Thanksgiving Day.
I had a loss after the first dinner, so I am going to work hard to keep it off and maybe even lose some more!
