How was Thanksgiving?

Here was the menu: Turkey, ham, brisket, cornbread stuffing, white bread stuffing, rice, corn pudding, rolls, macaroni and cheese, green beans with ham, collard greens with ham, sweet potatoes (no marshmellows), cranberry sauce, gravy, juice, coke, sweet tea.

I had 2 slices of turkey with cranberry sauce, cornbread stuffing, both green veg x2, sweet potatoes, and water. It was a triumph of self control!

Bill's uncle is a minister so there were desserts from his congregation on every free surface and under the tables. I had one piece of pineapple coconut cake. It was yummy, and I felt great at the end. Whew! When we got back home, I did some yoga and went for a swim, and I haven't gained any weight. :) Now to survive Christmas....

The food sounds yummy, and you had a great plan! Are you still contin points while pregnant?

I've been a bit AWOL with my eating - too busy so not planning and then not eating well. Thinking I need to focus on nutrition more and calories less...

BTW, Billy Blanks' dd Shelly had a baby and has put put a Ttaebo Postnatal workout, if you are interested!
