I believe I soundly defeated one of the worst eating days of the year. I successfully ate a spinach salad, whipped sweet potatoes, turkey and ham. I stayed away from mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cheese bread dip, cream cheese and yogurt fruit dip, rolls, stuffing and pie. My mom goes nuts when making pie. I think there were 14 pies and 2 cheese cakes. I know. Tempting. But I kept in mind the aches and pains eating wheat and dairy bring and I just said no.
Friday... same story. Friday after Thanksgiving is traditionally a gluttonous day of eating leftover. I ate salad. I ate GF bread and Marionberry jam. I did taste the inside of a fruit pie, but no leftover potatoes, stuffing, and the like for me.
I may have consumed more calories than I usually do, but I didn't come close to eating the caloric intake of family members (teehee) or that I have in the past.
So... I call it a win. One down, 35 days to go to get to the end of caloric craziness and New Years.
Oh... and Salad Days continue. I just need to get home to load the pictures of my salads so I can blog them.
