I did survive the weekend :)

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Well if you read my last blog you know my son surprised me and came home from Portland OR for the weekend. Every year we have a family/friend party usually in June. We were concerned about the weather (getting into the high 80's), we had a nice breeze most of the day so all went well. Had tons of food (some healthy, some not so healthy) I snacked my way through the day and drank twice as much water than normal for me. Never once did I feel hungry or unenergized. Between the watermelon and veggie tray with a few chips and guacamole I survived the party. Spent the rest of the night with Josh catching up on about 2 hours sleep and took him to the airport. Yesterday I made up for the none eating on Sunday, but still stayed within my calorie count.....not healthy calories I must admit. I also slept on and off most of the day. My body just told me to take it easy and I did. All in all the weekend was the to get back into tracking and eating sensibly.
Thanks for stopping by hugs to all who read this... emoticon

    That had to be such a special time and you really did well. Don't blame you for the napping. I'm sure you were exhausted but very happy.

    Glad that you survived the party. Good that you spent time with your son, I know that meant a lot to you. Brianna's graduation party was a pig roast. I did pretty good with my eating too. I was worried because her Mom's family isn't the healthiest eaters. I sis have a bite of a cannoli. The first one I ever had.
