My weigh in Day

Friday, October 24, 2008


It was another good weigh in.I lost 2.2# which now gives me a total of 35.4#.Won't be long before hubby will have to buy me 2 books.
It finally started raining last night and still is off and on. We really need it.The yellow hibiscus hubby got me are almost dead.Hopefully this will revive them.
I made a new pot of soup this morning with no added salt.Will use lemon to get increased flavor so it isn't bland. This pot will be 65 cal per cup as I only used 1 can of beans.
Will concentrate on keeping my daily calorie count closer to 1500. emoticon
Hubby is real sick with sore throat etc.I may ban him to room with futon so I don't get sick.He can sleep anywhere.Lucky him.He is on his way home from work now.

    emoticon Way to go, Eleni!! Have picked out the two books you want? It's raining at last here in KY, too. Cold and rainy. We really need the rain, but I can do without the cold. Hope your hubby gets better quick.

Dreary Thursday

Thursday, October 23, 2008


It is a dreary cloudy day today.Hopefully we will get some rain.We always need rain in Florida.
The Rays lost last night but they have another chance tonight. I am not a big sports person but it is cool that a local team has made it this far.
As you can see I went in search of some new tweety clip art. Found a few cute ones.
I am very tired today and still have to get my food set for the day. It is still looking good for a loss tomorrow but I am having trouble keeping calories down.I know the problem but knowing and doing something about it are two different things. I can see the calories getting higher. I am staying under 2000 but it needs to be closer to 1500.Going over 1500 too many times.
I get so sick of this but we all do and it comes with the territory. emoticon

    It is hard to stay on track, Eleni, but so much better than giving in and having to start all over, as I learned after last week. emoticon You're doing great. Look what you've already lost in such a short time. Keep that in the forefront of your thoughts.

I find it much easier to stay on target if I eat pretty much the same thing for breakfast, lunch and snack every day. I don't have to decide what to eat or not eat. The first few months of my journey, I ate the same two or three menus for dinner, too. Those basic few menus have become my new comfort foods. It makes meal time a lot easier to manage.

Remember, we're all in this together. Together we can do it. emoticon

As soon as Bill turned on the sprinkler this Cardinal decided he wanted a bath. He was so funny .
I made the Spinach Chicken bake last night and I substituted canned chicken and it must have had a lot of salt in it.The dish was on salty side and it shows on the scales this morning. But I have 2 days to get rid of the weight. The dish was very good but will make some changes next time.Will use fresh chicken and less greek spice. I was surprised that Bill liked it.
It looks like I am going to have to get a bed in the other room.I did not want to do it but some nights Bill just snores so much.
I can't keep losing sleep because of that. I really hate it.But I may have to.I will not move out of my bedroom.Will just use it when he is bad.
He wants to take me to a local park that has a walking trail and use the wheelchair to push me and let me take pictures. I would rather take my walker and sit it in when I get tired.He can even push me in it.
Nothing exciting going on. Watching calories is getting harder every day.

This is my daughter Angelina better known as Angel.You will hear her name from time to time as I see her more than other kids.She tries to come once a week and do some housework for me that I can't do. She is a big help.Her daughter Brianna also comes and helps out. I was allowed to see her myspace site yesterday.Only the photo's she had on it.This was one that I really liked.The focus etc isn't great but it is a very nice picture of her.
Ok Back to the real world.I am so tired of not sleeping well. Either I can't get to sleep or I wake up and can't go back to sleep.It isn't as often as it use to be but still frustrating. Some of it is a snoring husband,I don't have an extra bedroom so the only place I can go to sleep is recliner.I need to get some good ear plugs.
I am doing good keeping calories down.Some of foods I am eating do interfere with the coumidin I take.I get my blood tested today and we will probably have to increase it.Better to increase it for awhile and lose weight. And since the weight is coming off very well I am sure doc wants weight off.
It is another beautiful day out there.
I am very happy with the bookworm team as it is introducing me to books I would never know about .I have bought one and have 2 more on my list for hubby to buy. Which I am hoping by next week he will have to head to book store.
But all the teams are good as they all relate to me in someway. emoticon
PS Just got back from getting blood tested and it is still showing low so we are increasing the coumidin and will recheck in 2 weeks. If it is too low I can get blood clots and I don't want that. Better to take a little more of the medicine.

I am very late in blogging this morning.As I haven't been sleeping well this was morning of catching up.
Finished up the last of my homemade soup today so I am trying to decide if I want to make more or just use new healthy request light cans I have. I have plenty of tuna and can chicken I can use.Scale was down again today which was a surprise. Am keeping calories in range better so far.
I made ground turkey cheeseburger the way my daughter told me and they were great. I cut up some mushrooms and onions and mixed it in the ground meat and then grilled it. Topped it with a slice of my fat free cheddar cheese when meat was done.Did not put it in bread.Just cut some tomatoes and onion slices that I ate with it.Just a cheeseburger without the bread.Added some baked fries and it was a good supper. I had to use canned mushrooms but bet it tastes even better with fresh mushrooms.
The weather is getting so nice here.I need to get out of house so I can take some pictures.I am limited in what comes in back yard.I am actually looking forward to seeing the snake again just so I have something to take a picture of. Now that is boring.
I will never catch up with the book club. I am still on Woman in White.Oh well.such is life. No big deal.
