Who was it that used to say that???? Minnie Pearl perhaps???? I just loved watching that little lady....

Well I'm checking in to see how everyone has been getting along.  I'm loving that the weather is beginning to cool down. And I can start getting out and enjoying the outside more. Love to walk when its cooler outside and enjoy the scenery.  Well I started the 5 day pouch test again, as you know I have done this before with success of getting back on track with my eating habits. I'm now into day 3 and doing good. I started on my soft foods today, tuesday evening, I made the creamy turkey soup and WOW I was amazed at the taste.

My husband has been doing most of the cooking the last 2-3 years due to him getting off at 1:00pm and I don't get off til 5:00pm. Of course he goes into work at 4am. Works out pretty good for me. I've enjoyed it. Down fall is he knows that I can't eat just anything and he will cook 2 meals most of the time.  He tries to make sure I get in my meals. He also eats when he gets it cooked, and then eats again when I arrive.  So I told him sunday we are going to change it up a bit. 

After getting off  I've came in and cooked meals that were low in carbs/sugars. And healthier than he is used to eating.  When I made the turkey soup last night, he was shocked as well as myself that something that tasted that good was good for you.... I showed him the breakdown of calories, carbs, etc.  So instead of the usual salads that I send him everyday for lunch when I pack our lunches, I fixed him soup. He told me today that one of his co-workers wanted to know what he was eating today, because it smelled so good. 

This evening, I made tuna salad and cut up a tomato and topped it with the tuna. Since I have a hard time eating fish, I've been trying to get up the courage to try the tuna again. I ate about 2 Tbs and that was it for me.  So that means 1 of 2 things. My pouch is tightening up or I just couldn't do anymore of the tuna.  I think it was both.. Which is good. That means my tool that the Dr. provided me is still in place and working like it should be. I just need to control it. I am on a mission to do just that. Today I managed to drink 16 oz of water,  8oz of juice, 8oz of hot/sour soup, 8 oz of cream of turkey soup. 4 egg whites, and of course the tuna, (gulp)....

After we finished our supper, my husband put a roast on in the pressure cooker for Italian Roast beef, so he will be able to eat it tomorrow since Thursdays are usually a long day for me. Then I will just heat up some cream of turkey soup or a pc of chicken, and may even make me a protein shake. That should tide me over.   Friday I will introduce my pouch to a more normal meal. And begin to control myself. And that being day 5. That's an accomplishment.... Yeah, that will mean I am in deed back on track, and I need to stop grazing.....

I'll get off of here for now.  But as for my mission that I started while I was on vacation I completed everything except defrosting my freezer and I'll have to make that a priority before long. As hunting season is right around the corner and the hubby is packing already for his upcoming trip at the end of the month.... So I anticipate venison coming soon. So 1 of the 2 freezers has to be cleaned and room made for it.

Til another day....
Tah Tah for Now.
