Post Wedding

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

My wedding turned out even more beautiful than I expected. I had some nervous moments, but basically all was okay!!

We are going on a honeymoon next week, but I want to track and do the blog for this week, just so I do not get out of the habit.

Of course, I have not been worrying about what I eat. The leftover wedding cake is delicious, but I want to start being more careful about eating today.

Then with the cruise, well, all bets are off.

Halfsies continued

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

Was going to do "halfsies" again. But cheated. Loaded up the half cup of berries, the half cup of cottage cheese. Caught myself cheating and so when I went to the tracker I entered .6 cup instead of .5 cup. Very proud of self.

    I need to get back to measuring cups. I eyeballed it last night and realized that my eyeballs have grown! :-)

Halfsies

Monday, May 14, 2012

I really needed a snack just now, it is 4:30, my most hungry time. I just got back from taking my 94 year old mother to the doctor, and the difficulties of managing that in a big city with all the traffic, difficult parking, elevators, all of it, well, I need a snack.

Very proud of self: starting what I am calling "halfsies"

I made a snack of: one half cup corn flakes
one half ounce walnuts
one half cup nonfat milk

187 calories; delicious and filling and comforting

    What an excellent way to stop the splurging and overeating, and at the same time -- quiet those hunger pangs! Great job Carol!

    That's a great solution to the afternoon snack problem. Healthy too! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    When I need a snack, I always go for fruit. It really does the trick.

Mothers Day

Friday, May 11, 2012

My cousin and I took our mothers out for tea yesterday!!! It was wonderful. Both ladies are in their 90's and they grew up together and had many wonderful reminisces. Their photos are in my photo gallery.

The little sandwiches, the scones, the tea were all wonderful. I had to let the tracking go yesterday!!!

    Sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate Mother's Day. I love listening to my mom retell stories about her life growing up with her brother and twin sisters. They had so much fun using their imaginations!!

Hope you have a great Mother's Day!!

Hugs,
Maryann
