Today we will have 13 people over, and I still have to clean my kitchen and make my stuffing, but I wanted to come by and tell you how much I lurb you!
I ate a little more than I had hoped in carbs, but you know what? I’m not sweating the yams or the sugar-free cranberry sauce. It was all delicious and filled with nutrients.
Now on to how I’ve been doing with our Mid-Year Challenge… Be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled share my progress and thoughts, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). Be sure to subscribe for updates by adding your email right (in the sidebar) or through Feedburner in the title bar up top. You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for regular updates.
I ate this:
Breakfast: Velveeta Fudge (I need the fat)
Lunch: Yams, cranberry sauce, turkey, oopsie stuffing, green beans
Dinner: Yams, cranberry sauce, turkey, oopsie stuffing, green beans
Snack: Yams, cranberry sauce, turkey, oopsie stuffing, green beans
Exercise: Cleaning and moving furniture
Notes: I am not swayed to eat off-plan because I have to weigh in Monday. One of my favorite things about TOPS is that even though there are holidays, TOPS still has weigh ins every week, and I can’t afford to miss it! I really push myself to be accountable, and it’s hard to lie to a scale, now, isn’t it? Unless you yank the batteries…
What I learned:
People are more important than food.
As a former binger who could never get enough when there were carbohydrates on the line, today, instead of obsessing over rolls, pies, and bread stuffing, I am more excited about putting the most flavorful food I can on the table and enjoying everyone coming to my house to spend this day with us.
People love you. Food doesn’t even have arms to hug your neck.
