Attempting to Offset the Dreaded Holiday Weight Gain

For the past several years, we partake in 2 separate Thanksgiving.  The traditional Thanksgiving served on Thursday with the Mo's family and then the Saturday Thanksgiving at my mom's house with the Srey Clan in Connecticut.  This doesn't include other "stops" we make at our friends house for additional food and desserts or the annual Thanksgiving Potluck at the office.

With the holidays are around the corner, there has been numerous emails going back and forth between both my family and the Mo's family in regard to the Thanksgiving Day Menu. Between both menu's there a large assortment of sweets, cheesy dishes, carbs, slow roasted meats and a void of fresh vegetables that isn't loaded with butter or cheese.

In an attempt to not gain any additional weight between now and New Year's Eve, I've set small goals for myself, starting this weekend.

  1. No Carbs in the Evening!!
  2. Limit Alcohol Intake to only 1 night per a week (So no more, "Wine down Wednesday" &"Thirsty Thursdays" 
  3. Exercise at least 30 mins each day.
We will see what happens!! I'll keep you posted on my progress or failures! 
Here is what I have been making this week for dinner.
