Instead of going out to eat, I am making a dinner here for the two of us. Chicken and dressing (low fat, low sodium), roasted potatoes and carrots, pea salad, green beans, rolls and green salad. I LOVE dressing! (or stuffing - whatever you want to call it)
We are sunny in the 60s!
Have a great day tomorrow, everyone!

Every once in awhile I crave meat. My mother always said I was too lazy to chew :) My meal is really not bad - turkey - it's not glopped up, I'll have a baked sweet potato, and salad. No dessert this year, I think cause of gluten free - usually do a sweet potato cake. DH is the one with the big calorie load. Oh yes, but the stuffing is the category killer :) My background is Jamaican so I do a jerk pork roast, the kids like. Every one around us has snow today but we are on South Shore so just rain.
Happy Thanksgiving all!

Linda, I can't imagine eating no meat. I know it works for you but I think I am part carnivore like my cats! Suze your dinner sounds so mouth watering and dietless..haha.
I fixed a small turkey earlier this month with just a few sides. I don't celebrate the holidays but I do like fixing turkey at least twice a year. I'm just not crazy about ham anymore. My room mate is Puerto Rican and she likes doing a pork roast with lots of onion and garlic. It's really quite good. One of the few Puerto Rican dishes I like.
We still have lots of sun here in SoCal but the days are of course shorter and cooler. Last night I made chicken soup with lots of veggies, garlic and onion. Mmmm...I love soups and stews this time of year. Hope everyone is having a great day.

Hope your toe heals soon, Dlite! and Diane, your foot too.

Suze, your Thanksgiving dinner sounds yummy! We are going out to eat, but no meat for me.

Sheryl, I am eating that way, but yet to get results on heart. My diabetes is in control, however. you all know I have that new diagnosis of A-Fib since Oct. 28.

I have been pretty strict vegetarian for a month except for chicken once a week. The last time I tried vegan, my mouth broke out in sores from lack of amino acids. So if I eat chicken once a week, I do fine in that respect. Organic chicken, of course! I eat dairy, but also organic and not much of it.

Have a nice Thanksgiving, if we don't see you again on the thread!

The three major illness that affect us today are heart disease, type two diabetes, and cancer,
All are cured of made better by a whole food, plant based diet. Our doctors in the US are far behind many other countries in knowing this important fact.

Yes, Diane inserts help. And Linda gout may have been it. Eating vegan or vegan like causes stuff to disappear.
Continuing our winning run, a truck knocked out our mailbox yesterday morning - we live on a very small dead end.
And last night as we started to eat dinner, a fan in the fridge went berserk. It is LOUD and we are going to get part hopefully this a.m. and I have major meeting at 9:30.
Thanksgiving is just us and the kids might stop by to say hey but we will be getting ready for elves on Friday
Turkey breast marinated in soy and honey, yes dressing/stuffing :cornbread, sausage and apples, sweet potatoes for me, mashed for him and he has that string bean casserole. And a big salad.

emoticon hello beauties!
I managed to get in 4 laps at the mall today; which is 2 miles or 40 min. At first my heel was in a lot of pain. I didn't think I could complete a full lap at all but I persevered and the pain at best was a little less. Usually I pay the price when I walk like this but so far my foot on a scale of 1 to 10 is only about a 3! Could it be that the plantar faciitis is actually getting better due to the inserts in my shoes??? Time will tell.
I have been off my feet all week which gets me down emotionally. I really need to exercise for my mind as well as my body.
No Linda, I have no plans for the holiday either. Just taking it easy. I fixed a turkey earlier in the month anyway. I don't like all that heavy fattening food.
Norma, my room mate and "sister" is going to visit her parents for the week on Thursday. They are close to 90 and need her help alot now. Lucky for her it's only less than an hours drive away. I used to go 5 hrs to see my mom. All my family live so far away. ENJOY today and have a blessed day!

The wrist has been in pain for years. Diagnosed as carpal tunnel. Could it have been gout all those years? Hmmm...

I hope everyone has a great week! What are you doing for Thanksgiving? We are doing nothing! We have had family events each month for the last 4 months, so now time for us.

Suze, I am glad nothing happened there!

We had our Thanksgiving feast at church today, it was nice. I am not eating turkey, so I had veggies. No one brought dressing either! I would not have been able to resist it. I love dressing! Even though I am not eating meat, except chicken once a week, we took turkey from Honey Baked Ham. DH said it was delicious.

Foot is slowly coming back to normal. Funny thing, a watch that was tight is now loose. Cannot explain it. I have lost only a lb. lately. Is it the vegetarian eating? Puzzled.

