Have been charting my food for a while - not very consistently tho. I really do not eat that much - just the wrong things. Yesterday breakfast was an English muffin and coffee. Lunch was left-over spaghetti (no cheese) and some salad. Dinner was a hamburger that we bbq'd on our new hibachi. Nothing later - just a glass of iced tea - sometimes I have a small bowl of fruit with a dab of ice cream (just got some peaches and they are not ripe yet.)
As I look over the nutrients, I am not getting enough protein. I do love cheese, but that really ups the calories. Others are low too, but protein is the most obvious.
I have made a few of the SparkPeople recipes and find them really good and easy. But, have not really done many. So, today am going to print out their grocery list and then look at the recipes recommended for this week - and fix at least two of them - will try to do more, but committing to two is what I know I will do.

A trying to get some house cleaning done - but keep ending up here at the computer. It is a little cooler today - in the mid 70s.
Have finally cleared off a spot in my bedroom for my sewing machine. i have 1 quilt top finished and ready to quilt and blocks for 2 other quilts finished. Now to get them put together before winter. Our blankets are as old as the hills and are wearing out. I love the 2 quilts I have on my bed and want to finish one of these for my son.
Thursday was my sister's birthday!! I would love to have celebrated with her, but she lives in Brookings and i live in Pendleton - a little far to go for an evening. I sent her a card and will call her this afternoon. She did have a nice birthday - went to the casino with a friend and came home with $75. Also, had a nice steak dinner.
Also, gotta get that hibachi put together so we can bbq tomorrow.
Hope everyone is enjoying cooler weather!!

Just have to share!! Just got a phone call from my daughter - she has passed the Oregon State board exam for her RN degree.
She is a full time wife and mother of 3 girls at home (and a Sailor stationed in San Diego). So it has been quite a struggle - there were many times she just wanted to quit - but her family was so encouraging and supportive. Now, she is saying that if she had it to do again, she would not do it. NOT!!
But, I know that she will do well - she has a deep compassion for others.
I am so proud of her.
