Deep snow here...so I'm not going anywhere and it's a good thing that I don't have cabin fever....so I feel lucky about that......After a couple of days doing battle with pizza...I am craving very simple foods like fruit and veg.  It  always seems to work that way for me...it could have gone terribly wrong and started a upward slide with the scale......but it didn't.  I'm happy to know that a couple of days of some potentially dangerous eating could end like this...and it gives me hope that I can do that occassionally in the future and not ever have things really get out of hand in a big way. 

Relying on how clothes fit has been a big help over the last coule of years...........while I have occassionally looked at the scale to make sure I was heading in the right direction....the clothes don't lie and it's easy to come to conclusions with that.......My shirts are requiring sleeves to be rolled up even more than before...I like big shirts...but these are almost too big now.  Baggy pants are a big gripe of mine...never could stand baggy pants and I have several pair that have to go soon...they are just getting on my nerves.......so time to go through my clothes again........There will still be enough in my closet so not going through and trying on older clothes just yet but I can see that I will be wearing clothes soon that I haven't fit into for many years......

I just want some simple, easy meals today.....and a fritatta or omelette will be for breakfast in awhile...with lots of veggies......funny how pizza affects me now....if I see it...I want it...and then i want to get back to the healthier stuff after that......and boy does pizza make me want to drink water...just good to know I can splurge on that stuff and get back on track.

Breakfast coffee, sf syrup a 2 egg omelette with 5 mini peppers and salsa = 4 points and 162 calories

Yup...dressing was an adventure this morning.......my clothes are too big and I'm done wearing clothes that don't fit....so I guess I will spend my day digging some old ones out.  The power and wifi keep going off and on..yet technically it's a snowy but beautiful calm morning.......as I write this...the wifi just cut out again so I don't dare try to send it right now.......Our power company sent a letter that they will be working on lines monday and tuesday.......but this is sunday...weird.......so shut offs for the next couple of days........it's winter...I wonder if they consider hours without furnaces....UGH.......a year or so ago we watched a program about people in alaska who spent a large part of the year in cabins and hunted for food and were totally isolated and were dropped off by planes......sometimes I feel like we are in alaska here...LOL......overly dramatic...but yet...it can be so isolating sometimes...........but I love it most of the time.....and the rest of the time I'm a bit uncomfortable with it.......power is undependable today.....better sign off.



Donkey on 01/19/2020:
Even though you are not having good internet today, I hope you will take pictures of the rest of your meals.

It is so cold here. Nothing is working properly.

Horn_of_plenty on 01/20/2020:
nice job on your omelette, it looks super. i think i may start making omelettes, even for lunches!

Bigger snow coming and we plan to finish the kitchen Island this morning.....feeling great...slept like a log and no headaches for days......we will be at home today and staying off the roads.

Yesterdays pizza trial was a learning experience......my favorite pizza controls me...I ate half yesterday...and wanted more...deflected that with eating something else...and stayed full all night.  so it worked out......got up this morning and the other half of that pizza was controlling my mind...decided to just eat it for breakfast...so put it on a plate...nuked it for a couple of minutes and took the pic........pizza is gone now......I had taken a pic this morning and was so afraid that I would post yesterdays pic accidentally that I decided to delete yesterdays from my phone.......and then right ahead and deleted todays and I can't get it back...so I'm posting yesterdays again because they are exactly the same portions........apparently I'm in a pizza coma...........I'm kind of shocked at how certain foods can control me...and then again...I'm not.  So here is yesterdays pizza that looked exacly like this mornings pizza...LOL

pizza = 14 points and 480 cals and coffee with sf syrup = 0 points and 2 cals.

And here is a pic of my coffee cup to keep this legit!

Now I am going to go research the possibility of retrieving things from the iphone trash....UGH!  Apparently there is a way to retrieve photos deleted within the last 30 days....but that option isn't showing up on my phones list.....I will be so much more careful in the future...at least moving them to the computer first.....live and learn.


cod, corn casserole, bagel, spray butter , banana and blueberry tea = 16 points and 629 cals

1,181 cals so far

Got the kitchen island put together but 3 pieces of it are damaged.....Using it anyway for now while we wait for the replacement pieces are sent.  Spent the morning on that.

Dinner was 0% plain greek yogurt with sf syrup and a cup of coffee. = 2 points and 122 cals...

