I'm back after the Picnic!

Sunday, August 03, 2008

It was a good gathering. Nice to see some old friends that I only get to see when Tami and her kids come to town. It was fun watching all the little kids interact with each other.

Well, I was chosen to be the salmon grill master and since I was the only one that knew the recipe I was happy to do it. It turned out awesome! All the food was very good and I only took a serving of what I really wanted and only went a little bit above my goal for the day. All in all I am happy with how I handled myself.

  Hi: Glad you had a nice gathering. It is fun to be with people and have a good time. You did well for yourself. It sounded like fun to be the salmon grill master and you did a great job. Be proud of yourself.
Good to know the kids interacted nicely and is always fun to see children play. Have a good day. Keep the good work going. emoticon

I'm no scientist!

My head is spinning. I made two dishes to take to a Tami reunion picnic this evening. My sister asked me what the serving size was and the Caloric value. I checked all the ingredients on this site, then measured how many cups each one contained. Believe me that was no small feat for me. I entered those into my favorites list.

I guess the whole purpose of this exercise was that I can still have my comfort foods in moderation. If mother was still alive she would have taken the palm of her hand and hit me in the forehead with it and said "Did't I preach that to you when you were growing up?"! I didn't listen then but hopefully I have learned it today.

I'm Still Here!

I'm still here and tracking my food. I didn't get breakfast but that's okay. We had to baby sit Silas today. He still wears me out but I expect that from a 2 yr old. We brought Silas home for lunch. We both had a good meal. Which is really strange for Silas. But he didn't get any junk food either. Wonder why! Only joking. All in all it was a very good day.

  


I think I have the SPARK!

This is my 8th day at sparks.com and the first day that I really felt like saying anything in my blog. Yesterday was the first day I actually tracked my food and water intake. This morning was the first day that I actually went out for a walk! Admitedly I didn't go very far ( my hips were screaming out with pain.) So I came back and said I will do some more later. It feels good. Little steps one day at a time.
