Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food on track.

I am meeting my friend today - I have not seen him for about 4 months will be nice to catch up on all that has been going on. 

I really need to get out and get some stuff for the house today even the toilet paper is running out pretty bad.... lol.  I have been soo busy lately have not kept up on the stuff running out in the house.

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/28/2016:
i will also need to "load up" on all the household essentials this weekend :)

enjoy your friend!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/28/2016:
about Trump...i feel he plays off of striking fear in people. horrible...he makes us think negatively and like everything is so bad now...and it is what it is...he may not make anything better.

he plays off of striking fear in us. in my opinion.

hollybelle on 09/28/2016:
Enjoy your day with friend. Yay for being on track!

Good morning

Yesterday was a good food day.

Another beautiful fall day.  It seems that the trees are thinking about changing their colour but have not quite made up their minds yet but definitely there is a fading of their colour.  Soon the hill of Gatineau will be multi colour and gorgeous.

I am expecting a call from a good old friend. 

Food today is to be determined but it will be my regular healthy eating habit.

Wishing you all a great day.

Our trees will probably turn a month after yours :) excited for the Fall and fun times with my friends and family.

puddles on 09/27/2016:
Yes I love to drive through NY during the fall.

grannyannie on 09/27/2016:
Well done! Have a great day and enjoy the colours on the trees.

hollybelle on 09/27/2016:
Fall temps here - but leaves don't promise much this year. It's been so dry brown leaves are already falling off and the grass is pretty brown, too. We'll see if it gets better.

Good morning

Yesterday was good but could have been better.

Out today with brother regular Monday breakfast.

No big plan apart from that just getting some stuff done around the house again.  I am planning on making my soup today when I get back.  I always love to keep some in the fridge.

Wishing you all a great day and a great week.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/26/2016:
yes...always good to have veggies on hand...when i don't have any cooked veggies in my fridge...i have a LOT more trouble staying on track i've realized. it's almost a MUST for me in order to stay on track...

bad days can be fixed / averaged out :)

grannyannie on 09/26/2016:
I'm sure you didn't overdo. Tomorrow is another day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day.

Today going out for lunch with friend and also going to one of our local cheese factory to pick up some cheese.  Nice sunny but cool day - definitely a light jacket day.

Have a great day.

Well done. Have a lovely day.

Donkey on 09/24/2016:
Love those light jacket days. They can't get here soon enough for me. I hope you have a good day -- sounds like a lovely time with your friend.

hollybelle on 09/24/2016:
No jacket needed here - Whew! 90+ degrees still in KY. We are getting a cool down on Tuesday, though - Fall is coming!

Horn_of_plenty on 09/25/2016:
OMG...keep me OUT of that cheese factory. No good for me....!

I hope you had a nice time!

Good morning

I am back to my routine as of today.  The weekend was definitely a challenge but the worst part was actually have wine and drinks not the food.  Since I enjoy my ceasor drink it is the high salt content of the clamatoe juice that kills me.  I definitely have water retention right now but that will wear off in the next few days. 

It was great weather at the lake and also being unplugged for the full weekend not even cell phone accessibility.  wow

Up early this morning and I have my cabbage soup already all done and it will cook for a good part of the morning and that will be my fall back to food.  The rest of the food for today is to be determined since I have to get some groceries done.

Did do a lot of walking at the lake but it was leisure walks nothing very serious but I guess it all adds up in the end.   My s-i-l has a dog so we took the dog for long walks.

The leaves have not started to change yet but probably soon since the weather is getting cooler.

Hope all is good will all of you guys and I wish you all a great weekend.

grannyannie on 09/23/2016:
Yea, I find that if I drink any alcohol I lose any willpower and eat more, plus the calories in the alcohol.

Glad you enjoyed your time at the lake!

puddles on 09/23/2016:
The food was not the problem had very little just small portion I mean really small.

hollybelle on 09/23/2016:
Yay! for getting back on track and having a good time last weekend.

puddles on 09/23/2016:
Thank you.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/23/2016:
i also notice salt retention in myself these days - when i consume a lot of salt i am definitely swollen in the AM...which makes sense why my pants were tight today...had a lot of salted / vinegared veggies last night from Subway (i am sure you know the restaurant). was good though - especially after sweating at the gym.

