Monday Ramblings

Monday, December 13, 2010

Ok Are you ready as I will be all over the place.
For this old Florida gal it is cold out there.My thermometer only says 42 but the wind makes it feel much colder.Even Roxie is ready to come back in real quick when I let her out in back yard.
Bill stopped by earlier today and brought all my cactus and orchids in house. He will cover a few in front. We are suppose to get a hard freeze in the 20's all around us and we are suppose to get a freeze. My crotons took months to come back after last year.The ones that survived. So I know I will lose some plants as it is just too much to try and cover everything. So he will try to cover 8 plants in front and everyone else is on their own. I doubt my plumerias will make it. I have one that was full of leaves and about 2 weeks ago for no reason all the leaves fell off. I just heard on TV that some areas will be in the teens tonight.Living right on gulf always makes us a little warmer which really doesn't make sense to me. Oh well I will be staying in tomorrow where it is nice and warm.
I had to go out today to get my hair cut and the wind was brutal. I hate being cold.
I sometimes.No I often wonder why my mind leads me into directions I don't want to go. I started the day off good with my eating but then I let comments made by a stranger cause me to eat when I shouldn't. I still have supper and night time and I am at 1300 cal already. I know I can't stay in my range so I am going to try to not go over 2000. What caused me to screw up.Something that Whoopi Goldburg said on The View. And it wasn't just the words it was the contempt in her voice and the look on her face. I have seen that look directed at me when out and about the small amount I am out. She was complaining loudly about mothers with strollers and fat people in carts at Disney Land. And she even had a point about how rude some are.Only she made it like all were. She also said something about 800# people who should be walking riding carts and almost running over people. I am one of those people who can not go to anything that doesn't have a cart for me.I try to be very polite and I know many others also do. But it just threw me for a loop.I am a big fan of Whoopi's and it bothered me.I am sure or I think others may have been surprised by what she said. But it touched close to home. I even started thinking about when I was thin and I feel good knowing I never did that to anyone. And Whoopi is not alone. I have gotten that look before and I try to ignore it and think about the kind strangers that ask if they can help me. But other times I have to fight back the tears . And you would think it would make me more determined to watch what I eat but it often has the opposite effect and I eat more.How stupid is that. I warned you I would be rambling.
I am so jealous of those of you that can control your eating so well.I am also very proud of you too. I just don't understand how I can do so good and then blow it over some silly thing or even for no reason that I am aware of. Ok enough with my whatever.
When Bill came home to bring some of plants in he brought me the cutest card.It is a 8x9 inch card and it is 3d.

I have several Christmas cactus. They will be in full bloom by Christmas.Right now they are full of buds.
This is 2 views of the big momma plant.
This is the next biggest
A smaller one
This is my smallest and it had white blooms when I got it but the one that has bloomed is a very pale pink

Bill finally got a hearing test today and he will have his "ears" on Thursday. Now he can't say he didn't hear me. We had no idea where to go and Angel told us she had a friend that worked at Costco's and did the hearing tests.Her friend is hearing impaired.We felt she would be honest and not try to push the most expensive ones. They are not cheap by any means. But he has needed them for a long time.
Ok I need to go get a shower and get the hairs off my neck from hair cut. I am going to let Bill be in charge of supper tonight.
Oh I did get Roxy a toy at hair dressers.She has a gift shop in her salon. I got Roxy one there last month and she hasn't destroyed it yet.I will save this one for her Christmas present
Ok I am back.I just jumped in shower to get the little hairs off.
Here is just one spot of plants Bill brought in. Plants are scattered all over this room. Ok I am finished. Stay warm.

    Food provides comfort when you need it. There is even a recognized "comfort food" category. It's medicine when you are desperately tired, and it works when your feelings are hurt too. That's one reason to keep the "comfort food" items out of the house - they're too likely to take over.

I never was a great Opra fan.

    emotional eating is such an issue with so many of us. I tell myself that if I eat those cookies I won't fit into the little cute clothes I just bought. That helps me some. Instead of losing weight and then giving myself a treat (milkshake) I know now to buy a cute little skirt or something. That helps. Plus I get OUT OF THE KITCHEN. I have the things I need (meat, vegs, fruit, yogurt, milk) and not much more in the frig. I am trying to keep it EMPTY. Drink more water. Hungry? Then hot water. Maybe iwth sugarfree, fatfree jello in it if I am good. Just get out of the kitchen.

I sew quilts and no food allowed in the sewing room. Once I am there, or in fall,spring, summer in the garden (can't eat with dirt on your hands) I am safe from caloires. Travleing is difficult for eating and the holidays too. I would love to make Cmas cookies and candy, but I NEED TO GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN. Thanks for reading and your writings too. Encouragement needed and gotten from you too.

    It is upsetting to hear comments like the one Whoopi made when it hits so close to home. She doesn't know what it's like. Like we really want to be obese? I lose respect for people lie that. UGH! It's not easy for many to lose the weight and keep it off. I myself am an emotional eater. Losing my parents at a young age was hard. I was depressed and my drug of choice was food. I tell myself it could've been worse. I know I have to get back on track and get this weight off. I know I will struggle the rest of my life with weight but it's a challenge I'm willing to accept.

