4 NO's Friday

Friday, June 28, 2013

I have today off , not by request, so I am up at four, in my routine,, paying bills, loving my Cheerios. For soem odd reason, last night I dreamed i bought a little scooter, like the one in Roman Holiday,, and could not figure out all the buttons and workings. I was visiting with cousins in Dearborn, MI and holding up traffic, it was nighttime and raining, I was dragging that scooter all over Detroit!!
I was exhausted when I awoke!! I will take a nice nap later,, a cat luxury...

Did not break my four no's last night, even though DD had a dish of blueberry pomegranate ice cream in front of me. I love blueberries. I drank my homemade root beer slurpee and it was not even painful!

Today I am off to visit mom, check out dad's house and more cleaning. Prepared for a 4 no salad and some tuna salad.

    A dessert and a night time snack are 2 different things. I always enjoy just a protein before bed or evening and it may even include a teaspoon of peanut butter. Glad you're doing well. Keep up the good work.

4 NO's still going!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Yes, it certainly is NONONONO!!
I am so happy that it is summer and I can eat fresh fruits though.. Usually no fruit after four-ish though,, either egg white or cheese stick for protein before I go to bed at eight, BUT I have noticed that I am hungry all night and actually wake up hungry in the middle of the night.
IT is extremely humid her eagain99% humidity today,, in mid 80's but temp feels like 100's. DD did mow our lawn but said she darned near fainted form the humidity..
she felt hot outdoors, but did not realize HOW hot until she opened the patio door to go inside the house. She said it was like entering a freezer!! (74 degrees).
Michigan is either freezing or hot and humid in the past ten years. the climate changes are not exactly subtle.

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Arrrgghh!! That Sparker Boss61 is a little sneak!! HE tricked me into joining this challenge by saying it was "Deceptively simple:..
I think I"M the one who is simple!!
He forced me to go buy MORE strawberries to eat with my meals so I do not eat a dessert!!
HE forced me to drink water instead of eating a KLONDIKE BAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ARRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I might just shrivel up and lose weight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm,melting, I'm melting.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    losing weight is a good thing but watch the sugars in those strawberries especially at dinner time. Hoping your FBS is good.

Great job!

    Last time I saw my doctor he gave me a stern warning. He said that if I keep lifting heavy things, walking up and down stairs, and taking long walks, my belly'd start getting smaller. emoticon

4 NO's still going!

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

I am glad that this 4 no's challenge is not in the winter: baking, holidays with sweets..
I eat both fruits and veggies on my plate, so desserts are not a biggie temptation.
I go to bed so early, there is little time to be tempted to cheat.. tonight I might stay up until it is dark outside!!Oooh!

4NOS!

Monday, June 24, 2013

Still no'ing!! yesterday I had a turkey wrap with lettuce, ranch dressing, turkey, bacon. No cooking!!

that was later when I cleaned the strawberries and decided to make a couple batches of freezer jam. I forgot that this pectin has to be boiled for one minute, so I still had to turn the stove on!!
I ended up with eight one-cup jars, one two-cup jar and three fourths of a large jar.

It took me longer to clean the berries than it did to make the jam.. At four p.m. I can put them in the freezer..
Finding things to do indoors in this unhealthy weather is easy,, clean, preserve, stay cool!!
