emoticon Elizabeth you are doing great! You are doing great in the pool and on your steps! emoticon Hopefully you will get some cooler weather coming your way. emoticon

We are on the weather rollercoaster right now our humidity is low right now but it's going to go up before our next front in a couple of days. Work is ok, we have some kids doing really stupid things right now, like getting drunk at school and then they are shocked that the get in so much trouble and that they got caught.

Good Morning. emoticon Have no idea what it is like outside because it is dark, lol. Went to bed much too early last night so awake much too early.

Did 40 minutes in the pool yesterday, and most of that was swimming laps and then treading water thrown in. Really happy. emoticon And consistently getting over 11,000 steps a day, mostly emoticon The lot looks much better, thanks Rhonda but really need to scrub the lanai.

I would not mind some days like you're getting. We are in the low eighties and the humidity is building.

Down a wee fraction of a pound today but down is down emoticon

Good Morning Elizabeth the front will drop our highs into the 60's for a few days, which is good because it was in the 80's yesterday. They are talking about a couple days in the upper 40's late next week when a stronger front comes in. emoticon

Good Morning Elizabeth emoticon good thing you enjoy walking and swimming, bummer about no dance classes this season.

Yes, all my decorating is done, I tend to go for quick and easy. I did put multi colored lights in my fireplace and I like the look. I might pick up a couple of sets of lights and change them out after Christmas. I very rarely use it, one it doesn't get that cold here and I hate cleaning it. emoticon emoticon

Good for you to relax. Are all your decorations up?

Unfortunately there are no dance classes here anymore. I don't think we would have tried the ball room dance again but I would have joined the Line Dancing class again. Thus far I have not looked at any classes, concentrating on walking and the swimming.

You inspire me Rhonda. Yesterday I stuck to only the proper foods. So pleased I was able to do it. Then today Al bought me a emoticon I could not wait to my usual weigh-in time and, if the scale agrees with the one at home I am down 4 more pounds. Happy Dance emoticon

Went to a movie last night and very happy with how I did. Al bought a giant bag of buttered popcorn and I did not eat even one kernel.

emoticon Good Morning

I am loving the weather here, although a few are complaining I brought the cold with me emoticon
My body is really responding well to the weight drop and now to the increased activity so a real reinforcement of what I am doing. I also got in about a half hour in the pool yesterday, only about 10 minutes of it actually emoticon but was at least being active the rest of the time. I was chuckling to myself that my bathing suit was now saggy. When it gets really bad time for a new one for sure. And a friend commented she thought I had lost weight as she could see it in my legs! My legs? I always think of myself as a candle when I lose weight, I melt from the top down so that was a bit of a shock.

I did not know you had this week off Rhonda. Glad you will get a chance to recharge the batteries,

emoticon emoticon Hello from Florida.

Very smooth drive, smoothest ever and really glad I did it in 4 rather than 3 days although I was anxious to get it over with by the time the 3rd day was over. Ruairi is an easy passenger, as the place he loves best in the world is a car. And, already doing more walking here as he insists on his walks.

And I arrived to Al with a bottle of champagne. I did have some, then ended up eating some more crap however my body is really pissed off with me today so will return to healthy eating. Al could not believe the weight I had lost lol.

Enjoying a lazy Sunday Rhonda? Desi?

emoticon Good Morning friends.

Sounds like both of you are getting great warm weather. Here it has decidedly got the chill in the air but yesterday was beautiful. Yes Rhonda, still packing. Tomorrow, while Ruairi is at the groomer is when everything is put into the car and then, if something is forgotten it is forgotten.

Katrina is doing very well Desi, thank you for asking. She has returned home from her Dad's and today is her first day back at work. She still feels tired but that is passing. The other day she stepped on her scale and is down almost 34 pounds from her highest weight, about 10 of that since the surgery. Her attitude is extremely positive. So it seems all my fears were for naught.

A few shopping stops in town today, a little cleaning and preparing today.

I hope all is quiet today Rhonda.

Yesterday was the traditional blustery day here. Temperatures about 5 above freezing but the wind made it feel very otherwise. I had a lovely lunch with my friend Claudia yesterday. New restaurant, only open 1.5 weeks so there were some kinks being worked out regarding the service. Food was good. The soup of the day was perfect for me. It was almost consomme but with pureed mushrooms and a light flavour. The chef's salad we 99% arugula with some Parmesan shavings and tomato chips. Ladies, I know you are both into dehydrating and if you can figure out how to do tomatoes without ruining the dehydrator, these were good. Of course I did the dressing on the side and barely touched it. So I felt very virtuous lol.

I guess I am lucky Rhonda in that we don't exchange gifts with anyone anymore. The grand-niece is the only one for a gift and we send a cheque to her Mom for that. So my only shopping actually, is for Al and he is easy-a bottle of scotch does nicely. But I sure understand why you start now Rhonda, I hate crowds with a passion.

Have to start a little bit of the packing today.

Enjoy decorating Rhonda. Your sister must love emoticon to start so early.

Elizabeth I think you will have a safe trip down. Most of the demonstrations are happening at night, your police training will kick in and you will spot anything crazy and you will steer clear.

I like to get a head start plus I dislike shopping in large crowds of people. I needed to do something pleasant. Speaking of early I'm going over to my sister's house today to help her decorate one of her emoticon emoticon . I'm doing this to make her happy. emoticon

Just saw a video where a person was ripped from a car and beaten because the people thought he voted for Trump. Hopefully a Canadian plate will prevent that.

