Yeah....finally caught the computer with the wifi on......lucky me......it's been a battle............the logging trucks continue to rattle through here all day...plus we have a new added adventure going on....we are about a half hour from the Grayling military base.....and over the last few days...Michigan has taken to training military from all over the world here...so for the last few days....its tandem logging trucks racing by and helicopters overhead..(love the military anyway...logging trucks not so much)......somehow I feel like I am living in some alternate universe!!!!!  Add to that.... just a little sporadic wifi.............BUT...I'm excited.....the nearest walmart is getting grocery pick up on August 2nd.....I've been waiint for that......it will make it a lot easier to resist trying new goodies for sure......and since they are 45 minutes away...it will still be 1 and a half hours round trip.......it will save an hour or two....and a lot less impulse buying.  I was in our little towns crummy grocery store this morning...and ran into a neighbor.......I was kind of relieved to hear that she dislikes this store as much as I do.........just goes along with  what I've been thinking.  Got kind of scared yesterday while D was gone....some guy in a noisy van pulled into the driveway...stomped up on the porch....made some noise..( weird erratic knocking or stomping his feet ????).......literally saw him peeking into the window ( from another window).....heard him say "no ones home".......and thankfully he left.....I quickly called D...and left a message...he did call me right back...and I listened to the message I left on his phone later when he got home...and I sounded like I was scared to death....well yeah...I was.....D did get pics of his tire marks.....I really hate when this happens........it could have just been the wrong house.......but at the last house...I had 2 VERY scary encounters with strangers in the yard /driveway front door....that were not accidents......they just thought no one was at home....when I let them know I was....they both got out of there fast........running for their cars and throwing gravel with their tires........UGH.  Maybe I should have my own gun.....but I really don't want one......

Anyway........haven't fallen off the earth yet....I read here when I can........why do they keep coming out with new high cal foods....???   No need to answer that!!!!  I am awating the grocery pick up at walmart so that I never even see that stuff........!!!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/23/2019:
hopefully it is just some innocent mistake this time at your house. i'm sure i'd be pretty scared too. luckily it seems you are over that incident!

that's awesome you will have a new way to order groceries and get what you want as well as a closer drive.

also, that's pretty darn coincidental with the logging trucks combined with helicopters. must be a BIG RACKET...quite the opposite of country living i am sure!

BearCountryGG on 07/23/2019:
Yes....we have lived in the middle of a really big city...and it was quieter than this...LOL


innerpeace on 07/24/2019:
That would be scary to me as well. I watch too much Dateline and 48 hours and I would be freaking out!

BearCountryGG on 07/24/2019:
He came back a few minutes ago......freaking out here.

Internet is on...so taking advantge of it now.......sat down and wrote cks for bills and got a card ready for a 92 year old aunt.......stopping at the bank with a 48 cent....48 cent...yup...a check for 48 cents....LOL......I will be sooo happy to get rid of that thing...just what were they thinking????  It is for a dividend from some off shoot stock by G.E.,...........that thing cost more to process and mail than it was worth......crazy!!!!

A quick grocery stop......and post office...and then home......cleaned out 2 litter boxes.. that is always fun!!! Threw a load in the washer....and I am on my way........just coffee...will figure out my breakfast when I get back if I'm hungry.

One son called while I was grocery shopping...letting me know that a big storm was heading our way...........got home before it started.........ate a late breakfast and then a late lunch.....he called  again later and we chatted for about an hour......more storming to come...I love a good loud storm......rain on a metal roof is especially neat.

 

innerpeace on 07/15/2019:
I did bills today this morning, but I paid mine all online, funny how one click of a mouse and your banking account is depleted.

