Day 2

Day 2 down. Day Lada-Lada to go.

I kept to my 34 points yesterday! Heck yeah! And, my scale showed it in one day. You know I weigh myself daily, right? And, I write it down. I know there is controversy on this but I want to know what is going on every day even when it’s bad. I do not expect a major shift in my weight but I like to know even to the oz which way the pendulum is swinging. It’s just an awareness thing. Either way (gain or loss),  I start the day out very good, with renewed determination and a desire to be as healthy as I can. I ain’t saying how long that plan stays in place but I try.

So, it wasn’t a crazy loss but enough to know I was on the right track. Remember this is the 2nd day I’ve been good about keeping to my diet. Happy Happy Dance! This is just such a victory since I have been struggling to get on the wagon. Now, it is day 3 and have to keep on a roll.

Tomorrow, we leave for vacation that includes a road trip. We’ll be on the road for almost a day. I have meticulously planned our beverages and snack cooler. I’m taking water, crystal light and will have some beef jerky. I will not be eating crap on the road. I even put a post on the Facebok page, Weight Watchers . . . . One Day at a Time, sking for traveling snack options to get some more ideas.

A few of them are:
Grapes/Fruit
100 calorie pack of cinnamon roasted almonds, hard boiled eggs, cut up veggies
string cheese and apple slices
Sugar free jello.
My fav go to snack is laughing cow light Swiss cheese wedges w cherry tomatoes and these new pretzelthins everything bagel
Yogurt
Cheese and grapes
Apples; cut up veggies
Veggie stix’s

Enough of the diet talk. We got some nature to talk about.

EASTER EGGS

Remember the topsy turvy tree? Remember the bird nest?

Very exciting. We’ll be watching this as nature unfolds. The mama could not have picked a safer place.

We have baby tomatoes in our regular topsy turvy hangers!

My mom planted some Gladiola bulbs and they are sprouting. And, that makes her happy.

By the way, she hates Pharrell Williams’ Happy Song. It’s just everywhere! I still bounce when it comes on but she gets a stank look on her face.
