Good morning and Happy Valentine's day to all

Food and water are on track but expect it to be a little off today since I am going out for dinner.  Nothing too crazy.

It is cool today here but by Tuesday we will be back to our normal. 

My grandson is in another hockey tournament this weekend and he is doing real good - just waiting to see if they will win their final game today and win the tournament.  Sports for kids are good.

It has been a long time since the scale has moved for me.  It seems I have reach a spot that is comfortable to maintain but I will not change the numbers at the top because at one point I am sure they will start to drop again and if they don't so be it.  I am ok with this.  I know that I am aware and have to be aware of the food I eat - that is the biggest part of staying on track.  Anyway it is what it is for now.  I will enjoy it and accept it.  I am not where I want to be but I am not where I use to be and that is ok.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

I am up early and ready for the day - well after I get two coffees into me that is.  Nothing gets started til then. 

So today is a little bit of rain and cool I figure that is a perfect day for shopping - groceries and whatever else I might just wish to shop for.

Two weeks and the kids will be here.  Ya Ya.....I wrote to my grandkids and told them 14 more dodos....  I love to get them going that always stir things up for the parents.... lol  So much fun being a grand parent....  lol

Well that is about it for me - wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon guys

I know I have been away for a few days but all is under control food and water.  Just getting a little lazy about posting wish I should be more consistent at doing that because I miss the reads and the comments from all of you.  Always good to touch base.

Today was cool but the sun is just nice and hot just got in from the balcony and getting ready to have lunch not figured that out yet but will go snooping in the fridge. 

Raleigh by Marco Rubio just a few blocks away from me the street is lined up bumper to bumper everybody trying to find a parking spot.  It will be their primary I think next week so everybody is trying to get their message out I guess. 

Apart from that I have been a good girl - that is not always fun but it is rewarding.... lol.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Missed a few days but all is good food and water.

What a game yesterday great super bowl.  Loved the commercials also they seem to outdo themselves every year.  Got to wonder if Manning will take his retirement now - great time in his carreer to end with a win.

Anyway great day today will be taking some sun and some relax time plus have to go out because if I don't I have no milk to put in my coffee tomorrow morning and me with no coffee in the morning is not a pretty sight..... lol 

I also need to get some vegies and some fruit getting low with my supplies.  I got a great recipe for BBQ ribs not exactly the low calorie recipe but for a once in a while kind of meal it is ok just have to adjust the day before and the day after and I can make it work for me in order to have a rib treat.

Home you are all well.

Cute typo you know I meant Hope and not Home.... lol Just wanted to see if you guys where awake... lol

grannyannie on 02/08/2016:
I'm not a fan of American football, but I know who Manning is. I worked at UT Knoxville when we was on the team there. Very friendly guy.

cybermom4 on 02/09/2016:
It was a good game - I did miss most of the 2nd half - fell asleep but my spirit was there for the Broncos. I loved the superbowl MVP time. Joe Namath looked fantastic for 72!! Most of the guys really did look great. had to laugh at Terry Bradshaw and got really excited with heinze ward. Honestly - I didn't start watching the game until about 10 years ago, but I guess it gets ingrained in you early on.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/09/2016:
My sister is so good at maintaining her weight - always. The only time she ever gained anything was when she lived in ITALY for one year. She ate gelato most days. LOL....

...but my point is she loves bbq ribs. Sometimes a nice meal is what the dr orders.

Good morning

The past few day have been good but the weather has been a lot of rain.  Today it is cool and I say that with a little bit of a laugh because I know some people would call this heavenly but it is on the cooler side... lol  definitely not a tanny day even on my balcony that never gets the breeze.

So today I am taking the day to do some cooking for the next little while always a good thing to get out of the way for the sunny days ahead. 

Apart from that not much else new I am starting to look forward to the kids coming down and the grandkids are starting to get restless I hear from my son back home.  He told me its like when he was little and as soon as he got in the car he use to say are we there yet.... lol but for him it is how long till we leave every single day and sometimes a few times a day.... lol  I have started to stock up the house of kids food but not things that I like so I am OK.  Egos and things like that.  That is also why I am doing some cooking like last time when I made my spaghetti sauce.

Anyway all is good hope you are all well will talk later.

Hope your rain clears up soon. We've heard there is a storm expected again soon. Feb is supposed to be a very dry month here.

cybermom4 on 02/06/2016:
Kids are fun!! You sound like you have a great family!

Maria7 on 02/06/2016:
Hope you are having a good day. Hope you have a wonderful time with your family visiting.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/07/2016:
Enjoy your cooking and time at home :) Actually, it's been rather on the "warm" side here in NY. I'm sure you would call it "cold!" haha...

So you are preparing for the kiddies! I am sure it will be a very full house when they are with you Fran.

Maria7 on 02/08/2016:
Hope you are having a good morning. :-)

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

Expecting rain today so I plan to finish my book today it is getting really interesting of course it is one of these easy reading where you can tell the end after the first chapter but it is good to actually hold a book instead of using the computer system.  There is a good feeling to actually turning pages and just holding the book.

Not planning much cooking today will have to figure out what it will be its a surprise up to now.... lol  I try not to think of food when I am not hungry.

Wishing you guys a great day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 02/03/2016:
Yes, I like to read the actual book to in my hands rather than reading off of a tablet or other electronic device. Also, I like not having to look at a screen like I do all day at work! Holding the book in my hands is a great change of pace. It’s raining here too. Nice change of pace. Very warm for this time of year. Thanks for your advice to keep thinking positive thoughts. Looking to go home & read also. Have a nice, quiet night. Same, I try not to always think of food also! LOL. It gets so frustrating when food becomes TOO MUCH on my mind! It does feel like I am approaching this mindset… :/ Have a nice day, Fran.

OhioRaven on 02/03/2016:
I find when I do get time to read an Actual book, it's late in the day and it starts to rest on my nose just beforevi doze off. Now I listen to audio books as I go to bed. Have a great day, Puddy

grannyannie on 02/03/2016:
Love the kind of book I can't put down! I'm attached to my Kindle though.

cybermom4 on 02/04/2016:

Good morning

Great day food and water yesterday.

Great day today just got back from a walk on the beach will take a bit of sun on the balcony then I will figure out what to do with myself for the rest of the day.  Nothing to stressful as far as I can see.

Having beef stroganauff tonight with some noodles.  Sauce very calorie reduced believe me but it taste good and in my mind I think it is the same....  lol  that is what is important right I don't feel deprived. 

So tha tis about it for today a quiet day again.

Wishing you all the best.

Awesome50 on 01/29/2016:
Sounds like a nice day ahead of you. Calorie reduced sauce for stroganoff sounds great especially when you think it's the same as regular. That's a win! Enjoy the rest of your day.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/29/2016:
Sounds like a really nice day! that's great if the sauce tastes the same but lower in calories! nice deal!

grannyannie on 01/30/2016:
Lovely! Nothing better than a walk on the beach!

Good afternoon

All is good food and water.

A late afternoon rainy day but starting on Friday it will be clear skies and great weather for at least 6 days.

Not much going on I am in a slow mode with this kind of weather.  Saving my energy for better outside day.


Wishing you all a great day.
