We had a great Father’s Day weekend in the country. Dad came to spend the day, as well as my sister, her daughter and two boys, one of my brothers, my daughter and the Peanut. We ate, played outside on the porch, ate, played some more, and ate.
And I discovered you CAN wipe out a lot of weight loss progress in a two day weekend. Oh yeah. The weekend started with a potluck lunch at work on Friday and kind of went downhill food-wise from there. But you know what, I got up this morning and got right back to it. I’m NOT about beating myself up over this, sometimes you just have to eat Grandpa’s famous macaroni salad, made with real mayo, and have second or third helpings. You never want to hurt your dad’s feelings on Father’s Day! Seriously, I figure if I do great for 5 or 6 days a week, then go a little astray for a couple of meals, I will just deal with it, and get back on track. That’s life.
I wish I had taken pictures, but I was too busy eating and playing.
I did make a good little treat using those little waffle cone bowls. I filled them up about 2/3 of the way with Cheesecake flavored pudding, and topped them with mixed berries. They were a big hit, and I was thinking that there are a lot of possibilities there, using lowfat ingredients as well.
It was a fun, hot day, and I think we got the ultimate compliment, when my 7 and 10 year old great nephews didn’t want to leave when it was time to go home :-).
Peanut had a great time being outside.
