That is really annoying. I was lucky that when my fridge died, I had a small one in my garage. We used it for months until I finally bought a new one.

I am in Seattle now at the new house. The movers were terrible and nothing is in the right box, so it is really a crap shoot as to where things might be lurking. We did find some towels tonight which was a win.

Wow ! Sophie hoping you get the part to fix your fridge soon! It's hard to have to wait for appliance you need so bad! Shipping could cost an arm and a leg too?

Hope everyone will have a good day?

Yes I am renting, and she is involved, but out here parts have to be shipped to the island. That takes time. You can't buy appliances here so the also require shipping. I am hoping the part that was ordered will do the trick.

Sophie, aren't you renting? Isn't the landlord the one who is responsible for things like refrigerators?

Well still no fridge. Last night was a chicken sandwich on toast. Living out of a cooler is getting old. The person who was supposed to repair had to go off the island for a dental problem. He says it will be fixed tomorrow. My toes and fingers are crossed. Nell and Barbara I understand. I love my kids, but I am usually happy to say goodbye to the children and grandchildren. In someways I am more exhausted when we go to them. Rita you will hear my squeals of joy when I get a functional refrigerator.

A week and half of having my daughter and grandson here and I am so tired. Just not accustomed to the activity. Tomorrow we fly up to Seattle, for another week. I hate to admit it, but coming home next week is looking so inviting--being back on my own boring schedule!

I'm taking a 6' step ladder to son#3 today. Hubby was upset at first, but it turns out he is having a hard time accepting that he can't be on a ladder anymore.

Sorry about your fridge, Sophie.

It is a little dreary here this afternoon. This morning was beautiful. It would be all kinds of great if we got some rain.

Went to the park this morning with my SIL and grandson. SIL leaves tomorrow with the dog to drive up to Seattle, and my daughter, GS and I will fly up on Wednesday. I'm staying a week to help them get settled in. She was talking this morning about all the little things that have to get done when you move, especially to a different state. Royal pain, but at least, they can do things without the little guy.

Pouring down rain today. A good day to stay indoors and clean. Hubby will shortly be leaving for his weekly old guy breakfast with friends, so I'll be free to do my work without disturbing him.

We're back from the long day of getting the trike to the dealer. It's 85 miles from here, and, of course, it rained part of the way. At least it wasn't hot. We ate at Cracker Barrel for a late lunch, so that's all the food I get today.

Another beautiful day. Woke up with a dead refrigerator. Now we are living out of a cooler and hoping the part will get here Monday so DH can bring groceries from the mainland on Tuesday. Tonight we are ordering pizza.

I ran a million errands today because tomorrow we take hubby's CanAm trike down to the dealer for a consignment sale. It's a two hour ride down. I'll follow in the car to bring him back, or take over riding for him if he gets tired. It will be a long, sad day. Although looking back the really sad day was when he sold his motorcycle for the trike. Turned out to be a bad idea. Hopefully he'll feel better tomorrow night. Then we wait for however long it takes for someone to buy it, which is totally contingent on price.

It is also glorious here today as well. However last night was wild with thunder, lightning, and high winds. However despite the dog's fear, it lead to a perfect day today. Tonight it will be an heirloom tomato and ricotta-pesto tart.

It was 65 mile an hour winds that took down all the trees last week. I can't imagine 70.

I fried trout tonite and had corn on the cob and a salad. Hubby complained about the fish, but he ate it. And picked the bell pepper out of the salad.

So we have had wind and fog today. Right now we are under a tornado watch. Also have severe thunderstorm warning with gusts up to 70 miles an hour. At the moment there a lot of boats here for an international sail boat race. I expect there are some unhappy people. Tonight we are having linguini with a meat sauce I had in the freezer. I feel like time is ecellerated as I get older. I would love to slow it down.

June always goes by quickly, I don't know why. I guess I spend too much time looking forward to it. It's in the 90s today, will be nearly 100 tomorrow. I hope we don't get more storms from the heat.

I am making pork posole. I hope my hubby eats it. He forgot how to do something on his motortrike, finally figured it out, but it was really hot and he cut himself pretty badly. He will be pickier than usual, I fear.

By "home" do you mean the island, Sophie?

My hubby was supposed to go out to eat with his son and grandson today for Father's Day, but he said he didn't feel well. He gets so tired these days, and just going to church wiped him out. I wasn't planning on cooking tonight since I thought he'd have a good lunch, but he still wasn't hungry tonight. We just had cereal.

Tropical Storm Bill rained a lot, but the flooding and power failures were just to the east of us by about 5 miles. After the devastation of Thursday, that's fine with me.

We are back and I am glad to be home. We got some groceries, some new beach chairs that are lighter weight, filled up the gas tank, and stopped at the bank. Then we went to our favorite oyster bar and shared a dozen oysters on the half shell, but then they gave us another six, and we split an order of linguine with clams. I can still taste garlic. The rain has stopped and the sun is out. We got the remnants of Bill last night.

The storm coming across right now is the remains of Tropical Storm Bill. Thursday's storm was a just a powerful popup cell from a really hot day. They happen all the time, it was just over us this time. I fear that the condemned houses will suffer further damage from this storm. The California owner of the house that had two trees on the roof will probably be happy, insist that his insurance company give him a whole new house. It was bad when he bought it, did nothing to it, and now will reap a windfall from the windfall.

I have eaten far too many carbs today. My grandson is going through one of those picky eating times, and pasta is one of his few foods of choice. So Pasta yesterday, pasta today. And I bought bagels because they eat them, and of course, I had one for breakfast! I love bagels. Well, I will do what I can. My grandson is a sweet little guy, but very smart and as a result, challenging to be around. And very active. He really needs to get out and let go, but it is so hot right now. Hopefully, one morning it will be cool enough and we can get him to the park.

The cookout yesterday was good, but I was not so good. I wasn't awful, but could have done better. We are in Rhode Island and will return to the Island tomorrow. Had a great time, but looking forward to getting back. Was your storm related to the remains of the hurricane. We are supposed to get bad weather tonight. Barbara how great that your daughter and grandchild are visiting. Rita hope you had a good Sunday.

The storm here was a "microburst", a very focused downward high wind. The damage is in a very small area. There are 5 houses that have been condemned within a 5 minute walk. How lucky we were!

Good morning every one! Here in Ohio it's raining and it feels less humid and the air smells fresher too! Rain should end late afternoon and then the hot humid weather is coming back?

Hope your Saturday is a good one!

The graduation was lovely. Today we are having a cook out for family and friends. Hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken on the grill, salads, fruit plate, wraps, and a carrot cake, and chocolate mousse cake. Now just hoping it won't rain. I hope your storm is not coming my way Nell. Rita we are returning home on Father's Day.

A big storm came through last night. Our house is fine, but there are trees on roofs all around me. I walked all over last night looking at it. This morning, state crews had cleared the roads so I was able to get out this morning. The devastation is terrible, but in a very narrow corridor.

I'm not one for cake, either. Jean Nidetch said in her book that you can admire a cake, cut it and serve it, then have half a grapefruit. Your stomach doesn't know it's your birthday.

Happy birthday, Nell. I always had to make my own birthday dinner, and anniversary and everyone else's birthday, Christmas, etc. Now I get to go out for dinner on my birthday. I still don't get a cake, though....

My son and his girlfriend came for dinner last night. I had made tomatillo sauce last week and put the leftover in the freezer, so I made chicken breasts with tomatillo sauce and some jalapeno cheese cornbread. It was darn good, if I say so myself. I love tomatillo sauce. Could not be easier to make and it has so much flavor.

It rained all day, and we really need it. We don't have a car wash here so it also cleaned my car. We leave tomorrow for New Jersey for DGS middle school graduation and DGD's high school graduation. Hoping to get to see the other two DGS while we are there as well. We will be back by Sunday. First I have several grueling meetings before we leave at 2:00pm. Defrosted some meatballs and sauce that was in the freezer to have with pasta tonight.

I am making a mushroom barley soup with sweet potato and lima beans.

Potlucks and buffets don't bother me, I just eat a little of one thing and never dessert. I can enjoy the view without having to eat it.

The pot luck was great. Only one person brought an appetizer and it was steamed mussels which are healthy. There was only one dessert, watermelon slices. Every thing else was salads or vegetables with flank steak. All the sides were wonderful. Not sure about tonight. I am not feeling that great.

I like potlucks, but there is always the possibility that there will be nothing I can or want to eat. I went to one of my book group meetings yesterday and ate dessert. I had lunch before I went, and sadly, I am sure I ate more of the dessert than I should have! Another day....

