I was having cravings yesterday about food. It always surprises me when it happens. It is usually something bothering me. It is my son. I have not heard from him in nearly a month. He has occasionally answered a text -very sharply. I truly want him to live his own life, but I would like to know how he is doing. I sent him a text this morning. Just to touch base. He might not respond. It is his GF birthday sometimes this month - I wanted t... Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:03:19 EST Slept well and am energized http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5968513 Good Morning; I am doing Sparks while I am watching a recorded version of American Greatest Talent show. I feel great today. I worked out hard yesterday. <BR> Did many chores and slept well. I have gone through my DH clothes and have removed the "big" clothes b/c he has lost 65 lbs. He has been wearing the smaller clothes- he looks so much better. DH thanked me b/c he said he had a hard time letting go of them. What I saw yesterday in his face -a proud and happier man. I told him th... Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:23:24 EST Just came from gym http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5967866 Good Morning; I did not sleep well so I got up and went to the gym. I feel better because I went to the gym. Getting my exercise early in the morning, sets a good tone for my day. <em>386</em> My Dh has been having trouble focusing lately. <BR> I talked to him last night. He has been busy at work. I am encouraging him to go to the gym, but he has not done much exercising in the last week. I see a difference. <em>521</em> <em>306</em> Exercising makes my brain work better, my sleep... Tue, 28 Jul 2015 08:52:48 EST Dinner went well and DH calmed down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5967349 Good Morning; DD had called and said they would be late. GS had gone down for a nap he needed. GD was so happy to see her grandparents. She is very at home in our house. We played with kids. I got a good chat with DD. Even DH had a good talk with SIL. SIL seemed more mature than we have seen him. DD is in a good place in her life. <em>244</em> Meal went off very well. DH usually has a tendency to burn the food on the grill. But all the food came out well grilled to everyone's liki... Mon, 27 Jul 2015 10:48:16 EST Dh is going over board on this dinner http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5966900 Good afternoon; I am going to try again and see if I lose this too. <BR> DH is now making appetizers and a cheese tray with steaks as the main course. <BR> I have told him this is your daughter and SIL not the Queen of England. He says I never let him just do. He can not see that this is all unnecessary. Even my daughter says not to make a fuss. This is a casual dinner with my DD and SIL. My son is not coming; he says he has other plans. I am not sure what is going on there. <BR> Hop... Sun, 26 Jul 2015 13:40:11 EST Just got back from gym http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5966824 Lost blog entry again. Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:05:13 EST DH has been tense due to weigh in today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5966385 Good Morning; Dh goes to Weight Watchers and they weigh in weekly. He has not lost weight for 2 weeks and is so anxious. He went on a walk this morning Very early to see if he could lose weight on the scale. I have chosen to stop this merry-go-round of the cycle of weighing on the scale on a schedule. I do not go to WW due to the weekly weigh ins. I had actually got my DH into WW so he could lose his weight which he needed. Part of my program is to try to tap down anxiety when losing ... Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:59:48 EST contractors http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5965901 Good Morning; a couple weeks ago- we got new hot water heaters. Our city has a rebate program. With program, the city inspector has to come out. Well, both hot water heaters did not pass inspection. One is leaking carbon monoxide. We have carbon monoxide detectors. TG. I was so calm this morning, but I did not expect this. This is the strength of ones's program. I am great when everything is going smooth. But when life throws you a curve ball, does your program remain strong and sec... Fri, 24 Jul 2015 10:04:39 EST just dragging today - got phone call at midnight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5965324 Good Morning; I was sound asleep when my phone rang. It was DS's GF. DS was having a bad night and she said that he wanted to come home. He was not in a rage, but just upset. GF was calm. I told her to give him the phone. He would not come to the phone. So I thought, well I am going to try to go back to bed. He told me about 3 weeks ago that He is going to live my life with his GF. He rarely calls any more. I feel that is good. He is growing up and bonding with GF. They are supp... Thu, 23 Jul 2015 08:35:43 EST Been up early and getting chores done http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5964869 Good morning; I have much to do. I have company coming. I am still downsizing. <BR> I have gotten half of the attic done. My garage is full. I am getting rid of these cardboard boxes from one of 5 moves. My DH had just begun to sort and get rid of stuff. He is beginning to see the value of this exercise. It will make it easier on me when he sees something and says - you are getting rid of this? <em>234</em> Much of the stuff that is left is from the kids. When we go to babysit my ... Wed, 22 Jul 2015 11:22:25 EST Been to gym and have done many errands http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5964295 Good Morning; I was having stinky thoughts for the past two days. It was a mood I was in. The old me would have overeaten and then felt sorry for myself for over eating. But I started reading on web and books that I have, I know that moods are human that everyone has and they pass. I have to remember that perfection is not a goal of mine. I strive to live in the present - not to worry about the scale or what that person thinks of me. Sometimes I have to turn off the old tapes in my h... Tue, 21 Jul 2015 10:45:34 EST You are going along just fine and you get hit on the side of the head http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5963858 Good afternoon; Thank Goodness for the support of friends that I met on Sparks. <BR> I found out some concerning information that blind sided me. I had to really think about this. One has to forgive! Someone stole a precious item from another family member. It was done when the person was young and really acting out. I have to let go and Let G. People change and we have to forgive. I did not overeat over it. I have let go, but when I see this person sometime. How will I act? I w... Mon, 20 Jul 2015 16:08:40 EST just lost my blog entry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5963122 good Morning; I just got back from the gym. I had written quite an entry, but it did not get to Sparks when I tried to add it. I hate this when the webpage doesn't work. <BR> have a good day!! <BR> Sun, 19 Jul 2015 09:16:11 EST just lost my blog entry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5963121 good Morning; I just got back from the gym. I had written quite an entry, but it did not get to Sparks when I tried to add it. I hate this when the webpage doesn't work. <BR> have a good day!! <BR> Sun, 19 Jul 2015 09:16:10 EST I decided to weigh myself and I lost http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5962782 Good afternoon; I do not weigh daily or even weekly. I weigh when I can objectively look at the results and have no side effects like slipping. I have learned that the scale is not the tool I need for my program. I go by my clothes and a tape measure. <em>220</em> For today, I am focused and am tracking my food. I am taking today off from exercise. I do this weekly so to give my muscles some reprieve. I am in a good place and I feel good about myself. I live one day at a time. ha... Sat, 18 Jul 2015 13:51:38 EST I have been getting rid of my stressors http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5962223 Good Morning; I am slowly getting rid of my chronic stressors. The latest is my doctor with her family as her staff. She was a nice person, but her staff were not professional. I worried what they were doing with my medical records. <em>198</em> I lined up another doctor that was recommended to me by different sources. I slept very well. I am amazed when I have a good night sleep. DD has been in a great mood. She is coming for dinner on a weekend with kids. We are going to grill. ... Fri, 17 Jul 2015 11:13:26 EST got a surprise yesterday evening http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5961725 Good Morning; my DD called and she was close to the house. she said do you want to see your grand kids. We said sure!! they came over and we played for 2 hours. Then they left, my GD cried and did not want to leave. I gave her a book for her to read in the car so she stopped crying. I miss having a conversation with my DD when I am playing with the kids. It was so much fun. My GS is standing up by himself sometimes. He is getting ready to walk. DH is still in a great mood. Have a ... Thu, 16 Jul 2015 12:06:18 EST Having a wonderful day!