(Healthy food-fitness-getting back to ideal weight)
Weight: 140.2

Today I am grateful for my family.

I have booked a house for a week in Ireland in mid-September for hubby & I and my sister.  Faces a gorgeous Atlantic Beach. 

House is in a mess with the heating being installed. But it will be so nice when it's done. A warmer house.

Workout:

  • 30 mins spin bike class (that seems to last for hours!)

Menu:

  • B:   homemade whole grain seeded toast w/lite marg and jam (couldn't have my porridge because the workmen used up all the milk in their tea yesterday!), tea 
  • L:  pbj sandwich in the car, then grocery shopping
  • S:  clementine
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad
  • S:  banana, 2 oatcakes w/low fat cheddar
  • Teas and water

TOTAL:  under 1600 (had to estimate the toast as I didn't weigh it)

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 03/14/2013:
Sounds lovely, Annie! Good work with exercise and foods, I see you are back on track.


OhioRaven on 03/14/2013:
Sorry to hear you didn't get your porridge.


Puddles on 03/14/2013:
That will be a nice holiday for you. I would love to go to Ireland. My grand mother is from Ireland. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 03/14/2013:
I love Ireland. Haven't been since 2006. Quite similar to Scotland with enough differences to make it worth a visit. (I have O'Brien ancestry and my hubby's grandad moved to Scotland from Ireland.)


supercheese on 03/14/2013:
hoping its not too chilly!!

grannyannie on 03/14/2013:
Heat won't go off until tomorrow. Taking longer than expected so no hot water/heat/washer dryer until late Monday!!

Today I am grateful for my stamina!

Sooo.....I've been a bit of a piggy for a few days, but at the gym today I was thinking about how it wasn't worth it. The food/drink are good at the time, but ONLY at the time I am consuming it. I'm trying to keep in mind at all times how much better I felt at 130lbs or less.

Next high cal day will be when we have our friends for dinner a week from Saturday.

They are putting in our new heating system today. Heat won't be turned off until tomorrow and will also be off on Friday. We'll use electric heaters in the mean-time and cold water, but when they are done the house will be warmer and our heating bills will be slashed. It will even be cheaper to pay for the heat AND and the loan than it is costing us now.  The loan is interest-free through the government as they are pushing for more eco-friendly and cheaper energy.

Workout at gym:

  • 35 mins spin bike - absolutely killed this machine today!!! 
  • 15 mins elliptical
  • 10 mins rowing machine
  • 3 sets of 12 on 6 resistance machines
  • cables/pulley for triceps - 3 sets of 12

Workout at home:

  • 7 min video routine for triceps/arms
  • dumbbells - 3 sets of 12 - 7 routines
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • squats
  • lunges w/dumbbells
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • planks (full and alternating)
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • thigh master  
  • abs-4 routines
  • bridge (for glutes)

Menu: and I WILL stick to my calories today! Need to get hubby to hide the oatcakes!

  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  chicken breast sandwich on whole grain w/extra light mayo
  • S: clem
  • D:  bean/veg stew on tagliatelle, salad w/walnuts
  • S:  2 oatcakes & low fat cheddar
  • Teas & lots of water

TOTAL:  1480

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 03/13/2013:
Good Attitude, Annie !


biscottibody59 on 03/13/2013:
Have a great day!


Umpqua on 03/13/2013:
You're so right about the instant gratification. And it's worth it on occasion , as long as it's not happening all the time. Have a good one!


supercheese on 03/13/2013:
WOrkout machine!!! Thats an awesome loan. Snuggle up with the hubby when it gets cold!!

grannyannie on 03/13/2013:
LOL! Hard to snuggle if I'm doing dishes or warming up the leftovers though. :)


Puddles on 03/13/2013:
I know what you are talking about. My cheats are soo not worth it but I find it makes me more determine to do better. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 03/13/2013:
Yup, cheating is only good during the short time you are enjoying them. Then you pay dearly for it later.


