I never did find out where Joyce's cabin is, she said close to me, but I never found out where.

I am not liking the wind and rain either Jo.

What I will be packing is my go out clothes, the ones I wear to go to Ladies day out LOL
or a funeral. The rest of the clothes you just don't know , like you said the weather changes every day.

We went down to the camp yesterday out of the wind, I sat by the river and did nothing, Jim put the solar panel back up and hooked it all to the batteries.

Happy rainy morning Everyone,

Had a late start today...watched a late movie Safe Haven...turning into a night owl like you Kathy... emoticon Now today I have a double workout to get in...instead of my Zumba yesterday I got sidelined entering my planned trip excursions into Betty..."my gps." So today I have a trial fitness run planned for this am. & then a step DVD this afternoon.

Did you all brave the wind yesterday? We worked outside for about 45 minutes then gave up. All the leaves we raked were blowing back...& I had walked into headwind on Saturday, so stayed in after that.

That sounds like a good idea with the clothes Mary. I should change seasons in my closet. I have been delaying because every day it seems to change.

Kathy, how did you make out with your office?

Hey Jo, what's shakin???

Have a good day everybody! emoticon

Jo - I like Denzel Washington a lot - what was the name of the movie?

I stayed up all night reading another of the new books in the pile waiting to be read - finished it, and am around 100 pages into the next one....

Now going out to watch at least one of three episodes of a series Meaganne has PVR'd for me - based on one of my favourite sets of books.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!!

It was busy at our house too, with errands then the afternoon filled with exercise...I've been diligent getting my H20 in...a real challenge for me now that I'm measuring it....We've been seeing the awesome weather from the master's tournament & yesterday's Hilton Head location so hope it continues until we get there...single digit days now...next week will be busy will last minute planning, packing etc.

Have a great day ladies...the mister is craving potato salad so I'm off to make it!!! emoticon

Jo - What are you watching?

We just re-watched "Ender's Game", which Mike was convinced he'd never seen before, at least until it was about 1/2 over then he remembered it emoticon emoticon emoticon

The fresh green and wax beans we had with tonight's dinner were amazing! I love fresh fruit and veggies!!!

Evening friends!

Another glorious sun filled day in the neighbourhood! Love, Love LOVE it!!! emoticon emoticon

Mike got a bunch of yard work done out back this afternoon - the day AFTER our yard waste pickup..... so now he'll crab about the crummy paper bags that don't hold up if it rains, until the pickup next month.... emoticon

Sandi - The roofing company is paid, but now I have to pay Jennifer back. She put the $14,780 on one of her lines of credit,where the interest rate is less than 3%. The roofers were going to charge 10% It will save us about $1000 - I'll just pay her back monthly over the next 12 - 13 months. We were joking around about how several of friends are always going to "Bank O' Jen " and then pay her back very sporadically and slowly. She offered to loan us the money, because she says of all the people she's ever loaned money to, I'm the only one who ever paid it back as promised

Mary - I wouldn't want to leave running water either, if I didn't have to.

I'm not looking to update the dining room so much, more it's the fact that we desperately need new chairs. We really only have 2 that are okay, with a 3rd that's sort of usable.

I told Mike that I would really like to get this new set of table and chairs - he just about passed out. He sees nothing wrong with using folding card table style chairs for company, or better yet , not ever having any company at all. That way he would almost never have to eat upstairs with us.

I haven't done anything more in the office the last few days, other than moving stuff from one spot to another on the desk. I'm aiming to clear the desk again tomorrow. I hate all the 'clutter' of papers and stuff on it.

Good luck with what ever you work out Kathy.

We do not have much to burn Sandi we been having fire since Feb 15th down at the camp just not finished moving back there yet. What I have left at the farm house would take about 3 hours if I got at it. I am being slow, hate leaving the running water until I have too LOL

Good morning everyone,

Wow, Kathy you sure have been Kathy's taxi. When we lived in Durham region I did alot more commuting from Oshawa, Pickering, Courtice to Scarborough etc. I understand your view of not enjoying it. I guess I'm now fortunate...not missing those night commutes to London in the least. Wow, that is 1 expensive roof!!! bet you are glad it's done & a big BURDEN lifted from your shoulders with it paid for!!!

