The flying squirrels are getting together again tomorrow night - for dinner at a local cafeteria and then dominoes and chit-chat at a nearby Starbucks. I'm going to go this time, I'm craving some of the social interaction.
The Man is not feeling well today, so he's been craving comfort food. He made a full package of "deluxe" macaroni and cheese while I was doing my video. I'll admit that I had a couple spoonfuls as I was preparing my own lunch. The bad habits and brain issues don't go away with surgery - so resisting such temptations, even if it is just 50 or so calories worth, is something I'll continue to have to work on.
I did pick up a treat over the weekend while I was at Whole Foods, a package of roasted pepitas (green pumpkin seeds). They're absolutely delicious sprinkled on salads, particularly when doing a Mexican flavored or taco salad, which is what I did today.
Dinner was simple, beef, my miniature cauliflower cheese gratin, and some corn.
Oh, another plus for exercise - it's much easier to get 60+ oz of water in when you suck down 20 during a workout!
