Whew. It has been a busy day. And I still have a lot to do.
Had a nice lunch with my sweetie.We picked up some dvd's for the weekend.Then off to the grocery store. Got a lot of sales items.Bill got some from our local Publix that had a shooting this week.Very sad.
Now my refridge is bursting at the seams.I have 6 packs of meat I have to weigh rewrap and get in freezer.And I have to do it tonight because I need to get the leg of lamb out of freezer and I have no room. Got a lot of extra veggies too as some of it was too cheap to not get.
And on top of that I have to make my meds up which takes a long time. Oh well Bill just got out the card table for me. I will get him to help with meds.
Bad news is Bill's van has broke down again.We just put big bucks in it a couple of weeks ago and it looks like transmission is gone.Not cheap to fix.Oh well SH-T happens.
I do have some good news that is both good and bad. My son called to tell me we have another grandbaby on the way.This will be #12. It is due around Thanksgiving. A baby is always a blessing but this is last thing they need. I congratulated him but I am somewhat worried.
I got my exercises done this morning before Bill got home from bowling. And the scale is moving down. I still have problems with fluid but I have not had to take extra diuretics in over a week.
I have also done much better with night eating too.
I still haven't done my plants. Brianna is coming on tuesday to spend the night and she said she would help me get it done.I told Bill he owes her as now he doesn't have to do it.
Ok I have to go.I still have a lot to do. Have a great night.Talk to you tomorrow
It has been another not bad day.
I got almost all my exercises done.Had to shorten zookinesis as my back was bothering me.
I also sat out on the deck in the sun. It was so nice out there.It will soon be too hot out there.Bill is going to pick up an umbrella we can use on deck.
I was doing bad with my eating for most of the day. Not eating bad stuff just eating too much. Got it under control and still have plenty left for my night snack. Am slowly doing better with night eating. Had a low cal dinner to offset earlier eating.Turkey burger and baked veggies. Had a lot of veggies left over to add to my soup bags as I eat them.
I tried the leftover kale in a salad and it was not good. But I added some to my soup and it is good that way.So I just add a little each day when I have my soup lunch.
Our little veggie garden is looking good. Bill is enjoying his earth box and topsy turvy. He is in charge of those. My squash plants look good for now. I have one small tomato plant that is mine and it has several little tomatoes. This is our 3rd try and last if we can't get anything to produce.
Starting to see a few butterflies. I enjoy seeing them out my window.
Ok Nothing new. Several of my programs on tonight. Will tape some and watch some. Bill is staying up to watch Mentalist with me so I don't have to tape that.
Have a good night.
This was the sky last week over my back fence.I don't think I posted it.
And this guy was checking out things yesterday afternoon.
It has been a good day.Or rather it hasn't been a bad day.
I got all my exercises done and sat out in sunshine. It got hot out there after a few minutes.
I will soon turn on the solar panels and then I can use the pool.
Angel and Brianna have come to clean. I told Angel it is her time to cook. I fixed two crock pot meals.One for them and one for me. I used my little crock pot for me. Theirs has potatos and mine don't. I put broccoli,cauliflower,snow peas and some carrots in mine.I also added some extra mushrooms. I did use cream of mushroom soup and that runs up the calories.But No matter I know exactly how many calories are in mine. I have already added my calories and I am good for the day with plenty of extra for later.
I did do better with my eating last night.If I could have gone to sleep it would have been better. I ended up getting back up and ate some crackers.But no butter.Just the crackers. So I only went over a little.
The scale seems to be slowly moving down.We will see how it looks on Saturday.
I still haven't gotten my plants repotted.But I did have Bill move them into the sun. So this is what I see outside the window now.It will look different later. I did see a large light yellow butterfly yesterday and the bees are showing up.
Haven stopped by to visit before Angel takes her to her house
Ok supper is calling my name.Hope you had a good day
I always feel better when the sun is shining. I sat out on deck today and it was nice.The wind wasn't cold this time. I am starting to get a tan just from sitting out there a few minutes whenever I can. I tan real easy.That good old Greek skin.LOL
I got all my minimum exercises done and did 42 minutes of Zookinesis. I take a lot of potty breaks but I still get it all done.Just takes longer. I am very happy that I don't have to go anywhere this week.
I finally got my spice mix made. I did it different this time as I had several spices that I wasn't using and I added them in.One was a jar of italian seasoning and one was a pizza seasoning. Both had same stuff in them that I was mixing up so why let them just sit on shelf. I added a few others too. I used it tonight on supper and it was good.
I did my skillet dinner in over that I learned from Martha Stewart. Layer of onion,layer of sliced potatoes, and meat on top. Season with greek seasoning and my italian mix. Cover and bake.Easy as can be. I did throw a few carrots in there too. Can do same dish with any meat. I used chicken tonight.
I still struggle so much with night eating. I have tried all kind of different things but none has done the trick yet. I am trying to go to bed a little earlier which does help. If I beat this one bad habit the weight will pour off. Just haven't found what is going to work for me.
I will be helping out just a little with my 100 plus team. I will be the question of the day gal. I will enjoy doing that. I will make up a list for myself so I am ready each day.
I still haven't potted the new plants.Had Bill put them out by the others so they can get some sun for now.
Here are a couple of pictures of a tall orchid plant my sister Thelma gave me 4 years ago. You can see how the bulbs are getting taller and fuller. Nothing like waiting for the flowers to open up.
This was on the 10th of the month
This is today
Ok I hope you all had a good day. Need to set TV to tape tonight. Too many favorites coming on.
It has been a quiet but nice day.
I did my exercises and weights this morning. Didn't do my zookinesis so I must do that tomorrow.
I did sit outside and read for awhile.But even tho the sun was shining it was windy and the wind was cool. Didn't stay out there long.
Made the Zuppa Touscani soup for supper. I liked it better than Bill. If and when I make it again I will leave the milk out and leave it as a chicken broth base. With the sausage it just has too many calories
Rebekah and kids came by and brought us our late birthday present.It is a stone for the garden that the kids made with Mom helping. It has Kayla at the top,Chris on left and Felicia on right.They outlined a heart in the center. I will put it outside my window in butterfly garden where I can see it out my window
It has been an ok day. I did make an appointment for my mammogram.But The earliest I could get is May.
Mmmmm I guess thats about it. I have been ok with eating. I was up some on Sat but with fluid I never know. The fluid has been somewhat better. Doc told me I could take extra diuretics every other day if I needed to.So far I haven't since last week.
I am looking forward to a loss this sat. I am trying. I don't know how to give up.
Hope you all had a good day.Thanks for always being there for me.
