Sunday after my 5k I did Pure Barre, then did yoga on Monday. That was the extent of my workout for the week. I'm not of the mindset that I have to earn my Thanksgiving meal, and since it's only one meal I splurge, I enjoy it. Tuesday I baked the second batch of pecan tassies, and I made a blueberry crumble. Both were hits, and since we had 3 desserts at the meal, I did bring back some of each to enjoy for the rest of the week.
Thanksgiving itself was gray and rainy, so I was happy I wasn't doing a turkey trot. The rain did hold out, but it was a humid day with the storm coming. I slept in until 6:15 (!) and then took my time through the rest of the day. Thanksgiving itself was great! I can tell I'm getting older though because I could only complete one plateful, and I was too stuffed to even think about seconds. I had turkey, Swedish meatballs, rolls, green bean clusters wrapped in bacon, cornbread stuffing with pecans, potato gratin, and sweet potato casserole. I tried to have a light lunch so I could indulge in all of this. Does the meme below sound familiar to anyone? That was one of my friends - she said she was full then 10 minutes later was ready for dessert.
We wrapped up the day playing a board game and putting Jurassic World on the TV.
Friday I decorated and started on my collection of Christmas movies. I watched the Muppet Christmas Carol and 2 Big Bang Theory Christmas episodes. Between the movies and TV episodes, I have to start watching early.
Saturday was a lazy, lazy day, with some quick errands and only going out at 8 to go to a pub quiz with friends. We used to do pub quizzes by Geeks Who Drink until our pub closed last year. We were able to get the team back together Saturday and we won the quiz! Between errands and pub quiz, I didn't do anything. The weather this whole weekend was gray, rainy, and cold. Like, low 40s with wind chills in the 30s cold. I know how to deal with cold, but it always seems colder in Texas. I don't know why.
Sunday I finally got back on the workout wagon and decided to shock my system with the RW Iron Strength. Let's see how I feel on Monday!
