Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

My homage to the 14lbs that I lost on Allan’s DDDY Challenges. A watering can for the vast oceans of water that I have learned to drink and love every day.

Saturday Walkies!

Ahhh Saturday!!! So lovely!

First of all.. by request.. I present to you ... my toes. Orange is my favorite colour (no kidding eh!?) and these are a nice bronze Orange sparkly happy Thanksgiving polish. I love it.

(pardon the socks lines...we were out walking!)

I had a sewing club meeting this morning at 10am. Got up and showered, had my oatmeal and a Starbucks and enjoyed an extended morning social. Stopped in at the Hobby Lobby for a few supplies...omg its like Christmas barfed in there. Gawds!!

Met up with husband for a late lunch/brunch. It was a calorie bomb! We were going walking after and will be having a light dinner, so I am pleased that I'm still going to be well under my calories for the day.

It was funny. It was a 2 egg skillet over veggies and grilled chicken breast and hashbrowns. I got the english muffin (dry) and the holindaise sauce on the side. I had about 1.5T of it with the whole breaky. It was big!!

Happily... I was actually FULL from eating it. Really full. Its 4 hours later and I'm still not interested in eating. In past, I would have had that, then stopped at starbucks right after for a coffee and a pastry of some sort and then been home and thinking about what I was going to be having for my afternoon snack. wow... life is changing.

Tonight we are going to go out for Asian Hot Pot Soup. Its a spicy (you pick how spicy) broth, and then you order veggies, noodle and/or meats a la carte.

We are going for lots of veggies (bok choy and greens etc), mushrooms (hubbys fav) and seafood (scallops, squid and shrimp). You get the extra's raw on a plate. The soup is in a low pot and placed on a hot plate in your table to keep it really hot! You put in the broth what you want, and it cooks in the soup.

Its a really fun meal, leisurely, and engaging. Not to mention... healthy and very low in fat and calories... if you put in the right stuff. :) I'm looking forward to it.

Husband is in the shower as I type. We just finished a 3.25mile walk in the beautiful cool weather. It makes the walking so much nicer and easier... and I think that weight I've lost really showed on our walk. My feet were not as sore as usual. Happy days.

I just love winter here. LOVE IT! back hope is -20 and has been snowing for a week. I seriously can NOT imagine it. Okay, that is all for today. Time to get some relaxing in with a book in the bathtub. Oh... and more water!!!

Food today is:

Your toes are awesome! I am not daring - I go for the standard red or dark pink or french look every time. The orange looks goooood.

And you sound like you had a great day. Enjoy the Hot Pot. That place is the bomb. I'm about to go make my oatmeal now.
