Our trip to Orlando

Monday, September 21, 2009

So far it has been a nice day. Heidi brought us sandwiches for lunch and we ate them by the pool..Bill and Scott were entertained by a very tanned long legged lady who had a fantastic build. I was impressed.If I had her body I would never wear clothes.I was bad and took some pictures of her but it wouldnít be right to show you. When we were leaving pool area I spoke to her and said she must work out a lot.She laughed and said it kept her out of trouble.I told her she looked great.She smiled and thanked me.I wish I had gotten a pic of us together..She was very nice.Well just took a nap and need to get ready to go to Heidiís house.I did a video of them in pool and will do one with me in Landons room.Will wait til I get home to post them.I have done very good with eating today.We are going to Red Lobster tonight.
We went to Heidi's house first and made a video with Landon and then went to Red Lobster. My good intentions did not last long. Again Landon was a very good baby. By the time we got back to hotel I was exhausted.We both went to bed at 9.The hotel had the best beds and windows were sound proof and we never heard any of the many planes that flew over.

We met at Denny's after we checked out for breakfast and to say goodbye. This was where I messed up my food calories for the day.I thought I had done ok but when we got home I looked up Denny's on web.They give nutrition info for all meals. My so called not bad meal was 1100 calories.I almost fell out of my chair when I saw it.
But except for eating it was a wonderful weekend. It will take me a few days to get rested up and I may never get caught up with Spark.
I am glad to be home. Altho my eating was over every day I did not have a gain.Talk about miracles. But I am getting back in line today. I will get my streak going again. Now it is 35 to 4. And that 4 will stay for a long time as I will not go over for another long time.
Ok I have another video to down load but I will make it a seperate blog.Here are some misc pics I took. This third one is to show how far I was when I took the pic.
The owner of this store feeds this bird.He wasn't afraid of people.
This guy also wasn't afraid of people
Ok that brings me to today which is a beautiful sunny day. I am extremely tired but it was worth it.Now I have to try and get caught up with spark.

    Its sounds like you had a lovely time with family and that is what is important now. Let the food go and begin anew right now. I have heard that Denny's is really bad nutritionally and calorically in their choices. What you see is not what you get. What kind of bird is that white one?

    I didn't know that was how you view the blogs so they don't all play at once. Look at you!! You could work in technical support. I always go and pause all the other ones.

Landon is such a cutie! I'm glad you and Bill had a wonderful visit!

Saturday in Orlando

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Good morning to all. We made it to Orlando around 5 pm yesterday. Since I didnít sleep well the night before I was wiped out. The room is very nice and the best beds ever. I am writing this in my room and then I will go down stairs to connect hopefully.
We met Heidi and family at TGIFís which has a great small portion meals. I didnít worry about Food Demon so he won big time .I had some very good moments like when we stopped at rest area and I stayed far away from snack machines and at TGIFís. But the Crystal cream do nut and the room service night snack were not so good. But what was really good was our grandson Landon. He was such a good baby. Even when he started getting tired he was good. I held him and whispered in his ear and sang softly to him and he just totally relaxed and didnít move. He was so cute.They are coming here and going in pool with him and I will take some pics. I will also try to get a video. Bill says the pool is awesome. I wish I had brought something to wear in it. But I donít have a bathing suit In my pool I just wear shorts and a top.
I will try to catch up on emails and comments when I get home. Heidi is bring sandwiches for lunch and we are going to Red Lobster for supper. Bill just went out and picked up some tomatoes,cucumber and yogurt for me so there will be no night room service.
Ok I will check in later maybe

    Sounds like your having a wonderful weekend with your family and especially with your grandson.

I've not eaten at TCIF's before so nice to hear they have small portions. Nice of Bill to do some shopping for you. I'm sure that will help on taming the Food Demon.

I hope you continue to have a wonderful weekend. I'll be waiting for some new photos.

God bless,

    Sounds like you're having a great time. Landon loves his Grandma Eleni. emoticon

I LOVE Red Lobster but haven't been to one in 6 years or so. Enjoy and don't worry about the Food Demon. You've made some good choices (staying out of the vending machines) so it's all good. You'll get back on track when you get home.

