the bird park

Had a great evening last night with my grandsons. We had spagetti dinner ( their favorite ) and then watched a movie all of us in bed with popcorn. Turkey spagetti and lite popcorn. They didn't even know they were eating healthy! I had made a bed on floor for the 5 year old, but somehow in the middle of the night I was kicked out of my bed to the bed on the floor. It was the only way to get some sleep. I was up my usual time, the butt crack of dawn, and was waiting for them to wake up. We had Kashi waffles, turkey bacon, and strawberries. Then we headed to the bird park. We somehow managed to lost, again. ( I secretly like to get loss, then I get in more steps ) By the time we were almost back to the car, the 3 year old refused to pudge, so I had to carry him. They both said they were ready for a nap.....what a laugh that was! I took some pictures this morning and thought I would share them.
I will admitt I binged yesterday....but on low cal healthy stuff. I did however get to that uncomfortable full stage. Hated it. Wished so bad I hadn't done it. That was before 4pm. I did mange to get back on track, but still felt full when I fell asleep. I weighed at my daughter's. I don't know why I do that it's not right. Anyway, I weighed the same as last week. WW WI is tomorrow night, so we'll see what happens. I am ok with it. Sometimes the death of a loved one, no matter how much of a blessing, can throw me for a loop. I lost my husband on Christmas day in 1996, my dad 10 days later and my mother was gone by September of that same year. It was a rough year. death doesn't scare me, or freak me out. It's being left behind. sometimes.....
Enough of that....all in all feeling good. I am making good choices today. I have made arrangements to get some counseling, and I feel good about that too. Hope everyone is having a beautiful Sunday. I am off to get ready for church. I hope I don't sweat to death today...I'd like to stay the entire time.
Life is good..........stay grateful

    Take care.
