     Good morning! I am slow at getting an update in, shame on me :( . So my anniversary dates went amazingly. I do have to admit, while I did well the night we went out to dinner, I decided that I was in need of a true cheat weekend. Normally on my cheat days, I do not go over my calorie limit and I always log, the cheat consists of a non healthy food and that is about the extent. On a true cheat weekend, I do not log and most likely go over my calorie limit. I have not had one of these since New Year's Eve. I did not suffer any grave consequences as it was only for a day. Saturday and Sunday I ate with reckless abandon and though I am sure I did not eat over my BMR, I am positive that I exceeded my calorie limit and blew the sodium and fats out of the water. Needless to say I do not expect big losses on Friday, just hoping for no gain. I will not be surprised either way. Now that I have it out of my system, I am back on track this week. I will be sharing some new recipes over the next month or so. I am really excited because July's calendar is full of new things for dinner. Here is what we had last night:
Sweet & Sour Pork 335 Calories
     Now, to tell you about my dates.... Friday night we ate at the Outback Steakhouse, it was really good, and I love lobster! My only complaint was their silverware, it was HUGE. I know, silly thing to not like, but I felt a little like Alice In Wonderland. After dinner we went to a place called Boondocks and played miniature golf, I lost LOL. We also hit the arcade area of this place and let me tell you, I don't remember ever having such a good time on a date. We were total kids, played things like ski ball, and air hockey. When we were done there ,it was off to Dairy Queen to have Ice Cream. We took that to a local park (this was like 10 at night). The childish playing continued as we played on the playground. This experience reminded us of the importance of laughter. On Saturday, we attended my family reunion. It was so great to see everyone. Later that night, Daniel and I went to the Drive In and watched a couple of movies. What a great way to close out a great weekend. Daniel must have also enjoyed our time because Sunday morning he says: "What do you think about a date for every year we are married, to celebrate our anniversary."... I love this idea though I must admit that when we get up in the double digits it will be interesting. LOL.
     I guess that will be enough rambling for today, stay tuned for tomorrow, where I will talk about..... something else. LOL  Have a great day yall!


  1. Happy Anniversary!! I am glad that you went out and had a good time! While I am still not logging my foods, I am back to exercising which I had stopped doing for about three months due to pneumonia. I have no idea why I am so unwilling to chart my foods, but there is a mental block. I have been trying to eliminate my night time eating and that has been going fairly well. I guess I am just going to take it one step at a time. I am looking forward to reading about your healthy recipes!! I just went to the library and checked out a healthy eating cookbook. :o)

    1. Thank you! You are doing a great job, the logging will come in time when you are ready. You are already on the road to success, I started the same way. Small changes over time make for lasting results. My grandma never got into logging her calories on the computer, she keeps hers in a little notebook. Don't know if that will help but she seems to enjoy it, she says it feels like a little game to her. If you come across any tasty recipes in that book, I'd love to try them out too!

  2. What a wonderful way to celebrate!
