Hello Lovely Girls, I did write a witty, intelligent, thoughtful, incisive, encouraging, passionate, informative and loving post. Unfortunately I lost it!!! I hope you have a lovely celebration and I will catch you tomorrow:)

Yesterday's Food

hot chocolate, porridge

fish and vegies in sweet and sour sauce with jasmine rice

dark chocolate

V on 07/04/2012:
Have a wonderful day Moogy(wait, you are probably sleeping) i will catch you later this evening, morning for you.. LUB You!


grannyannie on 07/04/2012:
Have a great day, umm...evening...or night, Moogy!

Aye, it shocks me when I visit the US now and the huge portions served of fatty/sugary/additives and so much of it being touted as healthy! It didn't help that my sister had all these leftover packets of potato chips! And ate lots of meat as well. And drank lots of beer. Hmm...wonder why I gained weight? LOL. Well, it's coming off quickly, so no complaints.

hollybelle on 07/05/2012:
I hate when I lose an entry! I hear you about begrowing up without air....I did too and I had an attic bedroom growing up until around age 15. We are spoiled in USA because everything is airconditioned. Weather here is terribly hot in the summer and we are in the middle (southeastern US)of the states. It gets so humid here. But we can't count on any kind of weather because we are in the middle it can do anything at anytime and can change at the drop of your hat! We aren't miserable, but it will be soon unless we have it fixed/replaced.

Today I am grateful for: a sunny morning, promises, people who love me
 
Hello Lovely Girls, The sun is already up and shining, it is going to be a glorious Winter day:) We are heading for 60 degrees today and they are promising a rare overnight frost tonight, may have to keep the electric blanket on:) I had a very quiet weekend, watched a little of the X Games and was a little disappointed that Shaun White was not performing but it was all excellent anyway!!
 
I have very little planned for today accepted for a little cleaning and cooking for myself. It sure is quiet around here without the children, they don't come back until Saturday and as it is only Monday, I dare say I shall be desperate to see them by then. It is mainly the angel I miss, or then again it could be the princess, who will I watch Top Model with? And the boys are soo lovely!! How do I choose? LOL I am planning on having an excellent week with my intuitive eating, now that someone who sees me everyday (daughter) has noticed that I have lost weight I am focused on keeping in touch with what my body is asking for (if you know what I mean!). I hope you girls finish off your weekend well and have a happy and healthy week ahead. Love you girls:)
 
Yesterday's Food
hot chocolate, banana, peanut butter wrap
chicken sausage, chips, peas, gravy
CCK's deep dish cookie pie

V on 07/01/2012:
I am sure that the princess, the angel and the boys miss you as well! Congrats on staying on track with the Intuitive eating. have a wonderful day Moogy! Lub YOU as well and thanks I did read your previous message :)

You're such a wonderful gran! I miss my 2 angels. Was good to spend quality time with them.

Scots are tough, but not being a Scot (only a fraction anyway) I'm a wimp! Can't handle cold.

Enjoy your week, Moogy. I'm sure they miss you you more!

Daughter's performance was lovely, thanks!


liza36 on 07/02/2012:
With a whole week without the grandkids, it will be quiet. I know you'll miss them, but enjoy a little "Me" time while you're at it.

I did find bathing suits for my trip, and can't believe I actually wore them. Not sure if I'll ever wear them again, but I'm glad I had them.

Today I am grateful for: shopping with my daughter, doing what I want when I want, having wisdom

Hello Lovely Girls, It's going to whip up to around 60 degrees today, although it is a bit cloudy now, it will clear and we shall have a wonderful afternoon:) The children are leaving around five o'clock and peace shall descend:) I am just popping on to write this before I go out. Daughter and I are driving about 40 minutes to a huge shopping centre to put toys on lay-by for Christmas, yes, they let you pay them off between now and then, they have a huge sale and she saves heaps of money:) Yay! We left it for a week since the sale started as neither of us is good in crowds, did they same thing last year and still got heaps of bargains. I shall be in the book section, nana always buys books! They are getting their own libraries slowly but surely:) My motto (well! one of them!) is "A home without books is a home without wisdom":)

Hope you girls have a great weekend and get to spend it doing things that you enjoy with people you like:) Love you girls:)

Talk about a good head start..I am sure that takes the pressure off from last minute shopping. Have a good day Moogy, Lub You


LeakingLife on 06/28/2012:
RYC: Yes for me, it wasn't about obesity, per se, until something else began to happen. And if I'm honest, my lifestyle all those years ago--elevenish--gradually degenerated to make me not feel all that healthy. Kinda like the frog that starts out in the kettle when the water is cold, then it heats up, but it's so gradual that the frog doesn't even notice he/she is about to be cooked.

