Monday

Monday, November 17, 2008

I am glad the weekend is over. The weekend is usually not much different than any day but I am still glad it is Monday.
I made the white eggplant last night and I liked it. They have one more kind at the store I go to and I will try it next week.
I will be fixing the fennel today. So far some people like it and some hate it. I will let you know what I think tomorrow.
It was a chilly morning for Florida but Sun is shining and it is already warming up.
Lower back is still bothering me but I wouldn't know how to act if nothing didn't hurt.
Nothing new

    I saw a Florida avacado at the store and thought of you. :) I almost bought it to try something new but I didn't. Maybe I will next time!

Sunday afternoon

This will be short. Eating was not good last night and sleep was even worse.Just one of those days.Today my lower back is hurting.Just what I need.Something else hurting.
I skimmed all the fat off the chicken broth I made from thigh bones and skin I took off of chicken thighs I bought yesterday. I had left it in fridge all night so fat was easy to remove.Made a nice pot of chicken broth I can use.It took some time to debone and skin the chicken all at one time but if I had done it as I cooked them I would have thrown the bone and skin away.
Worked a little on an art project that I may or may not do.
Bill did find some fennell today.The one he got is very large. I will try to cook part of it tomorrow. I am going to try the white eggplant tonight

  


Late blogging today

Saturday, November 15, 2008

After we went to grocery store I was tired so I took a nap and never got my blog done or checked teams or friends.
I wanted to get a fennel and try it but they had none.Hubby is going to look tomorrow somewhere else. But I did get 2 new veggies to try. One is a white eggplant and one is a small squash thing I have never fixed.delicata squash from Ohio
Tonight is every man for himself and I made something for me that hubby won't eat. It is a creation I just came up with. I made a seafood gumbo type thing. i threw in cabbage ,onion, fresh okra cut in good size pieces,shrimp,small piece of fish cut up.some crab claw meat and can of tomatos I blended in food chopper.Added thyme,origano and chilli powder. Plus 1 cup of home made chicken broth.Let it simmer and I am going to eat it shortly.It made a huge pan and the calorie count is only 558 but I will boost it up to 600 incase I forgot anything.It smells great and I tasted broth which was good.
I also got chicken thighs on sale 2 for one and deboned and skined them all. Wrapped and weighted each one before putting in freezer.Threw the skins and bones in a pot of water with some celery and onions and cooked some broth while I messed with my seafood dish. The bones had some meat on them and broth looks good.Using skin makes it fatter but I will let it cool and skim off fat.
So that is my day.Again nothing exciting. Well my seafood stew soup gumbo or whatever is waiting.

  


Weigh in day

Friday, November 14, 2008

I am so lucky. I lost 1# and I am thrilled. That brings me to a total of 42.4#. I am just so happy.. emoticon
Hubby took the day off to go to a big car show that happens once a year. But he goes early so he will get home soon.
I just finished a big pot of soup so I would have it for the weekend. I usually don't put meat in it but I had 2 pork ribs I didn't cook so I trimmed all the fat off and cut it into small pieces. I was going to only use one can of beans since I used some meat but threw another can of beans in.After i added all calories each cup will only be 75 cal. So for 150 cal I can have a large bowl of hopefully filling soup.
I did much better with my night eating last night. (Thanks Debbie)
It is a very cloudy dreary day here.It is still warm tho. We are suppose to get a little cooler weather but it will be just right for me.
Nothing else going on.I live a very quiet life.Most of the time. With as many kids as I have I never know when crap will happen.It does not stop when they are grown.It is just bigger problems. And Mom is the one they turn to which is the way it should be.All part of being a mother

    Great job on the one pound weight loss!

The soup sounds wonderful!! I was never a big bean eater but since I started SparkPeople I've found that I like most of them!

I hope you have a quiet and relaxing weekend!

Thursday. An interesting day

Thursday, November 13, 2008


These are the sunflowers at the end of the house.We have to cut them way down every year as they grow so tall. Because of dry summer they are late blooming.
Today has been an interesting day. I had my ICD (defib/pacemaker) checked this morning by an extremely handsome young man. I mean hollywood good looking.SO I am not dead yet. But I asked him if I lose all this weight if there is anyway I could have a boob lift. I was sure the answer was no but he said yes. They will have to do something special as device is just above left breast but he said it certainly could be done. I don't know that I would ever do it but it is nice to know the option is there. My device is doing good and he uploaded a new security program to watch leads. So all went well there.
Next I went to my hypnotist friend and she put me under to help with night eating. Those of you that are familiar with hypnosis know it is deep relaxation and no magic.But it is a helpful tool for many things. I had a very interesting experience while relaxed.I saw small balls of color.First a yellow ball then a purple ball and they appeared several times. It was first time that has happened. Debbie said my body and mind were in tune and were doing what they should do. Needless to say I was very deeply relaxed. As some of you probably know a lot of amazing things have been accomplished by hypnosis.
Well I have had a busy day for me so it is nap time.Plus my groin is really hurting from getting in and out of car today

    I've never tried hypnosis but my sister had it done a few weeks ago for the first time to help her stop biting her nails and she's amazed. I hope it helped!

Did you enjoy your nap? I could've gone for one today too!
