This morning I woke up ready for a run. But, my phone said it was 40 degrees outside! I haven’t run in that chilly of temps for a long time so I bundled up. I swear by the theory that the weirder you look, the warmer you are – hence the outfit…
I didn’t have a planned route and just went in one direction until it ended and turned around to find another way. I ended up running 5.5 miles at an easy pace.
My approach to turkey day is to eat like it’s my last day on earth. But also to get in some morning exercise and a post-dinner walk. Then, start the next day back on track. Seriously, I LOVE food and Thanksgiving is my favorite day of the year. I have said, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” in reference to Thanksgiving. One day isn’t going to kill me (and if it did – what a way to go!).
Thanksgivings Past (aka the best day of the year!)
Monday Mini-Goals for 11/21/11
Go to yoga once this week
Brush teeth after post-dinner hot cocoa
Snack on fruits, veggies and protein between meals (been getting a little crazy with the cereal and chips)
Question: What is your approach to food on Thanksgiving? Moderation? Go big or go home?
We’re staying at the Best Western in Healdsburg and have had a surprisingly good experience. The free breakfast is good and free internet is even better! I have some writing work to do while Ben meets up with a friend.
See ya later!
