SO, I am very curious.... What is your plan on Thanksgiving?
Free for all?
Lighten up traditional meals?
Walking it off?
I will tell you my plan...
I have lightened up some appetizers (baked chips with fat free sour cream dip, bacon wrapped shrimp, stuffed mushrooms) and have the traditional turkey meal with mashed potatoes ( low fat milk) green beans with almonds (not cream of mushroom soup),wild rice stuffing, gravy that I will make myself skimming off the fat first, low fat corn bread and regular biscuits for options, fresh cranberrie sauce (not canned) and my sister is making mini pies for portion contol.
Now that sounds like I have it all together right? Where could I possibly go wrong?
Eating TOO MUCH of even the "GOOD" food.
Alcohol (specifically champagne) that makes me say, Screw it! It's only ONE DAY!
Not going for a walk.
Being stressed and not taking the time to enjoy the day and the family
SO, we are bringing back poker (we always used to play but havent for a few years) so I will be busy, enjoying people and not just eating, eating, eating.
Tell me your plan then lets talk again friday and compare notes.
Be good, kids. And from my heart, Happy Thanksgiving. I am proud of us. Look what we have done since last year!
