Weight: 157.6

I can't deal with being a fanatic about calories right now. I’m a total wreck thinking about coming up to 1 year since I lost my son.

But I will continue to work out and try not to go overboard because I won’t feel any better by gaining a ton. I’ll get on the scale every day though because I won’t be happy if I regain what I’ve lost. I broke down and ordered a box of 24 packs of popcorn.

Menu plans:

B: porridge with blueberries and raspberries, tea w/soy milk x 2

S: coffee with coconut milk

L:  I’ve been craving potatoes with butter for a long time, so had boiled baby potatoes with butter and 2 fried eggs. Was very satisfying.

D:  Panang curry

Beer?

Drinks: diet tonic, sugar free diluting fruit drink, water, tea & coffee, diet pepsi, diet lemonade

Workout: 

Full upper and lower body muscle workout 

S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-S

Progress as of today: 13.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

horn_of_plenty on 03/08/2021:
Sending you virtual hugs on the loss of your son and cannot believe it's been a year. you stay strong, stay active...that should help!

do some extra lower body reps for me...i skipped a session recently!

grannyannie on 03/08/2021:
I can't believe it's been nearly a year either.

Already did my workout, sorry. I normally do it between 10 and 11:30am. Next time!


Jacky82020 on 03/08/2021:
My deepest condolences over the loss of your precious boy.

Did you see the article yesterday in either the NYT or WaPo re 41 yr old man who died early last March? The family thinks it was covid, but listed cause of death is heart disease. He was thin, healthy & active up to the end, very unusual case. He had some prayer meeting at his house the evening he passed & said he wasn’t feeling all that great. No one heard from him for a few days, so they checked & he was gone. Very sad story.

grannyannie on 03/08/2021:
Thanks. Didn't read that. There have been yougn, fit, healthy people who died of Covid.


bearcountrygg on 03/08/2021:
I'm sure it is a sad time...take care of you....and find peace where you can.

grannyannie on 03/08/2021:
Thanks.


Maria7 on 03/08/2021:
So sorry, Annie. Sending a hug to you.

Had some beer and wine again yesterday. Good thing there weren’t any snacks in the house. I started looking online at some dresses/skirts/tops online to wear on our Michigan trip in August (I hope!). Thought it might help motivate me. I would be thrilled to get on the scale and have it start with 14!  And if I get to take my granddaughters to a water park I intend to wear one of the bikinis I wear in Thailand!

I’m feeling very deprived on the days I stick to 1100-1200 calories. I need to increase calories on at least a few days each week. Not a lot - just 1300-1400. 

B: porridge with raspberries and blueberries, tea w/soy milk x 2

S: coffee with coconut milk (a splash of coconut ‘drink’ is about 3 calories)

L:  6 veg salad, hummus, cheddar, 1 egg, apple

D: Panang curry

Drinks: diet tonic, sugar free diluting fruit drink, water, tea & coffee, diet pepsi, diet lemonade

Total:  about 1200

Workout:

Spin bike: 40 mins - running, sitting, jumps, hill climbing (been a while since I did 40 minutes and it felt great!)

S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-S

Woke up before 6 as usual and we could easily see across the water. We always have a long dawn and twilight here (called gloaming here). Sunrise today isn’t until 6:53. In June it will be at 4:30 and it will be light about 3:30. The dark drapes in the bedroom will be shut at night then, or else sun in our eyes at 4:30!

Progress as of today: 13.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

Donkey on 03/07/2021:
It's a delicate decision to determine the extent of calorie control. I would be interested to hear if this slightly higher range works better for you.

I remember when we visited Edinburg in July (many years ago). It seemed to me that it never really got dark at night. It was so beautiful! We went for a short walk at around 10p and there was still a little light on the horizon. Sort of like late dusk for us here.

grannyannie on 03/07/2021:
Years ago it worked well when I did low cal, high cal, low cal, etc.

It's never gets pitch black in summer. Edinburgh is to our east closer to the east coast. Hoping to do a couple of nights there, maybe in May.


Maria7 on 03/07/2021:
OH!!!! What a BEAUTIFUL SUNRISE!!!! Thanks for photo!!!

grannyannie on 03/07/2021:
I have to keep an eyes out earlier and earlier to look for a nice sunrise. I love when the sky gets all pink.


Maria7 on 03/07/2021:
I love the yellow!


horn_of_plenty on 03/08/2021:
did you watch the megan markle interview...she's well spoken! :) (i think she's smarter than harry, actually!)

grannyannie on 03/08/2021:
It was only on the US but I could have gotten it through VPN although it was too late for us.