Good morning

Yesterday another good day.

Hockey game was great they did not win but I can sure see the improvement and abilities he has developed since his last season.  Looking at him play you can see the love he has for the game and the effort he puts into playing as hard as he can.  Just too cute to look at this little guys. Sometimes they look a little bit like Bamby on the ice and then back up and at it again. Anyway as a grandma I could go on and on and on but that will be the end of my reporting on the game.... lol  

Food was good was a little hungry in the evening and decided to have a cup of broth and that did the trick just before I went to bed.

This morning is regular Monday get together with brother and s-i-l breakfast.  Tomorrow I leave for the cottage for 3 days that will fun probably a little of indulgence in the mix there but that is ok everything else is on track will just cope with it at that time and upon my return.

Food today to be determined.

Wishing you all a great day.

Bambi on ice - good mental picture of young hockey players! Much success today!

grannyannie on 09/19/2016:
I can relate to going on and on about grandkids! Easy to do. Enjoy the time at the cottage, Fran.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/19/2016:
I would so enjoy it too :) to watch the kiddies play. i have a friend who has a FIVE YEAR OLD...playing FOOTBALL! it must be really cute to watch also.

Good morning

Yesterday another good day.

Going to my grandson's first hockey game today.  A little colder then going to his soccer game.  Going to go freeze my ass on the arena bench... lol that is ok I get to see only a few of his games since I am away during the real important games later on.  Always enjoy giving him the support of having extra people cheering him on.

Food plan for today undetermined as of yet but will be reasonable.

Hope you all have a great Sunday.

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Today rainy day and since I knew this I slept in till 9:00am wow that is really late for me but felt good when I got up definitely will not need a afternoon nap today. 

Food for today not too sure yet but there will be a salad, probably some of my soup and of course protein somewhere in there either with soup or with salad.  Easy stuff.  I really try not to concentrate on what I eat all the time as I did before.  It is simply the fact of providing my body with food and good food and filling food.  Very important to me is that it taste good and that my taste buds are pleased with the outcome of whatever I make then I do not miss all of the old trigger foods.

Well that is enough about my day - wishing you all a great day enjoy.

Horn_of_plenty on 09/17/2016:
Yes, you have definitely changed your lifestyle & eating habits a ton since you joined here :)

hollybelle on 09/17/2016:
Yes, it is very important to me that I enjoy what I eat so that I don't go in search of fulfilling foods later. I try not to obsess over every little piece of food, too. Got keep it simple for me!

grannyannie on 09/17/2016:
Yes, food has to taste good or you'll never stick to your plans. I make a food plan for each day, works best for me but we aren't all the same. Have a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was another good day.

Breakfast out was good ordered my regular breakfast egg/bacon.  Got back around 2:00 so did not get hungry again till about 8:00 and since I had started in my slow cooker my cabbage soup before leaving in the morning I had a 2 cups of soup in the evening (always use a cup for my soups find it easier to handle then a bowl)... lol  no spills in the living room.

Today back to my regular routine and will probably have more of my soup and cook some porc tenderloin for my protein will be good with the soup mixture.  If I have anything else maybe a salad it is definitely to be determined for the rest of the day.

We are having a beautiful sunny but cool day - ideal Fall day.  Really enjoy this weather.

Next week I have decided to go out to the cottage for a few days now that will be a challenge because I will probably have a few drinks... a few... lol  When I get together with my S-I-L we always over indulge her with her martini and me with my ceaser.... lol what the hell we only live once... lol  

Wishing you all a great day.

hollybelle on 09/16/2016:
I like to eat soup in a big cup with a handle - it's really a bowl with a handle - I guess it's a soup mug kind of thing. Enjoy you time out with SIL.

grannyannie on 09/16/2016:
Sounds good! I also like using a soup mug.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 09/16/2016:
yes i like indulging too...but seem to mostly regret it? i think when i drink...i eat too much more!? lol...yes, sometimes it worth the indulgence especially when we balance it out throughout the week.

OhioRaven on 09/16/2016:
That Zero soup was a Great idea. Have a Good time, Puddy
