Thanksgiving plans

Happy Early Thanksgiving everyone!

I hope everyone has a blessed holiday and looks back at the year and can truly appreciate how far they have come and grown (or shrunk lol).

This year I look back and I am SO thankful we were not home for the tornado. I am SO thankful my children had minimal trauma. I am SO thankful for my in-laws who have let us stay in their house thru our bad times. I am SO thankful that we are starting over and are learning from the bad times I am thankful for our health. I am thankful for my kids and husband though they can be trying some days. These are just a few things I am thankful for.

Now to business. I got in my 45 minutes of zumba yesterday before my legs said enough! And as the day went on, the more sore I got. Ugh. Tonight is core, triceps and chest with Eric. Yippy skippy! And I can tell you that I was NEVER sore like this from P90X so my BET would be that I see good results from working with Eric. Not sure what I am going to do for warm up. My legs are still sore and I am not sure how much running I will be able to stand.

My plan is the next time they have a sale on the personal training (hopefully right after the new year) that I can get locked in on the lower rate again and continue on.

I weighed in today at 181.5. Last night I went a little off track and made some popcorn using coconut oil. I usually bloat after having popcorn. Not sure why but it is a fact of life. So I am not sweating it when it is a nice treat every once in a while.

Hopefully today my Healthe Trim comes- but if it doesnt, it wont ruin my Thanksgiving. Thanks for thinking of me Linda. See, I have a plan.

I PLAN on having some Turkey. I will be bringing a sweet potato for me (no candied kind for me thank you very much) and some corn. I will also be bringing raw veggies and I will eat as many of those as I want. I will also be making a clean apple pie to take with us. So it should be nice. The Healthe Trim would just be a nice buffer. :)

And I PLAN on working out and doing some Zumba tomorrow morning before we leave for the dinner. I am hoping to get an hour in. We will see how I am feeling. Always helps to get the burn started for the day. And our dinner isnt until 4 so we will basically need to eat and run to get the kids home at a decent time for bed. I think we will be going over to my aunt and uncles about 2:30-3ish and their house is about an hour away.

What are your plans for Thanksgiving? What are you thankful for?

And here is some fun that I found yesterday while on Pinterest....Consider them my Tips of the day!


  1. Help me make it happen for 'Help a Christian Family to Get Food and Shelter' on Indiegogo
    this Thanksgiving and Christmas

    I'm writing to let you know about 'Help a Christian Family to Get Food and Shelter'

    Take a moment to check it out on Indiegogo and also share it with your friends. All the tools are there. Get perks, make a contribution, or simply follow updates. If enough of us get behind it, we can make 'Help a Christian Family to Get Food and Shelter' happen.

    God bless you

  2. I knew it wouldn't ruin your eating plan, just get you aggravated and annoyed. No stress! Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade? I have had it on every year for as long as I can remember. My kids don't care about it anymore, but it's a tradition, dang it!

    I'm starting my running streak tomorrow!
