Hi guys

Just got back from breakfast with brother and s-i-l and my friend.  Always a pleasant time with all our crazy stories and new ones from the weekend.

Tired after the weekend I am taking the rest of the day off and having a me day and probably a nap in the pm. 

I have laundry to do and the stuff around the house to clean and just the regular stuff that needs to be done but it will all wait till tomorrow.  My suitcase has to be emptied today hate to see that on the floor in the bedroom and that might just be the only thing I get done today except feeding myself for dinner. 

Tonight I will make myself a ceasor salad probably with some tuna for protein an easy dinner.  I do have to get my vegetable into baggies and frozen in portions before I loose some of them.

Wishing you all a great day.

i have a funny story doing laundry at my parent's on the weekend yesterday! the first load i had to do 2x...bc i realized that the first time i did it without adding detergent! LOL LOL LOL...i was like...oh....i never remember adding it...and my clothes didn't smell clean from detergent...just not smelly....i knew i had to wash them again! LOL

good idea to freeze them up to keep them ready for cooking...and not spoiled :)

glad to hear the cottage 1st weekend back was nice! We are having below avg Spring temps here. Quite chilly. But i do NOT mind as i have allergies and the cold temps keep the pollen from coming out much.


OhioRaven on 05/16/2016:
I see a difference between men an women. Women have cottages. Men have cabins. I'm glad to hear you enjoy yours, Puddy. Have a good breakfast with your people.


grannyannie on 05/16/2016:
Sounds nice even if the weather wasn't good.

True, OP. Women have cottages, men have cabins!

Good morning guys

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

I am off to the cottage today so will not be posting because I do not bring any of the technology stuff there totally unplugged.  I will be back Sunday night late.   Wishing you all a great weekend and will catch up on everyone at that time.

Take care

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a great day for my food and water.

I have a few things going on today but mostly today is my packing day for the cottage eventhough we are only leaving tomorrow p.m.  I do not like to leave it all to the last minutes because tomorrow will be the grocery day in the morning.  Life is easier when there is an order in the to-do list.  I certainly have inherited my Mom's gene in that respect. 

I bought myself a new machine for the kitchen yesterday. I have been seeing this on TV about making zucchini look like spaghetti noodles and this machine does several other things that makes vegetable more interesting and new uses.  I tried it last night and it is absolutely wonderful - did the zucchini with spaghetti sauce with a little cheese on top it was really nice instead of using pasta.  This weekend I will use cauliflower grated and use it as rice with seasoning/veg to put under our kebobs.  I enjoy trying new stuff.  

Well that is about it for me as you can see not too much of a stressful day around my house.  

Wishing you all a great day.

Fran

I also LOVE order & planning in all aspects of my life, almost. at least the aspects that involve other people - i do like to know the plans!

Oh cool! You bought the spiralizer / vegetti! i should get one of those too! You are learning all the tricks. I totally want to make cauliflower rice too...i think i may try to find it already grated....i should cook more....such good ideas out there that i could try if i weren't so lazy!

puddles on 05/11/2016:
Cooking is fun because you can invent new things to do. Buy grated Cauliflower come on J. While I wait for dinner to cook I usually do my veg for the next day and bag them so that they are all ready just in case I am super hungry the next day then everything is ready to go and I do not start munching on stuff. Just a thought I would pass on to you...


grannyannie on 05/11/2016:
I'm a big fan of to do lists and packing ahead of time. I've seen that machine where you use zucchini like spaghetti. Very healthy.

puddles on 05/11/2016:
It is real nice. Last night I dumped it into my pan but tonight I will use my basket and steam it and see how I like it that way. I always like to have option as to what my food looks like and this machine gives you that option. I want to try sweet potatoe next time and use that in the spaghetti or linguini shape and see what that is like.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/11/2016:
Yes thank you so much for the tip on what you do....sounds like my cup of tea YEAH :)

Good morning guys

Sunday dinner was wonderful and we had so much fun with all my family here.  The kids amaze me they come up with the funniest conversation at the table.  For 7 and 9 year old kids they definitely have their opinions... lol.  The funny thing about it all is that sometimes they make more sense then we do.... lol.

