Ann Good For you. Your getting around better and having some time for vacation. I liked the way you made choices at the buffet. Today is a hard day for me. We have a lunch meeting at the Hibachi Japanese Restaurant at noon. This evening we are going to a wedding at a farm. The young lady that dog and house sits for us is getting married. The wedding is on the grooms parents farm. It is at 7 pm and we are to dress comfortably.
It worries me because the doctor's appointment is next Wednesday so I have to be careful today with food eveyrwhere. I am going to re read how you chose the items so I am careful tonight.

I have picked one of the Butternut squash and it was really not quite ripe but tasted great!! It looks like we will have some tomatoes but they are green now I picked 5 cucumbers last night. I can see 2 eggplants growing on the 2 plants I have. They are small now so there is a long time before they will be bigger.

This garden has turned out to be a surprise over and over.

Vicky, I know where you will be going soon. Only one week left here before teachers have to go back. Our nephew and his wife go back next week. (Louisiana). They have an early start because they get the usually weeks off at holiday time and then a whole week at Mardi Gras
Wishing you a good year.

Where do the days go???? Time had gone so fast. I am retired and way too busy.

Good morning Sue, Vicky, Liz and everyone else too. Well I have been off work again for the last week and this is the first time I have been on Sparkpeople.

Sue I loved your pictures of your garden. It looks very vital and strong with the vines pushing through. That is how I picture you, Sue. You can come up against stuff and succeed. Good for you Sue making a short term goal of being down in weight from last year when you see your doctor.

This year we have tried a small garden just out of planters. We have two tomato plants one is a beefsteak and they take a long time to come forth. They are usually worth the wait though. The other plant is like a grape size tomato and we have been feasting off of that one. Almost every day we can take anothe one off.

We also have seen a small green pepper forming on our third plant we have. The bunny seems to be eating these leaves and leaving the tomatoes alone.

Liz: About my visit to the Chinese buffet. I think I did pretty well. I had salad first and stayed away from the macaroni and potato salads and concentrated on the one that had tomato, onion, green pepper and a little feta cheese in an oil and vinegar dressing. I stayed away from the shiny chinese veggies because I don't do well with msg. I had salmon cooked without sauce, a skewer of chicken. Diet pop and water. No rice, no regular chinese meat and combo offerings. I went for the ice cream at the end and what a let down. It was very soft so I had a couple of spoons and set it aside. Also, Isn't it a blessing and an honour to pray for someone. We belong to the Healing Rooms at our church and we go about twice a month. It is so rewarding to go and spend some time in praise and worship and or studying through video. We often watch Andrew Wommack on video ....he is so good. Then often we pray for people and almost see the weight lifting off of their countenance. We have such a great God who allows us to be His outstreched arms

I have been about two weeks not using the cane. I went to my last physio on tues July 28 and have been discharged with a plan. He said, you don't need me anymore. I do the one exercise only two times a day (10 sets) and then I can start doing the exercise where you lean on a "slippery door" with it locked for safety. Your legs are out a fair amount from the door and you ease yourself down as far as you can without pain. Also, more walking. The physio Richard said by the end of the summer I should be back walking my normal amount.
He helped me so much. It still hurts if I turn it the wrong way and it feels like there is a pretzel in my knee but considering how much it hurt compared to now. Wow. It is amazing how fast your midriff begins to bulge and your legs seem to get heavier when you can't walk as much or as fast as you once did. I am NOT giving up but expect to be better by fall.

I have been reading that it is cooler where some of you are. Man oh man, it has been really really hot here with temps between 29 and 35 degrees celcius. There has been a breeze which helps.

I have been working on my wind chime for the Western Fair. Basket is painted, wire hanger cut into six 10 inch lengths, sprayed with copper paint. Every step takes a while and the only time I have is on my vacations. Next step is putting wire pieces in and then curling them at ends with a kneedle nose plier, adding the pieces of metal to the fishing wire, so that make the jingle jangle noise in the wind. I am using the parts of a child's tambourine as well as long copper tubing.

