Had a slow weekend, I may have been in one of my depressed, i don't want or feel like doing anything at all funks. Saturday DH's truck had a bad transmission leak and it is at the shop now. He drove my car on Sunday thus preventing me from even leaving the house, even if I did want to do anything, but I didn't.

Eating was ok Saturday we had pork chops, mashed potatoes and green beans.

Sunday I made chicken paprikash and salad

Tonight we have signed up for a glow hike, but depending on my dental apointment, I may or may not feel like going. I hate the dentist and right now there isn't anything in my mouth that hurts, but that isn't always the case after I leave.

B: iced vanilla latte, jimmy dean delights

L: PB&J sandwich

D: DH is cooking I have no idea

Have a great evening! IP

Peanut butter has been my craving lately.....and I'm allergic to it....UGH


Horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2018:
i have not heard or read the word Paprikash in a LONG time....i must google it to remember what it is! :)

good luck at the dentist and perhaps your restful weekend was just what the dr ordered!

let us know if you hiked!

I got a phone call from the TeleHealth program, I have been officially removed. I have all the tools and information I need to continue the program on my own - basically they kicked me off. He did tell me that if I felt just absolutely 'helpless' to call my PCP and they will put me back on after 30 days. Nah, thanks...I'm good! I think he didn't like hearing about my truths...Yes, I've been to a nutrianalist, yes I'm a member of a gym, but I'm lazy and I love food. Unless you are here to prepare my meals and lock the cabinets and force me to work out then you will just have to wait until I decide to take these steps on my own for longer than one or two weeks at a time.

I get home and DH has the left over brisket warmed up and the mac and cheese and a salad ready for dinner. After tracking all of my food and measuring everything I had 1348 calories.

And then not only did I have good calories I was forced to freakin' walk a 5K just to get to the concert venue. We have never been to the Blossom Music Center and from the experience last night, it's a safe bet to say, I will never go again. We arrived about 6:45 (concert was to start at 7:30). We were guided to park in a far off field with a sea of cars and trucks already parked and tailgating no less. With grills and coolers and tents and a scene I could never even imagine. We grabbed umbrellas, as it rained the entire way to the venue. After being herded with the thousands of other concert goers in the realitvely same direction we came to the first gate and had all our belongings checked. I thougth we were almost there, but still up and down a few hills and down a long, long walk way, we finally see it. I looked at my phone and it was already 7:50 and we heard one song from the opening act, I guy I didn't know. He exited and Hank Williams Jr. came on and stayed on stage until well after 9:30. I'm not a big fan of his. I think Brad Paisley finally came on about 9:45 and played only until about 10:30, so disappointed, but they had to end the show early due to the WEATHER!!!! I kid you not! It's like the sky opened up and a deluge of rain poured and poured on us. The people on the lawn scattered like ants, and all these thousands of people trying to get away fromt he rain was not a good scene. Mud and slippery surfaces are not good for the people who imbided a little much in the brew!!

We had our umbrellas but they were difficult to use when peple are crowded you and running from the rain. It was difficult to say the least to leave the ampitheater and even more so, when you have to inch your way into bumper to bumper traffic trying to leave. We did get to our car at 11:10, we finally got out of the parking lot at 11:45. We dropped the girl off at her mothers at 1:00 in the morning. DH and I get home about 1:30 and are up in 4 hours to go to work. Needless to say I'm dog tired sitting at work today. Despite the rain and walk, we did have a great time at the concert.

Today so far:

B: iced vanilla latte (this is a mix with milk - not really coffee of any kind) - 180

toast with 1 tbsp of butter - 270

L

3 oz tuna

1/2 cup cottage cheese

sandwich rounds

banana - 320 calores

D:

I don't know yet!

Will probably do yard work, since it won't be stupid hot this weekend.

Have a great day! IP

HWJ and Brad Paisley?!? Probably worth the wet. Glad you guys got home safe! I feel you on the telehealth program. I'm not having much luck going on anyone else's schedule either. I can only make the small changes I can make and just keep at what I can like water on stone. Today I ate my broccoli first before I reheated better tasting leftovers for breakfast. That was my change for todayu.

that's one short concert with Brad Paisley...so sorry about the weather what an incredible funny story (after the fact!). this will be a memory that little girlie will now grow up remembering ;) about the time you guys got rained on at the concert ;)

but i'm glad you got to enjoy it beforehand...lots of exercise too!!!!!!! ha!

it's cooled down just a hair by me, too, this weekend! so thankful!

