Friday (where's my book of adjectives) to describe it?

Friday, August 03, 2012

Well, I made oatmeal for breakfast with applesauce.
Lunch - ziploc of veggies, 1/2 can salmon, apricots
Snack - cucumber, chicken

After breakfast, I watched 2 Coronation Streets while I did WATP's 4 mile super challenge... and since the show wasn't over and I was still "in the mood", I did some swiss ball stuff too.

Showered and laid around feeling depressed, taken advantage of, and generally miserable. To do with dd, finances, and g.kids... and lack of respect... I really need to stand up for myself and speak my mind.

Well, my friend called and invited me to go dancing and to come for supper, so I'm off, this should really cheer me up. Gotta work the weekend...

    Hey, the exercise is awesome!! The attitude about exercise is there -- right where you need to be to have great success. The food choices look very good. Thinking through things and deciding to be more assertive may prove very valuable. I can identify with some of the feelings of being taken advantage of and being underappreciated by family members. Hope you find just the right way to address it to achieve more respect. I'm sure you deserve it!! Take care. Be gentle with your feelings, but tough about meeting your body's needs. You are doing great!!

Wonderful Wednesday... & 193.6!!!!!

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

DD and g.d. are coming home today.... but it's 8pm now, sil went to get them and they were 2 hrs. delayed.... Poor Mya is going to be so tired...

I made chicken caesar salad for them when they get here. I had to have a bit of talking to with g.d. as she is abrupt, rude and disrespectful... But her moods can change minute to minute (she's not even hormonal, only 9!) We concluded with me trying to teach her some cooking type stuff and all was well. I started the 12 Day Detox today and w.i. this a.m. showed me down to 193.6 as a starting weight. WooHoo! So, even being off a plan, I lost an extra 0.6 lb.... This is a detox I've done for about 10 years, probably once or twice a year and usually over the 12 days, I lose as much as 8 lb.. My sis told me to be careful since the 17 Day Diet is a detox too (a lot cheaper) and I could be overdoing it. But, I don't think so, this plan has different allowable foods. I was thinking it was the first diet ever that I went on that didn't allow you chicken, and as I was telling this to sis, I checked the list again, and I had missed, you're allowed "poulltry", I had checked chicken and turkey, so that's good.....

I even danced to the oldies (Not the Richard Simmons version, cuz that's on VHS, just to a CD) for almost a 1.2 hr..... Only amounted to a little over 1000 steps though. I finally dragged out the pedometer today.... still just over 2200 steps.... gotta work on that, planning to do the WATP 3 miles later, didn't want to be all sweaty to hold my Mya....

Terribly Busy Tuesday

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

Well, was on the phone till 2am and didn't get up till 10am... Before Lunch I called my 90 y.o. friend, but she was gone to the city. Then I decided to call my friend who has been having me over for meals and invite her here since I had the house to myself.. I was going to make lamb chops, but she wasn't impressed with that idea, so I cooked brown rice and the Syrian cooking I made (with her leftover roast beef) and a bean salad....man, those things are high in calories....didn't realize that, but I used the canned bean mix and I added yellow and green beans and onion and beets.... She took a bowl home, and I have enough for me tomorrow too....

I did 4 loads of laundry... only one of which was mine... I cleaned out dd's fridge.. she comes home tomorrow....

So if your body really needs you to vary your calories to shake it up and get it losing, I did that today
I had 1702 caloires and yesterday I barely had 1150.... That smokie I made the choice to have for lunch was what did it...

Well, supper was fun and we visited.... Tired tonite

194 & I saw it twice, cuz I couldn't believe it!

Monday, July 30, 2012

Well, so much for the plan to invite 90 y,.o. lady for lunch, sil didn't have work today cuz his truck starter blew and the company had to get it fixed...so he was home... at least he put g.s's room together and I have my living room back again.

I did my food prep.... cooked 2 basa burgers and 2 turkey burgers and made my Syrian Cooking, (yum, had it for supper) and did up 5 veggie bags for the week... Gotta freeze some of my cabbage roll casserole. Then, I went out to pick up my paychk. and found a surprise note.... I had worked July 1 and got time and a half, so I got an extra 5 hrs. pay....not fighting that one!!!! We could all use good news like that... Then I shopped around to stay out of the house. I bought 2 books (touchy feely and sound) for Mya and 2 for m @ 49 cents each...... One is an old spa/diet book, but the recipes look really good....I also got a sports bra, gotta try it, but for $3 if it doesn't fit me, it will fit dd.... I should try it and if I am lucky, I can wear it to do my Walk & Kick. And I bought a Tommy Hunter cd... probably only Cdns; among us will appreciate that. He's a Cdn. country singer who had a show on TV back in the 60's or 70's, so that was a real trip down Memory Lane.... 21 songs.....

Then I walked around Safeway, and only bought 1 banana and ate it. I had been in Giant Tiger, when I suddenly realized I was feeling hunger pangs.... I bought some lime chicken breast and had 100 calories worth of that.. Then came home and made it just in time before the storm came. They'd been predicting Heavy Thunderstorms about 3:30 when I went to town, and it took till 7pm for them to get her.e... very high winds...

I also called income tax today, over 2 mths. and I still don't have my refund yet. She told me it was "processing" and she put a priority note on it, I could call back in 4 weeks to see!!! I told her I never had a job in my life where that was acceptable... but hopefully I lit a fire under them..

WEll, gotta go watch my tv show and exercise..... later.
