DDDY Day 1 / When It Rains ...

Well, the good car started to shutter this morning, halfway through town, and then the "check engine" light came on - not a good sign.  There has been a complete change of plans for today, obviously.  I need to call the garage when they open.  I'll also call AAA to have the car towed there.  Looking at the bright side (it is my nature), I was fortunate to get the car turned around and back home at least.  It looks like this morning belongs to Murphy (as in "Murphy's Law") ... lol

Things happen for a reason, right?

We're expecting bad weather, heavy winds, maybe even some hail.  Oh boy ...

The scale still shows 269 (officially) today, for the DDDY challenge.


1 whole wheat Thomas' bagel thin (because I don't know better, it tastes good, Allan)  110 calories
Topped with St. Dalfour "Four Fruits" spread (1 TB, measured)  60 calories


Big bowl of minestrone soup (no cheese) 250 calories
Small portion of spaghetti with marinara (no cheese) 442 calories
Italian bread (plain) 110 calories


Salad of mixed greens, onion, tomato, etc.  (veggies, lots of raw veggies, no cheese)  200 calories
2 TB balsamic dressing  120 calories
1/2 slice wheat bread, grilled  50 calories

Today's calories, total:   1342 of 1,595

Water, total:  10 of 8 (8 oz glasses)  - Not as hard as I thought!


  1. Ann, you are doing so well. Keep up the great work.

  2. Didn't you just ask for some rain?
    ☁ Here's an umbrella! Stay dry, Ann!