Spent the day relaxing. I love being off work and though about using two vacation days for Thursday and Friday but decided not too. DH and I just decided on vacation this year. We rented a cabin in the smokey mountains near Pigeon Forge, I think in Sieverville. Three nights during the first week in August. Looking forward to just getting away. And it is pet friendly so Steve will get to come as well. And then I will have the work trip the last week in August, so August will be eventful.

DH smoked a brisket for dinner and I made some mac and cheese and we just relaxed. DH walked Steve and then I walked him right before it got dark. The fireworks don't normally bother him, but I did want to get the walk over before, just in case. I know he was chasing the fireworks last year and I couldn't imagine what would happen if he actually caught one.

Actually logged breakfast this morning...

Light start carnation instant breakfast w/2% milk - 180

Whole wheat sandwich round toasted  w/1 Tbsp butter - 130

Banana - 90

400 calorie breakfast

Lunch:

tuna, cottage cheese, apple

Dinner:

Left over brisket

We have the concert tonight and it looks like rain - the venue is outside ampitheater so might have issues there.

Have a great day! iP

August sounds AWESOME for you!!!!!!!!! i love getting away. It's such a piece of mind to be off the work routine! so happy for your August plans!

brisket sounds amazing!! we had so many fireworks. i can see them EVERYWHERE from my apt i have views of tons of towns. i brought the hamster out, she wasn't afraid really!

is the carnation thing a cereal? sounds good!

your food sounds AWESOME!!!!!!!

i hope the concert works out!!!! let us know!

Dogs and fireworks can be an issue...my son lost a black lab on the 4h a few years ago...they were in the hot tub...and he was laying on the deck...and then the fireworks started he got scared and ran.....and they didn't notice right away...he was never found....


Horn_of_plenty on 07/05/2018:
i didn't take thursday and friday either as it's a nice, slow easy week!

i prefer to get these short weeks and then take off at a time when we don't get any days off...this year i plan to run outta nyc when it's cold and escape to Florida - if everything goes right.

Saturday went to the retirement party. It was ok, sat with some co-workers. I was ready to go home when it ended. DH and the girl went out to eat on their own.

Sunday - Started July off with a bang! Got up early and walked Steve. The girl took him again about 4:30, he was worn out. We try to go to bed and he wants his treat. He jumped off and on the bed for a couple of hours and barked at me, I finally gave him his treat. He was so irritated he pooped in the floor to show his dissastisfaction. Little A hole! DH grilled chicken and we had salad and green beans.

Monday - busy at work, trying to get the retiree out of here, lots of paperwork and emails flying around. Tried to walk after work, very humid and hot. Had a rotisserie chicken salad with corn and avocado for lunch and then bacon, eggs and toast for dinner.

Tuesday - get to leave work early, my turn to get the girl. I am making a crossaint chicken pot pie, recipe from facebook or somewhere. We bought two rotisserie chickens and have been eating them for two days. So much easier to prepare meals with precooked chicken. I have the same chicken and avocado salad for lunch, but they are having a BBQ for the retiree and give me the stink eye for not eating a hotdog!

No big plans for the 4th....but I just won tickets to see Brad Paisley on the 5th. Love him!

Have a save, happy and free 4th. IP

Lol, what a biatch of a dog to poop to tell you who is boss!? Too funny, really, for me!

Monday meals sound soooo tasty! Love seeing avocado on your menu! So healthy!

Yes, those precooked chickens are sooo convenient!! I used to buy them often, but they got wasted which is why I’ve bought them soooo much less.

Have no worries about the stink eye….lol…give it back! Or just smile.

I made chicken marsala last night for dinner. It was just ok, because I used a store bought gravy from th store. My chicken marsala is so much better, and I actually think this brand was in the cabinet so long, it may have fermented more  or else I just didn't care for it.

So I have came to the conclusion that my dog is overweight...he is and I want to do all I can to help him, which will in turn help myself. No more treats and more exercise.  He is so spoiled, I'm sure I will meet with resistance.

I am spoiled too. I just cannot bring myself to endure any abstinance whatsoever when it comes to food, I just cannot get past this road block. I don't want to be uncomfortable or any pain whatsoever and I know I must endure both to make any kind of progress.

I came across a podcast (this is the first one I've ever listened to) LIAM (life is a marathon)  by Bruce Van Horn, he covers life, insight, wisdom and encouragement. I am Dori...instead of just keep swimming, it is just keep trying....

