I hope all my American friends enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!

We have already had a wonderful dinner and are enjoying a quiet afternoon before we further stuff our faces at about 3, with dessert. It is just us today; we will be visiting family for Christmas this year (and which, in truth, we do almost every year).

For my husband and I, it is the first day in the past 60 days when we have not strictly counted our calories. (I have lost 9 pounds, and he has lost 10.) I plan to estimate the calories so as to not lose my 60 day streak in MyFitnessPal, but I’m not particularly watching them today.

We will put up our Christmas tree sometime over the weekend, but we will not be hitting the shops. Neither one of us are Black Friday fans, but we have been known to participate in Cyber Monday. And I think I’ll probably get some writing done.

If you have a long weekend this week, what are you up to?
