We had a very nice Thanksgiving here at the pleasantly poor house. My poor husband had to work all weekend, so he didn’t enjoy it as much as the rest of us, but I tried to make sure that he had food waiting for him every night when he got home. He had to be at work at noon on Thanksgiving Day, so I made a huge breakfast Thursday morning. We had eggs, bacon, sausage, and biscuits and gravy. A breakfast worthy of Thanksgiving. Lunch was pretty small, just myself, my son, and my parents. But it was a great meal, and it was wonderful spending time with family.
I didn’t do much in the way of exercising this week, and I definitely didn’t watch my food intake. But I started the new week off with some excellent progress. I walked on the treadmill for twenty minutes last night and tonight, and I even managed to eat pretty well. This morning I had a banana for breakfast, took an apple and yogurt to work for a snack, had a cup of noodles for lunch and left over turkey soup for dinner. I feel pretty good about myself tonight, I really hope that I can keep the momentum.
I also organized my pantry this weekend. It wasn’t a planned chore, but my mom took me to Sam’s and bought out the store, so my choices were to organize the pantry, or leave the groceries stacked all over the counter. I took almost everything out, threw away the stuff that was old or empty, and put everything back in so that it could be found easily. My mom and I also made a trip to Target and bought some containers to keep things like sugar and floor in rather than leaving them in the bags. This not only makes the the pantry look better, but it protects the product from bugs. Win-win.
