Hi everyone! It's time to lay out your fat pants because things are going to get real starting Thursday. I don't even want to talk about my "cute" second chin that visits this time of year right now. I'm feeling super depressed about my belly so I'm trying to make these last weeks of 2014 fly by so I can officially get back on track. I am trying to keep the winter fat storing to a minimum so I am counting calories today through Wednesday. I'm just hoping I can resist everything until then. Obviously, Thanksgiving is going to be a day in which I defy all logic and show my family that I truly have no stopping point if I put my mind to it. I will try to regain composure on Friday but it seems likely I will have pie or something. Saturday is the Iron Bowl and to imagine counting calories that day is just absurd. I'm so nervous about the game. Last year was a total disaster and we HAVE to win. The picture above is of me and my Dad at the homecoming game last weekend. So, I have no recipes. I have only a request of prayer and positive thoughts that I see you all on the other side of this weekend alive and well and still able to fit into my stretchy jeans. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how thankful I am for my family, friends, job and health! Roll Tide and love to all!
