Oh I didn't realize he was still under the weather. He will get to it soon enough.

Gray day here, need to go get my walk in anyway. Hope it doesn't rain on me! emoticon

Bob's had a touch of flu the past few days so he hasn't done much of anything. He'll have a lot of organizing to do in the garage before he can actually start making anything. Everything's still in crates, etc.

I did get in a one mile walk today, but DH didn't want to walk any further. Oh well something is better than nothing. Plus my hip is always bothering me so better not to overdo it. Gosh, I am so sorry about your bike, I remember reading one of your blogs that said the doctor said it was a no go. Isn't getting old the pits? I remember the good old days and nothing slowed me down.

I have been playing on Pinterest so I guess I should be my flip flops out. emoticon

Well, I just sold my exercise recumbent bike. I hated to do it and I lost money on the deal but there's no point in hanging on to it if the doctor says I can't use it. Let someone else have it that can make good use of it.
Bob seems to be doing a little better today. Not as many bathroom trips, so that's good.

Oh I am so sorry to hear that, tell him that I hope he feels better really soon.

We just had a really cool hail storm here. I think I am going to try a new WATP DVD I just got today. Too much weather to walk in plus it will just be easier. emoticon

Sounds like you are done earlier than most people! Enjoy going out to eat - that is always fun!

We tried to walk today but boy the weather got rainy and windy so we cut it short. Then I had to go pick up my meds, more cold and rain! Brrrr. We are going to have spaghetti tonight.

Just got home from all the shopping and mailing off Christmas presents. WE ARE DONE !!
Going out to dinner after while so I don't have to cook tonight. If I had to cook tonight he'd have to settle for a sandwich. This girl is tired and my back is saying enough already !!

My computer is a windows 8.1 but it has windows 7 capasidy and I prefer 7 because I can have my folders on the desktop. Windows 10 would take away my windows 7 desktop.

Vicki I have heard that a new machine with windows 10 on it is good, but upgrading an old machine to Windows 10 is not a fun process. So good idea to stick with what you have!

Raining here today, so pretty, with everything so fresh. Yesterday we worked in the yard for over three hours. We have a two trees that don't lose their leaves until late! I'm going to take it easy today!

Bet they'll be nice when finished. I had to take a full pain pill last night before my back eased but I seem to be ok today. It's a little stiff feeling but that's all.
I was accepted as a co-leader so I'll be adding a QOTD each day now and I'll set up some holiday games.

For me, clothes shopping is a necessity not so much a fun thing.
But it's either buy a few things or end up naked, and noone wants that. LOL !!

Hi Vicki, getting new clothes is always fun! That's something I haven't done in awhile.

I really loved the blessing! Thank you!

We've been having evening thunder showers this week and it is cooling everything off! Yay because we broke a record of nine days in a row of 100+ degrees. I hope that kind of weather stays at bay for a while!

Have a happy day Vicki!

These were the Bomb! This recipe came from our friends who moved to WA. He used to own a fancy restaurant before he retired.

Hamburg’s Grilled Fit for a King


2 lbs. good quality hamburger.

¼ to ½ cup of fresh Basil chopped.. I don’t chop my too fine.

6 fresh large Garlic cloves cut/chopped fine… I like garlic.

¼ to ½ cup Green Onions long stem.

¼ to ½ Fresh Walla Walla sweet Onion… you can use White or Yellow onions as well, I’d stay away from the Red’s

1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce… little more won’t hurt.

1 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar… again a little more is fine.

½ to ¾ cup of Panko breeding.

2 fresh eggs.

Salt and Pepper… this one you’ll have to do to taste. I like about teaspoon of both



Put everything into a large bowl mix with hands thoroughly until egg and panko are well mixed into the meat.

Form large patties (makes about seven or eight) and cook on grill high heat. Don’t under-cook them (rare) they have egg in them.


Grill buns, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise perhaps a little cheese or sautéed mushroom… or add nothing and you’re eating.

Hope everyone will have a wonderful 4th of July celebration. We won't be doing anything special but the neighbors will do fireworks so we'll have a show to see.

Today is hot and muggy but thankfully we don't have to be out in it much. We got our running around done early.

Slow Cooker Spicy Pork Chops

1 cup chopped onion
4 cloves garlic minced
1 green pepper, diced
2 red peppers, diced
6 - 8 boneless pork chops, about 3/4 to 1 inch thick
1/4 t ground black pepper (or seasoned pepper)
1/4 t cayenne pepper
2 cups low sodium V-8 juice
2 T cornstarch

Place chopped onion, cloves and peppers in the bottom of the Crockpot.
Trim excess fat from pork chops; add to slow cooker on top of veggies.
Mix V-8 juice with ground pepper, cayenne pepper and 2 T cornstarch; Pour over all.
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours

Serves 6 - 8

The flu shot this year missed the mark. There have been a ton of cases of the flu this year: a strain the shot just didn't cover. Drink lots of water. Tamiflu can shorten the duration, but only by a couple of days, and you have to see the doc fairly quickly, like in the first couple of days. It sounds like it could be the flu.

I am not sure if someone can get the flu when they've had a flu shot, which I did get one.

