Good morning guys

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.

I am going to clean off my patio area again - so much dust on everything.  Everytime they cut our grass such a mess but it is also because I have neglected it in the pass week.

It will be just a relax day on the patio after I get that done.  I will BBQ some of the meats I got yesterday and store in my freezer so that I can just use it in portions.  Easier that way then starting the BBQ everytime I want to cook a piece of meat. 

Today will be a nice sunny day but rain is called for on Sunday  might as well take advantage of the nice day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning guys

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Got all my errands done and enjoyed my meet up with a friend for coffee.  Always nice to get out of the house.

Weighed myself this morning and it is still sticking to 215 I might just be on a small plateau but will not complain I have had a great ride up to now.  This wieight feel good and that in itself is a good feeling so I stick at this for a little while it still feels good. 

Next week will go my travel agent to see if they can get me a better deal on my flight - sometimes they have some deals we do not know about and if not I will book online.  I have decided that the beginning of August will be a great time to go to Paris and that is what I plan to do.  Now that will be a challenge since I remember all the good stuff that I love about Paris and all the sidewalk cafe.  I enjoy having something to look forward to.  

Today I need to go out to pick up some other specials I have seen in my flyers and then the rest of the day will be a me day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Fran

All sounds good Fran. I hope you have a nice day!


ohioraven on 06/26/2015:
Good to hear you're getting out of the house. You need to stop and pick me up on your way to Paris. I got a vacation in August.

puddles on 06/26/2015:
lol Raven - I guess it take getting out of the house to its limit when you leave the country lol. I will meet you in Paris Raven. Salut mon ami.


grannyannie on 06/26/2015:
Good luck finding a deal, Fran! I enjoyed Paris but am partial to the medieval villages in France.


hollybelle on 06/26/2015:
Sounds great! Momentrily hanging on to a certain # on the scales - no big deal - it will happen.

Good morning

Yesterday was another good day food and water.

Going out for coffee with a friend at one point this morning that is why I am so early posting.

Got so much done yesterday I could not believe it.  I got a surge of energy late in the morning and it kind of ran out around 3 pm.  I had a nap and slept a little too much so I was up for a good part of the night.  I knew it when I went for my nap but I could not keep my eyes open. 

Hoping to get the patio cleaned up again today since they come and cut the grass every Thursday and they are messy when they cut our grass.

I seriously looked into the flights and the VRBO rentals in Paris and will make my decision soon.  I know I have to stick around for another two weeks or so because my grandson's birthday is at the beginning of July.  So mid July would be great but I really would not mind beginning of August that would bring me to half way to my departure for the Winter.  I tend to get restless staying home. 

Anyway that is about all that is going on for now wishing you all a great day.

You're doing well, Fran. I take advantage when I get that surge of energy and ambition and get a lot done. Will you be visiting Paris in the winter?

puddles on 06/25/2015:
No Annie probably this August. I spent my Winters in Myrtle Beach SC. This trip would just get me out of the house for a while and keep me busy.


Umpqua on 06/25/2015:
Wow, I'm excited you're considering a trip overseas. I've had great luck with VRBO, it's how we found our recent place in Puerto Rico. Keep us posted on your plans!

puddles on 06/25/2015:
Thank you I have been using VRBO for years and have been very satisfied.


ohioraven on 06/25/2015:
Enjoy your Coffee. What the check is a vrbo and where do I get one.

puddles on 06/25/2015:
VRBO = Vacation Rental by owner it is on line just do VRBO.com


hollybelle on 06/25/2015:
I am envious of a productive day at home!!! I have used VRBO a lot and we also have had good luck in many locations. Yay for a trip!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Had somewhat of a productive day yesterday but definitely could have done more.  Today is a national holiday in this Province Quebec so everything is closed.  I could just go across the bridge to Ontario and do things there if I so wish and that might just be a plan.

I have been getting my grocery list done for the end of the week and getting a little boring  I need to find some new stuff that will be more interested and appealing without touching any trigger foods.   I am starting to find that eating is more of a chore now then a pleasure which was the way I use to look at food.  

I think I might just need another little holiday away from home.  I have been back for 3 months and getting a little restless.  I should go on a road trip.  I have been getting all my travel alert e-mails with all the specials and feel real tempted to escaping for a little while.  I guess this is the joys of being retired when you can just pick up and go somewhere.  I will let you know what I am planning to do.

Well this all for today wishing you all a great day.

Fran

Have you checked out Cooking Light magazine? Most of their recipes are available online and you can search by ingredient and find a great selection of recipes. I've subscribed for years and it's taught me a lot about preparing tasty but healthy food. I hope you enjoy your day!


ohioraven on 06/24/2015:
Take your Brother fishing.

puddles on 06/24/2015:
Actually I was thinking of going across the pond (Paris) for two weeks. Still have to check it all out. Just wish I did not always have to travel alone.


grannyannie on 06/24/2015:
Lots of variety will keep you from getting bored of your diet. And I understand the need to travel - we do it often!

puddles on 06/24/2015:
Yes I am a bit of gypsy find it hard to stay home. Always nice to meet up with different people and different cultures. Since I am alone it puts me in contact with a variety of interesting people.


