Day 233 - Another windy day......

I'm beginning to think I live back in southern Alberta where the wind never stops blowing.  It is a typical May long weekend in Alberta - cold, windy, rainy and snowing, you gotta love it.  Yesterday morning the sun was shining and it was fairly nice but by the time everyone arrived it was cold and miserable.  We still had an awesome time (sorry, I was too busy to take pictures), had 20 people to feed all together (almost thought I was going to run out of food).  We had burgers, hotdogs, potato salad, baked beans and watermelon.  I was so intent on making sure that everyone got feed that I forgot to eat.  By the time I realized it it was too late so I basically went all day on 3 latte's and a hotdog.  And the funny thing was I didn't snack even though I had chips and dip set out.  That is totally unlike me, usually when there is that much food I am the first and last one in line.

Hubby had an awesome day, even though he got totally played out.  My son and his fiancee stayed overnight so that was nice.  Kirsten helped with the cleanup, she's such a sweet girl.  I do realize today that all this extra weight is not good for me.  My legs, ankles and feet are killing me from being on them all day.  I just want to lay down and not get up for the rest of the day.  That is not going to happen, I am going to get up and get moving.  I'll take some Tylenol and keep on trucking.

I totally took the day off today.  Trevor and Kirsten came back from shopping with breakfast from MacDonald's.  I had a bacon egger with hash browns.  I can't tell you how many years it's been since I had MacDonald's for breakfast.  It was a nice treat but of the calories.  I was good for the rest of the day, had a nice afternoon nap.  I even dug out some cross stitching and started on a wedding sampler.  Mind was busy thinking of something besides food.  Around 5:30 decided I was hungry so had a little snack of some leftover baked beans, half a hotdog, hamburger bun and watermelon.  Watched some TV and now heading to bed, it has been an awesome day!!!!

  1. Of course, I should say- You can't be just eating 1 hot dog all day, that's not good...
    BUT what I'm really thinking is WOW TESSA!!! THAT IS AWESOME!!! Not that you didn't eat all day, but that you had a BBQ and controlled yourself! That you didn't even snack on the chips and dip! That is great! I know how hard that is, and I am so proud of you! (I had a bbq at the sale a few weeks back, and that was a test for me- which I failed miserably lol.)
    I'm so glad you both had a good time :)

    And Thank you so much for your support. It really did give me a lift when I saw your comment, and I really needed it after yesterday :)
