I got through Thanksgiving with flying colors.
I ran 3 miles yesterday morning at 8. It was a beautiful run and set the tone for the day.
I also talked to 3 OA members in the morning, which was yet another tool to keep me committed.
I wasn't stressed prepping the rest of the food. I had no problems choosing foods that were not triggers. The only time I had an issue was when the pies started being served. But I went to my bedroom and closed the door and watched TV for 45 minutes while everyone else had dessert, and I was just fine.
I had decaf coffee and that was dessert for me.
I did no clean up--I told Mark that since I did everything to get things ready, he was in charge of clean up (he had help from other family members, too). That helped a lot because it kept me away from the food after my meal was finished, and it also helped keep me from being exhausted or resentful
I weighed the same today as I weighed yesterday. THAT is a success!!
This morning I met up with Kate & Travis and ran 3.5 miles. It was my fastest 3 miles yet this year (I did sprints alternated with walking the last .5 miles). I feel calm & happy & thrilled that food has no hold on me today.
Family just arrived for lunch, and I am feeling OK about it.
And Vickie, the cranberry sauce was the best & I got several compliments on it.
