DH and I made turkey meatball sandwiches with provolone and marinara sauce. It was a quick and tasty sandwich. I finished the day with 1274 calories.

DH showered and left for his appointment with the therapist. WHile he was away I started thinking about some people I had served with in the Army and started searching for them on facebook. I found a few. But I also lost one. I found out a soldier I served with a Fort Bragg died of a brain aneurysm. I was and still am so sad. He was only 39 when he died. He was a healthy fire fighter with three sons.  I am just devastated. We spent lots of time together for the four years I served with him. Everyday!

I was thinking on the way to work how much worse it would be to lose a soldier in combat. I'm so sad right now, I can hardly function, so being in combat is not for this female! I would just drop my weapon and walk away. I'm not sure how male soldiers do it! No wonder they have PTSD.

So the book of FACE is not my friend today!

When I woke up at 4:30 my DH wasn't in bed, he was downstairs in the recliner, saying he had been up for the last two hours due to an upset stomach. He didn't do zumba with me though, he went back to bed.

B: frittata, iced vanilla latte

S: apple

L: chicken salad, foccacia crackers, orange

S: balanced breaks

D: I have decided to make a homemade mack and cheese with chicken and brocolli. I just want mack and cheese for some reason.

We have the girl tonight, no real plans.

Received a text from my bff in Oklahoma city asking me to perform an Irish ritual of hand tieing during their ceremony. Wow so honored to do this, watching the youtube video, I will have plenty of chances to screw this up, better start practicing now! Just more pressure along with my toast!

Have a great night! and live your life! IP

Lately i'm all up on the turkey meat also :) it's quite healthy...for the first couple times i made turkey burgers, i used chopped meat. This time, i bought the fresh meat but already in patty form...slightly more calories (like 20 lol) but i wanna see how they cook up differently from chopped...they are already thinner than i made them...and that's what the store had...good to change it up LOL...i plan to also try later adding more to the turkey meat like spices MORE and possibly onion...we shall see - but this 3rd time, i'm gonna make them plain pretty much..as i'm still experimenting with my oven! and still learning to cook the basics.

Great calories for you :-) you are doing great. First time i was dieting LONG time ago, i would use the 1200 cal-1400cal range quite a bit. I want to remind you, you will lose weight even at 1500-1700 a day so do not worry about some higher days, it's good for your metabolism. Trick your body a bit to work and burn more so that your metabolism doesn't get lazy on you.

Aww, 39. That's a very young age to lose your life, sorry about it.

oh and the fact that males in general are taught to not discuss their feelings, they probably keep it all inside...adding to the PTSD i am sure..

I hope he feels better and that your hubby tries to remain active. I'm adding cardio (around 20 min) more and more often to my days..It is a GREAT thing. I am so happy that my body is feeling better and that I am able to achieve much more than last year this time.

I'm glad you are being asked to do more at the wedding...right? it didn't happen yet, right? JUST REMEMBER - HAVE FUN! this is "Happy Times!"

Cancelled all vacation plans and when DH got home he showed me what the owner of his company wrote on his vacation request - denied - he can get his vacation pay while out on medical. What the h$ll is wrong with people. How freakin' arrogant to assume this is what my DH wants to do...uh NO. I don't him to get his vacation pay while he is recovering, what the F! Uh, no, I would rather have it when requested so I am able to spend time with my family you d!ck head of a man! So furious! Then I told DH to just stay on medical two weeks longer and we would go on vacation then, but then the girl won't be out of school for the summer yet, so we are basically screwed! No words! I am grateful that I will be able to go next week to Oklahoma for a few days.

Anyway I wrote a letter to his boss asking him to reconsider but my DH asked me not to send it for fear that he would get fired. Just for him, I am not sending it, but I don't know why he doesn't want his a$$hole of an owner to know just how he treats his eimployees. I guess the truth really does hurt! I'm still mad!

