Good morning

Great game yesterday really competitive but we did loose 3-2.  This is actually good we do not go into the tournament playing the first game but the second game which allows one team to be knocked out in the standing.  Looking forward to Saturday.

Food and water was good yesterday.  I say water loosely because I use the added taste colouring stuff to take the plain water taste away but I consider it water that is as close to it as I can get without gagging in drinking water.

Food today is still unknown at this time.  I have to run my errands and do my grocery list.  It will be the hopping from store to store today for the specials.

I ran accross this soup I use to make and I am sure you have all seen this soup it is recommended to fill in the times when you are hungry and do not want to eat really fatty foods and you can have it anytime and as often as you want.  I had forgotten about this soup for a while but I will be making it and keeping it in the fridge for those times of hunger.  Lots of vegetable low carb and that is always good news.  

Anyway that is about all for me for today wishing you all a great day.


PS would be nice to break this plateau - patience is what I have to practice.... lol   

Progress as of today: 91 lbs lost so far, only 13 lbs to go!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/18/2016:
Sorry for your loss lol! Only good loss is weight loss! haha

i find that adding sweetener, sugar free, changes things up & i do it all the time.

Yes, i always forget about soups - i'm not sure why i don't like them? not fond for some reason...i guess i don't care always for the liquid....i think i like them more in winter (and i used to have so much soup - maybe i grew sick of it from past years lol...who knows!)

Diamond50 on 08/19/2016:
I'm sure Saturday will be exciting on the soccer field! I too struggle with drinking water. I really have to focus on that as well and if there's anyway as person can get it in I say do whatever works! I really enjoy soup too. It's a real comfort food for me. Perhaps next shopping I'll buy the fixings to make some as well. Plateaus can be the most frustrating things. Hang in there. It WILL come. You have done so well!

Good morning

All is good at this end.

So my regular soccer night today.  This is the last of our regular games before the tournament.  Tonight decides what standing we will have in the Saturday tournament.  Would be nice if we were the last or middle game players because some team could be eliminated before us and would make it more interesting and a better chance at winning the tournament.  Anyway we will see.  Whatever it is will be a great day to be had.

Cooler weather today but sunny.  The house has totally cooled down.

Not sure what my food will be today - to be determined.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon

Yesterday was a blast at my brothers for dinner.  I am looking forward for his official retirement.  Actually he has been putting it off he could have retired over a year ago but I think that finally it is getting closer.  He was telling me that probably Jan/2017 is looking like a good time for him to stop working.

Today is a wonderful cool and rainy day it is good to get rid of that heat but it is not totally over for very long but do appreciate the few days of reprive.

Not much on agenda for today.  Just relaxing got in late last night so mega slow day for me.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a rough day. 

Today I am going for dinner at my brother's and s-i-l.  Should be fun always is. 

It is going to be a busy week a lot of stuff going on dinner Monday, soccer Wednesday and final soccer tournament on Saturday 3-game to decide the winner hope we make it to the last game.  Will be a long day and hope the weather is good but not too hot for the little guys.

We got two wonderful days of cooler weather but it is on its way up again for this week.  Seems to me this is a warmer then normal August.  We will cope with it.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

All is good here just having a lazy weekend.

Finally we are having two cooler days and some rain and clouds.  It is welcomed.

Nothing on my schedule for the day.  Would be a great day to sleep and read or just watch a little bit of TV.  Nice breeze coming through the house.

Wishing you all a great day.

I just woke up from a nap. I'm feeling lazy too.

puddles on 08/13/2016:
I thought I was going to be lazy but got a boost of energy and did a big clean in the condo. Love it when it just comes out nowhere and I get it all done. Enjoy your day Raven.

Donkey on 08/13/2016:
Right there with ya on the lazy and sleep... Sometimes it's good to just relax :-)

Horn_of_plenty on 08/14/2016:
Good morning Ms. Puddle.

Lazy here during the morning and early afternoon yesterday.

Glad to hear you've got the breeze. We now have the heat wave!

Last night was cool - lightning storm, no rain.

Good morning

Yesterday was another good day.

We won at the soccer game 6-4 and we beat the best team that had not lost one game this year.  Sad for them but great for use.  One more game and then the final tournament  to see who will bring in the winnings. 

We are suppose to get a break from the heat by Saturday with thunderstorms but the following week they are predicting another very warm week.  It is definitely the hottest August on record.

Food today not sure yet still on coffee will decide a little later when I get hungry.  Probably my regular vegetables with some protein and probably a salad at some point during the day.  Covering the food groups that I enjoy vegetables and protein.  I might have some kind of a starch today not sure if it will be with the meat & veg or with the salad - to be determined.

Wishing you all a great day.

Hi Puddy :-D

When i am retired, i def see myself with a coffee maker & enjoying my coffee and other drinks and lots of veggies. and living my life as i see fit. maybe a man, but maybe not.

I also eat starch of course, usually my fave veggie chips are included. I love them and like the extra fat...and sometimes the body really craves those carbs as i am now...but waiting it out!

Carbs do cause an increase in i think seratonin / feel good...

Have a lovely day.

