Haven't done much today. Need to get grocery list made and didn't even do that.Mostly was on computer and watching programs I had taped.
I did exercise in increments of 21,20.and 31 which was good.
Bill cooked supper tonight and he did cook.He grilled burgers.Something we rarely have is beef burgers. My only mistake was using buns he brought home.That thru the calories way up. But I still have plenty left for snack later.
Roxie got on my bed and brought my bumble bee pillow into living room for 2nd time.She ran when she saw me walk in there. She is a sneaky gal.
Ok nothing going on. Be back tomorrow. We are suppose to have a wonderful weekend

    I wonder why Roxy likes your pillow so much? Does she snuggle with it or chew it?

I have been craving a burger for about a week but our grill is buried under snow. I ended up getting one yesterday at lunch from Buffalo Wild Wings. It's the 1st time I've eaten lunch out in a while. Since Sam is out of town Jason wants to treat Alex out. I think we're getting Applebee's carside to go. That means I can get the steak I've been craving as well.

    She loves that pillow - doesn't she. I have a knit scarf that a friend made for me and my one cat will cabbage on to it if I leave it out. Even if it is in my coat pocket, she seems to find it and takes out with it.

Have a GREAT day. We have a wedding at 1pm and a reception this evening. I love weddings!!

    I am going to have to tell my Hubby to grill this weekend if the rain lets up some.
Roxie is just showing you that she likes your things. Sounds like you really like your new work outs.
I hope you and Bill of course Roxie have a wonderful weekend. Sandy

Much Better Day Today

Thursday, February 10, 2011

It has been an ok day.At times even better than ok. Enjoyed my visit and session with my favorite hypnotist and friend Debbie.
I didn't exercise much today but got my 10 minutes done. Eating has been ok.Bill cooked and that means it is harder to count calories.
I have been in a better mood too.Of course Debbie gets some credit for that.
I did watch an episode of Heavy last night.I guess it was ok but still too much crying.The trainers were all good but I don't think it is a program I will watch.
Bill just drug out a remote control truck he was given probably 10 years ago.He is good at banging it from one wall to the other emoticon Roxy does not like it.
Only two more weeks and he will only be working 3 days a week. Hope we both survive emoticon
Bright bits today
1. Spending time with Debbie
2. Getting amused by Roxie's snoring
3. Sun came out and it was warmer today.
4. Bill "cooked" supper.With help from Chilli's emoticon
Ok nothing much going on.Hope you all had a good day and that the food demon left you alone.

  Hi Eleni..........
It is getting warmer here too..........It was actually 14 degrees ABOVE ZERO today.........a veritable heat wave!!! Tomorrow we are supposed to be back in the 30s, so we are going to take our Grand-daughter to the Children's Museum which is about 40 miles away (why we saved it for a warmer day).
I'm glad to hear that it was better than an OK day and hope today will be too. Have a great weekend. emoticon

Afternoon Demon Attack

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

It is bad enough dealing with the food demon at night but he made an assault this afternoon.Then I was in foul mood for letting it happen. So stupid.
I did good with exercise again
Sit and Be Fit ( Stretching and Circulation)
Richard Simmons Chair exercises
Zookinesis (chair stretching and breathing.)
Jodi Stolove’s Chair Dancing Seated aerobics

Books I am reading
The Cat Who Lived High Lilian Braun ( Put this one hold as I was getting bored with it)
Sara Life of Sara Bernhardt Robert Gottlieb ( almost thru this one)
The Weird Sisters Eleanor Brown ( just started this
Heat Wave Richard Castle (Anxious to start the so I may start it tonight too
Just finished Readers Digest and Food Network magazines
Fixed another easy oven meal. Potatoes carrots chicken spices and bake. Can't beat throwing everything in one pan and let it rip.
Sun was shining today and it was warmer. I think we will be back in 70's by weekend.
Am going to met another Spark pal next week.She lives close by but we have never met before.I am looking forward to ti.
Brianna came by and did a few things in house like change our bed covers.
Ok Time to say good night.

    I am currently reading Echo Park by Michael Connolly(sp). Usually I read fantasy but this is a detective thriller mystery. It is pretty good in case you like those kinds of books.

    The food demon attacked tonight when Jason got home from work. I didn't have a snack today so I pigged out.

Enjoy your books. I haven't read since Addi was born but I don't miss it. I'll start again when she's older.

It's supposed to warm up here this weekend too. It's supposed to be in the mid 30's. That's going to feel warm.

Watching Biggest Loser but having trouble really watching it. It just isn't as good as it use to be.They keep doing different stuff. The new trainers are something else.Very loud.Taping the NCIS's etc.
We are having a little cool spell.Cold for us but not compared to you guys up north.
I managed to get 40 minutes of exercises done today.Didn't have as much time today as I start day late and I had to be at doc's to get blood checked. But anytime I get my 10 minutes I am happy.Extra is just a bonus.I do like the two new cd's I got
I fixed tacos with ground turkey tonight.Something else I haven't fixed in a long time. I used fat free greek yogurt instead of sour cream.
I ordered the book Richard Castle's Heat Wave.The one they talk about on the tv program Castle. I want to start it but I already have 2 books going now.LOL.I glanced at a couple pages and it looks interesting.
I have ordered Bill a book for his birthday and it should get here in time. I preordered it so it would get sent as soon as it came out.It is the next Flavia book. The first two were the first books he read.He doesn't know a new one is coming out. So he will be surprised.
Tomorrow one of our grand daughters Alyssa turns 16.Time does fly. I will be seeing my hypnotist friend on Thursday for another session on relaxing and handling stress.
ok my to you tomorrow.

    Love the new page.

There are some great relaxation exercises to use for stress so I hope you utilize them too. Just wondering - what is stressing you out so much? Are you doing too much? Hang in there and be good to yourself.

I love to read and am currently reading a new book by an Author from Kansas. It is called "Moon over Majestic" and was written by Clare Vanderpool. So far, I do like the way she writes.

Take care, my friend, and have a Wonderful Wednesday. Our Son, DIL and the grandkids will be here today as we have a big wedding this weekend.

Hugs, Sunny

  It was so cold here today that I had to carry the dogs out to relieve themselves. They wouldn't go out on their own and I don't blame them. We are supposed to get warmer weather by the weekend. I hope so. We will have our grand-daughter and she loves to play outside and maybe make a snowman.

Are you able to be hypnotized? I have always wanted to try it and never have. You will have to tell me all about it. Take care....... emoticon

    I'll take your cool any day! It's supposed to be -15 to -25 with windchill tomorrow. BRRRR It was pretty cold today but luckily for me the closest to outside I got was to let the dogs out. Addison has an ear infection and stayed home today.

I don't know how you can read 2 books at once. My poor brain would get confused. emoticon

Rained All Day

Monday, February 07, 2011

Very dark and rainy all day.
I am back on track. I exercised for 80 minutes to make up for the 10 yesterday. Used 4 different tapes.So far my calories are good. I made Bill a happy man today as I made meatloaf. It has been so long since I made it I had to stop and think how. I made up a big mix and then divided it and froze half for another day. Then put the rest with some cut potatoes in pan and covered with foil and into the oven it went. Turned out good. Got as close a calorie count as I could.
I put polish on two of Roxie's toes to see how long it would take Bill to see it. Took him a couple of hours and he starts bellowing about messing up his tomboy. emoticon He was only joking
I found a place locally that carried knee walkers.It was cheaper and no deposit.Angel went and they helped to adjust it. Not sure if it will work when she is at work but should help a lot at home. I just hope it doesn't cause her to fall and hurt something else.
Well I am going to go watch TV. Hope you had a good day

    What did you do to that poor doggie? My daughter once brought her Boston Terrier over here (male) with pink nails. That was a poor doggie. Sorry about your rain but be glad itisn't snow.
I would be interested to know how Angel does with that knee walker.

P.S. You are doing great on that exercise. Keep it up
