It has been a nice day.The weather was great until about an hour ago.We had a nasty rain thunder lighting storm pass over.It isn't completely over yet.
Bill has almost finished the butterfly garden and walkway. It just has 2 more blocks on walkway and it will be done.I tried to talk him into one more row but it didn't work. I will be getting 2 more plants but haven't found the ones I want. I do want another red one for sure. I think he did a great job.It was my plan but he did all the work
We had pasta and sauce for supper. I rarely have pasta just because of calories. But this time I fixed some fresh squash,cauliflower and carrots.Then added about 1 cup of some frozen veggies. Then I just used 1 cup of cooked pasta with 1 cup of pasta sauce and had a huge pan for around 450 calories. As most of you that know me know I like volume. It was really good. I have started using more frozen veggies verses canned. I always have fresh veggies too. So I had a big supper and have more than enough calories left over for later.
I was still tired today so I didn't do my regular exercises. I did go in the pool and walk around some and swam 5 laps.
I got the picnic invites printed out and Bill will get them mailed tomorrow. He needs to get a box of envelopes the right size.
We watched Avatar last night and it was good.A little strange. I could see why it would make someone sick to watch it in 3D.
Oops The rain is back. We always need rain here.
Well I hope you all had a good weekend. I did have a 2# gain but I am having fluid again so I am not worried about the 2#.It will be gone plus more next week.
Ok I did awful last night.I was good til around 10 pm and then it was disaster. Like another sparkers said it stinks to binge when you don't even have good stuff to binge on. I must have a stomach of iron as I had salmon and then peanut butter sandwich and then I don't remember what. But it will not happen tonight. So stupid. We all do it and we all have no answer as to why we do it.Or rather most of us do. But I have done good so far and have seafood soup planned for supper.
As I was in produce dept I hear someone saying .There is my Grandma.It was my grandson Benjamin.I had Bill take a pic with his phone.Not very good of me but I rarely take a good picture. He didn't care who saw him hugging me. Bill said when he found him he got some big hugs too. His mother is expecting and he wants a baby brother.
And while I am showing grandsons.Here is a picture of my sister Joanne and her first great grandson.He is a cutey.
I did get some exercises done this morning. I have only missed 2 days this month.
Here is pic of the butterfly garden and the walkway and rocks Bill is putting down.He isn't finished.When he gets done I can go around all the plants in my walker.
And some pretty blooms
Ok i am getting hungry so I need to get started on my supper. It's every man for himself so I am making the stinky seafood I like.
Hope you all have a great weekend. We got a couple of dvd's to watch.One is Avatar. I don't know if Bill will like that one.The other is a Hugh Grant comedy.
I have been taking it easy today.Haven't felt good but that happens.Most of you know when I have a bad day I take extra nap times.
I am very lucky to have a hubby that just goes with the flow.I called and told him that supper was his.So he brought home Subway which is good.
I am back on track with eating.Only had 2 days that I went over. I was under last night and am in good shape tonight. Did not feel like exercising this morning but I did go in pool for a couple laps and just did 16 minutes of zookinesis after supper.
The new plants I bought a few weeks ago are starting to take off and are getting more blooms.And the rose bush that almost died is doing good on back patio since we repotted it. Bill has about half of stones down in back and extended the walk way he made for me. He should get that finished this weekend. We still have some more repotting to do.2 of my butterfly plants from last year must go into bigger containers plus the plants he bought me out front need to go into bigger pots. Doesn't take long when we do it together.
I have to make up the invites for our spring picnic.We have one every year in May. I hate picnics but everyone else seems to like it. I am turning it over to the kids to plan next year.
Well Hope you all had a good day
I don't think I showed this plant.It is one of the cacti plants and it has tiny little flowers on it.
There is nothing like a nice quiet day.I have been in a resting and do nothing much day. Wait a minute. That's a normal day for me.
I went way over on my eating last night but back on track today.Supper is over and I have plenty of calories left to snack later. I even did a few exercises this morning.
I ate my first tomato from my small plant.
And Bill's plant is bursting with blooms
My weight did jump up but It is not from how much I ate but what I ate. It will be back down in a day or two.
It has been a nice warm day here and more to come.
Not much happening.Angel is doing well.
Bill is getting back to walking.He walked around our subdivision tonight.
Well I am going to go sit with him and watch some TV. Have a wonderful day and great day tomorrow.
Angel came home today and is ready to get healthy. They came for supper and she looks and sounds good.She knows what she has to do and will be seeing a councilor once a week for awhile. I made her a cheeseburger etc that she was wanting. It was a killer on my calories but I counted them all. lets just say I am over my calories now with none for later. But I will still have something later. It is so unfair that the really good stuff has to have so many calories. Yes I know The low calorie stuff taste good too. But even tho I went over I didn't just pile my plate up.Bill brought home baked beans and potato salad. I measured and knowing how huge the calories were I only ate a small amount but boy they were high in calories. All leftovers went home with them.Even the chips and feta cheese which I had to pry out of my hands. The only thing I kept was a small baggie of chips for Bill and hamburger buns as he likes to toast them. So I have no temptations left.
Now I can relax a little. Thanks again for all the good vibes sent our way.She and I both appreciate it. It has helped me to stay strong.
Ok I have to get the dvds set up.
Oh I sent off for a couple of the Simmons tape I use everyday as the tape almost broke.The one I got from Amazon came yesterday and had a bonus dvd.I just checked the dvd today and somehow they managed to make a copy of the vcr tape.That was great. I thought that was nice of them.
Ok I'm going to go for today.
I am going to relax and watch biggest loser in a while and tape my other stuff.
Hopefully I can rest before the next crisis hits.
Thank you again to all of you.
