Thanksgiving 2011

Happy Black Friday!  Is everyone out shopping?  Or finally home after an all nighter?

Like I said yesterday, I don’t have the personality for Black Friday, I’m more of a cyber Monday girl.  I am excited for everyone else though.  My Facebook newsfeed was blowing up with talk about everyone heading out to start their shopping.  Of course, I’m just now reading them and they were posted 7 hours ago, while I was snuggled into bed SLEEPING!

Yesterday’s Workout

I started Thanksgiving day with a workout!  I did 20 minutes on the elliptical with the incline set at 20 and the resistance at 10.  Then I did:

3 sets of:

  • flat bench
  • triceps: french press
  • lat pull downs
  • bicep curls with dumb bells
  • stationary lunge with lateral shoulder raise
  • stationary lunge with front shoulder raise
  • step ups

Then I hopped back on the elliptical for another 20 minutes with the incline and resistance set the same as above.

Yesterday’s Meals

Meal #1: I was so hot after working out, a cold, thick, chocolate protein powder, banana, strawberry, almond milk smoothie sounded perfect!

As soon as we got home, it was time to get our Thanksgiving meal finished up for our house!

My Mom, Stepdad, brother, sister and her husband came over and we feasted once again!

We were exhausted by the end of the night.  It was such a fun day! 

I am now realizing, after looking through the pictures, that I had everything to fix a salad and totally forgot to put it out!

My brother, James (the tallest one in above picture), told us that he has decided to compete in a bodybuilding competition in 2012! I am so excited for him.  We will both be doing the same show in April!

I hope everyone had a great day yesterday full of family and friends and lots of love and laughter!

  1. Such exciting news! It's awesome that you & your brother will be doing the same show! That will be an incredible memory!! So happy for you :)

  2. I am so excited for that James will be doing that competition with you :) Also, how much motivation is that for you to get your butt into gear now for it? Sounds like your food has been good and you've gotten your motivation for exercise back too! :)

    I love your outfit and your hair!

    How is the lady between Justin's mom and him?

  3. Vann, the lady between Janet and Justin is Janet's friend, Sheryl. She joined us for dinner!

  4. Looks like such a great time Stacy! Are you doing the Liberty show?
    Enjoy the weekend!

  5. Hi Matreena! Yes, I am planning to do the Liberty show as well as WBFF!

  6. How fun, you and your brother competing together? That's great!!!! I had NO intention of shopping. My best friend and her sisters go every year. They head out around 10 or 11 and don't get home until close to 8 am. NO THANK YOU! I prefer to sleep as well. There will be sales non stop anyways. I don't need crowds or crazy people in my life ;)

  7. hahahah now i'm just super hungry :)