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5961293 Good afternoon; <BR> Went to the movies and saw the newest minion movie. I now know where my granddaughter gets some of her lingo. It is a movie for 8 and above. there is much humor which our generation can understand. <em>334</em> Last night my DH brought home roses for me. I asked him what was the occasion- he says he just wanted to do it. I think I am going to look for another ball game for next month!! <BR> Only a joke!! I am getting much done and also reading the new harper L... Wed, 15 Jul 2015 16:03:55 EST what a change in DH http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5960585 Good Morning; I had to figure out what was bothering him. He does not talk about his emotions, but just makes it very obvious that something is going on. I usually have to play 1000 questions. But as I have gotten older, I observe, think about what events that has happened in the last week. Now I do not have to do the 1000 questions which he usually denies. <em>213</em> My DD had a birthday and it made DH feel old. But I decided to make a special HB for him in the future. We are go... Tue, 14 Jul 2015 09:41:59 EST DH was in such a mood this weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5959972 Good Morning; It was not always easy to enjoy this weekend. We have gotten much chores done. Dh was not in a great mood. When he gets like this he blames me for this or that. I think it has to do with age. He gets so insecure about this time of year. I have to do something to get him over this anxiety which he never acknowledges. He thinks it is me. <em>198</em> For today, I am positive and confident. I have to let go of DH's moods b/c he can take me down with them. Have a good... Mon, 13 Jul 2015 08:55:10 EST been to gym already - sleep good http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5959539 Good Morning; I am much happier when I have gotten a good sleep along with a good workout. DD asked us to go to a farmer's market this morning, but we declined to do exercise. I know if I do not make my program first it falls through the cracks. <em>224</em> So far, I am working hard for my program. Life is good. <em>521</em> <em>306</em> <em>381</em> Sun, 12 Jul 2015 12:00:54 EST wonderful morning not too hot yet http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5959052 Good Morning; I am out on my porch hearing the birds. I love time like this. <BR> Spent time with grand kids last night. They are growing up so fast. <em>247</em> <BR> DD sends me texts all the time over calling me up and talking to me. I know this generation like texting but I feel it is annoying when I am doing something else and I see the texts come in. Oh well. I know she likes me. I did send her a text why don't you give me a call. She stopped texting. Oh well. I have to f... Sat, 11 Jul 2015 12:10:20 EST Mosquitoes in house http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5958499 Good Morning; I am sitting doing my blog and a mosquito lands on my hand. I have a mosquito bite on my forehead. My dh loves to grill on our patio, but he leaves door open too long. <em>198</em> I have reminded him many times. He finally saw a mosquito land on him in the house. Does any one know of any way naturally we can do to get rid of them? After I get bit, I start getting the hebe-jebes where I start itching in more places than needed. <em>246</em> I am doing well today b/c... Fri, 10 Jul 2015 09:02:45 EST Had words with DS about daughter decision http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5957996 Good Morning; I feel strong today. I have a list of people stressors who I check off when I handle them. When I was going to the counselor trying to understand my <BR> DS 's PTSD, she told me that to get DS to own his recovery you will need to break ties. <BR> I sent an email yesterday discussing his decision with questions and comment. I knew the email was sensitive. It could either go well as an adult or go as I expected with my DS getting his back up and telling me off. The result w... Thu, 9 Jul 2015 09:27:37 EST I hate having angry discussion with DH in the morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5957416 Good Morning- our a/c went out last night. My DH has a friend who has been doing our A/C for us, but is unreliable for coming for a service call. I decided to get on Angie list and found someone who is coming out today. My DH has a hard time making a decision when a friend is involved. But this has happened before many times. I am just tired. I want someone who can come and do service on our time schedule and not after he has his other work done. <em>198</em> So he went off to work an... Wed, 8 Jul 2015 09:11:32 EST I am recovered from the trip http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5956872 Good Morning; It has taken me until today to recover from trip. I was so exhausted yesterday. But today I am back. I have learned to listen to my body and not demand so much from it when I am recovering from a trip. <em>224</em> I have learned to eat correctly and drink much water to replenish my body. for today, I am positive and confident. I feel strong and moving on with my program. For today I will get exercise in b/c my body feels so much better with exercise. Have a good day!! Tue, 7 Jul 2015 10:36:16 EST Just came back from trip to see 90 yr old MIL http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5956201 Good Morning; Every thing went well except the food. Normally I bring food with us, which I did. But we were slide swiped by a new member in family who likes to <BR> cook and wanted to show my Dd and SIL with kids a nice meal. Well the nice deal was a fattening meal which I do not eat like any more. I broke down b/c both my DH and I who were dieting did not want to a make a scene. Every one was eating and talking about this food. the food was not actually as good as everyone thought. ... Mon, 6 Jul 2015 07:05:25 EST Just got back from gym http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5954336 Good Morning; Yesterday went well. DH calmed down. The roofer fixed our roof. <BR> He also checked the roof for other problems and he said the roof was in very good condition after he fixed the leak. <em>244</em> I am expecting a package today, but looked this morning. UPS says they do not know where the package is. I contacted the shipper- they said the package is in the system, but wait 24 hours to see if the status changes. <em>198</em> UPS seems to have gotten flakey lately. ... Thu, 2 Jul 2015 08:45:44 EST Repairman day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5953820 Good Morning; repairmen are all coming today hopeful. DH is working at home, but it is not easy. DH is so anxious- he gets like this when he is juggling. I do most of the decision making on stuff, but today he wanted to be involved. The side effect is his anxiety which I do not see when he is working. <em>213</em> I sometimes think what he will be like when he actually retires. He has nervous energy. I know he is much better after exercise. <em>224</em> I am doing fine. I ha...

