Good morning all

My water on track 8 glasses but my food was off again yesterday.  I am not saying that it was crazy off track but just not up to my liking.  I have a hard time between thinking my food is good and on track and I am off track.  I dont have large off track moments but why even go off track?  Before I use to go off track and have big binges and now it is just small extra things that I have but the feeling is the same because it just is not on my food shcedule for the day.  I think it just pisses me off more than anything. 

I have a few errands to do today nothing substantial but we are having a beautiful sunny day and warm.  That is a nice change from the past few days.

Thank you for being there so that I can vent about the stuff going on.  Have a great day.

Sounds frustrating. Hope you find your track. Saw a good Dr. Oz show on cravings. Look it up if you got time. See ya.

lolla on 05/15/2013:
It is a bummer to have these moments when you just don't understand why you do things. I had one last night, there I was eating a bag of popcorn and i wasn't even hungry but there is something so soothing in eating that really puzzles me, I feel like I am addicted some times. hope you have a better day today!

SummerAndBeyond on 05/15/2013:
Hope you've had a good day and your cravings aren't getting you down too much! :)

Puddles on 05/15/2013:
Its not cravings it is just not sticking to my plan just adding just a little bit more here and here on the meals.

V on 05/15/2013:
Have a great day!

thenewmle on 05/15/2013:
If it helps, I write my plan the night before and base it on foods I have either cooked or packaged for the next day. It's crazy, but I won't eat it if its not planned out. I started that when I got here and it really made me feel accountable for my menu. It's like my script for the day for success. See ya tomorrow!

Good morning all

Water 8 glasses and food was absolutely on track.

I had such a good day yesterday.  There are days where all is good and you are just in the right track of mind.  I accomplished a lot of stuff around the house.  I even had time to pamper myself.  Overall a very delightful day. 

We had another cool day.  It is suppose to warm up by Friday just in time for our long Victoria Day weekend.  I also have to make sure I am stocked up since the store will not be open on Monday. 

Today I will try the new recipe that I got on here the Mac and Cheese with Zuchini.  I will let you know how it turns out. 

I do not have too much planned for today.  I am in such a good place today - mentally and spiritually. 

Hoping you all have a great day.

Tangalyn~ on 05/14/2013:
glad to see u doing so well... hope the new recipe turns out good.. sure does sound fantastic! hope u have another great day :D

skinnygrlwithin on 05/14/2013:
I love those days... you feel like you can conquer the world. I hope your recipe turns out well.. is it like pasta mac and cheese? or the one someone made the other day with cauliflower? I love mac and cheese so I'm always willing to try a healthy substitute!

Puddles on 05/14/2013:
Everybody have been talking about zucchini so much that I wrote that instead of cauliflower. Yes it is the recipe that was posted here the other day. Looking forward to see what it turns out like.

V on 05/14/2013:
I am sure it will all turn out deelish :P hey how's the arm and walking routine coming along? I am sure you are rocking them out!! Have a good evening Fran :)

Good morning all

Water 8 glasses and food good.

Lost only .1 of a pound.  But what the hell it is down.  Slow but steady.

Got my groceries done yesterday.  It was pretty much a regular day except for the snow storm. 

I really do not have much to report today.  I need to start getting back to my exercise. 

Hope you really have a great day.

Good morning all

Happy Mother's day to all mothers on this site.

Water was good 8 glasses and food a little bit off again. 

I have to work on my food today. 

I got such a cute surprise this morning.  For those who don't know my son lives about 8 hrs away from me.  He called me real early - actually I was still in bed.  He wanted to wish me a Happy Mother's day but he told me to get up and make some coffee and that he would call me back in about 30 minutes and we would have coffee together for Mother's Day.   We were on the phone for about one hour just like we use to do when he was little and he would jump in bed and spend time with me on mother's day morning.  It certainly warms my heart. 

Another surprise this morning is that i woke up to about 4" of snow on my car.  Can you believe that May 12 and we are having a snow storm. 

I have to go to the store today and restock my fridge with fruits and veg.  I am getting pretty low on supplies. I am really not looking forward to stepping on the scale tomorrow.  It will not be that bad but the progress has certainly slowed down a lot.  That is OK I am determine not to let it bring me down.   Easy does it.

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

We are having a cool sunny day.  Better then what they had predicted.  Thank God for that.  Maybe tomorrow mixed precipitation.  REALLY. give me a break.

Good morning

Water really low 2 glasses - food was good.

I had a diet coke yesterday - something I never do.  I never kept pop in the house when my son was growing up and I am not big on pop anyway but yesterday felt like having one. 

We are having rain today and it is -2 C really is this May or March.  Sunday mix rain and snow.  Can you believe this.  Great weather for Mother's Day. 

I hope you have a great Friday.

Good Mornin' , Puddy ! It's a brand new day ! I had some zucchiniin spaghetti sauce last night and thought of you. Hoping you have a Happy Mothers Day.

Puddles on 05/10/2013:
Thank you Raven. Hope you have a great weekend.

grannyannie on 05/10/2013:
The weather is being weird everywhere! I've given up soda as well. Have a great weekend, Fran.

skinnygrlwithin on 05/10/2013:
Wow!! I'm not sure what -2C equals in F but I'm gonna assume really cold.. cold enough to SNOW! Wow!!

And yes I'm not really a huge soda person anymore, but sometimes the fizzy bubbles sound so appealing :)

Puddles on 05/10/2013:
Yes it is low 30s. real cool.

OhioRaven on 05/10/2013:
Hey, Puddy. That zucchini pasta was brought in by someone at church. It just looked like something you would have made...you weren't at church last night, were you ? ? ? Oh and I've been off the soda since I've started here too. Just don't want it.

Puddles on 05/10/2013:
I could see using zucchini to do lasagna that would be nice instead of pasta. I will try that. I can't even remember the last time I had a soda. Not something I like to drink.

OhioRaven on 05/08/2013:
Are you staying in the same area after you sell ?

Puddles on 05/08/2013:
No - moving closer to my son's place about 8 hrs from this place. Still in Ontario though. Instead of being over Michigan stateI will be over New York state.

hollybelle on 05/08/2013:
Good luck with the house selling. Do you know where you want to live when you sell? My mom is about to put her house on the market. She has never done anything like it by herself before....

Puddles on 05/08/2013:
Yes already know what area and have looked at the availability.

grannyannie on 05/08/2013:
Good luck with the sale!