Vicky I have a recumbent bike as well as a Schwin bike in my basement that should help me out as well. Think I will try the recumbent bike first though.

Well I have Sat., Sun. and Monday off of work. Monday is our Civic Holiday so my week at work will only be 4 days.

P.S. I love the name Jerrah and congrats on your new niece. I love that the name means Jehoval has seen.

Prayers for you this week. We all need prayers for good food choices. Everythign seems to have food attached to it.

I have less than a week now before my Doctor check up. I sitll have a few pounds to go. I want to be down from last year.

WE can do this . We just have to keep our focus on what is good for our body. I think it might be a good prayer to add to the one before each meal.

Time has been sailing by here, too. Here it is, the end of July already. Haven't lost a thing, in fact I still have 5 pounds to go to get where I was when school let out. But it's okay, because I'm in a good place mentally. I leave for State Rally tomorrow, so that means eating out for the next 4 days, but at least I'll get plenty of exercise to cover it. God, please, let me crave only healthy food and help me stay away from the hospitality tent, where the cookies and snacks live...

The last few days, my eating has been good. My husband stepped on the scales and found he had gained weight again, so there has been NO ICE CREAM in the house. Sorry to say, but it serves him right, bringing that stuff around... emoticon

Have a lovely day, all and I'll be back next Monday...

Hope everyone is okay.

Hello everyone.....not doing so well on my food program, but not going to give up! I am going on vacation to my sister's next week and that should be fun. Whitney had a baby girl (Jerrah). She was named after my nephew Jeremy who passed away 4 years ago. Whitney says that red hair doesn't run in either her or Levi's family. Jeremy had red hair!! Also, I don't think they knew this, but Jerrah is a Hebrew name that means Jehovah has seen. Thanks for all your prayers.

Today I finished re fluffing the flowerbeds and the garden. I have about 12 butternut squashes on the vines. There will be a few more cucumbers but that vine seems to be getting brown. I have a couple green peppers coming too.

Buffets are the hardest to watch what you eat. We had a church social last night. I ate a hamburger no bun and watermelon. The rice dish I have no idea what all was in it but it as good. I tried to eat the raw veggies fro that tray and do it slowly so the other people could eat. I had more watermelon for dessert and a scoop of jello. There were Bratts, hotdogs, and hamburgers. I weigh in at the Doctors on August 5th My goal is to drop 4 pounds more by then. That is all I kept thinking about at that dinner.

We work so hard to drop a few pounds and it takes a day or two to pick up the pounds again.

Bless you my friends.
We can do this with our group support.

Ann, I'm glad you're ready to leave that old cane behind. I have found that riding the recumbent bike makes my knees feel pretty good. I'm doing it every other day for 4 miles.

Sue, your vines are trying to get away! My daughter used to have an old car on the back of her property that she was going to restore. The hood was up on it and it had no motor in it. One summer she noticed blossoms coming out from under the hood and, lo and behold, she had a very large pumpkin vine growing out of it! The kids had thrown their old pumpkin seeds there from the last halloween. It made a very pretty picture!

It's going to be a beautiful week here. Mid 70's and sunshine! Hope you all have a lovely week too!

Vicky

Ann, that all sounds great.. What fun with the Grand kids. Vicky, I am on my bike too. We moved into the living room so I can sit and watch TV while I sit working my way to nowhere.

Well, Home was all in good shape except the grass was so high Dave thought he would have to get the farmer down the road to come and mow. My garden vines just grew through the fence I am so grateful I got the flower beds cleaned up and in good shape before we left. Sue.



My two Lily plants.

Hi Vicky: Good for you on the recumbent bike and for planning on making it a habit. I have mostly put the cane away last week only using it for uneven ground, longer walks and stairs without railing.

This Monday, I left the cane at home. Boy I can't wait to do the "hospital walk' again. P.S. Most people move pretty fast in second or third gear so to speak and I do too normally.

I am still doing the knee exercises and faithfully going to physio. This time I will keep doing them even when my knee doesn't hurt any more.

