Happy happy Mother's Day!

Sunday, May 12, 2013

We are having another drismal rainy day today in RI. emoticon

My poor daughter, who got home from work at 11:30 last night (from walmart) had to be back at work for 9 this morning. emoticon
Hope she doesn't have to collect carts in the rain today (she does that some days).
Before she left at 8:15 she ate a healthy breakfast, unloaded the dishwasher and remembered to leave a card and gift for me for Mother's Day. emoticon
Is she not the sweetest little thing? emoticon

The scale made me happy again today, my official weigh-in day, so I changed my ticker, and waist has consistently been down an inch so I am sticking with that! emoticon

My plan today is a semi-fast-
only green tea until I hit the gym this morning-
a normal lunch-
and a steak dinner tonight.
We do flatiron steaks now- so easy to slice and eat just 3-4 ounces- and lean, too, hopefully with my son and dil and grandkids. emoticon

I hope all of you mothers have a fabulous day and,
if you are one of the lucky ones with a mom still around,
give her a tender hug and kiss today.
She may not have been perfect but she's the reason you are here.
They don't live forever.
I lost my dear mother in 2007, at the age of 80.

    I think of my mother so often, even though she died in 1993. Hard to believe that it's been 20 years.

    Happy Mother's Day! I was to visit my parents this weekend (85 and 82 years old), but we had a change of plans. I'm the only daughter, so I certainly will call Mom today!

Congrats on the inch and the pound lost.

    Happy Mother's Day to you, too. This is my first year without my Mother. My parents, siblings, all our children and some grandchildren by marriage usually gather as a family to celebrate 3 birthdays and Mother's Day together so we all don't have to chase each other all over the city to find the respective Moms. I expect it to get a little teary today...

    Happy MD to you! Lining up to be just about perfect! (And thank goodness we MOTHERS are not held to a standard of perfection, right??)

    My Mom and I have a difficult relationship.... so thanks for the gentle nudge... I'll give her a call today. :o)

Also, I was just browsing apps at the itunes store and noticed a 5:2 Fasting App with recipes. If you have an iPad or Smartphone you will want to check it out.

Have a wonderful Day!
