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?
