I know you all are most likely getting tired of photos of the kids and I but what the heck. Yesterday was Lyla's real birthday so my DH and I took the kids to an antique race car place. They loved it and then we went where Lyla wanted to go for lunch...her favorite place, Chick Filet. Lyla was a little mad at me as she is a food hound and I ordered her 4 mcnuggets instead of 6....but thought for a 6 year old 4 was enough....poor thing is still addicted to food. All she thinks about it seems....but we lived through it as she ended up eating half her brother's sandwich as well. But we didn't allow desert as they were all going to to out with the ex-wife/other grandma for dinner as well.
But we had a good time and it gave "mommy" time to relax at home alone....with her sinus infection.
I do hope all of you are doing just great. Have a good, good Friday.
Great time with Lyla for her "Last day 5 celebration"....we had fun for our special time. She loves crab so we went to a place called Big Fish and she had crab cake and I had delicious Mahi with spinach. Very yummy....was surprised though that after eating out I dropped 1/2 pound so now down 103.5....plenty of room to eat out again today. DH and I will take both kids out and about today and Lyla wants to eat at Chick Filet where I believe I can find GF. our DIL is sick with cold and sinus thing and I am trying to stay away from here....washing hands and such. Always scary with me on autoimmune suppressants. trying not to breath when she coughs....she doesn't cough into her arm....and I wish she would be more careful around the kids so they don't end up with it......but I keep my mouth shut and try to stay away.
Lyla's real birthday is today so her Daddy made her favorite breakfast of French toast and then we opened gifts. Fun. So we will take the kids so "Mommy" can rest today until the evening when they all will go out to dinner with the ex-wife which we are going to pass on.
I do hope you all are doing great today. So very chilly here today. Burr! Going to get up to 50 today...not warm enough for me. So I will dress warmly.
So the tradition that I started with grandson a couple of years ago where we go out to lunch just he and I to celebrate the last day of whatever year it is, is now something my granddaughter requested to celebrate today her last day of being 5. Tomorrow is her real birthday even though we had to have the "parties" last week end due to Easter. Anyway she loves crab so just she and I will go out to eat for a crab meal. Kinda cute that she insists that she just wants it to be "Nama" and her. She asked me if we will still do it when she is 20 and I said "yes" as long as you still like your Nama...teasing her and she said for sure that she would....I of course told her I would remind her of that when she is 20. Too funny.
We had a great time with Grandma Jane yesterday. Great GF pizza. Yummy. But it sure was pouring rain. The kids and I got soaked. But they loved it and were giggling like crazy.
The grandkids and I will go visit awhile then go out to lunch. Should be fun. I definitely have some cushion weight as I weighed in at 104 this morning. So we are going to a cafe type place that has GF pizza which I will have.
Started reading the book, Salt Sugar Fat How the Food Giants Hooked Us and already am appalled. I bet by the time I am finished it I will boycott all packaged foods, which really won't be a big deal for me as I don't really eat them anyway and since I cut them all out of my life I don't crave them at all. Very sobering just the little I have read already.
I hope you all are having a good day
Make good choices today.
I am always interested in various things and saw a book on amazon called Salt Sugar Fat - How the food Giants Hooked us. by Michael Moss.
I know I have blogged before about how my number one tip to anyone trying to lose weight is to treat food like drugs and get off of those things. It really worked so well for me and I wish that I had learned this lesson when I was that fat teenager. Once I went "cold turkey" and got those things out of my system I felt great and have so much more energy. I don't have those foggy feelings and the up and down feelings.
Anyway as I read this book will share anything that I find important or interesting.
Grandkids have school today but then are off on Spring Break the rest of the week. Tomorrow I have planned to take them to my Mom's and we will play bingo and then go out for lunch.
