My dd is so happy, it is snowing - a fair bit has come down. I like the look but the mother and worrier wishes the roads were clear for everyone that has to travel. Stay safe, take your time, and watch out for others.
Okay.... today we go to dd again. yes as Thomas says aaaaaaahhhhhgn. lol Hubby will be putting the tub surround on today then only the window trim and baseboard. that can be another day as don't think we are going to the store for that today. DD is doing her baking today. one thing for her hubbys potluck, and then some to take to her inlaws with her. We have a short list for the grocery store as sister in law asked hubby to make apple pie to bring on Christmas. Fine cos then I don't have to do anything. I got Thomas his cookies made. Hope he likes them.
So all is baked, wrapped and ready. I have a clean house, and am ready. will do a load of laundry today but thats okay. We are not expecting company unless hubby asks his mum if she wants to come home with us on boxing day so she can go see lisa and mike and their home, and also of course meet the baby adn visit with Thomas and his dad and mum. Been a long time since she has seen ds too.
Okay off we go, hope all is well with you all.
I did some exercise today, and am back to joyinky walks.

So I gave myself a talking to! lol I have been wanting chocolate big time, so had 4 of those small mints, the gangong ones for the Canadians, they are small like a mini pepermint pattie. Then we have some cruts - choco. cookies just marg, cocount and cocoa, had them. OMG I don't justify it I just do it. then say duh nut you are!
I am being really foolish, thinking I can't wait till Jan 1. WHY I did so great that first week but know I did my usual - did too much and hurt myself, My knees and calves hurt so much. But as long as I wear my support socks my calves are better, I have to reemember to tell this to the dr in Feb when I go.
OKay today, we went out and got a few little kitchen gadgets as hubbys sisster will be joining us on boxing day ( her birthday) and we never seem to do anything for her, and I know how that is with my bdy new years eve. So all is bought, other than hubby likes to get me something last min. why who knows as he hates crowds lol so didn't find the flours I needed to make Thomas some cookies so will have to hope and improvise.... eeek.
going to dd to finish the bathroom by tomorrow!!!! and then to library and home. I was going to run to the store for a few more items but you know I don't need to make anything more. But can alwayws take to sils on boxing day.
OKAY come on give it to me I can take it and who knows someones "kicking" may make me get real again!!!
Even said hey you - you are going to be a 5ker you can't eat this shi!. lol

Well yesterday I was up 1.2 lbs this am, weigh day up 2.6 felt like I was on biggest loser lol but am as they also say not beating myself up from this cos I am actually trying and learning from this.
Observations from the past week where I lost 3. something lbs to this week.
- didn't drink my water most days and even less tea as we were out ( I count my tea as it is green and very weak nothing added to it)
- no elliptical at all cos of knee
- walked the mall for 3 days in a row but hurt knee cos of it
- 4 meals out although I made good choices and one I didnt eat so guess that doesnt count. Made good choices but compounded with the no water, and less movement....
-too many little bites from some xmas snacks
So what I have learned from all this. Drink my water, MODERATE exercise when able, and keep on learning.
This week in the 5% challenge is going to be a tough one for me. I am up to the challenge........... it is eat your freggies. as you who know me know, veggies are not my strong suit. But have some great ideas, have also been reading a lot on what is good for you and what helps what.
I will stop at daves fruits and veggies and load up and I WILL EAT THEM not toss in compost bin.
So yes I am up, yes I am frustrated cos yet again today my knee is very painful. but.... I am proud to say I haven't given up, I know what I did wrong, right and partially right. I am still in the fight and am going to try my best. As I said in the beginning as long as I can maintain or lose during this time it will be a goal reached. Somehow have to get my movement better and more.
OH sigh....... got the letter back from insurance, yes the physio place sent the letter but it was ias if it was allready done, so they didnt approve it or disaprove it just said have to fill in the insurnaace forms to see if I can get my $$ back. well I haven't bought it yet so called they said oh. send it all back with a note saying this is just a quote. I told the physio to put hat it was a quote but ... oh well at least the insurance didn't say no! but still I wait, oh well I hope yet to get the brace see no reason why not.
off I go to move some more!!! dog walked, and then going to do some shorter joyinkys.

Sucker sucker for punishment I am!!! DD and hubby and I at the mall Sat. for hours, then yesterday just hubby and I and today the three of us again. hubby and I are done other than each other and he wants $ for boxing day sales at best buy or future shop. Me I may take money from dad rather than gift card cos my bday is just after so will put it together and either do yoga or something. I am hoping we can cover yoga ourselves as I would like to get a bit of stuff. But whatever.
So tomorrow... I will go to yoga for backcare and thats about it, oh yea........ lol forgot have books to take back to the library.
A tad worried that I will gain this week, cos been out to eat 2x as we were out shopping, made good choices but still, and not able to exercise as well cos of my knees but then they are sore cos we walked all day from 11 till 6 other than the 45 mins for lunch. So it is walking LOL a type of joyinky walking haha.
So in a bit I will go have a nice soak, and take a book to bed. But finding that laying in bed will make my legs ache so have to watch how long I lay down. Oh well will find that perfect amount of rest sometime. I wish I would get a letter from the insurance as to if they will pay for the brace.
Okay friends, will check on my emails, then am turning this off and resting, not even doing dishes, they will be there in the am. I can not stand at the sink tonight as that bothers my back on best days. not many there as we have dishwasher.
HUGS and on to Tuesday with a smile. cos as this going around on FB says
with Charlie brown and Snoopy, what if we were just thankful for everything! and I am... thankful that I have hubby and dd to go shopping with,
thankful that we have the car to get around, that we got around safe as there was a 3 car accident on our way home, that we have the $$ to go shopping, that my body carried me even though it did complain LOL and that I am able to rest now and not have to go to work tomorrow.
HUGS and always be thankful cos there is always something to be thankful for.