BearCountryGG on 07/15/2019:
LOL...so true...but at least it was there when it needed to be!!!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/16/2019:
LOL a 48 cent check!? what are we, in the 1900's again!? haha

Happy bday to your Aunt :)

I cleaned my hamster's cage last night....AND FORGOT to add the VINEGAR into the water!!!! so, we'll see how long it smells clean since i only cleaned the cage with WATER ! i was rushing, as you can see! i didn't realize till i had finished...when i realized that nothing smelled of vinegar and ...oh! ...it's because i didn't use it! hahaha

i'm glad you got to catch up with your son, sweet :)

Looks like a nice day out......our wifi is still off and on.....it seems to be catch as catch can.........all is going well, and getting a lot done........more and more I'm noricing that small servings are working best....it's was hard at first to cut the serving sizes but I really do notice that I feel so much better.....I'm convinced...that the McDonalds supersizing started something that got so out of hand that I actually forgot what a normal serving size was.....restaurants servings are also huge........for me...there is truly no reason at all to feel like sitting down and vegging  is the only way to end a meal 3 times a day...........staying in the comfort zone of not full and not hungry is a lot more like living...............

Well ...better get off here before I get bumped off the internet again and lose this.......will be back when I can.

Maria7 on 07/14/2019:
Glad you are having a good day and I agree about the supersized servings...was not like that when we were coming up. Also, I responded to your comment from yesterday below...

BearCountryGG on 07/14/2019:
Very true.....I had no weight problems until the serving sizes changed.....I guess it was easy to fall into that trap....


Horn_of_plenty on 07/14/2019:
I agree about the meals 3x a day...i have no desire to ever eat full portions of restuarant size and servings/portions of typical meals 3x a day for breakfast/lunch/dinner. i'd def be sleeping all day bc of a food coma! LOL

enjoy your day getting things done :) My afternoon from noon till 3pm was like that...now a little veg time. ;)

BearCountryGG on 07/14/2019:
I just really realized that I just feel better with less food...more just bogs me down...I knew how I wa feeling....but I was forgetting inbetween meals...that I need to cut back on heavier foods...LOL....foodies...and their ( my)...memories...LOL


Donkey on 07/14/2019:
Portion control = 100% my problem.

We've talked about this before on DD. I think it was InnerPeace who mentioned something about eating the whole (muffin? cupcake?) in one of her entries.

When I had a food scale, I was just amazed at how much I was misjudging my portions.

Hope your WiFi situation improves -- at least it's good that you have it some of the time. It could be worse -- out ALL the time!

BearCountryGG on 07/14/2019:
I think we have been braiwashed to think more food is acceptable.......it does make it easier for companies to serve and charge more.....no wonder we struggle sometimes....I remember my sister in laws amazw=ement when they put her on a diabetic diet and she found out what a serving of pasta was......she was shocked. The wifi is a real bummer right now...it has been out today again.......

YAYYYYY...WIFI is working this morning.......internet on phones mainly can make us a bit crazy around here......happy to have the phones verizon internet to fall back on....but there is just nothing like the computer and it's WIFI....and my phone just does not work well with DD for some reason...........so..........I have had plenty of time to do other things...LOL...like THINK!!!  LOL...LOL...LOL....I had a little  talk wiith myself and I am such a good listener!!! .....................................and while I have heard things for many years....like...walk the walk...don't talk the talk...or the other way around....and behave your way to success.......and quit thinking about it and just do it and get it over with!  If you want to get something done ask a busy person because they will make time for it.....an idle/lazy/unmotivated person will just find reasons why not to do it and so on and so forth....and I acknowleged to myself that I am a vascillator ( is that a word?)....I can spend all of the time in the world putting things off.....almost anything that I do not absolutely love to do!

