black friday

Friday, November 25, 2011

We went out to 1 store to fight the crowds briefly. We got the 2 things we needed at midnight, and it was over for us. I am not a big fan of this day anymore as I get older. In my younger days I didn't mind it.
I am so glad we got what we needed without much problem, and most of all, without the store running out before we got there!
It was fun going out real early like that though!

    I live down the street from our local mall. I was asleep all night and won't even go out today. Sounded like it was a successful jaunt for you. Good!

    I avoided the stores you are brave! I ordered a new tv from best buy during their pre-black friday sale. For me it is worth paying $50 dollars more to not have to deal with the stress and stupid people at the stores! Have a great rest of your weekend. God Bless! emoticon

    You're much braver than me - I stay away from the stores on Black Friday.

Have a great rest of the day.

    I would never do Black Friday. Not worth the hassle for me.

Back from vacation.

Thursday, November 24, 2011

We got back from Atlantic City today and all went well!
I hoped to do more walking on the boardwalk , but, it rained!
Not a problem, we did quite a bit of walking indoors.
We also saw a very nice Christmas show at Tropicana. It was so beautiful and such a nice show to get you in the Christmas spirit!
I am thankful for my family, and sparkfriends!!

Low fat Thanksgiving

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

I will be able to keep my Thanksgiving meal low fat. We will be gone on vacation but I am bringing canned fruits to eat right out of the can plus plastic silverware. This will be a breeze!
Everybody, have a very nice Thanksgiving!

    Your strategy is different than mine. I believe that "you have to eat fat to lose fat". Although I don't binge on fats, turkey (especially if i choose white meat) is already low-fat, so I can splurge a little on other foods.

Instead, my strategy is to limit simple carbs. I fill my plate with meat and vegetables (except starchy vegetables, such as potatoes and corn). And, I avoid dinner rolls, eat only a small portion of any sugary side dishes (if any) and desserts. Canned fruits, actually (if they don't have no added sugar), is one of those foods that I avoid. Fresh fruits are much higher in fiber and lower in sugar.

I also prepare for the holiday by eating fairly lightly for 2-3 days prior to it. Even that, however, does not give me permission to binge. I still make my food choices carefully.

Exercising

Sunday, November 20, 2011

Today I went to the movie with my teenage daughter (the movie was called 'Happy Feet Two') and while watching the movie I even exercised! I exercised my leg by lifting it up, and then setting it down normally for 50 times.
My legs are pretty big so it was a very constructive exercise. I felt the soreness after finishing each leg!
The cat is eating much better and had quite a bit of water today. he is healing wonderfully!! I am very happy!

    I should do that while any sitting as it will help. My legs are getting flabby from the weight loss so that may help. Thanks for the suggestion!!!

Glad kittie is doing good!
