Thanksgiving Day Challenges

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Today is Thanksgiving. When I thought ahead to my plan, I thought I would watch my portion sizes, eat 3 meals, exercise today and allow myself dessert. Well, things certainly have not turned out the way I planned.

Always plan ahead and be prepared with a back up plan.

Hubby made a big breakfast, which actually ended up being brunch. I skipped the cinnamon buns….who makes cinnamon buns on Thanksgiving morning! I was saving some calories for dessert after dinner. I ate some clementines with brunch instead and they were delicious! I’ll have to admit there was some discussion this morning when I saw what his plans were – instead of feeling grateful that he was taking the time to cook for us, I saw it as sabotaging my healthy plan. I did adapt and made a healthy choice with the clementines.

Then on to my workout. The DVD has been having some difficulty the past few days and didn’t work today! I was all ready to go, however I think it needs to be replaced. I haven’t made up for missing the exercise yet today. I am hoping to get a walk in outside today.

Things still look good for a healthy dinner and a treat for dessert. We are invited to dessert at a friend's house. I am grateful for my friend and look forward to our families spending the evening together. We are bringing a sweet treat as well as a box of clementines. So there will also be a healthy choice available.

How is your Thanksgiving turning out?

    I didn't indulge in the sweets much, but enjoyed the mashed potatoes and gravy (my biggest temptation). The scales showed it the next morning, but the leftovers are all gone now and we're back on track.
