Tuesday, January 31, 2012

now hope that works, and this is only cos we are interested in this one, not sure about anything yet, just wanted you to see.

    Nice view, but the kitchen work triangle is beyond atrocious. If you don't love to cook or can muster a bit of rearranging, it would work. Leave the sink where it is, move the dishwasher where the stove is and put the stove 18" left of the fridge (just leftish of the nuker).

But really ... LOVE the view. :)

Sunday a good day other than back pain

Sunday, January 29, 2012

I am having a good day despite the back pain... It is a tad better but still there when I move a certain way or get up from a chair.
We went to the rv show but was a waste of $$ as there were only 3 motorhomes, so we then went for lunch, funny how we always have a great time and chat when we go out. I had baked halibut and veggie and tea so very pleased! especially since it twas on a whim to go out.
Then we get home, talking about cars vs trucks, vs motor home, vs keeping trailer. Then he says you do realize that cos the bills are paid we can still sell this house and look for something else. Well I guess I knew it but at the same time, figured we had it all organized, I am thinking that with my back so bad, hubby is wondering about this 3 level house even with a bath on this floor. He did say that he is willing to find something that we would stay in that is just outside the city and then fix it some if need be depending on price. So been looking again cos I love doing that anyway. Found one in a very good price just 2 streets over and if we fixed it up some etc. would sell for a lot as the houses around there are much more. I said to hubby wonder why this is lower, think cos it is smaller.
But just playing around, more houses will come on the market in the next month or so. I didn't see too many that I would like, about 4 maybe. anyway.......
We walked about 1.5 hrs at the rv show but we also didn't go fast so am only going to take about 20 mins to post as my walk today. emoticon

So a good day, tomorrow we take dad to dr, he is having something taken off his leg and we aren't sure if he will need a ddrive so just going with him. He is going to want to go to tims, so I will have a green tea and nothing else! I can do that. then not sure what else to do, maybe we will go drive to see these 3 houses as a driveby. I am not sure as it is supposed to snow but not much. Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyy just going day to day but doing well.
Still doing well on my primal diet stuff and learning lots. A few new spark friends have been doing this type for while and am learning about books, websites, and podcasts. Interesting stuff.
night all

    Sounds like you're still keeping your options open Cinders, perhaps you should go for a bungerloe, someone on one level. I've discussed something similar as we're not getting any younger and DH's knees are giving out, it'll be that or a stair lift!

    Love looking at houses!!. Perhaps would be a good idea if you thought about one all on the same level ..
We are not getting any younger and stairs are not a good thing ..
have fun!

Friday day 4

Friday, January 27, 2012

Had a cute conversation with dil today, she had rice krispie square ( which ds dosn't eat or let Thomas have much of) anyway she was sitting with her coffee and a square, Thomas says mmmm, mmmmm, so Anna says what do you say ( trying to teach please and thank you) he says want some? cos they say to him want some when giving him supper. she laughed said say please, he said pe. she gave him some and it continued want some?? so it was gone and he looked at her coffee she said NO hot, it is coffee and hot. He says ohhhh, then looks in the cup and say PLEASE. lol so she got up and gave him his sippy cup. Shows that he can talk, but I think just can't be bothered unless he wants something. He also says ahhh baby, and rocks the chair saying weeee. he is a real mimiker.

On our way to dd, to mabye go to the hardware store, not sure. Hubby is going to take the caulk out of her tub and re do with silicone. Will see how he is after if we are going anywhere else. Schools were cancelled cos snow, rain, ice is on it's way. it is snowing right now but not bad, of course the icy and rain is at 4-6 right at busy time. argh

I am doing well eating less carbs, but do have to figure it out more, I dont' want the cramps I got doing paleo in the summer, so not really paleo more primal and veggies this time. But am enjoying my greenish smoothies! at least I know I am getting more veggies daily.

Best get going, think it will be the bike or maybe wts today, Yea think I will try some wts today. not sure hubby will want to walk after dd and depends on weather. so a joyinky walk and some wts. even if I just do a bit myself.
keep sparking and I will keep learning about what my body needs, know it doesn't need the refined junk but have to find what else it does need.
HUGS sparkers!!!

I walked for 10 mins and did weights for 5 emoticon

    Sounds like to are staying the course and doing quite well. Rice Krispie squares are my DH's favorite treat. I make them occasionally for him and I try to avoid them at all costs! emoticon

Tomorrow is my birthday and so I might treat myself to a piece of cake, since my girlfriend is taking me to lunch.

