Wow, all I can say about yesterday is that it was mindless eating!  We had my brother and his family over for a bbq – and I think I started eating around 4:00 and never really stopped.

In fact, as my brother and I are standing over the chips and dip, he said to me “I was afraid of a day like this on vacation!”  I kept reaching for another piece of cheese, another piece of salami – I couldn’t stop!

We made jumbo hot dogs from the deli, blue cheese stuffed burgers, macaroni and cheese and bacon wrapped potatoes.  By about 9:00 p.m. I was completely regretting my choices for the day!  But, its one day, and I am ready to move on.

yep, I melted 2 tablespoons of butter and toasted panko bread crumbs for the topping - not many calories in that!

Charlie sauteeing onions for the burgers - my whole family loves onions!

After dinner we walked to the river – lots of boat traffic!

And my Mom brought me this from her trip to Savannah – she went to The Lady & Son restaurant – can’t wait to try this!

I need to do a healthier meal plan this week – the goal is to keep my calories from fat around 25%.

Since it’s a holiday, I’ll do my 101 Days of Recap Update tomorrow – if you are participating, don’t forget to email me your Week 5 progress at

Have a great day and be safe! 😀
