I think the hardest part about thanksgiving is getting back on track after the eating fest that goes on the day before. For me it's hard because after thanksgiving comes. . . Friday. Another day off. SO I'm trying to be smart.
I started with a easy breakfast and met some friends for coffee. I felt my body release a little. Thanksgiving is with family but they can get on my nerves at times. One of my cousins actually asked me how SLU was (I graduated in the spring. . . woops). So hanging out with some old high school friends (I'm still close to three or four) was really fun.
After that I returned home to . . . homework. Mom made chicken and rice soup for lunch plus some leftover rolls and a little cranberry sauce for dessert. I was glad she went with a lighter meal. Then back to homework and some work my Mom needed done (we moved our porch furniture into the barn). Then a little more homework and I was ready to work some of those extra calories off.
I mixed up my tread mill workout- ran three miles- walked one- and tried a skipping, walking, hopping mix up for my last mile. Plus some abs, arms, and legs work Traci Anderson style. I feel better and lighter today.
Tonights plan is to eat out thia with a good friend. My family is actually frying fish, so my out meal may be the healthier choice. Goal is to leave some on the plate. That way I won't get over full. Maybe a walk or maybe some yoga when I get home. Def a movie and def trying to finish my homework
Well happy black friday
