No Snack

Dinner: 2 HB eggs with tuna and crab meat salad - 450 calories

1,150 calories

I don't know if it is ketosis or what but I didn't feel hungry until I left the gym last evening. 46 minutes of elipitcal and 15 minutes of ab work. I am taking Wednesday and Thursday off from the gym in honor of the holiday and going out tonight after work to celebrate with some friends from work. I promised myself I would not go hog wild over the holiday. I went out of my way to buy the food I want to prepare and eat for myself since my boyfriend will be eating his mashed potatoes with gravy, corn, stuffing, and turkey. I bought jewel yams, baby spinach with romaine, and walnuts. Plus I have butternut squash and turnips. Food only I enjoy! I'm not going to lie, I WILL have a couple homemade rolls. I will enjoy some red wine. Here is the best part: I am Thankful for all that I receive and I thank God every day and not just for the holidays.

Take care.

Good day, Lora.

I think it's smart that you're planning ahead for the holiday.

I'm doing the same. I plan of bringing over a few dishes to my family's Thanksgiving dinner.

Congrats of the exercise as well! Very nice. I need to start up with a regular exercise routine. You're setting a good example that I'll hopefully soon follow.

I hope you and yours have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Lora,

Yum that sounds delicious. I'm wondering though, that at 1150cals for the day, and exercise, and an unknown carb count... do you think you might be at risk of going into 'starvation mode'??

How'd your Thanksgiving go, Lora?

Well I hope.

See you around the blogosphere!

I hope all is well with you, Lora.

I'm looking forward to your next blog entry - whenever the time is right.

Take care.
