Today I am grateful for: being able to exercise, staying home because I want to, love

Hello Lovely Girls, It is an overcast morning but will warm up later. I have completed my little round of exercises and loved the quote I found which suits me perfectly. I am grateful that I can exercise and that after many years of abuse by overeating, dieting etc. it still bounces back and does what I want it to do. We are all miracles!!

I have a visit with the angel today and am making myself a low carb quiche, lots of trouble, but I am worth it. The big children will have to have jam tarts for afternoon tea (purchased, sshhh don't say anything!!!) I am still feeling well and think that I have recovered to full health, definitely a yay! for that!! I am joining Liza in a 30 day exercise challenge, now it is in black and white I am committed. I don't think I have ever, ever done exercise 30 days in a row at anytime apart from incidental exercise. I am a little nervous, don't want to stuff this one up!! I hope you girls have a lovely day and stay healthy. Love you:)
Exercise

30 wall push ups, 30 chair squats, 30 step ups

Yesterday's Food

low carb protein bar

turkey mid wings (2) mayo

strawberries and cream

roasted chicken and salad

Progress as of today: 24.6 lbs lost so far, only 61.7 lbs to go!

I'm happy to hear you are feeling good again! Also how amazing it must feel to be able to drive again! I am just back at DD myself after a week off... Have a great week Moogy...


sweetpea1977 on 08/29/2011:
yay! Im glad you and Liza will have each other for this 30 day challenge!

As for teeth whitening, I dont like the whole blinding white look either. Too fake! I just want to get rid of a few shades so they look less like butter. :)


V on 08/29/2011:
Say anything about what??? ;) LOL...You are so funny, as if the kids would EVER suspect...I bet ya even pulled out the best China for the Tarts...Good looking menu Moogy!!! Lub You and LOL to your post on Sweetpea's diary :) You are too much!!

I'm thrilled you are doing the challenge with me! I'll keep my eye on you, for sure. It does feel good to be able to exercise, and like you, I feel grateful that my body will do what I want it to do, for the most part. I know we can do this!

Today I am grateful for: beautiful weather, an angels cuddle, feeling good

Hello Lovely Girls, It is going to be 75 degrees today. I guess winter is over. I will enjoy these last couple of weeks of lovely weather before the dreaded heat arrives. I don't seem to be able to relish the Spring nice weather as I do the Autumn, probably because I know it won't last long and Summer is just around the corner. I have been away fighting with my dysthymia, I should have guess it would descend on me because I had been sick for so long. However, I am feeling much better now. The good news is....... fanfare...... I am allowed to drive again. I haven't had any type of seizure for over six months. So dah dah I am freed from my enforced dependence on my daughter and it feel great. I even took the angel to pre-school this morning, did some shopping and thoroughly enjoyed being by myself out and about. You really don't appreciate something until it is taken away from you!!

I have been low carbing since Friday and didn't do very much damage whilst not quite in the same dimension as normal. I expect to record a loss by next week. I have my usual day today, a little cleaning, although the talcum powder has crept into the bedroom and is making everything smell nice and look like a slight snow fall, choc chip muffins for afternoon tea with the big children to be made. I am sitting listening to the birds sing in my quiet neighbourhood and shall go out and chop off the dead heads on the flowers on my balcony shortly. Nice day!! I hope you girls are all happy and healthy. I have missed you and love you:)

It's wonderful you are allowed to drive again. Have you started your challenge yet? I started over the weekend, and it felt good actually to get on the treadmill. It was slow, but I put in the time required.

Have a wonderful day!

Monday morning update: Just a quick note as I know that most of you are still on your weekend. I had a pretty good weekend, food wise but with a couple of unnecessary night time slip ups. I shall endeavour to do better in the coming week. I hope that you are enjoying your Sunday evening and that you have a happy and healthy week ahead of yourselves:) Love you girls:)

Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.    Anonymous

Today I am grateful that: I am not a panickier, lots of rain, the sound of happy children

Hello Lovely Girls, Well, the story goes, on Friday my daughter comes home from shopping about 11am carrying a mattress (well, heaving a mattress) through the door and I say "Is that for tomorrow night?" she says "No, for tonight" I say "You mean the sleep over is tonight, I have to make the cake today", "Yes, says she" giving me that pitiful look saved only for the dim and stupid. So now I have a Pirate Ship to make in less than six hours!!!!! I didn't panic, that doesn't help. It was like a repeat of the Teddy Bear cake incident, I was there beating and baking, whipping mixture for the blue sea and the brown ship. I was the biggest cake I had ever made, I am so glad that I had the flags, sails and sand ready. Anyway, when it was finished the child was so happy, he gave me a big hug and told me it was exactly what he wanted. Job done!!!! Dah Dah!!! With this beauty there where no extras for me to eat so that was good, besides I was too knackered by the time I had finished. I don't want to look at another cake for a while. Well, until I have to do afternoon tea next week!! LOL

