I took the above picture as I was preparing our Thanksgiving noon meal today. I bought the Pilgrim statues years ago at a garage sale. Arranged with candles, artificial leaves, squash and apples, it makes one of my favorite holiday centerpieces. My immediate family (minus my oldest daughter who lives out east and will be home for Christmas) will be gathering with my extended family later this evening at my Aunt’s house to catch up on the happenings of everyone.
I started a new Thanksgiving tradition for myself early this morning. I ran a 4 mile run, appropriately named the “Galloping Gobbler”, with my oldest son. Three of my children, at various times, have run in this race for several Thanksgivings now, and it has been my goal for a long time to be able to join them someday.
Well, today was that someday.
Words are inadequate to express how wonderful it feels to have health back.
It was a tough course with hills that I hadn’t trained for, but wanted to give it a shot anyway. As I was approaching the finish line, and the bystanders were cheering, it felt so good to be able to stretch out my legs and run. Two years ago, when I was obese, I couldn’t even jog to catch a fly away ball in our backyard.
If you are sitting on the fence of indecision, I encourage you to give nutritarian eating your all.
To be free from food addiction and get health back is something you will never regret.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
