I get mine from my brother - he and his wife don't like kale and have tried a variety of recipes. Then this past week when I stopped he said "don't take all the kale, we are using 1 leaf a week to mix in with out salads". Now anyone who knows how kale grows will get a chuckle out of that one!

Just got done with first batch of tomatoes and ready to start on second on thursday - would be nice to have things come in more staggered...

Have a great Thursday - Yeah the work week is nearing the finale.

Ques Sometimes my kale will stay nice until well after the first frost and beyond. I have in years past had some last until well into December even here in Maine. Unfortunately I didn't get anything including kale planted this year, and I am missing it. I used it in several soup recipes. Wish I had a friend that has it close enough so that I could get some from them. That in the grocery stores is just not the same.

Thanks for the idea - kale will continue to be growing and even more so after the first frost which is how many weeks away hopefully.

What a change in our temps - had been 60s and yesterday jumped too 90s too crazy - very humid as well - indoors for exercising today - not sure it will even drop enough later to get out and walk.

Enjoy your Wednesday!

Hopefully that storm will not make it to the east coast. It does not sound like one that we need to have here. Hope everyone made it through it safely. Ques I make a homemade lentil stew or soup that I put a lot of kale in. I am sure you could use the frozen that way, and the soup is delicious. I put carrots and a bit of chicken sausage into it. Don't really have a recipe for it, but I know I start out by sautéing onions in a bit of olive oil. Add carrots and celery if I have it, the lentils, chicken broth and cook until lentils and vegetables are soft then add the kale and sausage. I am wishing I had some for lunch today.

What a crazy storm - hope no one was hurt and glad your elec is back on.

Was a good weekend with family and finished up this evening cooking some fresh garden tomatoes for future recipes - cooling them down to go into the freezer.

Now to come up with more creative ideas for kale - store it in the freezer but need some new uses once frozen (it is growing like crazy right now)

Have a great week - Sep almost here!

Sorry you weren't feeling well, Judith. Please take care of yourself. The picture explains how bad the wind must have been. Don't like storms like that.

Have kept busy today for the most part, but took time to watch a ball game this afternoon.
Hope everyone is having a great day.

What a beautiful day here. The humidity is gone and it is comfortably in the mid 70's. Couldn't ask for better weather to have on lawn mowing day. I am taking a short break between the large part of the lawns done with the riding mower and all the areas that have to be done with the push mower. This is my workout for today, since even the riding mower gets tagged on my Spark Activity Tracker as general exercise. There is a lot of steering and arm movement as well as all the bouncing on the seat. My lawn is by no means level and smooth. LOL

Hope everyone is having a good Friday as getting ready for a great weekend.

So happy see you back here. Ques2, I am rediscovering the satisfaction in writing up and checking off each item on a "to do" list. I seem to be accomplishing some of the things that I have needed to do, but unless it is written down it easy to ignore. I find with the internet speed here that the Spark Nutrition Tracker is too slow for me. I use a grams scale and weigh all my food and then calculate the calories in each portion with the use of a handy book that list calories per gram in many common foods. For any item like yogurt or other things with nutrition labels it is easy enough to calculate a value your each gram of that item. Yeah, I am a math nerd and always have been.

On a positive note I just received a trophy from Spark for a 50 day streak or walking at least 6,000 steps per day. most days it is more than that. Now, I am trying to 100 day streak. Eventually I would like to try for a 10,000 step per day streak, but that will be difficult with everything I have to do that doesn't add any steps at all.

Hope everyone is having a great Thursday, keep up the good work and achieve you goals, one step at a time!
Eileen

Stopping in for a quick catch up. Was offline for over a week which we didn't expect while camping. In the past, spotty but internet access still available, last week no such luck. So was a mental challenge of tallying my calories (some days better than others - hard when all those goodies are around that family prepares).
Surprised them all though, up with the sun shine and out for a morning daily walk. Sure they didn't know what to think the first day or second or .... anyway, they were game and it was a good thing as the rest of the day was pretty much spent sitting and fishing for dinner.
Had a great time and it has been good to be getting myself back on track this week with more accountability with SP nutrition tracker.

On a different note: I am a big list maker - I like the satisfaction of being able to check off the small and the bigger things on the 'to do' list. Glad that is also working for you LaPerle.

