Are You Gonna Eat That? A Thanksgiving Reflection

Hi! Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Hope you all had a fabulous turkey day!

I am in the midst of a post-thanksgiving revelation. Last night was a game changer for my recovery. On the ride home, Chris and I were discussing how fun dinner was and how great it was to see everyone, and how good everything tasted. I realized that none of my thoughts or comments were related to feeling too full, feeling guilty about something I ate, or how I needed to hit the gym. That feels like recovery to me. Being completely present, laughing with my family, enjoying time together and eating what I want to eat.

This year I am thankful for so much. Our family had a pretty rough year, but persevered together. I am so incredibly thankful for my strong and supportive family, the best friends in the world, a beautiful new home, a husband that supports all my wacky ideas, two enormous orange cats and my goofy puppy. I am thankful for a body that gets up and does it’s job every day and doesn’t battle with my mind anymore.

With that, here are some pictures of the silliest Thanksgiving ever, where the house was filled with puppies, the disposal broke and the turkey might have been raw!
