gobble gobble - the aftermath

I ate too much on Thanksgiving.  Didn't everyone?  (I'm talking to you America) Ugh.  Why do we do this to ourselves? I mean really.  I literally prepared myself for the over indulgence of food that was going to take place later in the week.  I ate like a bird Monday through Wednesday but come Thursday, oh it was on!  Not surprisingly, Friday morning I woke up at the crack of dawn and headed to the gym.  It wasn't pretty, but it had to be done.  I emerged two hours later, drenched in sweat, but proud of myself for sticking to it and not giving in to my inner voice that kept tempting me to leave the gym, with visions of my comfy bed and pillows waiting for me at home.

I had a great holiday!  Enjoyed the extra days off from work and spending time with family and good friends.  Lots of laughs, lots of dancing, lots of adult beverages and a few parties over the weekend, made for an awesome weekend.  Didn't step one foot into any retail shop of any kind either.  Unlike my friends Michelle and Maricela, who did their part to help out the economy by buying out most department stores in the greater Houston area.  -No lie.  So Turkey day 2012 is done.  Was it everything you wanted it to be?
Now, everyone is rushing hastily to get into the Christmas spirit.  But not this girl.  I'm still in post Thanksgiving delirium.  Kinda like right after you have sex and you're just laying there, trying to catch your breath, basking in the "after glow" and enjoying the moment.  Yeah, that's what it's like for me right now, minus the sex part.

Moving on.

How about those Texans???  Good grief!  Last Sunday they went into double overtime and four days later, they do it again.  I'm going to have to start taking my anxiety pills right before each game if they keep playing this way.  Talk about stressing out!  But hey, I'm not complaining.  10 - 1 is ridiculously AMAZING!!!

To your surprise, or delight (it can go either way)  this is all I have tonight.  I know, I know, you're sad. I totally understand and feel your pain.  But I'm exhausted and need to go to bed before I pass out.  You understand don't you?  Thanks, I knew you would!  I promise to have my A game with me next time.

It's a new week kids, make it count!

Sounds like you had a great weekend. A little indulgence can be good for the soul and going to the gym was a good idea to help burn off some calories after the fact.
We dont do Thanksgiving so I am already thinking Christmas

I actually did not overeat for T-day this year. To be sure, there was a ton of food available. But I had no problem making myself a small plate and not going back for seconds. If I overindulged just a little, it was with the desserts. Seems like every family member wanted me to have "just a little taste" of whatever pie or confection they had labored over for the holiday feast. So I kinda had no choice. Honest.

Yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it! :)

Glad to see you had yourself a good time. Your Texans are doing scary good. Makes me wonder how long such a streak can last. Guess we'll find out!

Those OT games are what will make them tough. A team that goes 10-1 without adversity goes out in the first round.

Mynx- Totally agree! Going to the gym helped me cleanse not only my body of sweat, by my soul. I felt lighter walking out of there! ;)

David- Your discipline in eating is admirable. Desserts did me in too. And yeah, it was like my entire family decided to "make" me sample EVERY dessert that was in the house! Needless to day, I deserved that trip to the gym Friday morning.

Ha! "Scary good" is about right. Oh they are going all the way to the Superbowl my friend, mark my words.

CW Martin- You're right. But the rollercoaster of emotions we go through during the games (especially the last two) are KILLING us! ha! said...

Glad you had a great Thanksgiving weekend, Yvonne. Keep those spirits up and drinks on hand.

Rawknrobyn- I'm trying! :)

Slyde said...

my thanksgiving was nice and relaxing for a change. just a small bit of family, and they all had the good sense to leave before they wore out their welcome :)

I did pretty good this year and only put on 2983 pounds instead of the ten thousand I normally acquire.

Yvonne said...

Slyde- it's always a plus when you don't have actually "tell" your family it's time to go home. hehehe

Jack- Ha! I think I found the rest of your 10 thousand!

Sounds like you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!!! Just what I would think of as just right. But that's my opinion. Ha! I love Thanksgiving and that whole over-done feeling...seems right once a year. Don't ya think?

Yvonne said...

YRJ- Heck yes I agree! :)