B: mini bagel and cream cheese, vanilla iced latte

L: roast beef sandwich from Deli - had some kind of garlic sauce and my breath reeks, extra to the rescue

S: little brownie

D: DH is making a chicken parmesean I think for the girl.

We have the girl this weekend, no plans as of yet, it is supposed to be very hot and humid so we might not venture far.

Have a great weekend!

horn_of_plenty on 06/29/2018:
I think it's easier to fix a pet being overweight than a person. I think you will be successful...just don't give him the treats and he'll lose the weight. Even if the dog begs, don't give in...and the dog will get used to your new rules. It takes a little while for a dog or person to learn new habits...so now you will also have to create a new habit to NOT give him treats. Or choose 1 day out of the week to give him a treat, instead of everyday.

Why do you have to be fully abstinant to lose weight? You do not have to feel so much pain and being uncomfortable..

Why not just do one simple habit change - like if you order or drink large lattes, drink a smaller one. or switch from latte to coffee? i think i may have already asked you this...

garlic sauce sounds great...i am chewing gum now too...

i am craving a decaf coffee so badly...will reach for one as soon as coworkers go home!!!!...i do not want to get up now and have them talk...when they leave i'll clean my dirty bowl and grab a hot coffee...

i need to be busier at work like you..

i see you had no veggies...but i know you like them :-P it will help you...


horn_of_plenty on 06/29/2018:
enjoy your weekend and stay as cool as you can!


Donkey on 06/30/2018:
An interesting point you make there about weight loss, for you, involving some level of discomfort or painful... I'm not sure that's correct. That is to say that I agree with Horn's comment about changing one simple habit.

Hmm... you have given me much to think about, with respect to my own journey. Has weight loss been painful (for me)? Has weight loss been uncomfortable? I honestly haven't/hadn't thought about this. Hmm...


happy-1 on 07/02/2018:
I have zero resistance when it comes to food too. I had to ask my friend's aunt to hide her diet coke, tortillas and chocolate kisses when I dog sit this weekend because they just stare at me and call to me with their siren song. I have found that meal prep and pre-portioning into plastic containers really, really helps me a lot because there are fewer opportunities for me to make bad decisions and also it is less daunting because the 2 cups of broccoli is already set up. I just have to eat it. I'm understanding more and more that my willpower is a finite resource like time and money and I only have so much budget of it per day and by the end of the day it is spent.

Just another day.

Trying to find my way, am just having an incredibly horrible time lately. This is a down day and I would love to just crawl into a hole and sleep.

The girl was over and was watching a Netflix series called 13 Reasons Why.  A teenager committed suicide and recorded some cassette tapes for all her friends to play and listen to and she revealed what each one of them did to her to help her make this decision. It's amazing how actions from all of these people could affect another in ways they will probably never know or would never have known.

Be Kind Always!

I bought a digital scale to better portion out my servings.

B: toast, vanilla iced latte

L: nasty flat bread sandwich I baked in the oven last night with ham and cheese. The flat bread was super tough and hard to eat, banana

S: power ups - peanut butter snack by Jif

D: chicken with some peanut thai coconut sauce and rice

Have a great day!

Hi IP! I see you’ve just come back to write another entry today!!

If it makes you feel any better, I’m having a very down week also. I’m drained also. Plus, it was POURING very heavily this morning…My socks and pants got wet. It was a good day to want to just go right home and to bed! I feel you. I have down days myself! Now I’m sleepy, but I know to keep on…I have planned to come into work late tomorrow at 10am so now I can go to the gym and at least feel good about sleeping in till 8 – instead of waking up before 5…things like this help. I’m telling you this to show you I planned this for myself since you were talking about needing to plan your own time…so I’m hoping that with a shorter day tomorrow, I’ll feel a little better as the weekend nears, instead of totally depleted..we shall see how it works out.

This is an interesting movie…I want to watch it. I’ll see if it’s available at my library. They should probably show it in all middle schools and then discuss it.

I have a digital scale at home and still haven’t used it…i would be interested to even see what certain weights of vegetables work out to be in terms of servings/calories. I had bought it to see the weights of meat actually but I am nervous to put raw uncooked meat on it…I can always place it on a plate on top of the scale…or,I can weigh the cooked meat instead probably. Anyways, I also have a scale and I guess haven’t been motivated. I think it’ll be good for you. Just to see about what a portion of something really is.

That peanut butter snack – is it the peanut butter jelly sandwich that they make? I’ll have to look into the powerups!

Lastly, your dinner sounds delicious.

