Thanksgiving & giving thanks!

I had the most amazing Thanksgiving.  It didn’t revolve around food for the first time.  My friend Jen flew in from FL.  I met her a few years ago when she started filling in for my personal trainer.  We chatted and had lots in common, however I was a client and she has a strong work ethic. Anyway when the client/trainer relationship ended we became good friends.  Love her to death!  She is so motivating and helps keep me on track.

We did a turkey trot 5K early Thursday morning, then came home, took a nap and then cooked our amazingly healthy and quick Thanksgiving feast.  Turkey breast, paleo cranberry sauce, mashed cauliflower, carrot fries and green beans almondine. All of it was so good.

Later that evening I was able to take Jen on her first Black friday shopping trip.  Although we didn’t get up early Friday and hit the stores, we did manage to get some shopping in later in the day. Over the weekend we started tracking our food on the lose it app.  I am hoping that keeping track will help me to find out where I can make improvements.

All in all, it was a great visit and I can’t wait for her to come back.
