Time For My Refeed!!!

Whew!  I have to say that I feel like I completely “stuffed” myself silly today and hardly could even call it that by how I used to celebrate this food fest day!

It’s amazing that since I’ve been in my training phase with eating and workouts; my body has completely acclimated to eating specific amounts of food every 2-3 hours.  It was somewhat strange to not really have any real cravings to feed off of today.  My trainer sent me a message and told me that I could enjoy my day today and “refeed” (which is just a fancy word for “cheat meal”) with any foods that I chose!  Funny how I really wasn’t all that excited about it…

I pushed through with my workout today anyway and prepared the turkey and set the table and readied for the feast.  I decided I’d allow myself only what I really wanted to eat.  I mean, if I’m going to go off my program; I should at least only choose the foods I really enjoy.  What did I choose?  Yams.  

Sweet, buttery, sugary yams.  Of course, some turkey and green beans (NOT the casserole!), salad and a roll and a half with some butter.  I also took time today to prepare my butternut squash soup and I really enjoyed eating that.  It was quite simple to prepare and yummy!  I will definitely be making that again soon!

We took a family walk after the meal and it felt wonderful.  Although, I didn’t think I overate; my belly was not happy with me for the rest of the evening.  For dessert, I had a glass of black decaf coffee (what’s the point, right? LOL) and some baked apples.  

That’s all folks!

I have to say that although my tummy is dissatisfied with my refeed meal today; I feel wonderful to know that my current program is not leaving me feeling deprived in any way.  If I feel the least bit deprivation, I will make up for it big time when I can.  Today proved that I didn’t need to.  

Tomorrow, I get to sleep in!!  Imagine that!  NO, I am not going shopping at midnight or 4 in the morning.  Not interested.  Sleep is too precious these days and I need all the rest and repairs that I can get these days!   I hope that you enjoyed your day with family and friends, and that this is the beginning of a healthier and happier holiday season than past years.  Who needs to make a huge New Year’s resolution to get into shape when you start following a reasonable plan before December 31st?