Girl, you better get yourself some long underwear!! It was negative 12 with wind chill when I woke up this morning. It was so cold last night when I left work my feet went numb until my car heated up.

I hope your plants don't die!!

    Too bad that you were upset by the tv. Hope that you and the plants can stay as warm as possible. We are in a blizzard and my hubby wants to go out Christmas shopping as it won't be very crowded as not many people want to drive in a blizzard. I have a beef/barley soup in the slow cooker for when we get home.

    I understand how remarks can upset you. And yes, you would think it would make you not eat instead of the opposite. Unlike you, when I was thin, I probably gave a few of the looks. I can't take them back and try to remember what I was feeling when I gave them and forgive those who do it now since I can't undo what I did! Talk about rambling LOL.

    I am not a Whoopie Fan and think she has done a great job of inserting her foot into her mouth a lot lately so hope you don't take anything she says too personally.

People are really good at judging others but if they had to walk a mile in their shoes, could they do it? Probably not...

We all have our own challenges so don't beat yourself up.

Love the card and the catus are amazing.

Hugs to you, my friend.

    Whoopie was probably just talking in general terms about rude people, but she was being rude also; she probably didn't think about how she was being just as bad as the people she talked about. Anyway, sorry it made you feel so bad; emotional eating is soooo hard to get a handle on...I fight it every day, but a lot of times it wins! :(

  Whoopie did say the 900 # lady on the scooter beeped at her and said to get out of her way, don't you think she was just lamenting in general about how rude people have become? I do agree with her about generalized lack of manners, maybe it was the people at Disney were just upset about the crowds and the cold weather. Am just so sure she did not mean it to be hurtful.
Are all your orchards inside, this weather is dreadful, already tired of this cold , will take the 90's any day.
This is the year we are going to get hold of emotional eating, one day at a time. Cannot believe I lost and gained all that weight this year, Back to basics and back to page one. Keep Warm!!!!!

    Emotional eating is something that happens. We need to learn other ways to control it. It doesnt help that you are in colder weathers now too. I also understand when you say you get upset when others can stay on their eating plan. Because I look at those that can stay on an exercise plan and feel the same way. (proud of them though) But we are all different and we will get to our goals as long as we keep trying to be and eat healthier each day. With any exercise we can do. Even when we have our bad days. emoticon

    Your Christmas cactus are BEAUTIFUL! I am sure they make your house very festive. It is cold here is the NW Florida panhandle where I live too. I like it cool, but NOT COLD! LOL
I saw Whoppi today on the View and could not understand why she would say such a thing. I couldn't believe she had no empathy for people who have to use the carts. Don't let her comments get you down. Most people, including me don't mind at all and I try to be helpful and at least stay out of the way of people with carts. If the cart helps you live a more fuller life then by all means go for it! Enjoy your life girl!

    I understand how that would make you feel the way you do. I would have thought that Whoopie of all people would have more compassion for people after all she has been on the heavier side for a long time.
As far as the motorized carts, only the people that need them should use them and you are one who needs the cart. So try not to let her comments ruin a wonderful day for you.
Maybe someone was rude to her and she was trying to compensate be being rude to others. So don't let it bother you.

I do love all your wonderful flowers, and just to think you did not want to join the Garden team, what a loss that would have been.
So sweet of Bill to bring that way to cute card home for you, My Hubby stopped by at lunch but only gave me a kiss, but I liked that because he very seldom comes home for lunch----his excuse he forgot to shave this morning and sure enough that is why he came home, the last time he came home for lunch was about two weeks ago he had a dentist appointment and low and behold he left his partial soaking in the denture bath, goes to show even those men of ours are one of a kind.
How do you like your hair cut? I got mine done last week, I know what you mean about the little hairs on your neck.

Short because it has been a quiet day. Haven't done much.
Bill did play another game of upwards last night.Of course I won but he has gotten much better.I have to work harder to beat him now.
I did go over calories yesterday but I was expecting it.But still was below what I was getting. I was a little worried when I decided to make chili as it does have a lot of calories. But I am in good shape and have plenty left for snacking.
I did bag up leftover chili for Angel and put it in freezer so I couldn't get into it. I made it a little different this time.I used ground turkey as usual but I had a small steak that I cut into small pieces and added that.Turned out good.So I have had my chili fix for awhile.
Tomorrow night we will have to bring some of my plants in as it may get too cold to leave them out.Bill will cover some up and the rest will just be on their own.
All of a sudden Roxy has started shedding hair big time. I have her an appointment with a mobile groomer to come and give her a bath,clip her nails etc next week.
I wish you could see her and Bill wrestling on the floor.Roxy is winning.Now he is laying there and Roxy is laying on his arm.What a pair I have.I took a few pics with phone but don't know how they came out.Tried to email picture to myself and it isn't working.I have done it before.
Oh well.Hope you had a great weekend.