I once had a job that I loved so much that I actually forgot that they were going to pay me to work there............and I was often quite surprised to find the paychecks at the time clock.......now that is living!!!!....Working at a job that is a joy...so much so that you would do it for free!!!!  I have also found unlimited wonderful joy in being a wife ( since the age of 16).....a mother to 2 before I turned 20...and a foster mother to 8 infants and toddlers ...often with three in diapers and bottles at the same time......I was made for those things...they came easily to me and I loved almost every moment of those.........BUT......I really NEVER put that kind of effort into myself.....taking care of a husband, children, foster children that had fetal alcohol syndrome and were born to drug addicted parents and mentally ill parents....caring for my parents for 7 years in their 80's.....was what I did......BUT.......I never really focused on myself....my mind was too full of focusing on all of the others.......I have a drawer full of make up.....I have several different curliing irons and other types of things that would mean thinking about myself for a change....I have a closet full of clothes...yet I usually just grab something from the laundry basket  or dryer...and take a bath and then throw it on....something that I just wore a couple of days ago....it's always clean...but it is rarely different...or interesting...or memorable in any way.  Makeup....and doing anything to my hair other than washing and brushing it....is the usual.  Well.......my husband is a big boy and very self sufficient...LOL.....all of the children are grown and on their own......and here I am......still not really taking care of me.................not really............I have the time now...yet...it just doesn't occur to me.....it seems I'm always...WAITING for someone else to need me.!!   UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Does anyone else wait for me to need them????? NOOOOOOO...... they are always there IF I need them........but they don't just put off their lives and wait!!!! 

I'm thinking I should just do a total life redo....MY LIFE....ME FIRST......Me.....Me....Me....wow..that seems funny weird to me.....I have truly NEVER focused on myself!  I have always waited for someone else to need help and then I run to their rescue.......I do think that something D said at the hospital the other day really woke me up!!!  He was having a colonoscopy...and I was his "escort"....LOL...first was a phone call and I heard him say "you don't get any more responsible than her".........then...a   few days later at the hospital.....the lady at the desk asked my name and asked if I was his RESPONSiBLE driver....I nodded yes...and he said..."You won't find anyone MORE responsible than her".......and I realized than that  it all had worked super well for him, the kids and my parents for.....forever!  But......The one not taking care of ME was ME!

It's going to seem really weird....but for a change...I will consider myself first...and then others after...just like almost everyone else in the world does.........this sounds weird to me...and scary and daunting...but it may just be a new kind of fun for me.....i will crack out that make up.......look around in my closet and put together some different outfits.....and see if I can dress this new me up a bit more........

....we are still dealing with thelogging trucks....but we have had some fun watching the new neighbors move in....they are down a few houses from us....we do live in an amish community...but none on our rd......... a HUGE amish family with 9 children have been in the process of moving in for the last couple of days.........horse drawn buggies, and a whole bunch of little boys in straw hats and suspenders...and little girls in long dresses and bonnets.....always laughing and chatting away keep going by on bikes and in various buggies....hauling their posessions to their new home......this new turn of events makes us really happy...because the people that just moved out of that house were loud and obnoxious.......we would much rather listen to happy amish kids any day.

Also....since I have been counting calories or points or both now for so long....and almost always staying under 1,500...and usually around 1,200 cals.......rather I count or not.......I think I can trust myself now to not spend my day counting.......it just seems to be a habit now.........of course every once in a while i will go over...and sometimes I'm under....but I think I can stop the actually counting...unless that backfires...then I will begin that again........clothes have been the best gauge for me.......keeping on keeping on.

 

 

 

innerpeace on 07/12/2019:
I guess being in the military putting make up on and curling my hair was just not something I grew up doing. So to me that doesn't mean I'm not taking care of myself - OK but I don't either (take care of myself) but putting on makeup is the last thing I want to do. And I guess wearing a uniform for 20 years, heck like you I wear the same outfits every week, a different shirt with the same black pants. I do wear concealer to hide my awful skin blemishes still running rampant at 52...and I dry my hair. Which sometimes I want to get it cut short so that extra 15-20 minutes spent on blow drying could be used elsewhere...like maybe sleep.

I think mine is the excuse thing. Just last night I was getting off the couch at my back and body was hurting...this is why I don't work out or exercise, I'm so sick of my body hurting, why make it hurt more? I would rather not, and I'm working to get out of this mind set...

We will always be a work in progress. The older we get the faster time goes, so now that it was just the 4th, like yesterday, I'm thinking if I stick to a plan of any kind it will be next month tomorrow and I could have already lost all my weight. Wishful thinking anyway.