It's funny, there are a lot of little things around our home that we could do...but with each one of them...I think, oh gosh, that could be a trip...could do 3-4 good trips with yours Kathy!!! We will have to cross that bridge sooner or later...our house is 14 years old...hopefully CPP will have kicked in by then...WE ARE COUNTING THE MONTHS...til June 2016!!!

The way I feel about car sharing the 1st thing may be a car lease!!! emoticon

Sounds like you want to update your dining room...whatever you do don't get white or light beige upholstery on the chairs...or you will regret it...we need to redo ours...but again my priorities!!! emoticon


I'll bet Mary has enjoyed some bonfires since moving back to the cabin after burning all your trash after the move...I know that's what my Dad does at the beginning of his season. He lives in Thedford near The Bend.

Sorry, your swimming is over, Jo. I know, I often think of mine...but honestly I have added some different exercises to take it's place & nothing beats a hot bath. Will say I'm looking forward to the heated pool on holidays.

Have a great day everyone!!! emoticon

Sandi - Yes I drive him to and from work, Monday through Friday and absolutely hate doing it. I used to love driving anytime, anywhere, but after getting Mike to and from work (at all hours of the night mostly) for years, not to mention driving Meaganne to the U. of Guelph twice weekly for the better part of 4 years.... well, let's just say it's not an activity I enjoy anymore.

Well, the chequing account feels pretty sad now. It said goodbye to $14,781.75 yesterday, but the roof is all paid for - total cost over $19,581.75.... The company came back yesterday to finish all the clean up that they couldn't do at the time because of all the snow, and they took some of the old rotting garden ties we had from some of the planters we took apart (fell apart is more accurate) which was great!

I have finally found some new dining room chairs that I like, now just need to figure out how to pay for them without using a credit card. If I can do it, I'll get the table that goes with them as well - by the time you pay for 8 chairs it's cheaper to buy the whole 9 piece set.

When Mom died, I got her 4 chairs, but one has already gone to the curb, one more should have gone with it, although the remaining 2 are still usable for the most part. Whenever we have anyone here, we have to resort to folding chairs.

The sideboard (buffet) really needs to be re-finished, but the china cabinet isn't too bad, and I have no problem keeping those pieces - the table is starting to look like an old sway-backed nag...... The set is over 105 years old, belonged to my Mom's parents - a wedding present I think. We'll have to see what I can work out - the set is on sale for another week, and the price is excellent, but.....

Happy Friday Everybody,

Feeling Frisky & ready to go on this FOGGY end to a LONNNNNG week!!

I enjoyed the VON film yesterday...It's wierd, they start out with out well known titles with not a great star line up...but the messages are always positive, upbeat & this year even funny...not bad for a Canadian film...This one was called The Grand Seduction...it was set in Newfoundland with one star...Gordon Pinsent...story of a small unemployed harbour town who needed to recruit a doctor to the town so they could secure a contract with a petroleum refinery to build in their town & secure jobs for all the locals. The lengths & lines they go to were the humour of the movie & again, I'm glad I attended. Scenery was worth the time too!

So, Mary how is the cabin moving going...are you physically staying at the farmhouse now or are most of your belongings at the cabin?

Jo, how is the swimming coming along?

Kathy, are you still driving the hubby out in the early ams. to his Highbury job? My hubby has been doing a 5 day week 8 hour stint for the last 9 months or so...he HATES it & can't wait for his 12 hour shifts back. He enjoys getting the extra time away workweek...after doing 3 shifts 1 week & 2 the other. He's counting the days down until our holidays since he's been pulling alot of overtime...He works probably close to your hubby's workplace. (off Dingman Drive)

Well, lots of tidying up to do...been a slug the last couple of says, resting up from the tummy & head woes!!!

Have a great day, Ladies! emoticon

It seems I just got over living in two places and now I am at it again.

Hard to believe how 6 months flew by.

