    Good Saturday Morning

    weigh in 154

    2 soft boiled eggs
    1 slice pumpernickel toasted
    3.4 oz orange
    1 C black coffee

    I will be walking today yesterday I did weigh lifting 21 minutes no rest between sets
    so it was a no walk day I did do a lot of shopping anyway \

    Dinner plans are sweet potato broccoli baked chicken breast side salad

    the usual stuff in the evening nuts fruit etc

    I really liked the avocado in the chicken salad in place of most of the mayo it is healthy fats that way
    and it makes a bonus flavor punch
    here is my recipe for chicken salad

    2 Cups diced cooked chicken breast
    2 carrots grated
    2 stalks celery chopped
    about 1/4 C chopped walnuts
    a sprinkle poultry seasoning
    salt and pepper to taste
    I mix half of a very ripe avocado with 2 Tablespoons real mayo
    add to the mix and stir
    this is really good
    this makes about 4 sandwiches maybe 5
    I like it on pumpernickel

    Hugs Judy

    Bored and Waiting for DH to get home from a quick day trip to VT. He reports there's still snow on the ground there. Good grief it's May! I can't quite fathom hot yet, Michelle and Sandy. NSV is that the boredom hasn't made me EAT!

    Weight is still the same. Nothing new to report. I'm still eating the same breakfast, and a few different lunches and dinner. I'm keeping my calories around 1000 to 1100.

    I just want to say that the photo Judy posts everyday gets examined by me very closely because I'm checking to see which veggies or fruits have slipped my mind lately so I can add them to the shopping list. Thanks!

    hey Aussie

    I wilt in the heat too. I learned a trick from my dad cuz he was diabetic. He bought these kerchiefs that have cooling beads in hem. You put in water and let the beads get big and squishy and then I put it in the fridge. Around your neck the kerchief goes. Its so cool it really helps.
    My dad had naropathy pretty severly along with many other complications of diabetis. He still do his huge garden and cut the lawn which was crazy big.
    I found mine at rei a few years ago. You can go to that huge flea market up hiway 76 and they usually have them but don't know if that's up ur alley or not.

    so breakfast: 2 cornbread broke up with honey drizzle
    over them and cinna mon
    2 cuppa 1/2-1/2

    lunch: 1 3 oz. piece of grilled chicken, 1/2 bun, lettuce, tomato, onions just dry

    1 g2 lemon

    I think I will go cut up some strawberries opps can't gotta go get up some flowers for neighbor

    Hi Judy.... I had 2 eggs fried also with spray of Pam. I like my yokes soft for dunking 2 slices of whole wheat bread with nothing on it. And a cold glass of OJ. After 20 mins., I took a walk up the road and back, about 20 minutes one way. It felt good to walk, the weather was warm and beautiful.

    ausgram replied to parakeet210's response:
    Oh yeh, that big sale in Commerce City? Oh yeh. I love all the veggies they sell. Man, it's been a long while since I been up there. How bout those turkey legs? Oooooo to die for. ha ha!

    Hey Keepthefaith, I love my eggs like that too.

    Ok, for lunch I fixed a taco salad. Now the taco salad I fix is nothing like the taco salad from a restaurant. Mine are healthy, wealthy and wise. Just kidding, but mine are healthy. Nothing fatting in it and very low cal.

    I ended up having a great day. I got another row planted in my garden. Heard from couple of my grandkiddos. One of them went to CA for the weekend. Left her baby with my son and dil. Lucky them. Ha. I remember those good ole days.

    Keepthefaith, Judy puts a picture of all the veggies and fruit we are suppose to be eating to encourage us to keep watch of what we are eating. This is where we all gather each day to post our weight and what we eat and how much exercise we do. Hope you join us each day.

    Good evening all. I survived the lunch/meeting. My macaroni salad was a hit but I made too much. I know it's not diet friendly but if anyone wants the recipe give a holler. I'm going to give the rest of it away as it is too tempting for me.

    Kathy could you get your hubby to send me some of that snow? Please? I'm on my knees begging and if you knew how hard it is for me to get back up you'd know how desperate I am. It was only 95

    I think I'm going to lay around tomorrow. The heat takes a lot out of me and gets on my last nerve. At least it helps my appetite.

    Oh I almost forgot. We also had Chinese chicken salad, homemade dinner rolls that were divine and this cherry cookie dough dessert thing. I haven't had enough water today and I'm parched and trying to catch up. I'll probably be up all night.

    Til tomorrow.

    ausgram replied to parakeet210's response:
    Keet, in case you come back to this post, here is how I make my taco salad.

    I have a taco salad pan I bought from Avon. I stick a tortilla in it and bake it for 15 mins on 350 degrees
    After I take it out and it cools, I put salt free pinto beans that I moosh on the bottom, the a small amout of grated chedder chz, then my buffalo meat or 95% lean hamburg, then lots of lettuce, then salsa, then avocado that I have mooshed up and put garlic powder in, then about a tbsp. of sour cream. A few chopped up tomoatos and wahlah!!

    I love this website and everyone that is on it. All of you are the best buddy system anyone can ask for. God Bless each and everyone of you. Judy, I am glad you share what you eat. I always need more ideas. I got tired of egg salad and tuna salad. Last 2 months, I have been making Chicken salad. I boil up boneless chicken breast, remove after done and let cool in bowl in refridgerator for about 20 minutes. Then, I put it in food chopper for minced consistency. After removing chicken, I cut up 1 whole onion and put in food chopper to same consistency. I then add Hellman's Mayo (my family will eat nothing else). I can't keep enough of it in the house, they love it. I am going to try your recipe Judy, Thanks !!! Peace, Diane
