A Typical Day

Saturday, March 08, 2014

I'm sorry that I forgot to post yesterday but it wasn't a typical day in my life. I don't go out very often. My husband usually does the grocery shopping for us because I have a difficult time with walking. Actually, the only person it seems to bother is ME.

Because I've had a couple of falls, I now walk so very slowly. LOL, my three year old grandson moves faster while walking then I do. LOL, there's nothing like a grandchild pausing three steps to make sure you're following.

Yesterday was such a beautiful day, and even though I made a very detailed shopping list for my husband (which is my norm) I just wanted to get out. See things and especially be around people. So, I had a coupon for Denny's and my husband and I went out for breakfast. Because I am so very mindful of everything (nutritionally and calorically) that I injest -- I ordered the Senior Omlette (with egg white) and asked for roasted potatoes and I had a bagel with cream cheese. I thoroughly enjoyed the omlette; I had a taste of the potatoes and I ate 1/2 of the Bagel with 1/3 of the portion of cream cheese. And I left the rest on the plate. Now to some that is not a big deal -- but lol it is an all time first for me. In fact, lol I purposefully put the silverware, paper napkin and empty sweetner packets on the plate and put it at the edge of the table.

I'm proud of myself. I not only saved us some money for the cost of our breakfast but I left food on the plate. Now that is an accomplishment for me.

We then went to the store. Because, I wasn't familiar with the layout of the store, I did a lot of walking around - up and down the various aisles. LOL, I also got a price shock with what some items cost. I personally love the Fiber One 90 Calories Brownie Bar (or the Lemon Bar) but $5.00 a box was not a price I felt comfortable in swallowing. I purchased everything (with a few exceptions) on my shopping list and I'm proud to say I walked away with a few dollars to add to my fun jar.

Today is a part of my typical Saturday. So, I'm off to do what I usually do. Thank you for your interest in reading my blog. Take care of yourselves and have and make it a great day.

    I looove Denny's, so hard to be good over there. I used to binge like crazy but now I get grilled chicken (no sauce) with broccoli and potatoes, sometimes corn and water.
    Great job leaving food on the plate, that is so hard for me to do. I try but I always end up leaving the plate spotless lol.
    Have a good weekend!
