Oh the big four-oh. Sounds a lot more exciting than it was. Not too bad though. I visited with one of my cousins, my parents came over and helped me with some things. They are so amazing! I picked up my daughter from school, shopped a little bit and ran some errands, and went home. We decorated the porch with some chrysanthemums that I scored for a buck a piece and had leftover chicken spaghetti for supper. It was really good.
So speaking of food, this is what I had yesterday. I missed breakfast because I was running around doing housework and failed to realize I hadn't eaten. Then at lunch I had broccoli and cheese soup. For supper, as I said, I had leftover chicken spaghetti and for a snack I had some fun size Halloween candy. Since I didn't have any wifi late last night, I couldn't check my calories. I went WAY under. I could have had 738 more. Ugh.
Speaking of Halloween candy, I want to mention that while I have shown great restraint and have managed to only eat a couple or three pieces a day, I am SORE. All that added sugar and high fructose corn syrup has kicked my butt. I have also been drinking some lightly sweetened tea. Bad plan. I am hurting fiercely. So I am going back to water and unsweetened tea and giving away all that dang leftover candy. Good riddance, temptress!
No formal exercise yesterday, and tons of joint pain, but still up and moving a lot more than I used to.
Now for my BIG news! I finally got the scale moved yesterday. I am down two more pounds! Hooray! I'm gonna do it this time. I just know it.
Peace, love and blessings to all.
