Good afternoon

All is good here.

I am having my dinner tonight with my brother and S-I-L and it should be a lot of fun.  I am still struggling with my plateau but life could be worst I am not complaining. 

Went to my grandson's hockey we won again he score two and assited 3.  He is doing real good.  I enjoy is games.  I am having a slightly more boring life since the weather has turn cooler.  I so hate the cold.... just can't wait to leave.

Will give you an update on my dinner tomorrow.

Have a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/14/2016:
thank you so much regarding your insight to how i am feeling today. I am not sure why i am so down about the date as NO i wasn't even attracted to him ever. I went out with him only because i thought he was a nice guy, i knew he liked me too, and thought "why not!?"...i had known him from a prior gym but never ever thought of him as potential dating material. nothing was wrong with him at all.

i am a bit annoyed at my own self for now being as confident as i could have been. It's a reminder not to come across as lacking self confidence when just getting to know someone. I kinda gave him a strange impression of me because i was acting as if we were friends forever which we aren't. acquaintances at best. just facebook friends. He liked me for my posts and body but not the true me as he didn't know me and i didn't know him.

I am glad i did give it a 2nd chance and even gladder i will not be dating him again. we just weren't a match. no similarities besides the gym in likes / dislikes. he is even more a night person while i like to do things during the weekend more during the day....ok, enough about me!

Have a nice dinner with them tonight. If i'm correct, you are cooking?

yes, when i am retired, i'll move out also to a warmer climate. under 30 years from now i am thinking! haha.

nice to have a star player like your grandson! congrats to you...always makes the game more exciting & interesting when you know that star player :-D proud grandma moment!


thinkpositive on 11/17/2016:
So great that you can go to your grandson's games. I enjoy seeing my grandchildren perform as well That is what I miss when we go to FL. Hope your dinner went well.

Good morning

Yesterday was another day on track.

 

I have to do my groceries today and hit about 4 different grocery stores love to take advantage of the sales.  I am having my brother and s-i-l over for dinner next Monday just a regular at home meal nothing fancy actually they asked if I would make my meatloaf so meatloaf it is.... lol 

 

Having company for dinner is a real bonus for me because when you live alone it is nice to sit at the table and be able to eat and have somebody to talk to.  The simple little joys.

 

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/10/2016:
I also go to mutliple stores for multiple items :) Only way. I try to save money on items that can be bought anywhere and go to specialty stores for hard-to-find things :)

Meatloaf sounds good. Good on top of cooked veggies! Yes, agreed, it's nice to share a meal with family and/or friends. And actually, I'll be sharing lunch with my dad tomorrow since we both have the day off for Veteran's Day. Mom is working. Should be nice to visit him back at home. I will also drop off a gift for my mom for her bday which is Monday :) Take care & enjoy your dinner.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day.

 

I am tired today stayed up to watch the US elections.  Definitely a change in governing Washington.  I am watching our dollar to see what the effect will be since I have to get some US cash soon. 

 

My food is good.  My plateau is holding.... lol.  I just have to accept that my body will do what it will do when it is damn ready to do something.... lol  My job on this is to stay faithfull to my food plan and keep doing the right choices and it will all iron itself out in the wash as it usually does.  Could be worst I could be gaining and that I am very grateful that it is not my situation. 

 

Wishing you all a great day.

 

Fran

PS  My grandson's won his hockey game and the first goal was for me and he made a great one.  I seem to have become his good luck charm and now feel terrible if I start thinking of not attending one of his games because he is counting on me at least until I leave for the Winter.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/09/2016:
And also you DO make good food choices and you ARE proactive in your lifestyle. So that is definite reasons that lead towards you maintaining vs. gaining. Be proud of yourself for taking control of your health & lifestyle.

It is pretty darn surprising - the election results. Let us know what happens when you convert currency! I am interested!

OMG how cute is that!? You are the good luck charm! That's real sweet...congrats to your grandson! Outstanding!

puddles on 11/09/2016:
Thank J for the kind words and yes my grandson's is the cutest. He works so hard at his game but I am the one that comes home tired at time I think I work as hard as he does. I also come home with a soar throat and my voice is raw.... lol

Good afternoon to all

I have been away for a while thought I would take a break nothing bad to report still working on my plateau to movement.  That is good news but also a little frustrating but not going to worry about it.  Staying the same is as good as loosing I would think.

 

Family dinner tonight.  Nothing else going on.  Slightly on the boring side as far as events going on. 

 

Wishing you all a great day.

Donkey on 11/06/2016:
Hang in there! I wish I had an answer. I'm approaching a plateau myself -- and right before the Cookie season -- oh, I meant Christmas season ;-)


museumgirl on 11/06/2016:
Plateaus are soooo frustrating, hang in there!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 11/07/2016:
yes, i agree. if you can at least stabilize your weight, it's more than half the battle to learning how to break into a newer, lower weight!

Plateaus have helped me greatly this year in discovering what i need in order to maintain...or lose or, unfortunately how much leads to a gain!. haha. over time, it is easier to adjust to new weights and eating. easier than crash dieting is.

enjoy your family dinner & thanks for the advice...


hollybelle on 11/07/2016:
I have come to look at maintaining as a good thing! Boring is not necessarily a bad thing. Thank in there.

Good afternoon

Great day yesterday.

I made a spaghetti sauce today of course there is meat in it but a lot of vegetable since I am a vegetable person.  Will have that tonight on spaghetti squash with some shredded cheese on top.  Wonderful dinner.

