Hello!! It's been so long!

Your travels sound amazing!! And while sometimes during those travels we do a bit of over indulging you definitely seem like you're on the right track! As always you're an inspiration... keep it up!! :)

grannyannie on 04/01/2014:
Thanks! But we travel so often and for so long that my indulging seriously catches up with me -like now!


liza36 on 04/01/2014:
You always get right back to it. After my travels, I have a really hard time getting back to my plan.

grannyannie on 04/01/2014:
Got to get serious! We are travelling a total of about 3 or more months a year.

curry is so good...and can be so healthy! i always get curry when going out for thai....with tons of veggies & squid (not fried). LOVE CURRY :-D and almond milk is tasty too...it's the only "milk" i usually buy bc it's so low cal, but satisfying & mixes well with cereal, on it's own, and in shakes.

grannyannie on 03/17/2014:
Hubby makes very healthy, low fat curries. Different ingredients each time. I like almond milk and also soy milk - same cals. :)


legcramps on 03/17/2014:
I have that whole snacking while watching t.v. problem - it's tough to stop when you're in the habit of grazing!

grannyannie on 03/17/2014:
TV + snacking goes together too well. I was okay before we started binge watching series on netflix. He'd watch a movie and I'd be on the computer or reading and didn't have to snack. But to actually sit and watch... snacks.

Did not do well yesterday. After picking up some things from his flat, we transported hub's uncle (dementia) to a nursing home from the elderly ward he's been in for about 4 months. Very impressed with the home and the staff.  They gave us tea and biscuits (cookies).  I was starving by then as we hadn't any lunch so scoffed lots of biscuits. Finally had a meal at about 4.30 and had sirloin and chips and peas, and 3 pints of beer!  Oink. 

Think what I need to do is get on the scale every morning. I find it motivating. Our Ugandan daughter is coming next week for a visit and I'll be baking her chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chips muffins - her faves. Can I resist?!?

It's hard when you're starving to resist biscuits.Looks like you had no problem getting back on track.