I made premade biscuits as a cup and filled them with groundbeef and cheese. They were kinda tasty but really didn't need the extra bread. Had green beans and salad too. Ended the day with 1420 calories.

We had the girl, she did homework but then she just was chattering away, getting on my nerves. I wanted to say, OMG will you shut up? but I never do, I just grin and bear it until her mother comes.

Slept pretty good last night. Was up at 4:30 and did the zumba. This was a different DVD about 5 minutes longer, but for some reason, I don't feel like I worked as hard, but I still had fun - oh and because I grabbed the wrong thing, in the dark, leaving the bedroom. I only had my t-shirt on when working out - I left my pants upstairs and didn't go back and get them....eye sore I'm sure!

I may walk my dog if the wind dies down.

Listening to people at work - one guy complaining to another that he wastes too much money on his boat. It needed registered, it needed new lines and something else. Guy 1 was saying - that's dumb that you spend so much money on your boat. i would sell it if I was you.

Guy 2 just said...well I think you spend too much money on your dogs. Look you spend your money on your dogs and I'll spend my money on my boat - I guess everyone has that one thing they are OK with spending money on....mine was vacation - ALAS sad face!

have a great evening!

You know how it goes...a boss is a darn boss.

Not all bosses are nice and some are pieces of...sh*t who are abusive and don't think how it feels to be in the position of of their workers.

Life isn't fair. But try not to let it get you too far down....

Lately, i'm in a similar struggle in terms only of emotions perahps...i am not feeling great this week. I can't put a finger on it. I think it's slight hormones. I'm in a funk - i think it was to do mostly with work, actually. it's my work that's getting me EXTREMELY anxious bc it's basically one level too hard for me. It's like a science experiment...or a very hard math formula. it's not my level, it's a bit not my cup of tea...i do not like how we have to actually "figure out" the project. it's not like it's laid out...we have to figure it out...blech!...sorry...

YES...i like to spend my money on FOOD...i pay premiums for certain food & drinks LOL...and not much else do a spend huge bucks on...LOL it's ok to spend money on what we love :-D

Get home and eat the left over lasagna and a few pieces of garlic toast. Ended the day with 1277 calories. I am ok with this.

Was in bed at a decent hour only to get woken up by the dog itching and scratching about 2:30. I put some medicine on him and he stopped for awhile, but I didn't get back to sleep until 4:00. Therefore, I did not get up at 4:30 for zumba. Maybe I will be able to fit it in this evening.

DH drove himself today to get some preop work done at the lab, he was PO'd that his blood sugar was up this morning at 147. He is usally getting between 80-100. He attributed to the pasta and he said...no pasta for me in awhile. It was probably the combinatino of both bread and pasta.

So after I had all my vacation plans, DH's work says, he can't go on vacation in July when he was off for six weeks recovering from surgery. What the hell? Recovering from surgery and vacation are two different things. I hate his job! I hate the people he works for! They are just so totally out of touch with reality! I cancelled my Michigan trip...for now!

B: toast with maple peanut butter, iced vanilla latte

S: apple

L: chicken salad, foccacia crackers, orange

S: maybe balanced breaks

D: either turkey meatballs or something with ground beef, both are thawed.

Will get the girl tonight - no plans yet.

No baby giraffe yet

No summer vacation

Friday, I picked up the girl and we stopped and got food DH ordered. I had a chicken, bacon, ranch wrap and some fries. I ending the day with 1240 calories.

DH was still in lots of pain and he mostly sat in his recliner most of the weekend. Saturday he went to the clinic and I had him take the girl too, as she was complaining about ear pain...again. The doctor gave DH some pain and muscle relaxer pills and the girl got amoxicillan, the go to antibiotic for kids. We decided to stay home instead of go out in the cold, colc air.

