Ugh. I knew when I woke with a bit of a sore throat yesterday morning that I might have caught a cold.  Yep. Woke up with sore throat and blocked nose today and not feeling energetic at all. Might try to do my muscle workout, but don’t know. Need to go grocery shopping since we’ve been gone.

S: coconut/almond milk cappuccino, quinoa cranberry bar

L: 6 veg salad w/chicken & cheddar

D: veggie curry tonic water

Horn_of_plenty on 08/27/2019:
i hope you feel better. excellent menu. do you ever change up the veggies in your salad?

welcome home! boy did that weekend come and go quickly!

grannyannie on 08/27/2019:
Salads are always some type of dark leaves, usually including spinach, carrot, cucumber, pepper, celery, tomato....so I always stick to that. Get plenty of veg in our curries for dinner so figure I'm good.


Donkey on 08/27/2019:
Ugh, I hope you clear up soon. I am so dreading getting sick. I've been hypervigilant about it lately.

grannyannie on 08/27/2019:
I can't remember the last time I had a cold. A couple of years at least. But I was visiting in a hospital and then in crowds of people all weekend, so I guess I wasn't careful enough although I'm fanatical about washing my hands.


BearCountryGG on 08/27/2019:
Hope you feel better soon.....zinc tablets help around here.

grannyannie on 08/27/2019:
Thanks I've tried zinc and other things - no luck.


happy-1 on 08/27/2019:
Feel better!

Didn't do that great on our weekend - but could have been worse I guess.  We did a LOT of walking and much of it was uphill.

Too much alcohol and some snacking. So I'll just get back to counting and not beat myself up.  Next cheat day is Sept 7th when we have guests for dinner. 

Just came home so having lunch here.  This is a gym day and I don't want to mess up my schedule again, so I'll do my muscle workout at home tomorrow, then back to the gym on Weds as normal.

Menu:

  • B: restaurant - Small Scottish breakfast: 1 egg, 1 potato scone, beans, 1 sausage, 1 bacon (415 cals), tea w/milk
  • S:  cappuccino
  • L:  6 veg salad w/cheddar
  • D: veggie curry, tonic
  • S:  dry roasted peanuts

Total:  1182 cals - Carbs: don't know as I don't know the breakfast carbs 

Hope everybody had a great weekend!  

Progress as of today: 5.4 lbs lost so far, only 16.6 lbs to go!

BearCountryGG on 08/26/2019:
Good plan to get back to the watching things...life is for living...you didn't do anything but live...now on days where you can...you watch it even more....good job!!! Dieting shouldn't be our whole life...just a part of it.

grannyannie on 08/26/2019:
Very true!


Donkey on 08/26/2019:
I couldn't say it better than Bear! I agree 100%. And no sense in beating yourself up as to what was eaten or drunk - better to savor the memory of a wonderful time!

grannyannie on 08/26/2019:
It was worth it - sitting outdoors drinking a cold beer after lots of walking in the sunshine...ahhh. Not something we can do that often here.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/26/2019:
sept 7 is a big day for me also! i'm walking in a labor day parade followed by a nice meal :)

also, glad to hear you were active. that's so healthy. lately, i'm quite a couch potato. many hours on the couch on the weekend.

i like to keep my schedule for the gym also. just took a minor break this weekend bc i felt it would help give me some energy and change of pace for the weekend, which it did.

grannyannie on 08/26/2019:
Being active is something I don't usually neglect. I feel horrible when I'm lazy!


happy-1 on 08/26/2019:
Ooooh Scottish breakfast... Yum

grannyannie on 08/26/2019:
I would have preferred the 'large' Scottish breakfast, but had to consider calories! Nearly 2,000 just for breakfast would have been a bit too much!

More alcohol than I planned yesterday. It was so nice to sit outdoors mid afternoon with a cold beer. 

Hard to post on my phone as I didn't bring my laptop. 

Breakfast was supposed to be 550 cal eggs benedict but restaurant out of hollandaise. So its vegetarian with egg, quorn sausage, beans, hash browns and toast. 915 cals!

Lunch will be at the gardens in Edinburgh.

Had egg salad sandwich, shared packeyvof doritos and cupcake with hubby.

