Good morning

Yesterday was a good day with food and water.

Another sticky day today.  We need a good storm to cool it down.  I really have not much to do today except some inside stuff which I am quite happy to remain inside in weather like today.

Tonight my grandson has a soccer game not sure if I will attend it all depends on how I feel later.  It is only at 7pm so maybe by that time it will be more pleasant outside.

Food for today is undetermine for right now.

Wishing you all a great day.

yep, remaining inside is often the best medicine ;) enjoy the fine indoors weather F...


grannyannie on 07/13/2016:
Good job on the food. Humid weather is very draining.

Hot here in the northeast as well. The start of a 3 day heat wave.


OhioRaven on 07/14/2016:
We finally got some rain with storms but it did cut the humidity. Have a good soccer game.

Good morning

Yesterday food and water intake was great.

Had a wonderful dinner with my bother and s-i-l.  They brought this new salad a Buck Choy Nappa Salad it was absolutely wonderful.  She is really into salads for during summer and always hunting for new recipes to try and my brother and I are quite willing to be the testers of her finds.  This one is definitely a keeper just like her brocolli salad last week.  I have to wonder what she will come up with for the next time... lol

Today is just a clean up and a few house chores nothing much.  We are having a heat wave for the next few days plus thunder storm along the way.  Humidity will be very high and that means a lot of inside time.

That is about all for me for now - wishing you a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day.

Finding it hard after my few days of being out of my routine.  It is hard mixing social life and routine when you are trying to keep your food plan on track.

Tonight I am having company over for dinner and that will be ok since I am the one cooking and that is the key to it all.  Dinner will be safe and still be a very nice dinner for company but low on all the carb, fats etc etc. 

Finally a nice sunny day is in the forecast. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Definitely harder when socializing! I'm sure your healthy dinner will be appreciated by your guests. Have a good day.


grannyannie on 07/11/2016:
Very difficult when socializing or traveling! Keep up the good work.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.

We are having another rainy day.  No plans for today well actually I have to get some stuff ready since I am having company for dinner tomorrow night so I have to get some laundry done and clean off my BBQ again.

I also have to clean and put away all my vegetable I got yesterday - vacuum pack and in the fridge if I want them to last.  I have found that I can extend the life of them in doing this and it works fine and also quick for when I decide to do my cooking. 

My grandson's soccer game was cancelled due to weather after the first 20 minutes.

That is about all that is going on at this end of the world.  Wishing you all a great day.  Still on my coffee right now.

Good morning

All is back to normal now back home and back on track. 

We are having a rainy day was suppose to go to my grandson's soccer tournament but it will probably be cancelled and if it is not I will not attend in the rain.   I will see how the morning develops.

I also need to do some groceries today at one point either I just pick up for the day or do the entire thing depends on the soccer tournament and weather.

Had such a great time with my sister in law at the cottage. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Dinner went real well amazing how I cannot eat like I use to plus I am pleased that I have to leave stuff on my plate.

Here is the recipe for the BROCCOLI SALAD

6 cups broccoli or cauliflower

1 1/2 cups (6oz) grated cheddar cheese

1/3 cup chopped red onion

1 1/2 cup of Mayo or Miracle Whip

3/4 cup sugar or 1/2 cup splendra

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

3 tbsp cider vinegar

12 bacon strips crumbled

Combine mayo, sugar and vinegars add to above mixture refrigerate for 4 hrs.

Will stay good in fridge for up to one week.

It was real delicious and real filling no wonder we only needed salad and steak.

Today is a quiet day a few little clean up around the house

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_of_plenty on 07/05/2016:
Yes, the broccoli salad sounds like it may have hit the spot even better than the steak! ;) haha.

I am glad you were able to leave stuff over on your plate - that's always an obstacle for me!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Today I am getting ready for my company for a BBQ tonight - Steaks and large Brocolli salad that my sister-in-law is bringing over and they said that with the steak and the salad it would be enough.  Nice to have guests that are health concious.  This salad is suppose to be very filling so I will report back tomorrow on how it was. 

I would like to wish Happy 4th of July to all americans on this site and hope you enjoy your day of celebrations.

Take care.
