Headed to a friend's for dinner today. She was once married to my brother, many years ago, has been remarried for more than 25 years but I still think of her as my sister in law. She's making lasagna for dinner, my Mom's recipe. I love it but never make it. The only time I have it is when my sister in law makes it. MMMMM My plan is to watch portions today, enjoy but don't go crazy.
Tomorrow, Sunday, is my official restart day. Back to the food journal, calorie counting, fiber counting. I'm making a big pot of veg soup tomorrow. Lots of leftovers for the coming week. Sounds just as yummy as today's lasagna !

I did pretty good over Christmas. Didn't overeat for Christmas dinner, watched portions, enjoyed the goodies but limited them. Wasn't able to fit in exercise the last two days, too busy with cooking and company. Today is a rest day, I'm exhausted, I'll get back to my regular exercise tomorrow.
We had a nice quiet Christmas, just four of us, hubby, my Mom and my best friend. We do Christmas a little different. We're all on fixed incomes with limited funds for gift giving so we do a dollar store Christmas - we each buy 10 one dollar gifts for each other. They can be anything, useful, goofy, whatever. We toss wrapping paper all over as we open our gifts, and anything wearable we have to put on. (my hubby ended up wearing reindeer antlers, a chicken visor, a knit hat and unmatched socks!) It's a lot of fun. Takes us forever to open all the gifts. Lots and lots of laughing ! The rest of the day we sit and talk, watch videos, have dinner. All in all a very pleasant day.