2 beers si far.

Dinner?

Have a wonderful time in the city! I personally think dinner sounds good! (veggie burger and beer - how festive!)

Donkey on 08/23/2019:
Very wise planning! Not easy to do, either, but stick with it.

grannyannie on 08/23/2019:
It's challenging for sure!


Horn_of_plenty on 08/23/2019:
i agree with Donkey! not easy to keep low but you are doing it.

also your salad with liver and cheddar sounds good!

grannyannie on 08/23/2019:
The salad is very filling and healthy. I've got no bread in the house or freezer at all, so can't be tempted to have a sandwich.


BearCountryGG on 08/23/2019:
Youn are keeping the calories down really well!!!

grannyannie on 08/24/2019:
Thanks. This weekend is a test.


happy-1 on 08/23/2019:
I should be this good on the calories and cardio! Well done!

grannyannie on 08/24/2019:
I've done this so many times I know what works for me. Too bad I can't maintain it after I reach goal! But I'll keep trying.

Horn_of_plenty on 08/22/2019:
If you end up at the botanical gardens, i'd love to see a photo down the road when you have time to post one! :)

always nice to go to the movie theater...i go prob most 1-2x per year. especially good when the movie was worth seeing on the big screen - i have seen quite a few blows.

nice job on your menu and exercises. i also do BOTH lunges and squats. do you do your lunges in place? or are they walking lunges? of course, mine are in plcae - i step forward to a lunge and then back and repeat for the desired reps. do you step back also, or is it a walking lunge covering some distance at the gym?

grannyannie on 08/22/2019:
I'll post some photos when I get back. :)

I do the muscle work at home, not the gym. I'm not great at doing lunges on alternating feet or walking, so I do a lunge then go down 5 times, and then the other leg. Easier to balance as well. For squats I do 10 at a time. And with both I hold dumbbells.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/22/2019:
i do the same with my lunges, back and forth in place.

for my squats i also use a weighted bar so i'm going down with extra weight.

grannyannie on 08/22/2019:
Do you use ankle weights? I really like those for thighs and butt.


Donkey on 08/22/2019:
I've been wanting to see a movie at the theater lately. It's hard to find something that my husband and I would like to see together. We have different tastes.

grannyannie on 08/22/2019:
I looked through all the films showing this weekend and not one looks watchable. Haven't been since last autumn I think. We usually agree on movies.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/22/2019:
i just looked at the movies - poor selection :(

also, no on the ankle weights - at least not yet.

grannyannie on 08/22/2019:
Nope, no good ones.

Ankle weights are great! Lots of different exercises you can do with them.


legcramps on 08/22/2019:
Love lunges and squats! One of the best exercises out there! During a group session, we did walk-through lunges. You do a reverse lunge (stepping backwards) and then swing your leg up and forward into a forward lunge, and repeat. I think we did it 10 times before switching to the other leg. It was a burner for sure!

grannyannie on 08/22/2019:
Yea, they are intense!


happy-1 on 08/22/2019:
love the botanical gardens

grannyannie on 08/22/2019:
We have a very good about 5 miles from our house, and the one in Edinburgh is the 'parent' of that one. Haven't been for ages! Been to Edinburgh twice this summer but it was with family and we did castle or museums.

(Low cal - moderate carbs - cardio and muscle work)
Weight: 162.4

Didn’t manage my muscle workout yesterday afternoon after doing a extra gym day. I’m really a morning exerciser. So this week will be off schedule - just Thursday for muscle workout because Saturday we’ll be away.

Got on the scale this morning even though I'm trying to stick to Saturdays only. Lost 1.2 lbs since Saturday. 

Menu:

  • B: soy yogurt & blueberries, tea w/soy milk
  • S: coconut/almond milk cappuccino, cashew and date bar
  • L: 6 veg salad w/chicken & cheddar & mixed seeds, clementine
  • D: curry with Quorn and mixed veggies, tonic water
  • S: dry roasted peanuts

Total cals: 1346 Carbs: 56.5g

 

 

Gym: (less energetic doing 3 days in a row - so MWF cardio and T Th Sat muscle work is ideal)

treadmill - (intervals uphill and speed) - 10 mins

elliptical - 10 mins

rowing machine - 10 mins

recumbent bike -  15 mins

Leg press (20kg) - 3 sets of 10

 

 

Progress as of today: 4.6 lbs lost so far, only 17.4 lbs to go!

