A good day

Today was an overall good day. I like days like that. Right now, my DS is in bed and we are attempting our first night without the "mimi" (aka binky, pacifier). He decided he wanted to put it way up high so only "ho ho" (Santa) could get it and then ho ho could bring it back to him. So we'll see how this goes. He decided this all on his own. But if he makes it through he will get a piano. Not really, but a small keyboard. He's been asking for a piano, violin, and drums now for over 2 weeks. Maybe I have a Liberachi (sp?) on my hands?? He loves to go to my grandma's and play her piano. That's all he wants to do when he goes there. I used to play the of the biggest regrets I have is giving that up. Wish I still played. So, anyway...say a prayer that we make it through tonight. :) Not sure if I am ready for him to give it up, but if he is then it's fine. It's the only baby thing he's got left.

On to today.... Let's review my goals:

1) I am going to follow diet coke and zinger's plan and use no more than 15 flex points for the week. 0 flex points used today.

2) fruits & veggies--minimum 5 per day--got in 9 today.

3) water--minimum 135 ounces per day--check.

4) exercise--3 cardio sessions and at least 1 pilates. went to the gym this morning for 45 minutes total (35 on the elliptical, 10 on the bike) so that was my 2nd cardio session this week and I already have one pilates session in. I hope to do pilates tomorrow.

My menu for today is pretty good. Lots of fruits and veggies. Love days that are easier than others!

B--oatmeal and a banana--4
L--Subway 6" turkey, apples, and sun chips--10
S--can of pineapple--4
D--Salisbury steak (3), mashed potatoes (3), green beans, "fried" zucchini (1)

4 aps earned and used.

I don't have any deep thoughts for tonight. Tomorrow night we are going to the state fair. ACK!! We are going to eat before we leave and if I have any points left I may get something, but there is nothing that really floats my boat that I can think of. I may have to check to see how many points things are...then I won't want to eat anything! I do love elephant ears, but I would be the only one eating it and I am NOT going to eat an entire elephant ear! 42 points, no thank you!

I promised you all pictures and I will get them up. DH is on the main computer desk and I can't get him off of it (he is working) but still. He has this huge desk and HAS to sit right where the keyboard is for our home PC. Ticks me off to NO END!!!!

Gotta cut this short...DS is crying for his mimi and just came walking in sucking his fingers. If he goes to that, I'll give the mimi back. Dentist said to NOT let that happen. We can throw away the mimi, we can't get rid of the thumbs/fingers!

Have a great night and a wonderful OP Friday and weekend!

What are elephant ears? I have never heard of them. Know what I simply can NOT resist at fairs and festivals (sp) ?????
FUNNEL CAKES!!!!!!!! OMG They are better than sex...well sex with some guys ;-)

I was going to ask what elephant ears were, too. But I'm with Colette - gotta love those funnel cakes!!

I hope you and your DS had a good night and he's able to give up his mimi. Its a good sign that he decided to give it up on his own, right?

I think it's so awesome that you're rockin your goals! Keep up the good work, girl & thanks for the butt kickin! :o)

Your menu looks great, keep that up!! In my opinion Funnel cakes and elephant ears are basically the same thing, except funnel cakes are strung out and the elephant ear is just a big ole chunk of the dough. MMMM...sounds yummy, but definetly not worth the 42 points!
If I don't get a chance to check in again have a great, make that SUPER weekend!!

I did say I was only using 15, didn't I? Hmmm... yah, I suck. I'm already at 25 and my week doesn't end until Tuesday. It's been a rough week around here! Hope yours is better than mine!
