I wrote this yesterday, but I couldn't get it to post:
Ok, so we're celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday too (oh great), But we also celebrated tonight. My mom works Thursdays so we usually celebrate on Tuesdays.
I don't like eating on plates that aren't plastic (unless I'm forced to by a restaurant or something). The only plastic plate my mom had was a child's plate, so basically smaller than even a salad plate. This led to me not being fulfilled by what I could fit on there (only about one bite of potatoes, one spoonful of fruit salad, one spoonful of green salad, and about 10 green beans). So then I went back for seconds. And of course, that didn't fill me up either.
I think if I could have just had a normal sized plate I wouldn't have eaten so much! Well besides the deviled eggs and rolls I had on the side, which, whoops my bad. Then there are two kinds of desserts, so I thought that's ok I'll just have a small sliver of both. They happened to be pumpkin pie and cherry cheesecake.
Eating dinner about 3 hours earlier than normal didn't really help either, because then I was hungry again by the time I got home. I was able to have a small 150 calorie snack, but I really don't think that helped things.
Oh and of course today my car decided to be a WORTHLESS hunk of metal and wouldn't start. So I couldn't make it to the gym at all. I walked around the block a bit, but it was freezing! So instead of burning 1000 calories today like usual, I only burned maybe 400. And that's only because my husband and I went to the gym after dinner and hanging out. We couldn't do a whole lot though, because we were full of food!
Added today: So then I had made sure to wake up about an hour and a half earlier than usual to make sure I could start working off that extra weight. But my husband took my keys (which have my only way of getting into my gym on them!) He was trying to be nice (sometimes HE can get my car to work) and let me use the truck. But he has his OWN set of keys to my car, why'd he have to take mine?
