The Last Supper Painting & Portion Control

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Heard an interesting item on the radio today. Some historian has studied paintings throughout the ages of The Last Supper and found that, as they were painted throughout history, the food portions painted on the plates increased over time. Speaks for itself.

Guess we're not the only society and culture with a love of food and eating. (smiling)

Wishing all a great Wednesday.

    Jesse - I've got to applaude your honesty! I didn't even think about the points you get for posting a blog. Maybe I need to step it up a little. Hopefully when my laptop is fixed!

Sunday, March 21, 2010

Molly is precious andher babies are ready to hatch. For those of us who do not have the benefit of life in the countryside to experience things like this, it's absolutely thrilling. Also, threads from all over the country. Very cool.

Walk Went Great

Saturday, March 20, 2010

We walked extra miles, and faster than usual, so it was a great event for me and my friend.
Tomorrow I am driving a senior buddy to lunch. She wants to go to Red Lobster. This is the second weekend in a row I'll have been there. Uhoh!

    Well, no wonder you knew about the entrees there! I must say, it didn't really seem to effect my weight. My small gain was more likely due to TOM arriving.

Hurrah for a great walk!

    You can do this! You can enjoy Red Lobster with your friend AND be sensible about food choices.

One thing I do is absolutely avoid the mundane. Ordinary rice, routine roll, applesauce, you get the idea. If it's a special occasion, eat something special. I just have to not eat EVERYTHING special.

Walk sounds great! Have a lovely Sunday . . .

    Careful planning and good choices will keep you on track! I just ate there on Friday and the food was really good. And I didn't need any dessert! Have a great Sunday!

Tomorrow's Organized Walk for Charity - The Pros and Cons

Friday, March 19, 2010

I'm ready for a beautiful, sunny walk at one of San Diego's pretty venues. It's a non-profit fundraiser, and the total is only about four miles. So, nothing but fun. However, I just heard on the radio that they are expecting 10,000 spring breakers there for one of their drinking events and have lifted the alcohol ban for the day. Oh, won't that be special? Drunks, packed parking, and all the behaviors that go with it. Will hope for the best and look on the bright side.
