Back to Reality

I had a wonderful time on Friday watching the Royal Wedding.  Every detail seemed to be perfect. 

I’m very happy for them, they seem like nice young people who have a much better chance at succeeding at this married while Royal thing than anyone else in recent memory.  I wish them the best!

While I was watching and while on my second cup of coffee, I decided I was hungry.  I decided on oat bran.  For some reason that seemed British to me.  I have no clue why, it just did! I have expounded on my new-found love of oat bran before.  I don’t expect it to change.  I did however have an interesting experience with it.  I had run out of the store brand I was using and decided to open up the Hodgson Mill oat bran I had previously purchased precisely because there was a recipe that sounded good on the box.

It was interesting.  The texture was different from what I’ve gotten used to.  It was less finely ground.  It tasted very good, but because of the difference in texture, I should have probably cooked it a bit longer. I was in too much of a hurry to get back to the wedding to actually take a photo of it.  I took the picture of the box later (blogger’s license? 😉  )

The day was long and tiring.  Dinner was VERY simple and without documentation.  I had Morningstar Farms Mushroom Lover’s Burgers on Pepperidge Farms Deli Flats 7-Grain.  These are the lowest in Points that I’ve found of any of the Deli Flats or sandwich rounds.  They only count for 2 Points each.  I was quite disappointed when the Point value of all of them went from 1 Point to 3 Points.  These are my go to variety now.  Our leader mentioned another brand that I have yet to find.  I’ll have to continue my search.

I really crashed last night which was good for the purpose of no snacking!

Which led me to another success at Weight Watchers this morning. I lost another half pound.  That puts me only 2 and 1/4 pounds from my personal goal at WW! 🙂  I can’t tell you how long since I’ve been there.  It’s within my reach and I am determined to make it.  Oh, yeah…that and fitting in some of the jeans that are getting dusty in my drawers while they don’t fit me.  I suppose I should at some point tell my other jeans and WW story.  I’ll save that for a slow news day and share it then. 😉

It was very chilly out this morning when I was leaving for WW.  I had a sweater on and thought that would be sufficient.  I had to run back in the house for a jacket.  It’s still pretty cool, but the sun is shining beautifully.  Ralph has said he wants to get out of the house, so we’ll see where it leads us!

Happy Saturday! 🙂