Really super busy. We received results back from our inspection. We had about 10 write ups, half of them could have been fixed prior to the inspection if others were just doing their jobs, but hey, they were all minor and nothing terribly bad.

The party-planner, organizer, scheduler, orderer and all the behind the scenes crap that gets done at work...i'm that girl. Order this, schedule this, make this stuff happen, this is me. Sometimes, I get in situations and get bogged down and overwhelmed and forget about me, taking care of me and my family. I need to learn steps to always include me in my day and/or planning of my day.

Friday we went to the baseball game, it started 1:30 hours late due to the weather, but we stayed. It was a great game and I had a great time and the fireworks at the end were spectacular.

DH had to work on Saturday and the girl went home at 10:00 leaving me at the house to do whatever I wanted which was nothing!

Sunday I was gathering laundry and went into the girl's bathroom and had a cow. I cannot believe how nasty she left it. She treats our house like a hotel. I had a little crazy moment, but I hope she understands where I'm coming from now, she is 13 and can clean up after herself.  Sunday I cleaned and did the laundry and got caught up in a Jesse Stone marathon on TV, so of course I watched.

The girl had a dental appointment yesterday and I'm glad her mouth is sore for a minute. I told her she treats her teeth like my bathroom, she wasn't too happy.

Have to attend a retirement ceremony on Saturday, I am not looking forward, I will be so far out of my comfort zone, I make myself sick.

Anyway, things will get moving again soon.

BE YOU! IP

horn_of_plenty on 06/28/2018:
I'm happy that all the write-ups were for minor items :) good job!

One activity that has helped me have me time daily is to step out at lunchtime and walk. Can you do this? It's good to get out of the building, walk a little, i tend to try to eat when i come back from outside..

Yes, i agree, sometimes you do have a LOT going on. It is important to have your own time.

I"m glad the game was good and that you could enjoy the fireworks :) I had an option to see fireworks last night but was too tired and didn't wanna skip exercise again. so i exercised late after dinner and skipped the fireworks...i wish to have gone but with me it's always like if i go to something, it's a choice to either not relax or not exercise or just not have time doing something else. do you ever feel this way? especially social events this happens to me - where i decide if i really want to be social or if i'd rather be with just one person or by myself totally..i'm socially just not always the life of the party!...back to you -

You will have to teach her how to clean the bathroom. You have to teach 13yr olds...for instance, when i was 13 i know for SURE that i'd need someone to show me how to do things. even if they were easy. at her mom's house, rules i am sure are wayyy different and messes may be in abundance. show her what to do and assign the task to her before she leaves...make a certain time for it. like you both can clean bathrooms at the same time. you have to do it with her 1-2x.

Sorry to hear that her dental appt was a pain...show her how to clean the bathroom and she'll do it. try to show her how to do it as painlessly and efficiently fast as possible so that she can actually get it done.

With the retirement ceremony - try to take it easy on yourself about it. I also do not love these types of social occasions. You don't even need to stay the whole time. I see some people sometimes leave before the cake comes out...like eat the meal and leave. if you feel so uncomfortable, see if you can possibly show your face and leave early...or treat yourself to something nice after...like go home and take a walk after. Do something for yourself after.

innerpeace on 06/28/2018:
I have showed her how to clean, I was in there with her showing her how to clean, this is why I am so aggravated. She just doesn't do it, because she's nasty. She has time, because she watches Netflix for hours, she's lazy. She has rules and guidelines and 'how to clean for dummies' now. We'll see if she does it.

The retirement thing, I organized it and have to be there early to pay and ensure the people who haven't paid...pay. It's a mess. There was another girl involved but she had a 'family emergency' and will not be in town this night, so I guess I wills step up to the plate.

I tried to get in touch with DH all morning yesterday and my texts didn't go through, I tried calling and I went straight to voicemail, so I was concerned.

DH would text me and I would answer but he would never get it. Finally, we figured out he had me blocked. Unintentionally?? He said he butt blocked me. I believe him, he has butt called and butt facetimed with me, so it's all good. I guess that's how the VA Telehealth number got blocked too, but everything is unblocked...now we just have to figure out the data sharing problem. And the TeleHealth call arrived on schedule this morning.

For some reason I wanted to try the naked chicken chalupa from Taco Bell. It was pretty tasty, but won't make this a habit. That's what was for dinner.

Not a lot going on a work, thank goodness. I will be off Friday and then we get a baseball game tomorrow as well...if it doesn't get rained out which is a big possiblities. I am looking forward to going to the game.

