The eating still has NOT stopped! I’m serious. well…. it’s slowed down a bit. :~) I’ll admit it, I went little nuts on the "big" day. It wasn’t the turkey, or the potatoes (that were PERFECT by the way) it was the freakin’ Berger Cookies. I mentioned these before. There are made by the devil himself. One stupid cookie is like 3 points and I, well…. ummmm….. lost count. I don’t remember, I ate at least 5 through out the night.
Other then those, a few nonpareils, some wine, and ohhhh the cheese. The cheese cheese, cheese, cheese. One thing I can’t pass up is the CHEESE, CHEESE, CHEESE CHEESE! (Did I tell you we made a new family tradition of watching the Grinch on Thanksgiving night? I LOVE Dr. Seuss!) I did o-k. Ohhhh crap. Who am I kidding? I did horrible. I ate past my point of fullness, skipped over the veggie platter for the cheese and crackers and even went a bit nuts on the wine and Bailey’s Irish Cream.
H-o-w-e-v-e-r… in addition to cooking the entire meal myself for eight, I snuck in a 2 mile run Thanksgiving morning! That’s a first for me. It felt awesome! The turkey was in the oven, the potatoes were peeled and appetizers out. I told the family I needed 20 minutes, slipped on sneakers and hit the pavement. I have to admit, at first I wasn’t into it, I was fighting my brain the whole way but by the end of the first mile I was so happy I was out getting in some activity.
Here’s the run….
When I got back I went to synch the iPod and show my family how the Nike+ worked I was presented with this…
Apparently I ran 100 miles this year!! Actually since June, because that’s when I bought the Nike+. Plus, I have ran quite a few times without it. So that’s REALLY cool! At least I think it is. :~)
I also went to the gym this morning to get some weight training in. So I guess you can say I’m on point with the exercise thing. I just need to ring in the eating again. MAN! it always seems to be one OR the otherm doesn’t it?
So I hope everyone’s Turkey Days went off without a hitch! I’ve been enjoying a lot of family time. Besides the meal, yesterday my mom and I took the kids for a walk after dinner. The adults had fun playing board games until the wee hours of the morning. Today we walked, oh, ummmm at least a mile shopping (a mom/daughter tradition) and tomorrow we are taking the toddler and my niece to see Bolt. THIS is what the holidays are about for me, family time. I just wish there wasn’t so much darn food involved! :~)
I have guest until Sunday so I’ll be a little distant until then, although I plan on posting when I can. Just remember Thanksgiving is over and no matter how much you ate, today is a new day and tomorrow is too! :~)
