I went to quilting today for the first time since March, and it was really good. I had needed the time off to get my "life plan" underway, to get moved, and finally to have a good vacation. But it was so good to get back to friends who share my interests and many of my same struggles. What a great day!
The only bad news is that when I quilt all day long, I sit for most of the time. So I will have to be careful to make up for that the other days of the week.
Alan and I are doing pretty well on our new plan. We eat a moderate breakfast, a good sized lunch, and then I have a salad with a bit of protein and a bit of carb (like some crackers) for dinner. He just has water or sometimes watermelon for dinner. We are finding that we aren't missing our evening snacks in front of the TV at all. Amazing!
Both yesterday and today I hit a total of around 1600 calories, so I still need to cut that back to about 1200. My blood sugars have been excellent -- all in the "green" range.
We hope to do a lot of walking this weekend, so I will let you know how it goes.
