I'm just motoring right along, thanks for asking. No big changes really. Continuing to slowly lose and feeling better and better all the time.
Today is day #80 for my nutrition/exercise program and all is well. I missed my twice daily power walks on the last two Sundays due to weather and scheduling -- my first two misses in 80 days. After each miss I felt even stronger on the following day so maybe there was some positive to it.
I also snacked on both of those days which has become very unusual for me. The big difference is that my snacks are now sardines packed in water, bananas and apples and not pizza, Doritos and ice cream. Very slowly I'm learning it seems.
I have to go to a long scheduled dinner tonight (turkey cooked in the ground) where I expect to eat a non-diet portion. I will endeavor to stay away from the beer and wine and also the dessert. I'll report back how it goes.
Thursday is Thanksgiving. It's not a big deal this year thank goodness. I am going to make prime rib with the all-time easiest and finest process ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUQ49SoteE0 It's almost a miracle. Everyone should try this recipe at least once.
Friday I have to go to a cocktail party where I plan to stick to club soda. Enjoy your turkey day!
Last night's meal went fine. They had a terrific mixed green salad with grape tomatoes and a raspberry vinaigrette of which I ate 4 bowls full. The meal itself was typical thanksgiving fair.
I stayed away from the dessert as I was spending time scarfing down all the salad. I had a few good beers -- my first alcohol in more than 90 days. I don't regret spending the calories on them.
I need to remember to take the prime rib out of the refrigerator by 8am today. I like to give it at least 8 hours to come up to room temperature. Don't forget the horseradish cream with your prime rib! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7a8EyiWQoA
