Did #3, #7, #8, #11,#12 (turkey, turkey & more turkey and sf cranberry sauce) #17 (a trip to D.C.)
#26, #28, #30.

I'm not doing anything for Thanksgiving, as far as I know, so those challenges don't apply.

And now, I'm headed to my cocoon for the night!!

So far as of today I have done #1, #2,#3, #5, #6, #10, #26.

I did #5 on Saturday. I prepared for the return to Standard Time. I staggered my eating the day before and reset the clocks. And I got extra sleep.

I am doing #3 today. I'm staying within my calorie and carb range. Yes, I am doing it!! No excuses!! I will have 1402 calories and 123gms of carbs. I have everything planned and ready.

And also did #6 today. My schedule is penciled in so far as to what I know. I have made a list of things to do and when, like decorating, shopping, going to MIL's house, the Thanksgiving time schedule, Xmas party, etc.

And I did #26 my cardio and strength training. 2.5 hours of cardio and my short program of strength training.

#2. Five things you don't know about me.

1. I love to sew.
2. I love old movies, love the clothes. Favorites are: Some Like It Hot, Butterfield 8, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. I also love the PBS series The House of Elliott and 1940's house.
3. Favorite TV shows, Project Runway, Glee, Modern Family, Dancing with the Stars.
4. I have 2 adorable puppies ages one and two.
5. I love color. I love putting colors together that match. I think about color a lot and why colors work together or not. I also remember things by color, like events, I'll remember what color people wore.

My goal for November is to do two exercise sessions a day. One before work and one after work.

I can relate. I blew number 3 right off the bat today after breakfast so I chose another to do. LOL. Good quote!

Here's an update on my goals that I posted yesterday....#4, 5 and 8, I failed at yesterday. I did some snacking from food in the breakroom. Then I went to a potluck dinner at church. I had every intention of just trying to eat the basics with no dessert. Someone brought pumpkin cheesecake.....so I indulged not in three bites, but in the whole piece. Then I wanted more. Ugh! I brought lemon bars, and I had to take the leftovers home. I had a piece (or 2) after I got home. Is anyone seeing my lack of self control here? The good news is that I looked at my goals this morning, and decided I would do better today. So today I am making every attempt to do #3 on the list ......stay within calorie/carb range.

Here is No. 10 on the list. This quote encourages us to dust ourselves off, and to keep trying.........

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?

Thirty Days Hath September, April, June, and November..................... yes.............. it's November and time for our November Turkey Challenge.

This challenge will be a little different. You can do the daily challenges in any order you want. In addition, you can do one a day or all at them at once. Some of them are easy and some are more difficult. You do not need to do all of them. I expect you to post the challenge on here with specifics as to what you did. It's not enough to say, I did number 16. Be specific.

Give yourself a point for each of these challenges that you complete and keep a running total. I will be giving turkeys to the top winners until I run out of points.

Turkey Challenge

1. Make specific goals for the month of November taking into account the special challenges you will encounter.
2. Tell us at least 5 interesting and fun things that we don't know about you.
3. Stay within your calorie and carb range.
4. Revamp a favorite Thanksgiving recipe of yours to make it healthier.
5. Prepare yourself today for the end of daylight savings time which starts at 2 A.M. tomorrow morning. Stagger your meals. Reset the clocks before bedtime. Get at least 7 hours of sleep in.
6. Start planning for the Thanksgiving and the Xmas holidays. Make some lists and keep it simple.
7. Do some decluttering for 15 minutes.
8. Election Day - Vote for the candidate of your choice. If you don't vote you are part of the problem, not part of the solution.
9. Spend some time playing with a pet or a child.
10. Post your favorite inspirational quote
11. Veterans Day - Honor and give gratitude to a veteran for defending our country.
12. Find and post a healthy carb Thanksgiving recipe
13. Check out ways to save money.
14. Spend an hour pampering yourself.
15. Make your list of the people you need to buy for Xmas and suggest possible gifts for them.
16. Plan and post your Thanksgiving Dinner Menu - Make a guest list, invite people, make a shopping list.
17. Research some rewards that you would like for reaching your goals.
18. Purchase everything you need for Thanksgiving. For the bird 1 to 1.5 pounds of turkey per person is the minimum, more if you want leftovers. It can take 1 to 6 days to thaw in the fridge depending on the size of 4 to 24 pounds. So if your bird is big you may need to start thawing today.
19. Post the top 10 things you are most thankful for
20. Post your top 5 ways to relieve stress
21. Have a family night and do something fun like play a board game, watch a movie, etc.
22. Get your holiday cleaning out of the way. Get the fridge cleaned out and ready for food. Set the table if you are having the meal at your home. Get out all the equipment you will need.
23.Get part of the Thanksgiving meal fixed today, like the desserts, salads, sides so that you are less stressed and can spend more time relaxing with family and friends.
24. Have a Happy Thanksgiving - no stress, no overstuffing,
25. Don't overdo on Black Friday but get as much of your holiday shopping done as possible if you are not done already.
26. Get in a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio in today and do your strength training
27. Prepare for Winter if you have not already - have your emergency supplies (batteries, bottled water, meds), get your yard in order, clean the gutters, mulch your plants service your car (check your tires, battery date, antifreeze level, get the oil changed etc)
28. Listen to music.
29. Turn in your challenge points
30. Rest