Hi Ladies....late start today...another 1 am. migraine...don't get it...but feeling ok this am. just medication blah...but thrilled to say the earth has moved again...& my tummy feels so much better. I am on day 3 of measuring my fluid intake. I know now that I haven't been getting enough so 6 glasses of H20 as well as my other fluids which equal 8+ is what I will aim at. But just so many bathroom trips! Anyway, enough of that...

This afternoon is a movie premiere for VON volunteer appreciation month. We will be getting our service pins & a show so I've preplanned for my popcorn...you know they never make it healthy at the theatre.

I got alot of sitting activities accomplished yesterday so it's time to get this body moving some today. (if my mental fog allows... emoticon

ps. Hi Judy, I love DO days!!!

have a great day everybody!

good Morning everyone,

Hi Judy, glad to see you slowing down from your hectic work pace...now it's time to put that YOU time to good use....As I tell this to you I also remind myself of it. emoticon

I have to keep the focus of 1 day at a time...been feeling plugged up since Sunday. I had a great walk yesterday, again...although the feet have to adjust...got me hungry in the am. had a pear & almond butter...unusual since i haven't been having morning snacks. Anyway, the scale confirmed my plug. I'm up .4 of a pound...but the measurements told a more positive story.

I have my fitness class today dedicated to the 70's...so disco hustle it is!!!

Have a great day everyone! emoticon

Morning, Another nice emoticon day.

Well I have the day off..........we are in full slow season until this weather picks up. Hours have been cut so my day's off have changed. I now will be doing all weekends for a bit, but that is okay for now.

Sandi that is a nice way to celebrate your 40th. My DH had a hard time the first time so there is no way he would do it again.LOL

Baby steps here, i started this morning off with hot water and lemon. Detox time.

Let the emoticon shine in today and have a great day.

Good Morning Everyone,

Had a more ACTIVE day yesterday...Did my 1st outside spring walk since last fall...that was after my gardening...walked 4.97 miles...I forgot how good it felt but also my LEGS, butt & feet let me know!!! emoticon

Ate fine, & then spent the afternoon looking for a new formal dress for next year's special event.my 40th anniversary...we're thinking of a vow renewal in Vegas. (that was my relaxation time)

Hi Judy...nice to see you!

Kathy, good for you...tackling office clutter...it took us awhile to get a handle on ours...but once it's done it makes everything so much easier! Especially at tax time!

Mary, you are lucky the sweet tooth doesn't affect you. I satisfied mine yesterday with my 1/2 cup of stewed prunes. Sure hope that helps me in more ways than one!!! emoticon

Have a great day...think I'll be doing more walking !! emoticon

Hi Judy! Lovely to see you again! You must be working long hours I guess - at home and at your "paid" job too.

Like Mary, no problem with a sweet tooth here either. I do have to watch my salt intake though, instead.

Spent part of the day working on the whole declutter the office job that I 've been ignoring again.... I got a bunch more stuff shredded and sorted out to be filed, so that is at least a positive thing!

Good Morning Everyone,

Kathy, Wild is the story of a woman who has a journey of self discovery after her mother dies, & she leaves a background of drugs & promiscuity & a loveless marriage. She does this while she hikes the Pacific Northwest trail...I loved the book which is why I was eager to see the movie...Reese Witherspoon played her in the movie... Laura Dern played her mother.

I went off the rails yesterday. It started off well...worked outside...forgot what hard work gardening was. Just bending & cleaning my side gardens was a challenge...the grass is too wet to do much there...even fertilizing will have to wait. Then we took a drive to Waterwork Park here, but the wind was so strong we were walking into it...so it ended up to be 10 minutes. That's when I got sidetracked. On the way home we stopped at DQ. I ended up having a small peanut butter cookie dough blizzard... emoticon which set my sweet tooth for the rest of the day. The afternoon was spent arranging activities for 3 spots of our upcoming trip...via the internet...compiling coupons to use while there...arranging a meal reservation at Paula Dean's restaurant in Savannah...I must be nuts...she has true southern cooking...& she is known for DEEP FRIED everything...anyway, by dinner I had sat for about 3 hours & munched on a date square, & some of my hubby's cashews. emoticon Checking the scale this am. I was up .6 of a lb. from yesterday so I'm glad I have until Tuesday to really get my act into gear...Another morning of gardening is on tap for later....They say a high of 16 degrees today!!!

