sorry this didn't post spread out like it typed it... HUMM??? top row is what I did today and bottom row is my ranges of each! Oh well!

Pretty happy with my eating today. Well balance meals all day. NO PROCESSED foods... nada.. none..

NO cookies, ice cream, chips, crackers... and junk

Only lean proteins, good fats, smart carbs, low fat dairy, lots veggies and fruits.

Here was my great breakfast, I also had a cup of skim milk with it and water.

Pretty oatmeal huh? I used to HATE oatmeal so bad. Mom fixed it every stinkin' morning and us 4 kids were supposed to eat it and LIKE it! WELL that is all fine and dandy but here is the problem..
I rode the bus for over an hr. every morning and I got car sick every day on the bus! Throwing up oatmeal allot will make you HATE IT! LOL
Do I hear an AMEN?
NObody wanted to sit by me... of course not! DUH! emoticon
And I started wearing a raincoat so I didn't have to "wear" that oatmeal all day! Smart huh?
emoticon emoticon

I was only 6 yrs old and this went on forever.. (well to me it was forever.. most of first grade!)

Yes I had a smart mom... don't really know why this had to be 'groundhog day' all the time???

Here is a pretty butterfly on my flocks today!

another butterfly here... probably about 100 on them at a time... today..

this one was taken a few weeks back on my lilies... spectacular I think!

Have you ever seen this "weed" that is how it is classified the the University of Arkansas Extension office... A weed..... but a GORGEOUS one I might add. IT is called MAYPOP PASSION FLOWER

Now here is my Jadabear (my granddaughter trying to ride my sons play horse this week! LOL
she finally just sat on him anyway
Here are some cool clouds today:

Look at my sunset tonight!

and my sunsets (well God's sunsets He shares with me) this past week:

And last here is a precious picture of a couple of my English Bulldog puppies... we have raised English Bulldogs for over 14 yrs.
everybody say "AWWWW"""" and yes they are so fun to snuggle! They have nose rolls and I have a belly roll... oh... their's is cute...mine..not so much! LOL

wrinkles never looked this good on me!

playful and cute as a bug!

This one says "Hey Mom, I found a leaf, pretty cool huh?"

and last they are tellin' secrets... that is what "GIRLS" do!

Ok... so I only meant to post 1 picture of the puppies... You can see I have a passion for them! I love them like my kiddos, maybe even more!

Thanks for all you sparkies continued support!

Love you guys too.. (just not as much as my bullies)!

Well shoot I left "PUPPIES" out of my title... should have left Oatmeal out of it instead!

    What a great blog! I loved it! What great pictures! I think your puppies are soooooooooo cute! I love dogs. I just wish mine would behave more! My youngest dog can be such a bad dog. He gets into so much trouble, just being a dog!
    Your picture of your "weed", it kind of looks like my purple bee balm! How funny is that! The humming birds and the butterflies really like it! I am going to try and get another picture of that flower that I am trying to find out what it is. I will try and get in on here tomorrow! Hope you have a great day! Take care, Sunny

    I used to hate oatmeal too - now I can't believe how much I love it. I've been eating it every morning for years. And I miss it when I don't.

    A day without any processed foods - that is pretty impressive lady. Keep on rocking this. Love the pics.

    Your pictures are beautiful. I love them all, butterflies, puppies and granddaughter. I know about having oatmeal every day as a kid. My Mom always said "it sticks to your ribs" and I guess it was pretty cheap because we had 5 kids. I said I was never going to eat oatmeal when I grew up, but just like you, I started eating it because it seemed to be one of the things runners have for breakfast and I'm a wanna be runner. I actually fix it up like you do and love it. I have even eaten it for a snack. We are trying to start a butterfly garden and have our first catapillers. It is in an enclosed breeze way and we are trying to make it like a butterfly haven. The Pipevine Swallow Tails are rare in our area and we are trying to raise them. We also have plants outside for Monarchs, so I am hoping we have success. Maybe I'll have some beautiful pictures of my own. Thank you for sharing.

    Beautiful pictures.

    I can sooo relate to how you feel about oatmeal, cheese made me sick and I still don't care much for it because I remember how sick it made me.

    My hubs and my favorite oatmeal right now is with peanut butter and cherry preserves. (Any jelly, really, but the cherry preserves with real cherries in it is AWESOME).

    The butterflies and puppies and Granddaughter are all gorgeous. :)

    Great pictures. I was sick before school too. You'd think our mothers would have learnt and given us a sandwich to eat later! Love the pups!
