A weekend of food, family, and exercise

Hello!  Long time no blog.  I need to get back on a schedule here!  I have a few minutes over this wonderful Thanksgiving weekend to give a recap!  I’ll start with a few pictures from THANKSGIVING!!!  The day started perfect with a fast run!  I felt so good.  Then I ran to the gym with a quick change of clothes and did my favorite Body Combat class.  It’s a good thing I’ve kept up my workouts over the weekend because I’ve eaten my fair share.  We had two Thanksgiving dinners with both sides of the family.  I only took a couple pictures.  This first one with my twin has a little meaning.  Over the summer I talked about wearing white pants to my parent’s 50th anniversary party.  I thought they were too tight then.  Happily on Thanksgiving they fit me perfectly!  I haven’t even been weighing myself!  The other one is with my cute Dad.  He always gives me the greatest compliments.  He’s not biased in any way!

0001YS 0001GuThis was quite the variety post!  Happy December coming up!  It’s going to be a wonderful month!!  I’m looking forward to the season!  Have a wonderful day.  So much to be thankful for!
