Sunday Musings

Sunday, July 15, 2012

emoticon I think these are tomatoes. Just had to share that we picked the first tomatoes of the season yesterday and sliced a couple for our noon meal today. There is nothing like that first bite of fresh, home-grown tomato! We were in heaven. Sliced a larger one for tonight and had tomato sandwiches. My all time favorite sandwich is white bread with Miracle Whip and a big thick slice of tomato with a tiny bit of salt and pepper. Mmmm! But, in the interests of better eating practices we had whole wheat bread and light MW. Still very yummy.

Actually, I'd never heard of a tomato sandwich until I was married and Richard asked why I'd consider putting anything else with it when you have nice and tasty tomatoes. Now we patiently tend the garden waiting for those first few to be ready to eat.

emoticon emoticon For today's Sunday dinner we also had some of our newly dug onions and Yukon Gold potatoes in a roaster pan with a nice beef roast. The carrots came from the market. I still try to make a Sunday dinner most weeks. Another side we had was sliced cucumbers and onions marinated in a slightly sweet vinegar solution. Also very yummy! This is my favorite time of year for managing our meals, as the garden keeps us supplied with so many healthy and wonderful things. emoticon
I'll have to try to snap a few photos again to show you how things have grown even though we've had to water a lot to get it this way. I think we've decided that we'll limit the watering to the tomatoes and peppers now. It just costs too much to water as much as it needs.

Now if I could just get my hands on some great Iowa sweet corn, I'd really be in 7th heaven. The last I bought was $5 a dozen and the ears were tiny. So sad! emoticon

Wishing you all Happy Summer eating!

    Sounds delicious. I've given up trying to grow anything in Texas. Just too hot and takes too much water which is expensive. Enjoy the veggies. I like a tomato sandwich as well.

    Okay, Jeannie, if you're trying to make me hungry and jealous, you did it lol! My sis used to be the tomato sandwich eater. She'd cut that tomato about 1/2" thick, but she liked Hellman's. I love them with bacon (no lettuce) or ham or just plain. Okay, so it's time for dinner. Glad you enjoyed your dinner. You guys worked extra hard this year on it!
Love you! Noel

    Everything from your own garden is so fresh and much more tasty than the story bought ones. I love tomatoes and will occasionally make myself a lettuce and tomato sandwich with a little light mayo. Yukon golds are my favorites so I hope you save some for me--I can dream, can't I--LOL! I love onions and in fact I don't think I've ever had a fresh one just store bought and I'm sure next to home grown it leaves a lot to be desired. You're eating so healthy and there is no stopping you now as you're at the gate of Onederland. It must be a such a good feeling to see your garden growing and then eating the fruits of your hard work!

The Day After the 5K MY Way

Saturday, July 07, 2012

Since I walked the 5K yesterday emoticon (70 minutes in case you missed my blog), and today would be a day of rest, I haven't been worrying too much about exercise today. In fact, I haven't thought about it at all until now when I was doing some Sparking. I think that's interesting in itself, as nothing hurts...my feet and legs are fine, nothing happened to my body to make me think walking that far in the heat was a bad idea, and I feel a little like something is missing from my routine and schedule. No...I'm still pretty positive I won't be training for a 10K--at least not now during the hottest part of the summer with a lot of summer weather left, and honestly I don't plan on ever walking that far at one time. It's so boring! emoticon

So what do I do? Going to a gym isn't an option for me. There is no pool anywhere near where we live. I could ride my bike some, but again, the weather isn't great for that as it has been way too windy. I will probably do more indoor exercise for awhile and pump up my stability ball. (Funny the way we call them stability balls when we're so unstable on them--at least I am.) I can use my little peddler and dance in my kitchen, too. emoticon

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be open to hear them. Since I don't really like exercise (also known as the E word) at all, it has to be something really good to interest me! LOL! emoticon

    emoticon again on the 5K. You did fantastic. I wonder if all your gardening in life has made a difference in your leg strength?
Hoping the heat is easing there as it did here last night! It certainly has made a big difference.

