This looks all too familiar:
23. Drink more wine.
24. Remember that you were going to start counting Weight Watchers points again today.
25. Write down “wine: 10.”
26. Understand that it will likely be more like “wine: 30” by the time this is all over.
@Kira-Lynn@twitter I asked (at least a version) of this question, and I'm really stoked that she answered. I have been struggling to find this weird balance between being a vegetarian, being a runner, and also trying to lose a few pounds. It's just my own personal situation, and I'm grateful that she answered it. I didn't mean to upset anyone... I just am trying to figure out my own stuff and got excited when I saw that they were letting us ask questions of a dietitian.
You answered my question!!! Thank you!!!
Also, good stuff about the eggs. I have high cholesterol despite not eating many high-cholesterol foods, and I was bummed to think I was going to have to eat fewer eggs (I already don't have eggs that often.) I love this series!
@emsiela One thing I had to realized is that, at least for me, marriage isn't like the movies. Some days, I like him. Other days, not so much. As long as you like him more than you don't like him, I think you're doing okay.
He and I came from different socio-economic backgrounds, which has led to a little friction when it comes to money, but we've only been married 2 years and I think we both still have some learning to do. Different political beliefs might be harder, though I guess I'm not sure. I get really political at times, and I appreciate that my husband is, for the most part, in agreement with me. But if you have different political beliefs and have made it 4 years, then I don't think it's that big of a deal?
I have no idea if I've said anything helpful. Sorry.
@adorable-eggplant Mainly Farm Sanctuary and the local Humane Society because I love the animals, and Planned Parenthood because, well, because. And now, even though this isn't a charitable thing but I am way too jazzed about it... the Wendy Davis campaign.
Yup. This seems about right.
So my actual Thanksgiving will be spent with friends, and I am really looking forward to it. Food! Wine! Laughter! Hooray!
My weekend, however, will be spent at the in-law's. It is safe to say I am not looking forward to it even a little bit. And I made a joke to the hubs that I would need to take plenty of wine and I think that hurt his feelings, so now I have to keep my misery and boredom to myself. And, you know, to you guys! Anyone else dreading the family time?
@kristenpdx Everyone has left... except my boss, and therefore me. Blergh.
@granny squares Paula Deen's squash casserole, Alton Brown's garlic mashed potatoes, some plain old roasted Brussels sprouts, and some pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting.
Oh my god I can't wait for tomorrow.
Bravo, San Francisco.
