Not much going on. I am a little uneasy about weighing in tomorrow as I got off track a few times this week.
Today was good if I can be good the rest of the night.
One of Angel's long time friends mother passed away yesterday. A very nice lady that not only raised her kids she adopted 4 foster kids to keep them from being broke up. But like it is here with Angel only Stacie took care of her Mom.
We tried out one of those red boxes today. Just wanted to see how it worked.We can use it inbetween our netflix. Worked ok.It had to be easy because Bill did it. emoticon We watched One for the Money. Cute movie.
Not much on TV tonight. Watching NASCAR undercover boss.
Ok hope you are all doing ok.
I thought this was cute.Saw it on someone's page.

  Hi Eleni........
I will be thinking good "Light" thoughts for you tomorrow during your weigh-in. I hope it is what you want it to be.
Elizabeth went home to her parents and new baby sister this afternoon. On the way, she asked us if she could just stay for one more night. I am so glad that she likes being with us.
We aren't planning anything big for Memorial Day weekend as we are both tired and it is supposed to be 94 and humid on Sunday. Nothing shuts me down faster than high humidity combined with heat. It might turn into a movie day. Who is in One For The Money?
Have a good weekend.

Hard to hide my bad days from Bill when he is home all day. Spent most of day napping. It just happens. I call it my heart showing me who is boss and it ain't me. Feel much better now.
Tonight is Bill's mac and cheese night from Domino's. But I was good and didn't order anything. I did take one small bite of his and it is way too good but about a million calories.
Instead I had a shrimp/pasta dish I made for myself. Less calories fat etc.
Was starting to get off track with my eating so i am reining it in quick.
No pictures as Bill has been at my computer and he never looks outside.
Just got a weather alert that we have a bad storm headed this way with hail and high winds.So far it is just raining.
Ok Nothing new. Hope you had a good day.

    Good for you. I saw my dr and he suggested replacing 2 meals a day with atkins bars. So I am going to try. He says he lost 30 lbs doing that. (I have a large dr so I don't feel so bad going to him heehee)

    Oh Eleni, how great you did by stopping at just one mouthful of Bill's dish! I love good macaroni & cheese and would not have been able to stop, eek!

I hope you're having a good day today. Our weather is hot, hot, hot and we need rain!

  Hi Eleni.......
I have missed talking to you. I am VERY tired, but VERY happy with our new little girl. She looks just like Elizabeth did at that age and they both look like our son did at birth. Elizabeth is still here and we are tired but loving every minute of being with her.
I am so glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself and that you are resisting temptation and sticking to your calorie plan. Good for YOU.
We have severe storms all around us tonight. We could REALLY use the rain, but I don't want the tornadoes. I hope that your storm wasn't severe.
Take care my friend.......

    You deserve a big pat on the back for having the will power to stay out of that "Heart Attack in a Bread Bowl". I'm very proud of you and don't think I would have had that much willpower ! That's great!

If Bill plans to live a long and healthy life he would be wise to limit that kind of stuff from HIS diet also. You certainly don't want to be his nurse.

Nothing much to talk about today. Did good with calories today. Messed up late last night.
But on a good note I slept 5 hours straight. I haven't done that in years. Slept a few more hours
I have been setting my timer for 20 minutes every time I eat and try to make meal last that long.Harder than it sounds.
Made two separate meals tonight. Bill loves creamed ground meat over potatoes. Fixed that for him. I had shredded cabbage cooked in some broth and tomato sauce and threw in cooked ground turkey. Had a big supper for 400 cal.
Brianna will not be coming this week.Means more work for Bill.
Will be watching the finale of DWTS tonight.
OH Does anyone else watch the show Little Couple. I didn't set my timer right and I missed the last few minutes. Are they getting the adoption

    Glad that you got a good sleep. Late night calories can be a problem, so it's good to nip it in the bud quick.

    A big hug coming back atcha Eleni!
Your meals sound interesting and tasty! We had 6"subs tonight, I had a Veggie Delite then had a few apple slices.

Was at Curves when they opened at 6 this morning! Wow, what a great way to start my day!

I'm glad your calories are okay today and I can understand about 20 minutes to eat a meal, I'm a slow eater but still . . . would be hard to stretch it out for a set amount of time.
You'll miss Brianna this week!
I'm going off computer shortly, have another good sleep tonight Eleni!

Can not guess at calories.

Sunday, May 20, 2012

We went to pick up my glasses today.The eye place was next to Sonny's barbecue. I wanted to take Bill somewhere he hadn't been in a long time.It has been a couple of years since I was there. Well!!!! I thought I did good til I got home. I first went to calorie king and then went to Sonny's web site.They had a good nutrition list.Wow I was way off. I thought I did good. I got a pork sandwich which was not real big and did not have a lot of meat.Instead of fries I did get fried okra.But it was only about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of okra. I guessed at 800 for everything. According to their site it was 1100. Glad I got up late and only had a glass of orange juice for breakfast.
My new glasses are only a little different but more comfortable and I can see better.
Here are my old ones

new ones

Roxy had to get attention

Bill's old and then new

Here is Abigail my GGD at her party.

I even made it to grocery store today.I can't believe how much we spend on food. There are just two of us. Back in the stone age when I had 6 small kids I spent around 15.00 a week for groceries.And it is more expensive to eat healthy.
On way home we stop at 7-11 and get a fountain drink.While I was waiting on him I was looking at advertisements on windows. I am sure glad I quit smoking.The prices ranged from$3.50 a pack to $5.50 a pack. Wow I don't see how people afford to smoke.
Ok Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Looking forward to watching a new Jesse Stone movie tonight. And will tape Sister Wives.
Ok Bye for now

Bill and I were both not feeling so great this morning.We went back to bed at 10:30 and got a nap. I am fast dragging Bill down to my level

    You made me realize that it has been almost two years since I had an eye exam. Now I have something to do when I am at loose ends - new "to-do" item.

    Now don't you BOTH look so cute with those new peepers! I love them and yours are very similar to your old pair. Tell Bill his look so awesome and make him look distinguished!

Love the pics of Abigail...I don't know when I've seen a little girl that is SO very adorable. She just has the most beautiful face ever!

We taped Jessie Stone, will watch later. Back in the day...people used to say my hubs looked just like him. Actually now I think my guy is better looking than Tom Selleck...but I may be a little prejudiced do you think? emoticon

    Love both your and Bill's new glasses! Glad that you felt well enough to get out to the grocery store!
We also spend far too much on food. We eat very well. My hubby says that no matter what we spend on food it is better than eating out. We try to avoid eating out whenever we can and always avoid fast food.

    Wow, both yours and Bill's new glasses look great and really suit you. Sure changes your looks . . . how come you two keep getting younger looking?
I find our groceries are costing a lot more and we don't eat a lot either! Someone's making money!! And cigarettes? I quit back in 1990 and would never be able to smoke at the prices now! Glad I quit!

Abigail is a real sweetie and looks like a charmer!

    I do like you new glasses better and the important thing is you see better in them. Your Bill is one handsome and wonderful guy with or without glasses--LOL! I always seem to overeat when I eat out so that's one reason I rarely do even though I miss it. Your GD is cute and so precious. Enjoy your evening.