I don't know if it helps, but I walk the stairs more often and when shopping, i go down each isle at least once sometime a couple times. Keeps me out of the heat that I don't tolerate at all. You are doing great! A little R&R is always good too!
Have a great week ahead, Jeannie. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Jeannie, I'm still in awe that you actually did 70 minutes of walking in the heat. I'm really envious of how good of shape you're in otherwise I think you would have some aches or pains. Maybe in the Fall you'll start preparing for a 10K--never say never as you never know--LOL! When all else fails I will put an exercise DVD on and my favorite is still Anne Burnell's resistance Band one. It's only 30 minutes but is considered a strength exercise which I need so badly. With your E history this is probably too easy for you as it's all down sitting down. Mimi's was great! I think you'd enjoy going there. All our lunches were around $10 each except Noah's was $5. Supposedly they make their own muffins which are awesome although I didn't have one today. They always roast their own turkeys and their Turkey dinner with all the trimmings is $11 but it's worth it and very tasty. Average size portions mostly but everything is fresh--once you sign up for their club they are always e-mailing me good discount coupons. You're probably about ready to hit the "hay"! Have a good night's sleep sweetie.

Hugs,

Jill

    Jeannie, I have been very faithful for almost 2 months now. I still hurt, so you are very lucky indeed. I am not seeing the results that I thought I would be deeing either. And because of that I really don't like the E word. It was better for awhile but now it feels like my legs are getting weaker instead of stronger. Maybe I am trying to hard. LOL

But girl, I am really proud of you for doing a 5K especially with the heat you have been having. emoticon emoticon

    Jeannie, WooHoo!!! 5K and no aches and pains. I'm impressed!! Your training must have paid off. Since I am no fan of the E word either, I don't have any suggestions or recommendations as to what to do. I sometimes ride my recumbent bike, but haven't done that in a while. I know I need to get started again, but just can't seem to make myself do it. Oh well, someday, maybe...lol.
Keep up the great work. Take care!!

    I am impressed, 5K and no additional aches and pains!!!! It sounds like you have done a good job of getting into shape. emoticon I was hurting today just after shopping yesterday.
The E word I don't like. I know that some people say E 3 times a week, well I've found that if I don't do something daily it will fall by the wayside. My PT lady has me doing stretches so I thought today I should incorporate them into my TV watching.

I've been taking my kindle to PT so I listen to a book while she tortures me to help relieve the boredom. I have the cheaper black and white kindle, no bells or whistles. I check books out of the library. So far I have dropped it in the parking lot and part of the back popped off, I popped it back in, this week I sat on it, it still works....

An early morning or late evening stroll with a book might be an option.

The 5K MY Way

Friday, July 06, 2012

Okay...been yakking about this for weeks now. Signed up for the SP 5K Your Way Walking Challenge and have been in "training" since. I followed the recommended walks and times. So, today was the day!

Yes, I did it! It wasn't pretty and I won't win any prizes for speed, but I did it! It took me a long time and I even got up extra early (something I don't do very often) to beat the heat. 70 minutes after I started I staggered up the steps to the house and I'm now cooling off in air-conditioned comfort!

Who'd a thunk it? But, I did it and I'm glad I did it, but I'm still waiting to feel better (that's what I always read from the hard-core exercisers...that they feel better after they exercise)! LOL!! With almost 100% certainty, I can guarantee that I won't be doing a 10K!

My Excuses

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I've been on a plateau for several months. Actually, it wasn't a plateau so much as it was a go-nowhere situation. I'd gain and lose the same 3 pounds or so and wasn't making any real progress. Finally, I think I have my head screwed back on the right way, and I've given a lot of thought to what was going on.

I was making excuses. Maybe not verbally and maybe I didn't even acknowledge it to myself, but I did...I know I did. Here's the list of some of my excuses. I'm sure it isn't complete, as it is only when the little light bulb turns on at some point during the day that I get one of those little aha moments.

Here's my current list of excuses. They are in no particular order and they are for both exercise and food choices (or non-choices, as the case may be)!

Too hot
Too cold
Too humid
Too tired to cook
Too busy
Not enough money to buy XXX
Who cares?
I've done pretty well so far, why bother with more?
My legs (sometimes my feet) hurt
My schedule got messed up
Company came unexpectedly
Went to a buffet
Went to a party
It tastes so good
I've always been fat
Too windy
Didn't feel good
I'm upset with or about XXX
Can't stop with just one
Got too hungry
Muscle weighs more than fat (might be true if I had any muscle)
Measuring cups are dirty (I know...that one is really, really weak)

Wonder if any of you have excuses, too. Now that I have acknowledged some of my excuses, I think I will be able to move forward and quit making more excuses for myself. I'll probably add to the list as I become aware of them. I'm counting on my SparkFriends to not let me use these silly excuses! I need you to give me a boost in the behind now and then! I know I can count on you!