It turned out to be a lovely day. We are going to a pot luck tonight and the main course will be flank steak cooked on the grill. I am taking a tabouli salad with cranberries, walnuts, mint and a lemon and walnut oil dressing. I also love watermelon and make salads frequently with watermelon, feta, and mint with a light drizzle of olive oil. Amber sounds like you really cleaned your kitchen. Nell I am still waiting for hot.

Chef: I love crab. So that all sounds delicious. I also agree with not having certain things in the house. Thats why when my sister came over yesterday I gave her to full paper bags full of grocieries. It was stuff I couldn't have and things my husband can't have (he has high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and pre diabetes) so now I have a pretty health kitchen lol.

One: I love watermelon as well. The best thing about the summer is how the watermelon prices get lower and lower in price lol.

Nell: Hot days can make it feel like not doing anything. Hope you found your ambition :)


I did good myself yesterday. After my morning 1 1/2 mile walk I did my strength training, and around 7 last night I decided to walk the 1 1/2 mile round trip to dairy queen with my daughter and I got her and ice cream. It was a nice work out for me, and she loves to ride in the stroller, plus she got an icecream lol.

I can and will do it. For me, for my daughter, for my family, for God.

Hello all. Last night I made baked crab cakes with slaw made with Greek yogurt. Tonight a crab casserole with carrots and sliced tomatoes. It was a lovely day. Amber I get cravings all the time, and I try not to keep things I crave at home. Then I can go to plan B which is usually fruit or nuts.

Fruits do work great I've noticed when I have a sweet tooth. If its super powerful sweet tooth I go for the watermelon works great. I've also noticed that I tend to resist temptation best on days I workout. I try to workout everyday, but can't always do that. The days I don't are the hardest. They are the days I tend to go over my calories or even binge.

I can and will do it. For me, for my daughter, for my family, for God.

I have always needed something later in the evening, but I never eat junk food. Lately I have been having an apple. It is sweet enough to satisfy that part of the craving, and the extra fiber is good for me.

I am trying really hard not to eat past 7pm here. Sometimes I make and sometimes I don't, but I'll just keep on trying. :)

It rained here all day long yesterday, and I did nothing. No workouts, no cleaning, nothing. Woke up today so tired and I thought it might be another day just like yesterday, but then I said nope not going to happen. Got up and walked a mile and a half. Felt wonderful. Weather was nice. Sun was shining and gave me the energy I needed to jump start my day. Going to do strength training soon then get my house clean. Then I get my neice and nephew so going to take them outside to play till there mom picks them up. (about an hour) Then I think ill do an SP workout video, and after supper taking my daughter and walking to the park. After a rainy day I just want a lot of outside time. :)

I can and will do it. For me, for my daughter, for my family, for God.

I have had a rule for many many years that I do not eat after dinner. I brush and floss right after dinner, before I even clean the kitchen, and I am done until breakfast. Very rarely I'll wake up hungry in the middle of the night, then look at the clock to see how long until I can eat breakfast. And I know that 3 cups of coffee before breakfast will take the edge off the hunger. It's my own rule, not something I read anywhere, and it has held me in good stead for a long time. I may not have the fleeting satisfaction of Doritos while watching TV at night, but I don't have to go through the self recrimination of overeating. I'll take it.

It takes months to break a habit, and about 30 seconds to get it back again. That's why there are certain foods I don't eat EVER, even if they can mathematically fit into a plan. I don't want to have to endure those months again.

Nell: It is very hard. I have a meal plan. I plan every morning for lunch, dinner, snacks, and the next mornings breakfast, but old habits die hard. Which I think is why we all got our self in this situation in the first place. Bad Habits. lol. I know that if I can find it in myself somewhere to just say NO when a bad habit wants to creep itself up on me and say no long enough I can break it, but boy is it hard at first lol.

Amber, resisting food when you want it is THE hardest challenge to weight loss. I keep a careful meal plan, and when I get itchy I look at my plan. I'll know exactly what I'll be eating and when I'll be eating it. For me, that's why cooking makes sticking to a plan easier. There is that preparation time that sort of makes the next meal feel closer.

Woke up and looks like rain. Ugh. Last night around 8pm I felt "hungry" but I knew it was real hunger. I was still so close to eating that I was already browsing the kitchen for something. I found a can of beef stew. One of those high calorie, fat, and sodium things. But I didnt do it. I grab a stick of gum and heated up some water for tea, and almost the moment I started chewing I didn't want that diet ruining can of food anymore. Resisting food when I want it is one of the hardest challenges I face on my way to my goals. So this is something for me to be proud of.


