Easy Wednesday - Thanksgiving-

Still doing good this week and following the plan.  2 easy miles and 20 minutes on the bike.  Gym was empty, people are gone for Thanksgiving and I love it!!!  Turns out they are open tomorrow! No kids gym though.  I get to run outside because dear husband will be home cooking the turkey!!!  Thanksgiving does not mean much to me as far as tradition goes since I spent 30 yrs of my life in Canada where we don't celebrate Thanksgiving.  Of course I understand the meaning of it and I want my kids to grow up with all the American traditions since we live here and well they are Americans!  So we are doing the turkey and all the good stuff that I cannot eat!  My father in law is coming and one of my dear friend who is Scottish, is also coming with her 2 sons! So we will have a American-Canadian-Scottish Thanksgiving !

So Happy Thanksgiving to all of you reading this!
