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)