One: I don't normally use Green Peppers when I cook either, but my husband likes it. So I like you I have been using them more often.

Good morning! Well looks like here in Ohio it's going to be hot and humid...so hope your day is cool!


I usually do not use green peppers in my recipes but this year I noticed I am using them more and more? Maybe my taste buds are changing? I use garlic,onions and soy sauce in most of the recipes I make? I like to make rice but it seems I have not got that recipe down yet? I did make it one time using a name product called Glory chicken broth and it was so good but the stores around here do not stock it and I have tried a number of other chicken broth but still do not like the taste?

I made a vegetarian curry tonight, and boy was it hot!! My hubby loved it. He says food is better when you sweat. It was a WW recipe that said to soak coconut shreds in hot water, then strain out the coconut and use the water. I just used coconut cream. More calories, but a LOT more flavor!!

It was absolutely beautiful day. When I came home DHand I sat outside on our deck and had a glass of wine. It was lovely. The chicken and cous cous salad recipes were great. Will definitely. Make them again. Rita your pork chop recipe sounds. Really interesting. I use Pinterest a lot for recipes. Amber you did great. Tonight penne a la vodka with a watermelon salad.

I haven't been on much the last few days. Just been on long enough to pretty much track my food and workouts, but thats is the most important daily task on here in my opinion. Going to try to be on more though cause I find the other tools of sparkpeople (expecially the forums and friends) provide unequal support. :)

Today was my weigh in and I lost 4.6lbs. Whoohooo!! Makes me very happy and gives me the inspiration I need to keep it going. :)

I can and will do it. For me, for my daughter, for my family, for God.

Chefsophie the name of the crockpot recipe is called: cheesy pasta and beef casserole. I got it off Pinterest . Trying another one later in the week maybe? Called crockpot pork chop with creamy herb sauce.

Hope everyone has a good Wednesday?

You wear a Fitbit on your wrist, so I guess it can't sense feet hitting the pavement. But you gave me an idea: I'll try putting the Fitbit in the large band that came with it and see if I can tolerate it on my ankle. It may measure differently. I have read that it is useless for people on walkers, even though they may walk many steps, because their hands are on the walker.

Nell that makes no sense. A step is a step regardless of what your arm does.

Today is still in the mid 80s, but not too humid and a light breeze, very nice. I went to the outlet mall and walked all over for about 2 hours, but my Fitbit barely showed 2000 steps. It doesn't read unless I am swinging my arm when I walk, which I never do when holding my pocketbook straps or shopping bags. Or pushing a cart. It was an $80 mistake.

It was finally warm today. No sweater, no fleece and a cotton shirt. Tomorrow it is supposed to get to 70. It is foggy, but not much wind. I am trying a new chicken recipe tonight. It's Greek Chicken with a yogurt marinade. I am serving it with a cous cous cucumber and feta cheese salad. Hope everyone has a great day.

Yesterday was hot but it has been dreary and threatening to rain all day today. We ended up getting about three drops....

I'm off to the Outlet Mall today. Lots of walking, and the heat moves back in today after a very cool week last week.

Good morning every one! I am not a camper and I hate bugs of any kind and the ground is to hard for this old body?
Chef Sophie I forgot the recipe but will get it and let u know but it uses hamburger and a few other spices and ingredients and it was a hit here! But it was not a healthy menu but all so good!

Heather, I used to camp, too, but, like Sophie, I like my comforts now. As I've gotten older, the ground has become harder and farther away.

It started out lovely today, and ended up raining. I had meetings all morning,and played catch up all afternoon. DH left for the mainland today to check on our condo, and will return tomorrow so I defrosted some leftover sausage and peppers for dinner and lunch tomorrow. Rita what was the the slow cooker recipe? Nell I just want some warm weather so I can walk at night. Heather I used to camp, but learned I liked showers and dry rooms so I have not done it so much in recent years. I find that age makes comfort more important. Sorry you got wet, another reason that I changed to day hikes.

So got back from camping yesterday. Had a fun trip except we got rained on yesterday morning and I got soaked. After that I was feeling pretty uncomfortable and miserable. I didn't eat well at all and I ate too much. I got in workouts but not as much as I'd like.

I can and will do it. For me, for my daughter, for my family, for God.
