Happy Belated Mother's Day!
Yesterday my middle daughter had us over for brunch. The oldest was able to make it but the youngest couldn't. She'll be arriving from Springfield, Mass. on Wednesday to attend a bridal shower this weekend so I get to see her then!
Daughter & her hubby put out a scrumptious spread and I ate everything! Pecan Baked French Toast, Quiche Lorraine, sausages, rosemary hashbrowns, chocolate dipped strawberries, banana walnut muffins.... (okay - I didn't eat everything - I skipped the muffins.) But it was mother's day and it sure beat the breakfasts in bed they used to make me when they were kids! (see Mother'sDay 2007 post).
I'm not upset with myself that I ate all that fattening food. What I am unhappy about is that I didn't eat it slower. Like I've been trying to do but have let go by the wayside some. You know...Paul McKenna's tried & true tip about putting your fork down between each bite? Because had I done that - I would never have gone back for seconds. Now I feel like that "Coulda' Had a V-8" commercial - smacking myself in the head!
This week I step up my Cto5k regime. I'm psyched! Nan was right - this can get addicting. And yesterday my mother-in-law gave me 5 tank top style t-shirts which will be perfect for running! And guess what? She bought me large - not Extra large! And they fit! (Now my bottom half is a another story....)
Tomorrow night the girls & I are going to do our walk in a very cool park in our area. It is situated along the Genesee River just before it empties into Lake Ontario. The trail is supposed to be beautiful - and there are even some hidden waterfalls! I haven't been to that park since I was in high school. (And I've never walked the trail.) Living in Upstate New York we have access to so many wonderful parks and waterfronts. I need to take advantage of that! I keep saying I want to travel and visit the world - when I have a wealth of opportunities right at my doorstep!
I hope you all had a wonderful mother's day...that you either got hugs or gave them! And if not....here's one from me *hug*
