Happy Thanksgiving!!! I hope you are all with your family and friends to celebrate this day of thankfulness.
I did indeed rise early today and hit the pavement. I ate a Maple Nut Clif Bar before my journey. It was very sweet but proved to be good fuel for my half marathon that I ran this morning. That’s right, I finally banged out 13.1 miles and my finish time was 1 hour 49 minutes. It feels so good to know that I have the ability to run that far. I am thankful for the legs and strength that God gave me. Strangely, I was not hungry when I got back home so I hopped in the shower which was so refreshing.
Once it was time for food I of course made a messy bowl of yumminess.In the mix was 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, 3/4 cup pumpkin, a banana, 1 Weetabix biscuit, 1/4 cup Kashi Heart 2 Heart, 1/4 cup Cinnamon Puffins, 1/4 cup Original Puffins (I had a cereal party), 1 tablespoon cranberry apple butter and 1 tablespoon PB.
The PB swirl and cranberry apple butter were the stars of the show.
I am just doing my normal household duties – laundry, dishes, cooking. You all know what a weirdo I am about other people’s cooking so I am roasting some veggies at the moment to have for eats later on in the day. I know my mother-in-law will make turkey (I am not the biggest fan of it), stuffing (I absolutely despise it – yuck!!!), green bean casserole (I will not eat that either), baked sweet potatoes (I like my roasted version better – so that is what I am making) and I am sure some kind of bread. The list of things I will consume is short so I will take along my own food. The holidays for me are not about consuming mass quantities of food, it is a time to be together with my family. I much rather eat the way I always do because my body appreciates the healthy foods that I put into it. Years of tummy aches have left this method of eating essential to my well being.
Enjoy your day.
