The feast is over! I hope you did something active yesterday to burn a little before settling in. If not, that’s o.k. Today’s a new day to regroup. Here’s a treadmill workout guaranteed to get you back on track and feeling the burn.
It’s a good one that will leave you feeling like you kicked some serious boo-tah!
Yesterday was a very low key Holiday, as are most in our house. We started the day off with a nice family Turkey Trot of our own. I was thrilled when Ron said he’d come along for a run just as long as I pushed the stroller.
It’s been awhile since I pushed those big kids around on a run. I need to do it more often even though it really, really sucks. Pushing about 100 pounds of kids and stroller is a serious workout!
After 2 miles we split up. They all went to the park and I continued on for a total of 6.5 miles. I don’t know what’s got into me but I felt really good. My pace was rocking and the miles flew by. It was a gorgeous sunny day so that was an extra bonus. Woo-hoo!
We weren’t eating our Thanksgiving meal until later in the day so I got to enjoy a rare afternoon nap. After that I started on prepping everything. It all came together easily since we weren’t having a turkey or anything too big. Yes, you read that right. We did not have turkey. No one likes it so why would we make it?
I kept it simple
- Veggie Stuffed Peppers
- Mashed Sweet Potatoes
- Roasted Brussels Sprouts w/ Cranberries
- Crescent Rolls – Ron’s only request for every single Holiday meal 😉
- Pumpkin Cheesecake w/ Gingersnap and Walnut Crust
Ron volunteered to make the cheesecake. It was outstanding! I think it’s my new favorite dessert!
I’m linking up with Jenn for What I Ate On Thanksgiving! Check out all the other links to get ideas for next year!
After enjoying and giving thanks we spent the rest of the evening curled up on the couch watching a little of Shrek before it was bedtime for the kiddos.
I’m thankful for my little family!
Hope you all have a great weekend! If you are crazy enough to be braving Black Friday sales, be safe!
