Day 9 of 100 and not daunted!

Friday, July 18, 2014

Good sunny humid morning spark buddies! After 4 days of fog, damp and drizzle, nice to see the sun and it is to stick around! Good weekend.

Oddly enough, dh doesn't want to go to the trailer again this weekend!!?? He said he has his momentum going to getting stuff done and doesn't want to go. OKay just so strange but fine by me if he works on the back yard awesome. Also I was walking the dog and a truck stopped to answer his phone and when he was finished I asked see that house, has 2 shingles missing. How much do you charge to do a patch job, he said if you remind me and you have the shingles, I will send someone around and hmm you could pay him 100$ will send him on way home. I said okay that is super is he still insured if he falls. Yes. Okay we will find the shingles and call you. He gave me his card and I will save it to give to ds who needs roof repairs too.

So Sunday, is my nieces wedding shower, she is in Colorado but her mum is doing one here, via Skype. Sort of weird and only money gifts as she has to take them all down to her for the wedding. Since none of hubby's side is going, and we are close to that sil and niece, I am going to go and perhaps my dd. So it is near the trailer so we will go up, pay the hydro bill, and get my hair dryer from the trailer and whatever else we want in case we don't go. Okay. I figured we would go all next week as it is our 37th wedding anniversary and he would enjoy a full 5 days or so. I know dad is okay and dd checks him daily x2 when we aren't here. Oh well will see. perhaps we will go on a day trip. Whatever, no worries.

Food wise been doing great. I have only had one hungry day and now perhaps I was just hungry. But I got by without eating any snacks just had my water and tea. We are going out with dad for lunch. Fish and chips. only thing on the menu as it is the legion he supports. He isn't eating much lately, and wants to go so we go. He wont go alone. But I get one pc and don't eat all the fries. I will have a salad and protein of some kind for supper. All is well.

Allie is still doing well, hoping it continues as been reading and most dogs have to keep going up on the pills, after a while and gets to be way too many pills. Also some get a GI bleed from them. So hope this works. I hate to see her get sick and need GI surgery or have to take her to the vet school in PEI that is $$$$$ and a trip involved. OH well thinking the best just learning signs and symptoms to make sure we see it early if anything starts.

Okay enough chat, going to tidy dads area a bit. And then do my stretches and such. Got the curtains sewed and hung and 2 pr of jeans hemmed and mine taken in at the waist! I was busy yesterday, perhaps that is why I wasn't hungry! LOL Getting hubby to put my sewing machine away, think I am finished and I cant lift it anymore.

HUGS and have a super day. NO matter the weather but will say hope all the sparkers out west are safe from the numerous forest fires.

    How nice that you're doing well with the No S!
And I'm so glad Allie is doing well. I don't know what GI means. I hope she will do fine.

Day 7 persevered through yesterday

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Morning all, Super humid and starting to rain. Fine if the humidity would lift a bit. whew. My back sure isn't liking this but at least I can still walk better than last week.
Yesterday was a tougher day food wise. I did great, didn't step off the line but sure did waver. I was hungry then later in day I was again. I reviewed what I ate, and not sure why. I had protein at all meals and thought I had enough. So going to make a better breakfast this am, and then maybe at lunch add in some yogurt and berries. Will tweak it and see, but the best is I didn't stop and eat or mindless reach for anything.

Have to get a few things done today and out for allies pills and a few groceries for us. I need a run to the veggie store and the meat store too. Not the regular processed grocery store lol

Just got a call, spark friend is coming for visit after her dr appointment! That will be nice and can see first hand how she is doing as she fell recently.

Okay off to make breakfast and tidy up. Take care HUGS all

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.

    Sounds like you did great today. Pretty sure blueberry wine counts as a healthy food - all those antioxidents. lol

    Hello Cindy .. Sound awesome that you are doing well .
Do you see the relationship between less Sugar and your pain levels ? .. I also find that no sugar means less pain .. Hope you get your water heater sorted ..
Thinking of you my friend .. Love Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon

Saturday, July 12, 2014

OMG a slight breeze to keep the heat down a bit and no humidity. This is how I need to live year round! LOL don't let hubby read this! LOL

So today is an S day and I am doing fine. haven't over indulged and don't plan to, I may be a bit high in cals depends haven't charted supper but we are having bbq with kids, nothing special so should be fine.

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!!
