|The Day After|
November 27, 2020
It was a lovely Thanksgiving at our house yesterday. I was feeling EXTREMELY guilty because I felt like I ate so much. I didn’t enter stuff in my food tracker until later in the evening so I had a few hours to feel like a total failure because I had a little bit of everything (and when I say “little” I mean LITTLE… maybe 1-2 tbsp of everything but the turkey). I even had dessert. Well… bites of dessert. But because it was so delicious, I was feeling like I went off the rails. Once I sat down and entered all of my food in my food log… ha! I was lower in calories than I am on most days but the bad part is… I didn’t get my protein in. My turkey portion was the biggest serving on my plate (about 2 oz) but that and my Greek yogurt for breakfast was in no way 60-90 grams of protein! But all-in-all… I did fine. I’m not going to sweat it because considering how I’ve eaten in years past… this wasn’t even on the radar. It was so fun doing all the cooking. I really enjoyed that. And being able to have a tiny bit of everything I wanted made it really satisfying for me. No regrets… even on the biggest eating day of the year. I do need to increase my water. I think that’s going to be my goal for the remainder of the weekend.
How am I feeling? Physically – so good. I slept a full 8 hours last night and am very rested after a busy day yesterday. Mentally/emotionally – very content. So much to be thankful for and it was a great celebration yesterday.
Enjoy your weekend, all.
