Today I am grateful for a very warm house!


Really enjoyed my power shower! For those who live in the UK or have visited you might be familiar with what are commonly 'wimpy' showers. If you have a lot of hair like me it takes ages to rinse.  No more.  

Too tired for spin class today. Worked hard yesterday in the house, plus we've been getting up earlier than normal.  So I've been a bit short of sleep. 

Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  toast
  • L:  low fat cheddar sandwich, oatcakes and pbj
  • D:  homemade veg & lentil soup, bread, salad
  • S:  dried apricots
  • Teas and water
TOTAL:  about 1700

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

Did you get a new shower too??? I must have missed that... How exciting! Definitely catch up on your sleep! Your menu looks great today though, yummy and healthy!!

grannyannie on 03/21/2013:
Not new shower but the pressure was changed with the new system.


OhioRaven on 03/21/2013:
I always like to see your porridge for for breakfast everyday.


hollybelle on 03/21/2013:
Yay for good power on the shower! Wonderful calories.


Umpqua on 03/21/2013:
Woo hoo for the power shower! Fantastic foods, I need to try to do something with lentils, I have no experience with them and I'm reading that they're so healthy and will be easier on my tummy....maybe lentil burgers?

grannyannie on 03/21/2013:
I used to make lentil burgers years ago. In soups I just dump in some red or yellow lentils along with brown rice and all the veggies. Nice because you can a huge pot of it and eat for several days.


MzLovely on 03/21/2013:
Have a good day :):)


V on 03/21/2013:
Yayyy for shower power!!! YIPPEE :) Hope that your day was fantastic Annie <3

Today I am grateful for our new heating system and a bonus of a power shower! 
 
Workmen finished up yesterday. It was a huge job - 5 days. 

My menu plan for yesterday got messed up.  Workmen didn't finish till nearly 6. We already used up the curries that I had frozen and it would take too long to cook something fresh. So hubby made an omelette with onions, mushrooms, broccoli, and sausage. 

Haven't been able to do laundry for a week and all my gym clothes are badly in need of washing. So, since I did a cardio at the gym yesterday when Tuesday is not a normal gym day, I'm okay to skip the gym today and do my usual home workout.  

Workout: (aside from getting the house back together and doing all the laundry) 
  • 7 min video routine for triceps/arms
  • dumbbells - 3 sets of 12 - 7 routines
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • squats
  • lunges w/dumbbells
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • planks (full and alternating)
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • thigh master  
  • abs-4 routines
  • bridge (for glutes)
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/strawberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  reduced fat smoked sausage on 1 slice wholegrain w/mustard, clementine
  • S:  plain, fat-free yogurt w/fresh blueberries
  • D:  veggie curry & basmati rice, salad w/pumpkin seeds, diluted oj
  • S:  2 oatcakes w/low fat cheddar
  • Teas and water

TOTAL:  1446 

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 03/20/2013:
I'm glad they are finally done with the job, I expect you'll be busy doing laundry today! Last night's omelette sounds wonderful, hope you have a good one.


V on 03/20/2013:
Yayyy they are finally finished!! And double yayy for clean clothes :) Sorry I didn't see you post from yesterday..How rude of me not to say hello to you <3 Hope you have a good day, don't work too hard!

grannyannie on 03/20/2013:
No problem. You get very busy!


Puddles on 03/20/2013:
Glad your job is all done. Looking forward to mine being done. Getting back to normal - how wonderful. Have a great day.


Supercheese on 03/20/2013:
yay for heat!! and clean clothing lol. omelette sounded reallly good!!


getmebackto150 on 03/20/2013:
Yay for the heat being back! I think skipping the gym since you got an extra workout in yesterday to catch up on housework/laundry is a great idea! have a good one:)

grannyannie on 03/20/2013:
Didn't even plan it that way. Just thought I'd get in an extra workout since I had to be in town. Worked out well.


hollybelle on 03/20/2013:
Glad our heating job is done and I like the sound of a power shower! I can almost see one of those old Irish spring commercials, now (if you don't know what those were - this will make no sense). Good luck with all the catch-up landry.

grannyannie on 03/20/2013:
Love that shower! Can rinse all this hair in about 10 seconds! Yep, I know the Irish Spring ads. One more load of laundry and I'm done.


legcramps on 03/20/2013:
Great that they are finally finished and you have your house back!!! Have a great day today :)

Today I am grateful for feeling fit, young(ish) and healthy.  
 
Hoping the new heating is finished today! I can't use the washer till they are done. I have no clean gym clothes! And we're using electric space heaters and the gas fireplace for warmth. No hot water either. Fortunately the dishwasher heats the water itself but I have to wash some things by hand and our water comes out freezing!

