On the Road...

I'm on a road trip right now with some of my kids, doing something important :) Will share when I get back home!

I've been eating Medifast puffs and bars and drinking from my water bottle all day. Dinner was at a restaurant (nothing fancy, not many choices) so I had a large salad topped with turkey breast, a hard boiled egg, and crumbled bacon. I had the blue cheese dressing on the side and dipped my fork into it every so often for taste. I probably used under 2 Tablespoons that way. I drank water.

I also discovered that while I do tend to want something sweet after dinner, a cup of hot tea or coffee hits the spot just fine. So I had a cup of nice hot coffee with Splenda and half & half for "dessert."

Got in rather late, so I have done no exercise at all. We had planned to swim, but the pool's heating element went out where we are staying and I am not up for 65 degree water. I didn't get to do my physical therapy exercises today either... been kinda busy. But I will get right back to that tomorrow.

I feel good, and I think I am turning a corner emotionally back to feeling better. I can see that new fresh life I crave straight ahead, full of activity and joy. I am going for it!

I love coffee or tea after dinner. I usually have a cup of tea every night while I watch the Nightly News.

Glad to hear you are feeling better! :)

I just started reading your blog. I'm glad things are turning around for you. Could you give a little background on yourself? How many kids do you have? Are you married? Do you work? I looked for an "About Me" section, but couldn't find it. Thanks!

So glad you're turning a corner. I think I'll have to get some decaf in the house and try your coffee after dinner idea :-)
