This will be a short blog today.I wasn't feeling well last night so I am behind in my emails big time. I even went to bed at 10:30 which is early for me.
I cooked my first leg of lamb today and I will brag and say it was beyond awesome. Did I make a pig of myself.Of course.All my good intentions went straight out the window when I smelled and tasted the first bite. I failed to count all the calories.Maybe a million will cover it. Only joking. It wasn't that bad. We both had our fill so I will give what is left to Angel when she stops by later. I may cut myself off just a small piece of meat. This will be all the lamb we eat until next year. I also made some killer deviled eggs with deli style spicy mustard with horseradish in it. Leftovers of those go to Angels.Will have something low cal for supper.
Hope everyone is having a great day. I now have a couple of hours to be on computer trying to catch up. It is a beautiful sunny day here.
PS I did do some exercises this morning.Not as much as usual but did some.
I was so tired this evening I took a nap at 6.
I did not do well on my eating today. We went to a local deli restaurant and I indulged in a liverwurst sandwich. It was so big I had half at lunch and half at supper. It had way more calories than I thought.. So I will be over some but not too much. I had a good loss today. I am not sure how much was real weight loss and what was water loss..If I have another good loss next week I will know I am truly losing.I have been much better with my eating this week and my exercising.
After we had lunch we went to get my nails done.I met the nicest young woman. She is only about 38 and has MS. Altho we have different health conditions we found we have many of the same difficulties.I started telling her about spark and she is going to check it out.When we went to the car I got one of my spark cards out and Bill took it in to her. I do hope she checks it out.
We watched The Blind Side this afternoon.It was far better than I was expecting. It is a good movie.We are watching Sherlock Holmes right now.I think it is dumb but nothing on TV.Bill seems to like it.
Well I am still on the tired side so I will say goodnight.
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