Have a good one, everyone! emoticon

Haven't heard of Wild - movie or book. What's it about, ladies?

Didn't do anything exciting here at all today. I did get some more shredding done, and moved some books from one new bookcase to the other. They're still a bit of a work in progress, while I decide exactly what I want on which unit.

Nice to see you again Kathy LOL

I liked Wild but I did not like the way they whispered so much and the music in the back ground was really not needed.

I think the book was probably better.

Good Morning everyone,

Sounds like you were in relaxation & movie mode yesterday!!! That's right Kathy, you did your part posting & us W.U.A.F.L.L. ers appreciate it! emoticon Glad you enjoyed the movie Home...doesn't a hair do appt. just CHANGE your perspective...or at least neck cold!! emoticon I love your description of your Red Lobster dinner...what a visual!

Mary, how did you like the movie Wild? i read the book before the movie was made & then saw it as soon as it came out...I enjoyed both since I'm such a DRAMA queen!!! emoticon

Jo, did you have a kiddie free day?

I'm going to begin my outside garden tidy up today if the weather co-operates. The backyard is stinking soggy but where my gardens are are lined with pea gravel so it shouldn't be too bad. I had a trellis fall over yesterday in our winds & the fence...(our neighbours) was swinging in the wind. The posts are rotting on the bottom & with the ground so soft there isn't much holding it up. We have it staked on our side but ironically since she has the dog, isn't doing ANYTHING to compensate on hers....Oh well, maybe with a little elbow grease we can keep it from falling down!!!

Liza...how are you doing today?

Have a good one ladies, the sun is due to shine on us!!! emoticon

I'm ba-aa-ck! Not that I was ever really gone, just having some of those dumb senior moments that everyone talks about....

I've been posting on Sandi's team all week and not noticing that I was not on this one..... It was pretty exciting thinking that we'd gained all those new members and they are all joining in the daily chats! Apparently I am not as observant as I've always thought myself to be. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome Lisa! Good for you braving the camera, and all the new things here! Looking forward to getting to know you better!

Not much went on this week. Meaganne and I went up to see "HOME" and really really enjoyed it. The music throughout the whole movie was great, as were the one-liners!

We stopped in at our hair dresser's on the way home and FINALLY both got our hair cut!!! I can see again now when it's breezy outside!!!

Yesterday our friend from Belmont dropped in for dinner and a movie, so we watched "Big Hero 6" which she hadn't seen before.

This afternoon I was off to the dentist to have 2 ancient silver fillings replaced. Then we went off to Red Lobster with Jennifer, Emily and a friend to partake of the end of Lobster Fest. Despite having the whole upper left side of my face frozen, I was still able to enjoy the meal, and didn't dribble too much.... although if I forgot and chewed something on that side some of it did kind of fall out a few times.......

Nothing like eating out with a 3 year old in full BRAT mode (not her usual sweet self at all) and a drooling Nana! Oh well, at least I was able to provide the comic relief at the table! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Let's try this one!

HOW TO HALT EMOTIONAL EATING
How to Halt Emotional Eating
★★★★★

By Claire Kowalchik
Have you ever felt so anxious over something that you found yourself crunching steadily through a party-size bag of chips? Has disappointment ever moved you to devour spoonful after spoonful of ice cream right out of the quart container? Do you sometimes feel that your only friend in the world is the box of brownies, cupcakes, or cookies on your kitchen counter? We eat to fill our belly but sometimes to release the angst of anxiety, soothe the pang of sadness, or feed the hunger of loneliness.

Who hasn’t gobbled chocolate in the midst of a stressful moment? But when emotion drives you to the candy drawer over and over again, day after day, you’re on the road to obesity and poor health. How, though, in moments of weakness, can you find the strength to turn away? For help in understanding emotional eating and what to do about it, we talked with Pamela Peeke, MD, chair of the Curves and Jenny Craig Science Advisory Board and author of The Hunger Fix: The Three-Stage Detox and Recovery Plan for Overeating and Food Addiction. Here’s what she told us.