I did well for the past few days and now a new week as started and have a lot to get ready before Thursday since we leave for the cottage.  It will be the clean up weekend since the weather is going to be rain great time to clean up so that we can take advantage once the nice weather starts. 

I have a few errands today and that is about it.   I will find relax time today.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

This will be a shor entry I have a lot of stuff to finish up for my company today and would really live to actually have this afternoon on the relax mode for a few hours before everybody gets here.

Wishing all Mothers a great day today.

I also am getting used to planning in "relax" modes. Boy do they do a person right! I have to say, especially in terms of dieting, when i'm able to rest more & not run around like a madman, I always have an easier time dieting / eating less calories.

Happy Mom's day!

Good morning

 

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.  I got on the scale this morning thinking I was down and yes I was 1lb less.  Will be fun to break the 200 barrier to the 190s.  It really surprises me because this week has been a busy eating out but at the same time I have been really careful not to pick the tempting things on the menu and I guess it work out to my advantage.  It is really nice to see the scale moving again. 

I need to get out today and to the last errands for my dinner tomorrow night for my family.   I have to pick up the dessert today I always leave that part to the last minute because I could be tempted to have a taste.... lol  self control is something I will probably never overcome.  The advantage to all this is that I get to know my limitations as to what I can and cannot do.  The longer I am on this the better my choice become and the more easily I can resist some temptation.

So much for that... Wishing you all a great day.

You'll be below 200 any day now!

puddles on 05/07/2016:
It look like I am going in the right direction slow but surely I will get there - My initial goal was to loose 84 pounds and then i changed the goal weight so I feel good about it. Your help along the way is greatly appreciated.


grannyannie on 05/08/2016:
Support from others going through the same thing is very helpful. I was stuck back in 2011 when I was trying to be ideal weight for my 60th birthday in 2012. So I joined DD and was at goal within a few months! I was in US size 8 jeans for my 60th.

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water

I stuck to my guns last night and had the shrimp kabob a little bit of rice and brocolli and a salad perfect dinner did not go off my routine and I was real happy about that.  It is easy when people around you are also watching what they eat.

Today have to do a few things for my company coming over for dinner on Sunday but that is about it.

Expecting a routine day for myself and hope you guys will have a great day.

Good afternoon

The past few days the food and water has been good but my allergies are driving me crazy.

Tonight I go out for dinner with a friend and his daughter in law and we are going to red lobster and that works they have dinners that are 600 cals and less so I will do a pick from that list.  It is so nice that you now have reasonable choices when you are out at a restaurant. 

Sunday the kids and my friend are coming over for dinner so the house will be full and possibly my brother and s-i-l which makes us a total of 8.   Will be a tight sqeeze around my table but it will all work out - I think it is called toetherness.... lol

That is about it just wish my allergies would ease up a bit but I know it is only for a short time until all the tree are in bloom.

Wishing you all a great day.

Do you take anything for your allergies?

Well done on the food and water.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/05/2016:
i haven't been to red lobster a LONG time but i am so tempted to go! i'd love having endless shrimp! is there endless shrimp / salad bar???

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Up early my rib was hurting because I coughed a lot so I decided to just get up and take some buckley's  yaaaacccck....  I hate the taste but it works.  My nose is also running a bit also could be alergies not sure did not think I have alergies but I will see. 

I am going to have a relax day.  I do have to go for a few things at the store but it really is not a must do I could survive without.  It all depends.  I have a craving for cabbage of all things.... my regular craving for lots of vegetable simmered in some stewed tomatoe and at the last minute put some cooked chicken for protein and just let it simmer again for a little while.  It is definitely a volume meal that is extremely low in calories.   

That is about it for me wishing you a great day.

Fran

WowZers ! Hope you get well soon. Try some SauerKraut in tomatoe sauce and ground turkey burger.

puddles on 05/03/2016:
Not a big fan of Sauerkraut. I know you love it.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/03/2016:
your veggie soup and cabbage sounds delightful! a place by me makes it similar to the way you describe yours...feel better F :)

puddles on 05/03/2016:
Thanks J.


innerpeace on 05/03/2016:

puddles on 05/03/2016:
I cracked a rib 3 weeks ago but last night it brought back some pain that had gotten better but now it is irritated.


grannyannie on 05/04/2016:
