Cool Day in Florida

Sunday, October 19, 2008


It is a beautiful cool day here today.Sun is shining and it is in the 60's.Nice
Biggest thing going on around here is the baseball game. The area was hoping the Rays would win last night but they lost.Tonight will determine who goes on.
Nothing planned for today.This is hubby's bowling day but will will probably just watch a movie this afternoon.He picked up Sex in the City . He watches the girlie movies too. In fact I watch Indiana Jones yesterday and he stopped after it was on for just a few minutes.So I watched it to the end.
Scale was still down today so that was great.But we know one bad day of eating can mess that up real quick. But I am looking for a big loss this week. Seem to have calories back down where they should be.
Well I am going to go kick back and look at pictures in newspaper.I am not one that reads everything in paper.If something catches my eye I will read it.Only thing I check each day is Pickles because it is almost like looking in a mirror for Bill and I.

  


Cloudy Saturday

Saturday, October 18, 2008

I did not sleep well again so I feel like I have a hangover.Pretty good considering I don't drink.
But we went to grocery store early and was back home by noon. Bill left to go get a movie at Blockbusters and to stop at store to replace items he got wrong when we shopped. He got thyme powder which I never use so he has to get the right one.
I have most of stuff put up except for meat which I have to re wrap in individual packs. Probably will measure some.A lot of meat on sale so got extra. I won't need any for months now.Plus Bill's boss sent me a bag of deer meat yesterday. I use the sausage for chili and other goes in crock pot.
Also made a care package for one of my kids.Times are hard everywhere so we still help out kids from time to time. I can always find money to help them buy groceries. I had quite a bit of stuff in cabinet that I had extra of also.A lot of pasta because I don't use it much. Bill was sad to see the box of mac and cheese go. But I can make him some without making a package full. Also had a bunch of 100 cal snack bags. I can have more in fruit for same amount of calories.
Lemons were on sale so I have fresh lemon to put in my soup when I eat it.Gives it more flavor without salt.
I put my ornaments on tree and took new picture for sparkpage. Have 8 ornaments for challenge. And scale was down this morning too so that is an incentive

A Good Day

Friday, October 17, 2008


Today was my weigh in and I was happy to see a 3# loss which brings my total to 33# loss.So I am starting the day off great.
Decided to make my soup for next week today as I had everything. And I wanted some for lunch. I will use fresh lemon juice to give it added flavor when I eat it.That way it isn't bland and I don't need extra salt. This time I put 2 different cans of beans and added some small pieces of lamb. I had a small piece of lamb and I trimmed all fat off and threw it in.When I got finished I had 16 cups of soup which will be 88 cal per cup. So I am set with the soup and don't have to fool with it this weekend.I will get lemons at grocery store and add lemon juice as I eat it.
Sun is shining and looks like another beautiful day.

New Day

Thursday, October 16, 2008


Had this visitor this morning.Focus isn't great as I was in hurry to get picture before he flew away. They are rare in back yard.They are usually out front.
Tired again today but know why.Did not sleep well last night.Woke up and couldn't get back to sleep. It happens sometimes.
I put a question on message boards yesterday about throwing away food to keep from eating it.There were close to 50 people responded on the different sites.Looks like a lot of us do throw it away. Better in the waste than on the waist.
Hubby is going to go practice bowling when he gets off work so we are having a do it yourself dinner.This way I get to eat stuff he doesn't care for.So it will be shrimp or clams me tonight. Not sure which or how I will fix it. Maybe I will use both someway.
My book "Woman in White" came that I ordered yesterday.I had read 8 chapters on the web so I had a head start. It is a thicker book than I was expecting .I usually read during the commercials at night so it may take awhile.Still reading Brisinger also.
Eliminated one of my teams and replaced it with the 100# team which is better suited to me.I am set now on teams. All are teams with like interests etc. If I see I can't do them all justice I may have to trim again.i don't work so I have time.When you add in the message boards it takes some time.
But support and knowing one is not alone in the struggle to lose weight is essential to success. As it truly is a struggle. Not just a daily struggle.A minute by minute struggle. emoticon

Tired Wednesday

Wednesday, October 15, 2008


For some reason I am very tired this morning. But I have been having some very good days so one day I will get thru. I may even go lay back down shortly.Some days my bad heart reminds me it is the boss.
The scale is down and hopefully it will still be down on Friday. Just have to watch the salt. Have a great day. emoticon

    A change in diet can make one tired too. Take time to rest and take care of that ticker of yours. I love your tree as well...it's soooo cheerful!!! emoticon