B: yogurt L: snacks - balanced breaks, gold fish and some cheese D: crockpot lasagna - turned out pretty good, cheddar biscuits greenbeans

After dinner I did decide to go shopping and the girl went with me - this I do not like. We got home a little before 10:30 - I went so late to avoid the lines and people. Ended Saturday with 1230 calories.

Sunday I made omelets and bacon for breakfast. Our breakfast was more like brunch so we didn't eat again until about 4:00, we eat early on Sunday because the girl goes home at 6:00. I made hamburger sliders - with brocoli tots and salad it was all good. I ended Sunday with 1311 calories. Did tons of laundry and cooked and waited on DH who felt better but I left him sit around.

Monday I was up at 4:30 for Zumba, I missed this over the weekend and will try to do some exercise on the weekends. I was surprised with DH said he was going to work. since the girl didn't like the crockpot lasagna, we will be having it as dinner tonight.

B: Jimmy Dean's eggwhite, turkey sausage bowl S: apple L: ham, cheese wrap, 1/2 goldfish bag, orange S: balanced breaks

D: crock pot lasagna and something

Still watching and waiting on the giraffe... Excited about my trip next week - Thinking about getting my hair cut and colored Making final arrangements for summer vacation work is work Dog is finally a little better. I finally just drenched him in coconut oil - it has helped lots. He still as one stubborn place on his leg that he keeps chewing on - I will cover him again.

Have a good night!

With ear infection, also may have to do with her hygeine maybe?

I tend to get pimples on and off in outer (but inside) ear area when i do not shower and wash hair as often...i actually now use alcohol in my outer ear a dab i put there and then use q-tip which i DO NOT recommend to girlie as i wouldn't want to see her have a problem as my thing isn't the safest but it's keeping the pimples away for me...which isn't an ear infection i do realize!

Great cals by the way ..at the start of your entry...

Great eating girlfriend! Nice cooking...i am cooking more also...feels GREAT to make more of my own :) ...

glad your doggy is getting better thanks for your hard work!

GREAT idea for sliders as it's smaller...and therefore healthier portion!!! and you can also eat with loads of veggies which i would do!!!!!! you rock!

i plan to make some burgers soon too...in sizes that are good...i'll probably buy chopped meat for them..

innerpeace on 03/07/2017:
She had been earlier to the doctor with the plugged ear. He used a syringe to get the caked up wax out. She doesn't use q-tips anymore. Then she gets fluid in her ears. This time it was just infected. Her tonsils were inflamed too.

Dog is still itching. I will bath him with epson salt and oatmeal or something. I can't figure it out.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/07/2017:
yeah, i must use q-tips or i'd always have pimples in my ear.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/07/2017:
maybe it's the winter dry skin your dog has or an allergy to a new cleaner you use on him?

Can't say for sure why I didn't post yesterday...maybe giraffe watching for way too long! I don't remember anything crazy happening....oh yes I do, I was helping someone at work do something...completely forgot about that.

Wednesday - I left work early for my follow-up eye appointment. My eye feels better but it is still red. The doctor was running behind of course and I was still sitting in the waiting room 45 minutes after my appointment time. The doctor looked at my eye for all of five minutes. I then went to get the girl, who also had her therapy appointment at 6:00 so we were rushing. We stopped at McDonald's for a family box. I spent most of the day concerned for my lethargic dog. The vet told me to give him some low dose aspirin if he was in pain. I still don't know why he's in pain. He wouldn't jump on the bed, he had a hard time climbing the stairs, my poor, poor baby. He is still itching also - I sprayed him down with my itch mixture.

DH was home we ate the dinner box - I took all the cheese and extra bun out of my burger and had like a small double cheeseburger and a small french fries. I ended Wednesday with 1903 calories....a little high for me.

Thursday - crazy day at work - helped the electronic technician with safety stuff - took most of my afternoon. Once I got home - my dog was acting like his normal self, which I am so thankful for. I still gave him another dose of the aspirin and sprayed him down with the itch mixture. He was much better this morning.

Thursday:

B: crumpetts, peanut butter, iced vanilla latte

S: almond sweat and salty bar

L: ham and cheese wrap, orange, gold fish

S: balanced breaks

D: chicken fajitas, alvocado

Ended Thursday with 1608 calories

I was up at 4:30 to do zumba this morning and it snowed three inches - last week it was 70! Got to work and DH texts me at 10:30 needing to go home. He was having back spasms. I left work and took him home. This angered me. I feel bad that it angers me. I wish I could be a better nurturer. Anyway DH is home, hopefully resting and I came back to work for a few hours. I will have to get the girl on my way home.

B: yogurt, iced vanilla latte

S: almond sweet and salty bar

L: ham and cheese wrap, orange, gold fish

S: apple, balanced breaks

D: we are going out - I usually get a chicken bacon wrap and will probably be ok with calories

A few plans over the weekend, but with DH's back messed up, plans could be skewed a bit.

Have a great weekend!

(A note - I did not change my weight at the beginning of the year. I was so disgusted with myself and there comes a point in time when you just say NO MORE! My starting weight on January 1, 2017 was 328 pounds. Today the scale read 312.5. I am very happy with this and once again, when I get to 306, I will change the weight on DD. I just couldn't put the gain up theredue to my current mind set!) Getting excited about my OKC trip and can't wait to see my mom...I miss her!)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/03/2017:
Don't worry - with calories in the 1900's, you will not gain weight. maybe not lose so fast, but you will def not gain at all....it's ok to have variations in your day's calories each week as it will keep your metabolism up.

Your calories Thursday are EXCELLENT for weight loss. If i were to eat like you did on Thursday with 1600 cals per take for a like one month straight, i'd lose probably 2-4 pounds definitely in that month.

talk more later...

you do not have to strictly diet to lose weight...

keep up the great work...

Your weight loss of 16 pounds in 2 months is not good, it's GREAT!

keep up the good work.

You lost the weight fair and square bc you counted the calories and watched what you ate.

NICELY DONE.

Weightloss is math...more than anything...and finding GOOD SUBSTITUTES so you can eat and be full...but not gain weight.

I just bought tons of cheap but prepared veggies to last me well thru the weekend and into next week! (i work in Queens, NY so the options can be endless. and i work on a block loaded with ethnic caribbean and indian restaurants...i got lucky. and there's a GOOD supermarket...they just roasted up loads of veggies...so i bought them, made fresh right as I stepped in!!)

anyways, i'm happy for you.

as you continue your weight loss journey, it will become easier and easier bc you will see there are HUGE options in the world of healthy eating. huge options how to flavor and cook your food. def not boring! and you know...i love what you make!

i still want to make, still didn't do it yet, cauliflower fried rice.

I often feel resentful about my husband's poor health. It really has shifted our family dynamic as everything seems to revolve -- one way or another -- his health, whether it means that I can't exercise from 5:30a-6:30a when I want to because I have to help him with his socks and shoes, or if he's crabby because he's in a lot of pain, or if he makes himself a pizza (after eating the panchki that my daughter was saving for tonight) when he's supposed to be trying to lose 50-60 pounds...

Picked up DH and he cooked. Dog did NOT want to walk. I mixed a anti-itch dip from facebook (ACV, camomille tea, green tea, water and I added some coconut oil) to spray on my dog. He loved the massage he was getting. It helped some, but he is still itching. When I reached down to pick him up, he yelped. I couldn't find anything wrong with him so not sure about that. The YA came over for a bit, but didn't stay long. Ended the day with 1320 calories.

Storms woke me up about 2:00 last night, i got up and my little dog was whining. I checked him out again and couldn't find anything wrong with him. I checked on the giraffe and made sure the weather wasn't escalating and went back to bed. My little dog just layed there and shivered. I covered him up. This morning I didn't get up for Zumba. The early morning rustle did nothing for my energy. I turned off the alarm and slept until 6:10. Eating breakfast my little dog was just lying there. I checked on him and he hardly moved. If he isn't better when I get home, he is going to the vet. I cannot stand my dog being in pain and I don't know why.

