The damage

Thanksgiving weekend is finally did everyone do?

Confession: I was bad. And it wasn't the turkey, either!

Thanksgiving dinner actually wasn't too terrible, calorie wise. I ate a couple of thin slices of ham, some spanish rice, green been casserole, and a couple of rolls. Small-ish portions, no seconds. Easy-peasy! I was feeling good.

So I told myself to go ahead and get some pie. One piece wouldn't hurt! So I did. A nice sized piece of cherry pie, and just a tiny bit of pecan.

But oh. Oh, the pecan pie! It was absolutely heavenly. What have I been missing out on all these years?? So...I had to do it. I went back and got a big, fat slice of pecan pie. And it was good.

And I may have taken another slice home to eat the next day. Still good. I'm pretty sure my new obsession is pecan pie. Perhaps the most fattening of all the pies, too!

So then my poor kiddo came down with a fever on Saturday night and all day Sunday (today too, although she seems a bit perkier finally) and we had to cancel a big day of fun plans on Sunday. She was so bummed out that hubby went to get her a treat for breakfast to cheer her up...donuts. Not just ANY donuts either...Krispy Kreme. A whole box. YUM.

And I didn't have one!!!

Nope, I had two.


Lunch was her choice again, to cheer her up. She choose BBQ chicken pizza and a steak sub. And was GOOD. :)

Since my day was already toast, I may have eaten the better part of a bag of chips last night, too. Maybe. And then this morning? I got through half of a Krispy Kreme before I finally handed the rest to my daughter to save me from myself. A downward spiral, indeed.

The good news is that my weight this morning is still on track. How, I have NO idea! Perhaps it'll be a delayed gain? Well anyway, I'm all dressed in workout clothes and planning to hit the treadmill soon. Lunch and dinner are all planned out and they are reasonable. I desperately need some healthy food provisions soon so as soon as the kiddo is feeling up to it, we are off to the grocery store!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and holiday!


  1. So... did you go through with your workout? Inquiring minds want to know.

  2. I can not tell a I totally skipped it.

    *hanging head in shame*

  3. Missy,
    If you don't want your weight to yo-yo, don't act like a yo-yo... How's that for a pep talk? ;0) I should write an inspirational book!

    Seriously though, you may be able to coast for a while, but that weight will start creeping up again if you don't keep up with workouts and healthy eating.
    Love ya.

  4. Good word, Shauna. I know you're right. I DID workout on Tuesday though...go me. Today (Wednesday) I didn't again. But I did move furniture around, so a bit of strength training, perhaps?

    Sigh. I really will get it together again soon!

  5. You are so funny with your furniture rearranging:0) I'd say that counts for weight lifting.

    Good job working out on Tuesday! Shoot for three times this week, and you're good;0)

  6. Shauna...I just had to tell you this. Look up at the pic with the tree in it. It's not there now. I rearranged the Christmas tree, too! It's a sickness, I tell you.

  7. I made the most amazing pecan pie for Thanksgiving! Not that I was the amazing part in any way - I just followed the recipe on the bottle of corn syrup! haha! But it was different than the one I usually make, which I didn't realize until I'd thrown all of the ingredients in, and it was SOOOOOOOOOO good! :) It's my weakness too. :(