I'm glad you got your wifi back for a minute, I think using DD on my phone is tedious. Have a great day, I'm off to work on myself :)

BearCountryGG on 07/12/2019:
I'm thinking that my yoyo weight situation has been about my lack of caring for myself over the years......,if I had been taking care of me as well as I took care of them it probably would not have happened. I also wonder where I would be weight wise if I had worked harder.....and YEAH...WIFI!!!


Horn_of_plenty on 07/13/2019:
yes DD is wayyyy better on a computer than the phone! i've had the same experiences..

Totally support you taking more care of yourself for a good change. I have a friend with not the same background as you, but, she also grew up not caring for herself and just caring for her family (she's one of 4 siblings) and parents. she sometimes suffers from forgetting to care for herself and does things that do not help her but cause her to suffer. that's not you...i'm just saying, she's used to growing up without putting herself first.

So nice you will definitly have nicer neighbors now. I grew up around a mormon family with similar amount of kids. they'd sing at the piano together and were a very musical family - at least one of them still taking part as a career in the arts today.

You begin to know how much to eat based on experiences so it does make sense you could begin to count less :)

enjoy your day and some new outfits and possibly makeup.

Regarding makeup, i always feel "dirty" with it on and love to wash it off my face as soon as possible. I don't even wear makeup to work - only special occasions now or get togethers that are bigger and just occasional too. I think i'll wear just light makeup tonight....not a fan of sweating with it on in this summer heat. LOL.

BearCountryGG on 07/13/2019:
I know a lot of women feel dirty with make up on.......for me...I actually feel better...I have had really dark under eye circles for years...and when I'm wearing makeup....i can cover them up....so it's a plus for me.....the dark circles are hereditary....old photos never lie...LOL


Donkey on 07/13/2019:
I agree that I do not necessarily believe that make-up is required for self-care, but I know what you mean. Isn't it nice to have a flash of color on one's cheeks? Or a nice shade of pink on the lips?

I'm very basic, most of the time, when it comes to make-up. I wear powder, to even out my skin tone and also because my nose and forehead get shiny. I wear something on my lips - usually lipstick, but sometimes gloss with a tint - to liven up my face. I don't wear eye make most of the time because I wear contacts. During the day, I put in drops or rub my eyes -- and neither of those activities work well with eye make-up on, LOL.

I do pamper myself with skin and hair treatments though. Especially skin.

My wardrobe could use a complete make-over, but sadly, body image issues prevent me from ever doing anything about it. I need Stacy and Clinton or those guys from "Queer Guys for the Straight Guy" except it would be for this gal.

BearCountryGG on 07/13/2019:
Under eye dark circles are a problem for me..concealer is a big help there.........I need to freshen up my wardrobe too....these old clothes...are so OLD!!! LOL


Maria7 on 07/13/2019:
It is good that now that you finally have time for yourself that you are realizing that you can kick back some and enjoy taking care of you and your Hubby after having lived a life of caregiving to others.

BearCountryGG on 07/13/2019:
It's funny Maria......it's a habit that can be hard to shake.....but I need to shake it.


Maria7 on 07/13/2019:
Yes, and I guess we will always be 'caregivers'...but we need to look after ourselves, too, something that we seem to have both been guilty of not doing in the past when our lives have been so wrapped up in making sure that others are okay and doing all we can to make sure they are, while ignoring our own well-being.

BearCountryGG on 07/13/2019:
I'm realizing that by my hovering over all of them I crippled them in a way...I was too eager to "save" them.....and it taught them to just look to me to fix everything.....I guess I was relaly not doing them a favor.


Maria7 on 07/14/2019:
Regarding your above comment:....You and me both...That taught them dependency on us instead of personal responsibility for themselves...so now, what I am encountering with my newfound caregiving independence to certain ones who are able to do for themselves, is it is harder for these grownups to realize that things have changed and they have to be responsible for their own needs. But, like you said, we did them NO FAVORS by our doting over them and worrying about them, trying to make sure all was well with them...we just caused them to feel unable to take care of themselves, I think.

BearCountryGG on 07/14/2019:
yes.....totally agree.....but...if we step back a bit...they will figure it out I think!

