Sweet Sunday.

Well, I was super busy yesterday and somehow time got away from me and I didn't post. I got up early, got kids breakfast, cleaned the house, did the dishes and took off to run errands.  My son joined me and we had a nice and rare opportunity to spend some time alone. We went to Sam's and picked up some groceries.

Back home, we got busy trimming shrubs and weeding flower beds in the front yard. It's great exercise. I did some walking also with the kids. After that it was time to cook dinner. I made a big pot of spicy chili. We sat down with yummy stuff just in time for the OU game.

Luckily I have a strong stomach because the outcome of that game coulda made me lose my dinner. Can't believe we lost. I won't even go into details on what we did wrong just to say, poor play calling and poor execution is at the root of the problem.

I did well with food yesterday. Had egg scrambled with canadian bacon, peppers and onion with wheat toast. For lunch I had a PBJ and watermelon. Dinner was chili with the low fat corn bread. Calories were a little over 1300. I have trouble getting all my water in on weekends. But I got in 96 oz, maybe a little more.

Today we have planned a lot of house work, yardwork and even a little cooking, just for fun.  I usually try to cook on the weekends since I have more time and it makes leftovers for the week.  Today, I plan grilled pork loin stuffed with cranberries and pear with cranberry-pear-pomegranate sauce.  I picked up some fresh cranberries and pomegranate so it sounded yummy.   I haven't figured out the sides, but I'm thinking roasted sweet potatoes and salad.

Of course later the Cowboys play and I'll be tuning in despite the fact that they will likely suck and lose. But, I am no fair weather fan and I will take my bitter with the sweet. Besides it might be amusing.

Hope you all have a fabulous Sunday.


  1. Just found your blog. I look forward to following your progress.

    Keep focused!

  2. Keep up the good work! You sound like an awesome person!

  3. Oh yum, that found sounds soooo good. And what a nice way to spend the day, hanging with family and doing some chores (that also burn up calories, double win!). Hope the rest of your week goes as smoothly. Now I'm off to drink some more water, like you!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend. Mine are quiet and long. It's my workweek since hubby works 40 hours between sat, sun and monday. I basically fly solo with 2 kids all weekend.

  5. Uhhhhh I hope that you found the Cowboys game "amusing." Ha! :-) What a game.


Progress to TouchDown and GOALLLL!!
