HAPPY THANKSGIVING! hope everyone is having a relaxing day with friends & family :)

i’m currently skipping out on thanksgiving with family #1 (dad’s side) we decided that i needed to rest after the race this morning and that i could just meet them at family #2 (my grandma’s) it’s definitely one less stress i have to deal with, and for that i am thankful.

so yes the race :) my mom and i walked and the weather was surprisingly bearable. it was soo crowded, they said around 15,000 people finished…my mom and i did the 10K in 1:33-ish, 2 minutes faster than last year, score!

post race! most comfy shirt ever (& i think the mcD hat is funny)

my dad being an overachiever & runner finished in like 43 minutes, giving him a chance to grab me all kinds of free things :)

race loot! omg can't wait till i can eat these :)

he knows me so well :)

as for these past three sedentary days…they have been okay, yesterday night i felt pretty crummy which sucked and i have not enjoyed my lack of yoga (i never realized how good it actually makes me feel, ah i miss it so much!) i’ve been feasting on soft foods–

finally made a green monster right :) it was jungle-y -->spinach, frozen banana, milk, & pb

but alas all these soft & liquid-y foods have left me feeling full & huge, ugh it’s been uncomfortable, especially because i haven’t really done much in the way of exercising because i am just so tired (well and my mouth hurts). my tummy just feels liquid-logged ick. that being said i know i need to get back on track with my eats, i decided that i probably didn’t need to eat as much as i usually do since i was just sitting around, but now that i am feeling better i need to eat more. enter thanksgiving.

yes i like thanksgiving and spending time with my family, but i also know that i have comments coming my way (not just about my size, but the fact that i am transferring as well). i am going in with a plan of what i need to eat and the strength to ignore my dear family, they will say what they want to say but i will not let it affect me. that is the plan.

speaking of thanksgiving i better get my butt out the door or i am going to be late…love you beauties!

i shall leave you with one of my favorite affirmations :)

“I will not wait to have a good day. I will make one.”
