@retiredandlovingit I hope you and your family had a good Thanksgiving. Now to work off the holiday weight.@cbabie Did you get in a walk? Next Thanksgiving, you should facetime me so baby girl and I can watch the parade together. Just the last 30 min. Maybe you had to cook alot of the Thanksgiving meal growing up and that's why you don't like it. My job was always make tea and set the table. Clear the table. Oh I know because I was busy watching the parade each year.@gemwolf110 Did you and your furbabies have a nice holiday?@teresaw1020 The parade was okay. I think part of it is the floats. They try to put in new floats and I like the old floats because it reminds me of my childhood. Although I did like Pokemon. So are you back to your 500 cal meal yet? I'm going to tone mine down a bit today and then tomorrow hit it hard with my red.@trooworld I got 50%. I know why I don't drink more because I'm not inspired. I don't like the after effects if my stomach gets too full. Which happens if I try and catch up to get 100%. I'm not much of a liquid with meals person. But I can learn to be. Although if I would allow myself to make sweet iced tea, I could drink 3 glasses at a meal. Probably cause that's how I grew up. Especially if it's cold with lots of ice.@mswatson0777 Balance in my life.....these days seem to be nothing. so no balance. I'm journaling the reasons WHY to see what I can come up with. Exercise is still going good. That's usually my downfall. So I'll have to figure out that one too.
Oh my dd is calling me.
Start thinking of December goals.

@theslightedgeforever Yes, I’m back to my 500 calorie meal today. I just ate a big lunch and won’t have any dinner. Gotta get that scale back to going in the right direction. @mswatson0777 My daughter used to be very addicted to playing SIMS. I hope you have hours of fun. Your Thanksgiving dinner looked so good!! @trooworld That is a good idea to listen to a book while getting your teeth taken care of. I am sure your tree will be beautiful. And yes your weight will totally be back down next week, just like mine will be. Sorry, you aren’t feeling well.
Hi everyone! Well, today didn’t go exactly as planned and I’m sitting here still trying to pull myself. I was up at the church with my mom, pastor, his wife, and two other ladies. We were all doing fine and almost done when Rob, my pastor thought that he could stand on a swivel barstool to hang lighted garland around the stage. Well, he couldn’t, and he fell off the chair and landed face-first on the floor with his head wedge against a very sharp baseboard. I quickly grabbed the barstool he was on top of and moved it out of the way and yelled for someone to call 911 but no one could find their phone quick enough so I grabbed mine from my back pocket and made the call while his wife turned him over because his breathing was awful and I for sure thought he was dying! He had blood pouring from his left temple that had quickly formed a huge golf ball-sized bump. After I got off from 911, I had to help Rob’s wife hold him down because he kept trying to get up. He was clearly in shock and started saying his left arm hurt. It was already very red and swelling fast. The ambulance came and took him to the hospital. I called my DH who came up and helped us finish the church and clean up the mess. I just heard from his wife and the MRI came back clean. He has a very bruised left leg, and his left arm and wrist are broken pretty badly, and he will have to have surgery in the next few days. They think he might be able to go home this evening. It’s a freaking miracle!! We have another member of our church, who is also a pastor doing the message tomorrow. Which just happens to be titled, Hope. I need a drink!

@trooworld I don't think a runny nose is COVID related so hopefully it's just a cold. Either way getting sick is never fun. I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well and hope you feel better soon.@cbabie I bet it was super cute to watch her dance around to the music! So sorry you didn't get to see your Grandson, but I'm so glad his mom went all out for him for the holiday. I called my Grandma yesterday and she was a little down since my Dad and I used to visit her on Thanksgiving and this year due to COVID no one was able to come down (and my Dad passed away two years ago which adds an extra layer of sadness). I am going down in 2 weeks since I'm quarantining so we do have that to look forward to
Good Morning Everyone! I got another four pages knocked out on my intro chapter yesterday morning (dissertation writing is much slower going than regular writing so it's usually at least an hour/page of work for a first draft). I stuck to my goals and felt like I did a really good job getting my workout in and not having too many treats.
My one black Friday purchase was my SO bought me the Sims 4 to help keep me entertained this winter. I seriously love him so much. I recreated our little family in the Sims last night, including our two dogs since he got me the Pet extension (he knows me so well!). Hopefully these two weeks of quarantine fly by until I can see my Grandma.