Not much going on today. I got my nails done and we had lunch and then we got groceries.
I got most of groceries up but still have to cut up and bag a few veggies . I will do that tomorrow.
I made liver and onions tonight for me. First time I have made it in years. Since we ate out at lunch I am will go over tonight but not too badly. I have done well the last few days. 1,893 cal 1,662 cal 1,362 cal 1,776 cal. But will probably end up around 1900 tonight.I know it isn't as good as what most of you are doing but it is good for me.
It did not get as warm as it was suppose to.It is suppose to get real cold tomorrow night.I am bringing in all my christmas cactus tomorrow.I have 3 outside.2 small and one large one.They will be blooming soon.
We are watching the Tom cruise movie Knight and Day.Another stupid movie.I think Bill is going to play another game of Upwords later.That will be more exciting.
Well I need to get some sparking done.Couldn't get on the site earlier.Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

    I really ENJOY liver and onions! emoticon Especially the way that DH makes them...he does them the firefighter way. Cuts the liver up in very small pieces, dreges it in spices and flour. Browns up the liver pieces so they have a nice coating. Then absolutely smoothers it in onions and cooks low and slow...yum!

I got to meet Rhonda from Oregon tonight. She was on a cruise with her family that debarked in Miami so they drove the 4.5-5 hours round trip to come see us and visit the gallery. Then we all went to Mel's Diner for an early dinner before they drove back over to Miami. Such a wonderful time...that makes TWO sparkies I've met in person. SO love it when that happens!

Hugs to you...did you beat Bill on Upwords...that's a FUN game and really gets the old grey matter moving around upstairs...yay! emoticon

It has been an uneventful day. I did exercise and calories are good so far.I wish I hadn't had regular popcorn as that limits me for rest of the night. But I should still be good.
Bill brought home some fruit cake.So good but so many calories.I small tiny sliver was 121 cal.I already have some hid in freezer now.I will go weigh some slices and put the rest of this away.
We will be out and about tomorrow.Want to get my nails done and get groceries.
We did play a game of upwords tonight and I won. Now we are watching the movie the Expendables.Too much testosterone and bloody for me.

    The BW has been buying fruitcakes - last year we never had one until after New Years, and then when we wanted to buy one there were none to be had. This year we have eaten two from Sweetbay and one from Publix. She also didn't buy a big one from Costco. The problem with the little ones from Sweetbay is that a fourth of the cake is 400+ calories, so a slice less than a half inch thick and about an inch and a half square is 100. They're death on wheels.

A Good Thursday

Thursday, December 09, 2010

Altho I got up very late today.I have been getting up earlier but not today.
I did well with my eating again yesterday.I was even in my range.At the high side but I am very happy with that.I had to guesstimate a couple of thing so I tried to go on the high side. I am looking good for today too.But it is still a long time til bedtime.
I just put a pan of sliced potatoes and a pan of cauliflower along with 4 carrots for supper.I will cook some talapia on stove when Bill gets home.Fish cooks very fast and these are thin filets.
I even did 23 minutes of sitting exercise. So I am doing good.
And I haven't gotten into any of the goodies I made.Oops.I lied.I had one ritz cracker. Trust me that is good.Most of everything is in freezer but I do have a few out on table. I may have a pretzel later or coated popcorn.Depends where I am on calories later.
I finally had to fill my salt shaker up again.It didn't last a full month but close.It lasted 25 days which is good for me.I was filling that shaker up about twice a week. So I have stayed doing good on the salt goal.Now to get all the others back
Here are some flowers brought home last night. I like fresh flowers in house.

Weather man said it is in the high 50's but it is about 52 here.It is going to warn up to the 70's then cool off again. Great weather.I know many of you are freezing with snow and even below freezing weather. I love my home state of Florida.
Ok I better go check on supper. Hope you had a good day.Stay warm by friends

Dinner sounded good except for the fish. I can't eat fish. No matter how I've had it prepared, it always has a fishy taste.

It's going to be really cold here next week. I think it' supposed to be a HIGH of 15 degrees on Monday. BRRRR!! They thought we were going to get nailed with snow (up to a foot) but the storm went north. Thank goodness!!! I can handle 2" of snow vs. 12", that's for sure.

I hope you stay warm! Floridians aren't used to this cold weather. emoticon

    The flowers are pretty. You're doing great with your food choices. I wish you would cook for me! ha

I rarely have to fill my salt shaker. We don't shake salt on our food much I guess. That's funny. I never thought of that. Don't get me wrong I'm sure I get too much salt sometimes when/if I eat processed foods. I have really been working on limiting the salt, too!

Last night I cut up this huge sweet potato into chunks, rubbed olive oil on it and roasted it in the oven. I did sprinkle salt on the thick fry-like chunks. They were good. I probably need to eat more protein but I did have eggs for breakfast, a salt-free almond butter and raspberry jam on whole grain sandwich with a salad for lunch, and a fruit smoothie with added whey protein for snack. I did make sloppy joes for tonight so I'll be getting in my protein tonight.

  emoticon You are doing a great job!!! I am sitting here watching the snow pile up in our front yard. It is beautiful, but cold. It does put one in the Christmas Spirit though.
Love your flowers. Take care......