The eating yesterday was a bit all over the place, excellent breakfast, daughter went and got me a lovely hamburger from the fish and chip shop (hand made, just the bun, the hamburger pattie and lots of salad and I ate half of it, I had some oven baked chips for dinner. So not bad, just not good!! I am planning on catching up with my ironing today and I must must vacuum, my kitchen floor now looks like a scene from a disaster movie!! I hope you girls have a healthy and happy weekend. Love you:)

Progress as of today: 24.6 lbs lost so far, only 61.7 lbs to go!

Hey Moogy!!! It is an hour behind Fla time in Chicago, it is only 6pm here...The date is later and yes you will get all the juicy goods...

Today I am grateful for: more rain, a blue and white striped sky, cockatoos

Hello Lovely Girls, It is a cloudy and chilly morning and we must have had more rain because it is wet out there. I was woken by the cockatoos this morning who choose our house to circle for their morning screeching ritual. They are so beautiful it is hard to be angry, and funny too, like a noisy family meeting for a reunion every morning. They were flashing past my bedroom window wings outstretched, I am very lucky to have such magical creatures living so close to me.

The teddy bear birthday cake was a success. I however was not, I am afraid I fell off the wagon. It was my own fault (of course) I was hungry and started making the cake and couldn't stop until I had finished (the artiste in me just takes over! LOL) and when it was complete I was faced with licorice and m&m's that I had used for decoration. I decided to have a day off and thoroughly enjoyed the treats. Hence my quote for the day!! I am back on the wagon today and not feeling to bad about my detour. The scale however shows no loss this week, consequences, consequences!! It is the pirate ship on Saturday, so I must remember to eat before I start with the decoration for that one, actually the only tempting thing on that is chocolate covered marshmallow logs (for the cannons). I shall throw away what isn't needed!! I hope you girls have a good healthy day. Love you:) For obvious reasons I am not listing my food for yesterday.

Progress as of today: 24.6 lbs lost so far, only 61.7 lbs to go!

sweetpea1977 on 08/18/2011:
ha, so there are two rules regarding hunger and food: "never go grocery shopping while hungry" and "never bake cakes while hungry" :)

Hope today is a successful one!

that's great that you got back on the wagon.If it had been me i probably whould not be able to.I'm proud of you.


hollybelle on 08/19/2011:
OH yeah, Moogy - if I bake I definitely have to take the stuff somewhere an not partake and it's hard to do. Usually I just wind up working the treat into my calories, but there are those blips on the screen of nutirtion. Good for you shaking it of and getting back on the health wagon!

Today I am grateful for: overnight rain, a sunny morning, a new day

Hello Lovely Girls, I had a good day yesterday, and a good night last night, I think I am on the mend (she says cautiously!). I have my appetite back and managed to eat real food at the proper time. I even ate vegetables, which I haven't been able to face for a couple of weeks, I have missed my vegies!! It is a beautiful day outside, all sparkly and fresh after some heavy overnight rain (which I attempted to stay awake and listen to at one stage but was overcome by the arms of Morpheus). It is the first real rain we have had for weeks, so I was glad to hear it.

It is project Teddy Bear today, pretty easy cake to make, can't wait to see her face. She has started saying she loves me this (holding up three fingers) much now. I think I prefered it when she loved me "all my heart". So beautiful! I hope that you girls have a happy and healthy day and remember, love 'em if you got 'em. Love you girls:)

No act of kindness, no matter how small is ever wasted.     Aesop

Today I am grateful for: beautiful sunsets, blue icebergs, perfectly formed flowers

Hello Lovely Girls, I am actually feeling pretty good this morning, may be temporary but I will take it as it comes. It is the second biggest boys birthday today, eleven. It is the angels birthday tomorrow, three. So it is all visiting and presents around here at the moment.  The second biggest boy came up at 6pm last night and asked if I could please make THIRTY of my choc chip muffins for his class today. It is apparently a tradition that if it is your birthday you bring in cakes for the class. I wouldn't have minded if he had asked a couple of days ago or even yesterday morning but I was knackered. However, what can I do, he is such a lovely boy, so there I was up to my elbows in batter, sweating and feeling dizzy making muffins. I better get good presents from this boy when he starts working!!!!!

