Janice congratulations on losing another pound I think I found it on my byehind.

Strange thing found its way into my grocery basket a big giant bag of pumpkin seeds. I had enough of them to have the scale go up again the rest are going to the squirrels I hope they like them as much as I did.
My cookie baking went well I did them on the day that I had stocked up on fruits and vegetables. Just have to avoid things like pumpkin seeds.

Miller I hope your daughter can soon get her medications in order. I hope that the holidays do not bother her. Congratulations on getting a gift card to the HoneyBaked Ham store. I sure love honey baked ham.

Good Morning TEAM!!!

Our visit to Racetrack was nice, but we left early and went over to our Mall to do more walking.

Sparkling......Not so sure about the cookies I made being healthy.....They do have some Sugar/Butter in them. But no Flour!!! Mostly Oatmeal/peanut butter.

Janice........We will be coming back by 28th of Dec. And Leesburg is about 46 miles from Orange City. Guess we will have to wait for another time!!

Miller........Congrats to you on your BP and losing the weight!!! Your dinner sounds Delish!!!

Sheila........Your cookies sounds pretty good!!!

Kathryn......How was your Saturday?

Hope everyone Enjoys their Day......Going to be going to my sister's Church today. They have a beautiful service and then a meal & cookie exchange afterwards. I always go with her every year.

SHEILA, thanks... I hope the ham will be good. *Good job getting your crown done! I had to stop eating popcorn because I kept having to get crowns and root canals. Not eating popcorn has helped my teeth a lot. *Your cookie recipe sounds good and healthy!!!
emoticon

SPARKLING, what a pretty sweater!!! *So sorry you and your DH are still missing your MIL, but I understand, as it hasn't been that long. Hugs to you both!!! *Your date night sounded cozy and wonderful!!! *Lovely picture of Santa and the dear animals!!!
emoticon emoticon

JANICE (IN), Chex Mix is so yummy - I love it!!! emoticon

KATHRYN, hope you and your DH are well. emoticon


I shopped a bit today and the shopping center was really packed with shoppers - there were traffic jams everywhere. Came home and did a bit of housework, then finished my latest book - it was good. We had grilled salmon fillets for dinner tonight, along with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and a baked potato. It was very tasty.

Hope tomorrow is a happy day for all. Hugs!!! emoticon

Have fun at races!
Question when you make things like check mix or holiday cookie, do you make it a healthy version? Just wondering.... I don't make things for people I don't eat. So making things more to MY requirements help me to keep my lifestyle AND give, too. We are still missing MIL so much, I'm not doing a lot this year for Christmas, except loving everyone. We had date night last night, put a fire in fire place, watched our favorite Big Bang Theory & had a health Panda Express. (I still over ate a little bit, back off today).

Hi, Beautys! In-Joy your holidays! I love being your SP friend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon (If we are not SP friends, please friend me & I will back to you!)

Today I made a batch of Chex Mix. When it was cool, I bagged up half and took it to my sister"s house. That way I am not tempted to eat all of it.

Janice(FL), I start my trip to Fl on Dec 26. The two Janices will be on the move at the same time.

Welcome, GLINDA!!! So great to have you here!!! Have fun on your first workout!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

JANICE, I hope your primary doc appointment goes well. I see my primary doc today, too, for a blood pressure check-up. *Nice you have a newly remodeled Publix - hope you find some good buys! *Thanks for asking about my MILís appointment and my daughter. MIL has to go back in a week if the swelling in her feet doesnít go down, but otherwise sheís okay. DD is still about the same - trying to get her depression and anxiety meds right. *Weíre having ham for Christmas dinner - I have a $50 gift card to the HoneyBaked Ham store!!!

SHEILA, great job on cleaning up that ice - sounds like a good workout, too!!! emoticon

KATHRYN, good idea about the cookies!!! emoticon

JANICE (IN), hope youíre managing in all that snow!! emoticon

SPARKLING, yes, such a busy time of year!!! emoticon


I see my doctor today and then plan to shop at Target for last minute stocking stuffers. My online gift orders didnít come yet, but some may arrive today. Looking forward to having all my gifts arrive and getting them wrapped and under the tree. Getting the decorations up was a lot of work, but we are really enjoying them - so festive!!

