Bad Dreams again….

Crazy night mares have returned….its the same one that was haunting my sleep last week, however it took a turn in my favor..I learned how to kill the creatures that were after me…water melts them….don’t ask…I don’t even watch horror movies or anything close…so I spent most of my time in the shower in my dream spraying them….I was able to wake up from it and apparently since I learned how to destroy them in no longer haunts me…I went back to sleep and was able to sleep without incident the rest of the night….it did take a toll on my deep sleep so I have been fighting sleep all day…but the day is coming to a close and I will be in bed soon….yeah!!!

On a calorie intake note…I have done well today…still under the 1200 Calorie quota and have had sufficient amount of food.  I am not hungry nor craving anything…had over 32 ounces of water including my morning coffee so I also met that quota…feeling good about life…

until tomorrow…

Balanced….yet again

well I had a bad night last night…getting up to early is taking a toll on my eating habits….maybe that’s just an excuse but it happened just the same…so I tried to stay up late so I wouldn’t be awake so early made it to 1a…however, didn’t work, I stayed in bed after I woke up at 5a, 6a, 8a and I had a phone call at 10a so crawled out of bed….been a great day still have over 300 calories and its 8p…so I have done well today…I must say that it helped to have an email from another blogger, http://megnocero.com/    Master a healthy habit

well worth reading, It talked to me and set me back on my journey…so thank you Meg….and thank you,

http://simplelivingover50.com/ for reposting her post to your blog….

Everything else is going well…my son and his wife are having a trip of a  life time, he has been texting me and sending me pictures….so I feel loved and blessed to have such a thoughtful son…

looking forward to Wednesday….so until then…

And they are off…

My son and his wife are in the air on their way to Europe for an intense filled 3 weeks…several countries….my anxiety has been a bit on the high side, but seeing the plane tracker and they are finally on their way has helped…I stayed up last night until after 1am last night waiting for them to come over and bring all their electronics for us to baby-sit…LOL  I tended to keep eating until they got here last night….I went over my calories by, well lets just say a lot, went to bed and beat myself up, but woke up feeling a little silly for being so hard on myself, however it was kinda stupid to overeat because your kids are going on a trip….when I thought it through it was really silly to be so anxious for them… needless to say I have counted every morsel that went into my mouth today…still under the quota…yeah….

I should explain why I am so anxious over this trip…my son is my youngest, and most headstrong child…I am so glad he married his counterpart.  LOL…she also has traveled, so she is experienced with Europe….she will keep him reined in and hopefully out of danger…I should probably have more faith in my son….he has a good head on his shoulders and has, to my knowledge ever done anything to stupid….but we all know that we kept all those fun tidbits from our parents…I am wishing them a wonderful trip of a life time and can’t wait to see them upon return…I am challenging myself to stay under my calorie quota the entire time they are away….I hate to think I am a crazy mother….but perhaps if the shoe fits I must wear it.

until tomorrow

High Noon English Tea

I had a wonderful late mothers day with my children and their spouses, whom I feel are my children also….couldn’t have asked for a better setting, our very own English Tea Room, my tea was coconut, yummm and I had the Harry Potter lunch, grilled cheese, quiche and a wonderful warm scone with cream cheese and home made jam…a little hard on the calories but well worth it !  I came home and carefully added making sure I didn’t miss a crumb to my calorie counter….still left me enough calories for a wonderful bowl of vegie soup with chicken for dinner….so all in all a wonderful day….I am left feeling loved and cared for by my family….and under calorie total for the day….whooo hooo……until tomorrow….
