Thanksgiving November 30, 2009
So I survived the Thanksgiving weekend. When I weighed in this week I didn’t have a loss but I didn’t gain either. So for me that is a win. We had city chicken at my Moms for Thanksgiving (its a mix of pork and veil in cream of mushroom soup) I really thought I wasn’t going to like it but it was good. I just had one skewer of it so 2 cubes of pork and 2 of veil. I did really good on my portions of green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and a salad with walnuts and cranberries with a light vinaigrette dressing. I am really proud of myself because I didn’t go back for seconds. I did have a nice size piece of pumpkin pie but how can you resist that 🙂
One other thing I am proud of is that Hilary and I got up early to go to the gym on Thursday. I don’t think that I would have done that before. Now that we are giving ourselves these challenges it makes it easier to go. Not easier in the workout that I never want to do but knowing that we need to complete the challenges together to go so I don’t want to be to much behind her. I am glad that we don’t just have a weight loss challenge, this is the worst time of year for that, but we can really control making sure we get to the gym!
