What does Thanksgiving have to do with it, Lise? I swear I'm on a diet every day of my life... always working on those last 5 pounds .

I came out of the day almost unscathed. I had just spoken to my trainer the day before on how to approach the Thanksgiving meal, and he made some great suggestions that worked for me. 

Now, I just have to remember his tips going through all of the parties of the season, but it will be fun to try!

Have a super day!

Without doubt, the cloud of gluttonous indulgence was over my head.

However, I was also aware of the miles and miles and miles of pain to which I committed beforehand. 

My commitment was rewarded over the weekend by a pod of dolphins who swam alongside and eased the pain of miles and miles of running.