So I went to gym early. yesterday, I worked hard inside house and outside the house. Have repair man coming this week to fix things in our house. <em>224</em> I hope repairs go well. This week is hectic and not as calming as I would like. DH has been very unsettled with all the chaos. No one likes disruption in their schedule, but life can be messy at times. One needs to be flexible and know that this will pass. I w... Tue, 30 Jun 2015 08:11:49 EST Have roofer coming and electrician also http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5952722 Good Morning; My Dh was upset to find our roof leaking. He used to do roof work while making money for college. He says he can fix it. I said no- I do not want you on our roof. I hired someone from Angie's list. Hopefully all will be completed this week. Had a good weekend. I have much today to do. I have a huge list. Every one has a good positive day and get some movement in today. <em>243</em> <em>306</em> <em>381</em> Mon, 29 Jun 2015 11:21:59 EST sleep so well my vitals are fantastic http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5952169 Good Morning; I have always heard that a body needs good quality sleep. I can testify that even if you eat right, exercise, you still need good quality sleep. I did my vitals: BP 115/82 glucose 81 83 85 on a fast. I have been monitoring my vitals daily for years. I always want to have the facts in my pocket when I go see a doctor b/c I get stressed and raised BP when I go see an <em>104</em> doctor. <em>243</em> <BR> I am about to go to the gym. I invited niece to come for a...

