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.

  1. The best part about all of this (besides spending time with an amazing lady) was getting to participate WITH her in a 5k! We were blessed with a super beautiful morning, some great people spectating and the best reward of getting in 10,000 steps before we even went home to cook a healthy Thanksgiving meal!

    I adore you sparkly girl ❤ Keep going after it! You are SO WORTH IT ❤
