Good morning

Yesterday my food and water was good.

Not too sure what today will bring but it is sunny and definitely worth being out and about. 

Thank you for all your comments yesterday.  I would do gardening but all I have here is my little patio and really it is not big enough for more than one flowing pot so that I have some colour and something growing for the Summer.  I find it has been had to find a new soical club after being away from this area for 17 years.  My girlfriend are still all working and married so they have more plans then I do.  I have to admit I do find the fact to doing things alone all the time is the boring part of it all.  Anyway will have to adjust.  I always find it easier when I am away during Winter. 

My eating routine is still very good and I seem to have that down path and find it easier every week.

Wishing you all a great day.

Read a good book? Any cultural things around where you live? Hike, ride a bike?

Horn_Of_Plenty on 06/18/2015:
Wishing you a great day too :)

I know what you mean by boredom...even my moring/evening commute gets boring! And when i'm almost at work these days, I debate taking a different street for a few blocks...but always decide it's dumb because the lights usually slow me down by just a few minutes...LOL...

yeah, its a GOOD THING to sometimes change things up....routine can def get BORING! :)

GottaDoIt on 06/18/2015:
I'm also fighting boredom in a new place and my job doesn't start until August. Reading has helped. Also, starting this eating change has helped. Sometimes it only takes a small change to break the monotony.

hollybelle on 06/19/2015:
When I'm feeling bored or tired of the routine in the warmer weather I try to go somewhere outside with lots of people like some of the free concerts we have in our downtown here or some of the community activities like Free Fri Flicks in one of our parks. DOn't know if you have similar things available, but whatever you do - have a good time!

Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water.

Got a lot of my stuff done yesterday and picked up all my groceries.

I made a large amount of vegs (cabage, carrot, yellow beans, onion) and added some beef (got a nice roast and cuts it all up very lean).  I just let it cook in broth and that was real great.  I will have that for a few days.

Today is a relax day no cooking no cleaning and the sun is out.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day for food and water.

Well we did get half of a sunny day and again another rainy and cloudy day.  I think Summer is suppose to kick in soon in about a week there is always hope.

Going out for breakfast with brother and s-i-l my regular Monday catch up time with family.

I have to get on track with some housework again.  I can't believe that I wish I had a cleaning lady.  I use to enjoy doing my cleaning and all that stuff but I think with the years of doing it I have become tired of it all.  Well so much for complaining because it will not change anything.

Wishing you all a great day and week.

grannyannie on 06/15/2015:
Well done. I'd like a cleaning lady to clean the bathrooms and wash the windows, otherwise I'm okay with the rest. Have a good week.

ohioraven on 06/15/2015:
Mornin' Puddy. Isvthis your Monday weigh-in ? I used to have a girl come to my place and clean once a week until she was arrested for something. I forget what it was now.

puddles on 06/15/2015:
I weighed myself during the week twice so I have given up the fact that it as to be on a specific day. It use to put too much stress on my weekend.

Umpqua on 06/15/2015:
You're doing great and I hope you get some warm and sunny weather soon!

liza36 on 06/15/2015:
Enjoy your breakfast with family!

horn_of_plenty on 06/15/2015:
I have a cleaning lady - usually once a month haha. Sometimes more and sometimes even less. Ah, you reminded me to schedule a cleaning! It's like a nice gift to come home from work and have the place spotless :). Thanks for your kind words. I will be trying to relax and rest my ankle but have also decided to push on with my exercise especially upper body. I will never give up :) sorry to rant on your page...that's what my own diary is for ;)

Summer kicked in in queens last week and this past weekend. Now we are sorta back to cooler, rainy days. I don't mind as I work and am indoors.

I hope you had a nice breakfast with family :)

Good morning guys

Yesterday as a good day food and water

Getting a lot of sleep the day before always gets my sleep system off track so last night was not a normal sleep pattern.  I was up and down slept for two hours then up for 3 then back down again.  So I really don't know if it is good when I get a long 10 hrs plus night. 

Today is just a regular day the only difference is that we are having a beautiful sunny day and that is a treat.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon guys


Yesterday was a good day food and water.


I got on the scale again this morning just because it felt like I had loss and yes 1 lb less.  I did not get up today until 11:45 am I got 10hrs of sleep I don't do that too often but sure felt good I must have needed it.  The body is the one that really runs the show and takes what it needs when it needs it.  The broblem is when we try to get in its way. 

I do feel a little bit more confident about my September goal now but its not a done deal yet.  I am certainly determined to get there and beyond God willing. 

I sure hope you are all having a great day.

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a real good day food and water.

I felt as if I had lost when I got up today and yes it was down 1 lb that is good. 

I had a mega veg. day yesterday because I did not want to loose some of them and actually the mixture was just so pleasant.  Anyway I still have some left for today and will incorporate them into my food for today.  I should learn something from that is that I should always cook too much veg. and that way my next day would be already planned.   The problem with that is I might just decide to polish it all off which is the addict attitute with a bottomless pitt.  lol 

So I did good and will continue on my journey.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning all

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

I seem to be able to get 4 or 5 glasses of water down lately.  It is still not something I enjoy but if it goes down all is good.  There are days where it just wont go down but not lately.  I just wish I felt like drinking more but it is what it is.

Such an unuasual week weather wise rainy, cloudy and on the cooler side.  We are in the middle of June and it seem Summer is not willing to start. 

I don't really have much on the list for today so it will be whatever pops up and maybe just a relax day. 

Wishing you a great day.

Umpqua on 06/11/2015:
We kind of skipped spring and went from snow to summer in New England this year. I'm fine with the 80s temps though - Oregon will likely be in the 100s and it sometimes hits 110 out there, NOT looking forward to that!

puddles on 06/11/2015:
Our weather this year seems to be going from Spring to Summer then going back to spring.

Turn your water bottle up. And keep chugging til you see the bottom. Have a Good day, Puddy.
