Last year this time of year I was spiraling, I was gaining weight, having way to many cheat meals, enjoying the holiday meals entirely too much, etc. This year I have really enjoyed my cheat meals, but in moderation and thoughtfully planned out around running and other exercises.
Yesterday I should have been in a turkey coma, lazing around after eating with my body hating me, but I wasn't. I didn't binge, I cooked all of our favorite Thanksgiving fixins, only with a twist, everything with the exception of one desert and the broccoli casserole was made on the fat free to light side. As we sat around the table I was bragging about this and everyone was swooning over how wonderful everything was!
Before I even made the remaining dishes and began baking what I has pre-prepared the night before I headed out the door for a 2 1/2 mile run. A cold 2 1/2 mile run. I am proud of myself, I am proud that this year I have remained vigilant and have added running to my lifestyle. This year I am thankful for me!
