My husband and I have just moved into our home last month and took on the challenge of hosting our first Thanksgiving for the family. We worked up until the first guest arrived yesterday at 1pm trying to get our house ready for 18 people and 2 dogs :)
Well, we were able to get the boxes unpacked (except for a few that we hid in the basement) and everything went great... including my ability to not gorge myself with the traditional holiday spread. While I didn't avoid any of my favorites... I just limited myself to small portions of everything I love. And I loaded up on all the veggies I could!
I'm thrilled that I didn't derail my early successes. Here's to all the food I love - in moderation :)
