Monday Morning and feeling great day 5

Monday, July 14, 2014

Morning sparkers. Today is a NO S day, back at it again after a bit more sweets, snacks but no 2nds than I wanted. That is to be expected first weekend on this plan. Fine by me, cos I want to be back at it. I am ready for this morning. Have a plan ready if the snack monster calls. I will go finish the curtains. I have to do them slowly cos standing at the ironing board pinning the hems hurts my back. So one side at a time. No worries they will be done.

Also I will ensure I drink my water and if I think I am hungry I will drink a glass of water first. Especially these days of a nice summer. I so enjoyed this past week and weekend. Perhaps cos the last 2 were super pain or maybe cos I feel as if I have a plan, am on track. Oh both probably. Certainly helps when you can move, even slightly after the pain of the prior 2 wks.

Okay, today, towel laundry, then go with hubby to get new water heater, perhaps stop in at ds work or he will call him. I told him you should have asked last night cos now his car is full of car seats etc... but he didn't oh well his issue. not a biggie. We may go weigh Allie at the vets to make sure all is okay there, She doesn't have to go yet as long as all goes fine.
Odds and ends to get done. Hoping to finish the curtains, take in a pr of jeans dd got that are too big and she gave them to me, and too big for me too. only size 14 so a huge 14. lol hem them and perhaps hubbys jeans too. Doubt all that sewing in one day. but again no problem it will be there.

I have been really working on not worrying or at least not on what can't be changed and that I have to just go with the flooooooooowww. Doing better. do have times of course, we all do but on the whole better. Now better go see what Allie sees as she is barking and it is only 8 am, hubby still in bed, window is open right above her LOL

HUGS all and have the best day you can today! I certainly plan to!

Day 4 only noon

Sunday, July 13, 2014

Well 2nd S day and doing great. yes I had some sweets but OMG I didn't overdue! I did fine.

Our bbq is a regular meal that we have just daughter and soninlaw where over. We have hamburgers and salad. So had a huge garden salad, and a hamburger. Did have 2 glasses of dd homemade blueberry wine. Later I had a very small serv. of ice cream. it is in the fridge as it is dd and she wasn't going home and I haven't wanted or touched it.

Today is S too but nothing has called my name, I am doing well, I guess I just have to be ready as I tried 2 wks ago and no go.

Our water heater is leaking... sigh... figures so one on sale this week, 279. plus 15% tax. Dad says wow is that installed. Hubby laughed said ha in box you don't even get delivery.
Oh well not going to have much with that money we get from back pay but oh well. at least we have it to use. Thank God.

Okay off to get a bit done. Hubby has to work on jacking the deck as when the workers put on dads ramp and didn't make sure ours was tight. At least he knows how to do it and we have what we need.

off I go, to either paint some trim on dads area, or just tidy house. Pain today is manageable. not as good as yesterday but that too is good.

An all around good day. OH have to go let dd dogs out later as they went on a day trip for her hubbys last day of vacation.

    The BBQ sounded nice. I enjoy things like that. We bought a lifetime warranty water heater. I wonder whose lifetime that is. LOL.

My hubby and I have been trying to fix a better 02 box for our little sick pet.

Did yard sale with dd at last minute, slow day but I made 28$ so that was bonus and an empty tub!! that makes me happy as have so much junk since dad moved in and took all our strorage area!

Okay off to read for bit, then tidy before bbq. Have a super day all!!

Day 2 - 10 pm and day was a success

Friday, July 11, 2014

Well in the NO S way it was, dad wanted to go out for supper but I drank water, had my supper and that was it. ( not a super great choice but this place hasn't many healthy choices so am pleased). I enjoyed the company as dd and son in law came along with the 3 of us.

Got my steps in and also got some laundry and shopping done. Even got a few things priced for a yard sale that dd decided to have tomorrow am. Hubby put them in the car and I will go down and son in law will help take them out.

Pain was better, some spasms in back, and my knee still very tight, A few bad charly horses in my foot but at least the back wasn't as bad.

Hope you are all well and I am off to bed!
HUGS all on to DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY 3 tomorrow!