It's on network channel ITV at 9pm here tonight at 9, but that's when we go to bed. I've seen MANY clips of it and I'm horrified by what she said about one or more of the family being concerned about how dark her baby would be! FFS!

I'm sure it will be shown online somewhere - everything shows up on Youtube.

Housework! So far I’ve dusted and hoovered the living/dining room, swept and washed the kitchen and laundry room floors. Tossed a load of towels into the washer. Don’t feel like cleaning the bathrooms, but might dust and hoover our bedroom. 

All afternoon yesterday I wanted a snack. Resisted and kept telling myself ‘don’t do it’. So I was good, until 7:30….hubby went into the den to watch rugby as he has to watch certain games on that tv. If he had been able to watch in the living room I would have worked on my jigsaw puzzle. However, I opened a bottle of red wine and rewatched two episodes of Outlander. And had another quinoa bar, and a chunk of cheddar. It was also a very difficult day because it was the 11 month anniversary for my son.

B: porridge with strawberries, tea w/soy milk x 2

S: coffee with coconut milk, quinoa bar

L:  6 veg salad, hummus, apple

D:  Panang curry

Drinks: diet tonic, sugar free diluting fruit drink, water, tea & coffee, diet pepsi, diet lemonade

Total: under 1200

Just saw this on FB. Looks familiar. Maybe someone posted it here before?

 

Progress as of today: 13.4 lbs lost so far, only 8.6 lbs to go!

Donkey on 03/06/2021:
Ha ha ha! I haven't seen THIS diet, but I've seen a similar one. I think there is a real life "diet" plan from the early 1970's that basically has you eating an egg and 1/2 grapefruit in the morning. Steak and half a bottle of dry white wine at lunch, and then another steak the rest of the bottle of wine for dinner. LOL...

I too find that I become vulnerable to wayward eating in those "alone" times. (((hugs)))

grannyannie on 03/06/2021:
Thanks for hugs.

I remember reading in the early 80's the best breakfast was a big piece of steak. Uh huh.


Maria7 on 03/06/2021:
So sorry about your 11 month anniversary. I know you miss him. Prayers. As for the stress diet, they started out good with breakfast and lunch, nothing wrong with that but then went downhill FAST, eating everything edible in sight, it looks like. Have any of us ever done similar? Smile.

grannyannie on 03/06/2021:
I am dreading the 1 year anniversary.

I like the stress diet! Too bad it would make me really fat!


Maria7 on 03/06/2021:

Weight: 157.6

Finally got on the scale for the first time since my 3 days birthday pig-out. 8 days ago on the day before my birthday I weighed 156.6 and today I am 157.6. So it could be worse, especially for the amount of junk I ate and alcohol I drank.

7:30am shopping for berries, mushrooms, bananas and the coconut drink they didn’t have yesterday. 

My sister contacted her club yesterday to confirm our luncheon booking with a deposit (which can be refunded if cancelled) for August.  A few people have been added to the list and I’m up to 35. My brother in RI said he’d come.  

Heard on BBC Scotland radio on the way home from shopping that in the next few weeks there will be announcements about whether we will be allowed to travel internationally this summer. We might need to ask for special permission to travel. Sigh.

B: porridge with strawberries, tea w/soy milk x 2

S: coffee with coconut milk, quinoa/peanut/dk chocolate bar (bought 2 boxes of 3 and hubby will eat some)

L:  6 veg salad, chicken, cheddar

D:  Husband cooking giant pot of panang curry today

Drinks: diet tonic, sugar free diluting fruit drink, water, tea & coffee, diet pepsi, diet lemonade

Total:  just over 1200

Workout:

15 minutes spin bike

Full upper and lower body muscle workout

Donkey on 03/05/2021:
Not bad for a 3-day fete!

It's nice to hear about your family reunion coming together! I am keeping an eye on international travel restrictions too, as I know my Boss wants to return to Europe soon, with a tour of southern Italy with his daughter and something up further north with a law school buddy (Switzerland or Germany, probably).

Fingers crossed!

grannyannie on 03/05/2021:
My nephew and his wife had planned on a trip to Italy in June but cancelled.

I really, really need this memorial and to be with family. And burial. Maybe then I can start to cope with this.


horn_of_plenty on 03/05/2021:
even if you need special permission to travel, it may be easy for you to get bc you are at least retired and may be able to attend to that kind of procedure.

grannyannie on 03/05/2021:
I've heard that some people wanted to go to another country in Europe for a funeral for family and were told it wasn't 'essential travel'.

As long as people behave and don't mess it up when we finally get out of total lockdown in April then cases might be low enough by summer. We need to fly the end of July. Vaccine passports will be mandatory.

grannyannie on 03/05/2021:
And proof of a negative test in the last 3 days prior to flight.


