I was soooo good this morning - now we'll see how the evening goes.
I ate some cantaloupe then treadmilled for 45 minutes. Can't remember what else I did before my hair appointment, but came home and painted my fingernails. After lunch we volunteered in our grandson's 4th gr class (will again tomorrow) and then I sewed a little. I've barely started Katie's sun dress, but really need to get on the stick and get it done. I tend to procrastinate, I'm afraid.
After dinner I went for a walk in my neighborhood - only about 15 mins, but a walk just the same. Up and down the slight hills I live in.
So, after I treadmilled, I ate a slice of whole wheat toast w/peanut butter and preserves. For lunch, I had a slice of leftover pizza, an apple and a fiber bar. Supper (my DH is such a good cook) was a grilled skinless chicken breast and lots of (mixed) veggies, along w/a sweet potato. So far, so good. Now is the worst time for me - after dinner. I tend to nibble or gorge. I have plans to not do that tonight, although I will have a 60 calorie cup of mousse my dau gave me.
Have a restful night, y'all.

Well, I started the day right - had 1/2 a grapefruit and a sip of coffee before using the treadmill. It's cold (relatively speaking) with a stiff breeze (almost wind), and it keeps spitting rain at us. Brrrr. After the treadmill I ate a bowl of Cherrios and had a glass of juice.
I cut out one piece of my granddaughter's dress, and am catching up on SP. In awhile I'll be taking one of my grandson's to a baseball scrimmage - the other (6 yrs) went to his scrimmage w/Grandpa already.
I cook on the weekends (my DH has weekday KP) so when Josh (10 yrs) and I get home, I'll be starting that. I'm planning on mac and cheese - the boys love it - w/some meat in it. Veggies, etc on the side.
Tomorrow we stay after church to count the offering, then home again for hamburgers (call Grandma a chicken about getting a big meal on the table). I think we'll have pizzas for supper - I'll have a bit, plus a big salad.
Yes, we have the boys for the weekend - Mom and Dad are in Philadelphia to celebrate their anniversary. I'm glad we're available to help out like this - I'm a firm believer that parents NEED to get away for a couple of days every now and then.
Too bad the weather isn't better - I know the boys would love to be outside more. Oh well, can't have it all all the time! LOL
Y'all have a great weekend. Attend the worship center of your choice and remember that God takes pleasure in us.

I walked a bit on my treadmill on Sunday (30 min), then yesterday I thoroughly enjoyed my 40 min walk - I walked every street in the subdivision. Just now I finished 50 minutes on the treadmill, going varying speeds in hopes of 'tricking' my muscles. So far this week, so good. Now if I can only get myself to strength training. (sigh) I know I SHOULD, but am having trouble finding the "just get up off yer keester and DO it!" It's raining today, or I would have walked outside again. While walking on the treadmill gives me the accurate figures of speed and incline, walking outdoors is more interesting.
This morning my DH has been enjoying his monthly 'breakfast w/the guys' (they are all retired from his old office). I'm glad he has that outlet.
I anticipate spending a quiet day today. Yesterday we joined the kindergarteners for "Kid Writing" and will do so again tomorrow. They are so delightful, and it's been nice to see the growth in them over the course of the school year. One painfully shy boy has come out of his shell quite a bit, and now voices what he wants to write, instead of our having to think up something for him. He's still a bit shy, but just not quite so much.
Nothing particularly earth-shaking to comment on; just wanted to touch base w/y'all. Have a great day.

Even tho' a front came thru last eve and today's high did NOT reach the predicted 60 degrees, AND the sun was mostly hidden by clouds, AND the wind was blowing, my walking buddy and I took our 30 minute walk around her neighborhood. The wind (especially) made it feel cold, but we kept w/it and both are glad we made the effort.
We have our grandsons tonight and will have the boys until tomorrow eve as well. Their Mom is going to enjoy a ladies' retreat weekend, and their Dad has to work tomorrow, so have the pleasure of keeping the boys. I am glad we're available to help out.
Have a restful night and a wonderful weekend, yall.