I'm proud of you for getting in touch with you body and recognizing it's needs. Keep on keeping on, cause I'm cheering for you! emoticon

    I'm with your DS - I would not give Thomas rice krispie squares or coffee. Ugh. LOL. Your DIL will have to be very careful what she eats around Thomas as he will want it too.

I hope the snow and ice goes north of us. We have lucked out this year.

OH the sun is out! day 3

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Sun is out and it is cold. Seems always when sun is out it is colder. I am going to have to bundle up for our walk. Or my walk but presuming he will come.
Saw on FB that a lady my age, who I worked with at the nursing home, her hubby has passed. I don't know of what or wyhy but it does make you stop and think. I am pretty sure he is same age as she cos we all brought in pics and it was him and her years ago. I am going to message a friend who still works there and see. My heart goes out to her as it must be such a hard thing.
Talk to you all tomorrow. cya emoticon

    Maybe your scale isn't accurate. 6lb variable in one day sounds like a lot. Make sure it's on a flat, hard surface...carpets/rugs can give inaccurate readings. Good job on staying on track! You've got a lot going on!

TEMPEST272002 1/26/2012 3:17PM

    Step awwwaaay from the scale. It is not your friend. Too many variables affect the scale to even list. I stick to once per week weigh ins & hide it away in dark closets the rest of the time.

    We seldom have sun here in winter and when we do it is cold, like you said.

So sorry about the woman's husband you worked with. I have lost a ton of friends already in my lifetime.

Good job on the eating. I need to do the same.

BITTYGIRL51 1/26/2012 11:39AM

    Yes, stay off the scale! The scale is not an accurate measure unless you stay on your program, weigh only once a week, at the same time of day and under the same conditions. (Clothing).

Even then, you will have unexplainable gains and just stay the course and do what you know works. Don't peek!! emoticon

    I totally agree with Susie; that's why I don't own a scale! I weigh once or twice a month at the gym. If you continue to make healthy choices and are consistent; the scale won't matter! Enjoy that sunshine! It's worth bundling up for! Hugs.

    Way to go on the clean and healthy eating .
Good that you are walking too ..
I usually only weigh myself to record for Sparks..
The scales are not a good indication... as they will fluctuate.
The best way of noting your progress is by the way your clothes fit or your measurments ..
Keep tracking and all will be well !
Hugs Susie

Wednesday day 2

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

of at least 10 mins of exercise... Think we may go for a walk later. Also have to go to the mall but don't count that walking cos it is so slow, walking with hubby is slow anyway but the mall, I tell him it is like shuffling along with an old man. Me I know what I want or what I want to find and go to stores that have it, I am not a window shopper, but will sit and people watch lol
Had my green smoothie and a boiled egg this am. Feel good. Not happy with the scale, but why do I get on argh it is way up again but will wait and see on Sat. for the end of the winter challenge. I am going to keep going full speed ahead and hopefully lose before the spring challenge starts. So go fly scale... I don't feel as bloated and feel better and that counts too.
Rain melted the snow, but is a dull damp day, tad cold. Strange winter it seems almost everywhere. I haven't minded no snow but best not talk too soon still till time till April - it has snowed here later than that.
Okay rambling on, going to go start some laundry and do a touch of dishes, supper is ready so won't have to make anything this eve.
Have a great day sparkers, I am going to get my charm and BELIEVE it all is possible!!!

HI all, back from mall, got my believe charm and 2 small very tiny ones of light purple stones to put on either side. Hubby wanted those ones but knows that purple is my fav. colour and that the believe is the most imp. charm to me. Sometimes he is so sweet.
We also got out for a 20 min walk with the dog, and hubby wasn't as slow. So good. Today has been good pain wise too, mostly not there.
I finally watched super size me, yea but better late than not at all. Have Food Inc to watch later.
Okay have eaten all clean, no sugar and doing well, smoothie for breakfast a huge salad with some chicken for lunch and homemade fricot ( chicken soup) for supper. May have an apple later on.
So Day 2- 20 min walk!!! emoticon

    Woo Hoo. Fly scale fly! I like that one. My hubby is a slow walker too. It drives me crazy to go through a store with him. Me, I'm in & out. He has to stop & look at everything then backtracks to make sure he didn't miss anything. And that is just the grocery store. Heaven save me from WalMart! Hugs!

Sounds like a great plan. Even sounds like hubby walked a little too. Bring on the chocolate. I never find it hard to resist. Ask God for all the help you need. He has the answers.
