Stay Vacay!

Anytime we eat out twice in one day while living here in vacationland, FLORIDA USA I feel it necessary to call us on having a stay vacay, or vacation for you purists!
Actually, the reasoning for eating out twice in one day had nothing to do with needing or wanting a vacation, but more to do with convenience.
You see, whenever I am scheduled, usually yearly unless in need sooner, to see my Dr. Nord, our mutual internist, I have to go in for a fasting blood work the week before that appointment.(My A1c is one of those tests and hopefully I will now be out of the threat of type two diabetes that I have been battling since 2009 with borderline numbers of 5.7-6.1, I believe below 5.4 is in the clear!)

And after we usually eat breakfast out, and we did since I had PT at 10:45A.M. today.
But you see that also goes into lunch time being done so close to noon and all and so we ate that out too!
Breakfast at the Olympia restaurant, is where I had a poached egg and whole wheat toast and a very large tropical fruit cup, actually I ate only a half of a slice of toast and about two or three piece of fruit and Hubby took the other half of my poached egg added into his two eggs, sausage, home fries and his toast too that he finished; he had coffee. I had a small tomato juice that I did finish and a glass of water that I did not, lemons on the side as always. My three halves of toast that were left and fruit cup came home with us... and after PT we had lunch at Jacks on Marion in Punta Gorda, and I ordered my favorite there their Calypso (seafood) bisque soup and Hail Caesar salad with anchovies, and yes, they too came home. We both had iced water with lemons on the side; Hubby ate half of his roast beef with ajous and spicy fries, so his came home too!
Just like on a vacay!

I finished my soup for dinner, but Hubby was still not hungry so we have plenty left for another day!
Sounds weird to many who don't live in vacationland, but we do.
Although, many people probably visit your area and enjoy vacationing there; new to them and mysterious and fun perhaps, hmm?
Anyway, we had mild temperatures here as always, mid to high seventies today so for us Floridians it was sweater weather, but we saw so many tourists, as usual in shorts and T-shirts, brrrrrrrrr, ha!

Moving on...

I was happy to see that this morning that I had lost another pound!
Thirty-five so far and counting, and tomorrow it will be three months since surgery!
While in Jacks I was happy to see that they now have free WIFI and so I asked my phone a question I thought I knew the answer to, if I can ever drink any alcohol ever again due to the gastric sleeve surgery and the answer was NO! (Just read where some people can drink wine, yay!)
Sounds silly, but I inwardly gasped thinking no wine, even on holidays, oh darn.
It is calorically unwise and the fermentation components could be damaging to my banana sized tummy, since two thirds was removed! The voiced answer on Google was stating. We had stopped two years ago due to the calories anyway, but still sad,  a wee bit.
Oh well... caffeine is a no no too as well as all that spicy food that I love.(Good news about spicy too, whatever you can tolerate.)
Those though could be only temporary although I will have to check again online.
I did check and added in where there were other answers more possible choices, stay tuned there is a rather high learning curve for all this and it is a daily process for me.

Any-who, I would like to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy good night and ask you all to kindly count all your blessings and share all those overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