We are warm today, low 60's and sunny. You are right so much to do. Major excitement this afternoon - 6 police cars on block and blocking exit. We are dead end so only way out is throught woods. Only three occupied houses. Kid across street taken out in cuffs. Not comfortable as two years ago SWAT team there and a few weeks ago marked and unmarked cars. don't know what's going on but I can't run.
Hard to believe this is the last week in November!

Yes, I feel OLD with my cane. I am getting better, but still some pain.
I have more energy! Yesterday I made corn chowder, cherry almond muffins and got lots of work done on a new business venture.
Great that you don't have to be at work until December, Suze!
Have a great day everyone!

And the cane just adds insult to injury. I have a very pretty butterfly one. Class with kid went well. He just doesn't know how to use the email program. Glad I don't have to be in office till December! Imagine that!

Sometimes it seems some people get to skate by in life...

Suze, it is so frustrating with the shoes. Maybe we can beadazzle all our ugly shoes? emoticon

I am better today with the gout. Only shoes that feel good are house shoes. I went to a dinner last night with one tennis shoe and one house shoe and cane. Had French onion soup and a lettuce salad with strawberries pecans and feta crumbles. Delicious! Everyone else had steak and fish, but I am not eating meat presently.

Have a great day everyone!

Oh I so relate with the shoes. I have some lovely clothes but the brace and the tie shoes are a downer. Had issue at work on Friday that just burned me up - invited someone who I later found out was an intern to a class they need to take if they want to use a system - 6 times since September! No reply, sent email saying I would have appreciated knowing you weren't coming, you will no longer be invited. System owner told me to remove kids access. His boss threw hissy and now I have to do a special one on one class with this little .....
I was so furious that my physical therapist saw it in my body as soon as I walked in the door. I have to work on that

Right about Cracker Barrel. I don't eat bacon, so not much for me to eat there.

Suze, great on the abs.

The wedding was absolutely beautiful and traditional! Everything was first class all the way.

Only problem, I developed a full blown case of gout while away. I literally could not get my left shoe on my foot... guess what I wore to the wedding? Skechers! Ruined the whole effect. Could not dance. Bummer. Lace dress and Go Walks. What a combo!

Cold today here, in the low 40s, but the sun is out.

Cracker Barrel is certainly not conducive to eating healthy. I do like their breakfasts though, you just have to be choosy.
I ordered their vegetarian plate once when traveling, all the veggies were cooked in bacon grease!!

Oh and Linda my nails barely make it to the next morning. Diane I am metro New York, Long Island to be specific. We may get snow tonight! Glad I work remotely on Fridays. And nice news today, I'll work remotely Thanksgiving week - yea sleep! And I am on an abs streak. Excited also that suit I bought this fall is loose. I need to keep this up. Somehow I always slip up and go back but approaching 60 I think it's time

Linda I will def try the BBQ in Houston when I go. As for the veggies, they sound YUMMY too! Suze where do you live? We get ads on TV for Cracker Barrell too here in SoCal. Facebook has a website called "Bring Cracker Barrell to Southern CA." I guess one day they will have one here..would be awesome!
Have a nice time at the wedding Linda.

Sorry to hear about the pain Diane. My kitties are sleeping on my feet. We are seeing ads for cracker barrel here. To give you an idea of what I was married to my ex bil thought Perkins was close to fine cuisine - seriously!
Can't retire and really like what I do but seem to be in my own personal mercury retrograde vortex

Diane, I have been to Cracker Barrel and la Madeline both. Plus, you will need to eat barbecue when you are in the Houston area. Great bbq here in Texas! Yes, Cracker Barrel is fine Southern cooking, lots of fried foods and butter! emoticon You can get a veggie plate but the veggies are seasoned with butter and bacon!

I got my nails done, now trying to keep them nice until Saturday night! We leave tomorrow so I had to get them done today.

Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday. I awoke with more heel pain so taking it easy today. I walked yesterday and the pain was excruciating all day. I am wondering perhaps if the cooler weather is to blame. Ah well..life goes on. I will survive. ALEVE isn't helping all that much.
The kitties are on my bed snuggling right now. Earlier they were racing through the apt. My sister is away with friends to Palm Springs..her first time there. It's only about an hour and ten minutes by car from where we live. I have never been there either. I'm the homebody although I plan to visit my daughter next year in Texas. She lives close to Houston in a town called Cypress. Very pretty there. I especially love Cracker Barrell restaurant and country store; although not conducive to my diet. Linda, have you eaten at Cracker Barrell?? My daughter has also taken me to la Madeleine's. It's a quaint sandwich shop. Well, everyone stay focused and have a great day!

