Thanksgiving Eve and WIAW

November 23, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving Eve and WIAW!!!

I woke up with the worst headache in the world. I’ve been so busy baking and getting ready for the weekend that I didn’t drink enough water yesterday and am super dehydrated.

 Today I’ll be super conscious about staying hydrated since tomorrow’s the big race! I say race but I don’t care about my time or being competitive. Last year I was passed by a man with prosthetic legs, so I knew I was a beginner.

Since we’re eating what we have left my meals were more protein and carb based. I used most of our fruit in the muffins and we have no more veggies.


After BodyPump yesterday morning I really wanted a huge protein shake so I doubled my serving and drank it out of a big Ball jar. Fancy huh?

Chocolate Protein Drink

I also had one of each muffin and was super full. I don’t think I’ll double the protein again, it was too much and I felt bloated for a couple of hours. *Please excuse the coffee table mess, it has since been cleaned.


I didn’t get hungry again until after 1:30p and I didn’t crave anything. I was out running errands and almost grabbed a Lean Cuisine from the freezer in CVS but I had left my wallet in my car so I figured it wasn’t meant to be.

When I was walking to my car I realized Trader Joe’s was right next door and went there instead. I was so glad that happened because I found this gem.

TJ's Mexican Pizza

This was only $1.99 versus the $4 I would have spent on a Lean Cusisine. It didn’t look quite like the box, but it was super delicious anyway.

I <3 TJ's

I enjoyed my little pizza as my last lunch at a cube, FOREVER!!!! I think that added to the flavor;)


Between the pizza and the shake I wasn’t too hungry the rest of the day, but I did snack on another muffin while I baked the Thanksgiving pies. Once Travis got home I made myself a bowl of cereal with some blueberries.

Fiber one, Kashi crunch, and blueberries

I know it’s not the most amazing dinner, but I’d been cooking for 2 days straight and needed a break. Cereal for dinner is great sometimes, it’s easy and good.

 I finish my last work day at noon then I’m off to have lunch with Travis before we pick up our race packets and check out the expo. Then the rest of the day will be spent relaxing and updating my playlists on my shuffle. I will also make sure it’s fully charged. Last year I got to the start and it hadn’t charged so I was without music for the entire 13.1 miles. It sucked for sure!

How are you spending your Thanksgiving Eve?

I’m happy to hear that little pizza was good. I just bought one recently but haven’t tried it yet. Happy WIAW

Whoa – that pizza looks NOTHING like the box. Glad it was good though! I love TJs.

Good luck tomorrow! I hope I get to see you. :)

Trader Joe’s seriously has the best options for frozen meals and they are all so inexpensive! I have never had the Mexican Pizza, but it looks delicious! I am going to look for it next time I shop :)
