Feels like forever since being here! I really miss my Spark community and the way we support each other!
Anyway, just popped by to say hi!
The weekend went well. On Saturday we went to our son's unit and celebrated his 30th birthday and a house warming. He cooked chicken and sausages on his new gas webber barbecue that his friends had bought for him.
We brought the salad and desert.
Am proud to say that I practised healthy eating and had chicken and salad. The tiniest taste of the desert and a small glass of wine!
So then challenge number 2 was on Sunday when my brother in law came to cook lunch! His daughter was visiting from interstate during her Uni break and my MIL came as well as our son and his girlfriend.
Entrée was garlic prawns and I was asked to cook them!
Burnt the first lot of garlic as I had it simmering, and left the kitchen to show my niece where the toilet was!
So prepare more garlic and start again, all good and the entrée was enjoyed by all!
My brother in law cooked a whole fish on the Webber and it was very moist and tasty.
Once again I kept to the green salad and avoided the salads that had a lot of creamy dressing on them.
I am certainly feeling more confident about lots of food and lots of people and how I manage my eating.
Before Sparkpeople I would see the whole event as a food fest and over eat and then be cross with myself for over eating.
Now I see the event as a chance for conversation and relaxing and the eating is for the hunger!
On both days I managed to go for 5 km walks with Sooty. I am so proud of him as he keeps up with me! I managed to finish in 50 minutes on the Saturday which is a good pace considering 2 1/2 years ago it took me 70minutes!
So back to work and it is humpday today!
I have a student with me till the end of next week, and am enjoying the company and demonstrating our role out in the community. The days are busy and we have fun.
Time is still a big issue with me and how to prioritise my life! Would love to have more time to exercise during the week! I so miss it!
Just might have to start the Sparkpeople videos again as they seemed to fit into my life a bit easier then getting to the gym!
Well I had better go back to bed and try and get some more sleep!
It is 4.20 am here and I have been awake since 2.30
Good ole menopause!
Don't you just love being a woman!
Will try and catch up with everyone's blogs in the next few days! I do think about you all every day! Hope you are all living the healthy life!