Maria7 on 03/05/2021:
Wow, you did well for 3 days of celebration eating.


Maria7 on 03/05/2021:

10am shopping pickup. They had everything but the coconut milk and no substitutions. So I'll pick up the milk when I get the berries, etc tomorrow early. After pickup I walked down to our mechanics which is nearby and paid the bill for the new battery we got a couple of weeks ago.

I’ve booked a venue for covered patio memorial luncheon (table service) for August. Husband said I shouldn’t do it yet because we aren’t even allowed to book flights yet. But if I wait places will be all booked up. Anyway, the deposit will be returned (because I’m international) if for some reason we can’t do it. 

  • B: porridge with blueberries, tea w/soy milk x 2
  • S: coffee with coconut milk
  • L:  6 veg salad, chicken, cheddar, apple, 1 egg
  • D:  Tom Yum Gai Thai soup
  • Drinks: diet tonic, sugar free diluting fruit drink, water, tea & coffee, diet pepsi, diet lemonade

Sunrise is in a different spot again. Looks like the same place we see it rise in summer. 

Progress as of today: 14.4 lbs lost so far, only 7.6 lbs to go!

bearcountrygg on 03/04/2021:
Good idea to book the venue...especially if you can get a refund if needed. Hopefully it will all work out.

grannyannie on 03/04/2021:
The only reason they aren't doing nonrefundable is because I'm international. It's my sister's country club so she has to put down the deposit and pay for everything since she's the member. And I can reimburse her later. A country club would not be my first choice but I can't find anything else which will do what I want - outside for safety, covered in case of rain, table service so no unsafe buffet with people breathing all over the food. And I know this place does very nice food as she has taken us there before.


Donkey on 03/04/2021:
I agree with Bear and with you! Book it now. And while it's not exactly what you had in mind, I think you'll find that it may suit your requirements for the event quite well, for your guests.

I have a can of coconut milk (and a can of coconut cream) that I'm going to try to reduce (condense) - by cooking over a low heat for a while - to use in my coffee. It would be a very very cheap alternative to heavy whipping cream or the brand-name vegan options.

grannyannie on 03/04/2021:
I think I'll be happy with the venue and the service and the food. And we can have it for at least 3 hours. And I don't care that it's $$$$.

We have cans of coconut milk husband uses in some Thai dishes, but what they didn't have was the carton of coconut milk that I use in coffee and hubby uses in his porridge. I'll be able to pick some up when I go in tomorrow.

I love coffee with half and half but it's rare that I have it. I don't think they even sell it here. Had it at a cousin's house after dinner a few years ago and it was soooooo good.


Maria7 on 03/04/2021:
Pretty photo! Venue sounds very nice.

grannyannie on 03/04/2021:
Thanks!


Maria7 on 03/04/2021:
Hope they had everything your ordered for your groceries in stock.

grannyannie on 03/05/2021:
I always go the day after I do a pickup to get the things I want to pick myself - berries, bananas, mushrooms and also get anything they didn't have at pickup. This time it was only coconut milk, actually coconut drink.

Skipped the spin bike this morning and just did the muscle work. Got distracted by starting research on flights for this summer to Michigan. We’re thinking August is best bet. Outdoor luncheon memorial.

B: porridge and blueberries, tea w/soy milk x 2

S: coffee with coconut milk

Total:  under 1200

Workout: 

Full upper and lower muscle workout

For the routines where I use the 5kg (11lb) dumbbells I’m only doing 5 reps. I’ll work my way up to 7 then 10. I hurt myself when I went straight from 10 reps with 4 kg to 10 reps with 5kg.

horn_of_plenty on 03/03/2021:
great full upper body workout. great raw salad followed by cooked veggies too. nice amount of veggies in your days..inspirational.

i'll have a diet coke today along with you and your diet pepsi, cannot even wait to have that at lunch!!!!!!!

grannyannie on 03/03/2021:
Tons of veggies. Wish I didn't love junk food though.

I buy the raspberry diet pepsi.


Maria7 on 03/03/2021:
Sounds like a very good workout routine. Hope you have a nice day. We drink diet coke, too, along with coffee. I have learned to like drinking my coffee black with nothing added to it.

grannyannie on 03/03/2021:
I prefer diet pepsi to coke.

I only put a splash of coconut milk in my coffee.


Jacky82020 on 03/03/2021:
I have always found researching trips to be very exciting!

grannyannie on 03/03/2021:
I love researching trips! We had to cancel 4 trips we had booked in 2020!