Getting mani/pedi today. How does this work in the cold weather? I will have to wear flip flops in the cold. Shouldn't be too bad for a short distance. Going tomorrow to south Texas for wedding, will be back late Sunday, so I will be offline a few days.

Suze, I hope you get to retire soon. Diane, glad the weather is better for you.

We are going to be cold throughout the weekend, even in south Texas! Loving it!

Have a great weekend!

Linda, I hate being on blood pressure meds. But, alas, I don't want to stroke either so I will take them. When I get another 20 lbs off I may be able to lower the dose. I hope to get off completely one day but it runs in my family so I may never be able to.
FINALLY a cool day today!! It's after 3 p.m. and it's still cloudy and cool. Fall like temps are expected all week too. YAY is all I can say.
Hope everyone having a great day today.

Midwest bundle up today! We are cold in Texas... for us. High in the 50s.

Getting ready for the big wedding, leaving Thursday, will be home Sunday night.

Had a visit to cardiologist today. Have to stay on new drugs. Stroke risk, I sure don't want that! So I will take my pills.

We have our new table and chairs plus rug. Looks nice!

I had a lovely birthday yesterday. My birthday was announced at church, then we went to lunch with friends, 16 in all and I had a "birthday sopapilla" with candle. Dh gave me the traditional years supply of fragrance. Then we went shopping for Christmas lights.
Feeling blessed.

emoticon I still have the air conditioner on..it's 90 degrees. Crazy! My daughter in Cypress TX has a sweater on her little dog. It's 52 degrees over there..at least it was this morning.
Two doctors have told me that walking is the best exercise; better even than swimming. And, I was reading in the Atkins book (3rd doctor) that it is better to walk briskly rather than jog or run. I am going to remember that.
Hope you all have a great weekend...

Hi, ladies! Good to see all of you on here.

Suze, support is always good. Diane, keep walking! Sheryl, I bet that house will sparkle!

Getting ready for the wedding next week.

Today I have to take dh's truck to get the turn signal checked out. It is blinking really fast on the left one. Then I will get some other errands done.

We had 30 hours of rain this week plus cooler weather. Love it! AND I feel so much better this week after last week's ER visit.

Have a great Friday!

Happy Birthdays!! Don't forget the cookbook! I don't have to go into office till next Wednesday! I'd be doing cartwheels if I could! The challenge will be walking and drinking enough water. Lunch with a friend tomorrow. She also has autoimmune issues so we are forming our own little support group. Then lunch with niece on Sat. French restaurant with awesome salads. More food research this weekend

emoticon TGIT! The week is winding down again. As I text I have the air conditioner on at home. It's in the 90's again here in SoCal where I live. Hmph! Not what I expect for November. My daughter in Cypress TX is getting lots of rain. OH HOW WE'D LOVE SOME OF IT! Anyhow, today I went to the mall with my sister and we did our 4 laps which is equal to 40 minutes or 2 miles. My foot was hurting otherwise I would've liked to have done 6. Hope everyone has a good evening and getting used to the time change.

Oh yeah, Suze! I already forgot about the cookbook. I am always creating something. The cashews were a great addition.

Root soup I remember, with potatoes, beets, parsnips, carrots... I forget what else, Sheryl. Probably onions and celery for flavor.

Have a great day everyone!

There is a winter soup I make when it is cold here in FL, called Root Soup, I found it in a Vegetarian Times magazine, cut it out and saved it but lost it when we moved into this condo. If any of you know of it please share.

Diana, I am getting a haircut today. Must be time.

Great on the scale, Suze!

We have rain all day today and cool. Love it! I can use an umbrella for my new hair "do".

I made chili yesterday for dh, I don't eat red meat any more. He should love it. For myself, I have an invention I created, a soup of carrots, onions, potatoes, garlic, vegetable broth and cashews. I will also make a large green salad and cornbread.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Great on the loose clothes, Suze.

I have never been a fan of butternut squash or pumpkin... I do like other types of squash. Tastes can change, though! I did not like sweet potatoes growing up and now I do!

Have a great day everyone!

Diana, hang it there, the scale will eventually move.