Hope everyone has a happy day!!! Hugs to all!!! emoticon

Went to doctor today I have gained 3 pounds since I saw her last. She said no more package cookies make home made you are less likely to get a whole package while baking them and she is right. I keep busy and only eat about one or two at a time maybe eating a total of six not 26. I use to make the dough freeze it and make 8 at a time for hubby and me in the toaster oven.

High light of the day was walking to the laundromat. I read a book there about 1001 diet tips, most of them I knew. Caretaker saying today from 9-8. I am making us all some vegetable/chicken soup. Hubby's will be served in his new mug.

Sorry I've been gone so long! Still catching up since NOVEMBER's trip to MY Mom!

To all of our Spark People family: (Part of my blog, today)

ďMY WISHĒ

May your hopes be as high, as high
as the skyís highest star!

May your Star be as bright,
as bright as your smile!

May your smile be as warm,
as warm as your place in the sun!

May your place in the sun,
bring you peace!

May the peace in your heart,
give you joy in your heart!

May your heart know the meaning of love.

May the love you will know,
when you know your in love,
be forever, and ever as true,
as the love, I have given to you!

Indiana Janice so sorry you are getting such snow. We do not have snow like that here in the valley. It is in the 30's at night and in the 60's by afternoon.

I rode the lite rail train to an other town to go to the thrift store. I wanted to get black pants. I found none that fit me. Today I went to the thrift store two block away and found a pair that fit great emoticon
Yesterday what I bought was a soup mug for hubby that said "CHicken soup for the soul" I served his dinner chicken noddle soup in it and he said it kept the soup warm longer than a bowl, just right for some one who eats slow like him.

We are getting the snow storm. There is a Toll Road highway in the background. Earlier I could not see the fence in my backyard.

Lake effect snow is so unpredictable. One minute, lightly falling and then the next, you canít see 20 feet in front of you. The sun was shiny 10 minutes ago.

KATHRYN, having a VA caretaker on the weekends sounds great. Hope you had fun thrift shopping.

JANICE, looks like yíall had fun mall walking! That slide is incredible!!

JANICE (IN), thatís very interesting about the ďlake effect snow.Ē I never knew about that. Hope you donít get too much - 10 to 12 inches is a lot!!!

SHEILA, hope you're having a good day. Snow shoveling all done?



I have to go by MILís doctor today to pick up her prescriptions, then by the pharmacy. Then make a run to the grocery store and also go to Michaelís for some artificial flowers. Busy day in a busy week. At least I get to stay home tomorrow, which is great because the high temperature will only be in the 30ís. Brr!!!

Stay warm everybody!!! Hugs to all!!! emoticon

Miller......I bet your sweet n sour chicken was good! Never tried it in the slowcooker. I did make the sweet n sour pork for us in the skillet......but Lee doesn't like all those veggies added or the pineapple!!! So it is really just the pork with the sauce!!!!

Kathryn......What did you find yesterday at thrift? I didn't make it to Goodwill yesterday.

Hope everyone is staying warm today.......Our temps went to 50 degree's this morning! emoticon

After climbing the stairs to the top of the slide, I'm not sure I would have the courage to go down.

We are supposed to get lake effect snow on Tuesday and Wednesday. We might get between 10 to 12 inches of that white stuff. I live near Lake Michigan and when a snow storm goes over a body of water, it picks up more moisture and produces lake effect snow. Never know how much and who will get the snow.

Have a good week everyone!!

This weekend had a VA caretaker hubby is to have a caretaker for the weekends from now on. This gives me the chance to get out on the weekends I'm the type of person who just cannot sit at home all day. I'm used to being able to just get out and take a walk around the neighborhood I did that this weekend. I also went to the laundromat as our dryers are not working here you have to run the clothes twice so that cost double and I can't afford that. I saved $4 in doing just 2 loads. And as I was in the neighborhood I went to the Salvation Army Thrift Shop and the SPCA Thrift Shop.

Hi to all!!!

JANICE, the crock pot recipe was for sweet and sour chicken. Hubby loved it, though I thought it needed a thicker sauce. *Sounds like winter has arrived in Florida, too, with temps in the 50ís!

SHEILA, I hope the Biotin vitamin works well for you! *You're right - the crock pot chicken was tender and juicy!