B: turkey sausage, pancake, iced vanilla latte

S: apple

L: ham and cheese wrap, gold fish, orange

S: balanced breaks

D: chicken and something

I have an eye doctor follow-up and then I am going to get the girl. She has a therapy appointment tonight, so things will probably be rushed.

Struggling at work---with slowness going on right now. Hoping for a busier tomrrow.

Enjoy your day. IP

Wait does your dog have fleas? Is that why he is sick? I don't know if you actually said why?

Awww, your dog loves you so much...that's great he liked the massage..lucky dog yo!

Great cals.

Yes, we didn't have a storm, but the high winds woke me last night!

Oh, so you do not know why your dog isn't well? I hope it is figured out soon, no good.

There's all kinds of new ways to make pancakes...healthy...like protein pancakes if you use egg whites...filling and low cal...or to use a banana - but i don't love that method...i do like to grind some oats and use them - makes the pancake fluffy....

innerpeace on 03/03/2017:
My dog would NEVER have fleas! I take care of that dog better than my DH or the girl! I couldn't figure out what was wrong with him. He was squawking about his left shoulder, maybe he ran into the doggie door coming in the house or something. The vet told me to give him low dose aspirins to alleviate some pain. He was better last night and this morning. I was so relieved.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 03/03/2017:

Ok curser is gone again on the entry page. I can post a blank entry and respond but that is all. I have used two different browsers. Oh well.

Picked up DH and we had left over chicken lasagna and chicken. I attempted to walk my dog, but he is just not having it. Poor little guy. He is so scared these days. Ended the day with 1157 calories.

Spent most of the evening watching a live feed of a pregnant giraffe. What the h$ll is wrong with me?

Dh invited the YA over for dinner tonight, he said he would come. I think they have decided to go to the CLE car show this weekend, not sure if the girl will go or not. Still trying to find out if she got to go to the swim park on Saturday, she has been very quiet the last few days on the messenger.

Work is ok, just ok, I hope things pick up with the new month. I will have two weeks until my OKC trip. Getting so nervous; excited!

I did get up and do the zumba DVD BUT I had a pazki at work today for Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday! I brought in a king cake (complete with baby) and mardi gras beads, but the pazki donuts or pastry or whatever they are beat out the king cake, no one touched it hardly - including ME! Oh well it will sit there I am not taking it home.

I will try to walk my dog again, I need him to get out of his funk. I will not let anything happen to him again. Poor little guy.

For some reason, i'm not interested in watching the giraffe...only the part when she gives birth haha.


Horn_of_plenty on 03/01/2017:
I guess don't walk the dog but i don't see how this is helpful...perhaps it's diff than getting a human to face their fears lol...sorry i don't mean to laugh, wrong emotion. i am not very familiar with having dogs as pets at all.

Lost my curser again. This hasn't happened in a long while. So an interest weekend. Friday had a total blowout - total calories for the day was 3138 - OMG DH's son stopped by and visited for awhile and then headed home. DH is so estatic when the YA (Young Adult) drops by without an invitation. It was a nice visit.

Saturday DH was up early and went to work. I got up about 8:00. Stripped the beds and started laundry. Scrubbed the bathrooms and started a pot roast. Started watching April the giraffe and am totally engrossed in the birth process there - even more so than the Eagles in Florida. OMG it's just nature, but so interesting too. B: cheerios L: cheerios D: pot roast, cauliflower and salad S: gold fish, yogurt After dinner, DH and I went shopping. We met the YA at SAM's to change over the membership. I never ever go, so DH put the YA on his membership. Then we get back home and the YA stays around again, I really think he just missed his dad the last four years. He made his car payment and all is good. Ended the day with 1260 calories

