This morning I got up and went to Curves. I did my 30 minute strength training and went over to TJ Maxx which is in the same shopping center as Curves is located.

I found an adorable pair of Larry Levine slacks in navy blue and a real cute top.
I also picked up a new muffin tin since my old one is over 50 years old and gets rusty when wet. Time to get rid of it. I also picked up some extra salad size dishes, because we use that size very often. There is no need to use full size dinner plates because it looks as if you aren't getting enough food. So I will pick up salad plates so I don't have to do dishes that often and run the dishwasher.
I also bought myself new oven mitts which come up very high because I usually burn my arms when I reach into the oven.

When I got home I made my Chef Megs Mini Vegetable frittitas and had two for lunch. They are only 1 point per frittita (muffin size) and a great lunch and a protein snack when you are hungry between meals.

Tonite I am making a new recipe that I got from my Weight Watcher leader. Its a cabbage casserole which really sounds good.

We are going to now watch the Master's. A little disappointed because Tiger already golfed today.

Today, if my mother were alive would be celebrating her 103 rd birthday. I do know a women who is still living independently who is 103 years old. Yes, she does all her own cooking and still volunteers at the Jewish Home for the Aged. Someone picks her up and takes her home. Can you believe it.? She is a beautiful women who still has her hair done and puts on makeup everyday.

So today was my busy day and I loved every minute of it. I went to my weekly Weight Watchers meeting and then went to Curves to get my 30 minutes in and then off to Bible study and after that my weekly bridge game.

I had a Dr. Atkins chocolate carmel bar for 1 point, and had some cheese and crackers at my bridge game. I also ate some pineapple. I won $1.25 at bridge which paid for my Mahj game.

I had some leftover meat loaf that I froze when I made it last month and I defrosted it and my DH bought me a sweet potato and he had a bake white potato. It was very good. I had passover sponge cake with cool whip for dessert. One more piece left and its all gone. Thank goodness.

This evening I promised D my friend that I would come to the synagogue to help teach Mahj Jong to some new players. It was really fun. Our table were five players two whom were relatively new. So we took turns sitting out (since you only play with four people) and helped the newbies. By the end of the evening they were doing pretty well. I did Mahj on the last hand and won a prize. Two frames for pictures. Cute. We did not play for money, because this is really a learning experience for some of the ladies.

I came home at 9:15 p.m. and came on SP to finish up getting my points and writing down my foods, exercise etc.

tomorrow is another free day so I will sleep in and go to Curves. Maybe we can catch a movie. in the afternoon

This morning we had "Yiskor" memorial services at our synagogues. This is a service within a morning service but usually brings more people to the synagogue because it is a memorial service for departed family members and friends.

One woman came up to me and remarked how much I know look like my daughter now that I lost so much weight. I don't see it but it sure is a compliment. I had one women come up to me and said "Donna Neubauer? I recognized the voice but I didn't recognize you. OMG I hope that it was because you wanted to lose weight and no other reason. You look wonderful. I really was on a high this morning.

Because I missed Curves I didn't go until 3:00 p.m., but at least I got in my 30 minutes.

I have a meeting tonite and so we will have a salad and left overs from last night. At least I won't be home to snack.

It was a beautiful morning and warmed up again into the 70's and feeling like Spring is really here I went to Curves and got my 30 minutes in.

I came home and prepared my dinner for tonite, because we have a dear friend coming over at 4:00 p.m. to play Phase 10 Master and then stay for dinner. His wife is visiting her daughter in Boston, Ma.

I made his favorite meal, but needed to augment it a bit. It is still Passover until 8:00 p.m. tomorrow night (we are Conservative Jews, Reform Jews ended it last night) so instead of adding rice I added quinia and made it the same way. I couldn't serve rolls to sop up the juices so they had to use the potatoes.

I made a salad and had Passover sponge cake for dessert, which A... chose not to have. My dh and I had it went A... went home.

This afternoon I had a Mahj game at B....'s home and we played on the new card. I won 30 cents. Not going to the bank with that amount, but I had fun playing new hands. I played a closed hand and mahj'ed on it. It paid 30 cent and 60 cents. The person who threw my Mahj tile had to pay 60 cents the others paid 30 cents. If I had picked my own tile everyone would have had to pay 60 cents.

I have been on the computer for most of the night catching up on e-mails and sparkpoint while my dh is watching the Butler basketball game.

I will continue to read "Wild Swans' and hope to finish it this week.