I hope the weather holds a bit for this weekend - i have plans for an adventure with a long-time good friend from when i was only 18. Around 16 years i have known her but do not see her often at all. like only once to a few times annually...

anyways, enjoy your day F xo

puddles on 08/11/2016:
I would never go down to a size 12 simply because my body would have way too much skin hanging. I have some as it is so I can just imagine. I am careful as to what I wear now and it would be impossible for me to wear a bathing suit in public or shorts or sleeveless tops. It would also mean that I would have to loose another 60 pounds. Would not be a pretty sight.... lol At my age my skin does not have all that much elastic anymore actually it has no elastic at all.... lol

OhioRaven on 08/11/2016:
Hi, Puddy. Glad to hear the Soccer Team is still kicking balls. Enjoy the warm weather while you can. Winter is just around the corner. Try some well drained Sauerkraut mixed into something.

puddles on 08/11/2016:
I don't like Sauerkraut cant bring myself to eat it.

Diamond50 on 08/11/2016:
Awesome win at soccer! I've been heard the heat reports from Ontario in the news.. I feel for you Puddy. Here in Alberta the last few days we have had some extreme down pours.

puddles on 08/11/2016:
Yes it seems the country is having floods or extreme heat. Not too good for fires around here.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/11/2016:
Whatever makes you happy and whatever you are satisfied with is what is best for you. I have learned in life the most important thing is to be content with our own decisions - as long as we don't regret our decisions or regret our choices - then it means we are making the right choices for ourselves :)

Good morning

Yesterday was another perfect day for food and water.

They are calling for record highs in heat for the next 3 days and it will not be cooling down at night so that should be interesting times.

Tonight is another soccer game thank God there is only two left because in this heat I find it a little cruel on the kids running on the field but it is the finals and cannot be put off.

I have not figured out what to eat today but I am leaning to the cold salads with protein.  Will not be doing any cooking in the house.

It is easy to put down the water in this weather that is the only advantage of the weather.  The humidity makes it difficult to breath outside. 

Well that is about all that is going on here so I will wish you all a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/10/2016:
I guess you can say our weather here is typical for August sorta. The weather suggests that we may have thunderstorms everyday...for like a week. Beach might be out of the question it seems.

Good afternoon.

Yesterday was a perfect day.  Weather was hot but I had a lot of stuff to do inside so did not feel it and the evening cooled down was able to open windows for sleeping time.

Today I just finished clean my patio furniture and deck.  Everyweek after they cut the grass it is a major clean up.  It is done for the week now all is good.

Making a vegetable quiche for dinner tonight looking forward to that it is a crustless quiche so I do not get the extra calories.

Apart from that not much else new at this end so I will wish you all a great day.  Still on my plateau.  That is ok... just keep doing what I do.

veggie quiche sounds tasty!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/09/2016:
maybe egg whites to cut calories.

puddles on 08/09/2016:
I follow the recipe as is actually it is not that high so I do not worry too much about a few calories I just work them into my day.

Horn_of_plenty on 08/09/2016:
egg yolks are healthy anyways. :)

Horn_of_plenty on 08/09/2016:
and you have good intentions for me. I know so. I know i am acting crazy with Paul. I know it's no good. I still hope the best. Of course he's holding back now after me visiting him.

I wish he'd just let down his damn guard. it sucks. if he really hated me, he'd say he didn't want the plum. but he took it? whatever.

We shall see what/if/when he writes back.

puddles on 08/10/2016:
He is playing head games. I would call this mental and emotional abuse. Have you ever read the book "Co-dependent no more". It is a self help book on relationships not only with guys but with everybody in your circle.

Good afternoon

Yesterday was an unusual day I was hungrier then usual but got through it ok.

Just got back from my regular breakfast with brother and s-i-l.  She had been away for two weeks so we had a lot of catching up to and we have made plans to meet for dinner next Monday instead of breakfast.  We have alternated the two this Summer.

The rest of the day will be filled with some stuff I have to get done around the house and probably have my afternoon nap. 

It will be another extremely hot week and no rain everything is suffering from the lack of rain, grass is yellow, trees look dry... a few showers for Friday but nothing meaningful. 

That is about all that is going on around here so I wish you all a great day.

Horn_of_plenty on 08/09/2016:
By me, there is NO drought this summer at all.

Sounds nice to meet for dinner instead of breakfast and i'd say that makes for more meal choices instead of your usual breakfast right?

Maybe you were anxious about something to make you want more food? Maybe the heat or something?

I was taking an afternoon nap on Saturday and it was glorious.

Diamond50 on 08/09/2016:
It's nice that you have regular get togethers as you've described. It gives a person something to always look forward to.

Glad you got through your hungrier day. Some times it is literally getting through things one day at a time so one doesn't feel overwhelmed. I have to remind myself of this too.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day.

Enjoyed my evening out with friend. 

We are in for another week of this weather I might as well get use to it.  It will probably change directly from Summer to Winter.  Extreme heat to real cool weather that often is the case there is no just getting use to having cooler weather it down right get more then cool.  The change of leaves will be too fast. 

So today is up in the air do not have anything planned so it will be whatever it will be.  The unknown... lol  I am a little tired today so definitely a afternoon nap.  Life is such a bbbiiiittttch.... lol 

Wishing you all a great day.

funny how our weather is sorta opposite for awhile. NY was hot yesterday but i was at beach and for most of the day while i was there, it was FAR cooler than the 90 offshore. I think it was more like 80 right on the edge by the water while we were laying in the sand!

I even went for a dip. wonderful.
