Happy Memorial Day Today I am thinking of Uncle Steve who was Special OPs in Vietnam before we were officially there. He was captured and water boarded and to this day has trouble getting health benefits because the gov't. won't openly acknowledge his service. A tough sweetheart who just lost his wife of nearly 55 yrs, Aunt Mary. I learned all of this from my husband on the long drive back from DE. We love you, Uncle Steve. Thank You for your service.
EDIT: I do realize that Memorial Day is for remembering those who died in war. Our family has been lucky. Many have served from the Mexican War to Vietnam, but all have come home. I am also thinking today of those who have mourned a soldier.
Sore today from Sat back workout, 666 and basement cleaning. I moved the exercise tower by myself while the boys were at the FH pancake breakfast.
Other than the above, I feel great today. I fasted yesterday until dinner. We had steak, sweet potato and salad. Somehow, I ate over 1100 calories. MMM steak. LOL Today, I am back down the 2 lbs I gained from the binge. I am thinking seriously of doing a 4 hr eating window even on my UP days as much as possible. I would make sure to get my 2000 cals on UDs and continue to do 500 on DDs. I just feel so much more alert and energetic when I don't eat until later. It also makes me less food crazy. I had no thought of binging yesterday. Now this won't work every day, some days I may just be too hungry or something else might interfere. Flexibility is the key. Today, for example, my husband is making a special breakfast for everyone. No way I am missing that.
My husband and both of my boys are in 2 Memorial Day parades. Bill with the FD, Billy and Mike with the HS band. Kevin and I will watch the first and pick everyone up after the second.
