Boxing Day

Monday, December 26, 2011

Well have to get dressed to go to visit other side of family in a bit. It is snowing but not hard so hope the drive will be a good one, we have studded tires so should be okay.
I have the sweets, treats and rapure ready to go. Hubby stayed up and baked the rapure while I finally went to bed just after 12. Dog woke me at 7:30 which is rare for her but fine. I sat with tree lights on and read - that crazy sexy diet book by Kriss Carr. I really enjoy reading it and learn from it. Never know what veggies I may learn to like! After all finally sweet potatoes granted they had a touch of br sugar but not much and she roasted them in oven, turned out much better than mine did! LOL
Taking a large batch of sweets up for the crowd, have a small pkg of hubbys favs here, and another batch in freezer for when we go to PEI in mid Jan. I really don't want any. For 2 days now I have had very limited sweets and really not that interested!! Lets hope this stays. Think for my bday will buy the crazy sexy diet book as it is so interesting. I also may get a smoothie one but can find tons of that online so may not.
Guess better go get dressed. I have still some pain in my L foot, and my R knee is sore but am still mobile. I have great ideas and plans for the coming year! I WILL DO THIS and every time I get weak I will search in my list of reasons to be healthy.
HUGS and may be back later when we get home. cya later sparkies!

A very Great day Merry Christmas

Sunday, December 25, 2011

We woke and went to dads where we had Ds and Thomas over too! lol what a busy boy and we were busy following him, only one mishap. Dad has the caller thing where if you fall etc . and yup Thomas saw that bright red light one too many times. LOL are you okay sir?? yes my great grandson saw your red light and we didnt'' catch him in time. lol
Then we got home where hubby made apple pie to take to sil. Had a great time at sil, I ate and wasn't full, felt good. Brother in law got as a gift home made MacIntoshtoffee cheesecake. I had a avery tiny sliver as I love the toffee but not a lot of butterscotchy taste. Then I had my tea and nothing NOTHING ELSE even though the sweet tray was in front of me. YES and I am not stuffed or feeling ill.
Tomorrow I hope to do the same, have some fricot ( chicken soup sort of) a pc of rapure and pottie ( meat pie) and if there is something in the sweet dept will have one. I really am not hungry the past 2 days or so. So doing well. even though I had a gain this week past, again, I know part is cos no real exercise. I am ready to go again, my knee is still very bad but will work with it and hope to get moving again.
HUGS and hope you all had a good day too!!!

    Sounds like a great day. Well done with eating. Look after the knee. Mine felt dodgy doing reverse lunges today so I stopped. I don't need anymore joint issues! There's lots of exercises that don't strain knees.

Christmas eve and some heavy thinking

Saturday, December 24, 2011

While I try not to worry about dd and hubby driving in the bad weather I started thinking, some deep thinking for a Christmas eve, but hey why not. Hubby is "in line" on line to shop for his Christmas present on boxing day sales when it isn't even Christmas - to me that is nuts, start your sales on the right day but greed...........
I have been thinking about this weight I have to get off. aporx 50 lbs and may as well be 250 cos don't seem to get with it.
So been thinking and talking to myself ala dr phil and few others. Such as hows whatcha doin workin for ya... oh it isn't well what are you going to do diff....
if you want change you have to change.
if you always do what you always did, you always get what you got...
you all get my drift!
So been really trying to figure what is going to change Jan 1 just cos the calendar changes, and I get a year older LOL.
Well if I am not willing to change how I do things, how I think of things, then why do I expect this weight to fall off me?? Unless I get ill very ill I won't lose this, I remember when mum was first diagnosed, she said geesh great I am losing wt and I thought yea I know why you are losing cos you are starting to get sick...... I have so many stupid health issues that some could be stopped or helped with diet and exericise. I don't mean "diet" as in wt loss, but as in proper food, healthy clean fresh food.
So really thinking what will I change, how fast am I willing to try to make these changes so they become habit not just hey eat this for while and lose, gain it back do it again... been there done that have some friends doing the soup thing right now..
If I am going to really change habits then has to be done in a way that I will do this and incoperate it into my daily routine.

Any ideas, any really truthful thoughts on what are you going to do diff. A very special spark friend asked me to think daily - what can I do today to make my tomorrow a healthier better day for me... that worked till I started forgetting to ask myself that.
So one thing is to remember to ask myself that, will print it out in big letters...
another will be to take the time to do a 30 mins back care yoga daily... along with some quiet meditation. I enjoy it, feel better after so why do I stop doing it?
I will ensure that I get at least 3 veggies a day and 2 fruit, that is my starting point as that is a downfall for me.
and most of all and hardest for many is to look in the mirror less harshly, less critical and always smile at the person looking back at me... cos you know if you don't love yourself, then why should anyone else bother to love you.
HUGS and would love to know what you plan to truthfully incorperate in the new year that will help you get to your goals and MAINTAIN them!!!
HUGS and Merry Christmas!!!

Missing mum

Friday, December 23, 2011

Well this eve while at the legion for supper with dad, hubby and dd too, I took a croissant from the selection. When I took it, I thought of my mum and that was it, got back to the table and nearly started to cry, when I took the first bite. For the last few months of her life, she wanted croissants to eat. I took that bite and omg it was so wierd,it was just totally a remembrance of her. Strange but it was there. I didn't want to start to cry, cos then dd and dad would have. But am fine now just was a funny memory.
Also while at the legion, I went to the bathroom and saw myself in the mirror and thought ew... I don't like that fold on my belly ew... I have one side more than the other since my hyst. but I don't like either side LOL Made me feel sad and thought I will get that off and feel better in the bargain.
Well time to just rest this eve, we didn't get to the store today, as took too much time at dd tub. oh well will run out for the 4 things and then go to sons for brunch.
Okay think I will go have a bath, put on the candles, read and fall asleep, hubby comes up to check me and the candles lol
night all safe travels for any going to family tomorrow.

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.

    I'm going to let you enjoy the snow. I can live without it. We have about a 1/2 in. Just enough to make things a little white.

    Thanks for sending me a snowflake! It will most likely be the only snow I see until 2012; unseasonably warm here this year too! Lots of rain though. I won't miss the snow but the kids will. They'd love to be able to get out in it while on Christmas break! I'm impressed with how ready you are for the weekend. Have a wonderful one and enjoy your family! Hugs!

We've been told no snow this year. Not sure if I'm pleased or not; I can't build a snowman as I'd hoped but it's s'posed to be really warm (for this time of year) on Crimbo Day so we might walk off the feast!

Merry Crimbo Cinders, luv and emoticon

    No snow here. FL relatives coming wish it would, but we get wet slushy - icy roads as we are below the hard snow line.

    I've never seen snow ... it's on my bucket list of things to do. I so want to take a sleigh ride, all bundled up, with the snow coming down. Yesterday it was 85, so looks like no snow skis or sleds will be delivered on Christmas where I live. Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas, Patty
