Best Mother's Day EVER

I had a great weekend.

Saturday we took my mom out to her fav steak place for supper. We had reservations at 8:00 (holy lateness!) and the restaurant called at 6:30 to say we could have a table at 7:00 instead! YAY!!

I ate a dif dish than normal, but I had everything that came with the meal, cause we were having a nice night out special. Came home and thought, eh, that was likely all my points for today and my flex, I will just go forward only eating daily points target and maybe activity points. After around 10 minutes, I thought, no, this is your life now. You figure it out and KNOW what you are consuming. So I did, and in the end, I was over 2 points. I exercised them off yesterday. I know this isn't how the program works, but I thought for this one week, it might ;-)

Anyhow, it was a lovely relaxed evening out. My mom enjoyed it and so did we. The food is so good at this restaurant. If I could improve on one thing about how I handled the evening, I would have ordered a red wine instead of a white. Then I would have stuck to one glass instead of the 3 I had. I don't really like red, so it takes me all evening to choke it down. Note to self for next time.

Yesterday, family made me a points friendly breakfast. Scrambled egg with water instead of milk (makes them fluffier), WW bread, 3 slices turkey bacon, 1/2 cup hashbrowns cooked with no oil or butter. Scrumptious. And they cleaned up after. Then daughter cleaned her room and her bathroom. Husband went for a swim with me at the Club and then ALL 3 of US took the dog for a walk up the big hill we live near. Seriously - it was my best Mother's Day.

Tonight I have to clean like a mad woman because tonight I am having my family over for a bbq. Blech. I have to manage this with extreme caution because I weigh in tomorrow. So, I will drop daughter at bus, do groceries, put dinner on, clean, do personal trainer, run, shower and get stunning looking and then host a bbq. Fun times.

A demain! Have a healthy day bloggers.

PS: To the Canadians out there - how do you say "loud" again in French?

PPS: Is anyone but me disappointed with the winner of Survivor last night? And WHY did James have his top on??? I was pretty happy for him though. He is clearly quite popular with the viewing public!


  1. Sounds like a great Mother's Day! Have a fun BBQ tonight.

  2. Glad your weekend was wonderful.

    What a busy day you have planned. Enjoy every minute of it. You'll do great, I'm sure.

  3. Aw glad your mothers day was great! You deserve it!

  4. Ahhh, that does sound nice! Congrats on sitting down and getting serious about what you ate. You're a brave (and wise) soul!

  5. Loud depends on the context. It could simply be "fort" for strong, or "bruyant" for noisy.

  6. Glad you had such a great mother's day!!

  7. Thanks for the comments on my blog. Hope your week is going great! Beautiful day today. What are you going to do outside? :)
