My day started out with a wonderful email from spark. They told me I had been voted as a spark motivator.Wow. What an honor.I feel so special. It is a great feeling to know that I am being a help to my spark family. As you know I am fighting my Food Demon every day.Lately I have been winning but could not do it without the motivation you all give me.Thank you so much for this honor.
I also found out something else pretty special last night. I have been getting a lot of comments the past week from people who saw my 1st kitchen video. I was a little curious as why since I posted it back in July. I have a link to where all video's can be viewed and I noticed last night that you could view 2 ways.Recent and most popular.For funsies I clicked popular and there I was on front page and it said 379 people had looked at it.Another Wow.
So needless to say I feel very special today.
And I have more good news. My Food Demon stayed chained real good yesterday
We still have very warm temps but will cool off for a few days.We are in hi 80's and low 90's now.It will go into 50's and 60's for a few days starting tomorrow. But back up by weekend.
Today is a nice quiet day.Not much going on. I have a table behind me that is filling up with papers .I keep saying I will go thru it.Maybe that will be a good project for later. I did get Bill to clear off the table in other room.He wanted to put some Halloween decorations up. He is not crazy about Halloween but he likes a few decorations.
Will start with bad news. My Food Demon not only got loose from his chains he hid them for a while last night. I think maybe it was because I was so tired yesterday. But not to worry.He may have beat me yesterday but he is tied up extra tight with his chain today.
But I am still way in the lead.He will never catch me.
I have gotten into a bad habit of not going to bed til 1 or 2 and I need to change that.But I know "they" say you can't catch up on sleep but I tried.I slept off and on from 2 til noon today. Got up for some potty trips and to take some meds but I tried to catch up. Do feel a lot better today. Sleep is so important.
I have been getting a lot of comments on my 1st kitchen video blog from July. It was nice to know my corny video was helping someone.
Altho my Food DEmon whipped butt last night I am in a good mood and know I chained him tighter this time.
I spend so much time on this computer. I am always behind.I have been on here for 2 hours and I still have 25 emails to answer plus post on my teams. BUT I love it. All those emails with comments and encouragement is what is helping me to defeat my Demon.Plus my hard work. No denying it is work.
Ok I will say Have a great day my very precious friends.
I feel like poop today but hopefully I will feel better.Did not sleep well at all.Joint pain kept me awake most of night.Bill was quiet tho.
Ok Enough whining.It doesn't do any good anyway.
I whipped the Food Demon again
My brain is in a fog and I am trying to remember what I wanted to say.
I decided to take Bill out for supper and I was very proud of myself. We found a new place called J.C.Cravers Bar & Grill. I had so much trouble at first trying to find something that I could figure calories out. I have read the tip about ordering from children's menu but usually there is nothing good there or restaurant won't let you order. But this one had a grilled chicken and 3 shrimp so I asked if I could order. The girl said she didn't really know but that she would let me anyway. Then they didn't have any low cal dressings for salad so I asked if they had any salsa in kitchen.Cook was nice enough to say he would find me some.So she brought me about 2 tablespoons of home made salsa that I dumped in my salad. Then ***** You are going to love this. I had taken my little scale in and I weighed my meal.I did take about 6 of Bill's fries and I weighed them too. There was about 1/2 cup of rice which was messy on my scale.I need to get some of those little wipes you get at restaurants to keep with scale to clean tray off. Bill got one with his meal and I took it.Told him he could go wash his hands. He was such a good sport about me weighing my food in public.He is so funny.My entire meal was 530 calories which was great.
If I start to feel better we are going up to Publix and I am going to check out Audra's soy chips.Plus they have a lot of stuff Winn Dixie doesn't so I want to look around and see what I can find that is high volume and low calorie.
Ok my friends.My brain just doesn't want to work well.Maybe a nap will revive me.
We did check out that stupid plant at causeway and it still hasn't bloomed.It is leaning more but hasn't fell over yet.
i am not sure if I posted this or not.This is where I worked for 21 years.The tall stack with tall building near it.
If this doesn't play at first just come back later.If when you play this you get sound from other videos go up above where it says view in summary form.Then pick it out there and you should only have 1 sound.
I never have enough time and usually repeat myself but hope you get something out of it. I do mark the calories on the bags of soup before storing them either in fridge or freezer. I always hate how awful I look but I am what I am. Fat belly and fat arms. But they will get much smaller.
PS I bagged the soup and had 24 cups.Each cup is 43 calories.So with an extra cup of broth when I eat it each bowl of soup will be 101 calories for almost 3 cups of soup. I put 2 cups per bag
Well it is soup making day. I may make a video in kitchen later. Maybe
Today was my weigh in day and I lost .6#. Not a lot but I am very happy with it. I am still trying to get my fluid back under control.ALmost there.Next week should be a better loss. I would like to lose the weight yesterday but that is not happening.So I will be very grateful for slow and sure.
I did very good beating Food Demon last night.. I guess he was too tired from the grocery store to mess with me much last night.
I was able to sleep better again last night.Bill has done so much better at snoring since he raised the head of his side of bed a little.I already raised mine. But painful joints did wake me a few times.But was able to get back to sleep.
It is a beautiful sunny day. Bill has no plans this weekend so I need to get my butt out of house.Maybe we will go check the plant out that refuses to bloom at causeway.
