My nephew has a nut, peanut, dairy and coconut allergy.. OMG the poor kid!!! I just can't handle gluten, that is nothing compare to my nephew!
So.. I have to make for day and I figured I'll make one that we can both eat and Karina's to the rescue!
OOOH... and we are having one of my best friends from high school and her husband over for dinner this weekend!!! Planning on a great recipe of slow cooked beef ribs. Need to do a side dish, probably a salad of some sort, and a dessert. Thinking of mocha gelato recipe I got from SP.
Have to think of things to do this night so we don't just sit and catch up, it's been over 25 yrs, do not want to drive our SO's crazy! Any suggestions welcome!
Hey everyone. I have been maintaining my current weight for a month now! Super pumped!!!
I have been getting my power walks in still if the temps are not too much below 55. This week looks like I should be able to get them all in w/o a problem.
I am still maintaining my calorie consumption from when I was working on loosing. I did not increase like so many people I hear are saying you should do. I find it hard to consume the minimum some times, so why would I add more?
Going square dancing tonight... woo hoo
Saw the play HairSpray last Saturday night, it was GREAT!
That was so strange yesterday. Came on real sudden, major sinus pressure, blowing my nose constantly. Driving home was a chore as all I wanted to do was sleep!
1/2 way thru dinner the pressure released and this morning I really don't feel much of anything.
very strange.. but very glad the pressure's gone!!! Cold is still lingering though.. I am freezing.. so I have some hot tea .
Very weird is how much water your skin absorbs in the shower! I jumped on the before I got in the shower, usually always do this after shower and drying my hair. I'm thinking I'm a little bloated, probably a little higher than yesterday and low an behold it's really low. ??? Jumped on again after the shower and it went up to my current of 107.5 1.5 pounds more from before the shower? Who would have thought your skin would absorb 1.5 pounds of moisture?
Did my Curves work out today, have to mow the lawn and pick up leaves, (I have to warm up!) do some grocery shopping.. going to make Southwest Chicken Stew from SP recipes for dinner.. yum.
Okay... I made my status this morning happy and bummed and a friend gave in and asked why so I figured I might as well blog it 'eh?
I am because I am loved by many.
I am because my BF is very proud of my weight loss accomplishment and my desire to stay healthy.
I am because my scale said I was lower than my current ticker.
I am because I am wearing a really slimming size 1/2 jeans and they do not feel tight.
I am because my stomach was flat today.
I am because my BF's sister is not happy and ignored family and friends trying to get in touch with her. I do not know all the reasons, but it is unfortunate that she felt this way because she is loved, and loved by many. For reasons known to her and maybe we will find out later when we get the letter, she decided to end her life. Will be w/ family tonight to plan out the funeral. My BF and I are that she felt so miserable that she felt this was the only way to go. We are hoping that her younger cousins will be okay. We are worried about the effect of this on them the most.
I am because I heard a friend that is far away is in trouble and this worries me.
Remember to be thankful for all that you have. The good, the love. Take the bad and look for something positive in it and grow from it.
