Thankful for some things at Thanksgiving
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
I am going to paint a Thanksgiving picture here that some will find less than impressive. First, by the time dinner was prepared and served by me I was pretty exhausted. I made all my Thanksgiving favourites sides and desserts. So, let's just say my will was pretty weak. So the bad news is I went back for seconds. The good news is that my servings were not as huge as formerly and I stayed conscious about what I was eating. I also tried to pick more of the less fattening things. There were two desserts but I found I could only eat a smaller size of one. Today, the pumpkin cheesecake was calling my name. I finally gave in and had a piece but it was just a sliver. I am going to ask my family to finish the rest of it tonight.
This morning I had the traditional turkey hangover, like a truck had run over me. The last thing I wanted to do was exercise but I went to my Zumba class and shaked some of that dressing off!
I could have been better, I could have been so much worse.