It has been very hot and humid in Southwestern Ontario as well. My face breaks out in rosacea when it gets hot or I drink really hot beverages. It is a pain but not too bad.

The long awaited splashpad across the street in the park opened up this past weekend and we had the grandkids over splashing away. They loved it. We had them all day last Sunday and we tired them out. First church, then lunch, then Children's Museum then snack then splashpad, then supper, then we played a dvd Bible Game. Their mom said they slept into 9:30 a.m. the next morning and they are used to getting up at 6 am on school days. Thank God for school vacations, eh Vicky!

I also cleared out my bottom cupboards in the kitchen and on top of the counter, and I sorted the kitchen drawers as well as the one in the antique in the dining room. We gave away two boxes of videos to my hubby's cousin and said we don't want them back!

Sue: Good to hear you had time to read on your vacation. That is a great book, I have read it twice. My coworker is off this week so I am busy doing my work and some of hers. Next week, I am on another week's vacation and am going to continue with the second craft I have in mind. I only have time to do these things when I am on vacation. I do enjoy it.

Hi to everyone else and especially the new members of the team. We are rooting for you all to be successful in all you do - healthwise, wealthwise and most importantly with your relationship with our Jesus.

Got 4 miles in on my recumbent bike before I ever came downstairs this morning. Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a new habit for me.

Terribly hot & humid here today. Bob & the grandson are up at a bike rally in Erie. It should be a little cooler by the lake. I don't enjoy rallies when it's this warm.

Cleaned house this morning, dusted, ran the sweeper, loaded the dishwasher, and threw away some junk. Things I don't get to do when there are people in the house...

Hope you all are having a lovely day...

We are home safe and unpacked. I am already washing clothes. What a wonderful 2 weeks. I read the book The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. That taking time to jsut sit and meditate and pray for all my friends and their needs. I really saw just how blessed I am.

Now I will be back on line with more time.
I am a compulsive over eater and a stress eater.
Bless you all for this site and your support.

Liz: What an encouraging post. Let us do show our flesh who is the boss. I actually really wanted to have more than what I ate today at lunch. I had a perfectly good salad with protein in it, a peach tea, two baby cookies and I had ate a small orange earlier on in the morning. I purposely left my purse at my office when I went to the break room. I almost got up two times to get money. I did not do it though.

I know we are going out to eat at a Chinese restaurant buffet style tonight and I plan on choosing wisely.

Sue: talking about stress eating.....I find that if something is going on that I can't control, then especially about my loved ones......that is when I do my emotional eating. I do know and try to work on giving it over to Christ. I know he loves my family more than I can. I am not always able to do that and that is why I joined this Spark Group in the first place

When I think about it in the Psalms somewhere it says, Why art though downcast oh my soul, hope though in God for I shall praise Him yet.

I don't seem to have the problem with myself - I mean things happening to me. When my husband suffers it is hard. When my son suffers it is hard. No one has suffered more than Jesus though! I need to relax and give the Holy Spirit control. (Speaking to myself here!)

Then sometimes I give in. However, does the eating accomplish anything, nope, just to tighten my clothes.

Vicky, you may have said this before, but your Bible Study, is it based on a text/book leading you through the study? If so can you provide the name and or author. Or, is it a sharing time with Bible verses and prayer? Any way it definitely sounds like a good one.

Ann good to hear from you. We are on the last week of our vacation. It has been hard to do the computer as we have to go to the office to use the internet.

The quiet and the beautiful mountains have really helped me focus and I hope to go home on Friday and healthier person emotionally. Now the food is a different story. I have tried to say in line but we will see next Monday when I weigh in.

Blessings to all of you my friends. I appreciate you and pray for you each day.

Hi everyone: First, I hope everyone had a great July 4th and second, I have been on a weeks vacation and not even once did I go on the computer. I did read all the posts just now and I think it was Liz that asked what was the submission into the Western Fair crafts that was entitled" re-used? It is something that you make that is "green" so at least part of it has to have an item that can be re-purposed, or make something new out of it. So you take a picture of all the parts you are going to work with. My project believe it or not, is a pot pourri sachet. I found a green crafts book in the library and found my instructions there. You take used dryer sheets.....clean out of the dryer. You iron them and make them flat. Then you take these two dryer sheets and using white craft glue you glue the bottom and two sides. What a mess that was. Anyway after drying, you fill with pot pourri (new) and then the stuff you buy: card stock, pretty paper with a design on it, 1 yard of ribbon (new or used) Lots of gluing going on and its pretty easy but each step you have to allow for drying.
When you are done you have the card stock across the top, bended in half with ribbon in the fold. Then the po pourri below (I chose apple cinamon) and there you go. You can also put a lonely clip on earing in the middle.

The other one I am doing is a wind chime. Upside down basket without handle, paint it and then you take regular metal hangers and shape them into curly curls to hang basket from, and use clear nylon line to hang the items that make up the wind chiime. I am using tambourines that are kids, breaking them apart and hanging them.

woops, I have to get back to work.

Emotions also give me problems. I am also a stress eater and stress seems to find me a lot.
I wish there was Bible study near me for this.

How great that you husband can rebuild a car for you, Wonderful !

emoticon I'M WITH YOU, LIZ!!!

Last night we started our weight loss Bible study again, and it was so good. It was on emotions and how, when we let them rule us, they can lead to ruin in more ways than one. I always thought my overeating was caused by mostly boredom, and sometimes it is, but the binges are always caused by my emotions, when I let them take over...

Bob is finally taking his car for an enhanced inspection today. He bought a totally wrecked car and brought it back to life, but since the insurance company "totaled" it, it has to be proven safe for the road. After that comes registration and license plate, then the regular inspection, and finally it will be legal to drive. God blessed him with the ability to fix cars and he's done this several times. Maybe now my truck can finally retire...

Have a lovely day, all...

Vicky

Daily struggles!! I know we all have them, I did a challenge last month and dropped some weight and toned and then I just gave up on healthy eating..Today I started again with the July group hopefully it sticks this time. Our flesh isn't supposed to rule us. We rule our flesh. So let's show it who's the boss and stop listening to what it wants. I'm trekking forward and I'm never looking back, who's joining me :-) God Bless & of course everyone is in my prayers.

Vicky I know the feeling, I was doing well before we left for this trip Now we are in the mountains of North Carolina near Boone. There is no cell phone service or internet where our cabin is located. We have to go to the office to use the interne. I have crashed. and fixed us good but not diet food. I was hoping to drop a few pounds here too. We went to swim in the pool and the kids were so loud and splashing we didn't stay. They are supposes to have an adult with them but the adults wer ousid sitting in the sun. The screaming was what got me. I like kids to have fun and the splashing and racing didn't bother as much. It is not an outdoor pool so the sounds just bounced.

We are heading out to look around and so I came to the office early to get on and put in my food. (I have to do better today);

I am taking a time for meditation each day and pray for all of you. We do have a good connection and help.

Sorry, I've been MIA a lot lately. Too much going on. I've had reunions 3 weekends in a row and an anniversary party thrown in to boot! My weight is up and so is my fluid level. I've been eating all the wrong stuff. Last summer while I was off work I lost 20 pounds. This year I wanted to do the same, but I haven't even begun to lose...just gained...so today is a liquid day, including protein smoothie later for supper, just to get the sodium out of my system. My hands are even itchy, they're so swollen. I've been bad...

One good thing, My weight loss Bible study starts again tonight! I'm sure ready.

Anyone else struggling like me? Let's remember each other and our little group here in our prayers today...

Hi! I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and had a good 4th. I've joined a few groups on Facebook for losing weight with exercising and eating healthy foods and keeping everyone accountable for it by posting pictures and challenging each other in teams. I am getting somewhere but I have missed you all and I will try to keep in touch but there is so much going on with summer, losing weight, vacationing and throwing my son a birthday party on Saturday. I just can't seem to find the time for everything..but I'm trying my best :-) God Bless and take care

:-)LIZ

Tomorrow morning we go to the mountains of North Carolina. We have a house sitter that comes and stays and takes care of the dogs I am really tired today. It is time to rest.

