A Sunny Tuesday

What I woke up to this morning.
Even though I woke up late, and my son was late for school,
it was nice to walk out and see these in my yard :)
My Mom planted these and a bunch of other flowers last summer. She has a beautiful yard, and wanted to bring over extra flowers that had to be separated and thinned out. I told her no, because I wouldn't take care of them... but she did anyway, saying she would come weed them or whatever. Of course, it is all over grown now- and out of control lol. But when some bloom, it sure is pretty :)
I may seem complicated sometimes, but it really doesn't take much to make me happy :)

Here's My Day:
Breakfast: 1/2 iced coffee and a fudge round (I know... not good)
Lunch: turkey, pepperoni, hot pepper ring sandwich with 1 tbs miracle whip on whole wheat, water
Snack: .7 oz almonds, .4 oz cinnamon almonds
Dinner: Romain and carrot salad with 1/8 cup cheddar and 2 tbs light ranch, 1 portion of chicken alfredo, 2 bread sticks, water
Snack: an apple and about 3 tbs fruit dip
Total Water: 50 oz
I don't feel very good, I think because I over ate. Even though it was only one serving of dinner, it was more than enough. That with the salad and bread made me full. Then the snack? I didn't need it.  I wanted something sweet even though I wasn't hungry. An apple and dip was better then the 300 calorie fudge round, BUT I wasn't hungry and shouldn't have had ANYTHING. I'm probably full of water too. I have been doing very well getting in at least 40 oz since I started drinking out of my water bottles.
Being full is part of the reason I didn't get on the treadmill. But mostly because I am just soo tired tonight. I did do a good amount of housework today, so I'm going to take advantage of actually being tired and go to bed. Even though it means missing Betty White on Jimmy Falon tonight. LOL, that woman cracks me up :)

I watched Loosing It with Jillian tonight. It was very good. Didn't know if I would like it because I have mixed feelings towards Jillian I guess LOL. But I did like it. Was a tear jerker too. Did you watch it? What did you think?


  1. I personally am not a fan of Jillians - no offense, but she just seems so over the top meanie and although I appreciate her purpose, nope made Pooldad change the channel. Perhpas this show will be different? I should, at least, give it a chance, eh?

    Hey - and 13.4 is a loss - and more than half what your goal was - so I would take that as a win. It isn't easy and 13.4 lbs is a nice job - so take it and go forward! YAY!

  2. PS - I wanted to let you know you can make that Key Lime Pie recipe I posted with Egg Beaters in place of the yolks and with low fat sweetened condensed milk - it is JUST as tasty [trust me] and way better for you. Okay?

  3. Thanks SkippyMom! I feel I could have done better, but that's ok. I AM proud of the 13.4 :)

    And thanks for the suggestion for the pie! Being better for you is definitely a plus! I am not the greatest cook, or baker lol. But I'll try anything that's not to hard and has good directions!!! lol.

  4. Oh, no offense taken! LOL, I have also said how I don't really like Jillian. I love the show the biggest looser, but I didn't watch last season because she was SO over the top. I think she tries to find all these emotional problems, even if there isn't any... she likes to make people cry I guess.

    BUT the show was good. And they really did have deep emotional issues that she helped sort out. You still might not like it, but who knows? Maybe you would? :)