Staying up late to watch some videos and ended up eating again....

37 points and 1,105 cals of brats and pizza

Today s cals = 2,348........obviously a food fit and pizza made it possible.....I really need to keep that out of the house...although if today is anything like in the past....a huge food day like this could very well end with a loss on the scales...because I have been eating so many low cal days in a row.........

Donkey on 01/18/2020:
I think it's ok if you used an older picture to reflect what you had this morning. I mean, one half of the pizza is pretty much the same as the other half.

Good for you for posting! Food speaks to me too sometimes. I should think of a diversion tool to use to break up the "calling".

bearcountrygg on 01/18/2020:
I've been in my phone trying to retrieve the deleted pic...but I guess because I don't use the cloud ( I usually just transfer from my phone to computer if I want to keep a pic)...it's gone....This will have to do....I was so busy trying to make sure I didn't repost yesterdays pic that I messed the whole thing up....This one will have to do...just different plates...LOL....I want to keep the pic thing going because it is really working for me...but all along I have been afraid I would forget the pic and eat...but never considered deleting accidentally...frustrating...I need to get over the need to post this perfectly....and today was the wakeup for me.....I need to just do the posting as best I can and forget the mess ups....onward and downward...LOL........That pizza is gone now...but I need to also break up the connection and find a different way to deal with it....I guess I'm not there yet.....I really could have put it in the freezer....I guess I'm not one to throw food away...maybe I need to work on doing that.....Thanx for understanding.

Donkey on 01/18/2020:
Lovely pictures! You managed quite well today - and I like how you started out with a larger meal and ended with a lighter meal. Most of my days (especially workdays) are the opposite!

bearcountrygg on 01/18/2020:
It got worse later though......stayed up late and ate again...apparent food fit.

Donkey on 01/19/2020:
I wouldn't be so hard on yourself for the extra meal. Dinner was kind of light. I still think it was a very good day for you.

Well there is snow everywhere...and the roads are bad...d said he may just go shopping later today and that would be fine with me.  We are about halfway done putting the kitchen island together and I love it...it's exactly what we needed...no more complaints about the small kitchen.....today...i'm getting things together to put in it...when it's done.  Ordered some plactic bins for D's snacks...I don't really want to be tempted by his and I have enough of my own to use up....this way I can also repack his bins with what he needs as they empty out ( I do keep up with his blood sugar levels because he is diabetic yet he needs some carbs to keep his energy up...so it's a balance...and I put his snacks in his cupboard accordingly...when his glucose is high I take some specific things out...when he is level i add some back...( keeps him happy and healthy and doesn't make him feel like he is missing out on anything).......

Breakfast = 2 slices of 35 cal potato bread, spray butter, the last of the turkey pepperoni, 1 serving of Pioneer Woman roasted vegetable egg bits, and coffee with sf syrup = 9 points and 302 calories

Well...I ended up braving the snow ans went grocery shopping so D didn't have to...and rds were nasty but it worked out okay.   Loaded up on things for the freezer that will last us quite awhile...........so I missed lunch....and when we finally did get around to eating it was 2 1/2 hours later than usual...and I was starving......so I had 1/2 of a thin chicken alfredo pizza...and I was still hungry,,,and I considered stopping the food pics because this was just plain embarassing....I wanted more of that pizza...but decided on something else to fill me up...which was 2 of the once frozen ham and cheese sandwiches...and then I see D with a candy bar...and I had to have one of those too......well.......that was a lot of food and I'm positive that I will pay for it later...but I'm not hungry anymore...so there is that........and here are the pics.......1/2 of a thin crust chicken alfredo pizza, 2 Launch Box ham and cheese sandwiches and a candy bar = 30 points and 920 cals.

Sorry the pic is sideways and my finger is on the lens.....LOL

I seriously considered stopping the pics....but decided that would be self defeating...so here ya go.

