Well do nothing but eat and mess up the kitchen. My sister put this on her blog and it so was me today.
My mind says" don't eat that,my hands just bring it to my mouth."
Yep it was one of those days. Woke up hungry and stayed that way all day. It wouldn't have been as bad if I haven't gotten into the fruit cake.Tons of calories there.I usually cut it up in small pieces and freeze for a small treat. I didn't get it done and there it was calling my name and I answered.And I answered in a big way.Thank goodness tomorrow is a new day.
Got a call from my son and it looks like they will be inducing his wife in a week or less.So we will be seeing the newest grandson soon.
Also got a call from my sister.She is back home and they will decide later this week what they are going to do about her heart.
I wish you could see the rugs in the other room.Roxy has them all in a ball from running back and forth at full speed. We have found one thing that makes her bark like crazy.She hates the vacuum cleaner and will try to bite wheels and barks her head off.She normally never barks.Bill had to put her in other room so he could vacuum living room.
Well I hope you guys did better than I did today but I will be good tomorrow.
Watching DWTS. I still can't believe Palin is still on there. Oh Well. I am voting for Max and Brandy. I don't care for Max's ego but they deserve it.
Ok Enjoy the rest of your day
This will be short.
Today was grocery day.We tried out a new place for lunch.I have rated it as no return.Food wasn't bad but there are too many good lunch places around here.I didn't do great but didn't do real bad either.I had a cup of she crab soup and a greek salad. But I ate a big piece of bread dipped in olive oil and spices.
Then on to grocery store. Got lots of veggies etc.
But things went downhill when we got home.As soon as I got in door I had one of my "spells" This time I noted time and will get doc to check my ICD on Wed to see if it is my heart. My "spell" puts me to bed right now.I get too weak to even sit in a chair.Once I lay down and doze off for a few minutes I am better. I feel just fine now.This is first time in a long time since I had one.
I have been doing much better at my eating.Even been in my calorie range a few times. I will probably go over tonight as we had pizza from Domino's.The new 4 cheese one. But I will eat better tomorrow.
My older sister that lives on east coast is going into hospital tomorrow. It is sad that I am only sibling that talks to her. She is having some heart problem. Her children don't have anything to do with her either. That says a lot right there.
Ok I will say goodnight for now.Tomorrow I will post some pics of little Haven who stopped by to visit.
Hope you all had a good weekend.
Bill was so funny at grocery store.He finally saw all my grey hair or rather white hair..I was in cart and he was looking down at me. Before the perm it didn't show so much but with perm it is easy to see.
Yesterday was a busy day for me.When we got home around 6:30 I was tuckered out. I never even went near computer. I wanted to go to bed at 8 but I made it til 10.Thankfully I found a cute movie on the disney channel. I never go to bed at 10.That is super early for me. But I a lot after being sick most of the week. But I am bad at over doing when I get a not too bad day.
First I meet a friend for lunch.Dawn was my co -leader during one of my many years as a leader in TOPS.She left a few years before I did but we have stayed in touch,In fact she is one that has actually come to see me at home several times. I picked a quiet place versas a better food place.There is a local deli that is packed all the time but I picked another smaller place that is quieter.Food was ok but nothing special.But we were able to sit as long as we wanted and catch up. Then as I was leaving Bill called. He had Roxy at dog park and she didn't do well riding in his old 65 chevy.It made her a little sick so he wanted me to bring car to get her. So after a quick stop at house I headed to dog park. Roxy had a great time and ofcourse knowing Bill there always seems to be females around.Yep some young thing was there.LOL. But there was also a man that had a small lab and was telling Bill about a class he put his dog in which sounded good.
After we took Roxy home we headed to get my nails done. I always hate going but glad once it is done.Then to WalMart. I wanted to look for a dress again and some more battery operated peelers. Didn't find either.Bill found a flannel shirt.I told him something was wrong when I find nothing to get. THEN And Bill is to blame 100%. I was heading to the check out with one shirt and some advil when he decided to look at another place for peelers. he was in the silverware part. I joined him and decide to just pick up 4 cheapo dinner forks.No set just a few extra forks.I think they were like $2 for 4. You have to have figured out what happened next." Bill " starts looking at sets because he didn't like any of the cheapo's. So we ended up getting 2 sets of 4. Bill did it Bill did it.I am innocent this time. As we were in check out they had the 3 kinds of popcorn tins.The ones that at one time were only $1 and now are $5 and up. And I like them so I got one to have popcorn to snack on.More calories than ones I use but still a good snack. So a bill that should have been very low ended up being $80. So now you know Bill in the instigator sometimes.
Next was supper. Bill has been wanting to go to LoneStar steak house so I took him there. I don't mind paying for a good meal but this was a $20 at best meal that costs us $47 plus tip. We both got French onion soup that wasn't bad.Would have been better if it was hotter. Then in trying to be good I ordered grilled trout with some lobster and shrimp pieces and fresh veggie mix. Now nothing irritates me as much as a picture of a dish and actually dish nothing alike. The picture showed about 3 good size bites of lobster and about 4 regular size shrimp.You now whats coming.The plate came with 2 very small pieces of fish that looked ok but not the other stuff.Then he set this very tiny bowl down.Yep that was the lobster etc.The whole thing might have filled a tablespoon. One very small piece of lobster and 3 tiny tiny shrimp and it was barely warm. I do have to stay the bread was killer. A very warm wheat type bread. Overall I would rate my meal as a C-. or less.
