Over Indulge This Weekend? Recover Next Week.

Thanksgiving: the food-iest, carb-iest holiday of them all.

My day started out with cinnamon rolls. I eat them once a year, on Thanksgiving morning, while I’m watching the parade. I ate more than I care to admit.

We went to my family’s house for lunch. There was much food. I made apple pie. And ate it.


myself, my grandma, and my mom. And a lot of food.
Then my husband made dinner. He cooks once a year (twice if I’m lucky) and I dream about his mac & cheese. It’s amazing and I eat a lot of it.

Later on in the weekend there were cheese fries, chocolate pie and ice cream. Among other things.

So, to review: there was a lot of food and I ate all of it.

I’m still feeling the effects of over indulging. What I’m doing this week to recover:

  • Running: Two weeks until my 5K and I’m not letting myself skip any of my runs this week. 
  • I’m only eating foods that occur in nature for the next few days. That means no cinnamon rolls because they don’t grow on trees.
  • I’m playing outside. In addition to all the food I ate this week, I pulled a muscle in my arm and spent a good part of the long weekend sitting on my couch doped up on pain meds. I need some fresh air.
  • I’m going to start my day with hot water and lemon. I don’t know why it works, but it does!
  • I’m going to be nice to myself. Maybe a manicure or a massage or something as simple as a long bubble bath with a good book. It’s hard to remember to take care of yourself when the holidays get better–but it’s so important!

How was your holiday? What was the best thing you ate?

  1. Don’t you just wish cinnamon rolls grew on trees though!! Why can’t nature make such yumptuous treats?! 🙂 It looks like you’ve had a fabulous weekend! But time to get back good now! 😀 (you should have your husband make a year’s worth of that mac and cheese while he’s in the mood to cook, hehe)