Looking forward to seeing pictures! Take care!!

    Glad you're having this lovely weekend.
Since it's not something you do regularily you shouldn't feel guilty at all. You of course want to be somewhat mindful and not throw all caution to the wind.
Just make sure that as soon as you step foot back home, it's back to business as usual.
What great progress you have made. Now you KNOW that you can do this.
All the best.

    Glad to hear you are having a great time. Sounds like you and Landon are bonding. If you brought shorts and a top go in the pool. I am sure no one will care.
Good idea for Bill to get you some treats. Red Lobster has some good choices. Just make a pact with yourself that you will only have one (1) cheddar biscuit. But allow yourself the one. Just eat it slowly.
Your goal for this weekend is to enjoy yourself. emoticon Carol

Quick Hello

Friday, September 18, 2009

Am in a hurry as I have to get packed for our weekend trip.Since I am not sure if I will be able to get on here over the weekend I wanted to at least touch base today.
I did beat the food demon yesterday It is now 35 to 1.
But I have made a decision to not track my food for the next two days I started freaking out about it so bad last night I didn't get to sleep til almost 5am.I will not do that to myself.I will pick up on Sunday. The next two days will not be counted in my total numbers. Unless I just decide to give the Food Demon credit.I just know I will not let food ruin my short weekend.
Gotta go get busy.If I can get everything packed up I might get a short nap in.

    I think that's a good attitude to have. Don't stress about it! You've already changed your way of eating and I'm sure you'll be just fine. I hope you have a wonderful trip!!

    I think you are wise to let it go. Just have a great time with visiting and make the best choices you can. And don't give credit to the food demon in any case. Call a truce for this weekend. emoticon

    Hi Eleni
I'm back.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I'm sure that even if you're not tracking, you'll be mindful of what you're eating and won't sabotage your success.
All the best.

    Can you pack your food for the next two days?

That is what I did back when I went on the trip with sis in law. Then I tracked it here for those 2 days. But I also was able to take my lap top and log on just before I went to bed. So I was able to add on any extras.

If nothing else take a small note book and log it on there and then to the computer when you get home.

Good luck and hope you have a fun time.

Safe travels,

Food Demon finally won one

Thursday, September 17, 2009

34 1
It was a strange night last night.I was good when I went to bed but couldn't fall asleep.Then I got that "feeling" that mothers get sometimes.Something was wrong and I could feel it.( Never got a phone call so whatever it was they handled it) I got up and before I knew it I was raiding fridge. But that's ok. I am not starting over.I am just picking up where I left off and continuing. I am too proud of my 34 day streak to just toss it aside.. 34 to 1 is pretty good. I am also very aware that this weekend is going to be very hard. But I refuse to stress out and ruin it by freaking out about a streak. I never get to go anywhere and I want to be able to enjoy the weekend. I will have my small scale and my calorie list.I have requested a fridge so I can have stuff like yogurt etc so I don't head to vending machine.I am trying to plan as best I can. I will have a bunch of tomatoes handy also.We are going to a grocery store when we get there. So I will just do the best I can.
So far it is a little cloudy outside.We had some heavy rain last night.
Well I need to start making my list so I don't forget anything tomorrow.We will leave after Bill bowls tomorrow. I do not know if I will be able to get to a laptop that works so I may not be able to blog.I am going to try to do a video with Landon.
Ok have a good day.

    You are doing absolutely awesome Eleni. You have a great attitude about it. As I always say it had to happen sometime. Now you don't have to worry about when it will. Keep the scorecard going just as you are. You are stronger because of all the days you have on record. Don't start over just keep going. I pray you have a wonderful trip. Will look forward to hearing about it when you get back. emoticon

    A video with Landon sounds like a great idea!!!! I'm sure he's gotten big.

It's OK that the Food Demon attacked last night. Today is a new day. You're doing great!!!! You should be so proud of yourself! A little slip up here and there won't hurt you. You know you can do it and will pick yourself up and continue on. Don't fret about your trip! It sounds like you have a plan and you'll do great!

Enjoy your time with your family!!

    That's one cute little food demon. He still hasn't won when you can just pick yourself up and move on without sliding into an ongoing eating binge. Cathy
