Comfort Food to the Max

My husband and I have been having a blast during our Thanksgiving break! We have been spending a lot of time with family, which is just what I need right now. Not to mention, we have been eating comfort food to the max. I don't know how I did it, but I have lost another pound this week; even after eating plateful after plateful of our traditional Thanksgiving feast! My body must be getting itself back to "normal".

Our traditional Thanksgiving plate (thanks mom for the leftovers!)
I was really excited to try a super easy pumpkin muffin recipe for Thanksgiving this year. I made about 6 dozen muffins. Each batch is made with only two ingredients; a box of spice cake mix and a can of 100% real pumpkin. I used about 4 boxes of spice cake to make the quantity of muffins I thought we needed for Thanksgiving break. My husband is really enjoying the leftovers for breakfast in the morning and I love sharing our muffins with friends and family!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I am ready to start eating healthy again. I woke up early this morning and made myself an omelet. I call it the veggie explosion. I guess I got a little carried away with the amount of veggies 2 egg whites and 1 egg could hold.

This afternoon, we have one more Thanksgiving feast to attend. I don't think that I will be indulging in much, if anything. While the comfort food was great this past week, my body is really ready for the healthy stuff to come back! Tonight, we are suppose to go out to the bar to celebrate my husband's mom and step-dad's birthdays. They are providing the first two drinks for their guests. I don't think I will have any more than that, if that, at all. Ever since my miscarriage, I feel differently about a lot of things. I don't really want to drink much pop, or alcohol, or anything else that's unnecessary. I want to eat and drink clean fresh things. I want my body to be ready for the next time we get pregnant.


  1. I'm glad you're taking care of yourself :)

  2. Keep up with the healthy choices and the exercise and Im sure when you both decide to try to have kids again your body will be ready! Hugs! I would start taking prenatal vitamins as well to prepare your body even if its over a year away... just sayin'. Sorry for your loss...Im sure you would have been an awesome mom and will be someday!