Taking my prayer list with me. We have a laptop to take with us so I will still be posting.

Ann, just curious-what does a submission under re-used mean? Happy 4th of July all! And Ann, I hope you had a great Canada day--happy vacation!

The rest of the day and tomorrow is all I have to work and then one week off for vacation. Not going away but I will be working on my submissions to the Western Fair. I have helped the grands to submit before, but never my own "stuff". I will be working on a submission that is under the Re-Used - and also a submission for the garden.

Had another physio today and seeing small improvements along the way. Another appt. for Monday

It is Canada Day July 1st and I have the day off of work. We are going to our daughter in law's home for dinner and there will be sparklers for the kids and we may see some fireworks as well in the neighbourhood. Then back to work for Thursday and Friday. Next week I have off for vacation yippee.

Let's see that was 2 days (Monday and Tuesday) work, 1 day (Canada Day) off and then work 2 days (Thursday and Friday) then a week off. Wow, this is almost like part time work! tee hee tee hee!

My physio is coming along - hopefully soon I can kick the cane and start walking earnestly again.

God bless one and all.

Hello, everyone. I must confess that I turned Friday and Saturday into an emotional eating extravaganza, but got back on track on Sunday. I refuse to feel guilty or ashamed because I was mindful of what I was doing, knew I shouldn't but did it anyway, and frankly enjoyed it. Then I felt physically miserable. I haven't done this in months, and I'm back to one day, one bite at a time.

Have a wonderful week, everybody.

Bob painted his car today, and we caught 2 feral cats in a live catch trap! Been a successful day around here. Tomorrow the cats go to get spayed and we'll turn 'em loose again. No more strays...for a while anyway.

Been pretty bored since I'm not working. Hopi & I need to start walking again...

Hope you all are having a successful week...

Monday and it is cool. Yesterday the cold air dropped over us. We also had more rain.
Heading out today to play at a nursing home in Waynesburg PA. I am hoping that we have enough players and that the rain holds off.

Praying that everyone has a good week ahead.

Thank you Ann. Yes I found a partner too. I do have a daughter from the first marriage. That is a blessing.

Rain and more rain here. I am so glad to have the rest of the flower garden stones done. As I look out today it really is nice.

Happy Saturday to all.

Happy anniversary Sue! You two sound like you were meant to be together. We celebrate our anniversary in September and on the 19th day. We got married in 1992 so that makes for 23 years for us as well come September.

I got married for the first time when I was 18 and 6 days old! It lasted 5 years only. But I found a keeper this time and he loves the Lord!

Ann, I am so glad you didn't hit your head. I understand. Thank you God/ Now I pray for relief in the knee pain.

Yesterday the young man came to help with the stones in the flower bed on the left side of the porch. There are about 32 stones in all. He picked them up so easily. I cleared out the weeds and put new paper down and he just lifted them back in place. Then the rain came. I am so grateful to have those done. He helped my husband move some boards too. Then I fixed lunch

Today is our 23 wedding anniversary. Neither of us made it very far the first marriage. We have been through a lot of good and some hard times together and make a good team. Our faith is in God and we work together. This is a good day.
Sue

I want to tell you a story....I am still using the cane for my knee but after 4 physio appts. I was depending on it less. Mostly for longer walks across the hospital. last night, we were babysitting the grandkids and after we picked up the kids from daycare and approaching the house, we had to go up one big step to the portch. I had my cane, but I lost my balance and started to fall backward. Its amazing how you can think quickly and I knew angels were watching over me. Instead of hitting the back of my head on the concrete sidewalk, I was able to shift and land on my sore leg. I cried out in pain, but I realized that if I had fallen backward it would have been a different story altogether. My physio appt. this morning at 8 a.m. I had my mind adjusted from complaining to giving thanks for the angels watching over me. it was like they slowed time down and helped me to not crack open my noggin! Thanks to Jesus for the angels watching over me!

