Day 190

Tuesday, December 25, 2007


Xmas Eve

Went to the hotel and had a wonderful time, definitely ate too much but did get a lot of fruits and veggies in and lots of dates, as well as a soak in the hot-tub and their fitness room was great too. So not too bad and had a nice day and a wonderful break. This is what the mountains looked like on the way over, it was such a beautiful day.

    Great pics! It was very cloudy here last night but I managed to catch a glimpse of the full moon during a break in the clouds. Very beautiful, the full "cold" moon.

Day 189

Full Moon

Had a relaxing day, and went for a nice walk this afternoon with my dogs. Also made some fudge, which was not on my agenda, oops. It was low fat and way too good. DH wanted fudge and I could not find any so I made it. Yikes! I did buy healthy snacks including more dates, nuts, and mandarin oranges though. Off to the hotel tomorrow overnight and taking my healthy snacks along. Anyhow its just 2 days then will be back on maintenance mode with a vengeance I imagine after this!!

Day 188

Seattle Construction Site

Well weighed in about the SAME! Scale was a little flakey (surprise surprise) but settled at 135.7 yay. I need to do some exercise today though it has stopped POURING but I am feeling cold. Strength should warm me up though. I am craving dates for some reason, well before the Holidays. They are not low in calories I am going to look up the benefits though! I got a Xmas Cake from WholeFoods and homemade Xmas pudding for Xmas Day too. The lady who makes them is from UK and they are delicious. So I am having a couple of low calorie days here in preparation! But I am usually fine now with one slice of cake as my snack every day. I am looking forward to Xmas now just have to wrap everything up and will be good to go. Oh yes and cook dinner on Xmas Day! I am really looking forward to the Hotel and short break!!

Well dates are very good for me, and my anemia. So I will continue to eat them and not feel bad about it, they have so many nutrients too! They used to use them to treat dizziness and I was feeling dizzy and now I am not, I am sure due to anemia. Very interesting!

Dates were one of the first fruits to be cultivated by man, they were a popular fruit in ancient Roman and Greek times and remains of the date palm have even been found in Stone Age man excavation sites. The date is the fruit of the date palms which grow in sub-tropical and desert areas throughout North Africa, the Middle East, Australia and California. Dates can be eaten raw, cook or dried.

Dates are packed with nutrients and are a good source of dietary fibre which can help constipation and aid good bowel health. The high iron content within dates makes them an excellent food to eat if you are suffering from anaemia or if you have heart problems.

    My dad used to take a walnut or pecan and roll it up inside a date - instant candy! I love that for a snack.

    I love dates -- my dad used to put them in the middle of baked apples. That sounds so good -- I might have to fix one of those up!

sounds like you are getting ready for a nice Christmas! I hope you have a great one, Anna!!!

Day 187

Friday, December 21, 2007


Sunrise yesterday.

Had a fun trip to Seattle but ate too much (trail mix and today dates) but had healthy food and had salad both yesterday and today for dinner. I will have to weigh in tomorrow and see where I am at though. Yikes! PMS on the way too so will not be too surprised to be up tomorrow and will try and have a good weekend as am not going to worry too much Monday and Tuesday. I will just eat 1300 calories the rest of the week, and got a lot of salad for turkey salad and sandwiches! Wish me luck!

    I wonder what 1300 cookies would look like? I imagine that many would fill a good sized room! Yum!

    I want to visit Seattle someday. I think I'd love it there! When I first read your blog today I thought you said you were going to eat 1300 cookies (instead of calories) and I was like OMG! Now I see you are not eating so many cookies, lol. Good luck!
