Glad That's Over
Saturday, November 25, 2017
I love Thanksgiving. I love having a holiday dedicated to Thanking God for all He gives us, counting our blessings. I love cooking all the family feast favorites and eating them with our family and friends.
...and I am SO glad that's over. I didn't track my food yesterday, but I think I ate fewer calories than I have in years past. I ate the foods I liked and said "no, thank you" to the foods I wasn't all that interested in. Got in walking before and after lunch. Much better than my usual nap.
I'll probably have a bump of weight this week, but it could be worse. I am working to keep my exercise regimen strong so I can enjoy an occasional favorite holiday treat.
I also said goodbye to Jillian's challenge. I am stubborn, but not self destructive. I was more supple and forceful at a younger age, but it took me a week to recover from aches with Ms. Pretzel. I'm back to Leslie Sansone. Did 3 miles tonight. Yay!
My goal is to make it through the next two months with no weight gain, maybe lose another
five pounds with the last few weeks of the Fall Challenge.
I really love the holidays. Putting up my Christmas tree tomorrow. Baking cookies for church. (I love baking them. Take them to church so other people can eat them.) So far our only plans for Christmas are to spend it quietly at home, remembering our Lord. That sounds so good to me right now!
