Invitation, Eats and Things (Day 83)

Happy Thursday! It’s only a week until Thanksgiving.

Are you planning ahead and thinking about what you will do the next week for Thanksgiving?

Will it keep you on track if you’re involved in a weight loss challenge? From now until December 31, why not join over 250 of us as we work to lose weight by December 31. You’ll usher in a healthy, happy, skinnier New Year and new you as a result! Just let me know and I’ll add you to our group. I’ll need your first name, last name initial, and how much you’d like to lose by December 31!

I will them email you at the email address you leave me with and share the google spreadsheet link where you can update and keep track. I’ll also send you a link to our private Facebook Group where you can glean daily support, laughs, and cheeky, sassy, fun.

Why not join and become a happier you? Think of what you can accomplish in 6 weeks! I am here to cheer you on!

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.

Thursday, November 15

I ate this:
Breakfast: Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage patties, perfectly fried in a pan. Love!
Lunch: Fudge (recipe Monday) with frosting (coming soon)
Dinner: Olives + uncured salami + cheese + 1/4 cup mixed nuts

Running around doing errands in the house.

Notes: I have had a very productive day–just not in the way I had anticipated!

What I am thankful for:

I am so thankful today for little things, like hot sausages in a pan, funny Youtube videos, and overcast, gray days that take me back to living in Aloha, Oregon.

What are you thankful for today?

  2. Hey! I’m from Aloha, OR!!!

    I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving this year to try out a bunch of new healthier recipes! I recently discovered that I don’t hate baking. lol. 🙂

    • Hey, Miss Funkylicious! I loved Aloha hard. I miss it. I’d come back, but it’s as expensive to live there as it is to live here now. My former house I only spent $180k for is now a good $50k more. What jacked up the prices? Did people discover your awesomeness? Tell them to go home so I can come buy a house.