Maria7 on 06/24/2015:
Re: Road trip...hoping weather is much cooler your way than here. :-D

puddles on 06/24/2015:
Yes it is I was watching the weather in SC and glad I was not there at this time Maria

Good morning

Yesterday all was good food and water on track.

Had a wonderful time at breakfast time.  It is always nice to go over the past week with my brother and I am so looking forward to him taking his retirement later this year.

The rest of the day with errands and my regular stuff but kept busy.

We are having rain today so have not figured out what I will do.  Just got up and having my coffee.

Wishing you all a great day.

It sounds like you're having a nice week so far. I understand your frustration with the plateau, but looking at your chart it doesn't look like a plateau at all :) Hang in there!

puddles on 06/23/2015:
Yes I am. Thank you. I have been quite successful at sticking to my system it just seems that the last pounds are so much harder to loose and I know that this is usually the case at the end.


ohioraven on 06/23/2015:
Your gonna have to start a Breakfast Club and invite everyone.

puddles on 06/23/2015:
Sounds like a great plan Raven.


Mistyrose on 06/24/2015:
It a good feeling when your day goes well

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water on track.

Going out for my regular Monday breakfast with family and to catch up onthe past week.

We are having a beautiful sunny morning all is good.

I seem to be stuck at the 215 island like Maria would say. lol  I look forward to paddling myself off to another island.  I know in time it will all work out just keep doing what I am doing. 

Nice to see some older members come back.

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Yes, don't give up. You may be right on the edge of getting past the hump.

puddles on 06/22/2015:
I am not the give up kind of person. It will work itself out.


ohioraven on 06/22/2015:
We both need to raise our activity levels. Ha-ha.

puddles on 06/22/2015:
i think I just have to wait it out Raven.


grannyannie on 06/22/2015:
We all hit plateaus and they are frustrating. Just hang in there.

puddles on 06/22/2015:
Yes. I really don't mind because all going really good I just have to do what I am doing and things will start doing down again. It is temporary and that is what I tell myself. Not going to worry about it since I am not doing anything to cause a stop of weight loss. I really thin it is my body taking a break.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/22/2015:
Sounds like a nice way to start the day with the family :)


Mistyrose on 06/22/2015:
Your right it is temporary. Sometimes our body take time to catch up to our healthy eating and show a loss. You have a positive attitude.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.  I seem to be able to put down 5 glasses but that seems to be my limit.  That is good better then before if I can be consistent.

I accomplished so much yesterday got a lot of the things I had been putting off done and I will get a few more things done today also.  I felt productive.

The scale has not moved but that is ok since I have loss some this month and it all feels good.  It is a slower pace then in the beginning but maybe that is how it is suppose to be.  My body will loose at its pace as long as I do what I am suppose to do. 

Yesterday was a nice sunny day and we are back to another rainy day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Five glasses of water is better than none. As of now I'm trying to stop only drinking Pepsi to drinking water.

Good morning

Yesterday my food and water was good.

Not too sure what today will bring but it is sunny and definitely worth being out and about. 

Thank you for all your comments yesterday.  I would do gardening but all I have here is my little patio and really it is not big enough for more than one flowing pot so that I have some colour and something growing for the Summer.  I find it has been had to find a new soical club after being away from this area for 17 years.  My girlfriend are still all working and married so they have more plans then I do.  I have to admit I do find the fact to doing things alone all the time is the boring part of it all.  Anyway will have to adjust.  I always find it easier when I am away during Winter. 

My eating routine is still very good and I seem to have that down path and find it easier every week.

Wishing you all a great day.

Fran

Try gardening.


grannyannie on 06/18/2015:
Read a good book? Any cultural things around where you live? Hike, ride a bike?


Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/18/2015:
Wishing you a great day too :)

I know what you mean by boredom...even my moring/evening commute gets boring! And when i'm almost at work these days, I debate taking a different street for a few blocks...but always decide it's dumb because the lights usually slow me down by just a few minutes...LOL...

yeah, its a GOOD THING to sometimes change things up....routine can def get BORING! :)


GottaDoIt on 06/18/2015:
I'm also fighting boredom in a new place and my job doesn't start until August. Reading has helped. Also, starting this eating change has helped. Sometimes it only takes a small change to break the monotony.


hollybelle on 06/19/2015:
When I'm feeling bored or tired of the routine in the warmer weather I try to go somewhere outside with lots of people like some of the free concerts we have in our downtown here or some of the community activities like Free Fri Flicks in one of our parks. DOn't know if you have similar things available, but whatever you do - have a good time!
