    How are your peepers today Aussie? Glad you were a brave girl and got the job done. That's a NSV if I ever saw one considering that glaucoma was the alternative! Hope you're comfortable!

    YAWWWWWN...Morning Judy et al.
    LATE LATE night last night. Up till 3 and back up at 645am. yucko.
    But, a new book has hooked me and every time I try to relax with it, it draws me in and the next thing I know, it's almost time to get up without having been down for the night, lol

    Ah, the problems of the bibliophile. I suffer in the name of the written word.



    This AM , I am down even further from the 1am post.
    177 lbs. AND , this is a crucial point I might add, I DID NOT eat in bed last night. I always settle in with a munchie, almonds and apricots and prunes or popcorn... not last night and hopefully never again.

    Been raining off and on the last couple of days. With that, the heat and my gym workouts, my AM walks have gone by the wayside. Holly is missing them though so I will probably do one tomorrow, perhaps even later this morning if the weather looks like it'll hold and if I can get my butt moving...

    Breakfast
    Dutch cocoa coffee
    Chai Chia oatmeal with a diced peach on top

    Lunch
    Vanilla Protein Shake with 1 Tblsp Chia Seeds

    Afternoon Workout
    30 min recumbant bike, 10 min eliptical strider, 45 min pool exercises

    PM Snack
    Deli Turkey rollup with 1 wedge laughing cow light, 2 Tblsp fig preserves and a handful of baby spinach.

    Dinner
    2 slices Thin and Crispy Pizza Hut Veggy pizza and 3 breadsticks with sauce
    side salad w/ dressing on the side

    Have a great day everybody!

    But I have a bad habit of Kims. ha ha ha! Hey, gotta blame someone. It ain't my fault. ha ha JUST kidding Kim. Your easy to pick on. Tha bad habit is getting the munchies at night. I ate at 9 a bunch of pecans and M&Ms. Boo hoo.

    I'll try and do better today/tonight.

    Brkfst - 1 cup of blueberries, 1/3 cup of milk and a cup of joe.

    totallywiggedout replied to ausgram's response:
    Aus, I know what you mean about the midnight munchies..... too easy to grab the "little things" that add up quick.
    I do want to say, pecans are tasty, but ditch em. They have almost 200 more calories than almonds per cup and only have HALF the protein, they have a very low "fullness factor rating".
    Yes nuts are healthier than sweets but all nuts ARE NOT created equal.

    Check your nuts at www.nutritiondata.com

    And you already know that I'm gonna poke you about the M&Ms so I won't say it, lol

    Sandy,

    I am so relieved about your eyes. That sounded VERY unpleasant.

    I am taking a day of rest today. My body feels very fatigued. 24 hours of rest should help my legs, back etc. to recover.

    weight 216

    breakfast .5C rolled oats
    .5 C. blackberries
    .5 t. cinnamon

    I am doing housework today to the extent I am able. It will be a quiet day at home.

    Smoochies,

    Sandy,

    I used to have a HORRIBLE problem of midnight munchies. It all revolved around peanuts and chocolate. I discovered that portion control was the answer. Milk chocolate with added sugar-like M & M's-did not satisfy nearly as well as the lower fat, lower sugar alternative of semi-sweet chocolate chips. I would take a small dish and put 1 T. of choc. chips and count out a few nuts in. I would add them to my calorie count for the day. Then I would enjoy my snack very slowly, making it last 30 minutes or so. At the end, I could feel victorious. It had not been mindless eating. It was included in my daily totals. It was satisfying because it was eaten slowly.

    I will ever and always give Weight Watchers their props for teaching me portion control.

    Smoochies,

    No guilt Aussie. M&M's are for medicinal purposes after double eye surgery. But today you are back in Dr. Kim's hands so you'll have to shape up Girlie! Carrot sticks are good for your eyes AND your waist.

    Aus so glad you're back and that you've survived the laser surgery. My dad had many laser surgeries on his eyes throughtout his last 10 years of life for retinopathy. It's amazing isn't it what a laser can do??
    Grats to you for having the courage to go thru with it!

    I've had a cuppa this morning and am not hungry at all and the thought of food make me wanna get sick. Don't know what that's all about so I guess i'll just get something when I get hungry.
    I'm planning on getting to the store today so I can load up on some good veggies and fruits. I always buy them however, I've been so busy with work I end up just making something simple for dinner. Unlike me.

    Have a great day lassies. sb

    Sandy- So glad your "peepers" are doing well. I agree that you were very brave!

    Abby- Sorry you are feeling lousy. I wish there was something I could say or do to make it go away. Give yourself credit for functioning. I am completely serious. Getting through your day when on the inside you are a wreck IS doing something. Hope you feel better soon.

    As for me, last night I was depressed. It seems I am getting more needy and emotional lately. I had my meal as planned and did my 40 on the treadmill, and then went to the store and bought 2 pints of ice cream and gobbled them down before my cut off time at 8P. Argh! Then went to bed until 1P today. I just counted...that's 17 hours in bed. Ridiculous! I got on here and then gave myself a pep talk in my journal. Feel OK now and the weight was only affected slightly (281.2). Thanks for being a place I can turn to.
