Good evening

I am late today but all is good food and water on track

I was just getting ready for Thursday the arrival of the gang.  Apart from that nothing else.  Tomorrow is laundry day to make sure all the towels are clean - going from 1 person to 5 will definitely mean more stuff will be in use around here. 

Wishing you all a great evening.

Good Morning

Yesterday was very good food and water.

Today seems to be shaping up to be a bright sunny day so we all know where I will be - I will give you a hint there is sand... lol

Ok nothing else here for now.  I plan to behave and relax two things that I am getting real good at doing... lol

Wishing you all a great day.

Glad to hear it's sunny and that you are behaving & relaxing!


Donkey on 02/21/2016:
Oh how nice it would be to relax some place sunny (with sand) ;-) It is a gray day here today -- not that I'm ungrateful that at least it's not freezing cold. Still, to be warm would be so wonderful...

Hi guys

Just checking in - a very day food and water.

Not much going on.  I planned my meals today for when the kids will be down so that I will not have to invent things as I go along and causing me any stress with my routine.  If by any chance they don't like what is on the menu well that is definitely their problem.... lol.  I have put actually all of my son's little favorite dishes so I doubt very much that there will be any problems.  Also my now I know what the little ones like - those are my two rabbits.  I have never seen kids enjoy their salad like they do.  I always make the ceasor salad and I have to double my recipe because they are as I say Rabbits...  I am only planning the main main dinner - breakfast and lunch will be up their parents to decide what to have but I do have groceries that will fall in their normal range of choice.  Cereal, toast PB, eggs bacon etc. and lunch probably lunch meat and something so I think I have everything covered.  Being organized helps when my gang moves in...  lol The tornado as I call them... lol

Apart from that all is good.

Wishing you all a great evening.

Well done. So hard to eat right when you have visitors! I'll have a big challenge when granddaughter visits for a month summer after next.

Good morning

Yesterday was perfect food, water, weather.

I have had a real lazy week - I am not complaining.  Just unusual to veg for a week. The only thing I can see the reason is the weather just taking advantage of not running errands or doing work but soaking in the sun and the beach.  It might also be because I have only 6 weeks left and can't figure out where all the time as gone.  Time really flies even if you are not doing a lot of stuff. 

The best entertainment lately has been the US election for candidates on TV.  Everyday it seems new mud fights are started.  I so appreciate our 40-day election process and then its over - here it just drags out till you get tired that its going on.  Anyway not being a resident maybe I should not comment but its just a little bit too much for me plus it interfere with my programming..... lol.

No other news to report so I will wish you all a great day and a wonderful weekend ahead.

Sounds great! Enjoy yourself and the sun and beach. I am!

I forgot your were from Canada. Yea, we even hear all about the campaigns and debates here in Thailand. Not like this in the UK either. American politics gets really dirty!

Good morning

Yesterday was good with food and water.

It seems that holding a routine while I am away is easier then at home.  I am sure that it has to do with not having as much company over or having less plans than in my regular surroundings.  I don't find myself thinking of food or what should I cook when this person comes over or that person comes over.  Eventhough I manage well at home it is just easier having nobody around to entertain.  Yes I have my skype dinner with family but I do not have to cook for them and therefore do not have to accomodate their needs especially a few picky grandkids.... we all know the look of YACK what is that or is that what we are having for dinner.... lol.   Anyway enough about this.  It all boils down to life in respect to food is easier while I am away. 

Today is another wonderful sunny day and again sorry to repeat myself but I will take advantage of it. 

No big plans.

Read a book.

Enjoy the day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Enjoy your time ... have a nice day


Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/19/2016:
Same here, actually Fran. When away, I find an easier time at least managing my weight. I get a break, usually, from the same things I usually eat at home, and i'm occupied by the day's plans and less planning of food :) I haven't been away in awhile, but this was my experience in the past!


thinkpositive on 02/19/2016:
I wish I could say the same. When I'm away it's more like a vacation from the normal routine and more eating out. Glad it's working out well for you.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day everything under control.

We had such a storm last night - rain and high winds I actually got a little water coming through the patio door even with it closed and I could hear the wind just pounding.  Nothing substantial just a little humid this morning.

The sun is now out and I am looking forward to taking some sun the pm.  We are already at almost 60 and going up.

No big plans again today I do have to go out -  out of cream for my coffee for tomorrow morning and I need my morning coffee... lol

9 days before the kids get here I am definitely in the count down stage and so are they even more.  We are getting about a total of almost 50cm of snow in the next 3 days back home.  They are going to be glad to get out of that for a while. 

Well that is about it at this end.  Another perfect ahead of me.

Wishing you all a great day.

Sounds like a lovely day & sunshine. I have grown to also love my morning coffee very much :-) And yes, I need it with some milk for it to taste best. I also had to scramble for milk today - my boss was very late and luckily I thought this might be the case so I picked up some milk on the way at the gas station :-)

Anyways, your grandkids will love being with you & in the nice weather.


OhioRaven on 02/17/2016:
Yep ! I watched the storms on the weather channel roll through yesterday.


OhioRaven on 02/17/2016:
Have a Perfect Day.

Good morning

Yesterday was really good.

Had my skype dinner with my friend and that is always pleasant.  I made pork tenderloin with stir fry on a bed of rice really yummy used  fruit cup in its natural juice in the stir fry for a natural sweet sauce - did not use the juice because the fruit was enough to make its own sauce.  I have leftovers for today and it is always better the second day around - no cooking today.

Cloudy day but Wednesday we will be back to our normal sunny time around here.  

My grandson won his hockey tournament yesterday he was so proud of himself.  The game was 5-0 but it took till the second period to start scoring and he did the first goal and that got his team into the spirit of going.  So cute to see how into it he is.  

Still on coffee right now - do not know what I am doing today - too early to make big decisions like that yet.... lol.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning and Happy Valentine's day to all

Food and water are on track but expect it to be a little off today since I am going out for dinner.  Nothing too crazy.

It is cool today here but by Tuesday we will be back to our normal. 

My grandson is in another hockey tournament this weekend and he is doing real good - just waiting to see if they will win their final game today and win the tournament.  Sports for kids are good.

It has been a long time since the scale has moved for me.  It seems I have reach a spot that is comfortable to maintain but I will not change the numbers at the top because at one point I am sure they will start to drop again and if they don't so be it.  I am ok with this.  I know that I am aware and have to be aware of the food I eat - that is the biggest part of staying on track.  Anyway it is what it is for now.  I will enjoy it and accept it.  I am not where I want to be but I am not where I use to be and that is ok.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

I am up early and ready for the day - well after I get two coffees into me that is.  Nothing gets started til then. 

So today is a little bit of rain and cool I figure that is a perfect day for shopping - groceries and whatever else I might just wish to shop for.

Two weeks and the kids will be here.  Ya Ya.....I wrote to my grandkids and told them 14 more dodos....  I love to get them going that always stir things up for the parents.... lol  So much fun being a grand parent....  lol

Well that is about it for me - wishing you all a great day.
