Thanksgiving Day is a (fun!) "Free Day"

I wrote this Thanksgiving 2004... 2005 was pretty similar (although perhaps a bit more sane and no intestinal issues) and leaves me with only a summary comment: Eating is fun!

Good thing I have my promises to keep me in check for the long haul.


Thanksgiving Day is one of a few "free days" built into my 2500 promise. (All of my other promises still apply since they didn't have any exceptions.) It was fun eating all kinds of junk (fried bologna sandwich, frozen pizza, two Hardee's biscuits, lots of yummy cake) plus a nice large Thanksgiving meal too. (Thanks Liz and Carol!) I started the day off with a midnight Wendy's run (classic double with cheese and a (fried) chicken sandwich) and then pretty much ate most of the next 24 hours -- with only slight intestinal distress today.

The obvious: I am still a glutton at heart -- I bet I ate 4 times the calories I normally do in a day these days.

Christmas is the next one... should be fun. Good thing I don't have too many of these!
