Hi there! I guess I am getting the ball rolling for today. I hope everyone had a nice Easter. Our was untraditional. I had bought a ham, but there was a pizza malfunction on Saturday and the brood all wanted pizza still on Sunday, so our Easter dinner was pizza. LOL I sliced up the ham and we had some for lunch on Monday. Scott is getting ham sandwiches for lunch and I froze the rest. We are a little different over here. :)
The brood is back to school today so I am in a cleaning frenzy. I really didn't do much while Scott was on break, so I am making up for it now. Anna's birthday is Thursday and her party will be this weekend, so anything I can do now will help. I actually won't clean too much before the party because all the kids and family will make more of a mess and they don't care about the house anyway. I cut down on the party this year - fewer guests and I am not serving a meal. We will just do cake and pop and call it done. Anna is inviting 3 friends, and 1 will spend the night. Other than that, it will just be grandparents and her aunt.
OP today after eating that extra helping of pasta yesterday. I am not nearly as hungry today, so I think I am definitely learning to pay better attention to my body's cues. Yesterday I was hungry and needed to eat more, and today I don't. You can teach an old dog new tricks! LOL
good afternoon everyone.hope you are all doing well. I am okay today still in the grab everything mood but am keeping myself at bay for the most part. I caught myself eating tidbits this morning but have since had a firm talk with myself. :)
This afternoon I will be babysitting for alittle while and then off on my walk. Tonight is jujitsu.
Need to get better at planning my meals. I havent had that great of a week and I think part of it was just not knowing what I was going to have so I would just grab anything.
well see ya later
op for me
oh, pat thanks for answering all my questions
Hi everyone, I'm finally home with Jim. He has been gone since Friday and I was gone yesterday and today. Stopped for Subway on the way home.
Last night was an interesting meal. We walked to a restaurant from the motel. Looked at the menu and almost everything said sauteed or in cream sauce and sometimes both. Decided on a shrimp cocktail (4 shrimp) and a spinach salad (small plate with maybe 25 leaves of fresh spinach about 1/2 cup of mandarin oranges and 1/4 cup walnuts.) I was satisfied when done until had to pay the outrageous bill. When I figured points the walnuts alone were 5 and the oranges were 1 or 2 since they were in syrup. Expensive in points and money.
Chelsie, I didn't remember to answer you question about shrimp and eggs. I think that the fear of cholesterol has been overblown for both of them and having them once in awhile isn't a bad thing. I eat both regularly. Of course, I take meds for my cholesterol. If you eat healthly most of the time I don't think there is anything that you can't eat.