I had to take the car into the garage today for its annual MOT and servicing. Because both hubby and I have our 60+ free bus pass we only put 2,000 miles on the car during the past year.  Since hubby needed to be at the house with the heating guys, I took the car in and while in town went to the gym for just cardio. 

Workout at gym:
  • 30 mins spin bike
  • 15 mins treadmill
  • 15 mins elliptical
  • 5 mins rowing machine
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/strawberries/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  post workout: 2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  2 veggie sausages on 1 slice bread w/mustard, 2 more oatcakes w/pb
  • D:  veggie curry & basmati rice, salad w/pumpkin seeds, diluted oj
  • S:  plain, fat-free yogurt w/fresh blueberries, dried apricots
  • Teas & water
TOTAL:  1590  (oops.  Think I'm addicted to oatcakes!)
 

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

getmebackto150 on 03/19/2013:
I cannot imagine going without heat or hot water in the Winter! I'll bet you will be glad when its back!!!!! Have a great day!!!

grannyannie on 03/19/2013:
They are about to switch it on!


OhioRaven on 03/19/2013:
I am always impressed with your exercise.

grannyannie on 03/19/2013:
Thanks!


Umpqua on 03/19/2013:
Wow, that's awesome that you use your car so little. In my peak commuting days I put 25,000 a year on my car! My current car only gets used for local trips and longer road trips/vacations thankfully. I hope they get the job done today!

grannyannie on 03/19/2013:
Since we are both retired we aren't using it for work. But now when we visit grandson across the country, we take the free bus. So we rarely do long drives any more. Bus, train, plane.


legcramps on 03/19/2013:
Oh my, I think i'd be huddled in the corner, bundled up with every imaginable blanket in the house. Just let me out when the heat's back on!

Have a great day today :)

grannyannie on 03/19/2013:
LOL. We had the gas fireplace on and electric heaters, so I was toasty. All done now!


legcramps on 03/19/2013:
Darnit, did I do it again? I meant "Have a great night" :)

grannyannie on 03/19/2013:
LOL! Thanks!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!!  
 
Today I am grateful for a peaceful day with a good book - a mystery - hubby is off to the city for the day to be a good nephew to his elderly uncle. 

Finishing housework, but otherwise a rest day. I WILL stick to calories this week.  Next high cal day is Saturday when we have guests for dinner. 

I know we shouldn't be slaves to the scale, but my muscle gain is not sufficient to make a higher weight okay with me, although I do have a LOT of muscle.  I can look in my full-length mirror and also feel how much weight I need to lose to be comfortable, and right now it agrees with what the scale says. I know that some time in the future I won't need the scale at all because it won't be an accurate reflection of a healthy and fit size for me. I'll just know.

Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  chicken breast sandwich on whole grain w/extra light mayo, clementine
  • S:  plain, non-fat yogurt w/fresh blueberries
  • D:  veggie curry & basmati rice, salad w/pumpkin seeds, diluted oj
  • S:  small milk chocolate bar or banana (need to choose banana as I chose the chocolate last night!)
  • Teas & water
TOTAL:  1427

 

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

Puddles on 03/17/2013:
I am happy you are having a rest day. Make it a good one. We have to take advantage of those day and pamper ourselves.

grannyannie on 03/17/2013:
Always have to work in at least one of two rest days a week to recover our poor muscles, etc. :)


hollybelle on 03/17/2013:
I took it easy on my muscles with a shorter ride yesterday. Have a good one!


OhioRaven on 03/17/2013:
HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY. AND THAT AIN'T NO BLARNEY.

grannyannie on 03/17/2013:

Today I am grateful for where I live.
 
No workmen this weekend. Housework.

Didn't get a chance to do my home strength routine yesterday, so did it this morning as I normally do on Saturdays.
 
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  2 veggie sausages on 1 slice bread w/mustard, grapes
  • S:  plain fat-free yogurt w/fresh strawberries
  • D:  veggie curry & basmati rice, salad w/walnuts, diluted oj
  • S:  banana, 2 oatcakes and low fat cheddar (or I might exchange the 90 calorie banana for a 95 calorie chocolate) 
  • Teas & water & diluted juice
TOTAL:  1452

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

Kati on 03/16/2013:
Lovely breakfast there, Annie :)

grannyannie on 03/16/2013:
My usual, Kat. :) Yum. And keeps you from being hungry for several hours.


Tangalyn~ on 03/16/2013:
hope ur day is a lovely one :)


Puddles on 03/16/2013:
Have a great day Annie


hollybelle on 03/16/2013:
Did the workmen get finished? Hope so - what a trial to have them around. Good food. I must take notes! LOL!

grannyannie on 03/16/2013:
Workmen come back Monday plus an electrician and plumber. Should finish by Tuesday. It's worth it though, just like it was worth not really having a kitchen for 5 weeks in order to get a new one!

