but I did it! At lunch, I made myself a sandwich and put some baked Cheetos with it. Before I ate all of the Cheetos, I was full. The odd thing...the part that I didn't think was possible...I didn't finish off the Cheetos anyway!! I actually put them back in the bag! Weird, I know! LOL!
I grew up a faithful member of the "Clean Plate Club" and I was very good at it. It's only recently that I have started learning that just cos it's there, doesn't mean I have to eat it.
Amazing, huh? Of course, at dinner I reinstated my good-standing in the club! LOL! Small victories...baby steps. I'm getting there!

Busy Saturday for me. Work out, took the dog for shots, started laundry, finished my book, Pampered Chef party, shuttled kids to and from friends and watched my game (Boise State did some whoopin' on U of Idaho!). The best part is...I got a nap in too!!! Yippee for me!
Off to make dinner and scan some photos. Later taters!

revolving around shopping and GF eating/woes! My MIL is in town and that seems to be the only two things she wants to talk to me about. Every time she is here, she has "gotten into" some gluten somewhere and feels terrible. I feel for her, I really do. It's when she projects her symptoms onto my son (who is feeling fine!) that I get irritated. He can look at gluten and be okay. Apparently, she can't.
Okay...enough griping. Saw the nutritionist. The doc who referred me put in his notes that he (the doc) placed my son on a GF diet. Um...no...he's been on one for two years. Because of the miscommunication, the nutritionist prepared differently than she would have if she had realized he was properly diagnosed. The good thing is that she was able to adjust and I got some ideas on how to make my son feel better. I'm going to keep my own timeline, just in case we need it.
All right. My son is bugging me for the computer. Better finish up so he can play! Nite all!

No...they're not related. They are just the things on my mind.
Yesterday I logged onto Spark People to say hi to all my friends and what did I find? A site under construction! I understand that the wonderful folks who run this site need time to maintain, update, etc. the site. I just wish they would give us notice beforehand. I had a streak of logging fitness minutes, food and spinning the wheel every day for OVER a YEAR!! That is now gone. Oh well...I started a new streak today! LOL!
Tomorrow I am meeting with a nutritionist to discuss my son and his need for a gluten-free diet. We've been doing this for about two years, but it will be good to talk to an expert. My son's stomach has been hurting off and on. Maybe we have not eliminated all of the gluten. The nutritionist can maybe help point out some areas I've missed. Wish me luck!

go to the gym to beat something up and get my aggressions out? In a perfect world, I would be kicking somethings butt right now. But, I do not live in a perfect world. I left work a full hour late because I was spending time in the office of the boss' boss answering questions. Luckily I knew the anwers and I'm not in trouble. Just answering questions ain't fun! LOL!
Came home and DH decided that spaghetti didn't sound good, so we had Chinese. Yummy Chinese, but not healthy Chinese. So...I compromised. I ate, but did not overdose on sugar. And, I am getting up in the morning to workout. I figure if I say it enough and tell enough people, I will actually do it! LOL! Mornings and I do not get along. LOL!
With in-laws coming in two days and late days scheduled all week, I'll need to keep my focus to eat healthy and exercise. Wish me luck!
