The reason we were so anxious to get home was because of a very special engagement we had today. Today was our Pre-Thanksgiving celebration with our group of friends. Patty and I have been celebrating Thanksgiving for the last 4 years with a group of friends that we have known since college. And since everyone spends Thanksgiving Day with their families, we decided 4 years ago, to celebrate the holiday, the week before with our group. We call it, "Friend's Thanksgiving." So, I actually have 2 Thanksgiving dinners each year. And for those of you who don't know me, Thanksgiving Dinner is my favorite meal of the entire year. And being that I have not cheated in a while, I decided that today was a special enough day, that I would not keep track of my points. I did not go crazy today with eating, but let's just say that the food that is in my stomach right now, can probably last me until tomorrow evening because I am used to eating several smaller portions during the day.
Having "Friend's Thanksgiving" today was very relaxing and fun. It has been a while since I have seen all my friends because I travel way to much. And I know I am going to be dealing with the consequences tomorrow because of my food selection and intake for today. But I take full responsibility for whatever happens on the scale tomorrow morning. I have a feeling that I will be back in the 230s for a short period of time, come tomorrow. And I will bust my butt to get back into the 220s if it happens. Life is too short to be letting small things, like weight fluctuation, get me down. When all is said and done, I had a great time today with a group of people that I love very much.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 35 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watcher's Points System)
Breakfast - 2 granola bars

Today I ran for 35 minutes on the treadmill. Tomorrow I will be attempting to play basketball in the morning and weight lifting in the afternoon.
