Ok, so I didn't do too terrible with my eating on Thanksgiving. I didn't quite "load up on the veggies and get small portions of everything else" like I vowed, but I didn't *gasp* go back for seconds. And for dessert I had a sliver of peach pie and a piece of apple pie. Not too shabby, although I'm pretty sure that the 10 glasses of vino I consumed more than made up for whatever calories I might have saved by not totally pigging out.
Here's what my plate looked like. You can't even see the turkey underneath the sweet potatoes and stuffing! Oops. By the looks of it, it doesn't seem like I skimped on anything, but I didn't need to walk around with my pants unzipped after the meal, so I'd say that's a victory. Don'tcha think?
I did go running twice during my break and did some pushups, crunches and ass lifting exercises one day, so at least I somewhat stayed on track in the workout arena. Although, I tried on the snug H&M dress I bought for my birthday party tomorrow, and noticed an unsightly roll of back fat popping out. I'm hoping I'll be too drunk to care about that though. I mean, who wants to stress about back fat on their 29th birthday party? Not me.
So, although I didn't totally bust the calorie bank over Thanksgiving, I need to try to do better over Christmas. It's gonna be freakin' hard, man! How do you keep your weight in check over the holidays? I need help!