Had to go to store since I was running out of a few little things.  It is a hot day and rain 74F very unusual no wonder so many people have colds around here.  My brother and S-I-L are down with it and my friend Fred is also down with it.  Told them to stay away do not want to see them til they are completely out of the wood and then a few days... lol

Wishing you all a great day.

hollybelle on 10/20/2016:

Good morning

I had a great day yesterday enjoy those me days.

I have nothing going on today and the sun is out could possibly venture to do my errands.

Breakfast with brother tomorrow instead of today because he has a cold and wanted to take an extra day to feel better.

I do have to dig out my suitcase for my trip and bring things in from my storage instead of waiting till snow falls.

That is about it for me just a slow day no drama at this end of the world.

Life is good

Have a great day guys.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/17/2016:
I do enjoy my “me days” too. Quite necessary for probably so many people. We are having a bit of really nice weather here down in NYC. Late summer weather in 80’s for the first part of the week! wahoo!

I hope your bro feels better soon. Enjoy your breakfast with him when you do have it! When do you usually get snow? Quite soon right? By month’s end up in Canada?

puddles on 10/17/2016:
Snow varies around my area it can come in November but last year we were still playing golf in December and got snow only in the week between xmas and New Year day. Never the same but snow is late in this area.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/17/2016:
P.S. - you were so RIGHT all along...you called it on two things:

1. Don't chase that guy. This has ended & I have indeed moved on. Going on a date with someone who is genuine & I know is attracted / likes me. I think he is a nice guy and look forward to potential with him. Date will be in November the 1st weekend :-D we are both on trips till then.

2. When i would complain of my former best friend, you had mentioned things...i forget exactly...but, you were right. Something along the lines of things would change between me & her. And they did.

puddles on 10/17/2016:
I was just trying to help and tell you what I could see in these situations.

Good afternoon

This is a good relax day.  It is a slow/cloudy/rainy day perfect for doing nothing... lol.  Got up at 10:45 so unlike me but I did go to bed at almost 2 in the morning watching a movie and that could be the reason for sleeping in. 

I gave myself a facial today and intend to soak in the tub this afternoon definitely a me me me day.

Food for the day is undetermined.  I have been on the opposite side of being real hungry lately.  I am not too sure what to make of that but it is not having any effect on that damn scale.... lol   I am on a plateau again I have to wonder how long this one will last but if I stay at this for a while not as if it is a bad place to be. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon.

Yesterday was a good day.

I ordered for grand daughter her xmas gift.  She is in love with Paris ever since her teacher went and brought back little souvenirs for all her class.  I decided to convert her bedroom to a paris theme.  I ordered a comforter set with the tower on it some stickers large ones that can be removed for her walls like Oh lala and la vie en rose and a 5 foot tower.  I also ordered some special cushions by the company Marie Antoinette who are over the top European and I think they should belong in a palace but got two of does plus I found a lamp with the same theme.  Just can't wait to see her face.  She has so many sweater with the tower on it it is crazy. 

 

For today my food is undetermine and that is ok I have a lot to pick from because I made my cabbage soup yesterday.  It is great for the fall.

 

Wishing you all a great day.

Paris - so funny - we have a friend whose nephew is getting married and the bride wants to decorate with Paris theme. I found LOTS of Paris themed things. Got them a small throw blanket, a rug and two coordinating pillows. Fun.

Good Morning

Yesterday was a great day.

Going out for breakfast with a friend this morning but apart from that it will be just regular day with not much else going on.

Food for the rest of the day is still to be determined.

I have started to make the plans for my S-I-L's birthday party on Nov 6.  Another family reunion again.  It seems that my place has been the hot zone for all celebrations but that is ok since I am away for part of the year we try to do this every month while I am here.  There will be only one more reunion of the entire family and that will be xmas just before my departure.  Time is just flying by so fast.

Have a great day.

Good job. You're doing very well. Family reunions are great.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/14/2016:
Nice to know of plans already into the Fall! I like having plans coming along, always something to look forward & plan for...

Time sure flies faster when there's activities and socializing :-D Nice way to live - seeing friends & family. I'm enjoying this more also!

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a great day.

Well again this morning did not get up til 8:30 am  now that is definitely a different routine for me. 

Just got back from doing all my errands and ready for a short nap.

Food for today to be determined more tired then hungry.  I think it is the weather that helps me sleep late.  In the fall I know that I don't really feel like getting out as much as in the Summer so sleeping in does not cut into my day of outside pleasures. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/13/2016:
yeah, i feel you with the weather change and change of activity level. In the winter, I definite prefer a bit more rest & sleep in comparison with summer. I would say it's normal. Sleeping in...kinda makes sense as it gets darker in the mornings!

puddles on 10/13/2016:
I have no problem with Winter because my Summer starts over again as soon as I leave but it is the few months before my departure that just kills me.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/13/2016:
lol....ahhh true! I totally forgot. it's good that you take yourself out of the cold...it's so much easier to operate when it's warm outside!

when i retire, I will move then. I know it!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/13/2016:
or do what you do :)


grannyannie on 10/13/2016:
Yea, not as anxious to jump out of bed when weather is cooler.


hollybelle on 10/13/2016:
I always sleep better when it's cooler. I forget where you go in winter. Where is that?

puddles on 10/14/2016:
This year I will be in Puerto Vallarta.
