Sadly, I must report that I have a color coordinated addition to this lovely pair of shoes. My old, black, three strapped, two metal stays and Velcro knee brace. Won't I look stylish? Well, I'm hoping that even a slow, methodical walk will be better than sitting on my big fat a$$ icing my knee every afternoon. Besides, I must get ready for my trip to the fair, you know. :) I am also thinking this could be "the look" for the fall season. I'm a trendsetter, that way, you know.
Also, I'd like to introduce you all to a new blogger "266". She is just beginning her journey, so if you have time, drop by and offer the same kind of encouragement you've given me. We all know how important our blogosphere buddies are, don't we?
As you may, or may not, remember, my last post bemoaned my bad habits and sins of over indulgence. I am happy (kinda) to report that this Wednesday Weigh In did, in fact bring a slight increase it weight, but not the horrible gain I had been expecting. I was only up 1.2#, and while that is really not acceptable, I'm sorta ok with it since I was expecting a 3-5# gain. It takes so little to make me happy, doesn't it? Now I'm back on track again. I've dug my food diary out of the desk drawer and put in on the kitchen counter where I will run into it on a regular basis. That will serve as a constant reminder to me that what I put into my big mouth will ultimately make a difference.
BIG NEWS!!! Well, to me anyway. Hubby Dearests, aka "The Pickiest Eater In the World" really took one for the team last night. He ate eggplant!!! Huge news in this family. Our CSA basket last week included an eggplant, so I was determined to find something to do with it that HD might consider ingesting. I found a wonderful turkey sausage and eggplant casserole that was really quite tasty. I added a bit of extra cayenne for some "oomph" and Ed ate 3 helpings... count them 3!!! Shock of all shocks. He hopes there won't be more eggplant, but if there is, he has consented to eating this dish again. :) Like I said.....Big News in these parts.
I'm hoping to get to the Iowa State Fair this weekend. If I do, I'll try and get some wonderful pictures of the butter cow.....which will now be accompanied by a butter sculpture of Neil Armstrong's landing on the moon instead of Michael Jackson, and of course a few of the many wonderful treats on a stick. I'm laying out my plan of attack as we speak, cuz I don't want a repeat of my last week of debauchery.