Jacky82020 on 03/03/2021:
The research can be so engaging!

Geez, hope you didn’t lose any money on the cancellations. I have a very wealthy friend who lost $750 and he will undoubtedly whine about it the rest of his life. Trip to either Alaska or nearby. But at least he’s making plans to travel again now.

grannyannie on 03/04/2021:
We didn't lose anything at all on cancelling flights, hotels, trains, and a concert. Even the ones that were nonrefundable rates allowed cancellation because of Covid restrictions. We got money back from Delta for the trip to Michigan we were to go on last summer. We got vouchers for Emirates for the tickets to Australia. We hadn't yet booked flight to Thailand. Not allowed to go to Australia this year so will use the vouchers for Thailand.


bearcountrygg on 03/03/2021:
August will be nice and warm!

Got back on my bike for the first time since I crashed it in early August. Needed to pick up my antihistamines at the doctor’s office (about 4 ½ miles away), and also stopped by our friends’ house on the way back. Sat out on their deck for a short time and had a glass of wine.

That is wonderful that you are able to ride again. Glad you are much better. Hope you are having a good day.

grannyannie on 03/02/2021:
Thanks! I was a bit nervous, especially about getting too close to the curb (which caused my crash in August).


Jacky82020 on 03/02/2021:
Marvelous you’re back in the saddle. Well done, lass.

grannyannie on 03/02/2021:
Thanks! I knew I'd be nervous, so I'll just have to go out often.


Jacky82020 on 03/02/2021:
Ten miles is ambitious! I’d probably go around the block and call it a job.

grannyannie on 03/03/2021:
It's an ebike so pedal assisted battery. So most of our daytrip rides have been 40-50 miles with lots of hills.

If you go 'around the block' at my house it's 20 miles! And we've done it. With 20% gradient hills in some spots.


Horn_of_plenty on 03/02/2021:
love hearing that you are bike on your bike! it must be so enjoyable to do your errands by bike. how was the weather?

grannyannie on 03/03/2021:
It was chilly! About 50F and sunny but you create a breeze when your ride. Can't ride a bike with my long down coat, so wore 3 fleeces!


Donkey on 03/03/2021:
So glad to hear that you've stepped back into the bike! Keep doing that! The best way to overcome a fear is to face it. I had a similar struggle after a car accident. It's hard, but see, you've just proven to yourself that you can do it!

"Around the block" might as well be around the world, eh? That was kind of neat to read about your block.

grannyannie on 03/03/2021:
I was nervous, but I'd get less nervous with each trip.

Around our block - we are on a coastal road. Nobody lives behind us - it's a forest. We have to go along the coast, then up in the mountains, then main road, then our road. Almost exactly 20 miles.


horn_of_plenty on 03/03/2021:
LOL...great idea on the 3 fleeces!

Early this morning the fog was so thick you wouldn’t even know there was water in front of our house! Then it cleared, then it came back. Now it’s gone again. But it’s now sunny and about 50F. Maybe a walk?

When we went to our friends’ on my birthday we knew we needed to dress warmly. I wore my leggings (which I practically live in now) and put my REI nylon trousers over the top of them. I was very happy to be able to comfortably get on my size 12’s over them (US size) and not have to wear the size 14’s. 

B: porridge with strawberries, tea w/soy milk x 2

S: coffee with coconut milk

L:  6 veg salad, chicken, cheddar, 1 egg

D:  Massaman curry

S:  Pimms with diet lemonade and slices of lemon/orange

Drinks: diet tonic, sugar free diluting fruit drink, water, tea & coffee, diet pepsi, diet lemonade

Total:  under 1200

Workout: 

Spin bike: 15 mins - running, sitting, jumps, hill climbing

Full upper and lower body muscle workout (increasing to 5kg dumbbells last Weds was too much. Had a couple of sore spots. The problem with increasing to the next size dumbbell when you use kg is that you increase by 2.2 lb instead of just 1lb. So I did 5 reps instead of 10 with the 5kg (11lb) weights.

S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-S

In between big banks of fog I took this:

 

Progress as of today: 14.4 lbs lost so far, only 7.6 lbs to go!

Donkey on 03/01/2021:
It was a little foggy/misty by us yesterday morning. I'll take it with the warmer temperatures over freezing, snowing, blowing, etc. 50F sounds like a lovely temperature for an outdoor walk. Those temperatures are coming my way soon! (Not today, but perhaps by the end of the week or so...)

Way to go on the smaller size! At least you are not gaining. Keep on working it!

