In the midst of a may snow storm....weird.

I found a great web site yesterday  with all kinds of health calculators

www.calculator.net/fitness-and-health-calculator.html

I will be making good use of that.

I'm not dieting per-se......but monitoring what I'm eating...and only eating cravings........and making sure the servings are small...only because I feel better if I don't over eat.

I woke up craving boiled eggs this morning...so that was what I had...then craved yofurt.......so I'm figuring protein and calcium are what is needed.

I will say one thing.......eating cravings does not make a pretty plate.....it can look very disjointed......and I'm finding humor in that. 

Feeling good except my spring wheezing has returned with a vengence......trees are budded....and now the snow...so that will tame it down for a couple of days.

Asthma and allergies are a nasty combination.....thank goodness for mucus relief/ type over the counter meds.......living on that stuff right now.........not a good time to be having breathing problems.

Not covid...just me and my crummy lungs.........

 

Donkey on 05/08/2020:
I don't have allergies but I've been experiencing coughing, etc. I feel like a walking death trap, spreading germs everywhere. I don't have a fever and my sense of taste has never been better, so I'm sure it's not COVID, too.

bearcountrygg on 05/08/2020:
I think we are all hyper aware now...and find ourselves monitoring constantly for the dreaded one......I think fever is the main clue.....I know at our house...cough, runny nose, wheezing, and red eyes...are just life....we do have allergies and asthma....but your cough is probably just seasonal.....but it does make coughing in public quite alarming now..how quickly things can change and be something we never could have imagined.....but we will get through this!!1


Horn_of_plenty on 05/08/2020:
I have allergies too right now but I’m only being affected for now with sneezing and itchy eyes ! When I was very young I would also have the wheezing ! Sorry for your discomfort ! It too shall pass :)

Like you eggs have been my go-to bc they last long in the fridge, are a protein, and affordable :) and easy to make and clean up after ! And taste good !

bearcountrygg on 05/08/2020:
Boiled eggs are a win all the way around...Love them!


Maria7 on 05/09/2020:
I think it is good that you are eating in a more peaceful way that helps control cravings.

bearcountrygg on 05/09/2020:
There are enough things to stress about.....much more peaceful like this.

The last few days have been enlightening and very peaceful......and confirmed to me that for  my own happiness...I need to follow my own path. 

Craving led eating as always...has a much better result for me..........now portion control is a lot easier......and something I am looking into............today I will be searching for any web sites that give me info on macros and balance so that while I'm following cravings I do make sure I am getting some sort of nutritional balance just for the health of it.

I'm also going to check on BMI and where I need to be with that to confirm where I am.

Doing some deep cleaning of the house and then daily checking everything and doing what is needed so that things don't get out of hand....I'm finding it a lot easier to maintain the house as well as the weight,than it was to suddenly having to do drastic things to make them right... I never  want to go back to those again.....I'm finding maintenance is a lot easier than the fight to get things under control.....When my life gets out of hand I'm just not happy....but when it is in control I am a lot more relaxed....tired...but relaxed.

I'm learning a lot about stress and it's effect on health........and I'm now working on cultivatiing a less stressful life.  Keeping up with things, eating cravings and just taking plenty of time to do things that I enjoy are working really well.  I'm working on peacefullness............meditation........and getting enough solid sleep. 

Anyway...........I'm putting things in perspective......and learning what I need to know to stay healthy and active ( back to the home gym again....I keep wandering away  from that)......but I do feel better when I take the time to use it.

Some things I know....eating a normal to large serving of anything makes me uncomfortable and sleepy.....very small portions energize me.  Exercise is hard for me to get started doing but I always feel better afterwards.  When the house is clean and in order...i am just alot happier.  Letting things go and thinking about what I need to do...is exhausting mentally.....now I just do it....( 1 2 3 4 5   and get up and get it over with).....works like a charm. 

Going to learn about macros and BMI and work towards balance with those......looks like a new hobby....LOL

 

 

 

 

Donkey on 05/08/2020:
I'm glad to read that you're ok! And enjoying the peace, quiet... of your item making, sounds lovely.