We had snow ďshowersĒ yesterday afternoon, but no accumulation. It was fun to watch it fall, as it was really pretty. Itís going to be cold all week, with a high on Wednesday of only 38 degrees!!! I have 3 doctor appointments to go to this week - two for me and one for my MIL. Busy week!!

I need to mail my Christmas cards this week - they're addressed and ready to go, except for the stamps. Was going to go by the post office for Christmas stamps, but will probably just use the flag stamps I already have.

Hope the week ahead is a good one for all!!! emoticon

Janice it is showing here in NH ! Lower part of NH where I am is getting 3-6 inches! Our mountains will get just a trace! That is a bummer for them they can't run the ski resorts unless they make snow!!! But I bet that cost a ton of cash!!!

Miller Chicken in a crock pot? I was going to try it but have not yet! Bet it is juicy goodness!!!!

Flasun. The Almond nog was $3.49 it is yummy! Not too sweet ! 50's sound great ! Lol! My feet were frozen after shoveling!!! I don't have those 97 pounds to keep me warm, I'm truly not tolerating these chilly temps! But, I don't want those pounds back!!!! Lol.

Have a great rest of the weekend!!! emoticon

I bought some parts for my old snowblower. Last week my son asked if he could have it. Since I donít need it anymore I gave it to him. I told him that I have not started in 5 or 6 years and he would have to work on it. Last weekend while I was down there I gave it to him. He had it started in 5 minutes. He is very mechanical inclined. If he canít fix it, it is broke. I bought it in 1971or 1972. They still have parts for that thing.



Winter sucks!

emoticon Miller, Sheila & Kathryn!! My lunch was DELISH yesterday!! I had the Fish & Chips lunch meal and it was WAY too much for a serving. Gave most of my huge fries to my friend and left the rest. Two pieces of nicely fried cod fish was very good!!! My friend gave me my early Christmas gift since she is leaving tomorrow till after the new year. I got a set of BEAUTIFUL Flamingo towels!!! Also a silver bracelet.

We went to our Hollywood Beach last night for our walking. Got at least 4 miles of walking done yesterday. Had a lot of fun and dancing also!!!

Hope everyone enjoys their day!!! I might be resting up today......only put in one load of towels.

Sheila I know what you mean about foot hurting and you just keep going, we are Warriors



I don't have any problems with the SparkPeople app it seems to work very good for me

Janice I had a little problem with my apartment manager yesterday she wasn't in the office like she said she would be she was at the doctor's office she called the owner and the owner met me so that I could show her the video of how lousy the workmen had put up towel rack that was coming down and was now coming down again after less than a month.
She was upset so she had new workers come out and put a new one up today it turned out to be a good idea and looks great

Thanks Miller, I never ever log off completely. I do shut off my phone every night...today it let me log everything almost as if it never gave me issues...

Did you see my post of cool egg nog, check it out on my page, super yummy....

Groceries cost $145.00 today with just chicken for meat. It is expensive to eat healthy...my strawberries $3.99 each...pkg.

I hope everyone had a great day....

I was busy all day, my foot was very mad at me but I kept on moving!!

Tried to start my lawn mower today, no way, too cold. Guess the gas will have to stay in it til spring...did rake leaves..Got out my winter stuff...shovel, snow scraper, ECT because Sat nite to Sun 2-5 inches...yuck...and more Tues. Gee guess winter is here!!! emoticon

emoticon Hi to all!!!

SHEILA, you might try turning your phone all the way off and then turning it back on again. Also logging completely out of Spark and logging back in. These ideas might not help - I don't know much about the app. Hope it starts working better!!

JANICE, enjoy your lunch with your friend - sounds like fun!!!

JANICE (IN) Brr - 14 is just too cold - so is 34!!! We've been having low's in the 30's at night, but it warms up to the high forties or low 50's in the daytime. I think you're smart to make sure you don't break anything!!!


The weather isn't good today - rainy - so will probably stay in and decorate the tree more, do some housework and an exercise video and do a little cooking.

