Jinx! Embers! Cheese ball!
Speaking of which, I've gotten emails, comments and messages about how the weight loss coming and such. Here's the short version...we've maintained this year. I know that's something to be celebrated to a degree but I'll go into it more soon. Just know I don't post weigh in's anymore because they're the same every week. Up, up then down. Same, same, same. Up, down up, up, down, down.
Not exciting, I know. To see it in writing just reinforces we're not doing what needs to be done and I'm pissed that it's not really registering on my "things I give a sh*t about" list right now. Sometimes embers can be re-stoked, sometimes they continue to smolder waiting for the right wind to come along.
I promise I'll never let them die though. I would be letting you down but more importantly we'd be letting us down and that's not happening because being almost 500 lbs again will NEVER be an option. I'm not satisfied with maintenance but not doing much to break the cycle either. I'll address it more in the near future. I don't have it in me to get all deep with the holiday sitting in my lap. ;-) But thank you to all who have asked and expressed your concern, I appreciate it!
Tomorrow is turkey day, ya'll. I'm making my "famous" cheese ball today to sit overnight and let the flavors settle in. I'll try to remember to take pics and put up a recipe. (Trust me, I know I'm slacking there too. Embers...remember?) Tomorrow morning I'll make our light pumpkin pie (the full sized version of these light pumpkin pie cups) and since my family doesn't really care if I slave over my delicious stuffing, I just save myself the time and dump some cornbread and onion and sage stuffing together, bake it and take it. Crap, I need to cut and saute my veggies today so I don't have to do it tomorrow. We're eating at 2pm which is like the worst time. In between meal times and we'll have to get up early and do a workout which means I'll be like sludge. I think I have Walk Away the Pounds scheduled. I wanted something easy but uses weights too. WATP is usually good for about 650 calories so that's fine. I'm hoping to get a snowball fight started but with my luck, I'll get nailed in the face and get a shiner just in time for company Saturday. *rolling eyes*
If you're traveling today, please be careful! Get there alive not fast. Give yourself plenty of time and have a safe holiday!
If you're celebrating Thanksgiving, do you host or bring side dishes? Do you have a specialty that people request?