Today I am focusing my prayers on Whitney and her baby. Thank you Lord for the already 8 months in the womb successfully. I pray that you surround this precious one who is already loved by you and the family.

I think about a Bible verse from the Old Testament (Sorry don't remember the "address") It was made into a chorus and it is an older one, but still good. (Strictly from memory)

"As the mountains surround Jerusalem, the Lord surrounds His people. From this time forth and forever more, He shall not be moved, He shall not be moved."

and also this part of a verse from the Bible. It was addressed to someone who was to grow up to be a prophet......

"Before I formed you in the belly, I knew you. And before I raised you up from the womb, I sanctified you and I proclaimed you, a prophet unto the nations."

God knows this baby in the womb and He has sanctified it and proclaimed a calling for the baby. I send my utmost prayers for peace and joy and rest for everyone involved who are patiently waiting for your arrival, little one!

Well, the days are going too fast. We have been busy with fixing more around the house, playing at the nursing homes on Monday and Tuesday. and just routine things.

Prayers for Whitney. She is so close now and may she have a healthy baby.

Today is music class. Our class luncheon is next Wednesday and we each bring a covered dish for lunch. Each of us plays one of the songs we learned. Last night I just didn't like my songs sound so I changed the whole thing. Now this morning I have to see if I made good choices.

Summer arrived a few days ago but we still have rain and storms. It is more like April showers. Hope all is well with each of you.

Hi everyone! I am not sure if I asked you to pray for Whitney or not, but Praise the Lord (after 3 miscarriages) her 4th baby is still alive and doing well in utero. She normally loses them at 7 months and is in her 8th month now. I would appreciate your prayers though that this baby will be born healthy. Thank You. blessings upon all of you.

Rainy day and reunion for me. I took a sugar free cherry pie and only made 1 trip to the buffet. Small turnout, but my dad is the only one of his immediate family left, so a lot of the others didn't come.

Hope you all are staying dry today, unless you need the rain...we don't...

We made it last night. Seven and 1/2 hours at the concession stand. It was not bad. We were in the stand that was on the concourse behind first base. We could watch the game and see the whole field except for first base. When we have worked the WVU football games you are in a room off the stadium and you see nothing. We were selling Brats, beer, soda, water, candy, and peanuts. One of the balls went right over our tent top on to the grass behind us. A fellow slid down the grassy hill to pick it up. Sadly the West Virginia Black Bears were no match for the Mahoning Valley Scrappers(dog) .The Scrappers were 15 and the Bears were 7 at the end. It was so funny because they played "Who Let the Dog Out" toward the end.

Tired today! Hope all of you are doing well..

I decided against mowing yesterday since the temp was 99 instead of 90. Call me a wimp; I don't care. It's overcast here today with a slight chance of rain. Thanks to an active Pacific tropical storm/hurricane season, we may see more rain in our desert. When I lived in Texas and the southeast, I counted on hurricanes in the Gulf and the Atlantic. Now that I've moved west some, it's the Pacific that brings moisture.

Have a great day, everyone. Practice abstinent eating and be grateful for your blessings.

The weather sure makes the person feel tired. The air is really heavy. I have finished the one flower bed stones. When i get the other one done I'll add a picture.

Today is a good day. I am working on music and having lunch with my daughter.

I was very careful at church last night as they had hamburgers and hotdogs. Everyone brought a dish. I didn't eat the hotdog but a plain hamburger with mustard and relish. I didn't look at hte gooey desserts. It was a well attended event so there was a lot of good food.

I think we have too much food at all events. I guess people just come to eat. I belong tot he best food groups. All the different things I am in all have good food. It is really hard with all the temptations.

It is Thursday and Friday is in sight. I'll let you know how the opening game for the WV Black Bears Baseball team goes. Dave and I are on the schedule to run one of the concessions. It is a sold out game.