Horn_of_plenty on 08/21/2019:
i also find every other day workouts for the same muscle group are the best way to go ;)

nice loss!

grannyannie on 08/21/2019:
This is what I usually did before all the visitors descended on us this summer. And it works out well. I've never done small muscle work 2 days in a row, but cardio yes.


Donkey on 08/21/2019:
I like your workout schedule. With myself, I really do have to exercise (cardio) in the morning to warm-up and stretch out my back. If I don't, then I'm really prone to back pain later in the day... and like you said, it's harder to get to it in the afternoon or evening. Just not the same.

grannyannie on 08/21/2019:
Yea, my energy for working out is mornings. I like bike rides in the afternoon, but those rides are actually a pleasure ride.


BearCountryGG on 08/21/2019:
My joints don't loosen up until a little later in the day.....so I ride the exercycle then...no walking here because, BEARS.

grannyannie on 08/21/2019:
I've lived where there were bears before (UP Michigan), but no bears here. I struggle walking up the stairs to get into the gym but once I'm on my first machine - treadmill - I'm ready to go!


BearCountryGG on 08/21/2019:
I'm in the upper part of the lower penninsula.......you probably had more than we have....

grannyannie on 08/22/2019:
I lived in St Ignace in the mid 70's. I lived across the street from some woods and a bear(s) got into my rubbish one time and made a huge mess.

I visit Michigan ever summer to see my family.

Good Job Annie....your day just all looks so healthy!!!!

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
Thanks! Got to do it!


Horn_of_plenty on 08/20/2019:
nice! a new bike for hubby. I don't have funds i want to spend on a bike right now since i don't use it all year or many days a week, but it's on my "wish list."

what got you into those bars you eat for a snack in the morning? do you buy them? what brand? you have sparked my interest!

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
I always liked a snack at the gym after my workout, so I buy a black coffee or tea and have one. And at home I have one midmorning with my cappuccino. I don't know if they have the same brands over there but here they aren't with the cereal bars (which are pretty much the same as candy bars). They are actually in the gluten free section: One is Perkier - Goji and cranberry. The other is Squirrel Sisters - has about 4 types. I will try to upload photos of the boxes.

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
Oh, and his bike. We ride electric bikes (you still have to pedal) and they get you up all the hills here. He's put so many miles on his it's starting to fall apart. So he's bought a new one. Mine is still fine.


BearCountryGG on 08/20/2019:
Oh...that sounds like my kind of bike.......!!! Never seen those bars here.

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
Check the gluten free section. Might be there - or else they are just UK companies.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/20/2019:
those bars look cool. i see the squirrel sister bars are tiny and tasty and i see the other ones are a good size and not too high in cals. tasty stuff.

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
Squirrel Sisters is 82 calories per small car - so one pack is 164. They are filling but not the best tasting. The Perkier cranberry is my new favourite - one bar and is 129 calories. Much nicer taste but not as filling.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/20/2019:
and yeah, i don't think we have them here.

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
Might find something similar.

sorry your family get together will not happen! i hope you guys can reschedule for another time.!!

Also, it's still nice you are doing the getaway. Can you still stop by to say hello to them? Or are they very busy..

Nice to see you went to the gym rather than skipped out. As a regular exerciser, i also notice i have up days and down days and some workouts (although the same drills) feel harder than others.

ah yes, i remember you and tonic water :) i love the taste of it too.

grannyannie on 08/19/2019:
I hope it's rescheduled! The party was mostly for all of husband's cousins (we only see each other at funerals!). Not possible to just drop in - very inconvenient as we are taking a train - it's just one of the cousin's houses. It's a serious leak in the kitchen and has caused a lot of damage - so she will be busy!

Definitely no skipping any workouts!


Horn_Of_Plenty on 08/19/2019:
that sounds like a major inconvenience to them :( so sorry!

grannyannie on 08/19/2019:
Yea, bad timing.


