A Fun Birthday...

Good Morning Friends,

I want to just say thank you to all the people who wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday. It was so awesome that so many thought of me. For once in a long while I really did have a great day!
Of course I started off with breakfast;
Around 10am Hubby got a call from work and 3 people called in sick - what? We were supposed to go pick up Maria and go to that deli I talked about. So I dropped him off at work at 11am then went and picked up Maria and the 2 of us went alone.
I tried to take a picture of myself in the mirror while she was getting ready. My new outfit I got the sweater and pants at White/Black store and the boots at Kohls.

It was another beautiful day and the drive to the Deli in L.A. was great with great company - Maria my Step-mom.
This is the Matzo Ball soup - but I cut it up. It comes in one big ball, pickles of course and I only ate 2 tiny bagel chips.
with 1/2 sandwich with chopped liver and corned beef.

The matzo ball and rye bread is not bad for you per-say, just the Good carbs. No fiber or nutritional stuff. But they sure taste good.

After the waitress (who was super nice) had the whole restaurant sing me happy birthday with a small cupcake which Maria and I split. We left with some happy tummies for sure.

We got back to Pasadena area around 2:30 ish I think. And we stopped at a PetSmart to get some dog food for the furry girls and then we stopped at Kohls to return something then back to her house where my sister Lisa was sleeping from working the night shift - she is a nurse. We woke her up, she got ready then We picked up  Hubby from work at 6pm and we all went to PF Changs.

The 4 of us had such a good time.

Maria was pretending that she was drinking wine-lol
 We had chicken lettuce wraps and fried green beans for appetizers. I know the green beans are breaded and fried in oil, but they are so good and worth it to eat a few on my B-day!
I had salmon and asparagus which I shared and I ate a few of hubbys shrimps and broccoli and some brown rice. I did taste Lisa's noodles, a small bite.
Boy I felt like I ate a lot yesterday! Then we had more birthday desert. They have these little individual ones and gave me a free one and they got one too. We all had different ones and had a few bites.

I have been feeling so incredibly bad lately and this was such a fun great day to me. I was with my family had a smile all day. My furry girls sure did miss me when I got home after being gone all day. They both jumped straight on the bed and stared at me while I was getting ready for bed. LOL

Right now its almost 10 am and another beautiful day coming. Around 70 and sunny today. I'm gonna go take the girls on a walk right now and another one later too to make up for not having one yesterday.

Thanks for listening and have a great weekend.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

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.
