Lost in Thanksgiving

It has been a few days since I have been here to chat with you guys. Sorry about that the holidays are like a marathon for Kyle and I. The day of Thanksgiving we attend 3 dinner (more food than any human should ever eat) followed by of course Black Friday sleeping and visiting, and Saturday after thanksgiving dinner with my mom. Ok so here is the break down: Thursday Kyle slept in while I got up and watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade as well as the St. Louis Thanksgiving Day parade on tv...flipping channels is hard work I ate a lot of blackberries. Upon waking we had a yummy potato, sausage, and over easy egg was noon. Follow by getting ready yep that's right we were the cute, trendy couple who lives in a down town highrise apartment. Then the food began, however I had a plan! Dinner at house number 1, a few fruit items at house number 2, and dessert at house number 3. You know what it worked!!! I did not over eat on thanksgiving which is unheard of for me. Normally I am so full I can't even move and have eaten my body weight in pie and cake. Not this year I made a plan and I stuck to it.  I did eat a bunch of things I would never eat on a regular day, however besides spending time with family that is what thanksgiving is for.

Friday was the best day ever! We went for a short 1.25mile, it was cold and we both have colds so we didn't want to push it to hard, but we did lace up and head out. It felt great and terrible all at the same time. it was my first run since race day and my body physically felt great. My stomach and lungs on the other hand didn't fair so well. I had eaten so much weird food the day before that I had a stomach ache the whole time, and as we kept going the cold weather caused breathing to become more difficult. So we called it quits at 1.25 miles and headed to Panera to pick up some bread for the afternoon. This afternoon I got to meet my niece for the first time! She is so cute...I failed at picture taking because I was to busy hold this cute little baby. She is actually Kyle's niece, but I call her mine too because let's be honest she will be some day!

Now today is Saturday were suppose to get up at 9:00 go do a killer arm workout, make a cookie dough dip, and head off to see my mom for more food. (the flaw in my plan is a second day of food and pie)  However seeing as it is almost 10:00 and Kyle is still sleeping (which he needed to do because he hasn't been feeling well) it sounds like it will be breakfast, dip making, and off to see my mom instead. Which is ok because it allowed me to catchup on reading blog posts from you guys and catch you guys up on where I am.

If you celebrate thanksgiving how did it go? If not how was your weekend? Catch me up!



  1. awww that picture is adorable!!

    I'm glad you're physically mostly recovered from race day. And, great job for staying on plan over Thanksgiving!! Ours passed last month,and with all that dessert and good food, it is HARD to stay on track!

    1. It was hard! However I failed on day 2 of Thanksgiving and ate way to many pies!

  2. Great job on not overeating! I do that every single year too, but decided ahead of time, that would not happen, and it didn't. Although I still gained a couple lbs. :(
    Glad you had a good one!

    1. I gained a couple of lbs. back too and though discouraging I found that the fellowship with family and friends was worth it...whats a few lbs to loose again right?
