My day started with a good workout-it was deadlift day! :)

I did a few sets of power cleans first, then 3X5 deadlifts. My last set was 180lbs for 7 reps(as many reps as I could get with good form). Then I supersetted weighted situps and lying leg curls(my first time using a machine in over a year, and I will never do it again!). Then I did my Thanksgiving WOD(11/24): 11 burpees and 24 double unders, 5 rounds.

I came home and watched some of the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade(I grew up watching this every single year with my dad!), then baked my famous pumpkin chocolate chip cookies(sorry, no healthy version here!) while listening to Christmas music. I just love this time of year! :)

Then it was off to my grandma's house to EAT!
My yummy Thanksgiving meal! I had a little of everything, plus another plate of dessert!

Oh, how I love Thanksgiving, if only for the reason that it's an excuse to stuff myself! And, of course, I love to see my family. I'm so thankful to have a family to spend the holidays with and for food on the table. I really miss my dad on holidays, but it does make me appreciate the family that I do have here even more.
Happy Thanksgiving!
Be thankful, not just today, but every day.
