JOURNAL

Happy Thanksgiving!

Soooo I didn’t do as well as I wanted today, BUT it’s only one day, right? The biggest problem for me will be the next few days. I’m out of my element at my parents house and I tend to overeat a bit when I’m here. Mostly becuase there is so much more available. What is it about grandparents and junkfood?!?! I mean everywhere I look there is another temptation!

As promised, here is my food journal. These points are total estimates but at least I tracked. I’m posting it quick, I’m on my moms older computer and we are watching movies. Man do I love holidays!

  • clementine – 1
  • pear – 1
  • lite english muffin with a slice of cheese, lean ham and mustard – 4
  • veggies (no dip) – 0
  • Thanksgiving meal (turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, applesauce, 3 crescent rolls -no butter) – 17
  • nonpareils (I just couldn’t stop once I started) – 5
  • slice of pumpkin pie – 8
  • slice of apple pie – 9
  • TOTAL – 45

OUCH!

Overall, not that bad, it could have been a lot worse. I purposely stayed away from wine, butter and other empty points/calories/fat, whatever. I rather splurge on the pies and other treats that are only around on the holidays.

I may not be back until Sunday. It’s tough to post away from home.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Until you left a note at Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen I never knew this blog existed. I like! I like!

    I happen to like so much that hopefully next week I will do a review of the blog over at Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen as I am positive the readers will love your “Weight Watchen Page”!

    Go Girl! Go!

    You’re right, it is only one day! I had this idea that I would only enjoy something that is only cooked once a year and it was apple pie…it was delicious.

    My last two days have been less than stellar, too. But I’m back on plan today. I will stick to it! Congrats again on the cover–you look fab. Must get the magazine next time I’m at the store.

    One Day!!! A celebration. You did a great job there too! I’m trying to avoid all the leftovers at our house. We still have way too much and it’s very tempting.

    I completely know where you are coming from on this one. Something about being around my parents just makes me eat. I think it is a blessing that I live 6 hours from them. I am overweight, but might be scary obese if I lived there I think!

    Tomorrow is another day–let’s make it a good one!