Now maybe I can tell myself, and hopefully make myself believe it, that if others can cut out the excuses, then so can I. Thanks for bringing them all out in the open and making me face them. WE CAN DO THIS!! WE CAN CUT OUT THE EXCUSES!! Thank you!!

    Oh boy. We definitely have a lot in common. By writing it all down, admitting it, you have made progress. I know you can do it. I know you will do it. I believe in you. My list includes:

Well if it was just me I'd . . .
If I could work out in the morning, I'd be more apt to . . .
If I was just retired, I could . . .
I'm old and getting older. (Somehow I'm the only one who should say that about me.)

The list goes on. The beat goes on. But so do I. I will do this. I'm 'walkin. Yes, indeed.'

    Jeannie, I am so happy to know it's just not me with some excuses. But since I've come out of the closet about being a food junkie and addicted to food and not an emotional eater, things are getting a little better for me. And I know they will for you also. You will have so many feet up your butt, you won't know what to do.
In all sincerity, if I was as "big" as you are, I would kiss the ground! I know you have worked hard to get where you are now and I want your willpower, strength and your weight (and your potatoes). You are allowed to make excuses, we all do, but we do fess up when the time is right and realize "hey, there's something wrong here", and today was your day to "come out". Good Luck, Sis, you know we are all here for you and love you. Thanks for sharing! ((hugs)) Noel

I saw on the Activity Fee you lost 1 pound so that it's a good indication that you're doing much better now. We're all seem to use these excuses from time to time and no one of us is perfect--well, maybe TUBLADY--LOL! I'm so glad you're moving forward again.

A Couple of Little Victories

Sunday, June 17, 2012

Two things happened yesterday that I feel pretty good about. The first is that I was "scheduled" to do walking for the 5K Your Way walking plan I'm working on. It was hot. It was humid. I was tired. I didn't want to do it. But...I did do it and I'm glad I did. I can't say I felt any better after I got home. It was still hot. It was still humid. I was even more tired, but the bottom line is that I did it.

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Secondly, we attended my hubby's high school reunion last night. It's a tiny school no longer in existence. They honored the last graduating class of 1961/62 (it's held every two years), but about 130 or so people still come. People live a long time around here! LOL!

The meal was decent and predictable. I knew exactly what to expect so could plan ahead except they changed one thing. Instead of pie and ice cream, they served only a scoop of ice cream with a little bit of syrup. My goodness, it was good!
emoticon I think this emoticon is a bowl of ice cream. Anyway, I love ice cream and can eat lots and lots of it. Alas, it was just a little scoop, but it left me wanting more.

We had to stop at the store to get some milk before heading home. Right there next to the milk cooler sat an open freezer with half gallons (or what passes for a half gallon these days) of yummy ice cream. All kinds of ice cream!! I looked through it and found one for me (peanut butter fudge sundae) and one for Richard (vanilla) and headed for the checkout counter. I think I neglected to mention that this was one of the big box stores--and I'm so happy it was! I passed right by the racks of XXL and XXXL and XXXXL shirts and blouses and thought to myself--sure am glad I wear a one-X now!! (Shedding pounds makes you think things like that!)

A few steps more...wait...it wasn't that long ago I wore those other sizes and I still have a couple in my closet! Now I'm really doing the self-talk and nearly made it to the checkout before I turned my cart around and headed for the ice cream section of the freezer. Now I have more flavors to choose from, but instead I gritted my teeth, opened the freezer door and shoved those two cartons of ice cream into the freezer as fast as I could. I quickly got out of there, took my gallon of milk and 4 bananas and left the store before anything else could call my name!!

Do I need a pat on the back? No...they are really little victories, but I'm hoping they'll be sticky enough that a few more will add on to them before long and often enough that it will lead to real success day after day!

Now...I have a 30 minute walk on the agenda that I really don't want to do...it's hot...it's humid...I'm tired...oh my, here we go again!
