my mommas birthday! and good choices..
well this day couldnt get any better..as stressful as yesterday was..this day was as non stressful as it could be..we had the most fun today..my momma turned 83 today and we enjoyed just being here with her..we were at home til the evening..and i washed her hair and set it and curled it for her..and then did her makeup and her nails were done already..so we had fun..we watched andy griffith show...something g-rated to keep the day going well..and she always enjoys that show..
by 530 we were getting ready to go get the cake and go to the stockade..a buffet mind you..and so we got there and our cousin was saving our area for us..we had already reserved it but she got there and then we all sat down..her sister and brother that is left came with some of their family and so it was a nice little outing..sean didnt get to make it tonight..he will tomorrow..he had to work..but mom got to talk to all of her grandsons ..she has 4 but only 3 living..so she talked to all 3 today..which was very nice..i sent her picture around to everyone on my phone list so the relatives could have a good picture of her on this day..she is 83..and one of the last of the relatives..
i went and got her food..only soft food for her now..she cant chew anymore so i make it up with all soft stuff..i went and got mine and i started out with a salad..i thought maybe if i do alot of salad i wont be so hungry for the rest..and i think i was right on this..when i had walked in to this place..i couldnt believe it ..they had everything i liked..and my old ways of thinking started to come back..but i did well..i said no iam not going to make bad choices...food is not going to defeat me..
and i went in and got my salad..a whole plate of it..and when i ate that i went back thru and got one plate of mostly veggies..i had green beans, and carrots, and broccoli, and some roast beef and a piece of ham..i had one roll and no more..no seconds, no overeating, no stomachache..i did well..i was pleased..i did not over stuff..i defeated my buffet..so i spent 10.00 for it.it wouldnt be worth it to get my moneys worth, because i would be sick and gaining a pound..and then the food would defeat me..so yes i did well..i was proud..
i took a bunch of pictures of everything tonight..so i will post them..we are going tomorrow night to a pizza place..another buffet..sean and his daughter is coming then..so i need to control it then too..i know i can..i did have a small piece of cake with the icing..but i did have the calories coming..so all in all it was a good day..it was such a busy day..i havent been able to do my exercies which i feel bad about, but now it is so late i need to go to bed..so i will go for tonight..have a great sunday! control the choices..
GOD BLESS YOU ALL..
