Day 14 & 15

Saturday, October 20, 2012

Friday I did my weekly grocery shopping. This week we're having chicken enchiladas, "Mexican soup", oven baked chicken fried steak with Okra and Chef Meg's Macaroni and cheese and salads. The only exercise I got was walking around the store trying to push a heavy cart.

Saturday we went out again to the "hardware" store to get a power strip to make a charging station for my electronic devices so they are all in one place then we went on the hunt for a frozen turkey. We like to buy turkeys and cut them up. Here they do not sell separate turkey breast meat, ground turkey or turkey legs, it's the whole frozen kind and after 4 grocery stores, nothing. So we're going out again tomorrow and look in more stores. Again no treadmill time but walking up and down, in and out I got in over 5.000 steps.

Today was chicken enchiladas with "Mexican soup" and tomorrow is leftovers from today's meal!

    I love the idea of a planned menu, but with mine and Todd's schedule, eating together is a challenge more than not.

Good luck with finding a turkey.

Great job getting the steps in just doing normal activity. It all adds up.

Day 13

Thursday, October 18, 2012

It was a good day! Thursday is our weekend, like Saturday in the real world to we usually do errands. Today we stopped at Dunkin' Donuts for coffee, went to an old "everything" type store and picked up a couple things, made a couple other stops so I could get some cross stitch threads then came home. I got on the treadmill for 15 minutes and did some dumbbell exercises.

Our boy kitty rolled in something that stunk so he had to get a bath. He doesn't really like baths but he "tolerates" them, yowling the whole time but he really stunk. He curled up under his cocoon blanket and when he gets out, his fur will poof out and he will look like he is having a bad hair day.

Tomorrow is grocery shopping day so I need DH to decide what he wants to eat next week.

Day 11 & 12

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

I fell asleep last night before I could post my blog but I did manage to get in 15 minutes on the treadmill, which is better than 0!

Today I did 31 minutes on the treadmill.
Today is our Friday, the last day of the work week. It's also the start of my DH's 2 week vacation from work. It's the muslim holiday when BILLIONS and Billions of religious people from all over the world converge on Saudi Arabia to perform their muslim religious rites, the Hajj or Pilgrimage. About 1/3 of them come with no intention of leaving so they live illegally here. DH said we're going to try and clean up some of the clutter around and do a deep clean. That will set the cats off in a panic mode, LOL.

Tomorrow is the weigh in for my Biggest Loser challenge so I hope I have lost at least a pound.

    Let us hope tomorrow it is a loss for you. DH and i just watched a amovie and at the last few seconds the doorbell rang, I had to open the door and excuse myself to watch the final scene. Happily my friend did not mind and she will put in on her netflix list. We had afternoon tea but i have not been baking scones so i had to put out nuts and Craisins along with some huge medgool dates. I ate some too so that might just have to be dinner around here. I usually have scones in the freezer but let the freezer empty so I could de-frost it. HUGS Pat in Maine.

I am wondering what you will be eating next week!

    I hope you have lost at least a pound too. My scale says I did but I prefer to see it that way again next week since this has been along plateau.
I hope you are able to get lots of things done during the vacation time it must be difficult to do any travelling with so many pilgrims in the country, HUGS Pat in Maine.

HUGS, enjoy the days with hubby again. Pat emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day 10-wow

Monday, October 15, 2012

Today is good, I don't know what I did or ate but I feel good today, lots of energy. I've only done 10 minutes on the treadmill so far but I plan on doing more later. I used my barbell weights today too, up and down stairs several times compared to once a week, cleaned and straightened up, put up several of my Halloween cross stitch pieces around the house.

I fixed Chicken and dumplings from a Richard Simmons recipe, that is a favourite of ours with Strawberry and spinach salad. Chave enough chicken left over for dinner tomorrow.
