    cannot avoid things that are destined to happen I guess

    I do need fruits and vegies I do hope they have something I can buy like boneless chicken breasts to get back on plan

    Morning.
    Well Judy,since I've basically been on "no intentional exercise" for a month... I'm trying to get slowly back into the swing of things. Today it's heavy fog.... not happy . I hate the walking park in fog . It's spooky. But today is walk day and I'm here. Am taking my cell just in case...will post pics after walk.

    So far..1 cup of coco coffee.

    We're warm and were foggy earlier here today too, Kim. Love your doggie. Did I tell you that I am looking for a dog now - finally ready. I want to get a rescue, but it's been hard to find small dogs so far. Our local animal shelter has almost all pit bulls. Sad, but true.

    Back to business:

    AM weight 152! Yay, going the right direction again

    Breakfast: the usual oatmeal, etc.
    Lunch: spring mix salad with broccoli and carrots, a little cheese sprinkled on top and 2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
    Dinner: going to a basketball game tonight and eating out with a friend who's going with me. Will try to make healthy choices wherever we end up eating.

    Debbie, no, I hadn't heard that you were ready to try for another canine companion. Good for you!
    Take your time to find one that "fits" . But you may want to also look online for specific types of rescue dogs. Like Frenchy rescue, or snoodle, caboodle, snorky.... whateverthehell rescue.
    Sometimes you can really get the one you want by doing that.

    I know you want a small dog, but you may want to look at sporting dogs and mixes to keep up with you as you run. Some are smaller breeds but they can run a coon or rabbit or whatever down.... maybe like a Jack Russell or a standard Schnauzer which are both energetic breeds.

    Just a thought. But I'm still just so happy for you.

    Yes. Holly tends to run to blubber like the rest of us ladies, lol.
    She hasn't been getting any exercise, because I'm her walking partner. So I have been doing an injustice to myself and both my dogs.

    I'm getting there. One step at a time, again.

    Forgive me, Debbie.. for the life of me, I can't remember what state you live in.
    But, I was just googling and found this. Just as an example of what Rescues I was talking about.

    check out the 3 or 4 cockapoo puppies that were rescued from a puppy mill..... so cute!

    Breakfast for me was whole grain oatmeal with apples and cinnamon.

    Lunch was fried rice with veggies and pepper steak.

    Dinner was teriyaki chicken and mixed veggies. I had about a tbsp and a half of shredded cheese on top of the veggies. Skipped the white rice. Glass of skim milk.

    I also had 8 oz of hot chocolate today.

    For exercise, my abs are a little sore from yesterday (I'm not quite sure from what....) so I didn't do a whole lot. We went to Carol of the Lights for the university here. They have their band and choirs playing and singing Christmas songs. The mascots go around and greet people, and then they turn on all of the Christmas lights for the Tech campus. So we walked ten minutes from our parking spot to the event and stood outdoors at the event for somewhere from 45-60 minutes. Walked the 10 minutes back to the car. We went to the park with our dogs afterwards so they could work off some excess energy. I had one drumstick ice cream cone - I haven't had them in months. I stayed at one. I really REALLY wanted another one, but I resisted. There are four left (other people had some) and I told the rest of my family about the ice cream cones so hopefully they will eat the rest of them before I go out there looking for them.

    Got home and vacuumed for about 15 minutes. Tomorrow I'm planning on doing some actual "exercise" if I have time before or after rehearsal. Tomorrow is our last rehearsal, and then we have performances Th, Fri, Sat, and Sun nights.

    I'm in the orchestra and am pretty excited about this. It's really nice to be able to play my violin again. Yay!

    justmejust replied to totallywiggedout's response:
    I find this recipe might be something I can finally do. I even liked sweet and sour chicken at one point in my life.,I burn myself cooking most every time. I am uncoordinated when cooking. It takes me FOREVER to buy the food, read the recipes, prepare the food, clean after cooking, set the table, get the drinks, clean the table, clean the dishes, and my feet always hurt at some point from standing on them. And no my family does not starve! I broil salmon, steak, cook pork, chicken, steam shrimp. I might add spices. I steam broccoli , green beans, I bake potato, sweet potato, boil corn on cob, cook roast, serve fresh spinach. So see everything I make is simple one ingredient. And it is all very tasty. Anyway. Just nothing new or from a recipe because I have a hard enough time getting out of the kitchen alive as it is!
