Po-Boys & a Computer Virus

Yesterday, I went over to my daughter’s house to work on the family computer.

It had a virus on it and it would not let you do anything.  When I called to make sure someone would be there I found out three of Grands were home.  I asked if they wanted me to bring lunch.  You know what that answer was, right?

I ordered 3 roast beef po’boys from Bears Po-Boy’s in Covington.  On the way I stopped at Wendy’s to pick up something for me, a baked potato with chives (no butter) and a side salad (no dressing I used lemon only). 
When I arrived at the house and the youngest, Griffin, 14 came out to help.  We sat around the dining room table.  Everyone unwrapped their food and we said a pray of thanksgiving.  I

II am trying to eat healthy so it was a bit difficult at first smelling those hot roast beef sandwiches but I stuck to it.  My potato and salad filled me up and I had such a feeling of satisfaction that I was able to stick to my eating plan.  Each day it gets easier.  Eating out is a big part of my social life so this was a good start.

My Lunch



Computer is Working

It took longer than expected to get the virus off the computer.  Those things are a royal pain.  After doing the fix and all the scanning that is necessary, and working on the audio problems everything is now working.  Hooray!  Griffin started school today he is a junior in high school.  Next week, his sister Taylor is off to college.  A freshman it is so exciting.

Beverly’s Birthday!

Today is my friend’s birthday and we took her out to lunch at Longhorn’s.  I told you this is one eating bunch of people.  She thought it was only going to be her and I. 
Everyone was at the table waiting.  When she drove up to the restaurant met her at the door carrying my purse.  The girl ask how many I told her two and as we followed the waitress passed the table where everyone was waiting , I said I think we will sit here instead.  Beverly had just taken off her sun glassed and was digging in her purse so when she looked up everyone said surprise!  It was a fun time.  I had a baked sweet potato and steamed broccoli with lemon (no butter on either).  It was delicious!
Later, we all went to the movies to see Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones in, "Hope Springs".   A light movie with many laughs, esp. for those couples that have been maried a long time.

The Ladies!

That free dessert looked scrumptious by I wasn’t even tempted.

Hope you all are having fun, I am!
Happy Trails and Be Well.


  1. Is that you in the blue and white blouse?? How much have you lost? And, more importantly, how are you feeling?

  2. Yep, That's me. I lost 14 lbs. The inches have fallen off. My shrit was so loose you can see the folds in it. I put on a brand new pair of pants that I bought a few months ago and they kept sliding down. They were size 18. Guess I need to go through my old clothes in the back of my closet. God knows I have all kinds of sizes!

    I am feeling great,full on energy. Thanks for asking. I am so excided about this eating program. For the past few years, I have been fighting a losing battle with this weight, now, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. My current weight is lower than it has been in at least 5 years.

    Juice On!!

  3. Pants falling down - isn't that the best? I love it.

    I have rings that I haven't been able to wear for years (I love rings). I've started getting some of them out - the biggest - and wearing them again. I love that even more than getting new clothes.
