Am now having a glass of wine at the Cottage. I was a very good minstrel today.
I have learned that when I eat out at restaurants that I CAN pick and choose what I need, if I take my time and just think about what’s good for me and what I really want .
I can order a soup and bread bowl sans bread!  (and I get more soup or chili that way anyways!

I don’t have to get ANYTHING with cheese on it.
And if I really, really want something sweet, I will forgo the desserts (not that I have a big sweet tooth anyways…I was always more of a “salt fiend” and now I’ve got that licked…salt- licked, that is J) Well, if I NEED something sweet, I just have a square or two of dark chocolate with my evening cabernet and it seems to do the trick. And dark chocolate and red wine are good for me to boot!

I CAN DO THIS.

Hell….I AM doing this ;)
Weekends can be hard on folks changing lifestyles…so…how goes it?

So glad you're home and that you had a good time, and that you did so well on the road :) Tell me more about these fish oil supplements, I may look into them myself :)

They look like horse pills...I buy the ones that are "odorless" and they really seem to be helping. I didn't take them for the last 4 days on the road and my bp is a smidge higher...
108/78 this morning...(of course I had Steamed Dumplings with Soy Sauce last night :) too...00
