Frozen Chocolate Mix

I’m still on target for my weight loss, gradually losing 1 pound or so per week. Although my trainer keeps pushing me to a 2 pound loss, I’m happy losing 1 pound per week. I haven’t felt deprived. I haven’t felt hungry. I haven’t given up any meals. I simply have been careful with my portion sizes, increased the amount of protein I’m eating, tried to cut the sugary carbs and most importantly, increased my level of physical activity.

This has worked for me because its not extreme. I can live this way. I’m not white-knuckling a diet. I’m changing my lifestyle.

And along the way, one of the things I’ve continued to enjoy has been a Braum’s treat.

Chocolate Mix with Heath from Braums.

I have no idea how many calories are in a small chocolate frozen yogurt. But I can guess at it. I save my calories on occasion and head over there for my treat.

Today was one of those days. I slurped it down while my brain did a happy dance. And now I’m putting on my shoes and heading out the door for my walk.

Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him. Psalm 34:8

Countdown – A week

Its been years since I counted down the days to my birthday but this year, I’m counting down. No longer will I be forty-something. I will join the ranks of the generation of folks who are 50 and proud of it.

We are having a party at my house on Saturday evening. (You are invited but must RSVP by Wednesday. ha!) Barbeque from Rudy’s. Cornbread Salad, Potato Salad, Fruit. A cake from Candy Haven. A house packed full of friends and family and I will usher in this new decade of my life in style.

I’m spending this week decluttering and plotting the serving dilemma (off the kitchen counter or use up one of the tables?) and counting the napkins and plates.

I think I’m ready but still have a few more piles to move in the effort to make sure the counters have room for the food.

I’m soooo excited! 50!
