Our Growing Family

September 19, 2016 — 4 Comments

First things first. I went to Yoga yesterday morning. I took things slow, and my back was kind to me. However, off and on throughout the day, I felt weird twinges that left me wondering if my back is going to give me any problems this week. I really hope not. I have a Yoga challenge that I gotta complete!!

Family Day

I’ve been trying to have all of our kids and grandkids over at least once a month this year. It just doesn’t work out every month. Yesterday, we were all able to get together and as always, it was a fun filled afternoon of chats, playtime and food. Our parents were even able to make it, so we had a houseful! Fifteen people to be exact! You guys…..our family is growing!

Grand Baby number Five is in this little tummy!! I am so happy for Jake and Jordan and so excited to meet Grand Baby number five in March!

I was more into cooking and playing and chatting yesterday than I was taking pictures, so I don’t have many.

I cooked up a Pork Shoulder for sandwiches. This crockpot was filled almost to the top. The fam seemed to love the pork, and here is what is left.

I had a variety of buns for everyone to chose from, but the King’s Hawaiian Dinner Rolls were my favorite for making Sliders.

I made my favorite Fall Chopped Salad and I think that it was a hit too!

I also had a big fruit tray, a few raw veggies to snack on, chips and salsa and Cookies and Brownie Bites for dessert.

I ate more than I had planned on eating (grazing), and I will assume that I ate all of my weeklies. If my back cooperates, I should be able to get in Yoga daily, I plan to drink all of my water and stick to 30 SmartPoints a day for the rest of the week. I hope to be down on the scale when I weigh on Friday morning.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Here are yesterday’s eats…..

Brunch – 10 SP

Scrambled Egg Whites, Pork Sausage, White Sweet Potatoes and Avocado Slices
