I know you're in NY seeing Wicked as I write this Cam but I will respond through my jealous fog anyway! hehehehe! I definitely am with you about the nightmares part of WOTW, and I was totally teary at the end. I love a movie that provokes feeling, whatever the feeling is. I have not seen anything else great lately, but I have good hopes for the rest of the summer's films!

Way to go on resisiting the food at the BBQ. Those are always tough. And if you have a family like mine, they just tell you, "oh a little bit of this or that isn't going to kill you." I get that all the time...Good for you though!

Keep up the good work and have a great day!
Even at this rate it would take me some time to get to my goal but I do appreciate the sentiment and know what you mean!
I think we do have the same family. The relatives who will scoop on the food to my plate and then while eating complain about my weight! They need help I think! LOL

Hope you are having a great night!
Mike

Hope that you have a happy & healthy evening!!

Sorry I've been MIA, but I just wanted to say you're doing a great job! Movies were a big hurdle for me too--I'm just so conditioned to eat there. But you handled it, and the BBQ, great!

Keep up the awesome work!!!
Hi Pearlieq! Thanks for your continued support! No worries about being "MIA", as long as you are doing well we all get too busy for this electric world every so often. (Yes, it is true! hehe)

Hope that you are having a happy & healthy eve!
Mike

Hey Mike!

How did yesterday go for you? I hope it was a healthy and happy day!

By the way... did you know that Coke has an online contest where you can win a trip to WDW or Disneyland? I know that you're not drinking Coke anymore, but wouldn't it be cool to win a free vacation from them?

Hi Tracy!

Ooooh! Winning that contest could be sweet revenge! hehe I will have to check it out ASAP!

Yesterday was stressful work wise, too many meetings and not enough time. My eating was not the hottest yesterday either as first my lunch was messed up because I made curry chicken salad and put too much curry powder, it was overpowering. I bought some good spices recently and this powder was like dynamite compared to my usual curry powder. So I had to adapt something quick! hehe. I decided to take a nap in the afternoon because my sinuses were acting up and when I woke up i was starving. So I think I overdid it a bit at dinner carb wise and portionwise. Gotta get back on track today!

Of course today I am having dinner out at a restaurant with my family, a seafood restaurant known for its deep frying. Which is the only way I like fish 99% of the time! So I made need to get adventurous. I am figuring that they will at least have to have some kind of grilled chicken or even steak. I think as long as I avoid the crispy crunchy yummy deep fried batters and french fries I will be ok! I am hoping they have some good salads or veggies as my veg intake has slaked too much the past two or so days, need to get my salads back up in size. I will also need to avoid the dessert menu when that puppy flies by as this restaurant has amazing pie...mmm pie! hehe! Be strong, drink my water, smile and enjoy the family visit and not the food! Ok, I think I will be ok. I have to go get somethings done here in the office now as I am leaving early today.

Have a happy and healthy day all!

Mike

how cool would that be..to win something from coke!!!
I know how you feel about the fried crispys... those are the best.. nothing like fried batter!! I know you'll make a good decision on what you order..
I'm sure the curry powder was a little overwhelming! I could only imagine.. it sounds like you are the spice king... any recipes you'd like to share? I could eat chicken everyday but I guess I dont have the imagination to spice it up with stuff other than the normal...

have a nice dinner and enjoy your company! tath's what it is all about.. feed your heart and head.. not your tummy... or something like that

Is it only the dessert menus that fly or is it the pie too? I find that funny in an odd way.

Good luck! Drink your water and enjoy the company!

Hi maybutterfly!-- Thanks for stopping by my journal! I could give you some chicken ideas I use if you like, I am just not sure if they fit in with whatever plan of eating you follow. The plan I use is controlled carb and allows some higher fat food in moderation, so some of my chicken is lower fat (like mustard baked chicken) and some is not (like bacon wrapped chicken breast, sooo yummy hehe). Let me know & I will share what I got!

Before I forget, thanks for the flying menu warnings Jen & Don! hehe

So everyone knows I survived the meal in tact! hehe I avoided the appetizers they loaded the table with and got a grilled chicken cesar salad (no sugar added dressing, yay!), and with the salad I had one clam cake (meatball sized batter balls with a bit of clam in them deep fried). So I had my crispy fix and stayed well within my plan! I didn't even eat the whole clam cake, as it started to get cool and I was like "WHy eat it if it doesn't taste good anymore??" Of course I got a lot of comments from family at dinner like "Why are you just drinking water? Is that all you are gonna have? Order something else?" Sheesh! I was like, "This is what I want and I am happy with it." I don't talk to them about losing weight, etc. because I have worked for years to get them to not fixate on me and my weight, and I feel like if I said "I'm dieting and have lost 23lbs" I would get back "About time! What diet? Why that diet? How much will you lose? Should you be eating that?" blah blah blah! I'd just rather not deal with the headaches. But anyway, it was great to see my mom before she heads back to Oregon and see some of my family (others I could do without, but who doesn't have family issues! LOL)

Anywho, I am gonna check in on some journals, then watch some TV while reading some of my new comic books (One of my few childhood vices I have held onto! hehe). Have a happy & healthy night all!!

Mike

Congratulations on making it through dinner. I am totally with you on the family bugging you about what you are drinking/eating. My in laws are the same way. My parents would actually accuse me of being pregnant. So I am with you on not saying much!

I hope you don't mind me asking, but would you mind sharing some of your chicken receipes with me? That is really the only meat that I eat, well that and turkey and I don't really know what to do with the stuff. I just started making chicken at home....there for a while I was afraid of it! I don't know why but I was!!!! But if you would not mind sharing I would really like that. Thanks!


By the looks of it you are really doing well Mike. Good for you. I am very proud of you for sticking with it. I am also very proud of the no coke.....that is totally awesome!!!! Keep it up.

Well I am off to some others.....hope you had a wonderful and healthy evening.

Good Night!