I'd be interested in hearing your opinion on macros. It's a different approach to counting calories, and I'd like to know your thoughts! :-)

I know a little bit about macros having done keto, since the ratios are skewed to fats. But I confess, I don't know a lot.

bearcountrygg on 05/08/2020:
Yup...just fine here.....Macros are interesting.......since I'm looking at macros for balance and not weight loss.....I'm looking forward to seeing if cravings equal a balanced diet.....I think it will...but over time.....I'm interested in seeing how it plays out. As interesting as keto looks......I don't think I will be doing that. Technically I guess I was doing keto back about 40 years ago....I joined a place simply called Weight Loss Clinic.....and they were testing ketones...so looking back....it was keto......I did lose....but it messed with my metabolism....so I will be just tracking nutrients.....from what I can tell.....my cravings are spot on.......but time will tell.....kind of a new hobby...LOL


Horn_of_plenty on 05/08/2020:
Same here - I find maintenance is much easier at this time than fighting for over control of things or fighting for perfection. I just know my limits at this time and I guess from the past I know to just fly with this .....

Like you, although my menu is not at all perfect, I do try for some balance so I get some satisfaction from my meals :)

Looks like it might b a really nice day here today so I plan to spend some time outside.

Since over the last few days...I've been tempted to start counting calories......although basically...my weight has dropped....I had gotten into the idea that I NEEDED to keep track of what I was eating....the scales actually are better when I don't........So for me.....I think counting anything food wise just makes me think more about food and that isn't good for me.  I just do better when I don't count.....I eat less.....I guess dieting did make me fat......and not dieting means i eat what I want...when I want...when I'm hungry...and my weight  stabilizes itself.  Scales this morning are right where I want to be.....so I'm going to stop "dieting".......to think that my dieting days began when i was actually at the right healthy weight for me...is just sad.......and it got out of hand because I "thought" i should diet...because it was a thing....if I had followed along with what I was doing...I probably would not have ever gained the weight........going to WW back when I weighed 130 pounds was crazy ...and now I see that myself...everyone told me....but i didn't listen....dieting made me fat.  I used to read Prevention magazine...plus all of the old womens magazines...that constantly promoted weight loss diets and healthy food eating......and i bought into it........while i was slim and healthy.............and I messed that up by being diet obsessed.........

Now...I'm back to doing what I did before I bought into all of that....I'm eating what I crave...when I'm hungry....and my weight...just automatically returns to where it belongs....I feel better...my attitude is happier and I have more energy.

Just a couple of days ago...I was planning to count again....but then i got on the scales...( I very rarely do that)......and I realized....I don't need any kind of a diet...I don't even need any kind of food pyramid or magazine or diet book...to tell me what to eat........I lost a lot of weight.....and I can manage that on my own....by just listening to my cravings....because i may have one day of a lot of one kind of food...and then it balances out...not in a day...but over a few days.....I've always been like that......but then "diets and balancing food groups" got in the way...and I started doubting myself.   I'm just better off if I get off the diet train.......my body knows what it needs.......I like my weight right where it is.......so I need to stop thinking about it.......and just be.......I think the scales need to be put away again.....I don't need them or diets...or thinking about food constantly.......my body tells me what it needs when it needs it. 

No more counting or weighting or diets for me........I'm back to where I was when I first started WW so many years ago......and I'm going to try to get over the idea that I need  to monitor food for any reason.

Donkey on 05/01/2020:
Welcome to the world of maintenance! I encourage you to stay here and discard thoughts that you need to lose more.


Donkey on 05/01/2020:
Oops, I just realized that my comment to your entry yesterday might be better applied to today, since you mentioned spending some time outdoors.

I love rain but after a few days, it's nice to see the sun.


Horn_of_plenty on 05/01/2020:
Congrats at reaching a happy place :) for me I’ll (I think) always want to count what I eat or at least think about it more than most folks.

I can’t wait to be outside tomorrow the weather is going to be amazing !

