No-Labor Day

This has been a busy Labor Day weekend for The Gryphon and I, starting Saturday when The White Rabbit had his traditional get-together. He'll also have friends over this afternoon, and we hope to be there for part of it.

Saturday, after sleeping in, we bought ingredients for a pasta salad and whipped that together, as a team, before heading up to The White Rabbit's place. We had arranged for a pet sitter to come by and walk Una around dinnertime.

Camera-Phone Diet - Sunday, September 6

Until I reach my goal of losing 15 pounds (which will put me where I was on my wedding day), I'm doing something called the "Camera-Phone Diet," where you photograph everything you eat. Sunday, after a delicious breakfast at home, courtesy of The Gryphon, we went to a hibachi steakhouse with friends. I had the scallops, which turned out to be a good, low-fat choice.

Here's what I ate:

Sunday, September 6 - Breakfast  Sunday, September 6 - Grapes & Tomatoes  Sunday, September 6 - Soup  Sunday, September 6 - Apple  Sunday, September 6 - Vegetable Dumplings

Sunday, September 6 - Salad Soup  Sunday, September 6 - Veggies & Rice  Sunday, September 6 - Scallops  Sunday, September 6 - Green Tea Ice Cream  Sunday, September 6 - Orange
