I didn't do much sparking yesterday. I left around 2:30 to spend the night and Easter day at my Mom's house. She had planned a pork loin, mashed potatoes, carrots, her homemade applesauce for Easter dinner. First Easter dinner she has cooked in probably a decade at least. Stop & Shop had spiral ham on sale for $1.49lb. and I couldn't pass up a price like that so I bought a 6 pound ham and we had that on Saturday night. She made augratin potatoes, and roasted asparagus, yummy. For dessert she had Hood peanut butter cup ice cream. This I just don't get. She is so proud of all the weight I lost, so why does she have ice cream for dessert. Especially knowing the I bought a chocolate truffle bombe cake for dessert tomorrow.
. I got a 1/2 cup measuring cup out and measured out a portion. I also weighed my ham and asparagus and measured my potatoes.
For breakfast we had oatmeal bread, 2 hard boiled eggs and polish kielbasa. I did bank calories last week. There were 3 days that I didn't go over 1000 calories. Tomorrow I will go back to tracking, weighing and measuring. I didn't do it today. Now, I am going to go have a slice of bopka and a tsp of butter on it with a cup of hot chocolate. If I get hungry later, I will have a slim fast shake.
I am a little worried about my Mom. Her blood sugar was 135 this morning and her BP was 196/76. My SIL who is a RN said the top number is too high but the bottom number is pretty good. I tried to tell her she has to learn to just let things go and to learn to relax. She can't let Chuck get to her all the time. She might tell him to do something and if he doesn't do it witnin 10 seconds she gets mad. Chill---you asked him to do it, the world will not come to an end if it isn't done in 1/2 hour. He just may be in the middle of something. Take a chill pill. I couldn't live with either one of them, I would have to kill them within a day. Plus she back seat drives. My brother gets all pissed off and yells at her. Me, I pull over to the side of the road and ask her if she wants to walk? Yes, I do or I ignore her, or just consider that is what she does and don't let it bother me. She is 87 and that is my Mom, you either love her or you would want to kill her. That is why her and my Dad made the perfect couple.
I hope you enjoyed your Easter. Like I said, I usually don't celebrate Easter. My Mom always went with my sister and her DH to his sister's and I didn't want to go so I always just stayed home alone. This year Paula and Dusty are in FL visiting friends so Mom cooked a meal. It was nice being with family, Mom even invited Kevin, Kim's boyfriend. She doesn't really like him. He didn't even smoke all the time he was there. An Easter for the books.