Weight is down a couple. My clothes are making the weight loss more noticeable though. Had a pair of jeans on this morning that I haven't worn in about 8 years. YES, I hang on to my clothes that long, especially if I like the way they fit WHEN I can fit into them! I even have a pair my sister wore when she was in nursing school, and that was about 25 years ago! Definitely out of style...

Hot & muggy here but overcast, not sunny here. The ground is sopping wet from all the rain...

I'm trying to throw together a family picnic for my parents' 60th wedding anniversary next week. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, but it didn't dawn on me until a couple of weeks ago! Thank God, I have a fairly big family to help get it all done! Mom hasn't mentioned a thing...

And so, the get-togethers of summer begin...

Yes, I have two of them. Great for walking in the heat! Thanks for prayers for my knee. Have gone once to physio and going again in the morning. Today my left foot and leg are all puffed up. I got weighed in and although my measurements were the same, I was not surprised at all about two pounds gain. It will go down. I posted a blog on a 30 day challenge I took today. Take a look, will you?

Hello, all, and welcome to the middle of the week. My husband made an impulse buy of cooling towels--those things you wet and put around your neck to keep you cool in hot weather. I thought I'd try one this afternoon when I get home and try mowing a little of the yard. I need to mow a lot, but it's supposed to be 90 this afternoon and I don't want to stroke out. Have a great day everyone.

WooHoo!! I am back down form the 3 pounds gained at vacation. It really is hard to keep this plan going. It has taken a week to get back.

Working on the stones around the flower beds today. I just hope it doesn't rain. It is cloudy and a bit windy. I prefer to work on the cloudy days because the hot sun just wears me out. We'll see how far I get.

Enjoy your day.

Rose I will add Karen. Praying that her life settles down and she stays well.

Tired today but we usher so ready to go to church. I made the Gluten free Nutella bars for today and have some GF ginger cookies. We had more storms last night. At least I don't need to water the gardens.

Pray you are all blessed in some way this week.

We worked the Kiwanis garage sale today. It started to rain and we didn't get too many people.

Here is a better set of instructions for the brownies.(Gluten Free)
2 Ingredient Nutella Brownies
4 large Eggs
1 cup Nutella
•powdered Sugar, optional

Instructions
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Line an 8x8 brownie pan with parchment paper; set aside.
3. Place the eggs in your mixer's bowl and beat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the eggs have tripled in size. This may take up to 10 minutes with a handheld mixer on high.
4. Heat the Nutella in the microwave for 60 seconds.
5. Remove and stir.
6. Slowly pour a stream of the warm Nutella over the eggs, beating until mixture is thoroughly combined.
7. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out with very few crumbs.
8. Remove and let completely cool before cutting.
9. Dust with powdered sugar.
10. Cut into bars and serve.
Notes
***DO NOT put the Nutella-Jar in the microwave. Measure out 1 cup of Nutella and microwave it in a microwave-safe bowl.

They are pretty good and not a lot of sugar.

Sue for your nutella brownies. How long do you heat it in the microwave (in a proper microwaveable container)? I just might make up this recipe.

My knee is really acting up. Went to see nurse yesterday and I have a morning appt. on Tuesday for physio. Still icing it and I am using my hubby's cane. It keeps me walking straight. Wow, it hurts quite a bit when walking. When at rest, it aches.

But it is only temporary. This too shall pass.

Had a great salad and some hummus with crackers and a decaf for lunch. But they were handing out ice cream bars and I had one....then I have to admit, I am leaving the lunchroom and I got handed a brownie. It is a surprise when someone walks up to me and offers food. I am not prepared for it and I give in. I don't have brownies at home, do not seek them out.

My bad! I will do better ....oh well I passed on the donuts. WHat is it about Friday when people bring in all the food.

I brought in a platter of veggies and dip about one and a half weeks ago. Everybody liked it.

I have to learn to say NO

Ann I hope your leg is not to painful. Yes Katie learned Uncle Dave reallly fast. He just beamed. Her mother is Sue as I am. When Katie gave us tea cups at pretend tea party she looked at me and said Sue too or 2 which ever was in her head. I thought that was cool. She realized we are named the same. I think she will give her parents a busy time.