I didn't read back far, but hoping Judith that your trip to and from was smooth flying for your dads life celebration.

Have a great Thursday and not sure about the rest of the world but 50-60°s in August is a little too cool for me so looking for a little more warmth with sunshine.

Judith, your quote reminds me of the one I saw year ago which said essentially, "It's amazing what one can accomplish if they don't think they can't"--That may not be the exact quote, but close. I try to remember it at all times. My TO DO LIST is helping feel as if I am going to achieve more each day from fitness, nutrition to housework. Having written down some to the things I want to do each day keeps me focused without trying to remember everything.

Hope everyone is having a great day. It is supposed to be less humid here starting today, and that will be a blessing.

Thank you for your encouragement, Judith. I am hoping that I finally have my workout and eating under control, I need to tackle other areas of the house (including routinely doing housework). So I have decided to start writing a TO DO LIST every day. I have felt recently as if I have not accomplished very much at the end of some day. I think that being able to cross things off as I do them and then being able to look back to what was done at days end should help. Today's list is long and getting longer with things I want to do or have been putting off for awhile.

Hope everyone is having a good days. Hugs and prayers.
Eileen

Made a quick trip out of town shopping to pick up things I didn't or couldn't find on Friday.
My dog doesn't like to have me leave her home, but it is just too hot in the vehicle for her to go with me safely. These quick trips don't leave her alone too long. I have got to do my DVD workout in a few minutes, but I am motivated by the scales this morning.. They were the lowest I have seen them in a long time, so just have to post that weight. If I find that it was just a temporary low, it will make me strive harder to achieve the weight for good.

Hope everyone is meeting their goals one step at a time. Have a great day.

Mowed the lawns yesterday even though it was still hot. I did take a break between using the riding mower and the push mower so that most of what I needed to do with the push mower had quite a bit of shade. Planning was the key to make sure that I had some shady areas to do whenever I started getting overly hot. I drank plenty of water, and got the job done with no problems two hours of mowing total. I have done a walking DVD today.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Good Morning emoticon Team,

Wishing you all a Blessed Sunday and Week ahead...

Thanks for your friendship and your support.. Sorry for not getting back to Spark on Saturday as many things came up that needed my attention.

I'm still adjusting and trying to settle into my regular routine after my beloved Dad's passing, still can hardly believe he is not here with us.

Thanks all for understanding. I so appreciate your support and your valued friendship...

Let's keep Sparking on Together... emoticon emoticon

Just finished a very sweaty walking DVD using hand weights to included strength training. I opted to do the workout rather than spend a lot of time here on the computer. Have been out of town shopping today and so didn't workout in the morning as I usual do. I feel like I need extra points for still doing the workout even though it is late.

Hope everyone has a nice evening.
Eileen

It has started out rather overcast and somewhat cooler than our recent days. However, the hazy sun is starting to come out. I need to go do my workout right away, so that I won't be doing it when it gets hotter later. Today is supposed to be a little cooler, but still quite hot for this state.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

Evening Hello Team

Thanks for sharing Eileen, I have heard this before with others who live in an older home, I remember, my grandparents home was always cooler, sure could use both of these homes now with our heat wave here, you made me smile with your comment on the amount of water you are drinking...Anyway it's great you are keeping well hydrated even it makes you feel like you "slosh" when you walk... emoticon

Let's keep focused and stay on track...I encourage you to track your food and fitness and keep pressing forward 1 step at a time....

Yes, Together We CAN.... emoticon emoticon emoticon

There are advantages to my house, Judith. Since it is an old farmhouse, it stays a lot cooler than some homes. I do have air conditioners on both floors, and use the one upstairs to keep cool while I exercise and to cool things off at night. I have not run the downstairs unit other than once when the living room seemed too hot. I am drinking so much water that I think I "slosh" when I walk or during my exercises. As far as exercise I have pretty much decided that my walking DVD (which do have plenty of different moves and arm movements to tone the whole body) are going to have to be the way I go. I tried a few DVD's that had things like planks and tricep dips in them, and ended up aggravating my neuropathy. My chiropractor calmed things down, but I just don't want to go there again.

Hope everyone is having a good week. This is basket class day, so need to sign off for now.