I had a good eating day yesterday, managed to get my calories up a little. The food was a little eclectic but never mind. Then I was so hungry in the evening that I ate one of the chocolate coconut slices I had made for the afternoon tea. Probably about 450 calories so that put me right up in my right calorie range. Not good calories though!! Anyhoo, I have some prep to do for the two birthday cakes I am making this week, one for the angel tomorrow - a teddy bear, covered in coco pops and the grand finale a pirate ship on the ocean with beach, treasure, palm tree and the whole thing for Saturday night when a sleep over will occur. I have pirate flags and sails to make as well as the sand (a mixture of icing sugar and crunchy peanut butter), just trying to get ahead on this production!! Have a good day girls:)

I loved the spinach salad I had last night and the carrots! But I have to have more than that. I am thinking of making meat a 2-3 times a week thing at most - but not sure how that will fly with husband.

Today I am grateful for: the flowers on my balcony, my grand children's smiles, my daughter

Hello Lovely Girls, Sorry I have not posted in a couple of days. It is official, I have influenza, no wonder I am having trouble shaking this cough off. I haven't exercised in a couple of days because I just start coughing. I was going good there for a little while but as soon as the weather cools down back it comes. I suppose I should be grateful that we have such mild winter's and that the warm weather (high seventies) is only a few weeks away. I am bored with myself, an unusual and frustrating state of affairs as I usually find my own company quite satisfactory.

I have my usual day but only doing the minimal amount of tasks necessary. The little girls and their mom are sick as well, the son in law stayed over to look after them last night. Well, that is the report for today. No sympathy please, it isn't necessary as there are many people in far worse situations that I am and they don't have medicine or a home. I hope you girls are doing well, I will try and get to some diaries in a while. Love 'em if you got 'em. Love you girls:)

Ugh, sorry you're sick. I hope you feel better soon!

And thanks for the support, she's actually in the same state as V right now so I'm going to see what can be done prior to her flight tomorrow ;) Unfortunately, I think the other parents were notified and I was somehow left off the list by accident. That's the only conclusion I can make. Still sucks but I'm hoping something good will come out of it in the way of a new and exciting school for my little guys!


thinkpositive on 08/15/2011:
So sorry you have the flu. It seems like you have been sick for far too long. Hope you start feeling better soon. Do you have a good book to read? Wish I could send some good chicken soup your way.

Oh my!! Gets lots of fluids and if possible, alternate tylonol with motrin to help make the fever less painful.

sending healing thoughts and love your way!


Maria7 on 08/15/2011:
Nooooo! Not the flu! Yuk! Well...you WILL be losing weight now...but still...please take extra good care of yourself...good advice above from Sweetpea, btw... Also don't forget chicken soup...We get Campbell's chicken noodle soup here sometimes and add water and bring to a boil and drain the soup into a mug (may or may not eat the noodles) and sip, sip, sip away...really does help a lot. Mucinex DM is something I HIGHLY recommend...expensive but worth it...we've used the kind that you take twice a day and it really helps tremendously. I'll be praying for you, Girl. Just relax and rest and feel better...your balcony flowers sound so pretty...what colors are they? Btw, do you guys get flu shots over there in Australia? :-) Take care.


biscottibody59 on 08/15/2011:
Rest well--hope you recover COMPLETELY from this soon! (How's that for no sympathy, just common sense--maybe? Not always my strong suit;-)

ps Thanks for the vote of confidence--I SHOULD be able to apply myself as well with the food. Seems like so long ago that I did well on that note.


Just42day on 08/16/2011:
This isn't sympathy -- just a quick note to say I hope you and your family recover quickly! Take care of yourself!

Today I am grateful for: sleeping through the night, a foggy morning, getting my computer up and running

Hello Lovely Girls, Yes, the good news for the day, I slept through the night, first time in about 10 day, so a big yay for that!!! I woke up and thought to myself "What's the time, what's the time" and yipee it was 7.25 and I hadn't coughed all night. Yay!!! Obviously the downstairs equipment is fixed temporarily, the router has to be sent of to be fixed, fortunately they supply a replacement and gratefully was under an extended warranty, so no dollars will be needed.

