It's a Girl!

Saturday, September 20, 2014

Miss Elizabeth is on the way. Here she is, getting ready:

In girl-like fashion, she kept her legs crossed making it difficult to determine, but they finally figured it out. She'll have another photo op next month when my daughter visits the mid wife.

Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad

Sunday, September 14, 2014

We had a fabulous day for a train ride yesterday. emoticon   We went to Elbe, Washington and rode the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad.  It's a 2 hour trip with a stop at a museum.  The museum has restrooms and picnic tables,  but no food vendors. If you ever go, check out Groupon for a 50% discount and bring some snacks. emoticon

We had lunch afterward and there wasn't much in the menu that was in my smoothie plan.  I settled on the portobello mushroom "burger" and side salad, which was a good choice.  The half of bun and Swiss cheese were the only items not in the plan (and probably the oil they sautéed the onions in). But really,  in comparison to what I used to eat,  this was a good choice!   emoticon

My daughter and her boyfriend stayed for dinner,  so I made broiled tilapia parmesan with canned mixed greens and couscous.  Eating two meals is definitely not in the modifed cleanse rules,  but this is me,  living my life! The greens were high in sodium,  so I had very little.  Overall,  it was a pretty lowfat, low cal, non smoothie day.  I KNOW I can do this. .. because I AM!!
emoticon I am emoticon

We did a fair bit of walking,  but a heck of a lot more sitting!  I intended to workout last night,  but conked out at 8 pm.  emoticon

Here are a few pics of the day, only one of me because those are all on someone else's phone!

Obligatory shot of Mt. Rainier

My daughter's growing family

Tickets please!

All aboard!
