Not only did I stay in my calorie range I had better control of night eating.I was very happy with the way the day ended. I am looking good again today.I am looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow
I got all my exercises done this morning for a total of 50 minutes. One of my new goals is to try to make myself go to bed earlier so I can get up earlier and get my exercises done.
I have been reading the Spark and it is really good. At least the first part is.I saw it on the shelves at Wal Mart.
It was cold when we went to grocery store.Too cold for me.I will be staying home this weekend.We are suppose to get down to freezing and below.Very unusual for us to have this many cold days in a row.It is suppose to warm up towards the end of next week.I am glad I don't have to go to work and I can stay home where it is nice and warm. I don't envy you guys way up north.
Well I have a bunch of meat that needs to be wrapped up for freezer. Try to stay warm.
This is our year.
Supper is in the oven and I think I have time to do this.I had my ICD check today and also got blood work to check potassium.I was right next to grocery store and legs were doing so so.I decided to surprise Bill and make a meat loaf for supper.One of his favorites but one I cut back making because of calories.I ate too much.But he is so good about eating anything I fix I have to do something special for him some times. This time I figured calories per oz and then put mine in separate pan to cook. Now I just have to stay out of his as I still ended up with a big one for him. I also got some fresh yellow green beans that looked good and they are in steamer.
Don't congratulate me too quick.The only thing that saved me was the fact I got into the crackers at 1am and they went on todays calories.
It looks like I am not going to get to see Wicked afterall. They are having Landons birthday that day in Orlando and Bill has to be there.I am not going as it would be too hard to drive over there attend everything and then drive back.I am very disappointed but life sucks at times.Priorities. i am going to try to sell them but I am probably end up giving them away.A very expensive gift for someone.
I haven't got my exercises done yet but I can do the stretching ones after supper.
Here is a picture of little girl haven that Angel babysits on the days she cleans for me.Haven did nothing but cry when she first started coming anytime Angel left room.As you can see we have made friends.The bottle in her hand is a childproof that she plays with and I gave her an old remote.
We are suppose to get very cold temps this weekend.Down to freezing. I hope my plants make it.My desert roses are too large to bring in so he has them covered.
Ok I hear the oven calling me.Have a good day and stay warm.
Oh So far I like the Spark.I have just started and it is interesting how he started it.Being a millionaire helps tho
But it was way too close.I was at top range again.I need to be at lower range.
I have a busy day today.For me anyway.I got up late so running behind. I did get 35 minutes of my exercise tapes done.Brianna got all the Christmas stuff in boxes.I still need to check to see how she did it and mark containers. She also got most of regular stuff back where it belongs.She can't remember what was out in art room.I can check that out.
I have to make my weekly pot of soup.I ran out and had to use store bought for lunch.
Well I need to go get started on that pot of soup.It is still very cold for Florida. I am in one of the warmer spots but poor Bill was freezing yesterday.Yes we are big babies and spoiled rotten.But that is why we live here.
Have a great day.My empty soup pot is yelling at me.
Ok First some venting. I am so aggravated at myself for my screw up last night. After supper I had more calories left over than ever.So I was feeling pretty good. I more than enough for the soup I love at night and something extra like sliced tomatoes. I was sitting pretty.Then not long before bedtime i lost it and had a cup of stove top dressing and then a few chex mix.So I went from actually too low to having to add another 500 calories. It helped a little to see that one of my buddies had done the same thing. But I still wished I hadn't done it. So instead of being low in calories I was on end of my top count. And it wasn't because I hadn't eaten enough thru the day. I don't starve myself. So even with my dumb action I still beat my food demon by a small margin.
I have been making some changes here and there. I still eat a lot of soup but I have stopped adding extra chicken broth when I eat it. I now add water and some tomato paste and use fresh lemon to give it some tang. No added salt either.
I am doing my exercises every morning and then do zookinesis again in the evening.
Eating slower is also going good.In fact I am now eating lunch as I write this.Yes I know you are suppose to sit and eat.Ok I am sitting.But I am also stretching out how long I eat instead of wolfing it down.
So I am doing great so far.The fluid is still a problem but thats not going away.So I will have to deal with it.
Brianna is coming this afternoon and staying until tomorrow. I guess we will be testing the air mattress we got. Or she will have to make a bed on floor.
We are having another chilly day.Bill called and said it was cold in the wind.That is one thing about Florida temps that is different.It is a damp coldness that goes thru you like nothing.
My new back scratchers came yesterday and I am happy about that.I am so easy to please. My back seems to itch a lot at times so I love a back scratcher.The one I have had for years finely broke. These things are much longer than I expected but they sure work good.
Well thats all my excitement for now.
Here are my goals that I am working on each day. I just felt the need to write them out.I am going to keep a copy on this desk too.
1.Control my night eating
2 Stay in my calorie range by eating healthy most of the time.
3 Exercise every day even if it is only 5 minutes.But try to get at least 30 even if it is 10 minutes at a time
4 Track everything I eat.No guessing at calorie count
5 Drink more water ( or green tea/cranberry juice)and less caffeine free diet coke.
6..Write at least 3 things I am grateful for in my gratitude journal
7.Try to be a better Sparker to my friends
8 .Be kind to myself when I don't do any of the above.
Have a wonderful day my most precious friends.We can do this together.
Ok I know it doesn't compare to most of you but it is chilly here in Florida. It was suppose to maybe freeze last night but it didn't where I live.Bill brought all my plants in or covered others.Something he hates doing. So now have to decide when to take them back outside. Just stuck my head out the door and it is chilly.But I am nice and warm here in the house. I do not do cold weather well.
I beat again and it does feel good. Thats two down and about a million more to go.
Once again I did a dumb thing. I told you how the DVD started working so I don't need the extra player in there.Well!!!!!!!!!!!! I went back to do my other zookinesis tape after supper and the container was empty.So my bright brain tells me it must be in the DVD player we could not get to even open. I tried for 30 minutes and then unplug it and took it to Bill.I told him to take that sucker apart and get me my dvd.So he does. And guess what?? It is empty. I was flabergasted. So I go back in room to search all the drawers etc. Then as an after thought I decide to look at Bills little table. Guess what was under all his crap.My DVD. Oh well. I have my DVD and I am happy.
I got all my morning trio's done for a total of 55 mimutes. After supper I will do a stretching one. So exercising is going good.I know I am doing all easy stuff but thats all I can do and that is better than nothing.
I am also making every meal last a min. of 20 minutes.Easy you say.Maybe for you but not me.I make sure I chew 20 times and count to 20 between each bite. They (whoever that is ) say it works.
We finished our domino game which takes two evenings and Bill beat me by 19 point on last two games. I was ahead the whole time but then got caught with a lot of points.Too many to recover but it was fun.
Ok Thats enough for today.I have a few things to get done.Have a wonderful day my friends.2010 will be our year
