The sun was shining for a short time but now it is getting cloudy.Very windy.
Bill just called from Orlando.He is there for Landon's blessing and 1st birthday.I decided it was just too much for me to do in one day. He will be surrounded by grandmothers without me there. Anyway. Bill said the wind is terrible over there.
I am starting to widen the spread between myself and My Food Demon. I need to give him a good name. Any suggestions. I like offbeat names
And I had a 4.5# loss. I know some of it is fluid but have no way of knowing how much. I have been fluctuating between 279 and 285 for months now. I am looking forward to next week and being below that 279. I really want to hit 275 or less this month.
I had Bill take a picture of me with the Spark book at Books a Million and lets just say he is not the photographer in the family. It is way to blurry to use. But that is second place I have seen it on sale so far. I have finished reading mine.The last part wasn't real interesting to me but first 80% was.I think I may read it again.
I got all my exercising out of the way. I may make another pot of soup this afternoon. Or I may kick back and watch TV and read. I am looking forward to my new DVDs coming.
Ok Enjoy your weekend. Oh I see the sun peeking out again.
No sunshine today. We put off our regular grocery shopping til Sunday or maybe late Saturday. Bill did run in and get me some tomatoes and cucumbers and stuff to make Sunny's mushroom soup. I will probably stay with the one I use but I am going to make hers at least once. In fact I am making it for supper.
We did eat out for lunch and the place that was on our way was not what I would have wanted for lunch.It was a pizza place that has a lunch smorgasbord. I was so good for me but it wasn't easy. I had 2 pieces of pizza and a small salad. I passed on the pasta and the chicken wings and the cheese sticks. Passing on the chicken wings was the hardest. I am going to count it as 600 cal. I think that is close.
We went to Book a Million to look for a book for Landon's blessing. I found 4 really good ones. Two were little ones. They were perfect for a little one.
I also got myself a book that looked good . Saving CeeCee Honeycut by Beth Hoffman.
I also just looked at The Angel's Game by Carlos Zufon. I will get it on Amazon.New it was $26 and I already looked and I can get a good used one for $14 total on Amazon. I have bought several good used books on Amazon and they have been in great shape.
I had a gift certificate for Books a Million was only reason I bought the one book.
Here is a great magazine I picked up too. Compares foods to show healthiest ones.Like cereal showed Cherrios as best for fat and sugar. This is first issue.I have just glanced thru it but it is interesting
I am happy to say I did beat My Food Demon again. I know I have done good but don't see it on scale yet.
Well nothing much going on. I did wear my red shirt out today. Oh And I did get my exercises done before I left house.
Well I am ready for this rain to stop and hope the sun is shining tomorrow.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
The sun is in and out today.Still better than dark and dreary.
I beat him again and by a good margin. In the last 4 days I won 3 out of the 4 and it was not at my top range.
I got my exercises done and did more today as I wasn't as tired.
I decided to do a crock pot meal for supper .Since I have 2 crock pots I decided to do mine separate from Bills.That way I can better count the calories and put stuff in mine that I like and he doesn't. In doing so I did a little experiment on the beef.I was very surprised. I normally weigh measure and mark all my meat when I bring it home in single serving sizes. Except for things like a roast as I usually cook it whole in crock pot. Well since I was doing my own crock pot I weighed meat before I put it in and then checked it again after it had been cooking for awhile. There was over 200 cal diff. So I am not sure which number to use. I normally count calories before stuff is cooked but sometimes I do it after if it is a lot of stuff being cooked together. How do you guys do it when you use crock pot.
Nothing new going on. I did talk to Terri/CANBEDONE/Joyful Hawk on the phone today and that was nice. She is dealing with an ill mother and under a lot of stress but hanging in there.
Ok Ihope you are all having a good day. If not don't let it get you down. We are all going to have bad days but there will be good ones to follow.
Well today was another of many new days. I did so good beating My Food Demon until late at night. Then he forced buttered ritz crackers down my throat.Ok Ok I willingly shoved buttered crackers down my throat. But that is the great thing about a new day.It is new. A chance to do better than the old day.Can't undo what I did but I have a chance to not repeat it today.
I have been tired today but I still did my exercises. I only did a total of about 30 minutes. But I am happy with that.My goal is to do 10 minutes every day and I can do that. And talking about exercises
Someone asked me about zookinesis so I am putting a link to his web site.Another example of how things happen for a reason. When I went to site to get link I decided to look around.I found another DVD that I had not seen before. Another seated one but for weight loss.

Of course I ordered it.I am looking forward to getting it. I will let you know how I like it. I love the two I have already for seniors and use one or the other every day

Chair Exercises for Flexibility and Strength
It is a beautiful day today.The sun is shining and I love that. I had planned to go sit outside but didn't. Not too late.Maybe I will after I finish this.
And I think I am finished for the day.Very quiet day. I am not up to cooking so I am going to have Bill pick up some chili from Wendy's and I will add a salad here. The calories will be good but it does have a lot of salt. Who knows.I may change my mind again before he checks in before he heads home.
I did great again yesterday, And today is looking good also. Does feel good to beat his butt more consistently.
I got up way too early this morning.Woke up and body parts were hurting so I got up. Did get my exercising done. Last month I only missed one day and my goal is to not miss any day this month.
The guy came today and fixed our sprinkler system.We had water but it wasn't going to the zones. He replaces the valves under ground so we can now water when we need to.I have to find out what day is our watering day. Bill wants to put real grass in out front.Before sprinklers quit working we had green weeds. It should water some of my plants too. During the summer that will help.
I don't eat canned soup too often but I do keep plenty on hand just in case. I really like cream of mushroom soup but because of salt and calories I don't eat it to often.I could eat it straight out of the can almost.But I was wanting some so bad today. So I made up a version that was more filling as we had a every man for himself supper. I chopped up a small potato and some onion and cooked it in a can of chicken broth.Then I added some chopped up frozen brocolli and a small can of mushrooms.Simmered it for a few minutes and then added 1/2 cup of milk with a teaspoon of butter. Had a salad with it. It was good soup.My two favorite soups in one. Cream of mushroom and potato. Hopefully that will take care of my craving. I still have all kinds of calories left for later.
It was raining all morning but by late afternoon the sun was shining some.I think we are in for more rain tomorrow. Hopefully it will be nice for Landon's blessing and birthday on Saturday. Oh I do have a question.When baby's etc are christened or baptized are people suppose to give a gift. I am Baptist and we don't baptize young ones. We do not spend a lot of money on GK's birthday as we have 11. They all get the same which is just $10. But Bill's ex and sil side will all be trying to outdo each other for his first birthday.. I need to know if I need to get something extra for what they are calling a blessing ceremony.
Tonight is biggest loser.I don't have a favorite yet but I do have one I don't like.The one that Jillian can't stand. My favorite part of the show is the last 5 minutes when they show how the person looks that got voted off.
Well I need to get the dvd's set up for later. Hope you are all doing well.And thanks again for being there for me. I couldn't do this without you.
