Enchiladas. Beer. Biscuits & country mushroom gravy. Eggs. Pumpkin pancakes. Scotch on the rocks. Pretzels. Pumpkin bread. Skinny Cows. Staying away from the candy aisle at the grocery store. ROFL!

Just having it all, but in reasonable portions. Nothing overboard or seconds. :)

Walked all over our DD's school today, some up & down hill. Her bed is *so* comfy. Besides the statin, I think our bed is too hard even with 3" foam topper we recently added. Doing so much better without the statin. YAY!

Trying to enjoy and eat balanced. Salads. 5 servings fruits & veggies per day. No butter.

Turkey on whole wheat w/ swiss cheese (ice chest & picnic lunches while on the road) or peanut butter & jelly. Water. Water. Water. ;))

Thought I'd get one more post in before things are shut down tomorrow until Oct. 5...

Last night we didn't pull into Motel 6 until after 8 pm. :O *Very* long driving day, but Motel 6s are far between in the great empty expanses in TX! And since we are traveling w/ DD's dog, Motel 6s are dog friendly as well as budget friendly. :P

Had late dinner at a Crackerbarrel which is a chain we have seen since VA. Pretty good basic food. I was tired & achy so went for comfort food. Meat loaf, mashed potatoes w/ gravy, green beans & baby carrots. Biscuit & cornbread. We got takeout Carrot Cake and had back at our motel room. I practically fell asleep eating that, LOL! :D Up at 5:30 a.m. for showers, then to IHOP. I was good & had their whole wheat Fr. Toast w/ sliced fresh banana and Eggbeaters. The meal came with turkey bacon. I'd never had turkey bacon. UGH! Tasted disgusting, ROFL! :P I'll stick to the real thing next time! ;)

Now on the road to Albuquerque to have lunch w/ my elderly aunt & uncle. Lunch will be @ a Chili's. So, who knows what I will have, LOL?! <:P

I had a lot of exercise before starting the trip home, up & down stairs @ DD's, walking around town to her school classrooms, etc., packing her up. Etc. I never *ever* want to live in a house w/ stairs and a second story! LOL! Neither DH's nor my knees or hips can take it. I was in total pain and 800 mg Motrin for days! :o\ No exercise to speak of now on the road-trip. I imagine Mika is a bit pudgier than when I left, too. So back to our walking! And back to my Sansome video when I get home! I know the joint pain would have been *much* worse if I was still on the statin Rx, so am glad I got rid of that in time to rid my body of the side effects before this trip! :)

Then onward to either Gallup or further west into AZ, Holbrook. Either Motel 6 @ Gallup, or @ Holbrook. None in between. See how we feel and if we're up to longer drive into AZ after lunch & quick visit in Albuquerque. :) Friday we will push on to Barstow in CA, then continue west & home, arriving sometime Sat. Unfortunately, too late to pick up my Mika at the kennels as they close @ 1 pm on Sats., and are closed Sundays. So I won't be able to bail out my dog 'til Monday. I miss her *SO* much it hurts! :((

Have a great weekend, everyone, and take care of yourselves until we can post again! HUGS!