Curves: Why do we eat when we’re stressed or sad? Why don’t we push out negative feelings with a hard, sweaty workout?
Peeke: We want to soothe ourselves, so we turn to comfort foods. Physical activity is a great way to de-stress mentally and physically, but many of us don’t think of it as soothing. You need to reframe it. Take a walk outdoors because it’s lovely. Go to Curves because it’s an opportunity to be with your friends. When you understand firsthand how activity soothes anxiety and energizes a sad or tired mind, you’ll start choosing it over chocolate.

Curves: Why don’t steamed broccoli or a bowl of fresh berries make the list of comfort foods?
Peeke: We’re geared to be attracted to certain tastes like sweetness. When we were primal, we had only berries and other fruits—the palatables. Now we have hyperpalatables—foods that are high in sugar, fat, salt. They have a pleasing texture. They’re soft and creamy, and when we eat them our brain releases the feel-good chemical dopamine.
There’s a psychological play here, too. Ice cream, cookies, cupcakes are the special treats or rewards our moms gave us when we were growing up, so there’s a boatload of memories associated with them. All of this elicits a positive response in the brain. We feel good. Stress is reduced. But it’s only temporary. When we reach the bottom of the cookie jar, we feel guilty, and stress goes way back up again.

Curves: How can we stop ourselves from overeating when we’re anxious or sad?
Peeke: Try to HALT temptation. Here’s what I mean: As you’re reaching for that bag of chips or quart of ice cream, stop and ask yourself, are you feeling Hurt, Anxious/Angry, Lonely, or Tired? These are the usual culprits that spur emotional eating. If you answer yes, then halt! Choose anything other than food: Do something mindless, go for a walk, go to Curves, go to a movie (but bring only enough cash for your movie ticket).

Curves: And if we find ourselves turning to comfort foods regularly?
Peeke: You’ve got to drill down to what’s really bothering you. Make a list of the stressors in your life. Usually that will give rise to the deeper problem. Then you need to figure out a strategy to deal with that problem. In the meantime, find and acknowledge healthy ways of handling stress. For example, notice how when you move your body, you feel good in your mind. It takes an integrated approach.

Curves: When is emotional eating a serious problem?
Peeke: Ask yourself these two questions when food is in front of you:
1. If I eat this will I feel a loss of control?
2. If I eat this will I feel shame, blame, and guilt?

If your answer to either or both of these questions is yes, you're hooked on the food or beverage in front of you and consuming it will only lead you to overeat or binge.

Instead, substitute with a healthier option if you're truly hungry and it's time for a meal or snack. However, if you're constantly feeling out of control, then you may wish to start a weight-management program that has experience with emotional eating, such as Curves Complete or Jenny Craig.

Good morning Everyone,

Wow!!! LadyLiza...what a stressful day you must have had...Hospitals relieve alot of stress at times but also create much for the WAITING...WAITING aspect. The air is SO dry & I will always remember the smells of them...I know the dehydrating factor too...The one trick I now do is take the H20 bottle with me EVERYWHERE I go...this helps me remember & nix the extra caffeine from whatever source....Kudos to you to do the photo step...you will want this for your journey...think how far along you have already come just by SHARING with virtual strangers...alas, we will be strangers no longer... emoticon I understand the emotional component that you talked about regarding what is eating you can be the source of your food choices. We are all here to support you as you will us with our journeys facing the trials along the way.

Mary & Jo & Kathy, the meeting was OK...the results will be felt more on the next site visit. I will say the guidelines weren't as bad as I thought. Didn't get a workout done in the pm. i was zonked & asleep at 8:30 pm.