It actually all worked out just fine...and am no where near hungry and will end the days eating with that double lunch/dinner with 1, 222 cals and it's the perfect number for me.


innerpeace on 01/17/2020:
Eww snow! We are supposed to get some in NE Ohio too. I keep saying I hope it gets here soon or else we will have snow in May...it has happened before. With me being from Oklahoma I am used to it being 70-80 degrees starting in May, not waiting for snow to melt. Your breakfast looks great. I remember eggs. Have a great weekend.

bearcountrygg on 01/17/2020:
We are enough farther north that we do get lake effect snow too and that makes it worse....but it's winter....and we probably have at least 8 more weeks of it at least...and maybe 12......looking forward to spring.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/17/2020:
your breakfast is my type of satisfying :)

sorry you getting the snow, must look beautiful!

bearcountrygg on 01/17/2020:
Boy...the only veggies I had today were in those little egg bites...need to fix that tomorrow. The snow is pretty......but on the roads....yuck.

Donkey on 01/17/2020:
I'm glad you didn't stop the pictures. Accountability is key. (I could have used some of that tonight...) We're here to support you!

I'm sure we all understand what happened at lunch. It ended well, don't you think? I do!

bearcountrygg on 01/17/2020:
It did end well at 1,222 cals...right where I need to be.....

Got up after 6 this morning........no more naps for me.....night time is my maijor sleeping time now and I love it. 

Im have been grousing about my little kitchen here for 5 years....the other day I went online and ordered a rolling kitchen island and it arrived yesterday...i don't believe I will ever complain about this kitchen again.....we needed this.......... 

I wish the roads would get cleared here......right now it's frozen lumpy slush....and we need some specific groceries........hmmmmmm

coffee with sf syrup so far.......0 points and 2 cals

Well....more snow...so definatly not going to the store....then sinfo.....son called needing some info........and I'm staying home.

Breakfast was unicorn cereal, unsweetened almond milk, and Naked coconut water = 16 points and 338 cals

Lunch was cod, mac and cheese and peas and carrots= 9 points and 353 cals

Dinner was a steamfresh  superfoods medley of kale, sweet potato, garbanzo beans and rice and a Built Bar = 12 points and 430 cals

Total cals for the day = 1,121...and no plans to eat anymore tonight....


innerpeace on 01/16/2020:
Ugh, we are due for some colder more wet weather coming up. We bought Unicorn cereal for the girl, I think there is some still in the cabinet. Your lunch looks good - I think Cod is the only fish I don't like.

bearcountrygg on 01/16/2020:
Unicorn cereal is surprisingly good and only 110 cals a serving....we are really getting the snow...at least 4 inches in the last 2 hours...the cod was very mild...and quite tasteless really....I had put everything but the bagel seasoning on it for flavor.....

Got up feeling good and full of energy.  I think I have broken the nap in bed every afternoon problem, Over the last 2 weeks I've resorted to that once but not since....for days I kept falling asleep in a chair as soon as I sat down...but over the last couple of days there is none of that.  I'm going to bed earlier...usually between 9 and 10 ( always read or do sudoko or similar)....and then fall asleep....usually get up a couple of times a night for bathroom breaks and fall asleep again as soon as my head hits the pillow.  Got up this morning at 6...which is a bit late for me...and I love it....I am now getting 7 to 8 hours at night, in bed of solid sleep.......sleep training works for me...and it took 2 weeks.   Just noticed that I haven't had a headache for at least a week......and that is amazing for me.  I'm also wanting to keep busy...not wanting to sit down for more than 10 minutes or so and then I get antsy to move around.  Things are getting done without the timer because I want to.  I will say that I wanted a snack so bad last night...but I resisited because I didn't want to revisit that habit and I didn't want to post it here........THANKS LADIES...YOU KEPT ME FROM SNACKING!!!!!

Breakfast was 2 scrambled eggs with tomatoes and peppers, 2 slices of sprouted bread toasted with spray butter and and 1 cup coffee with sf syrup. = 8 points and 309 cals

Lunch was a bit much....leftovers that I still have problems throwing out...so I'm making room in my pooints for them.......probably a bad habit that I will never be able to break.  With just the 2 of us here and him being quite picky...and me being a human garbage can...well....it just is.

Lunch was beef stroganoff with meatballs, 2 mini peppers, a large can of V-8 and a vanilla Built Bar = 881 cals and 27 points ( good thing my points rolled over to a new week today).......but...I am full and will probably stay that way for many hours.

