Good Afternoon

Having another great day - hot but ok. 

Tonight is soccer night three more games left before the finals. 

I have got dinner cooking in the slow cooker and will be ready by the time I get back from the game.  Did my errands again today it seems I am always going to the store for something missing.  I always shop only for a few days I find it keep my meals interesting because it is what I feel like eating.  I do stock up on meat on sale so it is more the things that go with the meat that I go out and get.  Got to take advantage of the sales. 

Apart from that I have been trying to find somebody to go down south with me for the Winter not an easy thing to do.  Everybody has their own plans.  Would be nice to share Winter with somebody and have some company.  Anyway will see what turns out.

Wishing you all a great day.

yes, i took advantage of a sugar-free jello sale...

buying the mix is so much cheaper than the ready-made ones...gonna try working on making it at home instead of buying the pre-made cups...which are double the price.

puddles on 08/03/2016:
I have never knew you could make your own jello.


OhioRaven on 08/03/2016:
I'll Go !!!

Good afternoon.

Good day yesterday.  Routine on track.

Went out for breakfast with brother my s-i-l has gone to see her sister up north and we decided we would go anyway out for breakfast.  It was nice the topics of discussion where a little more on the brother sister side and that is always nice. 

Another sticky day here and will be even worst tomorrow.  I am looking forward to cooler days when it hits almost 100 with the humidex that is just too much for me.  I love the mid 70s that is comfortable.  The evening and nights go down enough to cool down but it does not take much time in the morning for it to be back up. 

Not to sure what will be for dinner tonight but probably something light since I had my regular breakfast and that was around 10:30.  It is more of a brunch then a breakfast.  Anyway all is good.  Life is good.  Nothing to complain about.

Wishing you all a great day.

PS  still in my plateau mode....  it is what it is... just keep doing what I do.

Nice tradition to have breakfast with family. Hope it cools off for you. Cooler today in the northeast.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/03/2016:
funny how up north by you it's hot & sticky and down south here in NYC it's really nice summer weather and low humidity!

enjoy your brunch / breakfast and let us know how it goes...

Plateau mode is good...lately, i'm REALLY enjoying mine. It's low and I'm enjoying being able to fit in my clothes well at the moment. hard work pays off.

Good morning

All is good at this end of the world.

We are going through another heat wave again.  This is a long weekend for us in Canada and going to play some tennis with my grandson today.  That will be fun just hope that the heat will not keep us off the court because of the humidity. 

My food is on track and so is my water.  Not too many plan this week except going to meet a friend on Thursday for coffee.  I am glad because I do have a lot of chore that I have been putting off and just being lazy lately.  That is ok.  I am allowed to be lazy sometimes.  We all need some of those times it is rejuvenating my me time. 

Wishing you all a great day and a great week ahead.

What's the long weekend for? Family weekend?

Weather is not hot here. We've cooled down so NICELY! only upper 70's today....yay!

Like you, i'm enjoying staying on track with food.

It's amazing :-D So proud of myself for sticking with it & learning to eat less and be full. It's amazing how good food choices lead to good weight results!

Pass the cabbage! :-D

Have fun with your grandson!

puddles on 08/01/2016:
Every month during the Summer the first Monday of the Month is a holiday. Yes you should be proud of yourself and yes if we stick to our routine it rewards us.


Horn_of_plenty on 08/01/2016:

Good afternoon

Yesterday was another good day.

Up way too early this morning.  I can definitely foresee a nap this afternoon if I expect to stay up pass 8 tonight.  I tried a wonderful recipe last night made myself a crustless quiche brocolli, onions, mushroom and red peppers' 4 eggs'  l cup milk' 1/2 cup rice flour.  Precook partially veg, put in oven proof corning pour liquids in then in oven 350 for 1/2 hrs.  Top with a little bit of cheddar when you take it out.   Wow it is just soo good.  Had some of that with a salad.

Leftovers today.

Have to run some errands today because this is a long weekend and everything will be closed on Monday.  

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a busy day.  Decided to take a ride out of town to see a friend and that was a great time but got home late.

Today just going to relax I do not have anything on my agenda except some house stuff and cleaning off my patio again for the weekend.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was good but I did not get out again.  Thank God I am going to see my grandson play soccer tonight.  I will be out and about for the late afternoon and early evening.  Not sure what the hell is going on in my brain but at least it is not causing me to binge eat.  The weather is so damn hot and humid and that is probably why I do not dare go out I just can't stand this weather.  My favorite seasons are Spring, early Summer and Fall.  I have never been one for the extreme heat.  My Winters in Myrtle SC are perfect for me since the weather falls right into the kind of temperature I love 60s and 70s.  Oh well a few more weeks and we will be in August and Fall temperatures will be here and definitely right up my alley.

Enough complaining.  Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

All is good at this end of the world.  We are finally have one cool morning and I am just trying to cool down the house.  The humidity has been really high in the past few days.

Planning to go out today.  I need to get out of the house before I go crazy.

Nothing else planned I will play it by ear.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a pretty good day.

It seems that I am on one more plateau as usual.  I seem to be wiggling up down up down from my stated weight.  This is such an unusual way of attaining my goal.  I have to wonder how long this plateau will be.  I just have to keep doing what I do and eventually this plateau will also break.  The last one lasted 3 or 4 months.  The good news about it is that I get to practice maintenance through those months or at least that is how it feels.   I am not really complaining because this weight feels good.

Today nothing has been predecided yet and I have let it be that way.  We are having a rainy day so not a day to be outside.  I am sure I will find things to do inside.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day.

Cleaned and vacuum packed all the vegetables and I did some cooking.  It was a very productive day since it was way too hot to be outside.  Just kept myself busy.

Today is going to be the same weather wise so  I have not quite figured out what is on the agenda but I am sure that I will find something to keep myself busy. 

I do want to hunt down a few new recipes just to change up the routine. 

Apart from that it will be a routine day unless something real interested happens to change the direction of the day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Going to do my brocolli salad today.

Going to get some house stuff done.

Going to take a little bit of sun.

So basically a good day around the house.
