Sweating off the stuffing

Well, not quite... but I did burn a whole lot of calories this morning at the mini spin class I took! I woke up bright and early, got my spandex on, chowed down 1/2 a clif bar and headed to the Y to meet my mom for spin. It was a 30 minute class, but she ended up going 35 minutes. I worked SO hard, and sweated SO hard, it felt great to get some real activity in before eating so much!

Speaking of food, last night I snacked on a bowl of leftover fruit while chopping chocolate and baking my bourbon pecan pie.

Here it is right out of the oven:

and I had a couple treats...
grab 1-

grab 2-

and done.
No licking the pie bowl, too many raw ingredients, but it was tempting! I also spent an hour slicing, chopping, trimming and scoring my brussels sprouts, grapes, onions, shallots, and setting up my whole kitchen for the a.m.! All while watching Top Chef- my kind of prep night!

Back to this a.m.... they had a HUGE array of thanksgiving themed breakfast foods out at the Y, so I had to snag a small sliver of cranberry bread before I left. I also grabbed a small coffee with a splash of skim milk at Starbucks to wake me up (not that spin didn't!) and now I'm about to make myself a huge healthy smoothie to get me through the morning! Have a GREAT thanksgiving guys, I'll post my days eats and indulgences later on tonight!!