That last meal stuck with me so not eating dinner tonight.....so my total cals for the day are 1,160

innerpeace on 01/15/2020:
I need sleep training. I will try to get to bed earlier myself because 4 1/2 - 5 hours ain't cutting it for me today.

bearcountrygg on 01/15/2020:
I made it one of my resolutions and I'm sticking to it....and over time...that became the new habit...I feel like now I could probably nap here or there as long as I don't do it daily.........BUT....I don't want to mess it up either.....breaking a habit can be so hard.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/15/2020:
Your meals are looking great everyday! scrambled eggs looks wonderful and reminds me of my Sunday morning with my folks :)

bearcountrygg on 01/15/2020:

D had to take his best hound dog to the vet last night....and we got bad news...x-rays show cancer of the jaw............will be dosing him with antibiotics and pain killers for the next 2 weeks and then make a decision.....sad times here.

Coffee so far, = 0 points and 2 cals

Continuing with housework today....mnoving furniture around makes me feel like I am in control when I'm really not........it's a calming thing for me....I see lots of cleaning and moving and reorganizing in my day today..........continuing with using up what is here......at least now when we open the freezer...things don't fall out on the floor...and that's a good thing.   Finding forgotten things in there and that's a good thing too......

Had a BIG breakfast but oh well......it is what it is...counted it and moving on....

Breakfast = 2 slices sprouted bread toasted, spray butter, peanut butter, 2 cuties a cup of cracklin oat bran ( finished off that box) and unsweetened almond milk = 759 calories and 26 points.....apparently I threw a food fit...but still in points and cals....

I can see the stress eating in that....had more than a serving of high point cereal to empty box......1 cup of almond milk was too much for that...poured it in anyway.....old habits die hard.  Recognizing it is something though.

Lunch was the last whole wheat hot dog bun with a starkist tuna salad pouch, potato chips and freeze dried corn packet = 15 points and 517 cals

Dinner...wasn't hungry but needed to get some veggies in and the tomatoes are getting kind of old so had a few of those, 2 mini peppers, and orange and 2 small meatballs = 4 points and  237 cals

Total for the day is 1,513

No more eating for the day...just water.



Donkey on 01/14/2020:
I'm sorry to hear about your hound. No easy decisions.

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
Yes..he hasn't been eating well since november and the vet couldn't find anything wrong then so she gave him antibiotics and something to help his appetite...now...it is more obvious

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/14/2020:
I'm so sorry to hear about the best hound's predicament. that is so sad!

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
Wev are sad about it...he's such a good boy and smart...

legcramps on 01/14/2020:
So sorry to hear about your dog :(

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
Sad times for us...he is a good boy!

innerpeace on 01/14/2020:
I can't even imagine about your hound. If/when I lose my dog, I will be so crushed. They are like family.

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
Yes they are...D says he wouldn't trade that dog for a new truck....

happy-1 on 01/14/2020:
I'm so sorry about your dog... That is really tough... I know most canine mouth cancers are surgery + radiation, but it's a lot to put a dog through. I'd be crushed. I'm carting around my ancient dog who is incontinent, having a hard time walking, and pacing around with dementia because I can't bear to part with her. I wouldn't trade her for a truck either. Hugs.

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
We are hours away from a oncology vet and it would be a prolonged treatment....so more than likely that won't be an option...there is also limited success with that.....we will see. They become such a part of the family.

Donkey on 01/14/2020:
You're doing extremely well, even if your calories and points are a little higher. Don't let the higher numbers throw your efforts off the deep end.

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
I do let my cals go up and then down at times...I always find that shaking things up is a huge help for my losses....so it will all work out.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/14/2020:
food looks fun and tasty...sometimes good to have a little more :) just like the reason you wrote to donkey above.

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
Yes....I do alot better if I keep the cals moving around a bit...I'm best at 1,200 but then I need to have a day here and there up to 1,255....

Horn_of_plenty on 01/14/2020:

Not sure what we are doing today.......

Breakfast for me was 2 slices of Alpine valley honey sprout bread, spray butter, 1 serving Hormel turkey pepperoni and 1 wedge Laughing cow lite swiss = 7 points and 227 cals.

 Super busy morning...phone rang continually....but happy to talk to both sons so that was fine.......getting a bunch of bedding and laundry done....things piling up to take to the homeless shelter ( they like donated bedding).......so feeling like I'm accomplishing things between calls.........fast lunch....would not buy the frozen sandwiches again but had to try them...still more in the freezer though.  Ice cream had frost on top so time to use it up.......

