Thanks for cheesy pop music on the drive to my parents' house.
Thanks for calories not counting on or around Thanksgiving day.
Thanks for [an awesome] family.
Thanks. Thanks, a lot.

This morning I hit the stationary bike for a 45-minute ramp interval ride, followed by a 10-minute walk with L. I took the rest of my Wednesday easy (I am on holiday, after all), although I did fit in a 30-minute walk with L before dinner with the folks.
Breakfast was a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Post Great Grains Raisins, Dates, & Pecans cereal, 1/2 Honeycrip apple, cinnamon, and almond milk.
Lunch was a peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich on wheat with a side of purple grapes.
My afternoon snack has a sliced apple (not sure what kind, I took it from my parents' fridge) dusted with cinnamon and Sargento string cheese.
I spent the afternoon baking for Thanksgiving (classic pumpkin pie, oatmeal-pecan pie, and salted fudge brownies). I had a small bite of brownie (had to taste test, obviously) and have no idea how I restrained from consuming the entire plate. These brownies are the.best.i.have.ever.had.i.want.to.smear.them.all.over.my.face.and.live.inside.one.forever.
Dinner was a bowl of hearty meat and bean chili made by dad, cornbread, and steamed broccoli.
Dessert was animal crackers and a few mixed nuts.