lolla on 03/13/2013:
Your workouts are amazing and this is a bumpy road to a better body so hang in there and keep trying with every new day there is a new opportunity to do better!!!

grannyannie on 03/13/2013:
Yep, I'll just keep looking at the bar graph for Oct that says I averaged 128. Felt good and will feel good again.


lolla on 03/13/2013:
Your workouts are amazing and this is a bumpy road to a better body so hang in there and keep trying with every new day there is a new opportunity to do better!!!


hollybelle on 03/13/2013:
Great workout! Your post make me think of the saying: A moment on the lips - forever on the hips! LOL! We put in a new heating and cooling system last year. It has helped. Good luck with that. Keep on your path to health. It's so easy to get off. I think my low energy is due to recent 15 lb gain! I am gonna conquer it, though!


V on 03/13/2013:
That is super cool that the gov offers interest free loans for eco friendly home improvements! Stay to your meal plan today Annie, you can do it!

grannyannie on 03/14/2013:
Thanks! Yes, I did do it!


getmebackto150 on 03/13/2013:
I TOTALLY agree with you about splurging on food and drink... It is ONLY enjoyable at the exact time... The REST of the time, I'm annoyed that I indulged... Great attitude!!! You can do this and get back to goal!!!

grannyannie on 03/14/2013:
Thanks!

Today I am grateful for a world of diversity to explore!

Not a workout day. Been doing a bit of extra snacking last few days.   I guess I was feeling deprived. Been doing all the laundry today in preparation for my utility room being out of commission the next 3 days. Getting new heating system. So the house will be cold except for electric heaters. And no hot water! 

Between loads of laundry and other chores, I've been doing research on a cottage for a week in Ireland with my sister and hubby in September, and a hotel in Thailand in January for niece's wedding. NOT going to spend 2 weeks or more at the wedding hotel as the cheapest room is £155/night (about $200!). 

Menu:

  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  banana
  • L:  grilled cheese w/low fat cheddar and whole grain bread
  • S:  skinny cappuccino, several oatcakes, 1/2 pint of hubby's new batch of home brew
  • D:  tagliatellie with bean and veg curry, salad
  • S:  clementine, dried apricots
  • Teas & water

Probably under 1800 cals

Tomorrow:  back on track!!!!!!

Progress as of today: 26.8 lbs lost so far, only 12.2 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 03/12/2013:
You've been a bad girl. I've been bad too.


biscottibody59 on 03/12/2013:
Good going on feeling 41!

I think I felt late-20ish at 41, but now in mid-50s I definitely feel my age. It's a function of a few things, almost all of which I have control over. Glad you brought it up though--one more thing to push me forward!

Hope the heating re-do isn't too much of a pain!


Umpqua on 03/12/2013:
Wow, future travels for you, how exciting! Good luck going with the heat/hot water for a few days, that's roughing it :)

grannyannie on 03/12/2013:
Hope we aren't w/o hot water and heat for all 3 days!

Yea, this is a very busy travel year. Next year as well.


supercheese on 03/12/2013:
Ireland sounds so nice!! Snacking is okay....maybe means weightloss soon? Maybe? lol AW that sounds like no fun about the loss of heat. Bundle up!


V on 03/12/2013:
Hope you found some reasonable rates. RYC I don't mind the Spring Breakers, they are alot more tamer and can handle their booze more than ANY full fledged adults, beleive it or not the mid 40's - 60's are the ones who get arrested on the beach, sad but true.LOL

grannyannie on 03/13/2013:
Actually, I do believe you when you say the 40-60's group are worse!!

I was NOT good yesterday, but I'm not stressing about it. I had a feeling I wouldn't stick to my planned calories yesterday. My calories have been quite low for the amount of exercise and I guess I was due for an increase.  Had wine, oatcakes and cheese, oatcakes and cheese, wine, etc......

OhioRaven on 03/11/2013:
You're as young as you feel, Annie. It's NOT just a saying.

grannyannie on 03/11/2013:
No, it isn't. And I do feel physically 20 years younger than I am. :) Although I really don't know what 61 is 'supposed' to feel like!