It rained all night again last night......on day 3 or 4 now......it turns out that what we heard here night before last was an explosion and not thunder........I swear it shook the house.........they were doing some bombing at camp Grayling.......( army reserve).....we sometimes hear it...but apparently because of the rain at the same time...it shook 3 counties...or at least that is what they are telling us...

We went to get the Walmart pick up yesterday...........those people that bring things to the car are so nice...never had a bad experience there ever.........we did a big stock up of canned goods........and had ordered meat and dairy as well..........there were 8 things that were just cancelled by them.....7 fresh meats and 1 canned veg..........and there were 28 substitutions and we accepted all of them..............................took a long time to disinfect it all....but worth it.

I do believe that is the biggest shopping trip I have made in my life and I never got out of the car......

Stocked now for a very long time and this time we got the things we forgot a couple of weeks ago.

Got on the scale this morning and it's down...so I'm happy with that......no more tight pants......Lots to get done around here today....so better get on with it....

Breakfast = coffee, egg, english muffin

Lunch = chicken salad (chicken, mayo, seasoning) and 2 100 cal packs (sweet)

Dinner = yogurt, cheese and crackers and 2 cookies

Got some laundry done today and cleaned up all of the cats areas.........took 2 naps but got up too early so it evened out.

Rained all day again so it was all inside work.....vacuumed, and lots of other cleaning....I don't know how 2 people can make so many messes.

 

Horn_of_plenty on 04/30/2020:
You must feel relieved to be stocked up on some of the things you were missing :)

bearcountrygg on 04/30/2020:
Glad to be able to forget about it now.


Donkey on 05/01/2020:
Today here is the first day in 3 without rain... until late this afternoon or evening. I'm so looking forward to the sun and warmth today!

Raining all day yesterday and a clap of thunder last night that sounded more like an explosion than thunder...actually had me fooled.....and the cat didn't knoow what to do.  Poured all night...and continuing today.......did have to run out yesterday to 2 banks and the gas station.....interesting......and did it safely..........yesterday the phones just rang all day......so tht happened.....and the Walmart an hour away...started taking pick up orders 1 week in advance....so we decided to place one........today is the day.....and will see what we get......noticed that we have been going through a lot of canned veggies so placed an order for more of those......and D wanted a few things we were out of...so will see how that goes........not buying any fresh produce at all..........family members are avoiding that too.....we miss that stuff...but canned is taking it's place.  Thinking that I  should probably be counting calories again......just for the fun of it......will see how things go after today.........noticed that the nearest grocery store's parking lot was not busy at all.....so we are considering doing our own shopping after this........

Coffee so far..............

 

innerpeace on 04/29/2020:
So far, I have only been to work. I find comfort being in my home. I do not think I'm going to be one of those who run out to a restaurant or movie theater just for the sake of going. I'm not 100% confident that this thing will be over and I don't want to get sick. I'm glad you were safe and I hope everyone else takes the same precautions when things start opening up.

For some reason I feel people are spoiled for they have came out with quarantine fatigue...seriously? Though this next statement may be offensive or sound in some way prejudice - know that it is not meant that way, nor did I ever take it that way. When I was growing up in 1977-1983 -(from age 10 to right before I started my first job) and I would mumble the phrase "i was bored" - My step father would say - how can you be bored? You can run, jump, play, ride a bike and do anything you want. Think of a person in a wheelchair, they don't have that luxury -now go play!. You know those books you always read...go write your own. He would always change my perception and it would always change my attitude about being bored.

And maybe my experience being in Saudi Arabia helps me too. We were not allowed to go anywhere except on base or camp - we only talked to each other and didn't have the movies or restaurants and long guard duty hours staying in one plays for three or four hours at a time. Yes, i like being at home.

My husband says he's stir crazy. He needs to go somewhere and buy something. Any other time we wouldn't have money to go buy something - so why does he feel the need to do that now? Because he can't.

Anyway, I hope you continue to be safe! I enjoy your entries.

bearcountrygg on 04/30/2020:
I like being home myself...so it's not that difficult.


Horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2020:
Glad to see you going out and being careful ! Canned veggies is a good option indeed and tasty !

bearcountrygg on 04/30/2020:
I don't think I have ever used so many...LOL


Horn_of_plenty on 04/29/2020:
Rain is coming often here too. April showers !!

bearcountrygg on 04/30/2020:
SPRING!!!!


Donkey on 04/30/2020:
I think we're on day 3 of rain... makes everything more difficult. It might not be so bad if it were a warm rain, but temperatures aren't quite high enough.

bearcountrygg on 04/30/2020:
It should get into the 60's here tomorrow...so you will probably have a nice day tomorrow too.

Technically...yesterday was a carb binge....and today started the same way.........and as of this moment...I don't see any reason to do otherwise. 

I'm just rolling with it!

Group call from the Detroit Carpenters Union.....about pensions.........Last night..........yup....I'm just going to eat carbs to my hearts content.  End of story.

 

Donkey on 04/27/2020:
This too shall pass. As CEO of your life, if this is what you deem required, then so be it.

Is everything ok? D is retired; do you usually get calls about the pension?

bearcountrygg on 04/27/2020:
Only get calls about the pension when it's changing.


Donkey on 04/27/2020:
^Yep, that's what I thought. (((hugs)))

bearcountrygg on 04/27/2020:
Thanks.


Horn_of_plenty on 04/27/2020:
Praying for you and D :) stay well and sorry about the phone call.

Thanks.


legcramps on 04/28/2020:
I'm sorry about the phone call...doesn't sound like it was a positive one at all...I hope you are managing through it.

Thinking of you.

bearcountrygg on 04/29/2020:
Not positive for sure...but I guess our pension is in the same boat as so many others.........I will admit...it does point out the need to save when possible.

Up at 4:30 AGAIN.......not really wanting to lay around in bed...I'm now feeling like I'm wasting my time doing that...just to wait for a specific time...if I get sleepy later then I'm realizing that I will fall asleep then.  I did get 5 1/2 solid hours and calling it good.

Had a big breakfast of 2 fried eggs, an english muffin with butter and almond butter and a built bar with coffee............probably didn't need all that...it was more of a want than a need...but I know it will stick with me for  a long time.

Cranky dryer means daily laundry....I'm babying it along for as long as it holds out........so doing some small loads today.

Doing a lot of bedroom organization today....enough to keep me busy all day.

Paing a few bills and doing some online business....walking to the mailbox.....and ready for a little fresh air.

D is getting touchy.........and the snipeing is a bit of a thing again.......giving him some space...and I am ready for a little alone time myself...LOL....good day to spend organzing.

Horn_of_plenty on 04/25/2020:
I’ve been sleeping double your hours lol ! But lately I wake up time to time throughout the night ...not complaining:)

Absolutely love when my laundry is clean :-)

Space is what works best when people get that way - I’m having the same issue right now with Ricky

Enjoy your day it sounds wonderful

bearcountrygg on 04/25/2020:
I fell asleep in a chair this morning...then laid down after lunch and slept for about 20 minutes until the phone rang with a spam call.....LOL...I think it will be an earlier bedtime tonight.......I'm trying to break the habit of just laying there awake.......


Donkey on 04/25/2020:
I try to air dry as much as possible, either in the house or outside (weather permitting). My husband's clothes are so big, that letting them air dry a little bit makes the dryer drying time less. Right now, I have a bunch of t-shirts and sweatpants on every chair possible, drying for a bit.

Everyone is getting a little testy these days. I definitely felt it last weekend, Monday, and Thursday.

Day 43 of home/car quarantine...........and decided to start blogging my day

I watched a YT video yesterday about using the 5 4 3 2 1 countdown technique to overcoming procrastination and it worked...seriously...it may just be a life changer for me...when a thought comes into my mind.....about something that I want to get done........I count down...5 4 3 2 1 and get up and do it immediatly before I can make an excuse to put it off.......it is so satisfying and it really does get things done.

We got up at 4:45 today......coffee, news, some discussion and here I am now at 5:50 A.M. writing here........today I will blog, photograph food and see what I did with my day.........