We got table and chairs. Called Haverty's to order what we had seen and the table was out of stock until AFTER December! Upset! So dh went with me to Star Furniture to see in person the table and chairs I first fell in love with, the Paula Deen. At first they said out of stock on the table too until end of November, then they located one... hmmm. At least dh liked it in person. We got a cheap rug at the "At Home" store. Will get a nicer one later on, when some bills are paid down. Table and chairs to be delivered on Nov. 11 because dh will be home that day. So excited! Our other one is really shabby looking and one seat will not stay on, no matter what.

Niece's wedding is coming soon. Getting nails done next week. This week is hair appt. and carpet cleaning. Also my birthday is coming soon... busy time of year!

I need to do something different but I'm not sure what. The scale isn't moving but my clothes are loose. Are my clothes old and stretched out? I don't think so cuz I needed to buy new ones when my old ones looked hideous. I must be doing something right but the scale isn't moving.

It is freezing here today and very, very windy. About 10,000 people are without power. It only reached high 40's today but feels much colder.
Nice on the rug, Linda.
Made kale salads, date bars and squash soup. You can tell the way I am eating is changing!

Sheryl, Texas is the same way! We are chilly this morning too, but I love those days.

We shopped for table and chairs yesterday. Haverty's looks like the place! We are also getting a new rug and Sheryl, I am taking your advice on olefin!

Carpets will be cleaned this week, thank goodness and I will decorate for fall.

Suze, that is a great idea about the book.

Have a great day and great week, everyone!

And you know I am lusting after that sleep. Went to a new salon today and paid my usual fortune to get it dyed. She dyed my eyebrows. We'll see how it goes. I did really well in PT yesterday. Two weeks in a row. DH is excited. As some of you know we took a letter that FIL wrote about his history and turned it into a book for the kids last Christmas and then made one for his Dad this summer. He loves it apparently and was telling one of my SILs how great it was. ticked her off royally. So now since we have all the family pix we are doing one for our elf nieces that shows their Mom and grandma. I was struck last year by how they even stand like their grandmother who they never knew!

We have tile and carpet both. Tile is in the kitchen, dining, family room area. The other rooms are carpet. Would love to have tile throughout, but you have to pick and choose when building a house.

Tired still, but no more fibrillation. I guess it will take some time to get used to the new meds.

Have a great day! Anyone "dressing up" for Halloween? We are not participating this year. Not giving out candy... a huge amount of kids always hit our neighborhood and I am not up to it.

I have ceramic floors or wood throughout my house. I love the area rugs and have had them for well over 10 years and they still look new. They are made from Olfin, I have had them cleaned a few times right in my house. 3 cats, no problem

Glad you are feeling better Linda. Sheryl, thanks for the info on sisal. I like sisal but DH says no because of our "girls" They rip up our rugs anyway! Working from home tomorrow. Yeah, no 4 a.m.

That is helpful Sheryl. What is happening with my wool rug is that I find little tufts that have been pulled out by the kitties. Overall it is not noticeable, but they love the feel of the thick wool rug. We haven't been able to discourage that!

I am feeling better today. I am taking it easy the rest of the week, but did walk on the treadmill 10 minutes today. Now I am taking more meds. I guess that is better than a stroke!

Could be, sisal is woven grasses although some are made from man made fibers to look like sisal. Can you tell I was in the flooring business for over 20 years???? lol

Sheryl, I will check it out. The reason we were thinking of jute is because we have little jute pads on the floor and they do scratch away on them. There is no noticeable damage, so we thought an inexpensive rug they could scratch on would be great. Maybe the olefin would be more attractive.

I was in the ER last night with atrial fibrillation, something new for me. Now I have to take more drugs. I am not happy about it, but it's better than having a stroke. I do not react well to some drugs, so dh is staying home with me to see how I do today. Thankfully my heart settled down while I was there and I did not have to go to the hospital which is what they were first saying I would have to do.

Yes, things are shifting around. Not happy and yes my middle is different. I am struggling with new way of eating. Hey, I think I am reacting badly to chocolate so things are working. More responsibility again at work!

Linda, Jute is what they make scratching posts with. I would re-think that choice. We have rugs of olefin, the cats scratch away but it never frays or pulls. They were by Coronet Carpet. They have been bought out by another large company, but your carpet store should be able to tell you by who.

Diane, once we went out with a group of 8 and one couple ordered one dessert to split. They came out with the largest piece of chocolate cake any of us had ever seen! We all had some and there was some left over!

Suze, things have shifted on my body, is that what you mean? I don't like it one bit. My waist is larger than ever I look really round compared to what I have ever looked like! My photos tell the story, unfortunately. I do abdomen exercise to no avail!

