We got back from our trip to North Dakota on Sunday around 5pm. The drive took a little over 7 hours, including a stop for lunch. Juliet rocked the drive and was a complete sweetheart the entire way. She slept 3 hours and the rest of the time was reading books, playing with toys and happy. That was a relief because being on a road-trip with an unhappy child can be really stressful.
Thanksgiving and the entire weekend was great. We had a lot of amazing food (my mother-in-law Karen is an awesome cook), good family time and a lot of relaxing. It was exactly what I needed after a long and stressful past month at work. The cold I’ve been fighting for weeks finally began to subside.
Despite how wonderful the food was, I am so ready to be back to eating healthy and counting points on Weight Watchers. I haven’t been tracking for about a month now and instead of avoiding the notion of dieting like I usually do over the holidays I am ready to embrace it.
I’ve put together a recipe round-up of the lighter recipes on Eat Drink Pretty:
Not pictured but here are some additional great, healthy recipes:
I hope you all enjoyed your long weekend. Are all the leftovers gone and are you ready for some lighter meals this week? If you have any favorite, healthy recipes please comment and share. I need ideas!
