Nopals anyone

Sunday, August 29, 2010

The weekend goes by so fast.
Got up late and went walking at 8:30am. It was hot so I only walked 3 miles. Then we went to Harlingen to eat lunch El Rancho. I had Egg Whites, Nopals no oil. and beans. It was so good. This time they added chiles, cilantro, tomatoes to the nopals. My husband said it was Nopals Americans. Some of you may ask what are nopals Cactus with no spines thank you. It is a miracle food. It lower diabetes, high blood pressure and much more. They are very slimy but here in South Texas I can find them already cut and fresh so they are not so slimy. My husband likes them with chorizo or Mexican Sausage.

Then to Lane Bryant to get bras for my daughter. She is size 42 B it is hard to find that size but we found them there. In the bras there are little water bags what are those. If anyone can tell me.

Home for a nap. What a great day.

    I think the cactus must be lonely, they have no pals because they just rub everyone the wrong way!

I am always glad to learn something new.

    I had no breakfast, left home around 8:00 for church got out of church around 1:00, went to a Mexican restaurant for a buffet. Ate way too much. Did have fruit ad veggies though and too much meat though as I don't get full without meat. Tonight will have left overs at home.
I like nopales but not egg whites. I want the whole egg and they aren't so bad for you after all they say. Oh well, who knows.
Will have a left over tonight, very light.
Good for you for eatig well. emoticon

Friday Football

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Friday was such a fun day at work. We got a new computer lab manager and he was one of my co-workers from my old school. I am so happy to see him, but even more happy to get our computer lab going. I went to my middle school principal's for chalupas the off to the football game. I do not like football. I go to watch the band and talk with my sister-in-law. I have had the same seat for 24 years next to the same people. So anyway two ladies come with there 4 kids. The youngest a boy about 2 is sitting behind me and kicking me, bumping me and crawling on me. The mother was so embarrassed. Not me !!! I am used to it. I did not mind. I think the game is a family time. My kids did it when they were little. The boy was not being mean he was just playing. Anyway toward the end of the game she asks me my name and I tell her. She was the daughter of a good friends of ours all grown up. I was so shocked that she remembered me and I was so glad that I was nice to her kids. God really does work in unusual ways. Angels are everywhere even in little boys at the football game.

Still on track

Friday, August 27, 2010

One week of school down. It is finally Friday and I am excited. I am finally over my sinus infection still having a bit of vertigo but I can deal with that. Last night at the TOPS meeting I had a loss and everyone in the group had a loss. After the meeting I went out to my favorite Vegan Resturant and got the green lasagna. It is not my favorite I missed the real cheese. But then I got a call from my ex-principal to meet them for drinks. So off to Chill's. Ok I had 1 margarita, some fries and some chocolate cake. I did not eat all of it just a few bits but I had fun just talking and planning for the upcoming year. I really feel happy because I am healthier this year and I feel mentally healthier. My goal is going to be to start recording my steps I usually just record the miles I walk in the morning but I want to start recording the steps I take. I hope you are looking forward to the weekend like I am.

Little old fashion skills

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

Our kids are so busy learning new things with the computers, ipads and newest game that many do not know how to sew, fix a car, saw a board or use a hammer. In school they are enudated with college. Take advance class to get them ahead in college. But in school they do not take the fun classes like shop or home ec.

Tonight my daughter brought home the band uniforms to hem. I got out the sewing machine and measured and started to sew.

She watched me and said, "Where did you learn to do this. My teacher told us to take the uniform to a seamstress, but I did have to worry I knew you have done this before." I told her I learned at school and I was in 4-H.

Now I am not a good seamstress but from years of gaining weight and losing weight I can take in clothes and let them out. But still it is nice to know in our high tech world we still need old fashion skills like sewing.

Usually I hate clothes shopping. Today was the Tax free weekend so I went Walmart at 7:30 and was able to get underwear and even some help finding the kind I wanted. Then I found some pants and a top not in the large sizes but a regular size 16 WOW.

Not many people were there and the store was clean and I was able to try on the clothes it was amazing.

On to JC Pennys to meet my husband and daughter. Got some new undergarments I did not even know what size to buy. How do you shop for bras I am glad I was there early so I was not emoticon looking at every bra and trying on so many. My daughter got pants, tops ect. At 8:00am it was great no people. I divided the bags into 75 dollarso I could get $15 off per $75 since there were no people the clerk was very helpful. Saved $55 and no tax

Then on to Harlingen Mall Sears new shoes, daughter hair cut, she went to Hot Topics for t-shirts. Lunch/breakfast eggs and nopales. Then to Mcallen Handcock fabics to get some materials for curtains for the school. Home at last to take a nap.
WoW what a day. And I usually hate to shop.

    Becky you wear me out just reading your post.
How do you shop for bras? A friend told me I needed to go be fitted for a bra after I bought a dress that had darts above the encantos. LOL
I thought i looked good but found out when you lose weight you are to buy new undergarments also. Found I was wearing a cup way too small on a too large bra.
Then when I became queen someone else told me I need to go be fit for a bra so I went again. There are people in most of the bigger stores who will help you buy a bra your size and show you how to fit it.