DD invited us to go to the children's museum today and we declined. DH & I talked about it. DH wants to spend his GC he got for father's day. <BR> I feel so bloated today - it is b/c when the grandkids are here I did not take the time to eat regularly or not at all. I did not drink the amount of water I usually do. they just throw my schedule off. But my DH does not have this pro...

Yesterday last afternoon, I get a call from my DD, the moving van finally came. She asks if I can watch the kids for a couple hours. <BR> DH comes home and tell DD that if having the kids stay over night would be more helpful. DD jumped on the opportunity. In an instant, my relaxing situation became a business evening. GS is getting in more teeth. He is so much better at playing and going to bed. He is now 9 months. GD is her own wise self. Since D...

We have creatures which many yards do not have due to pesticides. When I see these creatures who both my DH and I grew up with, we are really pleased. We used to play with them as kids. <em>243</em> I just came back from the gym. I am getting stronger. That pleases me. Both my DH and I say we are in better shape then we were 20 years ago. The difference we have taken our health seriously. <...

She said that after the massage I would not be limping. she also found that I had much stress in my neck and shoulders. I am sore today but it is not so bad that I need to...

My Dd wants me to go the movies. Normally I jump on the band wagon, but I have to watch popcorn smells. It is a food that I crave badly in that environment.

Then I say to myself, "Do you feel comfortable in that environment with popcorn smells all around." I think at this ...

I fed them grilled fish. GS likes people food. GD has always eaten well. She loves salad. A typical breakfast for my GD is eggs, blueberries and tomatoes.
