Late Night Victory

We met up with some of our friends tonight at our favorite Italian restaurant. Generally I share something to eat with my dear hubby when we meet up late night at the restaurant. But here lately I’ve been cutting out the late night snacks. Not only late night snacks, but I’m practicing not eating anything after 8:00.

Tonight was a real victory for me. I wasn’t hungry… and I didn’t even nibble on anything. I enjoyed my visit with our friends over a few cups of coffee… okay, so there are calories in my creamer. I’ll add the count to my daily calorie intake, and I’m still doing okay for the day.

Anyway, I can see how the little changes I’m making in my habits are making a difference in how I feel and my attitude. I’m excited to feel the progress!


Refreshing My Kitchen

My kitchen was fairly bare of anything when I got home… imagine that. I leave an 18 year old home alone and expect to come home to a stocked kitchen? Well not really. 

I stocked up on fresh fruits and vegetables. I found a great deal on danish squash, so I bought a few of them. YUM. I am so looking forward to my Sunday dinner!

Now I’m packing up the kitchen as I get ready for our upcoming move. I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not. As far as the stress level goes, if I get it done, I can check it off the list. But what about cooking for the next month?

I think I can get by with a casserole dish, a couple of pans, coffee pot, a knife, cutting board, and a can opener. We will see. I hope this decision doesn’t have an adverse affect on my healthy eating plan.

I’m Home and I’m Motivated!

I got home last night about midnight. In a previous post, I talked about my embarrassment of having to ask for a seat belt extender on my flight to Oklahoma. Well… my little shopping trip to the grocery store and all the exercise I worked into my daily routine helped me!

I got the seat belt fastened without an extender! 

Let me tell  ya, I don’t intend to have to ask for a seat belt extender ever again in my travels.
