This was yesterday...
Breakfast - Old fashion Oates with chopped apple, raisins, walnuts, brown sugar and milk. 1 mango and 3 cups of green tea.
Later - An Ensure - for several years this is an addition during the day. Sometimes make a smoothie
with yogurt, fruit and soy protein powder.
Lunch - Potato soup (with addition of last two garden turnips, chopped carrot, celery, garlic and onion) with chopped collard greens and bacon on top. Fruit tea and two orange cookies with milk
Later a sundae with vanilla ice cream and warm Carmel sauce. If I do not have this then I have several pieces of candy or some nuts.
Evening Meal - same potato soup, fruit tea and small piece of chocolate cake
Now this looks sufficient to me. Scale has not budged off of 108 lbs in several years. I do not want to lose anymore. Over the last few years I have lost
5 lbs and cannot seem to gain them back. In my younger years I always gained 4 or 5 lbs during Christmas holidays - not anymore. Might add that my son who teaches Yoga in Thailand, tells me that most of his female students are small like his mom and he thinks my weight is fine for 5 ft 2...
Youngest daughter reminds me that my portions seem small to her :)
All of this plus a handful of supplemental vitamins and a blood pressure pill
I miss so much walking and working outside, the cold weather bothers me to much to walk outside and after all I do inside do not feel like driving to local town to walk on indoor track - Spring I can hardly wait for you to return.
Oh, 3 or 4 nights a week when I wake up at midnight I will have a cup of hot chocolate or yogurt :)
Now soup would have been complete if I had made my 1/2 pan of cornbread - finally mastered half
