Well I am doing pretty well. I was at the gym for an hour where I used a stair climber, treadmill, and abdominal crunch machine. I definitely felt the burn and sweat. It felt good to workout, always does. My breakfast was small but large enough for me not to be hungry during the gym time. After i got out of the gym I waited about half an hour before eating my carrots, hummus, kiwis, and cereal bar. I am almost done with my 3rd cup of water and then I'll refill this big water bottle once again and hope to finish that by 2pm to then refill it again. and finish that by the end of dinner. I know Thanksgiving is in a few days and I haven't been super strong on my diet but I have been eating healthier and I plan to consciously limit myself on how much I eat on Thanksgiving. I'll try to avoid sweets and too much bread. We'll be going to my mother in law's parents house for Thanksgiving so I am not completely sure what all will be had there. Regardless, I'll pick the healthiest possible choices there are. Plenty of veggies and I'll have to be careful with the turkey. I love stuffing but I should either have a small amount or none at all. What are your plans for this Thanksgiving? Will you be conscious of what you eat? Or do you just not care?

Good workout. I'll be at my brother's for Thanksgiving and have my first Gluten Free Thanksgiving meal, since my SIL has tons of food allergies and be on this diet since late spring-- my brother and step-nephews are eating GF good as well. I'm conscious of what I eat, though I need to gain more weight in a few weeks before my 6-month physical.

@IvySaysHi I will. It would be a new experience for me. Is there gluten free stuffing I wonder?

I am in the UK so no Thanksgiving but Christmas has already hit the food shops. It is difficult to say no to some of the delicious things in stores. I definitely want to improve my fitness though as I feel my body shape is starting to change as I age. Good luck in choosing healthier foods. I think that it becomes a 'norm' if you repeat the habit enough.

@ivysayshi Good for you and the way you are eating right and exercising! I am going to weigh myself Thanksgiving morning and see what I weight then weigh myself New Year's Day and try not to gain but maybe lose weight! I am watching for sure what I eat this Thanksgiving! What kind of stuffing does your mother in law make? Boxed like my sister does or a homemade stuffing? I think we will have some kind of bread or another? But I can stick to the healthy foods!

Health is wealth. You sincerely fuse both work out & diet to achieve best outcome. You are surely going to have a good tempo & confidence on your Thanksgiving fiesta with such a committed health plan. Veggies as a major diet course shows your awareness & loyalty towards being fit & healthy. Stay fit, conditioned & vigour.