Lunch 2 frozen ready made tiny ham and cheese sandwiches and a carton of breyers = 20 points and 570 cals............

Denny ate early because a dog had to go to the vet....so I ate later and apparently I ate on a kids plate.......LOL....That sure has been around for a long time but it was handy.

Got a lot of odds and ends done today...bed stripped and everything got washed including all pillows including decorative ones, bedspread and blanket and sheets...plus 99% of the regular laundry...slast dryer load just stopped........it was a productive day.

Dinner was 3 potions of baked chicken wings ( 1 1/2).....corn and steak fries = 14 points and 489 cals

Cals for the day = 1,286....and very happy with that.

happy-1 on 01/13/2020:
1 meal of unprocessed foods. 1 meal of processed. 50/50 split so far!

bearcountrygg on 01/13/2020:
Dinner will have to be veggies!!!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/13/2020:
hahaha...we are now eating very much alike! i love that kind of ice cream, and yes i eat the pint as well often. sometimes i will split it up if i'm having ice cream with something else...but the pint is good alone too!

bearcountrygg on 01/13/2020:
I love it too....it had been in the freezer for several months....time to move that along!!

happy-1 on 01/13/2020:
I don't think corn and potatoes count as veggies!

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:
They are veggies but they are starchy veggies....I'm committed to using up what we have on hand before doing more shopping....so they will have to be used regardless.

Donkey on 01/14/2020:
Love the pictures!

bearcountrygg on 01/14/2020:

Well.....I guess yesterday wasn't a total loss food wise...because it reminded me how I feel when I eat too many carbs and not enough veggies.........I just feel fatter today......and I don't like that.....veggies make me feel more comfortable........besides...hopefully I got that craving over with.

Starting with coffee with sf syrup = 0 pts and 2 cals

Weather is not pleasant so will be inside......I have struggled with a small kitchen and really disliked it for the last 5 years........so yesterday we turned the table around, moved some other furniture and i ordered a kitchen island yesterday that I think will finally make me a little happier about the storage...hopefully I will quit complaining about lack of kitchen storage.  I'm even boring myself...and I know D will be happy to not listen to that anymore.

Thinking about it now I suspect that was what was behind my carb fest yesterday........

Breakfast was an apple and a breakfast sandwich made with Brownberry Oven whole wheat sandwich thin, spray butter, 1 egg, 1 serving Hormel turkey pepperoni and 1 slice Kraft american cheese = 10 points and 448 cals

Breakfast turned out perfect numbers wise and was very filling, and with three proteins in the sandwich hopefully it will stick with me until lunch...I wish every days turned out like this.


Lunch was 4 thin slices of beef deli meat, 4 steak fries, corn and brussel sprouts/olive oil , an orange and a peanut butter Built bar = 13 points and 576 cals.

Evening snack...not hungry enough for a meal = V8 vegetable juice and harvest snaps green pea crisps mini pkg = 5 points and 160 cals.

1,184 cals for the day


Donkey on 01/12/2020:
Your breakfast sandwiches always look so yummy!

Weather is not pleasant here either, but we never did get the "big snow" that they predicted. I KNEW that if I went out and bought a snowblower, that not much would come of our storm system.

bearcountrygg on 01/12/2020:
The snow here isn't as deep as they predicted for us either although it continues to come down but lightly. Those sandwich thins make them so easy...they hold together really well.

Donkey on 01/12/2020:
Meant to mention yesterday that those mini "Kind" bars are so cute! How many points/calories are in one of them?

bearcountrygg on 01/12/2020:
The mini kind bars are 4 points each or 2 for 7 points...and are 100 cals each...tasty and probably high because of the nuts and chocolate.....they are tasty.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/13/2020:
I'm a big fan of pop chips too. they are so tasty.

i also love the dried peas snack above! it must have been pretty satsifying snack with veggie juice...i cannot do the veggie juice much, it's strong to me.

great, healthy choices. nice menu!

bearcountrygg on 01/13/2020:
Thanx....I prefer the peas.....and I have always liked V*...we usually have that around for times when we think we didn't eat enough veggies that day......pop chips are kind of new to me....I think this was my first bag of them...but I've heard a lot about them...will likely become a evening snack if one is necessary...but I'm still trying to avoid snacks....snacks can get me into trouble.

