Today I am grateful for: another sunny Winter's day, deep hot baths, feeling better

Hello Lovely Girls, Obviously it is a glorious sunny day out there and I shall have a warm snugly afternoon when the sun hits my big windows. I had my second night of no coughing and my throat is feeling much better, swallowing dull knives instead of sharp ones now. I still have no voice. I was going to post some body's else smart motto but figured my family motto was much better. I managed to get some exercise in this morning, yay!, first time for over a week, only half of what I was doing before but never mind at least I am back on the road to recovery and those elusive 100 push ups.

My calories are still too low, I just don't have an appitite yet. However, the chocolate monster reared her head yesterday (definetly a she!!) and I had to fight her off, fortunately I don't have any acceptable eating chocolate in the house. I figured I must be returning to good health if I am yearning for my friend. I know I would feel better if I eat some chocolate but like I said yesterday, it isn't worth the effort of getting all those delicious calories off!! I hope you have a successful and happy day girls, love you:)

Exercise: 30 wall push ups, 25 step ups, 25 chair squats

biscottibody59 on 08/10/2011:
Look at that--chair squats can be quite the challenge--excellent all around there moogy!!!:-) (Really--with a slightly sore throat too!)

Have a continuingly wonderful day!

ps thanks for your kind comments--very much appreciated here!

(Yeah, it only took about 3 sips of redbull--yechh!)


Umpqua on 08/10/2011:
Excellent job on the exercise! I love your family motto too. Oh and I'm pretty sure legcramps is leading on the pushups, I'm just posting my total amount because I like to see the number go up ;)


V on 08/10/2011:
awesome motto, awesome workout!! HURRAH!! Go Moogy go!! You are a machine!! LuB YOU!!


V on 08/10/2011:
Yeah Yeah Yeah!!! Show off indeed!! LOl... Hey it's okay no one even pays attention to my intake anymore..LOL I have been off the coffee for almost 3 months or so, if Maria were around she would have surely picked that up...I think I had to tell Biscotti how I gave up my Starbucks addiction "cold turkey" Just42day was the only one who noticed...LOL See sometimes I just sneak it in there without a big fanfare.... :)


V on 08/10/2011:
LOL!!! I imagine their stock plummeted...I must say "never say never" Sweetpea was the one who actually told me that pretty soon the java would be replaced with the natural buzz from all the cardio from Turbo Fire...I prettymuched laughed at her for an entire week!!! I too said NEVER, just ask her...Now she brings this up just like the little sister that she is by saying "see I told ya so" I hate to admit she was soooo right!! She forces me to say it too :(


V on 08/10/2011:
LOL!! :)


sweetpea1977 on 08/10/2011:
Wow, great job on the exercise moogy!! Keep up the excellent work!!

No, I never get naps during the day. Thankfully, hubby lets me sleep in on the weekends, so I take full advantage of that!

I posted an online "calories needed" calculator as a reply to my post. Its also in the FB group's document section. :)

I hope you are feeling 100% better soon!


hollybelle on 08/11/2011:
Hey - to answer your question from yesterday - it's a Fro Jo....it's a chain of frozen yogurt stores that is reasonably priced - self-serve so one must show restraint (LOL) - I love it and I am never in that section of town so I treated myself yesterday - it's low fat or fat free but has sugar. I got swirled two flavors - white choc mousse and espresso (yum. It has about 45 calories per oz and I had about 4.5 oz so 225 calories or so - I may have counted it more/less that # of cals - but I was in a hurry! Thanks for asking - I hope you get to try some Fro Jo Froz Yogurt some day, Moogy!

I owe it all to little chocolate donuts.    John Belushi

Today I am grateful for: a good nights' sleep, the morning sun shining on me, the view from my windows

Hello Lovely Girls, It is a crisp clear and sunny morning, there is frost on the roof of the neighbours house, so I am presuming on our's as well. I am not going out there to check. I left the heater on all night (a terrible extravagance!) and managed to sleep all night without coughing, I may have to through my carbon footprint to the wind and have it on again tonight!! I liked the quote today, not only because I love little chocolate donuts, but because I bet John Belushi said this to be funny and at the time it probably was. I think that knowing that he died because he failed to control his appetites in any area is a good wake up call for us, we put this weight on a little bit at a time over a long time and that's the way it is going to come off. No matter how tempting the 'little chocolate donut' is, it is not worth the effort it takes to work of the calories.

I have had no voice for three days now and have found out that I enjoy the power of having people come at my bidding when I want to say something!! LOL I shall be doing very little again!!!! today, just nursing myself, spending time with the angel and afternoon tea with the big children. I managed to get more calories in yesterday, this is so frustrating because I know my body loses weight best if it is well fed. Two more days until weigh in, so we shall see if my near starvation diet has helped me lose any weight. I hope you all have a happy and healthy day and that you keep cool. Love you girls;)

I hope you get to feeling better soon, starvation diet is no good!

Your quote got me thinking of this little gem, I posted the pic for you: http://i957.photobucket.com/albums/ae51/Umpqua42/DD/belushi.jpg

That's from our trip to Italy in 2006. We hiked the Appian Way in Rome (and I say hike because we didn't realize how long it was and walked several miles/km!) When we finally reached the little village near the catacombs we visited, this is what we found at the restaurant. Funny, but sad too.


Umpqua on 08/09/2011:
Haha, we didn't actually eat there, we were pretty weirded out by the sign! Notice that I'm also the same size as him, haha :)


V on 08/09/2011:
Okay keeping with the SNL cast/addiction theme, Chris Farley used to come into the bar i worked in Chicago..His condo was 2 blocks over so he would come in at least twice a week..He would sit there alone and I could feel his sorrows..His eating addiction alone was bad enough but the drugs as well put the nail in the coffin :( Anyways, he would sit there. sometimes he was chatty but for the most part he sat there and devoured an entire large deep dish pizza and washed it down with a pitcher of beer :( Anyways sorry that was a bit of a downer.. I hope you enjoy your cool winter day :) LUB YOU


sweetpea1977 on 08/09/2011:
No, it doesnt make you a bad mama. There are nights when hubby ends up on the couch. I think its because of me, but he is too sweet to tell the truth. My sis says I toss and turn violently as well as kick in my sleep, so thats probably what has made him move to the sofa downstairs.

I love the quote and your insight behind it. You are so right!!

I hope you feel better soon! xo

The ongoing procreation of humans (and zebras and goldfish for that matter--haha) probably negates your cozy heater use--just trying to make you feel better:-)


hollybelle on 08/10/2011:
Hope you feel better soon. So you do get frosto there? As for John Belushi - I liked Umqua's picture by the way I checked it out.....ironic about the latin words - Vini vedi. This is roughly translated - I came, I saw. The other part you usually see with it - is vici - I conquored. I guess that was the missing piece of Belushi's life. As for us on DDs we are a conquoring lot! No time to dwell on anything else.....!


liza36 on 08/10/2011:
I hope you feel better soon and the cough subsides.

You are right that the donut (or whatever it happens to be) is not worth it. I always have that thought AFTER I consume it, and the trick is to come to that realization before. Good food for thought today!


thinkpositive on 08/10/2011:
Sorry that you lost your voice. I am prone to laryngitis also & it's no fun. Good point about putting weight on a little at a time & it will come off the same way. I'm a bit impatient though. Hope you are pleased with your hard work at your next weigh in. ( that does sound better than saying good luck- see I'm learning!)


V on 08/10/2011:

Today I am grateful for: spending time with an angel, the beautiful sky, pink clouds

Hello Lovely Girls, It is going to be a cloudy and cool day here, good snuggling weather. Had a bit of a rough night, so got up at 3am and turned on the heater took some medicine and that seemed to do the trick, slept until 7.30am. Yay! I have the angel with me now as I have just been downstairs to fix the router as my computer wouldn't recognise the ISP??? I don't know - it is a mystery to me. Anyhoo, daughter was asleep on the lounge and angel was watching Dora, so I kidnapped her. That should shock daughter when she wakes up!!

I got up and rearranged the lounge room this morning, no reason, just felt like it. I was breathing like an bad asthmatic when I had finished and puffing like a train. I am counting it as exercise!! It is funny nowadays, there are just as many cable and electrical fixin's to move and reattach as there are pieces of furniture to replace. I just have a little cleaning and afternoon tea with the big children today. I hope you have a healthy and happy day. Love you girls:)

Hello Lovely Girls, It is a beautiful morning, sparkling after some overnight rain. I seem to have mostly stopped coughing apart from the occasional clearance cough necessary to shift the gungy stuff in my lungs! Nice! I don't have much to report as I haven't done much apart from look after myself and am planning to do the same today. I just have afternoon tea with the big children, I am pretty sure there won't be a sleepover tonight with the princess. We will no doubt make up for it later in the week.

I had another low calorie day yesterday and sincerely hope that I will get a reward on the scale for all this non eating!!!! I hope you girls have a lovely day.

Today I am grateful for: feeling as if I am getting better, sleeping in, a still quiet day

Hello Lovely Girls, There is not a breath of wind outside and it is a cool cloudy morning. It rained in the night, just long enough to wake me up and threaten to water the garden. The rest of the household are at church, we didn't think it was to clever for me to go and 'share' my cough with everyone else. I am enjoying the quiet and may even go back to bed. I am getting better, not coughing as much but now my throat is so sore that it hurts to swallow, hence to eat. My calories for yesterday are really low, I figure I am not exactly going to do any damage as I carry around enough stores to last a few months. Funny, I am not even hungry either. I wonder how that works!!!!!

As you can imagine, I am doing nothing today apart from a little reading and tele watching. Attempting not to cough and hoping that my poor throat fixes itself quickly. I hope the rest of you girls have a great rest of the weekend. Love 'em if you got 'em. I love you girls:)

Hello Lovely Girls, Saturday morning here in Sydney and finally the weather is back to cool Winter stuff. We had another nearly eighty day yesterday!! I shall say no more about this rudeness! I continue to battle my cough but I slowly but surely think that it is getting better. I don't have to do anything today but look after myself.

The angel bought me two painting home from pre-school yesterday, one in blues and greens and one in dramatic red, yellow and orange. She bought them up to me with a big grin on her face hiding them behind her back - she thought they would make me feel better - she was right, they did.! Another good calorie day yesterday, I am on a roll! I hope that you have a happy and healthy weekend:) Love you girls:)

Hey Moogy! I bet the paintings brightened your day. Too cute! I just posted that I am doing ok, but that I'm sort of on hiatus, but I wanted to give you the whole reason. Basically (and I didn't stick it in my diary in case my work friend joins one day), I am still looking for a new job in a new city and it's long and stressful in this economy, and it has just really pushed dds off my plate. If I ever find one and my life isn't so stressfully (in secret since I can't tell most people I am looking), I'll be back here in an instant. Miss you and I'm glad you're still doing well and the angel is still being adorable.

Today I am grateful for: a good night's sleep, people who love me, having people to love

Hello Lovely Girls, It was nearly 80 degrees here yesterday, flipping cheek!!!!! Fortunately it was only for a couple of hours in the afternoon. Today it has resumed to our normal high sixties, I hope this doesn't mean summer is coming in Spring, it seems that we get less and less cool weather and more hot weather as the years pass. It doesn't make for a happy moogy!! Any hooo, I had a good night's sleep and a good productive cough this morning, so I think I am on the mend. Yay!!

I have posted my weight loss of 3.4 pounds, I had hoped for more being a first week, but I think that being sick has thrown me off a bit. I shall expect more to show up next week from this week. I hope to start my exercises again tomorrow. I shall just potter around doing my usual things today. The son in law popped in last night (one of his unscheduled nights here, he is usually here three out of five!!) and instead of hanging out with the children followed my daughter around the house for an hour and actually talked about 'feelings' there may be hope for this one yet!! Right, that's it for today. Have a wonderful day girls and remember, love 'em if you got 'em:)

Boy am I happy to return that favor to you...That was the moment I fell in love with ya, as you know :) I am hoping that D was able to express a little of what she was feeling as well, but I don't blame her for being a bit iffy as to his flakiness...

As for Martha--it'd be hard to tell as I suspect her perfectionist tendencies make it so that she has the best make-up artists and lighting engineers she can afford. I think we'd have to see her on her own unguarded turf with no make-up to be sure. Good question:-)

ps I'm with you on the weather--hope yours continues to stay mild for awhile. (Don't know if you recall, but we had quite the cover of snow the first week of Feb--hahahaha--the joke's really on us.) Nah, I'm not losing it. Not Yet.

Hello Lovely Girls, I think I am a little better today, my daughter purchased some kept behind the counter cough medicine for me. I am know coughing more easily and with results (Eeeww!) and as a result didn't have too bad a night's sleep. The angel was sitting next to me yesterday and it was a bit quite and she said "What's that noise nana" I replied "It's nana's chest whistling", then a few seconds later she said "What's that noise" I replied "That's your chest whistling". She thought that was rather funny has she hasn't learned to whistle yet!!

Apart from feeling totally crappy I am doing well with my eating and I am so pleased. Normally I would have just gone for the carbs for comfort, but, I am determined to change my ways. I am waiting until I can breathe a little better before I continue with my exercises. I did attempt some wall push ups but just ended up coughing. In my head I am still doing them!!!! Calories a little low again yesterday, just didn't feel like eating. A sure sign that I must be sick:) LOL I hope that you girls are having a healthy and happy week. Thank you for the love and concern. Love you girls:)

I am planning to get some bloodwork done in a few weeks to see if it is my thyroid. Apparently, pregnancy has a way of screwing up thyroid function, so its a possibility.

BTW, I bought coconut flakes today so that Ethan can make the coconut cake this weekend. I cant wait to see the excitement on his face when he finds out he gets to help make a cake! Thanks for the recipe and tips!

Hello Lovely Girls, Yet another wonderful day, going for low seventies today. Just perfect for me!! I would happily live with these temperatures all year round. I had another good day yesterday with my food although low in calories. I have been sucking on cough lozenges and I think it puts me off my food. I may be onto something good here!!!! I didn't cough much in the night but attempted to cough up a lung this morning. Still in one piece though! LOL

I have my usual day, baking my four cup coconut cake today (1cup flour, 1cup sugar, 1cup milk, 1 cup coconut), can't get much easier than that and the boys love it, the princess doesn't like coconut - it's too "bitty". I think sometimes we should sleep her on several mattresses with a pea underneath just to see if she is a real princess!! As Top Model is finished we watched the Fashion Channel before we retired to bed and she gave a running commentary on 'every single outfit', couldn't understand John Galliano clothes at all and just looked quizzical. So funny!! Was shocked that you could see ladies boobies on some outfits - not very modest she stated. You get the gist! Anyway, I hope that you have a great day:)

I WILL CHOOSE WISELY TODAY

I WILL REMEMBER THAT CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES

Today I am grateful for: a beautiful morning, birds singing on the roof, the children are home

Hello Lovely Girls, It is officially the first day of the last month of Winter today. We are heading for low seventies today and mid seventies by Wednesday before it cools down a little. Well, I am a little pleased with myself today, I was awake for four hours in the night coughing and generally not being able to sleep, but, I got up at my usual time and did my exercise for the day. I am so pleased with myself, normally the first chance I get for a legitimate excuse to stop exercise, I take it!!!!

I have had a request from the princess to make brownie today, so that will be my first job on the agenda. Then my usual bit of cleaning  (I am not silly, cleaning after baking saves cleaning the kitchen twice), the angel is at pre-school - she is still coughing a little, as she was walking out the door she gave a little cough and her sick mother said "Stop coughing, there is nothing wrong with you", I think my daughter was a little desperate after a rough night. OK, back to the main story, which is the winding up scene, the washing is already on and I shall hang that out and afternoon tea with the big kids, sleepover with the princess tonight. Well, as it turns out, I have got quite a lot on today, for me anyway!!! Have a wonderful day you wonderful women:)
