Wonderful Wednesday - uhhh, maybe not?!

So I'm trying to keep my attitude in check but the day is already wearing on me. Things have been really busy at work and at home. They are installing carpet in my money pit of a house today so EVERYTHING is upside down. Let me just say that getting up and having to dig for clothes/shoes to go to work in was not my idea of a fun way to start the day! I just keep reminding myself that it will all be worth it in the end!

Hmmmm, on to bigger and better Thanksgiving!! Have I mentioned that it is my favorite holiday of the year??? I love Thanksgiving and the time with my family. This year we are actually spending Thanksgiving with my family - it will be a first as we normally are with the in-laws but they decided to go camping this year. That is when I said - NO - not spending Thanksgiving eating spam out of a can in a freaking tent - NO WAY!!! So we compromised and now I get to spend my birthday eating spam out of a can (my b-day is the day after Thanksgiving this year)......guess I'll survive it and chalk it up to the way my birthday usually ends up. You know I love my husband and he is great but he doesn't care about birthdays. He will ask me a thousand times what I want to do but I don't want to have to plan my birthday.......hell I have to plan everyone elses so why can't someone plan mine??? Again, there are far worse things that could happen so I should stop complaining.

On the food front - I'm trying to stick to more frequent, smaller meals and I'm doing okay I guess?? Actually today I feel like I've gained 10 pounds and I'm convinced that my clothes are too tight but I'm trying to remember that this bloat caused by the hormones that the doc has been pumping me full of. If I'm not careful I'm gonna end up like one of Bo Pilgrims fat yellow chickens!

I'm off to finish up my plan of attack for Thanksgiving - I have a ton to cook and I have to make sure that I'm prepared to eat usual method has been to take 3 bites of everything that I want - you only remember the first and last bite anyway - the second bite is so I can feel like I'm cheating a bit! That really worked well for me last few years so I may stick with that theory......the problem is desserts - I LOVE pumpkin cheesecake and can never get out of making one - it's really hard to pour that much of yourself into a dessert and not eat it!

All right girls - gotta run. Have a great rest of the week.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday too. I love spending time with my family and it's about the only holiday I get to do that. The food is a plus. :)

P.S. I'll try to get some belly shots up maybe this weekend for you. :)

Mmmmm, cheeesecaaake!
Good luck with that one. Check out the Pumpking Angel Cake I posted on Cndn Thanksgiving thanks to Carolyn (1box fat free angel food cake, 1can pumpkin mix, 1C water, mix but not too much and cook as per pkg - yum and no one will know it's from a box). This is a safe alternative and filled that pumpkin craving for me.

I'm trying to remember that I'm NOT cooking for an entire village and I shouldn't make EVERYTHING for Thanksgiving.

I know what you mean about hubby not wanting to make plans or worse saying he is going to make plans and then he doesn't...oh wait, thats MY Ken LOL. I'll be spending your birthday fighting the crowds and shopping. Just think, you can go hiking and work off the pumpkin cheesecake!

You're SO fussy- refusing to eat spam out of a can for Thanksgiving... you are so persnickety!!! :)

Amanda said...

I wanted to add one more thing about your birthday....

Why is it that men ask us what we want to do then WE have to plan it? I had to make the reservations for the place I wanted to go to dinner at AND arrange for the sitter. Just ONCE I would like for him to do it. Just once. Maybe my DH and your DH need to take a class together. :)

Ohhhh c'mon Steph I cant believe you are passing up spam out of a can for Thanksgiving turkey.

Mmmmmm pumpkin cheesecake sounds sinfully delicious. I think I better stick to the WW's crustless pumpkin pie. :)

Have a great week and weekend.
