Good morning all

Yesterday was a real good day food and water was up to 5 glasses.  I am getting there again with the water.

I got all my groceries done yesterday.  I did the 3 stores and manage to spend about $200. to get my cupboards back up to normal.  Amazing how all the little things add up.  It is good that I took advantage of all the sales.  My first month back is always more expensive then my regular monthly food bill.  I am happy that I only have to buy food for one and not a family of four. 

Tomorrow I go over to my son's for dinner.  I am not to sure what is on the menu but will try to keep it safe and not over indulge on the worst item on the menu.  My two grandkids are real rabbits and love their salad so I know there will be a big salad and that works for me also.  I have never seen kids go crazy over salad like them.  I always make a ceasor salad when they come over and we are usually 5 for dinner and I make enough salad for 8 people.  They are not too crazy about many other vegetables. 

Now the next thing on my list of todo is house cleaning.  Things are moving along very well. 

My todo list is going down considering I have only been home for about a week tomorrow.  It is also getting close to the time that I have to get my taxes done for the year but that is on the list a little further down. 

Hoping you all have a great day.

I find it so hard to get enough water myself. Any tips? Glad you are back home, enjoy the grandkids and their rabbit salad. Great that they eat that way, probably they will learn to like more veggies as they grow. Happy Easter!

puddles on 04/03/2015:
I have no tips about the water because for me it feel like a punishment having to drink the water. I do it because I have to and I have never found a joyful way of doing it. It is a get it over with kind of thing. lol


museumgirl on 04/03/2015:
hehehe, well that won't work for me! I'll just keep putting water bottles in the car and pretending I like it! :)


grannyannie on 04/03/2015:
I like water, my DH doesn't. I'll drink an entire litre at the gym just in one hour and 15 minutes. More when I get home. Good think your grandkids like salad. My grandkids like certain fruit and few vegetables, and otherwise junk. :(


Maria7 on 04/03/2015:
Good that you got your shopping. That is good that you know there will be salad. When Hubby and I eat out, I usually try to get that on my plate first. :-) Hope you have a good day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a good day food and water was 4 glasses.

I got everything done yesterday - laundry/banking/appointments for car.  It was a very productive day.

We are having a little bit of snow this morning but suppose to clear up by mid day and then it will be very mild in the double digits. 

I am doing the grocery runs today.  I have to hit 3 different stores today in order to take advantage of the sales.  I will be in and out of home with bags because will not be able to leave the things in the car too long so I rather be safe then sorry. 

I think I might just be on a small plateau I do not have the feeling of any weight loss.  My weigh-in is Monday and I know that this is not the end of the world my body is probably taking a little break to readjust and then it will start loosing again.  At this point I will not let this derail me.  This is just part of my journey.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning DD pals

Yesterday was a good day food and still low on water.

I really have to start concentrating on the water again.  It is hard to get back to drinking water once you skip it for a few day.  Water has never been one of my favorite things to drink and that makes it easy to get away from it. 

I had a wonderful visit with my friend yesterday.  I enjoy having company over.

Today I have to get some laundry done. 

I have to go to my bank and get some stuff done there.

I have to go to my car dealer because I have some recalls and need an appointment.

So that should keep me busy for the day.

Wishing you all a great day.

Glad you had a good day yesterday. Looks like you have a busy day planned. Hope you have a good day. :-)

Sounds good! Keep it up. :)


Umpqua on 04/01/2015:
I'm glad you had a nice visit with your friend and are getting caught up on your chores. I hope you have a productive day!

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day food and again water was low.  I have to work on that.  It seems once in a while I get off the water thing and it is always hard to get back to drinking it again.

Today I am having a friend come over for coffee.  It will be nice to have company.

It is quite cool today but the sun is shining and that makes a big difference.  I enjoy the sunny day. 

I am looking forward to doing my groceries because my imagination seems to still be on holidays.  I can't figure out what to do with what I have in the house and then I don't feel as satisfied with what I have prepared.  It is important to enjoy what I eat because if I don't I keep looking for something interesting to eat.  I know this grocery will be expensive because of all the little things that you use only once in a while.  I have been checking the sales and this will also result in going to several stores I might as well take advantage of the sales since I have the time to do all the store anyway. 

So today I get some company and I continue doing some shopping on line and look at the places I need to hit and also finish putting my list together.

Wishing you all a great day.

I used to make lists for each store with coupons/ads... Not as organized as I used to be. Hope you were able to do what you wanted.

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day food and water a little low.

I got all my stuff unpacked and put away.  I am getting back into my at home routine.  I have to do a little bit of cleaning - how funny it is that a house with nobody in it can get dusty.  The plan for today is to now get the house up to par and then everything will be set to just start into my routine here. 

I have a major grocery to make this week at some point since I cleaned out everything in the fridge when I left and sent it all to my son's place.  I will wait til Thursday because the end of the month is really busy here with everybody that got their pension cheques at the end of the month and do their shopping once a month.  The stores are so packed and lineups are long. 

That is about all that is going on here.  Wishing you all a great day.

That's great that you've settled back so quickly. I hope it's a good week for you!


Maria7 on 03/30/2015:
Hi, Fran. Glad you got settled okay. Good plan on waiting to avoid long lines! :-) Have a nice day.

Good morning to all

Yesterday was a good day food and water.

This will be my last post for a few days til I get home again.  I have packed away my scale have started loading up the car.  I should be home late Saturday night or real early Sunday morning.  It will take a few days to get back into my own stuff and then will start posting again.

Wishing you all a good next few days.

Good morning all

yesterday was good food and water.

Well today I officially turn 62 yrs young today sure does not feel any different then yesterday but the numbers are changing.  No great plans for today but my son e-mail to tell me the Saturday after my return we will all get together to celebrate.

We are having another nice day in the 70s today and sun is in and out so hopefully will be able to sit out again and get another little bit of sun.  I wish I could bottle it up and bring it with me at the end of the week because my son tells me that we still have lots of snow and it is still quite cool.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning

Yesterday was a great day food and water.

Today was weigh-in day and I am down 2 lbs this was a great week.  I might just make my goal of 230 for my return home and the end of March.  I have had a great Winter weight wise and food wise.  I have to wonder if I had not had company for one week what the outcome would have been.  The visit gave me a slight set back.  All in all it is all good and really do not have anything to complain about.  It is a process and it is over a long period of time which I have given myself.  I am on track to hit my goal by September and that is good news. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Umpqua on 03/23/2015:
Awesome work and congratulations on the loss! I think that we have to be realistic and there will always be visits, vacations, dinners out, etc. and we have to enjoy life too. As long as we're being mindful a majority of the time (and you are very good at that), we will succeed!

puddles on 03/23/2015:
Thank you M.


museumgirl on 03/23/2015:
congrats on the loss! I agree with Umpqua, that is part of life - and we need to enjoy ourselves, too. You have done great, and being on track is awesome!

puddles on 03/23/2015:
Thank you.


grannyannie on 03/23/2015:
Good job!


liza36 on 03/23/2015:
Congrats on your loss! Way to go!


biscottibody59 on 03/23/2015:
Good going! I can't say enough about your consistency in your efforts--really remarkable!

Have a great week!

puddles on 03/23/2015:
Thank you. I really do not see any other options right now it has to be done - when I decide I am like a dog on a bone lol lol.


thinnside40 on 03/23/2015:
Can go back and change it.... Keep going forward... WhoopWhoop!


Maria7 on 03/24/2015:
