Sally's 80th Birthday

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday was such a fun, fun time. It was a great party and there must have been at least 100 people at Hubby's Mom's house.
I ate breakfast and lunch at home. I had a baggie of walnuts and almonds in my purse and ate some around 4:30 over there while everyone else was eating ruffles and dip. I also ate 1 Midnight Revere chocolate square I had in my purse also.
So I got a bit worried about the menu when I found out what they had planned to serve. It was a Hawaiian theme, so they served margaritas, pina coladas, chicken with teriaki sauce, macaroni salad, white rice and sweet rolls. I snuck a bottle of Merlot in the car so I could have a drink just in case everything was sweet. Good thing I did. I wound up drinking about 2 & 1/2 glasses only filled 1/2 way of course like this.

When the girl came around serving the food, I asked her if there was any veggies and she said just the cabbage under the chicken. So I asked her to bring me some chicken with no sauce and cabbage. I still tasted a little sauce - but not very much at all. I also had 2 small bites of the cake later.
Here are some more pictures:

My thought for the day:

Our Finest Moments

Our Finest Moments Positive QuoteThe truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
