I survived Thanksgiving (AND the day after)!

Golden brown turkey + stuffing + cranberry orange sauce + mashed potatoes + sweet potatoes + gravy + lima beans + homemade pumpkin pie = Perfection!

What you say?!  Yes, this Thanksgiving I decided to take the turkey by the beak and show him who’s bossl!  Instead of waiting around all day eating little to no food, I decided to make Thanksgiving a day like any other.  I ate my normal breakfast, my normal lunch, and even had a glass or two of wine.  And by the time the infamous Thanksgiving dinner came around – I wasn’t starving, but still ready to dig in.  I took a little bit of everything that my mother so graciously made and enjoyed every glorious, scrumptious bite!

Fingers crossed, that I finally ate correctly this year, I woke up this morning and I felt GREAT!  No fatigue, or feeling like there was a 10 pound brick in my tummy…just happiness and satiation!

Now. . . the leftovers.

OK – I overcame yesterday (MAJOR accomplishment), but could I do it again?!  With pure temptation staring right at me as soon as I opened the refrigerator door, I closed it and regained my composure.  I put away my dinner plate and took out a salad plate.  Then I put a little of everything on the plate, heated it up, and Voila! The day-after-Thanksgiving-day turned out to be a success!  AND for the icing on the cake – it was totally satisfying!  It just goes to show you; A little bit of planning and a dash of will-power and anything can be done!

Hooray!  Can’t wait for weigh-in day!

(Wow – I never thought I’d hear those words after a holiday meal!  LOL)
