Merry Christmas my dear ones. Each and every one of you. As eloquent as I often appear to be there are no words to express the deep amount of love, respect and gratefulness I feel for each of you.

I had a great weekend with my mama and one of my big sisters. I have lunch plans today with a couple of good friends at one of my favorite restaurants. I took delivery of my VSO's new recliner: a Christmas gift from his mom. I have a short work week followed by more family time, then later in the week, celebration with my daughter. My cup runneth over!

As soon as my Christmas cards starting coming in I feel the Christmas spirit! I love getting cards from friends who have moved away, and I also love those Christmas news letters from family!

Hope you start feeling better soon Vicki. emoticon

I finally did on Tuesday. This is the latest I've started (also Tuesday - ha!) and it was driving me crazy! So I shopped and got everything under the tree. And suddenly it seems like Christmas!

In a fit of optimism, I ordered my first reward, for 10 lbs. I bought some new knitting needles I've had my eye on for a special project. emoticon Having it waiting will spur me on to meet that goal - I'm less than a pound away!

The dogs are going crazy this morning because we have someone putting in a new kitchen door and they keep running back and forth barking. looks like this is a great time for head phones.

It is good to be back a-Sparkin'. It dawned on me last week that I have been part of this community for 5 years in a few weeks. Lottsa ups and downs. Many successes and an equal amount of un-successes. But I can say this with confidence that I have enjoyed every single moment I've been part of all of this.

Things are slowing down a bit which is always a good thing and I'm preparing to start a new book. (Please don't turn me in, lol)

I got some frozen brussels sprouts today - great minds think alike! All the veggies I found were frozen.

Don is making low sodium Bourbon Chicken tonight. Smells wonderful! Brown rice and Sugar Snap peas. :)

We went and did our grocery shopping for the rest of the month today and I'm hurting a good bit from being on my feet so much. But thankfully it's done now. Tomorrow we will go he fruit stand in town and pick up some fruit then a quick stop to get some brussel sprouts. I haven't had those in over 40 years and suddenly I want some.

It's especially bad if your spouse doesn't like a lot of fresh foods so he wants all the processed junk and you want the fresh stuff.

Lucky you! It is cold here today! Right now it is 45.5 degrees and we should get our first snow this Thursday on the Valley Floor. We have 4 seasons here - that's for sure.

Oh I agreed with what you wrote on Pixie's blog. I have noticed that the healthier something is the price goes UP as well.

I don't always get on first thing is the morning but when I have it's no problem. i was having a problem with my computer being really slow for awhile and I ran window defender, seems I had some stuff attached where it shouldn't be and it was slowing everything down. I probably should run it again pretty soon.

I know how to defrag or take out cookies. It's the ads that move or have dialog that's the problem.

I had to defrag my computer and then it started working right again.... I also used windows defender to get rid of registry errors and cookies. I believe office max will help you for free.

Defragging took a complete overnight to get it done. Good luck!

I have had a devil's own time getting anything done on sparkpeople today. The ads keep freezing everything up and I hit refresh til I'm blue in the face. Finally it allows me to log something or post something. Sure hope tomorrow is better.

Bet it looks terrific !

HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE !!
Our landlord was very happy with the job we did on his motorcycle and he paid us the agreed price. He says he'll have us do his other bikes which don't have all the chrome as we feel like it. It'll make us a few extra dollars and it gives us some much needed exercise.
We're set up for any trick or treaters that come by tonight. Usually we get 20-25 kids. Love to see all the costumes.
Hope it's a fun night for everyone.

Decided I'd better get on and post. I've been reading the posts but just haven't tried to do much more than that.
This morning Bob and I got out and washed and waxed our landlords Harley davison motorcycle. It's one of the real fancy ones with lots and lots of chrome. He asked if we wanted to make a few dollars so we said ok. Took us two full hours but looks nice. Just waiting now for the landlord to stop by and pay us for it. He has a big garage in our back yard and stores his motorcycles there. Anyway, we got our exercise for the day, that's for sure.
Hope everyone has a great Thursday.

Well, it's good you both know it wasn't worth it anyway. :)

I guess we are all back on track! emoticon

Yesterday's planned cheat day was nice but we both regret it today with weight gain. For Bob, it was a full pound but for me it was 2.8 lbs ! I pretty much undid a whole month's of hard work since this morning I weigh more than I have all month. I haven't changed my ticker because I'm hoping to have it back off by Sunday. I'm going to be super strict with myself the next few days and hopefully it'll be back to normal by Saturday. I'd like to be back to my regular weight to start off the new month.
What made it so bad was because we weren't used to it Bob got sick from the chili cheese fries and ended up throwing it all up. So because of that he compensated for it by loading up on cookies and a salami sandwich, which just made it worse. I'm really surprised he didn't gain more than just a pound. I didn't eat and eat and eat, but just what I did eat showed up on the scale this morning and also made for a restless sleep last night full of weird dreams. So we're back on track today.

emoticon O dear! So sorry for Bob and you two of course... :(

I made a new plan for myself and I am going to stick with it! I had a green drink today and I am going to have one every single day. Since I have had my gall bladder out I don't do every well with raw organic spinach and lettuce, but if I put them into a green drink it is fine. :)

I am also going to eat egg beaters and try to eat less cheese! I love cheese! Swiss has the lowest sodium though.

I will keep both of you in my prayers, changing eating habits is NOT easy!

Hopefully tomorrow will be better for both of us. I really went hog wild today and I regret it as I'm miserable now. And Bob ate so much it made him sick and he was in the bathroom throwing up. So no more big sodium cheat days from now on.

I chose to weigh in today. My weight is up a bit because I did what Bob is doing today Vicki. Oh well. I ate two slices of salty pizza at Costco's one day last week and another evening I ate some salty chips and dip. (My weakness).

I am glad you are getting the high sodium food out of your house. I still have some in mine :( But I am not buying anymore.

Walked my two miles today! :)

Good Morning . Today is going to be a VERY high sodium day for us ( the highest since Bob got out of the hospital ). He's wanting chili cheese fries for supper and plans to have chicken noodle soup for lunch. So sodium will be slightly double what he's supposed to have for the day. But considering he used to eat like this all the time, one time in 5 weeks isn't that bad. And it's getting the last of the high sodium foods out of the house. The rest of the week it'll be much much lower sodium and calories. So I'm not going to stress over just one day of bad eating.
Hope everyone has a great Monday.

I haven't been weighing myself but I think I need to pick a day and start doing that once a week.

Mine's too thin to color anymore. It would just thin it even more.

I have to color mine. I don't think gray plus light brown looks good on me. Oh well :)

Glad the baking soda helped! Yay!

I take 1,000 mg, twice a day (if needed). If I don't eat any carbs I don't take it.

What mg. of Metformin are you taking? When they first put Bob on it, it was 850 mg daily and it was keeping his stomach upset. Then it was cut to 425 mg and that seemed to help. But he's not on it at all anymore.
I'm feeling better. I finally broke down and took a dose of baking soda and water and that helped. I hate using it because of the sodium but it usually helps.

Humidity is 41% here and it sure does look like rain. Hope I get a chance to walk later today!

Sorry you are not all the way better yet. My Metformin pill is giving me problems with my stomach too. Almost doesn't seem worth eating carbs sometimes.

Wind started up... and sky is dark!

Glad Bob's device checked out okay. :)

I got my flu shot the end of last month.
I'm still not feeling 100% today. Still a lot of gassy pressure but it's more in my chest than stomach this morning. I know it's not my heart but it's uncomfortable.
Bob had his device checked this morning. All was well. He'll go for another check in Feb.
It's raining here and very humid.