Hope everyone has an awesome day!!! emoticon

June enjoy your shopping, hope it is not to cold

Janice well done on your shopping. Our caretaker goes to the Goodwill near here most every day for her break. We have a Boutique Goodwill a block away. She is new to going back to church and is buying clothes. She bought the cutest tan high heel pumps reminded me of heels I wore at her age. I surge can't wesri them now. Do you were heels when you go dancing?

Who all wears high heels?

I wear tennis shoes most all the time.

I love the exercise videos on my Spark People app. i did a 20 minute one today. I also sm taking a long afternoon walk to see my apartment manager. I have a complaint about how a towel rack was put back up.

Stew & Chili! I'm getting hungry! Glad the fridge works again! Woo Hoo!

I'm sprucing up some of my marionettes for my Christmas show on Saturday. Taking more time than I want but I DO what everyone camera ready. It's only a 30 minute show, but set up will take several hours, with tree & cookie table &&&&

Here are a few photos:

This is POPO my Mom's first marionette, he was made in 1958! I keep him updated & camera ready!

This is Jack In Box, my Fairy God Mother made him!

Here he is Popped up!

Friends!

I think I will have chili for lunch. it is half turkey and half beef. it is homemade and in the freezer in small portion so it is easy to get out and reheat.

Hope everyone has a good day!!

Sheila I am so sorry to hear that your hair is falling out I'm quite sure you have talked to your doctor about this, have you tried talking to a nutritionist? My hair used to break a lot I would find great big clumps of it in my hands while cream rinseing my hair. Since taking vitamins I no longer have this problem.
You have done really well at losing weight 97 lb is a lot. Size 12 is a good size to be be happy. I have extra skin from losing the 50 lb that I know I will probably have for the rest of my life I can't afford a tummy tuck. If I win the lottery I'm getting one.Lol.

Janice congratulations on Lee fixing the refrigerator. Your dinner of chicken alfredo sounds very good. I was going to make chicken stir fry tonight but I'm going to make chicken alfredo thanks for inspiring me.

Miller enjoy your beef stew I used to love making it it always smells so good. We no longer eat beef. I make chicken stew every now and then in the Crock-Pot.

I went to the diabetic class today and we watched the movie hungry for change which was about healthy living healthy eating and how to avoid being tricked by the food industry. I got a lot from it but what really stuck in my mind was that diets don't work they make you gain weight also Diet Coke makes you gain weight. in fact using any kind of fake sugars except stevia makes you gain weight. I did not lose 50 lb by going on a diet I lost it by changing bad habits. After hubby fail I started those bad habits again and have put on a little bit of weight. I am not waiting for New Year's resolutions to stop these bad habits I'm stopping now.

GOOD MORNING TEAM!!!

Can't believe hubby and I woke up at 2am!!!! He was thinking about getting the refrig repaired.
I just couldn't stay in bed any longer so we both got up.

Will be so happy if these parts fix this refrigerator. It is 11 yrs old and hoping it does last us another 10!

Miller......sorry to hear about your cataracts. My last eye visit they let me know I'm also going to have them. So far I guess not so bad. Hope your doctor Appt goes well for you today!!! Pot of Beef stew sounds delish!!! We have left over chicken ......and I'll add some Alfredo sauce and make egg noodles with it for our dinner.

Janice.......So HAPPY to hear your son and his family will be there with you on Christmas!!
Lee has been also watching YouTube video's to repair the Refrig. Good Luck with your repair of your washer!!! Also nice that Todd will help you look for new carpet!!!

Sparkling.......So GREAT you get to sell your items. How did the sales go for you?? Hope you did well!! Also hope you had fun with the Santa's!!! Such a wonderful cause to get together and so many People!!!!

Kathryn........Yesterday at Publix they had my Taco Boat Dinner kits BOGO.....so of course I had to pick up more!!! They are delish and just 2 of them fill me up. Glad you enjoyed the Jimboy's tacos!!!

Sheila........ emoticon on losing the 97 pounds!!! I would be totally okay with staying at a size 12 !!! YOU have done emoticon !!!! I know about the "Hair fall out"....having Chemo/radiation 6 yrs ago.......I became a bald head!!! Maybe there is some type of shampoo you can purchase that might help make it stronger so doesn't keep falling out??? You can always purchase yourself a wig !!! They make some pretty good ones now.

Not sure what my plans will be for today. I do have a pile of ironing to get to. emoticon

Hope everyone enjoys their DAY!!!!

