I have been putting this off all day. I have good ,bad and ugly to talk about.
I will start with some good and end with some good.
The sun is shining and it hasn't been too cold.And the birds are singing like crazy. I woke up to them singing in the front of the house and they have been singing out here in the back yard all day. I have a good healthy supper planned. Bill picked up 2 half inch pieces of turkey breast yesterday and I am going to grill a bunch of fresh veggies in oven.
Now to the bad. I did not beat the food demon last night
The Ugly- I was doing fantastic until 10 pm and then from then til 1 am no food was safe.Even stuff I wasn't crazy about. I know some of you never do this. But I also know that many of you do.And like me you question why you do such asinine things to yourself. Sometimes I think it is just plain stupidity. Except I am not stupid.SO I have made my confession.
It really stinks tho as I did awesome eating at Olive Garden. I researched it and the comments by the other sparkers helped me pick a good menu. I found once again the the waitress's etc are very happy to change things. I always try to ask very nicely. I wrote down everything before I left the house and had it with me.I even took my own salad dressing which was only 25 cal. I got the salad with no olives and no dressing. Then I got the minestrone soup which had to have much more calories than it said . But I only ate half of stuff in it and the broth. The comment that I read suggested asking for a side of veggies. There are no side listed so I asked.She told me they had broccoli or a yellow /green squash mix.I got the squash.When it came it looked to be no more than a cup.It was nicely grilled.I cut it up added it to my linguine marinara. I even left part of the linguine. I did have 3 small pieces of sausage off Bill's plate.I even asked for 1 plain bread stick. So I did wonderful eating out. I made sure Bill gave her a good tip for being so helpful.
While we were talking Bill mentioned he might like one of the WII games. So I suggested we go after we eat. I said I wanted to look at external DVD players for my small laptop or netbook. He said he would get it for my birthday if I wanted. Sounded good to me. So off to Walmart we go. I bought him the WII game which he just now was looking at and it isn't what he thought so he will take it back and get something else. I didn't get an external DVD. Instead I got a DVD player.I charged it up and tried it today.It is nice. When I was in back room exercising Bill found a DVD that was in cabinet and put it in to see how player worked. Surprises do happen. It was a DVD that I taped several Sit & Be Fit programs last year. I never could get the DVD to work. It now works. Go figure. So I now have some extra exercise sessions of hers. If I had know that stupid thing would work I never would have bought the extra DVD of hers. I now have plenty of different tapes. I just got the other Sit and Tone tape. I may get one more and then that is more than enough.
Did not buy anything else there and we were in and out quickly. I did try on one bra but it didn't fit and the overhang was awful.Wasn't in mood to be frustrated.I hate trying to find a bra.It is worse than bathing suits.
I ordered a new medic alert bracelet. Mine needed to be replaced.It is getting too big and it is irritating my arm.It is suppose to be sterling silver but I have my doubts.
Well I better go start prepping dinner. I have to cut up cauliflower and broccoli etc. Hope you all had a good weekend