Hugs and prayers for everyone.
Eileen

We are in a heat wave here on the east coast. I got a 15 minute walk with my dog in this morning around 6:00AM as I always walk her first thing in the morning, but it was good to get it in while it was still cool, and the sun was just coming up. I have now down a 45 minute Leslie Sansone walking video which uses hand weights for some upper body strength training during the walk. Since I could do it in an air conditioned room, it wasn't too hot regardless of the weather outside. My dog does not like heat so she goes out only when she has too, and then wants to come right back in. I guess I would feel exactly as she does if I had her long fur coat. Need to do housework and get ready for a basket class tomorrow so shouldn't spend too much time on the computer.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Judith - So glad to have you back safely from your travels.

I have been to a wedding this past weekend, and stayed overnight at my daughter's house. The wedding was held outdoors in a beautiful setting, and even though showers and possibly thundershowers were threatened, and it did sprinkle briefly just as the ceremony started, the weather did co-operate and everything went beautifully.

Hope everyone had a good weekend

Judith - As always my prayers will be with you that you travel safe and pain free (or as free as possible). May your father's celebration of life be uplifting for all who loved him. He will be with you in spirit for the rest of your life.

Ques- It sounds like you have been getting plenty of exercise and eating right. The zucchini noodles sound like a wonderful idea. I have been using zucchini recently as a pizza base--adding pizza sauce, a variety of other veggies, turkey Italian sausage and cheeses. Calorie-wise it is a whole lot better for me to indulge in this "pizza" than
the other kind.

Have a great day everyone.

Has been a busy few days of fun and enjoying the fairs that our midwest region has in full force over the summer. Lots of walking whether it was state fair or farmers markets, plus the benefit of healthy veggies that are making their way to the farm stands.

Tried a new gadget tonight on fresh zucchini - this one makes the veggie into 'spaghetti shaped noodles'. They were great with a fresh vinaigrette and looking forward to figuring out more ways to incorporate fresh veggies into my diet with or without the noodle shape.

Not sure what the rest of the world has been experiencing but despite all the rain in the past week we are still in a big deficit in the midwest of the USA. Have enjoyed the break from the really hot and muggy weather and the ability to walk in the evenings with the temps in the high 60s and the 70's. Hope the rest of you are able to do the same.
Have a great Wednesday,
Ques

Happy Monday--I am going try this week to try harder to get more things done on my To Do List. That means spending less time on the computer, but I will try to check in here daily.

I cannot believe it has been so long since I checked in here. It has been a busy time with a trip out of town for some wholesale club shopping, then had to mow the lawn the next day, and today I have been trying to catch up on laundry etc. Oh, yes, I had a friend/student here on another day to make a basket together. Time sure does fly when things don't get done unless I do them myself--and there is a lot that needs to be done.

At least being busy keeps me from thinking too much about food, and fortunately the excess weight is coming off--slowly but steadily!

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
Eileen

Thank you Judith for posting that prayer. I had read it before, but it says in such a wonderful way how I wish to pray for all my family and friends

I am still having problems with the A/C in my vehicle and am told at the garage that there is yet another part that has corroded and allows the coolant to leak out. Let's hope this is the last part needed. I have spent enough on the vehicle maintenance these last couple of months between getting what was my DH's truck ready to sell and my own vehicle. But, after spending as much as I have on the A/C it would be foolish to quit before the A/C is working properly. Okay, enough whining.

Hope everyone is having a good day.
Eileen

Afternoon Hello Team

Hope your day has been blessed and you have an emoticon week ahead... Let's Stay Focused and Keep Pushing on and we will meet our goals... emoticon

This is my Prayer for you All today... emoticon

I Said A Prayer For You Today

I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word.
I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind.
I asked Him to send treasurers of a far more lasting kind.
I asked that He'd be near you at the start of each new day.
To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way.
I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.

Can't believe it is August already. Have some things coming up this month that I want to be in the best shape possible, so will continue weighing my food and doing at least one hour a day working out. Then I have a party and a class reunion in September so need to keep my scales moving downward. I did manage to lose 3 and a half pounds starting about mid-July so I know I can do it if I make sure I weigh everything. I am not ruling out any food, but it has to be weighed before I can eat it--that keeps the portions under control for me anyway.

Hope everyone is off to a good start.
Eileen
