Thanks for all your comments yesterday. My mom decided not to cancel the cruise after all. I felt like I got kicked in the gut when I thought she had cancelled though. I have been shopping with the trip in mind and have set goals around it etc. so I was surprised when she mentioned not going. She sent me an email about 11:30 a.m. yesterday saying she had calmed down and that we were still going. I know it was not right of me not to call her for Mother's Day but sometimes I would rather avoid then deal with her. Character flaw I know but it what it is. Oh, the joy of the mother/daughter relationship.

Hoping the scale gods are kind tomorrow. I got lots of walking in on Saturday but haven't done much exercise since plus I have had some sodium heavy meals. All I can do is keep pushing forward right? Well that is about it for today. Until next time...

    Congratulations on the cruise, btw. Hope you have a blast!

    smoothie. You put 1 cup Almond Breeze unsweetened
    "milk" (40 calories), 1 pkg. diet Swiss Miss

    Cool prizes by the way.

  19. It's so hard to pick a favorite, there are so many to choose from. The most low cal one I guess is baby carrots w/ a tbsp of hummus. Yummy.

  20. I love Garden Veggie Crisps from Costco - I love chips. Crunchy and salty -- yum! Veggies Crisps are 2 WW pts for 18! They are my saving crunchy!

  21. I have to say that my fave low cal snack item would be frozen grapes :) Love them

  22. Love the giveaway! Hoping I win! My favorite
    lo-cal snack would probably be a piece of fruit. Glad things are on the mend with your mom. I understand about the whole feeling obligated to call mom on Mother's Day, that is how I felt this year. I don't want my kids to feel that way. I feel like I should celebrate being a mother(what a priviledge!) rather than my kids celebrating me being thier mother.

  23. Fave low-calorie snack is grapes! I like them half-frozen :)

    Sorry to hear about mama-drama... :( But glad the trip is back on!

  24. I'm glad your trip is back on!

    My favorite low cal snack is fat-free sugar-free chocolate pudding. Yum!

  25. I love wasa crackers with a little bit of fruit and a serving of cheese. Mmmm. Good.

    Miss you! Be back soon. Tomorrow I hope.
