That's IT - I am officially getting old!!

Good Morning Friends,

I hope you all had a nice Valentines day if you had a special person to share it with. I did but he was working all day.

My Valentine-Anniversary breakfast for myself yesterday was my healthy pancakes and berries. I made 2 more for Nicole cause she came and spent the night but she slept until 12 noon. Must be nice. Then she got ready and left. So I have 2 more for this morning.

 I made another batch of Chocolate-Protein bites. I might try to make these with a raspberry topping instead of the chocolate. I saw a recipe online for a cookie with a raspberry filling but the cookie is made out of dates - which is a NO-NO for us. I will post after I figure it out.
But for now these are probably my FAVORITE!!
 For lunch I tried to made a kind of pocket sandwich using the Masa flour. I didn't do it right but it still tasted good. I made the tortilla into 1 big one and filled it with pasta sauce, cheese and turkey pepperoni and baked it in my toaster oven.
 As you can see its SORRY looking - oh well. I ate a little creamed spinach left over with it.
I just spent the afternoon watching shows I DVR'd then decided to go for a walk with my furry girls. It was such a beautiful day around 70-75. We walked 2 miles and for some reason when I got home around 5pm I felt terrible. My ET's were real bad. IDK, I think I ate enough in the day so I am not sure why. 

I felt like a snack would help so I ate some berries, a pc of cheese and a few bites of some Clemmy's. I was trying to wait for hubby to come home. But he did not make it until 8:30. I told him to just pick up something. I did not want to go out. He brought some chicken strips and fried zucchini. I ate 1 pc of the chicken and some zucchini dipped in ranch and a small gall of wine with him. He's off on Sunday so we can do something then. My body really can't eat that late anymore cause I had gas and of course my weight was up this morning.

Remember a week ago I kept saying my tummy hurt? I should have started my monthly a week ago and My tummy hurt for about 5 days and I could feel my uterus swell like I was gonna get it - but nothing happened. My body is like Clockwork and NEVER skips. Now my tummy feels like it is back to normal. So this February at the age of 54 will be my first EVER time I have not had a period. 

That's IT - I am officially getting old!!

My breakfast this morning was the other 2 pancakes with Nature's Hollow on top,1/2 avocado and berries.
We are still waiting (patiently-or at least trying to be) for the short sale house. Everything else we look at is not as nice in comparison, or needs much more work on it. Hubby talked to the agent yesterday and he said the 1st and 2nd loans are good but they are still working on the 3rd. As far as I know Maria is still planning on moving with us.

I wish you all a great weekend. Do something just for yourself.

This is PurpleRosy signing off...

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. You missed a period, woot! Maybe you are going through the dreaded "change"! You will not miss those periods at all!!!
    If it gives you company, hubby and I did not do anything either. I still don't feel that good and he got the bug while he was out of town. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. We were planning to go see the Bruce Willis movie today, but I'm not sure either of us is up to it:(
    Have a great weekend!

  2. You are too funny...tmi alert...at least you warned us.

    Keep us posted! Tell your hubby to get some rest

  3. We didn't do anything either, just our normal hang out nightly routine. It's good, so no need to change it I guess. Have a good day

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.