Lots of practice today with a new 70's theme for my class practice as well as weight work...Anyone want to do The Hustle???? emoticon

Hi London Team..been a long day,@ hospital with my family since early this morning while one had yet another surgery and just a quick posting tonight..Rainbow, thanks for the grapes advice, I will try that!..I think I have found where to change my ticker to pounds finally!..in information, when you set up, I had to un check "use metric", I guess..I couldn't see it was in kilo's on my end. Please let me know if it shows correctly now, thanks. I didn't do well today with my struggling water issue, too many coffee @ hospital while I waited and paced, BUT, I did get one bottle in, which is still one bottle more than I do..lol..so I will persevere!..tomorrow is a new day :). I had a cousin yesterday take true, full body pics yesterday of me..and wow..its so..eye opening. :( Tomorrow I will add them to my spark page, and a few from my higher weight, 3 years ago...and I WANT to do this for 2 reasons... as usually my pics are face only, I know I'm not the first to do this!1) To truly submerge myself into this desire and accountability to change this for myself, and 2) So, I truly have something to reference BACK too!!..I searched a few so far, of the success stories, and Oh my GOODNESS, has a few really inspired me. I want..to be an inspiration too. So therefore, I need pics, and apparently, several, all along this path. So I will update..and I am going to try my first 'Blog' tomorrow too,I see on my spark page an area? as I am realizing I am desperate to find this inner peace, and really try to connect to all my reasons as to how I came to be here, and here physically, and emotionally, and hopefully through SparkPeople, how to come into clarity. I am going to share,what I am comfortable with for now, in my blog, because..it IS part of my process to be able to gain control of my life, for me, sometimes it's as simple as..it's not what you're eating, but more...what's eating..you".I mean it IS ME lol, that eats the chips..at night, or the chocolate bar.so yes, its 'what' I eat.or whatever it is, but its more WHY I am.....after all...If nothing Changes..NOTHING Changes, and now more sincere...I do WANT it to not be this way, I truly do. So, now my quick post has become longer(traditional for me), and becoming emotional, as I am pooched, so I will say goodnight, and for all who will see it in the morning, good morning :)

Nothing changes, if NOTHING CHANGES.

Good morning everyone,

Mary, that was good advice for Liza about the grapes...It's usually just before the meal that my hunger pangs hit...particularly when my hubby works days & dinner is 1 hour after our regular eating time...For me, I KNOW I should be grabbing that H20...so then why don't I?

Today, my low mobility class this am. then the dreaded VON meeting this afternoon...missed my expected extra workout yesterday afternoon. Instead I prepared my next music CD for my classes next week. Have been menu planning day to day...got to catch up with that for the rest of the week. Jelly beans & icy squares attacked me yesterday...the bowl is empty so today will be good!

Good job on posting your WI, Mary...haven't checked the thread there yet...hope we had more losses to counter balance my gain!!! emoticon

Have a great hump day everyone!!!

So Lisa you are saying I need to grow taller, not lose weight hahahaha just kidding, I am so short , I look like a walking beach ball after I get over 140 --

Water is one thing that will help you, also if you eat 4 or 5 grapes-- your hunger will stay at bay.
Trip I learned when I have waited too long to eat. You know that time when you have been busy and late getting dinner ready? The grapes help 'til dinner is ready.

Your ticker is set to say you want to lose 220 pounds.

Good morning everyone :) Thank you Rainbow(Mary) for your sweet comment..I got so many comments on that one pic, people thought I had lost weight!..but in truth, it is a good pic lol. I have a minimum of 75 pounds I want to lose, and if I can do well..more like 100. But I will baby step. Sometimes we have to look at each day, and not the long road, to get there. I am tall, and I carry my weight..'well', as in I am distributed..everywhere, and not just in a few spots..so, that also takes awhile for noticeable changes, as I tend to lose uniformly as well. I am PROUD, that yesterday I was able to drink 2 bottles of water(500ml), and for me, that was good, as I really have to push the water, always have had to. I think for me, if I can overcome that, it will hugely help. Also..late, late last night, I had to actually get up, and eat a yogurt, as I had hunger pains so bad I couldn't fall asleep!. I had a great day watching everything I ate, and had my supper @ 6 pm, and nothing more, until the small yogurt @ 2 a.m. Its been a long time since I felt actual hunger pains. I was trying to be stubborn, but my body was screaming! Today, I will try to match the water, and try for more. I am a coffee lover, and will try to limit that little by little, so I can add more water :) Have a great day all!

Nothing changes, if NOTHING CHANGES.
