Happy Thanksgiving! Today was all about family and friends, and the Redskins! I felt so loved and so blessed today. Steve and I worked all morning to get the house clean and dinner ready. Then, his mom came over, and a friend of mine from work came over. It was so nice to sit down and relax and enjoy each other’s company.
But, the best part was that Michael actually enjoyed his
dinner. He had several items on his
plate at once. He didn’t want the food
to touch, but was able to move things aside and not panic when they did. And, he ate a decent dinner. It was wonderful.
The biggest surprise of the day was when the Redskins
actually won their game today. They
haven’t had the best season and they rarely win against the Cowboys, and never
on Thanksgiving. So, even though it wasn’t
the most important of today’s happy events, it was definitely the most
Tomorrow we will go back to our regular routines and I’ll be
back at the gym. But, it was really nice
to take a day and just relax as a family.
And, it was nice to eat some carbs, too.
And, now it will be time for me to get into the holiday spirit. I try really hard not to think too much about
Christmas until after Thanksgiving. But,
now, it’s time!
I guess that means that I really need to focus on my diet
the next month or so. It’s so easy
around the holidays to have just a little bit of this, or to make a special
treat. But, I’ve come so far, I
definitely don’t want to lose ground now.
The good news is that my family is really supportive of my program, so I
know they will make sure to not offer me things I can’t have! And, I am strong enough to say no if they do!