IDK, I think it's a rather good thing to increase by kg, rather than by pound. Yes, you'll have to decrease your reps, perhaps, but it will push you a little more to start stretching you out of your comfort zone. I'm kind of stuck in a 20-rep mentality, rather than 10-reps that are challenging. That's an example of the "stretching yourself" that I'm talking about.

grannyannie on 03/01/2021:
Increasing to a heavier dumbbells for shoulder routines is how I hurt my shoulder a few years ago. I ignored the bad crunch and kept going. Bad move.

I always do 3 sets of 10 reps.


bearcountrygg on 03/01/2021:
Love it when the smaller sizes fit!! Beautiful Pic!

grannyannie on 03/01/2021:
Me too! Especially with leggings underneath!

I spotted the mountain with just a bit of sun on it and the fog disappearing and grabbed my phone and out onto the porch.

grannyannie on 03/02/2021:
It wasn't long after I took this pic that fog rolled in again and everything was covered.


horn_of_plenty on 03/02/2021:
i also dislike the dumbell increments and always wondered why we have to increase so much and not just a pound. stupid.

only the dumbells where we can put the plates on ourselves give the option of lb increments. totally not a good thing with the unajustable dumbells though. that always bothered me too.

Back to healthy eating after my indulgences. 

I still have some of the birthday chocolates. Gobbled up the birthday chocolates with hubby's help. So I’ll work one a day into the calories (85). Husband is helping me eat them. I was given gifts by 2 sets of friends - one is Glayva, a lovely liqueur and the other is a bottle of gin.

I’m feeling confident we can get to Michigan in August. Might need a vaccine passport and we will need proof of a negative Covid test that is 3 days old or less. 

B: porridge with strawberries, tea w/soy milk x 2

S: coffee with coconut milk

L:  6 veg salad, chicken, cheddar, apple

D: Massaman curry (hubby forgot that I asked him to make panang - so he’ll do it next week)

S:  1 chocolate or Pimms and diet lemonade and orange or lemon slices (85 or 86 calories)

Drinks: diet tonic, sugar free diluting fruit drink, water, tea & coffee, diet pepsi, diet lemonade

Total:  under 1200

Donkey on 02/28/2021:
Back to reality, I suppose... I think that's a great plan to incorporate the remainder of goodies, in small or limited quantities, until they are gone. Now just don't tell yourself that you deserve another food birthday party and eat everything up in one sitting. You got this. You can do it. You are in control!

As someone who lacks bosoms, for the most part, I think you look lovely proportionate in your photo. I read your remark and looked at the photo and thought to myself that we're looking at 2 different pictures. It's a great picture!

No more goodies for a while. I can have Pimms with no guilt. The other two alcohol gifts I got will just have to sit in the storeroom for a while.

I hate having big boobs! Way back in the my early 40's when I got to 120 lbs they shrunk a lot and it was so comfy wearing a small bra.

I was 128-130 in this photo.

(Healthy eating, exercise)
Weight: 156.6

Had a great birthday! We did break the lockdown rules since it's only allowed for one person from one household to visit one person from another - outdoors. Our friends have what used to be a greenhouse, a heater, and the door open. So they BBQd sausages, burgers and chicken.  It has been sooooooooo long since we've gotten together with them. We arrived at 4pm and were shocked to find out it was nearly midnight when someone looked at their watch. Lots of beer and wine. 

Hungover and tired today. But it was worth it! 

No workouts. 

So far I've had a plain wrap and the last chocolate chip cookie. Husband is making panang curry so I hope I'm hungry by dinnertime.

Our crocuses and snowdrops from yesterday:

 

Progress as of today: 14.4 lbs lost so far, only 7.6 lbs to go!

Sounds like you had a fun birthday celebration....My belated Birthday wishes to you! Your flowers are beautiful....looking forward to the snow going around here...but it's still coming t=down too steadily for that. March will be welcome.

grannyannie on 02/27/2021:
Thanks, Bear. Had a lot of fun but paying for it today!

These flowers are usually here the end of Jan. I'm looking forward to all the spring flowers.

Sounds like a good time was had by all! Fabulous!

The posies are gorgeous. Stunning colors on those crocuses.

Had a great time!

I love the colour on the crocuses.

Oh you had a GOOD birthday!!!!

Wow, I cannot believe how Spring seems to have arrived in Scotland already - and so quickly! We still have a foot or 2 of snow on the ground. The roads and sidewalks are clear, and the snow is melting, but there's still quite a bit to melt until plants start coming up again. I did notice that I'm seeing grass - albeit brown and wilted from the winter. Soon enough, we'll catch up to you here in Illinois!

These flowers are normally blooming by the end of January in our area.

Hope your snow melts soon and you see flowers!