I have been frustrated that I have not really lost any weight since july! I found out today my body is probably at it 's set point! My weight I lost 97 pounds has left behind some un- pretty skin...that probably weighs at least 30 pounds!!!! So that means I Would Be 150 Minus That Skin And That Is Where My Doctor Said She Thought Would Be Good!!!! So I Am Totally Okay Being A Size 12 Jean And Large Top!! It Was 3 X top 28 Pant Plus Size!! I Just Wish My Hair Would Stop Falling Out! Been Doing That For Several Weeks... I Think It Was Due To Weight Loss And Metformin!!!! But, gee when is it going to just stop????lol????b4 there is none left to fall out!!!

Hi! Everyone! Sounds like things are going ok, with our team! YES! Youtube is a God send, right?
I'm selling off some of my Disney collection. Spice set from 1995, snow globes, leather coat, things that are delicate & won't ship easily. I am SO lucky she is helping us! We have a ton of things to 'release'!


Yes! The Santa 5K is always fun! I'm usually at the front with the spark people head dress on. & a marionette. Some people have found me, LOL. 10,000 this year, I think we made the Ginnis world record again! So wonderful to do this for charity. I joined them because of the encouragement from the book, THE SPARK. emoticon That book changed my life!

I didn't feel well yesterday, but today has been better. I spent the afternoon at the eye doctorís. The vision in my left eye has been blurry. Turns out I have cataracts in both eyes. Will probably have surgery on the left one after Christmas.

We got up the Christmas tree - donít have ornaments on it yet, but the lights look really pretty. emoticon

I have another doctor appointment tomorrow, but then will come home and make a pot of beef stew.

Hope everyone has a good evening and a great day tomorrow! emoticon

Hugs to all, emoticon

My son showed me how to save a video from YouTube. I have to repair my washer when I get to Florida. The pump went out. He helped me order the part and it looks like the one in the video. YouTube is a great help. Should take me less than 15 minutes to repair it once I start.

Todd also helped me look for new carpet. The carpet in my vintage trailer is over 20 years old and has only been cleaned once that I know of. And I did that. The other owner was a slob. I call my trailer ďvintageĒ because it is a 1965 model and sounds better than ď oldĒ. LOL

I was at my sonís over the weekend. Just found out that they are coming up here Christmas Day. Todd doesnít have to work and neither does Amanda. I am still packing up and going to his house the day after Christmas.

I am so ready to go to warmer climate. No snow yet, but maybe tonight.

I have some yard work to do today, then maybe I will pull out some decorations later. I donít do much, but I will need to get out the tree since Todd and family will be here for Christmas. I am ready.

Good Morning TEAM!!!!

Sorry I missed posting yesterday......was very tired and rested up most of the day.

Sheila......Our one part should come for refrig today. So far after my hubby defrosted the coils in it ....everything is getting cold again and its working. BUT if it does freeze up again and we are stuck he now has the part to fix it. The Racetrack has been there for YEARS....it is also a nice Shopping/Restaurants all thru it and a huge Christmas Tree they put up. It was just the "Grand Opening" of the Races........Since they do close part of the year for racing.

Miller......I also made us Taco's on Saturday......they have these cute little taco boats now that you fill........so Good!!! We also went to Target on Saturday. Had to get a few groceries. Hoping Lee will put our Startracker out today. We saw it working in the house and it is just lovely!!! I'm sure it will be beautiful on the house. Had lots of fun at Racetrack but no wins!!!

Kathryn.......How was your taco's from Jimboy's?? I'm picking us up the whole chicken today to bake in the oven.

Sparkling.......LOVED your beautiful pictures!! What an amazing thing they do there!!! So many SANTA'S!! Also LOVE your puppet "Little Red"........so Adorable!!!! What type of things were you selling?? Nice you give your friend 10% of what you sell.

Going to shop at TJ Maxx today and then groceries at Publix. Hope everyone has a Wonderful..........POSITIVE Day!!!! emoticon

Nice quiet restful day today just hubby and me. I did the laundry and my hubby and I watched movies on TV. We had a healthy dinner of baked chicken.
Earlier in the day I did an exercise video from the SparkPeople app on my smartphone. I enjoyed it a lot