The aqua fit is off for now. The pool heater is broken and the water is very cold feeling. Last week my teeth were chattering at the end. I can use the gym equipment, but I worked out at home today. Off to shopping today too. Getting a few odds and ends finished, plus looking at table and chairs.

When we moved in 6 years ago, we got a new table and chairs. It looked good but was cheap. Now it is crumbling. We are going to get a solid wood set. My home is casual, so it is not a formal dining room. My kitchen, dining and family room all flow together, very open. Then the cats keep pulling out tufts from the ivory colored rug under the table. I am thinking jute rug. It will look nice and the cats can't hurt it.

Went to the mall to walk this morning but didn't do too many laps because my foot was hurting somewhat. I should prob stop walking for awhile until it heals completely. Took ALEVE but even that isn't helping all that much. Went to the vitamin store then out to lunch. Kept my portions small and always have water ~and never dessert; at least not the restaurant type. I saw the waitor bringing a dessert to someone and it certainly looked a mile high! I stared at it wondering why and how people can eat like that. Well..hopefully whoever got that was sharing it with someone.

They will be perfect with a lace dress! I am really close to my goal weight but when I look at myself I realize things have shifted and I need to go lower. I have reset my goals. We'll see what happens.
Stressed about finding affordable health care. My insurer is dropping its plan. Its suggested replacement is hundreds more a month for less coverage. It's scary

The shoes are just FINE Linda! They are stylish and feminine looking, not clunky at all. You can wear them with dress pants or a skirt. Who knows? You may start a trend!

Are these 11 year old shoes to clunky looking for today? I tried on my new shoes again today for the wedding and they hurt my feet. I found this pair in my closet and they are comfortable, but are they dated?

Please go to my page photos and let me know. I am so tired of shopping for shoes and not finding any that don't hurt my feet. I found a pair that I loved but they did not have my size, the 9's were too big. I wear 8.5.

Aqua fit is kicking my rear this week. The pool heater is broken and we are practically freezing. I did not know the pool was heated! It was not like the physical therapy pool. The water temp has been 78 and it is usually 82. Those 4 degrees make a big difference. Plus, the instructor was out and we had a sub, who did a lot of arm exercise. My shoulders are sore.

Yes, sleep is nice, at night. I have to take a low dose tranquilizer to sleep. It works for me, but I wake up occasionally.

I would love to be able to wear heels, but those days are over. It's now the low heels and they are almost too much for me.

If I worked in that shoe store, Jill, I wouldn't be taking home a paycheck!

On Dr Oz yesterday he had a doctor talking about SLEEP and how to get a good nights sleep. My room mate said she has a difficult time sleeping..getting to sleep and waking during the night. I have occasional bouts of insomnia too. Anyway, the doctor suggested going to bed at 10 p.m. and waking no later than 6 a.m. We often "drift off" at 8 p.m. while watching TV. Well..no more! We are going to try the suggestion here. Perhaps that will help until daylight savings time!

emoticon Happy Monday!
Cool 62 degrees this morning. I just want to lay around all day in my pj's and hang with the whisker boyz! But alas, not taking a day like that quite yet. Still no rain in the forecast for SoCal but at least the weather is cooling. Talked to my daughter yesterday who is feeling like an "empty nester" bc she has a teenage girl who doesn't want to hang out with mom anymore. Well, I remember those days too. Not easy for any of us. Anyway, staying on tract with my eating. Tomorrow is a big day at the gym. Zumba for my room mate and treadmill and weight machines for me. Then we will swim an hour.

It is especially when you have small feet, I wear a 4 1/2 with narrow feet. I usually have to settle for a 5 med. unless I spend a lot of money. I hate this as I live in my slippers in the house and flip flops outside, never get the wear out of the other kinds of shoes.

Shoe shopping is the worst! Yes, I would love to go shopping with all of you. My mother was Jamaican and we had to wear shoes all the time. In the summer, socks and sandals! As soon as I could no shoes. I had a boss who used to say We pay you enough to buy shoes and wear them! Celebrated youngest 25th birthday tonight. Will post pic of cake that DH made. Worked today and more tomorrow. But it is billable hours!

I went shopping, still no shoes. I was to meet friends at 3:30 and did not have time for more. I am going Monday to Macy's, Rack Room and Famous Footwear, should be something there. I did get dh a birthday present. His birthday is next week.

Well, for some reason I woke up at 5:30 this morning after getting to bed at midnight. So far, I am fine, but might need a nap later on. emoticon Dh is still sleeping, which is good, he worked all day yesterday and then worked a football game last night.
