TNNA, Long Beach

Eric and I attended TNNA in Long Beach, a show put on by The National Needleworks Association. It was a lovely event held for the trade industry only. We ran into several friends of mine while there... next year, I would like to spend several days at it and maybe take some classes too. Eric, on the other hand, was a very good sport. Not much of interest to him, but he never complained. Not even once.

The Long Beach Convention Center is a very pretty place. I didn't try to take pictures inside because I had a feeling that they may frown upon it and it was a forum in which I'd rather not get in trouble.

It was a gorgeous day today in the greater Los Angeles area... 80 degrees and sunny. After finishing up at the show, I was really glad that I had packed us a picnic lunch. Yes. In a pick-a-nick basket, but sans Yogi Bear. Egg white salad on a Low Carb pita with tomato, onion, and mixed herbed greens. An apple for dessert.

We found a park right on the water that overlooked the Queen Mary. And that is a Carnival Cruise Lines ship behind her. Yes, this is exactly where Richard's Cruise to Lose will depart from next April.
We also had a beautiful view of the skyline of Downtown Long Beach...
And in the distance, the Port of Long Beach, part of the greater Port of Los Angeles.
Ah... today was far too short. And yes, I stayed on food program. Again.

All in all, a good week for weight loss

Oh no! Another meal description! I guess I'd better give one to you: Breakfast. It's a school day and I have to pack two lunches, so breakfast must be a quick assembly. 1/2 cup of Trader Joe's low fat granola and a banana. No milk. Dry, dry, dry. I followed it up with half my quota of today's water. Lunch, since you are so into this stuff: 1/2 cup of nonfat cottage cheese with 3/4 cup blueberries. Because I have a sweet tooth, I added two packets of Nutrasweet. For crunch, I've got 4 pretzels on the side. To drink I'll be having Walmart's version of sugar free pink lemonade. Mmmmm! Hard not to overindulge with such tasty meals! *A* PS: Kudos to Eric for surviving the day. It must be love!