I suppose very few people lose weight just because they have a fat ass--haha! They may have a fat ass, but the motivation doesn't come until they either vainly hate the way they look, feel like sh*t because they can't keep up with hubby/wife, kids or friends or have some ailment that will perhaps be improved by a change in diet and weight. Some of my experience and a bit of 2cents:-)

You've got really good grandkids (obviously) there or you get toys earlier--I doubt the latest and greatest will be in the stores here 'til right before/after Thanksgiving (near the end of November). I agree on the books--always the best bet!

I just can't applaud you enough for LOOKING and FINDING what works. As you've seen here on DDs it doesn't take much for many to simply give up. It's sad. Have great day/evening!


selina on 06/28/2012:
Wow, that's a really early start for Christmas, good for you! I like books, too, that's a wonderful idea!

My daughter is having a great time, it's nice to have the daughter of the president in her dance camp: super special treatment wherever they go!


grannyannie on 06/29/2012:
You're doing well! Good attitude about books, I've always had the same. I like to give books as gifts to granddaughters.


grannyannie on 06/29/2012:
Aye, it's amazing how quickly I can get out of shape in such a short time. Was very good for the first 10 days or so, then downhill from there.

Today I am grateful for: knowing where I came from, knowing what I am doing here, knowing where I am going

Hello Lovely Girls, Another chilly day but maybe a hint of sun. It is so unusual not to have sun for at least part of the day in Sydney it is surprising!! Daughter, the angel and myself have been out shopping this morning and my daughter was following me round the fruit and vegies section and said you have lost weight mom, I can see it around your hips. Nice! This not dieting is working for me and no stress! Yay! Definitely very slow but I wasn't losing weight at all when I was trying hard so I am grateful to have someone else notice that there is a difference:)

I have been requested to make pizza for the boys for afternoon tea/dinner tonight. I am to lazy today to make my own dough though and purchased bases!! Shocking!!! Apparently I make the best pizza in the world!! Gotta love grandchildren:) School holidays start again tomorrow and the children will be at their other grandparents for a week, daughter is looking forward to it. Is it just me or has this year flown by quicker than usual. We are already half way through 2012!! No time to waste if you have plans and goals to achieve, no procrastinating, life does fly by and you wonder where it went:) Not that I am complaining about that, I have achieved just about everything I am able to do that was within my power to achieve:) It is a nice place to be:) I hope  you girls finish of the week in champion fashion:) Love you girls:)

I am sure you will enjoy the silence for a day or two and then miss them like crazy <3 Yep you are so right about your comment, minus the pain..Not trying to hurt anyone, just making them as well as me step up and do the very BEST..Have a good day Moogy, Lub You


selina on 06/27/2012:
Wonderful to hear you are losing weight even without trying... how cool is that! Time does fly by, I can't believe it that school is over and daughter's first year of high school is finished! It was just like yesterday that she entered high school! Enjoy your quiet week without the little ones!

Yes, I feel I'm in a good place right now, full of energy. I was exercising this evening next to this young and cute thing at the gym and i was going faster and lasted longer on the eliptical than she did. it felt good ;)


Umpqua on 06/28/2012:
Nice compliment from your daughter, it's always great when others notice our efforts! RYC, I think my parents would say I'm a downright slug when it comes to relaxing compared to them ;) I do keep busy during the day but have plenty of downtime, particularly on weekends when we often choose to ride around in hubby's convertible with the boys listening to music and smelling the flowers rather than work on home improvement projects like some would say we should be doing. I suppose relaxation and pondering time is a very subjective thing!


grannyannie on 06/28/2012:
So nice when someone notices you've lost, isn't it?! Well done. Glad you are doing so well. Enjoy your day!


thenewMLE on 06/28/2012:
Congrats Moogy!! Doesn't it feel great when someone else notices? The fact that it is coming off slowly can be a good thing. I learned if it didn't get there quickly, it isn't coming off quickly!! I really am trying to look at this as a lifestyle change and making better eating choices as opposed to a strict diet. The only thing I have to be conscious of is to make the effort to "move" (see- not using the word exercise!!) to burn off those stubborn calories. I like my bike rides but when I don't ride, I climb the stairs harder or faster or I park at the far end of the parking lot and brisk walk! Enjoy your quiet time, and yes - time is flying!!! So hold on to your hat and enjoy the ride!!! Have a great week!

