Fell - but not far and not for long!

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

TGEIO or thank goodness Easter is over! but I actually did pretty good. The ham Mom bought was icky with lots of fat. Yes Mom, I really am the best ham-picker in our house. There were enough nice slices for Easter dinner's company but the rest will need to be fried or something, the "or something" probably being frozen until past edible, then tossed. I tripped over the lemon pound cake and the jalapeno cornbread-three slices of one, four of the other but that is as bad as it got and that was over two days so I done good.

My tracking suffered more than anything else because I was out of town a couple of days, busy Easter, and Mom had to go to the hospital yesterday for an arteriogram which took most of the day. With great care, I likely won't lose anything this week but I shouldn't gain either.

Hope all of you had a great holiday weekend and attended at least one Easter service. Jesus is the reason for this season too!

    That old proverb is true--fall down six times, get up seven. Good job!

    It's important to celebrate, it is part of life and just as good as eating healthy. It's when the overeating is everyday that it becomes a problem. You had a great holiday and now your attitude is "back to normal" so you did GREAT. Have a super week. Hope you mom is ok. emoticon

    Glad you had a good Easter. We had ham last night and very little fat on it. Next time you'll have to pick out the ham. Your menu sounds yummy and hey it was a holiday and then now you're moving forward again. Like you said it could always be worse. I hope the test turns out well for your Mom. Sounds like you've been very busy. That helps keep us "out of trouble" emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You done GREAT - sometimes you really DO have to go with the flow. Also, your ideas about taking care of the ham make good sense. I think you should be really proud of your success. How much worse COULD it have been? I didn't hear tons of candy, or whole cakes. Seems reasonable to me. Prayers for you and your mother and Yes, He is risen indeed.

    My mother made a pineapple upside down cheesecake and some other fattening dessert.... I don't know why she does that when she knows that some of us are trying to get better with our health and she herself needs to lose weight. Yes, I ate some of each, and I did pig out on Easter, but like you, I'll get back up.

    I would of tripped over that cornbread too. I made a lemon pound cake because my hubby loves it and I don't. Stayed out of trouble that way ---hehe

    It is not about what we eat but what He did that makes Easter. Have a great day and emoticon
