I arrived in DC at about 10 am yesterday morning. I think that it’s key to go fly on Thanksgiving morning instead of Wednesday night. Sure, I’d have a few more hours with my family, but I’d rather not deal with all the stress of a crowded airport.
I had dinner with my dad, stepmother, brother, sister and stepmother’s aunt. All things considered, I didn’t eat tooooo badly. I made a feeble attempt to count the points and got something like 40 which is double what I’m supposed to eat, but I figured it was Thanksgiving and I couldn’t worry about points anyway. Plus, it just subtracted from my weekly alottment of points, which I will gain back with activity. I didn’t take any pictures of dinner because I didn’t really want to explain why I was doing it, so here’s a recap of what I had:
About 8 shrimp cocktail (although without the cocktail sauce – I don’t like it.)
A cosmo that my dad made
A big sweet potato with strusel and marshmallows. (So bad, but sooo good.)
Spicy Sauteed Broccoli
A little bit of salad
A very small slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream
A glass of white wine
I’m sure my diet could have done away with the sweet potoato but it was very good! I didn’t get a workout in, but I’m planning on running this morning on the Crescent Trail.
