coffee/hood's all morning, and a boiled egg about noon

lupper - Olive Garden salad, dressing on the side, zuppa Toscana and I caved, had mussels with a couple of bread sticks...sigh! and a glass of iced tea.
T'was good and I don't regret it...it's only a bit above my goal

containers they packed 'em in.

later had a turnip and a few carrots with a diet soda

S. Soup with cheese bread...

Hope MMary is feeling better today.

MaryMary 01-31-2013 04:39 AM

I am feeling better today. It was part bug and part worry over DD. i got down on my knees, as someone suggested, and prayed, asking God to show my DD His will for today. I turnedd her over to Him. Then I got tough with her. Told her one week of crying was enough and if she wanted to go to college, she had to get her act together. I told her she was tough and could dig down and draw on that strength. So far so good.

B- 8 oz greek yogurt, 8 oz cooked apples
L- 4 oz chicken, 8 oz mushrooms, onion, kale and spaghtti sauce, 8 oz salad, 1 tbsp dressing
S- 4 oz haddock, 8 oz kale, zucchini & summer squash, 16 oz salad, 3 tbsp dressing

Sometimes kids just need that type of push to get out of the pity party and face what ever it is. You are a wonderful mom to help her do that.

Stress can make a body so unbalanced. I know you feel better now after handing that one over to the one above. :heart:
