Day 22 of the Challenge report here!

Please report your progress on the challenge here!

I have been really busy. The Johnny Depp movie was good although I think they overdid the gore part! I can't explain without spoiling it~! Johnny was excellent as usual! It was a little long, but I can't figure out if that was because it was actually long or whether the fact that I drank the HUGE iced tea that came with our ticket and was desperate to go to the washroom by the end of the movie! LOL

Girl's night out was fun! AND I ordered a salad!
AND when they brought the usual birthday treat with singing etc I had two bites and passed the rest around! ( WOW! That is a change! )
Shows what happens when you shift your focus from food to enjoying the company and the moment!

We took a pic but it wasn't a very good one!

Then on Sat I had to do my cleaning job...Friday was running around doing errands etc...and had my mani - pedi from my husband in the morning!

Sunday was church and then I tried to just relax. I have low iron so am cutting down on coffee and it is not easy, having headaches. Supplements started including vit B 12, Iron, Vit C and probiotics!

This is the first year I did not have a birthday cake! THAT is different!

Today I am babysitting my nephews.....

Looking forward to a quieter week this week!

    Well done Mel. I'm proud of your resolve to only have a
    little of your cake/treat. I went to see 'The LOne Ranger'
    last night with my son. I used to put him to sleep with
    Lone Ranger stories when he was little and we had a
    good time together. I thought it was funny and i was
    thoroughly entertained. Johnny Depp was terrific and
    I loved Helena Bonham Carter. She is in a lot of his movies.
    I went to exercise class this morning. I will send you a coffee
    because I was tempted at work and had a home baked
    scone with fresh cream. emoticon

    Oh yes, try raisins for iron! Summers are tough. There seems to be so many times we go out but doing ok. Heading home to see the folks in a couple days and a bit worried about food.

    Sounds like you had a wonderful Birthday-Era celebration. I personally think birthdays should stretch out over many days...I'm hanging in, realized it's been a long time since I checked in. Doing ok, not perfect but working on it. Using the Fitbit as a guide to keep the calorie intake and exercise balance.
    Hope you are having a great day with your nephews.