6 to 7....checked FB, Email and walmart order.......we aren't buying fresh produce right now...and decided to stock up on canned goods...primarily vegetables because we are running out of those...order placed last night to be picked up next wednesday... they already  have taken things off of the list....but we will just be happy with whatever we can get at this point..........so far...no in store shopping...but I see that coming eventually....until then...it will be walmart pick up.  Started laundry...dryer on the fritz...so doing small loads for now. Bath, dressed.

7 to 8.....Truck part arrived so followed D to the mechnics and back again. Into the forrest.

Love this walkway over the road......saw some deer...but thankfully they decided not to cross the road in front of me. Dodged a cute little black squirrel.....

Back home to reboot laundy and make a quick breaskfast of 2 small apples, and 2nd cup of coffee.

8 to 9 Took old printer things out of office/den ...found some things to file and shred.  Watched a little of Dr Phil.

9-10 Cleaning den/office continues as well as laundy...dryer is getting worse...no repairman or new purchase though...will use this as long as I can...and then start hanging the laundry up/out.  Added a little to the walmart pick up order.

10 - 11.....went to mechanics to pick up the truck....back home to wet laundry...hmmmmm.....

11-12.....checking facebook, mail, etc.laundry, watched Governors new quarantine rules

12-1....Lunch was a chili dog, a half serving of a Knorrs pasta corn and sauce pkg and applesauce, clean up kitchen a little, unload dishwasher and reload/run, laundry

1 to 4.....Watching some you tube, wrapping up laundry...getting mail....just relaxing...after 4...I will get some more things done.

4 until bedtime........Early dinner of grilled chese, yogurt and a built bar.........finishing up laundry....dryer being difficult....will be doing some cleaning in the bedroom....and the kitchen and then settling down for the evening.

Kind of interesting how our governor changed her daily report time from 3...down to 11 this morning....this afternoon the Michigan legislature was meeting to overthrow her decisions...so she had to open things up here a little more....and stop the crazy rules she made....we can now buy seeds, use boats, bike repair shops will open........and people can now come up north to their cabins but she doesn't want them to shop in our stores....LOL...good luck on enforcing that one....she also extended our quarantine until may 15th.........we will still remai quarantined in this house....but the traffic on our little gravel road is a bit crazy tonight....this will be interesting.

Quarantine day ( house, yard or car) ...........number 41

This time of lock down....has made me realize that the bottom line is that we are all responsible for our own existance.  That's really a good thing...it may sound scary...but on the contrary...it is comforting to me.

I truly am the CEO of my life.......I can make all decisions......I can run my life like a business....with the bottom line being my own welfare, what makes me happy, what makes me feel secure, what makes me healthy or unhealthy...all my choices.....no matter what past choices may have been unproductive.....I can choose to adjust...correct....move on....and ....look to what is best for me.

I can take inventory of what I have, spiritually, healthfully, materially, and financially.

I can determine what I need...what I am low on, what I need to load up on, what I may need, what calms me and makes me feel secure and safe.

I can choose to do what makes me feel safe and secure.

I am in charge.......not of the world, not of what happens outside my door, but what I make of the life I have within my walls........I can make it anything I want it to be,....I am the CEO of my life...I am a free thinker......I am not a sheep that follows blindly......I am one who often ( but not always) sees through the smoke and mirrors....at what is happening and I can choose what works best for me...I feel empowered..........and in control of what choices I make.......it is exhilerating actually....it makes it a lot easier to cut to the bottom line.....cut out the junk, cut out the excuses, cut out the distractions....put myself first and take care of me..........not the easiest thing to do for a caretaker type like myself.......but it can and will be done.........while I have always put myself ( by choice)...on the back burner...making it easier for others to fulfill their own needs while mine were left to fend for themselves......and by then I was too tired to care....I'm looking at what I really have not done for myself...and that is to seriously take care of ME. 

I'm looking at things a bit differently lately........