SUNDAY - The YA turns 19 today, he had plans with his other family members...not his mom - they are still fighting. We tell him not to let time pass and to mend fences with her by the YA says she didn't even wish him a happy birthday - this is so sad. B: crumpetts, peanut butter, iced vanilla latte L: beef sticks, brioche buns D: chicken lasagna, salad Lots of laundry today, watched the giraffe most of the day - still no calf :( Ended the day with 1440 calories

MONDAY!! Still no calf!! was up at 4:30 and did zumba for 55 minutes - hope this is a good Monday! B: Special K breakfast sandwich, iced vanilla latte S: apple L: ham and cheese wrap, orange S: balanced breaks D: left over chicken lasagna

Have a great evening!

On a better note, I am down three more pounds and was really excited this morning stepping on the scale. I was working on vacation plans over the weekend. We have decided we are going to Pure Michigan. We are going the end of July so DH's knee should be ready to go!

I boldly invited the YA this morning. I haven't heard back from him, but hoping he will come as well.

Monday at work...not the finest hour.

Congrats on the loss! Cool that you're going to Michigan - I live in Michigan and absolutely love it - most of the time! What are you planning to see/do?

innerpeace on 02/28/2017:
we are doing tourist things. Going to a lodge in Interlochen and stopping by the sleeping bear dunes. On the way home we are staying at a water park in Frankenmuth. It is a five day four night trip. Looking forward to it.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/28/2017:
Lol, well, i hope you find your cursor!

I am sorry you struggled during the weekend. Maybe to make you feel better - I have been struggling also to keep cals down the way I was earlier this fall and winter. Lately, my cals are always in the 2,000's for weekly avg instead of 1800's...big change and trying not to gain weight from it since it's been this way for over a month now.

One day will not cause too much damage, even at 3,000 cals. just try to get back on your horse ASAP. have faith in the process, you are doing GREAT.

I read further - GREAT CALS after the blowout. you rock, you got this!

you threw up? so sorry....feel better. it happens to all of us...overeating.

no i didn't throw up, just indigestion and belching.



InnerPeace - Thursday Feb 23, 2017

Weight: 306.0

I sent DH a recipe for Australian Chicken - It has bacon, cheese and some mustard sauce with mushrooms...he made it while I walked the dog. It was pretty good, except for the sauce, he said the instructions said to serve the sauce chilled...uh NO it would have been better heated. Ended the night with 1442 calories.

Woke up about 4:15 sweating - maybe a hot flash at night, I don't know, but I stayed up and did the 55 minute zumba DVD. I will probably look for another set of zumba DVDs.

I told DH to leave a few items out of my lunch to reduce calories - leave out - the breakfast protein bar 160 calories and leave out the individual size bag of gold fish - 200 calories. I asked him to replace them with an orange and some baby carrots and hummus (approximately 195 for both) Yeah...he left out the things, but didn't put the new stuff in....so I will be super hungry at dinner.

B: yogurt, iced tea

S: apple

L: ham, cream cheese wrap

S: balanced breaks

D: salisbury steak...I think

We have the girl tonight!

Progress as of today: 15.6 lbs lost so far, only 96 lbs to go!

Sounds like a good day except for the lack of lunch substitutes. This was me yesterday --- didn't pack raw vegetables for the afternoon. OMG I was about ready to start biting other people's nails...


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/24/2017:
I agree...i'd want the sauce warm also!

Yeah those goldfish are stinky. lots of artificial stuff. you're better off with veggies or crackers that aren't as processed...or fruit or nothing..! you are RIGHT. oh...now i read what you want them replaced with - GOSH YES! you done so good lady. PERFECT replacements and so healthy!!!

maybe you can get something during work...or....on the way home, have a snack to calm you before dinner or drink seltzer on your ride home...these are things i do to suppress my appetite - when i wasn't able to snack right as i like to during day...