Today I am grateful for: the air I breath, the water I drink, the ease in which I move
 
Hello Lovely Girls, Rather overcast and chilly this morning and good grief only going to be 57 with the chance of showers!!! A real Winter day, I shall have to have my heater on all day, which I hate:( Anyhoo, I shouldn't moan too much  I am so grateful that I have a lovely home, food to eat and clean water to drink. So many people on this earth have nothing, I have a soapbox for this issue to do with corrupt governments, wars and despot leaders. So you can imagine it's a fairly large soapbox so I shall keep it under my bed!!
 
The angel did go to pre-school today, yay!, I didn't have to take her as her mother decided she would feel much better if she went and bought herself a pair of boots she has wanted for months. She has lost 28 kilos/61 over the past 18 months and can now get boots over her calves, she is very excited!! Her liver, kidneys and heart are all functioning within normal range at the moment and we are keeping our fingers crossed that they will continue to hold or improve. She still has to take a staggering 19 different medications a day to stay alive but at least we live in a country where the medical care is available and free:) I hope you girls have a healthy and happy day:)

selina on 06/25/2012:
It's great to hear your daughter is feeling well - does the weight loss help with the liver/kidney/heart health? Or did she lose the weight due to the liver/kidney/heart? I was just wondering.... 19 medications sound so awful, poor thing. Stay well and enjoy the winter!


Umpqua on 06/26/2012:
Awesome that your daughter has lost so much and is doing relatively well! Stay warm Moogy ;) (57 is downright balmy by our winter standards but I know you aren't used to it!)


selina on 06/26/2012:
Hang in there, Moogy, I'm glad to hear that your daughter is better these days.


hollybelle on 06/27/2012:
Hey - just realized I hadn't commented to your posts lately and trying to catch up! Glad daughter is feeling ok right now. I get overwhelmed sometimes when I think of the corrupt governments and people who are in need and the shame of it all since there is so much inequity on this earth. We'll both do well to keep the soapbox put away, but I keep thinking of John Lennon's song "Imagine". Through nothing on this earth will be fair until the second coming, I believe. Now, I don't really mean this in a negative way (in case my matter of fact tone doesn't come through the words on the screen) - I'm just sayin'! God bless.


LeakingLife on 06/27/2012:

Today I am grateful for: the sun shining through fog, cockatoos swirling overhead, a cat on my lap (I am typing one handed)

Hello Lovely Girls, It was a cold but sunny weekend, going for around 64 degrees today:) Nice! As I type the cockatoo's are screeching overhead making a real din and then circling round and returning, beautiful creatures but like you to know they are here!! I had a quiet weekend, except for the clearing of my lungs! Yuk! The angel and her mother are back on antibiotics, the angel for infected ears and her mother for bronchitis. I don't think we will be going out anytime soon, which of course suits my hermit leanings:)

I have my usual day today, a little cleaning, a little baking, a little reading with the angel and afternoon tea with the big kids:) I don't feel as if I have been eating intuitively lately, not thinking enough before eating and considering. I think it is difficult when you don't feel 100%, I shall get back to it seriously today. It does take a clear mind and some pondering to keep in touch with one's body. I hope you girls finish of your weekend well and will have a healthy and happy week. Love you girls:)

Yesterday's Food

hot chocolate

roast chicken, potatoes, carrots, peas, gravy

carrot cake (someone gave it to me at church, she comes from Hawaii and it was delicious)

Today I am grateful for: the wind, knowing what I can do, a warm home in which to live
 
Hello Lovely Girls, Very windy out there today, we don't often get much wind so it was a bit of a surprise this morning. My daughter and I have dropped the angel off at pre-school and done some shopping and are safely home. The cat jumped onto my new maidenhair fern last night and knocked it over, not happy, I cleared as much as I could up last night and this morning have vacuumed up the remaining soil. Looks like some carpet cleaning in my near future!! I am hoping that she has figured out that jumping on a plant doesn't work!! The fern looks a bit flat now, I dare say it will buck up in a couple of days:)
 
