Wednesday I could hardly get the motivation to train. I was trying to come up with every excuse in the world to not train and to maneuver my training days to be off Tuesday night. Well, I took Monday as a day off....I only get 2 days off a week. If I took Wednesday off that would mean I would have to train Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday....4 days in a row, which I am not suppose to train more than 3 in a row. So it was 11pm when I found myself training. I took the easy way out Day 2 and did only 2 sets of each exercise versus 3 sets of each exercise. I did that for 2 reasons, 1) I was training at the gym at 11pm at night ALONE and people can see straight into the gym and see me train. That creeps me out. Quick side story....I had this kinda scary looking guy approach me in the grocery store. He kept staring at me and he seemed to be following me from aisle to aisle. He stopped me in the water aisle and politely said, hey....you are the girl that trains like hell at night at the gym. I smiled and said, yeah that is me and walked away. Now I get creeped out at night training at the gym. 2) The other reason I trained lightly was because I was still feeling huge muscle soreness from the leg workout the previous day. I was hurting!!!!
Thursday was Thanksgiving and I did take that day off to eat laugh and be happy with the family. Tradition is to spend the holidays at my moms house so I popped the turkey in the oven at 0800 and by 1pm we were in the car driving 1 hour to my moms house. Hubby drove as my 15 year old and I acted like kids in the back seat taking pictures on her iPod.
When we got to my moms we were greeted by my sis and my nieces and nephews who traveled from Kentucky.
In this pic is me, my daughter, my sis, and my her son Kevin....my nephew.
Then I went to see my two nieces to give them a hug and to take pictures of course.
My sis kids Kandace and Karri-Lynn
These are the guys..... My sis's ex Karry in the grey and my ex Rick in the peach....lol. The ex's never leave the family.....they will always be family.

Then my daughter and her fiancé show up with my precious grand baby Karmen.
And of course, Kathy, King, and me are sportin' our 49ers jerseys
Then my daughter Jessica shows up with my grandson Cameron. Her hubby had to work unfortunately.
So we had family all throughout the house having a good time...

And let me give you the low down of what I ate.....
My first plate was filled with BBQ Ribs, ham, turkey, dressing, cabbage slaw, sweet potatoes and mash potatoes. I ate it all
My second plate was filled with some more ribs, a roll, some fruit salad, more sweet potatoes and dressing.
A few hours later I had banana cream pie.
And the entire time I sipped on alot of wine.....lol. And let me tell you this, I ate it GUILT FREE and the food tasted better than ever because I was not worried about my diet!!! My hubby drove home and I laid down in the back seat with quite the tummy ache and mild wine hangover....lol.
I awoke this morning ready to train hard. I went to the gym and trained my butt off and then ate some junk. Tonite I am babysitting my granddaughter for the first time all night. She is 7 months old and this is the first time she is sleeping apart from her parents.
Tomorrow, I will be celebrating Thanksgiving all over again with my in-laws!! WOOHOO!!!!!!