We are all the CEO's fo our own lives....while giving a nod to others and treating them with kindness...we can actually do what is in our own best interest...be true to OURSELVES and let others be true to themselves too.......and just manage our lives like they are  a business that needs a level head, planning, carrying out plans, and doing what makes the most sense to us..........take inventory.......and make a plan.....( for me...that will be spiritual, financial, health, food , medical, physical security, and other supplies.)..........

I have been sleeping like a log for about 6 to 7 hours each night....dreaming but not scary stuff......more like enlightening stuff..........If I don't actually lay down and take a nap every day...then I actully fall asleep in a chair...at the computer etc...so I'm assuming if I need to sleep I will...naptime or no.....it just happens...LOL

I'm noticing that the smaller the meal...the more energy I have....the larger the meal (or snack)...the less energy......

I'm noticing things.......that I didn't notice when I was taking care of everyone else.......it's me time....It's a new experience for me....( I have lived in a world of mostly people that were all about themselves...and I made it all about them too.)...MY FAULT!!!

NOW.......I'm CEO of my own life and it's all about me......WOW...that's a heady feeling!!!!!

legcramps on 04/22/2020:

bearcountrygg on 04/22/2020:

Despite feeling overwhelmed by a lot out of our control bc of this virus we are still lucky enough to have a lot of power of things that are totally in our control. There are so many things that are still left up to us to decide <3

Days are flying by.....Yesterday was some phone calls....sons.....a friend from the past that it was so much fun catching up with....our lives have changed so much over the last 40 years....and 2 1/2 hours on the phone felt like 15 minutes...lots of laughs...some serious stuff for both of us...and it felt like we were back in the mid 80's again.........Loved chatting with her. 

Yesterday meant dropping the truck off for repairs...picking it up later...and will repeat the process again Monday when the last part comes in.  Hopefully we can drive it out of the garage monday...or maybe DRAG it out....??????????  Will have to wait and see.....but it's not going into gear.

Sleeping like a log lately....staying up later.....falling asleep in a chair at random times.....LOL......but bedtime sleep is perfect.........so enjoying that.

Getting some old magazines read....boy...they had piled up...I'm reaching the bottom of the pile...and finding some from 2018....no more subscriptions for me....need to start working on the bookcases soon........hopefully the free library in the foyer of the local grocery store is still there ( it may not be)...because I have plenty of books to donate to them...but tossing the old magazines..........the donations are piling up...hopefully soon I can drop things off again.........

My Mom used to say that her "stuff"...is what held her house down...I would always ask her if she believed in gravity....and I don't think she got it......Now her stuff is holding my house down...LOL.....

I feel like I'm full of energy today again....and need to just get busy around here....always so much to do.......I don't think It is possible for me to ever get bored here.....I LOVE being at home......

Bagels need to stop coming home with me...I think I may need an intervention........breakfast = coffee, bagel, butter, natural PB, honey and yogurt......

Spending the morning doing paperwork....

I feel like this week flew by as well! What's that all about? I'd think it would be the opposite. That's ok though, I'll take it!

I love being home, too. Once again, at work, we had that conversation that what the boss is saying we feel, is actually what HE feels and that the rest of us would be perfectly happy to be at home.

D and I think the older we get...the faster it goes....but lucky you Donkey....you are young....and have a lot more time.... The boss is keeping the business open because he can....does he own the building...you mentioned that his daughter has a business downstairs.....he is probably mainly concerned with her business....one thing though......a paycheck is a paycheck.....

Lol I was thinking If I wanted to get bagels but knew it wouldn’t help me - but chocolate is doing the trick over here :) now onto Hershey’s Hugs which are small and don’t kill ;)

You sound good and happy and it’s great to catch up with friends on the phone :)

In a good frame of mind.....it takes a lot to get me down. Bagels are so carb loaded...UGH.

See, I would agree with you about the boss EXCEPT that most of us can work from home - or at least abbreviated hours at the office and the rest from home. It makes NO SENSE to have Male Co-Worker sitting at his desk all day, in discomfort, with nothing to do. Or Mistakes Girl sitting at her desk watching Netflix all day.
