Good afternoon

The past few days the food and water has been good but my allergies are driving me crazy.

Tonight I go out for dinner with a friend and his daughter in law and we are going to red lobster and that works they have dinners that are 600 cals and less so I will do a pick from that list.  It is so nice that you now have reasonable choices when you are out at a restaurant. 

Sunday the kids and my friend are coming over for dinner so the house will be full and possibly my brother and s-i-l which makes us a total of 8.   Will be a tight sqeeze around my table but it will all work out - I think it is called toetherness.... lol

That is about it just wish my allergies would ease up a bit but I know it is only for a short time until all the tree are in bloom.

Wishing you all a great day.

Well done on the food and water.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

Up early my rib was hurting because I coughed a lot so I decided to just get up and take some buckley's  yaaaacccck....  I hate the taste but it works.  My nose is also running a bit also could be alergies not sure did not think I have alergies but I will see. 

I am going to have a relax day.  I do have to go for a few things at the store but it really is not a must do I could survive without.  It all depends.  I have a craving for cabbage of all things.... my regular craving for lots of vegetable simmered in some stewed tomatoe and at the last minute put some cooked chicken for protein and just let it simmer again for a little while.  It is definitely a volume meal that is extremely low in calories.   

That is about it for me wishing you a great day.

Fran

WowZers ! Hope you get well soon. Try some SauerKraut in tomatoe sauce and ground turkey burger.

puddles on 05/03/2016:
Not a big fan of Sauerkraut. I know you love it.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 05/03/2016:
your veggie soup and cabbage sounds delightful! a place by me makes it similar to the way you describe yours...feel better F :)

puddles on 05/03/2016:
Thanks J.

i coughed so hard i broke my rib. I hope you find out what is wrong. Have a great day!

puddles on 05/03/2016:
I cracked a rib 3 weeks ago but last night it brought back some pain that had gotten better but now it is irritated.

Good afternoon

Yesterday food and water was good.

Today was my breakfast out with brother and s-i-l my usual Monday outing.  All is good.  A little bit busy on the social life this week out again on Wednesday out for drinks with a friend and on Thursday out to dinner at the Red Lobster I will have to be picky as to my selections this week if I want to stay on track and maintain where I am.  I rather have reasonable choices then face the scale going up.  There will probably be something going on on Sunday for mother's day so that will be another social event.  It is a good thing that I do not always do this but once in a while is good to overdo the social life.

It is finally warming up here and still hoping for he sun to come out.

Wishing you a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

The weather was perfect yesterday decided to do some shopping while I was out and found two Summer dresses the type that if you have to go out real fast you just reach for them and you are ready to go no big fuss just comfy jersey dresses actually something life a long T-Shirt. 

Today cloudy/rain I just wish we could get a few day of sun together and now have rain in between. 

I will do a little bit of cleaning/laundry today to clear up my week for whatever else may come up and I won't feel guilty about not having done the house work.

The 1st of May I would like to wish everybody a great month.

Good morning

I have had a very good week for food and water.  My month of April was real good 4 pounds total down.  It has been nice to start again to see the scale move and hopefully May will show more progress in the same direction.  If not that is ok also.  My plateau of several months has shown me to be patient and not give up.

It is the weekend and the weather is great.  I need to do a lot little jobs today but I will go down the list and see how much I get done.  Refuse to put any pressure on the todo list.

Wishing you all a great weekend.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/30/2016:
I am really happy for you. So glad you can applaud yourself with movement of the scale. like I commented on Annie's diary, persistence does pay off. It's when we stop trying - that shouldn't EVER be applauded. And I mean stopping trying without the intention of ever working for things again...good job!


grannyannie on 04/30/2016:
Congrats, Fran. You're doing great.


OhioRaven on 05/01/2016:
Great news on your weight loss. I could use some of that.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day food and water.

Today is the frustrating day that I meet with my accountant to do my damn income taxes.  I always pay every year so today will end up being an expensive day. 

All the sales are out for the week so will probably end up spending more money at the grocery store but I don't mind doing that it is a necessity to put food in my fridge. 

We are having a beautiful sunny day and I am glad that I will be getting out of the house again.  I will soak up the rays while we have them.

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/28/2016:
It must stink to pay! especially when retired and seriously paying out of my savings! ewwww.

beyond that, glad to hear it was a great day with food & agua.

I hope you buy tasty food.

This morning I had to throw out 2 bags of fresh bean sprouts! They were old and decrepid. as usual. but luckily it only added up to $3 down the toilet. I'll have to seriously MIRCROAVE veggies when right after I buy them, then at least I can eat them right away...and not throw them away.

lol, it takes 2 seconds to microwave veggies and that's all I need to do in order to be able to bring them for lunch to work! (I don't eat a lot of uncooked veggies anymore, my preference is for cooked.)


grannyannie on 04/28/2016:
Taxes are such fun. Not. Good job on the food and water.

Hugs. Taxes suck.

Good morning guys

Yesterday and the day before where good day.

I just got busy I should not say busy because it does not even come close to anything all you guys are doing.  My life is more on the relax side of life but for me it was my kind of busy.

I have been getting and research some stuff we need for the cottage.  We have a site in our area and actually all through Canada cal Kijiji which is a buy and sell site and it cover anything you could possibly need or want and for the cottage second hand is way good enough because some people sell stuff that is almost new they have just gotten tired of it or they have redecorated and it does  not fit the decor anymore.  Great deals.

Today is a beautiful sunny day so will get out and do outdoors stuff around the condo. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 04/28/2016:
Good idea for decorating and buying what you need for your cottage! I actually want to decorate my apt a little bit with some wall hangings (not sure what I want yet). I've been living here around almost 3.5yrs and still nothing on the walls! LOL. I don't want to spend a lot of money...although I realize if I get sick of a wall hanging (framed something or other!), I can always replace it! Maybe i'll look on groupon / amazon.

Do you guys have pinterest pinboards for pinspiration?

Good morning

All is good at this end.

Going out for breakfast with brother and s-i-l. My regular Monday outing.

It was nice at the cottage yesterday.  The road was still a little iffy but all the snow is gone and it is now accessible.  We just sat on the deck and took in the sun and the peacefulness of being out there.  In a few weeks we will probably start going away on a regular basis getting the cottage season going.  

Wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon

All is good at this end.

Not much today just a normal relax day sun is out and so will I be in a little while.

Going to check out the cottage road tomorrow to see if we can make it in but I am bringing my rubber boots in case we have to walk the last little way.

That is about it for me wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day food and water so so....lol  can't win them all... could be worst I could have been so so on food but it was only my water content.  I consider that a great day.

Rain today I am so happy I took advantage of the sunny days that we got earlier this week.

So nice to see new members coming into the DD. 

Today is a I don't know yet what I will be doing but I am sure that I will find something to keep myself busy and if not it will be a relax day and hoping that tomorrow the sun will come out and the rain will stop... I have no control on that so I will go will it and do my best to have the best day I can.

Wishing you all a great Friday and I am sure that many of you are looking forward to the weekend.
