A day for being thankful for the many blessings in my life.

My sister decided to host Thanksgiving in her new home yesterday - what a great time I had! Family visits when we are now all in our sixties (I arrived at 60 the day before) brought out some awesome childhood memories. We laughed and giggled - a lot!
... and food - I forgot to mention FOOD!
I came, I saw, I ate! I was stuffed more than the turkey, lol.
One pound. ONE pound! OMG! It was soooo worth it!!
I started with dessert and I ended with dessert - I can't even figure out how to log it all!
Today, back on track! Was it worth it? Yes, it was worth it to me. I planned for this and I decided that whatever the scale said today, I was not going to weigh and measure everything that went onto my plate and into my mouth.
I worked hard to get to where I am and being able to enjoy one day here and there must also fit into my program or I will not be happy and feel complete.
I refuse to be bound to "healthy living" if it means never being able to enjoy at least a taste of what someone has labored to create.
Bragging on my sisters creations brought her so much joy! She does cook and bake healthier than most people - this does not make anything "calorie-free".
I hope everyone in SparkLand had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday - and everyday.
**it's time to put the rest of my birthday candy into the freezer - and not into my mouth!