Vicky I am not glad we are both having problems stopping the sugar . I did the first day well and then we ate out. Today Is another busy one. I seem to break after I get really tired.

I made Nutella brownies for gluten free people at church. 1 cup Nutella and 4 eggs.
Beat the eggs for about 7 to 10 minutes. Heat the Nutella in the micro. (not in its jar) use micro safe container. Pour the Nutella into the egg mixture and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into a 8 by 8 pan lined with parchment paper and bake about 30 - 35 minutes.
Cool completely before cutting. You can put a little powdered sugar on the top. I didn't.
These are really good and no extra sugar. I had this when Dave had ice cream last night.

I have to make some sugar free jello today. Not easy trying to go with less sugar.

We are loading and unloading our car about 2 or 3 times with t he stuff for th Kiwanis garage sale tomorrow. It is at one of the members homes that is in a good traffic area for this. I still have more to get rid of.

Happy Friday. Sue

Not doing real well myself this week. My scale died and I had to go buy batteries for it. When I did get on, I was unhappy, but my official weigh in is tomorrow morning. Not doing real well kicking the sugar either. I just keep telling myself that tomorrow is another day...

Sue: Katie is so cute. What a beauty and takes a great picture too. Uncle Dave seems to be enjoying the company too.

P.S. Last Wednesday I had lost two pounds but had gained a bit in the measurements. This Wednesday I had gained one pound but the measurements showed I lost two centimeters in my waist and my hips! Huh?????? Not to worry though

Using my hubby's cane. I have a physio appt. on Tuesday next. Well bye for now. Everyone be blessed!

Well yesterday was packed with many things. I did see that I was up 3 pounds but that will not take long to drop. We really ate well but not a lot of sweets. Dinners out for 4 nights was probably the most we have had for a long time.

Today is music lesson and catch up here at home. I have more to put in the Kiwanis garage sale that is this Friday. I also have to bake brownies becuse we do a bake sale at that time too. We have free coffee. Some people just come and buy something to eat and have coffee. They look around and find something they will buy.


I am so grateful for the trip and the days wit Katie Picture below with Uncle Dave

Good for you Ann. I'm worried about the knee. I use ice and sometimes heat. Hope it gets better.

Well, tomorrow morring will tell how bad the vacation set me back. I am really going to try to go sugar free and less bread too.

We got home today about 2:30 pm and the storm came through but only for a few minutes. It didn't rain on us either Sunday or Today. It was a long drive.

Glad to hear how everyone is doing. I appreciate each of you and your support. We can do this together.

Unpack tonight. Back on track tomorrow.
Sue

I can't believe it but I did NOT have smores or even the hotdogs and buns offered on the weekend. I think it was mostly because there was lots of veggies, fruit, crackers, dips etc. so I saved some calories.

Spent about 90 minutes doing the mini golfing, I wore my knee brace so it is not too bad. I got some exercise too. Did some leg exercises for my knee. The pain is pretty bad. Not one to take a bunch of pain meds. I am sitting here with an ice pack on my knee.

I read all of your posts and congratulate Vicky and Sue for planning to go sugar free.

New Librarian - I think it is neat to enjoy your hubby's company. I missed mine because his legs hurt after mini golfing and stayed home from church. I realized how much I need him beside me.

So great to hear about your son Liz

Sue: glad you enjoyed your vacation and weather for driving was good

To our great organizer - I also had thoughts of organizing but not doing too much now til the knee mends. Been sleeping on the couch so I don't have to do stairs. Been to work every day though

Short and full weekend.
Helping out an elderly friend with many problems and a serious hoarding issue. Busy busy busy day on Saturday with her, lots accomplished though.
Took it way easy today with a slow start and time in the exercise room and pool. Spent a lot of time enjoying my husbands company which is good.
New week tomorrow. Need to work hard on the eating part of the puzzle and get some serious exercise in.

I am not skilled to understand what GOD has willed what GOD has planned I only know at his right hand stands one who is my SAVIOR