Oh Before we ate we stopped at petco where the guy told Bill about dog classes. Bill went in and the young man that gives the classes was there.So Miss Roxy starts a 6 week basic training class on Tuesday.We mainly want her to learn to lay down when we tell her and not jump all over people that come in house. This guy had the most beautiful dog.Bill told me about it and he came out of store with him.Almost solid white eskimo dog looking.
Oh While I was getting nails done Bill went to petsmart that is in same plaza to get more food and a ball for Roxy.he also got a frisbee.He is hoping Roxy will catch a frisbee, The ball he got is tough and will last a little while but she has already chewed the side of frisbee up. Just like having a kid around.
Ok so you see while I was tuckered out.
Bill has gone this morning to a big car show that is once a year. He looks forward to it each year.
Ok I think I am caught up. I am going to just take it easy today. I have to make up all my meds anyway. maybe we will try to play the new word game I got weeks ago.
Here is a picture out my window and one of flowers Bill got me. We both like flowers.I asked him to bring some home and he said he was thinking about getting some already.Great minds think alike LOL
It is a beautiful sunny day here in Florida.
Oh I haven't weighed yet and I am sure of some kind of gain.But I am doing much better. Thursday I stayed in my range and not sure about yesterday.But don't think I went over much.
No Beat Ups-- Just get Ups No Beat Ups-- Just get Ups No Beat Ups-- Just get Ups
This is what I am telling myself over and over today. So far I have done well.So even if I mess up later I have done better today. I did 45 minutes of chair exercises in segments. I have a low cal breakfast and lunch.
I have been thinking about a very special spark friend today. I am always so amazed when people tell me they enjoy my blogs or that I inspire them.I live a very quiet boring life but people seem to like to hear about the silly stuff that does happen.As for inspiration.Sorry guys but you are looking at wrong person. There are so many more sparkers who are awesome. And one that I was thinking about a lot today was Ann or EMMABEL an amazing lady from Australia. She reposted a before and after picture for me not long ago and I have it right here on my desk. Sometimes I am inspired by it as I know she had and still does have to struggle so much.Other times it makes me feel very guilty because I am doing so badly at losing. But she just is so awesome .Please check out her page and some of her blogs. You will really be inspired www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=EM MABE1
It wouldn't be my blog without some pictures. Some of you may remember the story of my spark friend Pat who passed away that called me ladybug.Well it happened again.As I was in the exercise room I looked out the window to see if my sunflowers were blooming yet. One guess of what was on the single bloom.
A lady bug. here are just a couple pics.The rest are on Facebook and Flickr
And here is our Roxy girl
I am feeling so much better today.I even slept better too.Roxy and I will go take a nap shortly. But I do feel better than I have in several days.But I am tired.But I am always tired.
Hope you are having a good day.The weather is nice here but very warm.have my AC going.It is in the 80's. I love living in Florida.
Altho i felt yucky when I first got up as time goes i feel better.
Bill stopped by to fix fence so other dogs can't get thru. Roxy was ecstatic to see him and get some early play time. She is so spoiled.She is over by front door now.i think she is hoping he will show up. She is sitting where she can see me too and if I leave this room she is right there.
I am hoping Bill is going to survive all the playing.He had her out back last night playing chase with her and tripped over his own feet.Fell flat of his face and of course she thought he was still playing.So she is on his back trying to lick his face. I am sure glad she is gentle with me.Bill didn't get hurt but I had to laugh.
My throw together supper was good. I liked it better than Bill.We ate it before the potatoes were real soft but I was hungry. Of course I saved all the leftovers. Even the leftover veggies I had on my plate. One guess what I did with it.If you follow my blogs you know I made soup. I had some chicken noodle soup left so it went in pot first.Then I cut all the potatoes up into smaller piece and cut up all the onion.There was one small pork chop and I cut it up.Lots of the sauce was still there.It all went in with the noodle soup.Then I remembered my leftover veggies and in they went.Added some spices and let it simmer until potatoes were done.It is so good. It is much better than my low cal soup I make. But just remember to save all you leftovers.A bunch of small leftover makes a great soup.You can even add them to a can soup to make it better.
It is only 3 weeks until we go to Ft Myers for Bill's bowling thing. I am so glad I have a great doggie sitter. I am looking forward to seeing Bobbi and her new venture.
We are back to the 80's again.I need to get the air on as it is getting hot in here. No wonder.It is 79 in here.AC is going now.
Ok Tomorrow i have to get back to business.I have gained so much weight this week.i don't know how much is fluid and how much is real. But I should be able to exercise a little tomorrow and watch the old elbow bend. I hate having to lose the same pounds over and over and that is all I have done for the past year.Others are successful so I know it can be done. i am so glad for Start Overs.
Hope you are having a good day. It is time for Roxy and I to take our afternoon nap
