Black Friday Facts

1. Black Friday is in fact named as such because wearing all black helps conceal the extra 6 pounds you gained from Thanksgiving.

It’s pretty genius if you ask me.champion hoodie

I definitely got crazy with the food yesterday, but I don’t think I was the only one… thanksgiving barbie(source)

2. Even though most of us had the biggest meal of the year yesterday, many will complain they had to park sooooooo far from the stores.

I walked to work today because my gym is located in a mall shopping center and I knew parking would be impossible. I’m embarrassed to say this is the first time I’ve done it, but I’ve decided to walk at least once a week from now on! (I work just a little over a mile from home, most of the time I have randomly scheduled clients so it’s not really convenient.)IMG_2586 (800x600)

3. An apple snack seems pretty tragic compared to yesterday’s cheese stuffed crescent roll appetizers.

After my client I chomped on an apple. I wish I would have brought some kind of protein to go with it though. I wish there was a protein tree I could grab an easy snack from.IMG_2588 (800x600)

Then, I passed out Black Friday flyers with my friend/co-worker. Time flew and before we knew it 1pm came and went. I didn’t get home until 2 and was unbelievably grateful for Thanksgiving leftovers!!!IMG_2590 (800x600)

4. If it’s in the house, I’ll eat it. I tried not too bring home too many desserts, but couldn’t resist a little treat after lunch.IMG_2594 (800x600)

5. I’ve never went out shopping for Black Friday deals and kinda feel like I’m missing out.

    Silly question, I notice that you put a lot of things into a salad that I wouldn’t think of. I really do not like salad, do you recommend this? The only salad I really like is the Asian Sesame Chicken Salad from Panera. I could eat it all the time if it wasn’t so expensive.

    You’re not missing anything. Black Friday shopping scares me. And black is always a good idea. There’s no way you ate enough for six pounds; it must just be bloat.

    I thought it was Black Friday because of the shopping! Like because it’s the biggest shopping day of the year the stores go from being in the “red” to being in the “black.” Or I could be making that up. Or you could be making up the black clothing day… 😉

    I didn’t go shopping either! I that was my excuse but really crowds and lines and fist-fights at Wal-Mart? No thank ya!!

    Black friday shoppers get craaaazy. I usually end up going later in the day (like noon or later) to avoid the riots and just see what all is left over.

  5. says

    I am the same way – if it’s in the house I’ll eat it. I try not to take any leftovers, but we usually end up with the desserts. Not that I complain too much the next day… Although the apple I ate yesterday tasted so weird, I mean, it wasn’t in pie form!
