Good morning

Yesterday was good on the food but water was super low.  Will have to do much better with the water today.

Dinner went real well and I even got beautiful flowers as a gift.  Always nice to have fresh flowers in the house especially at this time of the year when the weather is a little bit cloudy and rainy.

Going to see a play on Saturday another night out but will not have any eating issues with that and that is a good evening when I can pre-eat and then go out. 

I got a real good night of sleep and even got up late.  Dishwasher is going and I am just having a nice coffee trying to get my day going.

Wishing you all a great day

Sounds like a nice day! Enjoy your coffee! :-) Always nice to get flowers. :-)

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day for food and water still at 5 glasses - still working on it.

I am looking forward to my company for dinner.  Anytime I can have company for dinner is nice because eating alone all the time gets to be boring plus I get to use the dining room table which I don't do when I am alone. Good old TV tables - I know that is not exactly the perfect thing to be doing and should make an effort to get back to eating at the table.

We are getting snow and rain again and in two days they are forecasting 15C and 19C really unusual weather it seems it just can't make up its mind to be Winter or Summer. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning DD pals

Yesterday was a good day for food and water was 5 glasses - don't know when I will be able to get it back up to 8.

Accomplished a lot yesterday - still getting things done in the house little by little I will get it all done.  I guess when I left last December I must have said I will do it when I get back - I don't think I will do that next Winter when I leave because it sure has kept me busy since my return.

My friend is coming over for dinner tomorrow night.  Will be interesting to do some entertaining again.  I am looking forward to seeing him again. 

The weather is finally warming up the weekend will be in the teens but some rain.  I am looking forward to going out on the driving range. 

That is it for me have things to do today again and have to go to the store and get some last minute items.

Wishing you a great day.

Fran

Umpqua on 04/08/2015:
The driving range sounds like fun. Do you golf? I did a bit way back in high school and college and my boys are interested so I think we'll take them to the driving range when our weather warms up. Have a good one!

puddles on 04/08/2015:
Yes I do but I am a terrible golfer but enjoy the game. There is just something about swinging at a ball as hard as you can lol. I am hoping that end of April or really early May the range will be open here.

Hope you have a nice dinner with your friend.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water also 6 glasses.

I got back on the scale this morning to see if it was 226 and it is a solid 226 since it is the same again today.  Sometimes I am not quite awake when I get on the scale in the morning and yesterday was one of those.  It was a wonderful surprise the second time I got on.  Time to move on to my next week now and do what I have to do.

I am having company over on Thursday and planning an easy dinner and a safe dinner.  All the basics. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water low again - really having a hard time bring my water back up.

Today was my weigh-in day and the scale moved down 3 lbs.  I am glad it has started moving again.  Last time the scale moved was on March 24 I hope this little plateau I was on is over but we will see. I am happy to be in the 20s now.  It always feels good to change number.

My brother is suppose to pop in today I have not seen him since December and on Thrusday I am having a friend over for dinner.  Enjoy more having people over then actually going out for dinner to somebody elses place.  Its all about control.

Anyway today is a good day and wishing you all a good day.

Fran

PS - I wrote this real early this morning and after I decided to go back to bed and finish my night sleep.  When I woke up I thought I would get back on the scale and realize that I either read it wrong or there was an additional loss. But it read 226.  I will keep it and see if I will maintain it to my next weigh-in.

Umpqua on 04/06/2015:
Awesome work, Fran, congratulations on the loss!!

puddles on 04/06/2015:
thank you.


grannyannie on 04/06/2015:
Well done!

Thank you.

Scale movement is always exciting!! Congrats! I know plateaus can be frustrating but it's good you didn't let it derail you.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food but water is low again.

I went to my son's and did real good had my salad and one backed potatoe but did not eat the peel and they had cooked a ham so had some ham (it was a little salty). 

I was away for my birthday so they had a cake for me I had a sliver of cake just to say I had a piece.  I am quite happy with the results of the night out.  I stayed on track.

Today will relax - wishing you all a good day and a Happy Easter.

Good morning all

Yesterday was very good food and water 4 glasses again a low day with the water.  It is hard to get it back up to my 6 to 8 glasses.

Today I am going over to my son's place for dinner.  I am just having an easy relax morning.   The only thing is today I have to keep myself on track.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning all

Yesterday was a real good day food and water was up to 5 glasses.  I am getting there again with the water.

I got all my groceries done yesterday.  I did the 3 stores and manage to spend about $200. to get my cupboards back up to normal.  Amazing how all the little things add up.  It is good that I took advantage of all the sales.  My first month back is always more expensive then my regular monthly food bill.  I am happy that I only have to buy food for one and not a family of four. 

Tomorrow I go over to my son's for dinner.  I am not to sure what is on the menu but will try to keep it safe and not over indulge on the worst item on the menu.  My two grandkids are real rabbits and love their salad so I know there will be a big salad and that works for me also.  I have never seen kids go crazy over salad like them.  I always make a ceasor salad when they come over and we are usually 5 for dinner and I make enough salad for 8 people.  They are not too crazy about many other vegetables. 

Now the next thing on my list of todo is house cleaning.  Things are moving along very well. 

My todo list is going down considering I have only been home for about a week tomorrow.  It is also getting close to the time that I have to get my taxes done for the year but that is on the list a little further down. 

Hoping you all have a great day.

museumgirl on 04/03/2015:
I find it so hard to get enough water myself. Any tips? Glad you are back home, enjoy the grandkids and their rabbit salad. Great that they eat that way, probably they will learn to like more veggies as they grow. Happy Easter!

puddles on 04/03/2015:
I have no tips about the water because for me it feel like a punishment having to drink the water. I do it because I have to and I have never found a joyful way of doing it. It is a get it over with kind of thing. lol


museumgirl on 04/03/2015:
hehehe, well that won't work for me! I'll just keep putting water bottles in the car and pretending I like it! :)


grannyannie on 04/03/2015:
I like water, my DH doesn't. I'll drink an entire litre at the gym just in one hour and 15 minutes. More when I get home. Good think your grandkids like salad. My grandkids like certain fruit and few vegetables, and otherwise junk. :(


Maria7 on 04/03/2015:
Good that you got your shopping. That is good that you know there will be salad. When Hubby and I eat out, I usually try to get that on my plate first. :-) Hope you have a good day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water was 4 glasses.

I got everything done yesterday - laundry/banking/appointments for car.  It was a very productive day.

We are having a little bit of snow this morning but suppose to clear up by mid day and then it will be very mild in the double digits. 

I am doing the grocery runs today.  I have to hit 3 different stores today in order to take advantage of the sales.  I will be in and out of home with bags because will not be able to leave the things in the car too long so I rather be safe then sorry. 

I think I might just be on a small plateau I do not have the feeling of any weight loss.  My weigh-in is Monday and I know that this is not the end of the world my body is probably taking a little break to readjust and then it will start loosing again.  At this point I will not let this derail me.  This is just part of my journey.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning DD pals

Yesterday was a good day food and still low on water.

I really have to start concentrating on the water again.  It is hard to get back to drinking water once you skip it for a few day.  Water has never been one of my favorite things to drink and that makes it easy to get away from it. 

I had a wonderful visit with my friend yesterday.  I enjoy having company over.

Today I have to get some laundry done. 

I have to go to my bank and get some stuff done there.

I have to go to my car dealer because I have some recalls and need an appointment.

So that should keep me busy for the day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Umpqua on 04/01/2015:
I'm glad you had a nice visit with your friend and are getting caught up on your chores. I hope you have a productive day!