I liked today's quote especially because so often we focus on our inabilities instead of our abilities, we are all so capable and wonderful each in our own way. We should never listen to that little voice in our head that feeds our insecurities but to the words of trusted friends and loving family who know us for who we really are and what we really do. I have got to know so many of you really well just by writing here and on facebook, what a wonderful group of women I have the privilege of being part of. Love you girls:)

hollybelle on 06/22/2012:
Love YOU back, Moogy! About that quote: Having been in sales most of my life and constantly required to attend sales "training" and success motivation meetings it used to be that we were taught to focus on our weaknesses and work to improve them. Then, a f ew years ago, the rhetoric switched and began to say focus on your strengths and use them and forget your weaknesses. I like that better and it was more "true" use what 'ya got baby! It's more like not going against character type - I like it! Yay!


Umpqua on 06/22/2012:
Great entry Moogy, focusing on our strengths and positivity is a much better way to tackle challenges in life. I hope you have an excellent day!


liza36 on 06/22/2012:
I appreciate the quote and your thoughts on it. I have been having those little thoughts lately about my lack of abilities, or insecurities coming up, and need to remember they have no place in my inner dialogue.

I also appreciate your thoughts on the friendship with church guy. We'll have to see what happens with it.

Have a great day! I too feel privileged to be part of such a wonderful group, which includes YOU!


thinkpositive on 06/22/2012:
Thank you and I agree- what a great group of supportive women. It's a pleasure knowing you. I watched a PBS show about virtual offices and that people are working together but have never met face to face and thought about the DD group. Sounds like your cat has settled in!

Hello Lovely Girls, Chilly morning today, but the promise of a lovely day later:) I am sure it is because I am getting older but I do seem to be feeling the cold more these days. I even found myself wishing for warmer weather this morning and surprised myself, as you know I love the cold, but nowadays, not first thing in the morning.!! LOL

I will be baking with the angel today, we are making a strawberries and cream cake for the big kids afternoon tea. She feels ready to start cooking with nana:) So as soon as my living room/dining room/kitchen has warmed up I shall emerge from under this blanket and do something!! I hope you are having a good week:) Love you girls:)

I used to cook with my grandmother. It was absolute favorite thing in the whole world for many many many years! We baked a lot, but we cooked dinners and breakfasts, too! On the cold, yup - I feel it more too. I am interested to see this winter if my bones feel it less since I'm taking the hormones. We shall see. Have a good one. Yay for your measuring skirt gathering a bit!!!!

Hello Lovely Girls, Weather is beautiful one day and perfect the next!! Love winter in Sydney:) I took the angel to pre-school this morning and it was really chilly about 3 degrees Celsius, soooo about 37f. I tend not to bother changing clothes between Winter and Summer just long sleeved top to account for the cold and I do wear my jeans in Winter but never in Summer. I was sitting in the car and noticing that my 'measuring' skirt is now gathering a little around my tummy, it felt good:)

A normal day is planned for today, a little baking (white bean blondies today), a little cleaning, afternoon tea with the big kids, and of course, it's Tuesday so Top Model and a sleepover with the princess. I might as well turn off the volume as she gives great commentary all the way through!! LOL Hope you all have a lovely day:) Love you girls:)

Today I am grateful for: a beautiful Winter's day, a cuddly cat, earth angels

Hello Lovely Girls, Forecast around 65 degrees and sunny all week:) Yay! Been away for a few days ....again! We had another ambulance trip to the hospital on Thursday night with my daughter. She collapsed at the bottom of my stairwell, this time it was an allergic reaction, tongue thickening, throat closing over, fortunately the ambulance arrived really quickly and took her away. The eldest boy decided that it was time for him to 'man up' and informed me that he would be going with her. This was the quickest visit in six months only four hours and she was home, antihistamines and steroids counteracted the effects. Soooo grateful we live in a first world country:) Because she has so many other things wrong with her it does tend to knock her around a bit, her heart was tackier than usual all weekend and her blood sugars were all over the place, so I have been mommy and nurse this weekend. The children were at their dad's so that worked out well.

Food has not been good this weekend. There are only so many worries I can cope with before I need comforting food, so I had some! And it did make me less anxious and comforted, plus I don't feel guilty! I hope you girls had a healthier and less stressful weekend than I did and that we all have a happy and healthy week:) Love you girls:)

V on 06/17/2012:

So sorry your daughter had a reaction but I'm glad it was over quickly! That's good that her oldest is helping to take care of her, what a brave big boy! I hope you are doing a little better now and have a great week :)