Oh forgot a funny. Dil called I am so enjoying being a mum right now. I said okay...... I don't hear screaming etc. OH that is done. Eva fell asleep watching a show, Thomas starts SCREAMING oh mama I am sos so soss orry I swallowed a treasure, one of Evas streasures. He swallowed a smooth small rock type glass that you put in flower vases. Eva has a few that she likes to carry cos they are pretty and her treasures. He said I know not to put it in my mouth but I was wetting it to be shinier. LOL Sure all should be well, he got to call papa at work and papa told him about swallowing a quarter. granted ds was about 7 not 4. lol Anyway he asked for a drink, so he could make a bubble and the treasure would fit in the bubble and then he could poop out the bubble!!! Go figure how a child thinks.
Then dd calls think the dog has a tick what did you do when you found the one on allie.... after a few calls she had that sorted out. LOL

Okay off to bed to read! Night all. HUGS

THINK Healthy, EAT Healthy, BE Healthy.

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Yes I have been here for way too many years not to have gotten to goal, or to even done better. I am the proverbial yo - yo, back and forth. Well I am sick of this and have promised myself that I will start another 100 day challenge. This has worked for me in the walking, however I love to walk. It has been a challenge though, because my knee has gotten worse and along with that my back. Many days hubby has said how many steps have you got, come on you can go that 200 more etc. Great to say that the majority of days are over 11, 000 although some are in 10,000. But my goal was 10,000 steps for 100 days and as of July 21 I will have done it. I am continuing on with it and will until my knee surgery which will of course stop that challenge for while. lol

I have been thinking of what I can do, going over different things in my head and negating them all as too hard, too much work, I can't - I DON'T WANT to is more like it.
Day before yesterday I sat and talked to hubby before he went for his dr apt. Didn't help much on him exercising more, but he was amendable to less sugar for him and in the house. We both agree on healthy eating but he isn't able to eat raw veggies and limited fruit so hard to get his amounts in. Whatever that is no reason to stop me. It hasn't in the past and won't again now. But having hubby on board with some of it is certainly helpful.

I am going to go back to NO S plan along with more veggies. He has agreed no more jubes, no more bought cookies etc. I will make this one recipe of very healthy cookies when and if we want them on Saturdays only. I will put 2 out for sat for each and 2 for Sunday for each. Rest I will freeze. I have a better plan and am willing. So starting today. so far so good, ate well and charted food.

I can do it for 100 days, and know that it is viable for life. This doesn't restrict any food, just when you eat it. And often people say I will have that sweet tomorrow, it will still be there and are able to keep postponing it. I don't do well with moderation and having it around. Perhaps some day I will but not now. I swear my switch for stop eating is broken. lol so easy way just don't start except on S days.

I am truly going to do this, I said I would walk for 100 days and I am saying I will do this. I have plans, teams and my journal all in place. I have all of you guys here that help me. If anyone wants to join me on their own 100 day choice please do...

And at the end of the 100 days........ October 17th. Ekkk fall is coming. I love fall but we are just starting summer! I am going to be able to say...

    What a wonderful blog. You can do this! My 15 year old grandson is a gymnast with a goal to make it to the Olympics and he is so motivated to eat the healthy diet required for gymnasts. While I was recently on vacation with him, he wanted to cook and have me try some of his recipes and they were very good. He made a banana ice cream, microwaved apple and cinnamon. His mom says he is on Pinterest looking for recipes that contain no sugar and no white flour. So, you just have to have the motivation and it surely sounds like you do. Good luck. Enjoy the journey!

    I absolutely love your determination and congrats on accomplishing so many steps!! Your next 100 day challenge sounds great and will definitely have an impact on improving your health.

If your hubby relapses into old habits, one compromise that we do in our house is to have a lock box. He puts all of his treats in there and I have no idea where the key is, ha ha! Wishing you much success in the days to come.

    Great blog!
I'm impressed you have been getting so many steps in even with a bad knee.

My husband doesn't eat as healthy as I do, but I have found he tends to follow my lead. I've never asked him to change his eating habits, but he does gradually change on his own. Since cancer is such a motivator for me to eat healthy, I am rarely tempted by foods he brings into the house.

Wishing you the best as you work on changing your habits. The walking is a huge, great start!