Ice storm going on here...everything is a skating rink. 

Wen to the freezer looking for something for my breakfast.......( feels good finally cleaning that out)....found a couple of  ziplock bags with pancakes.........warmed all of them...but not everyone in the picture was edible.......tossed what wasn't......so did have 5 and tossed 2 in the trash.

5 pancakes, less than 1/4th cup Mrs Buttersworth lite, spray butter, coffee and sf coffee syrup = 14 points and 440 cals

Need to incorporate more fruit and veggies today....lately meals have been carb heavy and I'm actually getting tired of those.

First snack of the year.......and I'm happy that I was able to put it off this long....proves to me that I don't have to just eat on a whim....that it's okay to ignore the desire to snack....but this morning a snack was needed...so i went with it.

1 mini bag of pop corner kettle chips and 2 mini kind bars = 11 points and 320 cals

Lunch was a pork chop, roasted brussel sprouts including olive oil , mixed vegetables and an orange = 5 points and 310 cals

Well so much for the fruit and veg for the rest of the day...i was STARVING!!!!!!  Fruit and veg was not going to satisfy that........so I ate what I was craving.....

Dinner = unicorn cereal, unsweetened almond breeze, a caramel built bar and a cup of tea = 14 points and 362 cals

Calories for the day was 1,432



Horn_of_plenty on 01/11/2020:
What an enjoyable, tasty breakfast :)

I hope the storm dies down soon!

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
Looks like it will last all weekend.....didn't eat all of the pancakes...2 were inedible...LOL

Donkey on 01/11/2020:
Our storm is hitting the area today. It started raining yesterday, and that same rain (on and off) is turning icy with a little snow. Big Snow coming later today...

I was just speaking with another co-worker about how I eat a lot of vegetables. I'm starting to crave carbs - LOL... I know what you mean though. It's easier to do in the summer, warmer weather.

Looking forward to the other pictures you'll post today :-)

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
I'm craving veggies now....and more fruit.....the rest of the day I will make that happen.

You'll get no criticism from me. You had more fruit and vegetable. That is a good thing. They didn't hold you, and that's fine. They don't hold me either! Which is why going vegetarian never works for me, as much as I would like it to.

Keep going with the fruits and vegetables! They have other benefits.

Freezing rain here for the entire weekend and a sheet of ice already...so we will be stuck at home.  Plenty to do here so that isn't a bad thing............

Breakfast was coffee, sf syrup Special K Nourish cereal cup with almonds and cranberries, 2 sprouted bread toast, spray butter, apple = 11 points and 407 cals........I wish all meals would work out this well number wise.

Lunch was easy...I accidentally ruined the seal on a Microwavable mac and cheese so I went ahead and made that......so lunch was a Hamburger Helper microwave cheeseburger macaroni cup with added mixed vegetables and a Well Yes butternut squash and sweet potato sipping soup...= 14 points and 397 cals.

Dinner was leftover goulash and 2 biscuits with 1 slice of Kraft singles, some roast beef deli meat and mustard....30 points and 971 cals

Total cals for the day was 1,775....more cals than I'm comfortable with but then again i do like to keep shaking it up...........no scales, and shooting for fitting into a favorite pair of jeans.........looking forward to that day!!

I keep seeing the really good bread you were buying at an Amazon Go store by me. I will soon buy the bagels i've been meaning to try - high protein bagels. Breakfast looks delightful! Yeah, breakfast tends to be easier to keep lower, i agree.

bearcountrygg on 01/10/2020:
Those Amazon stores look pretty interesting...are they the ones without a check out? The bread is good and organic.

innerpeace on 01/10/2020:
i just love the sprouted bread, I drive extra miles to buy it.

bearcountrygg on 01/10/2020:
I like it in a sandwich and toasted...and love that it's organic too.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/10/2020:
yes, the ones without a checkout - there's one in the city by my workplace lol of course right!?

also, lunch = fantastic!

bearcountrygg on 01/10/2020:
I've seen those stores on TV....of course we would never get anything like that around here...in fact Michigan will probably never see them.....it's a big city thing....LOL...Can you imagine something like that in Detroit...LOL

Donkey on 01/11/2020:
Yes, I think I'm craving carbs, because each one of these photos looks so yummy!

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
Very carb heavy day...and I kind of feel heavier...UGH!
