Thanksgiving Eve

As you may have noticed, I did not post my calories consumed. The reason is that I lost track... I went to watch my friends bowl last night and I learned that an old friend of mine passed away two days before. He had recently had a stroke and ultimately died of a heart attack. I guess I got a "screw it" attitude and proceeded to stuff my pie hole with a chicken sandwich and fries, Wheat thins, M&Ms and a few other tidbits. I felt like crap last night - all bloated and full. I am still feeling a bit stuffed even. I am not going to let it throw me off though. Back OTK today.

I am picking up my brother at the Airport tonight. He comes in about 7:30 p.m. so I asked mom if she wanted to come along for the ride. She said she did so we will go get him and then go to Fish Market to get a bite for dinner.

Not sure if I will post over the weekend. I am in limbo with Comcast and AT&T. Right now I have both. I will be cancelling Comcast today (hopefully) and getting Internet through AT&T but their may be a lag in between.

We are going to McCormick Schmick's so I will have Salmon for dinner. Danielle will be making 4 turkeys + the spread for the bar so I can have some leftovers. I do like turkey sandwiches and would like to have a little stuffing and her raspberry jello salad. Otherwise I don't care for Thanksgiving fare. I don't even like pumpkin pie... I hope you all have a healthy, happy and safe Thanksgiving. Until next time...


  1. sorry to hear of the loss of the friend, but don't give your power away! Wishing you and yours a very happy thanksgiving!

  2. Sorry to hear about your loss. Isn't it crazy how emotions can make us eat? That's one of my biggest problems. Hope you can have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend.

    Hope you have a peaceful Thanksgiving.

  4. Sorry about your friend...

    The next SENSIBLE meal is only hours away. Reset your mind before eating, and you'll be fine, don't be afraid to "waste food", better that eating the wrong amounts.

    Good luck, Secretia.

  5. This happens to all of us so don't worry about it!

  6. My sympathies on the loss of your friend...and you know, sometime you just go with your initial gut reaction in dealing with something like that.

    Enjoy your time with your brother - Happy Thanksgiving, Katie!

  7. So sorry for your loss. That is such a difficult thing to go through and especially before the holidays. It may help to remember him on the days you are struggling to think about how precious life is and how it can be taken away so easily when we don't make healthy choices. The binge was a tiny set back. You can move forward. I imagine that is what your friend would want for you.

  8. Sorry about your friend-It is amazing how our "screw it" attitudes will now only last for a couple of hours where in the past it might have been way longer-I almost call it a success :)

  9. You don't like pumpkin pie?!?! How un-American! (kidding!) At least you don't like a food that is bad for you! Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. Hi Katie. So sorry for the death of your friend. It's totally understandable that your reaction was to say stuff it to the diet even though in some respects it's an illogical thing to do given the way such a death flags up the importance of healthy eating. But then, emotional eating isn't logical.

    Great that the situation hasn't derailed you any further.

    Hope you have a good Thanksgiving holiday with your family.

    Best wishes,
    Bearfriend xx

  11. Miss your posts! Hope you had a nice weekend!!!
