Piggy Day

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Today was like a practice for Thanksgiving.

I ate too much.

I worked out for 22 minutes, but it wasn't terribly strenuous.

I also did practice my Zaatar bread recipe. I didn't mean for it to be practice, but since it turned out disastrous, I am going to start over tomorrow. The bread will be better fresh anyway.

I walked during my lunch.

But I still ate too much.

Tomorrow, we're going to have steak instead of turkey. A couple years ago, our exchange student from Germany was allergic to poultry, so we made steak instead. It was FANTASTIC. We had no idea what to do with all the extra time we had on Thanksgiving Day without having to baste anything. Steak tastes better, and takes about 8 hours less time to cook. After that, we started doing it every year.

We'll also have the Zaatar bread, salad, green bean casserole (which isn't that bad...I put it in the SparkRecipes and was surprised by how few calories it was), mac and cheese, which is that bad, but also delicious, stuffing (which I won't eat), and pumpkin pie. Small pieces. =)

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

    I'm sorry your bread was a disaster! I'm sure it'll go better tomorrow. I think steak for Thanksgiving sounds like a splendid idea! I did it for Christmas last year, it was super tasty.

my sister lost 105 pounds walking 15000 steps a day at age 63.

i lost 44 pounds by giving up grain and sugar products at age 60.

i use a salad plate as a dinner plate.

i use a childs for and spoon so i eat slower. it takes your brain 20 minutes to tell your stomach your full.
