Happy Thanksgiving! :)

slept in, it was nice.. it rained this morning so we stayed in bed longer 'cause we could

I'm thinking that I'm gonna' drop some of my shifts at the gym so I can get better sleep. I was thinking that it was helping me with my training 'cause I was getting in a lot of the pushups, etc. in-between things there early in the day... but I was also not getting enough sleep over time. The lack of sleep has affected my training and the rest of my life, so I don't think it's worth it. I've tried various ways of making it work, but nothing really has. We'll see if cutting back on my shifts is enough to make it work, otherwise I might have to quit completely. Too bad, 'cause I like that job, like the people and all...

lunch: lotsa bananas
dinner: hodge-podge of stuff at Thanksgiving living food potluck, probably too many ingredients to list, heh, oh well, it's once a year

Here are some pictures (click 'em to enlarge):

Raw Food Thanksgivings of recent past...

Someone asked me on Facebook about what my Thanksgiving menu looks like these days and I looked up the pics and posts about my past Thanksgivings to answer...

I also created a new blogging label for "holiday food" for those of you who search for things that way. Here are the Thanksgivings so far:

breakfast: the rest of the melon we got Wed. (see video)
brunch: equivalent of 12 or 13 bananas (was more, but eating around bad spots and all)
