So another thanksgiving has come and gone. Hubby made a fantastic Smoked turkey again this year. It was even better than the one he made last year. I also made a oven roasted turkey for those who don't like smoked... but we sure had a lot less smoked turkey left overs than we had roasted turkey left overs. I've got the bones and carcasses on the stove right now, making a big pot of stock. Yum.

It was good thanksgiving on the family front too. We had my brother and sister in law here, along with my mother and father in law. Historically, I haven't always seen eye to eye with my MIL, but this year was better than ever... while we may never be the best of buds, we sure are getting along a lot better, and I think we are actually enjoying each other's company, rather than feeling forced into niceness.

Running continues. While I took Thursday and Friday off, I did run six miles on Wednesday, and I intend to run at least five tomorrow. I really do want to run that half marathon in february, but even more importantly, I really, really want to look good when we go to Hawaii in June 08. I've got 7 months.... to go from a 12 to 6. I've got to get there... I just can't imagine the idea of week of sun and fun in Hawaii on cruise ship, in the current shape I'm in. Right now, I can't imagine going out in public in bathing suit. While I don't think I'm going to look perfect as a size 6, well, I'm so far from that now that comparatively, a size 6 would be fantastic! But the only way I'm going to get there is to keep doing what I'm doing... running and watching what I eat. So. time to pick it up again, first thing in the morning. In the meantime.... I am trying to resist the cheesecake, calling my name from the fridge.

Remember, most cruise ships have great work out rooms complete with every type of equipment you can imagine. Most ships also have outdoor tracks for runners. It’s great running on top of the ship with nothing but water around you.

Oh, I know.... but that's not going to help me reach the goal before I get there!

I can just imagine what it's going to be like, running with that kind of view in front mf me.... wow!