Today I am grateful for my husband's cooking!
 
New heating system is taking longer than expected. But it looks like we won't have to go through the weekend without heat and hot water. The workmen will come back on Monday. The laundry is piling up though as my washer and dryer had to be moved to the garage while furnace is being installed in my utility room. Not as big a thing as it sounds as they are British sized appliances. 

Grocery shopping yesterday - all healthy except for a bag of single serve packets of baked crisps (chips) and small milk chocolate bars at 95 cals. Asking hubby to hide the chocolate and give me one when I ask for it. Although he has a tendency to forget where he hides things! 

The spin bike instructor told us the spin bike at the gym only gives a calories-burned count by counting revolutions of the wheel. So when you are peddling with high resistance or standing or doing jumps those calories can't be calculated. I watched the calorie counter while I was doing the bike today and found this to be true. On low resistance and high speed the calories added up quickly. But more calories are actually burned doing the standing and jumps. So I'd estimate that instead of 400 calories burned in 30 minutes it's actually more like 600. It certainly feels like I'm burning 600!

Workout at gym:
  • 30 mins spin bike
  • 15 mins treadmill
  • 5 elliptical
  • 5 rowing machine
  • 3 sets of 12 on 6 resistance machines
  • cables/pulley for triceps - 3 sets of 12
Workout at home: (might do this afternoon or might wait until tomorrow)
  • 7 min video routine for triceps/arms
  • dumbbells - 3 sets of 12 - 7 routines
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • squats
  • lunges w/dumbbells
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • planks (full and alternating)
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • thigh master  
  • abs-4 routines
  • bridge (for glutes)
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  post workout: 2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  chicken breast sandwich w/extra light mayo, packet of baked crisps
  • S:  grapes
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad w/walnuts
  • S:  plain fat free yogurt with fresh strawberries
  • Teas and lots of water
TOTAL:  1569
 

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 03/15/2013:
That's great that you are burning even more calories than previously thought. I hope your heat and hot water are back in working order today!

grannyannie on 03/15/2013:
Heat never got shut off but will be on Monday when they hook everything up. Yes, burning a lot more calories! :)


hollybelle on 03/15/2013:
Good calories and good exercise. A winning combo!


Puddles on 03/15/2013:
Wonderful routine. Keep up the good work and have a great day.


OhioRaven on 03/15/2013:
Good job on hiding the snacks, Hubby.


lolla on 03/15/2013:
I agree, you are burning 600 for sure so get hubby to get you a piece of chocolate YOU DESERVE IT!!!! Your food looks very healthy.

grannyannie on 03/15/2013:
LOL. No chocolate in my menu yet, but very soon. :)


biscottibody59 on 03/15/2013:
Excellent workout--calories burned is pretty great either way--woo-hoo!

Enjoy your weekend!

Thank goodness that you don't have to go without heat and hot water this weekend :) Dam girl you had a hell of a workout today, you are a Beast Annie!! Have an awesome weekend yourself <3

Today I am grateful for my family.

  • L:  pbj sandwich in the car, then grocery shopping
  • S:  clementine
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 03/14/2013:
Sounds lovely, Annie! Good work with exercise and foods, I see you are back on track.


OhioRaven on 03/14/2013:
Sorry to hear you didn't get your porridge.


Puddles on 03/14/2013:
That will be a nice holiday for you. I would love to go to Ireland. My grand mother is from Ireland. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 03/14/2013:
I love Ireland. Haven't been since 2006. Quite similar to Scotland with enough differences to make it worth a visit. (I have O'Brien ancestry and my hubby's grandad moved to Scotland from Ireland.)


supercheese on 03/14/2013:
hoping its not too chilly!!

grannyannie on 03/14/2013:
Heat won't go off until tomorrow. Taking longer than expected so no hot water/heat/washer dryer until late Monday!!

Today I am grateful for my stamina!

Sooo.....I've been a bit of a piggy for a few days, but at the gym today I was thinking about how it wasn't worth it. The food/drink are good at the time, but ONLY at the time I am consuming it. I'm trying to keep in mind at all times how much better I felt at 130lbs or less.

Next high cal day will be when we have our friends for dinner a week from Saturday.

They are putting in our new heating system today. Heat won't be turned off until tomorrow and will also be off on Friday. We'll use electric heaters in the mean-time and cold water, but when they are done the house will be warmer and our heating bills will be slashed. It will even be cheaper to pay for the heat AND and the loan than it is costing us now.  The loan is interest-free through the government as they are pushing for more eco-friendly and cheaper energy.

