It’s been a busy week so I’m sorry for the lack of posting. I just wanted to take a minute to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!!
I am so thankful to have all of you in my life…even if its just on this here blog and/or on Twitter. All of your support, encouragement and wisdom makes me a very grateful woman and gives me many things to be thankful for in my life.
I hope you guys enjoy your holiday!! Some of my own personal advise on how I deal with the holiday-
- I bring my own Fat Free gravy with me to dinner. I like gravy a lot and by using the fat free version I save a bundle of calories.
- Pick one or two items you really want to indulge in. For me, that’s usually mashed potatoes. Then just be sure to fill up extra on the good stuff like veggies & white turkey meat.
- Have at least one “safety dish”. Make at least one thing that you know you can have and not have to worry about feeling guilty when you eat it.
- ENJOY!! It’s one day people…sure, you can do some damage in one day but just enjoy TODAY. Enjoy the moments with your family (or try your damn best to), enjoy the spirit of the season, enjoy the smells, enjoy the food….semi sparingly
I am off to go run my own little turkey trot 5K…then cook up a couple dishes to bring to Frankie’s parents house. Have a wonderful and very happy Thanksgiving!!
I leave you with these funnies…
