Holly, get some sleep. That's an order! Instead of being constantly on the go today, give yourself a break, have the hubby watch the kiddos and freaking take a nap. You deserve a break and you are tired. The misstep this morning for your breakfast was the best indicator that, if you don't get some rest, the rest of the day will follow in the same vein. Being tired doesn't mean just sluggishness, it also means having less resistance to bad food choices. Before you blow your whole week's worth of better eating, you should lie down. Even if you nap for just an hour, it'll make a difference and who's gonna get hurt if you do? In face, everyone in your family will benefit if you are feeling refreshed.
Judy, your pic of (dinner last night?) looks great. I ended up having something much like that. But my chicken had onion, mushrooms and spinach on top with a sprinkle of fresh grated parm. cheese.
Tonight is The Walking Dead season closer. And it's our "family party night" gathering. Dinner will be late and not so healthy. So I'll try to make up for it with better choices during the day.
Breakfast Probiotic/protein shake, vanilla, made w/ unsw vanilla almond milk
Lunch Heart healthy pita stuffed with egg salad sliced cukes handful of red grapes
Late afternoon snack 100 cal Greek yogurt
Dinner Baked jalapeno poppers 1/2 c mac n cheese celery and carrot stix and whatever dessert Monica/Alex make
Supposed to get to 77 today. Supposed to be sunshine.... but right now it's 54 and overcast. Looks like I'm going to have to "fire" the weather channel. LOL
Well Judy, at least your streets seem clear. But please be careful if that is where you normally walk. Doesn't look as though there's a lot of roadside turf to walk out of the traffic zone. I understand my old area in Michigan has gotten more snow too. I'm hoping that it will be completely gone my early May. That is when I go up to participate in the graveside service for my sister , Penny. Too much snow this year to have the service when she passed, and it has been potentially scheduled for May, now.
Love you berry heart image today. Although, when I first looked at it on my cell phone when I woke up, I wondered why you would post a "chocolate" heart for us. LOL Obviously, not fully awake for that first impression.
It was nice to see Laura back. I've been missing the oldies and goodies lately. Wish Kathy and Debbie could be regulars again too. Jeez. too many to say, actually. Miss Tia, miss Nancy, miss Rachael and Sharon and Barb......Waaaaah!
What ever happened with Rachael, Btw? Did she say she was branching out and going her own way or something? Or did she just take flight? Same with Barb.... she was going on that last bike trip with her hubby, then we never heard from her again. I didn't have her last name... Judy, you might have.... did you ever try to contact her ? Just to see if she was ok? I guess that one bothers me the most. Simply because she was saying how she's be letting us know how her trip went , etc. I think about it every so often and pray that their trip didn't end in catastrophe. Bah! Well, we can see where my head is going today. sigh
Breakfast Ofash oats w/pb and banana, made w/ unsw. almond milk, stevia and cinnamon
Lunch Protein shake
Dinner Chicken breast seared in EVOO w/ ital seasonings mushrooms florentine (spinach, mushroom, garlic, lf cheddar cheese casserole)
Late snack if wanted 1 hard boiled egg 4 green olives w/ pimentos 1 string cheese
Morning Judy, and everyone else for later. I'm sorry you are having trouble with your weight, Judy. It's still within the 2lb range though, so at least there's that.
Going to be a pretty nice day here. High of 72 and sunshine. So probably Gage and I will take a walk sometime later this afternoon. I have to go with Michael for his appointments today. First to OT then to eye dr. The OT is doing some electrical stim and they figure he will probably be a bit sore after, and the eye dr will probably have to dilate his eyes which means I drive. Gage will just have to be our "plus one" today.
I'm glad she liked the idea. I got it when my first food processor went kerfluey. I figured, two colors of cabbage and a bag of carrots would probably cost about the same, so wth. Certainly less than purchasing a new gadget when all I really wanted was egg rolls. LOL
