Happy Holidays

I think I can officially say Happy Holidays to everyone now, no matter what you practice. I hope everyone had a good Turkey day and felt good about what they ate. We had the neighbors over for Turkey and a potluck style meal. Had a good time and taught them a new card game (hand and foot). We had a nice walk both today and yesterday, but got rained on last night. Not too bad overall though.
It's interesting, I've never figured out why men have an easier time walking (at least my husband does) then I do. This doesn't matter whether I'm pregnant or not, it's been bothering me for years. I walk 6 days a week with the dog in the morning, and the last year and a half or so we've added in walking in the evening every night. John only joins me on Sat. when we do a longer walk of 4 miles, and in the evenings. Evening walks are slower and more stops because we're with a group. So, supposedly I should be more in shape then he is right? But I always have trouble keeping up when we walk together. When he takes vacation time and walks everyday with me, his feet hurt and previously his back has bothered him, but he can still out pace me without getting winded. What's up with that? Just seems weird to me, and sometimes rather annoying.

Men's physiology is so different and so annoying! John can loose weight just by not eating lunch - I would kill the kids by dinner if I did that.

We had a nice Turkey day with John's sister and took the kids to a movie with friends today. Turning into a relaxing weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving. Truly even with illness it wasn't a bad day. I have been tired and while not sick like the kids I did actually lose weight this Thanksgiving. So here is to hoping that I don't gain it all back as everyone gets better.

Happy Thanksgiving!

My dad is just like your husband. He can be a couch potato for months on end and then go for hike and leave me in the dust.

I try to remember to focus on what I tell my boys. Instead of comparing yourself with others, you need to challenge yourself.
