A Good Thanksgiving

Wow, I love Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving for me is a day for enjoying good food with good friends.

I got off work at 6pm and dinner was ready shortly after I arrived home, thanks to my wife.  When it comes to the dinner, I have to admit that we cheat.  We get the Safeway turkey dinner and then add to it.  My wife prepared a dinner that I could make fit my diet pretty well and yet it still had the traditional dishes for our guests. She even made two completely separate versions of her sweet potatoes, one for me and one for everyone else.

I did break my diet a little, I enjoyed some green bean casserole and potatoes with gravy.  All in all, I think I did well.  I had a small amount of wheat in the gravy and there is some in the mushroom soup used in the casserole.  My carb intake was a little higher that normal, but not much.  I was able to enjoy the meal and not feel deprived of anything, especially since I had made a low-carb cheesecake for dessert.

So, do I feel bad about cheating on my diet?  No, not at all, and neither should you.  Stressing over little things like that will just cause more health problems.  Do your best today and forget the rest.
