Good morning!!!

I have been doing a little reading this past week and I wanted to share some of the inspirational people I read about…

Things with me have been good. I feel like I am losing soooo slow but when I look at the big picture it does not look that way. I know I am just getting impatient but then I step back and look at what I am doing.

My choices of what to eat have been really good.

The choice to be more active daily is a regular occurrence now.

I am definitely happier.

I am also less stressed.

So when you look at those things, I really cannot complain. Things are definitely moving in the right direction.

Share with me something that inspires you?

Until next time…

Win Some Lose Some

A fabulous day friends!!

Things here are going day by day and there are good days…most are…there are bad days like last night.

I tried to marinade my chicken in a marinade I have used for a long time. It did not go so well. I had already had a bad headache most of the day and the marinade just pushed me over the edge. I did not dump, however I did lose my dinner.

This morning however is much better thankfully.

This is truly all a new way of eating and thinking about food. It’s all a learning process. Learning what my new stomach will tolerate, what it will not. What I have a taste for has even changed. I tried some spinach last week…I absolutely love(d) spinach…I however gagged as soon as I put it in my mouth! I just could not take the texture or the taste!! I was dumbfounded!! I mean I ate and loved eating spinach. We had it at least 3-4 times a week. Now the thought of it makes me wanna hurl!

I have been told this can and usually does change as time goes by. I hope so.

This evening I am trying shrimp. Hoping it goes well. =)

My water and protein levels have been awesome. Protein has been a minimum of 70g. and water has been a minimum of 64 oz.

I was reading Mizfit’s blog and got S.L.A.P.ed…

Until next time…

A fantastic morning all!There are pirates here in these parts!

We have the Bounty visiting our harbor this weekend and we were hoping to be able to take a tour…BUT they were not giving tours when we were there…maybe this weekend.

I have been doing really good with water and protein and have stepped up my steps. I find it just so redundant to keep saying the same things over and over so will update as I see a difference or have things to share…like a recipe.

How about one today?

Trish’s High Protein Pudding

  • 2 scoops protein powder
  • 2 c skim milk

1 pkg. Chocolate Sugar-Free Fat free Pudding

Place milk and protein powder in blender. Blend. Add pudding mix and blend again until blended well. Pour into 4 glasses and chill. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for stopping by…I appreciate it sooo much.

Until next time…

Visit To The ER

Good morning!

It is a wild and whacky Wednesday here. Had a headache Monday and Tuesday...not certain why. THEN on top of that my oldest... 17 years old male...had a BMX biking accident and we wound up on the ER last night around 6.

It happened to be REALLY busy, so much do I needed to go get my younger 2 from my gal pal Val's place AND pick Kevin up from work. This was now 8:45pm.

That's what I did just as he finally got taken back. I spoke with his nurse...signed consent forms and let them know his Dad would be returning to remain with him until it was determined the extent of his injuries.

Soooo I got home, got my youngest to bed and then took Tylenol PM to help with headache AND to be able to sleep. And sleep I did! This morning when I woke...headache was gone!! Yay!

It turns out 17year old has a severely sprained elbow! He has to keep it in a sling, iced, warm soaks and pain killers. Then he needs to see an orthopedic surgeon next Wednesday to follow up and see what therapy he needs to do to get it all fixed up!! Teenage boys!! Ugh!

He is nasty on pain killers!! Man, glad it knocks him out after about 15 minutes. Otherwise life here would not be pretty...for him!! ;-)

How have my numbers been:

Monday~ 72oz. Water

95g. Protein

Tuesday ~ 48oz. Water

77g. Protein

Pretty good.

Today, will be good...I'm going to make sure of it!

You are the best supporters ever!!! Thank you.

Until next time...