Christmas Shopping? Wow you are good. I have written cards for those in Canada and overseas which I will mail before I go-people will get very early cards lol. Will do the ones for our friends in the US after I get down there.

My car got in yesterday and had 4 new tires put on, after being 'tuned up' Wednesday so I am all set for my drive to Florida. Now have to get those last few things I need and clean the house and all set.

Looking forward to the weekend ladies?

emoticon Good Morning.

Ah like when I am in Florida and we talk of a cool front dropping us into the seventies. It was like when I was in southern England and they would have arctic cold warnings when the temperature dipped to about 30F. But i certainly pay attention to humidity as that just lays me out flat. I am sure you are looking forward to a dryer weekend.

The car? That has never made me hungry, interesting that it does you. Although thinking about it I may the weird one as my sister and sister-in-law always have snacks in the car. When Al and I travel it is hard as there are stops at fast food places for lunch and dinner. When I travel by myself I usually pack my meals and lots of water. That way I only stop long enough to fill the car with gas, use the facilities and, if Ruariri is with me let him use them.

For the trip South I will have Ensure for breakfasts and lunch. An apple for later in the afternoon and then for dinner I will have the some chicken legs I baked for the purpose and veggies I can eat raw, like carrots or broccoli or grape tomatoes. That is what i did last time and it worked great. I can always grab a yogurt from the breakfast bar in the hotels too.

I am sticking to the plan but now my body is definitely in collusion with the scale lol. I know I should only get on the emoticon once a week but it was so much fun seeing it drop every day.

Have a Happy Thursday.

Elizabeth you are right it is easier to stay on plan when you are home and not out of your routine and travel can really make sticking to plan more challenging. I don't know about you but there is something about riding in a car for hours or several days that just makes me want to eat. emoticon

I went to Weight Watchers last in the '80's but I understand they have changed enormously. But I think you are right Rhonda. It is so much easier to stick to an eating plan when home and I could use the support in Party City Florida. Actually, the eating plan I follow to lose weight is so so similar to what the WW plan was in the '80's.

Desi-if you are working that hard with pickleball you are doing an enormous amount to help yourself towards better health. It helped Al so much with his blood sugar and weight. And it was fun. If my knees and back had liked it more I would still be playing

Elizabeth it wouldn't hurt to check out the weight watchers group for some extra support if you are interested, when it gets going. I know several people that have used them for support without following their program. I'm glad Katrina is seeing results and continues to recover.

Desi you are taking teaching pickle ball seriously. emoticon

All I can say this morning is emoticon I wish I was still asleep. emoticon emoticon

emoticon emoticon Good Morning Rhonda

Yes, feeling happy. My next short term goal won't be met before my trip south, could be there by the time I arrive in Naples though. Apparently we are getting a weight watcher program into our RV resort from January and I am toying with the idea of joining for the 2 full months I will be there while they are, just for the added support.

Today will be a very interesting day in your neck of the woods. My only concern is the calls for violence I have heard if the election goes a certain way. i am glad you will be home falling asleep when the results are in.

Did some 'have to do' errands yesterday and soon realized I was still battling the cold so did not get into the garden. So today I put everything else aside until I do the gardening as it is supposed ot be the very best day before I leave.

Oh, and Katrina has lost 6 pounds since her surgery. She says she is feeling good but very very tired which i told her was only natural following surgery, much less surgery and a restricted diet. Overall she has lost very close to 30 pounds so making a very good start to regaining her health.

Happy Tuesday.

Cheers Elizabeth

emoticon emoticon emoticon Good Morning. Can you tell how I am feeling? emoticon emoticon Time to set a new goal. So, down, please, another 5 pounds. Yes Rhonda, you are right, I learned from Spark People, back when I started this, I should make smaller more achievable goals but just never could take my eye off that ultimate one. So, with age comes wisdom? emoticon

Yes, feeling better thank you. I did not do anything yesterday so will try a little today, maybe just the garden as it HAS to be done.

And you just expressed why i hate the time changes. They always throw me off, not to mention what they do to Ruairi. Hopefully some emoticon emoticon and you will feel brighter. Hope this week is easier on you.

Good Morning Elizabeth emoticon I think setting smaller goals is smart. I know you are glad that your coughing is getting better that can be such a drain on the body.

I woke up way to early this morning oh well it has given me extra time to ease into my Monday. emoticon emoticon

How is it going Desi?

emoticon Good Morning Rhonda.

I think you deserve a weekend of Nothing and I hope you have been enjoying it!

Yes, another good day on track. The scale is showing I am getting rid of the result of that one night of stupidity but not yet back to where I was before I self-indulged. Is that not always the way. What we don't want but do is so much easier and faster than what we DO want and DO. Still, because I set smaller goals I still think I can do it int he week and a half. If I haven't then it will be there when I get to Florida as I have the meals planned and they are with an eye on the prize.

The coughing was less last night and I hope to get on the treadmill today, emoticon , And perhaps finish up that pruning in the garden.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Cheers Elizabeth

You must really be looking forward to your weekend. Do you have plans to help you recover from a stressful week?

Slowly getting my health back and am back on track eating correctly but that stupid binge night has set me back a full pound, Still hope to make my goal before the 16, down almost 2 pounds from here though.

Splitting wood is my only must do today. Still having too much lung issues to get on the treadmill and will wait until tomorrow, when more acceptable outside temperatures to do the last of the cutting down the peonies.
