Hi there! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We had a great holiday and also celebrated my birthday on Sunday 🙂 I can’t believe it is already December!
I love the idea of fitting in exercise on Thanksgiving morning so that the rest of the day can be spent celebrating with friends and family. Turkey trots and other Thanksgiving day runs have become really popular. Our small town has a turkey trot, but I totally forgot to sign up! 😦 Sad day! So, my husband and I waited until the weather warmed up and did our own version of a turkey trot. We walked for about an hour and it felt great! Definitely a perfect way to start our day!
After our workout, I started on my crock pot cranberry dish and went to help my mom set the table for dinner. We started dinner at around 7:00 and had all of the staple dishes…turkey, cranberries, potatoes, stuffing, rolls, broccoli and of course pumpkin pie! I tried to take a little bit of everything and enjoyed every bit! I was full and didn’t have seconds but did enjoy leftovers the next day. I have a weird love of leftover turkey with ketchup….odd I know! We had 13 people at dinner this year. It was a great group and we had a lot of fun!
For my birthday, I was treated to Starbucks and breakfast in bed and then spent the day with family! My mom and I went for a brisk walk in 20 degree weather and we finished the day with dinner at a Mexican restaurant! Margaritas and fried ice cream were great birthday treats! I’m excited for the year ahead!
Okay, that’s all I have for today! I’m planning a post explaining what dietitians do and the different areas that a dietitian can work. So, please comment if you have any questions on that topic!
How was your thanksgiving? What’s your favorite Thanksgiving dish??
