I am trying to stay on the low side for weights...I really don't need Popeye arms. My morning walks are taking me farther away, though!

Popeye arms are better than that jiggly, wing thing that has happened to my upper arms.

Speaking of dieting, as I type this (eating and typing at the same time...oops!) I'm having an early dinner - tacos. I thought I would splurge a few calories. As it turns out, the shells I planned to use where already opened... and stale - Phttuie!!! After only one bite I dumped the contents of the shells onto my plate, and I'm now finishing shelless tacos and saving myself a bunch of carbs in the process, which is fine with me.

Washing my keyboard of taco sauce is a small price to pay!

Mine did slim down...the arthritis in my shoulders is really mad, though. Oh well, can't have everything

I always end up eating it with a fork anyway! I asked Shrek when the last time we bought taco shells, he said about 2 years ago...I threw away the package I found in the cabinet.

I had lost 5 by my birthday last week, then put is all back on over my long b-day weekend. *URP* but it was worth it.