I was fairly pleased with my weight loss yesterday, although of course I would have like to see more after a week of almost no eating. However, I know that my body does best when it is well fed. So I am half hoping that my appetite shows her head shortly! I suspect it is on its way, when I was in my drug munchie stage, between 7.30 -8.30pm just before I wobble of to bed my devious little mind was wondering if those chocolate chip muffins I had made for the children had frozen yet, no they hadn't. I managed to eat one and leave the rest alone. Another small but significant victory.!  I have already finished my exercise before getting on the computer so I can report in. I am looking forward to a quiet weekend, I don't think I shall be leaving the house - I am on a roll here, can't remember the last time I went out, maybe on Monday or the Friday before but I can't remember that either!! All part of the joy of living with Dysthymia, you don't remember anything. People will start saying that I am the little old lady that they never let out of her tower!!! LOL I hope you girls have a wonderful weekend. Love 'em if you got 'em:)

Hey there moogster! It's good to know you slept through the night, I also have had a lot of trouble sleeping lately. I constantly wake up to use the bathroom bc i tend to drink late at night - especially if i went to the gym and got home late. Oh well. Last night we had thunder that was so loud I can't believe we also didn't lose power from the lightning. Anyways, nice job at having a good portion of the muffins you made. my friend made cookies the other day with the other woman and she brought them to the beach. they were horrible, and she asked me how they were, they tasted like cardboard, but i had to tell her that they were good...haha :-D


sweetpea1977 on 08/15/2011:
Amen to Umpqua's comment. Your body needs fuel to keep up with all the hard exercise you're putting it through. Of course, if you dont feel hungry, dont force yourself to eat big meals. Just nibble on healthy things. There is nothing wrong with having 6 small meals per day.

Sunday Update: Up with the birds today, woke at 5am and couldn't get back to sleep. A nana nap will be on for this afternoon. Calories were low again yesterday, I just can't find my appetite. Total 599. Enjoy your Saturday girls:)

 

 

I WILL CHOOSE WISELY TODAY

I WILL REMEMBER THAT CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES

 

 

Today I am grateful for: sleeping through the night, a foggy morning, getting my computer up and running

Hello Lovely Girls, Yes, the good news for the day, I slept through the night, first time in about 10 day, so a big yay for that!!! I woke up and thought to myself "What's the time, what's the time" and yipee it was 7.25 and I hadn't coughed all night. Yay!!! Obviously the downstairs equipment is fixed temporarily, the router has to be sent of to be fixed, fortunately they supply a replacement and gratefully was under an extended warranty, so no dollars will be needed.

I was fairly pleased with my weight loss yesterday, although of course I would have like to see more after a week of almost no eating. However, I know that my body does best when it is well fed. So I am half hoping that my appetite shows her head shortly! I suspect it is on its way, when I was in my drug munchie stage, between 7.30 -8.30pm just before I wobble of to bed my devious little mind was wondering if those chocolate chip muffins I had made for the children had frozen yet, no they hadn't. I managed to eat one and leave the rest alone. Another small but significant victory.!  I have already finished my exercise before getting on the computer so I can report in. I am looking forward to a quiet weekend, I don't think I shall be leaving the house - I am on a roll here, can't remember the last time I went out, maybe on Monday or the Friday before but I can't remember that either!! All part of the joy of living with Dysthymia, you don't remember anything. People will start saying that I am the little old lady that they never let out of her tower!!! LOL I hope you girls have a wonderful weekend. Love 'em if you got 'em:)

Exercise

35 wall push ups, 40 chair squats, 50 step ups

Yesterday's Food

hot chocolate, 2 weetbix, 1 cup skim milk, xylitol,  246

chicken curry and rice   364

1 small chocolate chip muffin    300     TOTAL 999 

 

It is easier to suppress the first desire than to satisfy all that follow.   Anonymous

 

Progress as of today: 24.6 lbs lost so far, only 61.7 lbs to go!

Thanks moogy for your comment. Yea, Im a little bit obsessive when it comes to weightloss. I've just grown very impatient with the slow weightloss so I was trying do all that I could to speed it up. I realize now that I am just doing more harm than good. :)

Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! Enjoy the peace and quiet!

Nice job just eating the one muffin. Sleeping through the night must have felt good.A huge victory. Hope your weekend is peaceful. Don't you want to get out of the house?

Glad to hear about the cough going away at night--one of the most annoying things. You'll get out when you're ready I'm sure!

Have a nice weekend--though I guess there's not a lot left of it at the point!

ps yeah I'm sometimes thoroughly amazed that was able to get used to CPAP. thanks for your sentiments:-)