BearCountryGG on 08/19/2019:
Sorry to hear of the cancellation but nice that you still were able to take the trip and have some time away.

grannyannie on 08/19/2019:
Thanks. But we always seem to be away. I look forward to being home. :) Haven't figured out what we'll do in the city since we've hit all the museums when my family visited.


Donkey on 08/19/2019:
That's too bad -- on the other hand, now you won't have to worry so much about food choices and such. I guess there's a small silver lining to it.

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
Yea, I was stressing about the party and behaving myself.


happy-1 on 08/19/2019:
Go to the hotel anyway. Get thai takeout and a bottle of massage oil. Life is short.

grannyannie on 08/20/2019:
We have no choice but go to hotel - it can't be cancelled. But we'll go to our usual restaurant.

Like the idea of massage oil though. ;)

Worried about behaving myself next weekend when we go to a party.  My past attitude has always been 'I deserve some indulgence after being so good'.  Then I go overboard.  We'll be spending 2 nights which means eating out as well. I have photos of me on my phone showing how my size 8 trousers don't even come close to shutting and also a profile showing my belly.  Maybe I could look at those occasionally as a reminder and motivation?

BearCountryGG on 08/18/2019:
You know Annie.....I am basically a closet eater and I find parties/get togethers etc easier because I know someone is possibly watching......now restaurants...that is different...I don't know those strangers and I then belong to the clean plate club. The life of a foodie is so hard. Learning moderation is going to take time and you could look at the party as your maiden voyage into party moderation......enjoy small servings and be proud that you can do that.

grannyannie on 08/18/2019:
I'm getting better at restricting sweets, but it's the alcohol does does me in. I love beer and beer is high cal and high carb. At gatherings someone is always offering to get me another one. I might just have to stick to wine which I like but not nearly as much as beer. And beer goes so well with salty snacks (another weakness). Wine goes with nothing - except maybe cheese.


Donkey on 08/18/2019:
Wow, that's tough. I'm not sure I have any solutions, although looking at your pictures on your cell phone from time to time, might be enough to provide you with inspiration.

I often think I should drink - and drink more. I'd probably be a happier person. But I do take a personal pride in my sobriety. I'm an alcoholic, but I do eat more when I'm drinking. And I found it a slippery slope if I have a drink after dinner. One glass soon becomes 2...

I might feel differently if I lived in Europe. When my husband and I went to the UK, oh my the ales were delicious - and I'm not a beer drinker! I don't recall if I ever dove into the wines there.... Truth be told, I love it all - except stouts. Too heavy for my tummy.

grannyannie on 08/18/2019:
I didn't really drink much beer until about 10 years ago and since then I've discovered many different types of beers/ales I like - even porters and Guinness. Drinking more than a couple of beers lessens my willpower and I do eat more. Same with wine.

I haven't had any alcohol since starting my diet a week ago, which is what I normally do. But I allow for social occasions - and then get back to healthy eating and no alcohol afterwards. As long as it's not too often, it's usually fine.


Horn_of_plenty on 08/18/2019:
do you cook the curries? i forgot what it was about you and curry other than you list it often...

also, parties are very hard. the way i have typically gotten thru them is with lots of plates of raw veggies, that i typically bring. and diet / low cal drinks.

grannyannie on 08/18/2019:
I don't cook, my husband does. I just list everything he makes as a curry but they vary in ingredients. Easy one pot dishes always with veggies and a protein (Quorn, tofu, beans). He's been experimenting with Thai dishes as well and they are so yummy!

Party is with hubby's family and I'm not overly worried about the food - just the beer and wine of which there will be lots! We are to bring a cold dish, but we have to travel by ferry and train so it has to be easy. Thinking a variety box of crackers and different cheeses. Also a bottle of wine. Plus we will be staying in a hotel for 2 nights which means eating out. I'll try to be tough and avoid the beers/ales I love and have gin and diet tonic.

Rest day for us over here, too, Annie...or should I say...rest afternoon...cause this morning we were at the nursing home, taking care of Mama. Hoping you have a good evening.

I didn't get a lot of rest as I did housework, but didn't do any regular workouts. Hope your mama is doing well. It's looking like a lovely evening as it finally stopped raining and the sun came out.

We have a Nespresso machine and I froth the milk myself. Yum.
