I’m taking it easy today. My arms are sore from yesterday’s upper body strength training, and my legs are sore from all of the running.
I did start out today with an easy 3 mile run in Mountain Brook, and then headed over to the JLCC to meet up with Ronnie and Walker the Wonderdog. They ran the Turkey Trot 10k . It’s always a blast meeting up with them.
Since I ate Thanksgiving dinner with the family on Monday night, I’m eating my typical food today. It feels good knowing that I’m not going to gain weight over Thanksgiving, and my logic dictates that if I can do that over thanksgiving, I can also do that over Christmas and New Years.
In my quest to eliminate food/alcohol temptations, we have decided not to make Christmas candy as gifts for folks this year. Not only is it expensive to buy all of the ingredients, I tend to eat a lot of the finished product.
The only possible temptations I see in my future are homemade sweet potato pies in December for Christmas and the possibility of going to the National Championship Game in New Orleans in January. I’ll have to practice self control with those pies at Christmas time. It’s a yearly tradition that I look forward to every year.
If Alabama makes it to the big game in January, Will, Tiffany, and I have tentative plans to take an Amtrak to New Orleans and go to the game (granted we can get affordable tickets to the game.) I’ll just wait and see what happens before planning out this trip… I’ll also consult with Sonthe.
Oooooh, I still have last year’s New Year’s Resolution to fulfill. My resolution was to lose 10 lbs in December. Let’s see what happens.
Last thing, Happy Thanksgiving! I am thankful for all of my readers, fans, friends, family, supporters, and haters. I love you all!! (I really do.)
