    Thanks, all. I am having a good time. Enjoyed a bath while looking at quilt magazines, then did some sewing while watching episodes of 'Fringe'. Next up, a little reading.

    Since we have two birthdays in a row in our family, I don't feel too deprived doing a Down Day today. The sashimi yesterday was fantastic. I usually go for lunch, so I was astonished and gratified by the improved selection at the dinner buffet. Yum, yum, yum!

    I am now older

    The actual birthday is a sort of stasis zone. But the day after...officially older. I had a great day, except for some annoying pains. Honey and I went out and got my combo Christmas-birthday present- a Nook. I charged it up and bought two books. Today I will begin figuring it out.

    Well, after I do my chores. The list I made in Siobhan's journal was rather long, so I guess some tidying up will have to be done.

    Eventually.

    Here was yesterday:

    Up at 5:30

    1:30 liverwurst

    3:00 *nap!

    4:30 liverwurst

    11:00 fell asleep (see*)

    Water: 9 glasses
    Walking: 20"
    Pains:18

    I had to take Chloe into the vet for a dip today. Her mange is back. She's a delicate blossom, and stress makes her mangy. Strangely, I think this time she was reacting off the stress over Honey's job a month ago. I need to schedule more cuddle time with her, I think. Salem started yipping up a storm when I took Chloe out of the house and NOT HER! She thought a walk might be going on. There was much sniffing on her behalf when I got back alone. We met another black dachshund at the vet's, and he and Chloe did a polite and friendly sniff greeting. They LOVE other dachshunds.

    Okay, more to report on the food front, what with an Up Day:

    Up at 5:30

    6:30 pork chop, 2 eggs in butter, pumpkin 'pie'

    12:30 beef stew with carrots, celery, tomato, parsnip
    asparagus with butter
    1/2C rote grutze with cream

    4:45 junior vanilla shake from Braum's

    7:15 7 pork/beef meatballs in marinara served over
    zucchini/onion/bell peppers/tomato topped with
    parmesan cheese
    1/2C rote grutze with cream

    Water: 8 glasses
    Walking: 40"
    Pains: 17

    Bed at 10:00

    I have not been getting to bed early enough. I need to keep with the program, here! My sleep is important.

    Having friends over tonight for our quilt group. It is a Down Day for me. I am feeding them pizza things, quiches(Lorraine and Florentine- no crusts, though!), salad, and cheesecake. I'm going to have salad. That will keep me within my 420 calories, and not be too noticeable.

    I am so sad that the pains are still with you.

    What the heck is rote grutze and how do you make it? or would it be better if I didn't know?

    Huh, what happened to my post? I answered y'all yesterday. Okay, here's a repeat:

    The pains are annoying, but I'm sure I will conquer them. Once I figure them out.

    Rote grutze is WONDERFUL! A northern-Garmany dessert, translated as red groats/grits. Made from at least three kinds of red fruit. I use strawberries, cherries, raspberries, cranberries(since I'm in North America!). In germany you might have lingonberries, and gooseberries in the mix. But they are too expensive to get here. Cook 9 parts fruit with one part sugar over LOW heat until thickened, about two hours, scraping the bottom of the pot frequently toward the end. Cool, and serve with heavy cream.

    So good!

    Chica is still here, hanging out, being part of the family.

    Okay, let's see if this post will stay put.

    Down Day Success

    I had my friends over last night and served them salad, quiches, little pizzas, and cheesecake. I had salad and one slice of quiche. My calorie count was a little high, but it was still a great Down Day. Not least, because I didn't stress about it at all, or have hunger issues. Being the hostess, no one noticed what I was eating, so I didn't have to deal with any 'is that all' comments. It all worked our wonderfully.

    Plus, we had a great evening!

    Okay, the rest of it:

    Up at 5:45 still having to hit the snooze- I must go to bed earlier!

    12:15 4oz tilapia, 1t butter

    3:15 4oz tilapia, 1t pesto

    7:15 salad, 1 slice quiche

    Water: 8 glasses
    Walking: 40"
    Pains: 18

    Bed at 11:00 okay, that didn't happen

    I assume you've seen the doctor about these pains? Are you able to associate them to any type of food or activity? Are they stabbing pain, aching pain, burning pain? what part of the abdomen? And radiating pain to the back?

    I'm a little worried...............

    Good to hear you're still taking care of Chica even though you know they going to take her away. What a good neighbor!

    How's the job going for hubby?

    my motivation

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate
    Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato
    Coffee and tea
    Eggs
    Curry
    White potato
    Dairy - including butter

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.
