Someone reminded me yesterday that Thanksgiving is 11 days away! Well 10 now..yikes! I hadn't even really thought about it. To make it a little more crazy, my hubby's birthday falls on Thanksgiving. So I need to plan not only a meal but also something special for him. Deep breaths.
The two week challenge officially ended on Saturday. I lost 2.6lbs!! Thank you Mamavation, Mark, and Bob Harper. I also have to say Bob Harper commented on a tweet of mine about the challenge which yes made me blush. Congratulations to all the other sisters who finished out the two weeks with me.
I plan on getting to the gym at least twice this week. Also, I have pledged to myself not to over eat during the holidays. It just isn't worth it to me to gain back what I've lost. Aside from mentally prepping myself, my other trick for not stuffing my face is wearing tight pants. Don't laugh it works! Imagine how uncomfortable you would be eating a lot without the comfort of elastic waist bands.
How are you planning on making Thanksgiving healthy? Do you have special tricks to keep from over indulging?

I CANNOT believe Thanksgiving is so close! Time is flying by. I think it’s going to be hard to not over-indulge this year. My husband needs to work, so we’re staying home for Thanksgiving but I’m still planning on making a turkey and some traditional dishes. I’ll have to adjust the serving sizes to not make as much I guess!
Congrats on your weight loss!!!
I love being able to be in charge of the meal!
Wowza, US Turkey day is so close. We keep a lot of harvest rather simple at our table and do not make an excessive amount of food. This year my niece and her husband are visiting and they are vegans that also share our simple celebration of the harvest mentality.
A vegan thanksgiving, that is very interesting!
I have no tricks, but I’m going to force myself to not indulge too much. I really like mashed potatoes. 🙂
I did too, I made mashed sweet potatoes to satisfy the craving or maybe you could try mashed cauliflower