Workout at gym:

  • 35 mins spin bike - absolutely killed this machine today!!! 
  • 15 mins elliptical
  • 10 mins rowing machine
  • 3 sets of 12 on 6 resistance machines
  • cables/pulley for triceps - 3 sets of 12

Workout at home:

  • 7 min video routine for triceps/arms
  • dumbbells - 3 sets of 12 - 7 routines
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • squats
  • lunges w/dumbbells
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • planks (full and alternating)
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • thigh master  
  • abs-4 routines
  • bridge (for glutes)

Menu: and I WILL stick to my calories today! Need to get hubby to hide the oatcakes!

  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  chicken breast sandwich on whole grain w/extra light mayo
  • S: clem
  • D:  bean/veg stew on tagliatelle, salad w/walnuts
  • S:  2 oatcakes & low fat cheddar
  • Teas & lots of water

TOTAL:  1480

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 03/13/2013:
Good Attitude, Annie !


biscottibody59 on 03/13/2013:

Umpqua on 03/13/2013:
You're so right about the instant gratification. And it's worth it on occasion , as long as it's not happening all the time. Have a good one!


supercheese on 03/13/2013:
WOrkout machine!!! Thats an awesome loan. Snuggle up with the hubby when it gets cold!!

grannyannie on 03/13/2013:
LOL! Hard to snuggle if I'm doing dishes or warming up the leftovers though. :)


Puddles on 03/13/2013:
I know what you are talking about. My cheats are soo not worth it but I find it makes me more determine to do better. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 03/13/2013:
Yup, cheating is only good during the short time you are enjoying them. Then you pay dearly for it later.


lolla on 03/13/2013:
Your workouts are amazing and this is a bumpy road to a better body so hang in there and keep trying with every new day there is a new opportunity to do better!!!

grannyannie on 03/13/2013:
Yep, I'll just keep looking at the bar graph for Oct that says I averaged 128. Felt good and will feel good again.


lolla on 03/13/2013:

hollybelle on 03/13/2013:
Great workout! Your post make me think of the saying: A moment on the lips - forever on the hips! LOL! We put in a new heating and cooling system last year. It has helped. Good luck with that. Keep on your path to health. It's so easy to get off. I think my low energy is due to recent 15 lb gain! I am gonna conquer it, though!


V on 03/13/2013:
That is super cool that the gov offers interest free loans for eco friendly home improvements! Stay to your meal plan today Annie, you can do it!

grannyannie on 03/14/2013:
Thanks! Yes, I did do it!


getmebackto150 on 03/13/2013:
I TOTALLY agree with you about splurging on food and drink... It is ONLY enjoyable at the exact time... The REST of the time, I'm annoyed that I indulged... Great attitude!!! You can do this and get back to goal!!!

Today I am grateful for a world of diversity to explore!

Not a workout day. Been doing a bit of extra snacking last few days.   I guess I was feeling deprived. Been doing all the laundry today in preparation for my utility room being out of commission the next 3 days. Getting new heating system. So the house will be cold except for electric heaters. And no hot water! 

Between loads of laundry and other chores, I've been doing research on a cottage for a week in Ireland with my sister and hubby in September, and a hotel in Thailand in January for niece's wedding. NOT going to spend 2 weeks or more at the wedding hotel as the cheapest room is £155/night (about $200!). 

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  banana
  • L:  grilled cheese w/low fat cheddar and whole grain bread
  • S:  skinny cappuccino, several oatcakes, 1/2 pint of hubby's new batch of home brew
  • D:  tagliatellie with bean and veg curry, salad
  • S:  clementine, dried apricots
  • Teas & water

Probably under 1800 cals

Tomorrow:  back on track!!!!!!

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 03/12/2013:
You've been a bad girl. I've been bad too.

I think I felt late-20ish at 41, but now in mid-50s I definitely feel my age. It's a function of a few things, almost all of which I have control over. Glad you brought it up though--one more thing to push me forward!

Hope the heating re-do isn't too much of a pain!

Wow, future travels for you, how exciting! Good luck going with the heat/hot water for a few days, that's roughing it :)

Hope we aren't w/o hot water and heat for all 3 days!

Yea, this is a very busy travel year. Next year as well.

Ireland sounds so nice!! Snacking is okay....maybe means weightloss soon? Maybe? lol AW that sounds like no fun about the loss of heat. Bundle up!

Hope you found some reasonable rates. RYC I don't mind the Spring Breakers, they are alot more tamer and can handle their booze more than ANY full fledged adults, beleive it or not the mid 40's - 60's are the ones who get arrested on the beach, sad but true.LOL

Actually, I do believe you when you say the 40-60's group are worse!!