I almost never get sick so I am not even sure this is the flu. My neck, back, arms and legs ache, runny nose and I also have the chills. A minute ago I threw up... I don't think I have ever had the flu! So I am clueless... does this sound like the flu?

My hip is almost normal now, thank you for asking Vicki.

Gosh Vicki I sure hope your weight doesn't hold at the higher unwanted number. You have been working so hard on your goals! I am just hoping that was a fluke.

I am also struggling. I had my weight down to 143 this summer and I always fall apart during the winter. I have SAD so I am barely holding at 151. So I am 8 pounds up. To make matters worst I have to go to the doctor pretty soon...

I know we can turn this around, so let's both keep trying our best and I just know it will all even out.

Kind of disappointed in myself. I decided to sneak a peek at my weight today knowing I'm supposed to hold off until tomorrow. And the numbers are really up there from the 1st. I'm up 4 lbs. So I'm not a happy camper, especially when I felt I was doing really well with my eating all week. Tomorrow is the "official" weigh in so we'll see what it shows then. I won't change my ticker until tomorrow.

Yes, he will be here tomorrow. In the meantime my dh runs the heater for a bit and then turns it off. So it's been nice.

I got up with a bad hip anyway so I've been in bed reading all day. I'm reading that new book "Still Alice." She gets Alzheimer's... page turner for sure.

I found a whole wheat Banana Bread recipe using yeast instead of salt. Was going to try it today but of course I didn't. hope it is good!

I haven't had bifocals for very long, but my first pair was progressive. I had to go back and have them redone. I just couldn't get used to it. The old fashioned ones, although a little harder on my ego, worked better for me. Sadly, according to my eye doc, I'm one of the few who just can't deal with it. It has been hard to adjust to finding the ideal head tilt without consciously thinking about it, but I'm getting there.

I'm adjusting to the glasses ok. I do know the next pair will be progressive though. These have very small area for bifocal and trifocal so it makes it a little difficult when I'm on the computer now. Depending on the size font, I either have to look through the bifocal or trifocal.

I'll bet that was quite a struggle as they tried to figure out what was going on with him. Thank goodness they did! I don't eat a lot of salt, but my SO loves the stuff. He does most of the cooking when he's home, and has learned not to add very much, and then add it on his own plate. But I've noticed over the years that he uses much less as well! But you're right; there are times when I just want something SALTY.

And don't worry about grossing me out - I'm not that girl. emoticon

It is a very little known disease and it took forever to find out what was making him so sick!

If he does not follow his low salt diet he spends all day in bed, dizzy, and throwing up. Sorry to be sounding so gross but it is what it is.

I have high blood pressure so I am okay with the low salt diet, but I still crave salt sometimes. :(

The flax seed crackers look interesting! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

I've never heard of Meniere's Disease - I had to look it up.

My son (who lives with us) has Meniere's disease. He can't even eat salted butter. If he eats too much salt he gets deathly ill So if he gets something packaged it has to have less than 200 grams of sodium per serving.

My DH likes to cook and I like to bake so between the two of us we manage quite well but we probably spend a lot more time in the kitchen than normal. But somehow it all works out. We have changed a lot of the ways we cook in the last 7 years.

I will probably make the fax seed crackers but I never add any of the salt they say to add. Everything tastes fine to me. We just add a lot of salt free seasonings to everything.

You're right about the sodium levels, Vicki. Sadly, they're often too high! I have trouble when I eat too much, too.

Spark people says mine should be between 1380-1730. I generally stay within the low end, usually around 1250-1350. My biggest issue is the sodium. I need to keep it under 2000 grams and it would be even better to keep it under 1500 grams since I retain fluid so badly. But it's really hard to keep it that low unless you're eating clean or completely fresh everything. And for our household, that's not going to happen. We have a limited food budget each month so I have to buy some things that can be stretched for 2-3 meals so that means prepackaged stuff or canned foods/frozen foods. And those all seem to have twice the amount of sodium than you'd think they'd have.

I haven't tried the fresco ones yet. Will have to next time.

I found what looks like a great recipe for Flaxseed and Cracked Pepper Crackers. Now I just need to buy some organic flaxseed! :)

I'd never had the fresco ones. I wasn't expecting them to be as good as the original, naughtier ones!

Vicki, I try to stay around 1200, give or take a hundred-ish. If you input all your stats into your SP profile, it will give you an estimated goal, but I feel it's a tiny bit high for me. If I stick to the SP suggested goal, I lose but very slowly. If I nudge it down a little, I lose but not too quickly. It feels just right. And I try to keep my pie graph at the foot of the food log page in the appropriate zones, or as close as I can get. They give a pretty balanced target.

If you're really wanting something salty, you can do far worse than pretzels!

I was surprised at how many of the fresco options there are on the TB menu. I just tried to fit my selections to how many calories, etc, I had left in my plan for the day. I'm a sucker for a taco!

Taco Bell has been having a lot of ads lately for the crunchy tacos. I haven't had anything from Taco Bell in years, but I may just have to try one of them.
You did great ! emoticon


I did something today I wouldn't normally do. I bought a bag of mini pretzels. I'm trying to watch the sodium but every once in awhile I want a crunchy snack that isn't a veggie. So I got the lesser of two evils ( pretzels vs doritos).
