Thanksgiving weekend

Welcome to Monday!  Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend... besides having to go in to work on Friday, mine was awesome.

Wednesday night Anthony and I got busy making dessert for Thanksgiving day.  Running around to the different grocery stores trying to find frozen pie crust was my workout for the day!  The last store we checked had TONS of a name brand frozen pie crusts and I'm guessing they had more than they knew what to do with cause they were on sale for $1.25 each!  If they weren't so unhealthy for you, I probably would have bought 20 of them.

Who says a girl from Hawaii can't make a super yummy sweet potato pie?! Recipe coming soon.

Thanksgiving morning started out with an early lower body session at the gym and apparently everyone on the island was there trying to burn some calories before the feasting began.  The gym was packed! 

On a side note, as I was leaving the gym, I found out they were holding a Crossfit boot camp for trainer clients only... and I was pissed because my trainer never told me about it!  I've been super interested in Crossfit and I'm wondering if my trainer purposely didn't tell me because he might lose a client.  I need to talk to him when I see him tomorrow.

Anyway, on to the Thanksgiving feasting.  Lunch was spent with Anthony's family and every year they have pizza and homemade Chinese food.  Sorry no picts... I was too busy stuffing my face! I totally look forward to the pizza with them every year.

Dinner was spent with my dad, brother and Anthony and we went out to a steakhouse. 

I passed on the bread but helped myself to fried calamari (one of the best I've had in a long time) and enjoyed every bite of my 9 oz. filet mignon.  And see the steamed asparagus?  That was my one healthy eat for the day.

Missed out on the Black Friday madness because I had to go into work this morning.  I was able to leave around lunch time so I hit up the gym to do my killer upper-body session.

Took it really easy because my left knee has been really sore.  It's been bothering me off and on for the last several months but I think my lower-body session on Thursday somehow tweaked it.  Usually a lower-body session makes my knee feel much better, but it felt wonky after I tried to set a new personal record on the leg press.

So we went walking around Waikiki and stopped for lunch at one of the hotels.  Seared ahi with mixed veggies and cauliflower garlic "rice".  So yummy and way less starchy/carby than mashed potatoes.

Woke up at 8:30 but wasn't feeling it... so back to bed I went and didn't get up till after 12.  It felt awesome.  Did my normal Sunday routine (grocery shopping for the week, cooking for the week, and house cleaning) and spent the night with Anthony, watching The Next Iron Chef and The Walking Dead midseason finale... OMG!!!!

Now that is a color of sweet potato pie we don't see very often!