No big plans over the weekend because the girl goes back home and DH works, so I will have some alone time and I'm looking forward to that too.

And as Donkey says...I will do better tomorrow.

Thank you all for your continued support.

PEACE!

Was away from work for a few days! I have a computer at home, but it is hard to sometimes, sit there and post something.

Friday I left work a little early and got home, DH has Puerto Rican food for us to eat. It was ok, got a touch of indigestion and fell asleep in the recliner. Once I woke up we decided to drive to Sandusky to get some iced coffee. We got home about midnight and then went to Wal-Mart and finished shopping, best time ever to go to Walmart - I'd rather wheel around pallets of groceries than bodies of people.

Saturday we went to a few garage sales and got the girl. Her friend came over and spent the afternoon with her, DH cooked out brats and hamburgers.

Sunday we stayed around the house, I did laundry and DH smoked some BBQ ribs, this is what he wanted for Father's Day. The YA and stinky GF came over. They are the rudest two...I swear. I was always taught to ask others if they needed help with something, nary a peep from these two, they just sat in the living room on their phones, while DH and I cooked and sat the table. Awful young people. I'm glad DH was happy with his kids over, it has been awhile since he's celebrated Father's Day with both of them and the dogs!

Monday the girl and I drove all over Cleveland looking for Cleveland (scrip) signs. There are four out in town (we found 2, one is downtown and I didn't want to fight parking and the last one is on the east side, where I don't want to go alone) and the wind was crazy wild on the lake.

Tuesday we binged watch TV. The girl was watching 13 Reasons on netflix and I watched Below Deck: Mediterrean on Bravo all day.

All weekend we ate reasonably well - no sweet stuff.

DH and I did have a little discussion that was escalated a bit because of the stupid Iphone. I was looking at my steps and it was reading I had over 12,000 steps. I'm like I know it and you know it, I did not walk 12,000 steps, so why is my phone saying I did? So whatever is happening, my phone has DH's steps added to mine and we cannot figure out how to separate the data, he is supposed to take the phones to the apple store and try to get it figured out. We are iphone illiterate or something. I wasn't made at him, but he thought I was. No, I just want my phone to be correct, or else I can't use it for reference or as a pedometer. And he made the comment, 'you're making excuses!" That kind of ticked me off. I just wanted to report correct data is all. I have to tell the Telehealth people this stuff and I'm not saying I walked 12,000 steps when I know I didn't, regardless of what the phone reads.

Anyway, I also found out the telehealth number along with lots of others were blocked...how and why? DH says he didn't do it, and I know I didn't do it, so dum, dum, dum...it's the iphone ghost. but I know he did!

So it was a relaxing two days and I did not want to come to work today, but here I am and I'm just having the best day!

Hello IP!

Same here, I prefer to be at work commenting….tho sometimes at home when I’m less busy it’s relaxing to go on here and comment on / write entries :---)

Was the Puerto Rican Food beans, rice and fried plantains?

I love to go grocery shopping early on weekends before the crowds…Tho haven’t experienced the Midnight schedule yet. I actually bought a used lawn chair at a garage sale this past Saturday too…it’s lighter than my current one and comfortable to sit out on even on my balcony…it was $6…has a cup holder.

If YA and girlfriend don’t offer help…demand their help! Ask them to help you !

There’s no point to a fitbit if you can’t get the right reading…I’m with ya! I hope it gets sorted out really soon!

I took the fitbit off when I realized that when I was rocking in a rocking chair it thought I was walking...LOL

I hope you can find a solution to the fitness tracker dilemma.



InnerPeace - Friday Jun 15, 2018

Weight: 315.0

Talked to my BFF in Oklahoma, she said her wife has lost 40 pounds and she has lost 10. She said they have started eating whole foods and are very OCD about weighing and measuring everything. I am very proud of their dedication. She just laughed and said it was more of their OCD tendencies than anything. She suggested I go buy a decent scale. I might do that!

The Duck tape festival is this weekend, the last time we went it was just way too crowded for the little area it is held in and I was seriously sunburned, but DH said he may want to check it out again this year. I suggested the Festival of the Fish in Vermillion by the lake, but then those Canadian Solders are swarming so I don't think tha twould be a good idea either. And then the girl wanted her friends to come over again tomorrow. Maybe one more time and then we'll have to take a break with the friends over.

This is the weekend of the girl and I have nothing planned, so these may be for some long days! I'll start looking tonight!

No big plans for Father's Day. DH said he wanted to smoke some ribs...I say whatever!

Have a great weekend...
