End of the Year Wrap-Up

Thanksgiving – I visited my sister in Murfreesboro TN for Thanksgiving because she wasn’t going to be able to come home. I didn’t go overboard with cooking because of limited space but I did manage to cook chicken spaghetti, fried cabbage, potatoes, baked turkey wings and dinner rolls. I ate that at dinner on Thanksgiving and didn’t eat it as leftovers at any other point during my visit. I was so proud of myself!

Christmas - I had a two week vacation at Christmas that I knew would put my commitment to eating better and exercising to the test. How did I do? Well, I passed! I didn’t cook too many dishes and I didn’t take home food from my visits with family. My sister was able to come home for Christmas so we worked out together on some days.

All in all, I managed to keep my healthy habits consistent through the 2 major holidays. For me, that is a major accomplishment!!