For some reason our wifi has been going off and on for the last couple of days......it's on for the moment but it doesn't last long......so just putting this out there...I have no idea what they are doing......will try to get back here off and on as things clear up.  One thing is for sure..when I don't have the internet I do get a lot more done...LOL.........

 

EDIT....just discovered our problem...it's the logging trucks tearing up and down our road......one just sped by...actually shaking the house ( unbelieveable)...and the wifi popped back on.....!!!  Our underground wires come from the other side of the road...and the trucks are shaking everything so badly around here that they are now affecting the wires..... makes me wonder about the electic wires now...they are underground too.  Right now I'm just thankful that we have an all wood house with knotty pine walls and ceilings.....if we had drywall or plaster I think there would be further issues....and since this is a government  (Michigan) forrestry clearing project.......it's not only not likely to be taken care of quickly........but they aren't going to care what damage it's doing to residents.......They are stripping the forrest here...to sell the lumber most likely to China from what we hear.......

 

This used to be a solid 100 year old forrest..........and now looks like a wasteland.  Michigan needs the money...and there are miles and miles of forrest here that looks just like this and they are hauling it away right past our house every day........so...they have finally affected everyone on our road by shaking our underground wires loose and rattling our houses all day.......so much for the peace and quiet of the country........

 

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/10/2019:
that is soooo annoying! i hope it gets fixed soon! maybe there's heavy branches again or a tree issue like the last time?


legcramps on 07/10/2019:
LOL, isn't it true about getting more done without wifi?! Four of us were 'watching' a netflix show the other night. We were all sitting on my couch, in the same room and everything - doesn't happen very often! And as we were 'watching' this show, I looked around, and we were ALL on our phones! Or iPads. Oh my goodness, it was unbelievable!


innerpeace on 07/10/2019:
That is so very sad to me. I hate depleting natural resources. I hope they are replanting everything they take. I thought they were just supposed to thin out forests and take every fourth tree instead of making them bare like that. Still sad to me. With that being said, it sucks that this affects your wifi. I hope it deosn't get to your electricity.

Couldn't get in here on my first couple of tries this morning....and so happy to see Dd is okay now.........georgous day here....feeling much better today.....breakfast was maple oatmeal, 1 apple, peanut butter a bite of cutie ( rotten..,had to throw them all out)...and 2 cups coffee = 522 cals

Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/09/2019:
breakfast = tasty!

we're having a slew of gorgeous days too!

Went to bed at 10 last night...too early....slept off and on until 2.....got up at 3:30...1 cup coffee....back to bed at 4:30....slept until 7......woke up all wonky...needing sugar...so my planned breakfast was forgotten and I headed for the poptarts.....UGH...as unhealthy as they truly are.....they are one breakfast that straightens out my blood sugar...I always have a box of them in my car.......they are always in the pantry........as crazy as they are...they work every time.......I added another cup of coffee and a banana...and I'm beginning to feel human...........How can something so bad for me make me feel so much better???????...................It doesn't make any sense but I guess it doesn't have to. 

I had planned to get some things done today.....but instead i think I will just do laundry and a few odds and ends...phones been ringing and i'm fine with that.........probably will be  a low key day......and i will stay up a lot later tonight and only go to bed when i'm actually tired. 

That not so healthy breakfast was 487 calories

Well...just kind of feeling tired and crummy today....can't stay warm........itchy eyes.......so not my typical day........maybe that is why sleeping was an issue last night.....not really wanting a regular meal......just kind of snacking on things....but I am getting a lot of laundry done....and putting it away slowly.......not a lot of energy today......i think I will just go with the flow today and hope tomorrow is better.

innerpeace on 07/08/2019:
I love pop tarts too...

BearCountryGG on 07/08/2019:
They really do raise mhy blood sugars when they are low....and it's nice that I like them too....LOL


Horn_Of_Plenty on 07/08/2019:
i need to change my down comforter for something lighter. i realize part of my cruddy sleeping is from waking up in a sweat!!!!!! every night!...just on the weekend it was easy to get back to sleep. also i think i need to wash my sheets as they are sandy from a beach visit lol.

i hope you feel better...sometimes sugar is what the dr ordered!!!!!

