Happy St. Patricks Day!!!
I woke up this morning to a pinch on the butt. Ahhhhh, the joy of being married to an Irish man on St. Patricks Day. LOL. We are getting ready to head to my Father In Laws house for today's yearly party. Last year it was at our house. I cooked pounds of corned beef and cabbage. This year I just didn't feel up to it, so my FIL offered up his house. The party usually entails LOTS of food , a 10 hour poker game and beer. It will also be where my FIL announces his engagement to a woman named Sandy, who we have yet to meet. She will be there... and I am just praying that she is nicer then my MIL.
Yesterdays food went fantastic.. and I'll tell you, I found a great secret to eating slow and eating less. WATER. I filled a glass of water every time I served myself a plate. Every couple of bites I made myself slow down and drink some water. It allowed me to feel full before I had inhaled all the food on my plate. It was fantastic. I feel great today... like I already lost 2 lbs! I am going to take a big bottle to the party today and hopefully it will keep me from inhaling the food!
This morning is my gym day... I am aiming for 40 minutes on the elliptical machine, 35 minutes on the bicycle and 40 laps. I am praying that the sauna is working today, because I really enjoy the peace and quiet of the sealed in steam room! It will be a great start to a very hectic day.
Hope you have a Blessed Day... and not too much green beer!
