I had a small gain this week. 0.4 lb. It's a bummer for sure but here's the thing, the scale at home is showing a loss which is good. Also, I think it may have been a clothes thing because I was wearing different jeans than last week. In the end I can't let it get me down. I had a great week in the food and exercise department so I'm happy with that. The scale will catch up eventually. My scale at home today said 175.2! That is the lowest I have been since having the boys. Feels great!
Today is the first of the 2 Thanksgiving feasts I will be attending. How will I plan for this you may ask? I ate light so far today so that helps and I will use a good portion of my 49 bonus points between today and tomorrow. I love pumpkin pie so I will be having some. I will just pick and choose the things I can't live without and leave the things that I don't LOVE! I do love turkey though so that's good, it's low on points. Also, I am planning on earning some activity points. I am going for a walk of the bridges today and I've already done an hour of yoga. Tomorrow there is a Body Pump class I am planning on going to. It's one hour of weights, works every muscle in your body! It's great. Lots of squats and lunges, ab work....you name it. I sweat in that one for sure!!
I am very thankful this year for my health. I am amazed every day by this body of mine and what it can do. I have come so far since January 12, 2011 when I had the second surgery on my ankle for tendon damage.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends and family :-) "We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude" - Cynthia Ozick
