Do ya follow?

I have been meaning to ask if I am following you and if not, please post your blog address so I can. I read as many posts as I can and even comment sometimes.

This was such a lovely weekend! Sunday morning I particpated in a 4.5 mile (7.2 km) fitness walk with a friend of mine. We also did a practice walk on Friday. It has been ages since I've gotten together with her and it was so nice to catch up.

At the finish line

I spent the rest of the holiday doing very little. I took a nap. We had a BBQ in the evening and my mom and sister and her family came. When it got dark, we lit off some fireworks. Prety low key.







I always have high hopes to get lots of things done over long weekends, but yesterday it was like pulling teeth to accomplish anything. I spent most of the day re-reading the last Harry Potter book and watching a couple of shows. I did manage to weed the flower beds in the front yard and sort through a bunch of clothes in my closet, but I didn't want to! Oh yeah, on Saturday I took my daughters to see Eclipse. All in all, it was an uneventful weekend, but pretty relaxing.

On the band-front, I spent most of yesterday having issues. I had some toast and peanut butter for breakfast and then spent an hour PB-ing. I've been able to eat pretty much everything without issue so I was kind of surprised that it gave me trouble. I had black bean soup for lunch and then we went to McDonald's for dinner. I had three or four fries and BAM!- totally stuck! More PB-ing. Ack! Although I had no issue with some left-over Jello cheesecake later on.

fries killed me at McDonalds. I had to totally give them up...I can eat them from burgerville though if im careful. I think it is those pointy crispy ends. Now when I say I can eat them at Burgerville..I can eat maybe 2 or 3. Have you had time of the day differences? Maybe the toast thing was because it was morning?

Congrats on the walk and shifting to do a little work on a three day weekend. I love the ones where nothing gets done.

French fries hurt me too, I think because I get excited and go too fast!

Stephanie said...

It sounds like you had a nice, relaxing (but productive) weekend. Aren't those the best?

Janice said...

Ditto to what Stephanie said...low-key, quiet, r&r weekends are the best! It is nice to kick back.

No fun on the pb stuff...My first fill is tomorrow and I'm hoping for just a little. PB's worry me. :)

The PB'ing is a pain. I don't even want to go through that, but it helps to know who to go to when I do.

I love, love, LOVE Harry POTTER!!!! I'm re-reading "Prisoner of Azkaban" now. I started from the very first and am re-reading them all.

Dude...you just got me off McD's fries for the rest of my life.
Hope tomorrow is a better day in this department.

Steph said...

I haven't attempted McD's fries since surgery, not because I think I'll get stuck but because I think I WON'T! :-) Congrats on the walk - that's a far way to go. Not sure if you're following me, but I'm http://electricladyband.blogspot.com/ if you want to.

Sorry about the PB. Great job on the walk!

Hey there! Am guessing the toast + peanut butter was too sticky/gummy and did you in for the day! Sometimes if I PB early on, my stoma is a bit irritated and it's easier to get stuck on other things. Am guessing that's what happened to you. Nice going with the walk though!! :) Thanks for posting on my blog as well. :) :)
