Another sunny day

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Because of my friend Carolyn(CEB2007) I took my camera outside on my way to sit on pool deck yesterday.As I am limited in what I have to take pics of I have to work with what I have. This is an orchard plant that was given to me on my 60th bd .

It is a beautiful sunny day and I plan on getting outside again today.Since Bill made the new steps it is very easy for me to get on pool deck.Slowly but I can do it.
Yesterday was another good day.I didn't do as well with calories but did not do bad either so I was happy.
I found out that my new statue will be here on Friday.I am so looking forward to it.I have to name her still.Maybe I will post a picture and let you guys suggest names.I like unusual names. Maybe a New Zealand or Australian name would be kewl.
Ok I better go exercise or like most people the day will slip by and it won't get done.

Sunny Tuesday

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

The sun is back today.Yesterday was cloudy and even rained a little.We need rain so bad. The water restrictions get tighter each week.If you see a green lawn chances are that person is watering when they shouldn't.
I did fantastic yesterday on my program.First time in many weeks. My calorie count for the day was 1250 and I had a total of 75 minutes of exercise. I quit trying to not eat after 10 and concentrating on just eating less at night for now.
My exercise was a mixed bag.I did some sit and be fit,some Richard, and some zookinesis in morning and then another 15min of the new zookinesis I got yesterday after supper.
The challenge I am in requires I eat a serving of a purple veggie or fruit so hubby picked me up some purple grapes and some purple cabbage.The cabbage was his idea.So I had cabbage slaw at supper instead of normal salad.Added a little white cabbage to it.
I was very thrilled to find my last and final statue for my Feel Good Corner on internet yesterday.It is even cheaper than Delilah and no shipping charges. She is just a little larger than Delilah and should go well with her. It does make me feel good to look out my window as I sit here and see my little corner. emoticon
Sometime today I plan on going up on pool deck and just sit in the sunshine for a few minutes. It won't be long before I will be able to use the pool. It has to be warm before I can go in.

    Hooray! I am proud of you. One day down, on to another. Just think, you will feel so much better when that picnic rolls around. You are getting a lot of exercise, good for you. The pool should be nice for exercise and relaxation when it gets warm.

I can't wait to see the new statue in your Feel Good Corner.

Can't say I am too good with purple veggies, but purple grapes are good.

Keep up the great work!

    Purple veggies, huh. Are there alot of purple veggies? Eggplant?

I have to know...what is zookinesis?

I've never lived anywhere that had water restrictions. Is your grass so hard it hurts to walk on it?

Geez, I'm full of questions tonight!

    Good to hear you were able to stay on your program yesterday. Way To Go!

I got after my husband last week for eating the last of my shredded red cabbage. I always add that to my wraps to get that crunch factor. I use my mandoline to slice up half a head at a time. I get it as thin as I can. I'm the kitchen gadget queen. LOL

How warm is it now in your area? It is 60 here, rain and no sunshine. Last week we had 2 days in the 70's that was sooo nice.

Hope you have another good day.

Monday Another starting new day

Monday, March 23, 2009

Today starts another new day.Sounds familiar. But I am been yo yo ing all over the place.Yes some has been fluid but some has been me not controlling my portions. So I am starting new today.
The weekend was good. The visit with Heather, Heidi, Scott and of course the star Landon was very nice.Heidi and Scott live in Orlando so we don't get to see them much. Only bad thing was they remembered our annual picnic which I was hoping no one would.I know.I am a grouch but I hate picnics.Yes I know that is un American but I still do not enjoy picnics. But it got started several years ago and it is one of two times a year that the whole gang tries to get together. We have a tentative date for May 9th.
I got a new small statue for the Feel Good Corner and Bill put it out there yesterday For now I am calling it the love fairies. I am still on the look for one more on other side that will go with Delilah.A little boy would be cute.
Ok Time to go exercise. emoticon

    Your corner is looking good. I like those love fairies. Good luck finding another statue to add. You have a real peaceful looking area.

As far as starting a new day, today is better than tomorrow! Good luck, you can do it. You may not like picnics, but just think how much better you will feel at the picnic after a couple of good months after today's new start! I wish you luck!

    Every day is a new day. I'm constantly telling myself that, but it's the truth!

I like your new fairies in your feel good corner. I look out our windows and see brown / yellow grass. I'm so ready for Spring!!

I'm not a picnic person either. It's always so darn hot whenever we go to a picnic and I get grouchy. The heat and I don't mix well.

    I am with you Eleni, trying to start over again today too. I have not been as good as I should be and after fall, I am more focused on losing weight. Take care and your garden looks good. You should come do my yard, lol. Remember, each day is a new day, don't look back.

Have a great day.

The two little love fairies look cute. I hope we will see this area coming to life with leaves and grass soon.

Sounds like you had a nice weekend. I like picnic only if they are inside any more. LOL I hate the flies, mosquitoes, and the heat. If you can guarantee those three things will not be at a picnic, then I'll come.

I hope you are able to stay on "track" today. You can do it, just call on your inner strength.

God bless,

    The pics are wonderful Ms. El. Grandson is just adorable. I am anxiously awaiting my granddaughter. My dd says that she (baby Sophia) is just being stubborn and won't make an appearance! Doc says any time. I told dd Becky that they just tell you that because they don't have a clue and the baby is gonna come when she's good and ready! Give that dear little one lots of hugs!

    Your plants look great and anyone who works with plants can see that you did a lot of work, repotting them. They look beautiful. I'm sure they appreciate your effort and will reward you with many, many lovely flowers. I want to see all your photos. Hope you're having a great weekend. Jim and I worked in the yard today. He mowed and I pulled weeds. The yards look great. I have seeds sprouting. Just can't wait until they are ready to transplant.

    The plants look great in their new pots and they will thank you for it by growing beautifully. Potting up plants nbever looks like a lot of work, but it is. I know as every season I pot up 1000's of them.