BearCountryGG on 07/08/2019:
Sugar did help as usual.......yup...sandy sheets...NOPE...LOL


Horn_of_plenty on 07/09/2019:
Last night i only used a sheet, which wasn't warm enough LOL...so tonight i have put a thin blanket on my bed as well...to test out today,Tuesday. should be perfect :) for the rest of the summer!

Okay...I'm awake now......just going to spend the day relaxing.....eating hot dogs...and just basically kicking back.............Tomorrow.......the serious work starts anew!!! 

I'm looking forward to some hard work....but first...today happens!!!

 

Horn_of_plenty on 07/07/2019:
OMG adorable photo of your cat!!!! soooo cute! but i must say, there's a mischievous look in "her?" eyes!

BearCountryGG on 07/07/2019:
Oh yeah!!! That look means...get up....pet me.....open the door to the garage so I can try to sneak out there...if you don't hurry up and meet my standards I will go find some woodwork to scratch up...that will get you up!!! He is a little bit ornery right now...I think the AC gave him a little cold....extra wet nose and runny eye......poor little guy just wants what he wants...LOL

It's beautiful outside.....I'm looking forward to getting out there in awhile.    Breakfast on the deck sounds good today. 

Thinking of switching the exercise room around today to make it a  little more efficient.  I've been thinking about putting some hooks on the wall for exercise bands and just organizing better.  The other day I put a couple of timers in there and I loved that......I had been using my phone....but these 2 timers actually tick and it seems to keep me moving.......I also learned along the way that watching  you tube videos also makes the time go faster........anything that helps and keeps the movement going is energizing, makes the time go faster and keeps my momentum up, is well worth it.

As usual...there is a  lot to do....never any need to just sit and vege around here.......I like to keep up with things so that they don't pile up.....I've tried it both ways...and keeping up with everything is the best for me.  It never takes very long to get out of control.....life is just like weight.......slack and lose control, deal with things immediatly and all stays well. 

Still figuring that I won't count today or tomorrow...and then counting on Monday will be fine........I would say i'm sticking right where I was a few days ago...or even losing a bit......I'm looking forward to the day when I just don't even need to give any of this a thought again...getting close right now.....but a few pounds to go....I do know that I just seem to stay between 1,200 and 1,500 cals naturally without thinking about it...and that has served me well. 

Time for us to get on with our day here......

I keep thinking about Happy and the earthquakes around her.....Hoping that she and her family are ok.....I'm looking forward to her next post..........

 

Donkey on 07/06/2019:
I am usually watching or reading or doing something else (i.e. games on my phone, texting) while I ride my bike in the morning. Walking outdoors has enough distraction for me to enjoy, but usually anything indoors has to have something to go along with it.

BearCountryGG on 07/06/2019:
It sure does make the time go faster.....and that works better for me too.


Donkey on 07/06/2019:
I'm kind of liking your "relaxed" approach to eating lately. :) Not that I don't enjoy reading about your escapades with WW or looking at your food photos - I love those too. But this is kinda nice in its own way as well. Very Zen...

BearCountryGG on 07/06/2019:
It definately is a lot more relaxed........but I still need to work on things a while longer........I am just kind of a zen type person anyway....In my younger days...i did meditate, do yoga, I was a huge self help book reader....LOL...still have some of them and still read them....I'm very laid back.......when things happen I tend to not get riled...and instead get quiet and contemplative......definately not a type A personality. I like calm and collected....and come by that naturally....but Probably on monday...i will start getting more serious again....( I do burn out on that fast though...)...LOL

Breakfast outside is so nice! I could totally do this on my terrace, but i fear the pigeons...only if i had someone with me would i use the terrace..but really, i should fix this situation. you have just stirred some thoughts in my mind!

loving your ideas for the exercise room, especially hooks on the wall to get things off the floor! great idea to just hang those bands. that's actually what they did at a PT place i went to - maybe that's where you got the idea from all of D's PT sessions!?

it's always nice to organize. Like you, it does make me satisfied and happy!