Puddles on 03/11/2013:
Are you taking french classes. I am french - you can write to me in french if you want. Have a great day.

grannyannie on 03/11/2013:
Merci! No, I am using Rosetta Stone, an online site, and also using a grammar book. I'm very much a beginner.


Umpqua on 03/11/2013:
I'm going on 41 and you are seriously kicking my booty in the exercise department! Don't worry though, I'll be back and going on 21 again soon ;) Good for you for keeping up with your French, what a great way to practice!

grannyannie on 03/11/2013:
Yeah, for going on 21 soon! :)


supercheese on 03/11/2013:
OOO french. I really wanna learn french. Age is just a number! My grandma is 102 and STILL walks 5 miles a day. She looks like shes 75 no joke LOL

grannyannie on 03/11/2013:
I've met many women who are in the 90's but actually like 70! I want to be like that!


V on 03/11/2013:
Awesome feeling isn't it? Proof that you can be at your healthiest at any age!! Go Annie :) Hope that you have a stellar day young lady!


getmebackto150 on 03/11/2013:
Your menu and workout look great!!! So exciting to feel good at any age:)


lolla on 03/11/2013:
Hey, great attitude! Bonjour jeune fille!. I did learn french one day a long long time ago and it is so beautiful!!!

grannyannie on 03/11/2013:
Merci! It's a very sexy language.


V on 03/11/2013:
RYC you guys are so lucky, get ready though, losing the extra hour of sleep, not fun..LOL

Weight: 140.8

Today I am grateful for my two granddaughters and my two step-grandsons. 
 
I have finished the last bottle of concentrated juice w/artificial sugar that I've been drinking with lunch and dinner. Very low cal and delicious, but I'm off artificial sugar and this was the last food or drink that contained any. I might try regular juice and just dilute it to keep the calories down. 

Workout at home:
  • 7 min video routine for triceps/arms
  • dumbbells - 3 sets of 12 - 7 routines
  • side dips with dumbbell
  • squats
  • lunges w/dumbbells
  • thighs/glutes with ankle weights
  • planks (full and alternating)
  • push ups
  • triceps dips
  • thigh master  
  • abs-4 routines
  • bridge (for glutes)
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  salad w/smoked salmon/chicken breast/low fat cheddar/pumpkin seeds/walnuts (Omega 3 & 6)
  • S:  plain nonfat yogurt w/fresh raspberries
  • D:  omelette with 2 veggie sausages, toast (we only have one serving of leftover tofu curry so I'm heating that up for hubby and having something else.  Two rugby matches hubby is watching today so will be unable to cook! )
  • S:  grapes, 2 oatcakes w/low fat cheddar
  • Teas and water
TOTAL:  1502
 

Progress as of today: 26.2 lbs lost so far, only 12.8 lbs to go!

OhioRaven on 03/09/2013:
Mornin' Annie. That's a great idea about diluting to your own taste. Who is the Hubby's favorite team ?

grannyannie on 03/09/2013:
Scotland, of course! :)


V on 03/09/2013:
LOL I guess he will be glued to the tv all day, how about you? Are you a fan of Rugby as well or will you do a little reading? Hope that you have a fantastic weekend Annie <3

grannyannie on 03/09/2013:
Not a rugby fan but I do like football (soccer).


biscottibody59 on 03/09/2013:
Have a great day!


OhioRaven on 03/09/2013:
The Lions or the Highlanders ? I don't know the difference, but I'll look for them on Sport Center.

grannyannie on 03/09/2013:
It was 6 Nations Rugby. It was Scotland vs Wales. Scotland lost :(

grannyannie on 03/09/2013:
So Scotland is out of the running. He's now watching France vs Ireland and he's rooting for Ireland.

Weight: 140.8

Today I am grateful that I am able to visit other countries (and live in one of them!)
 
While grocery shopping yesterday and picking up some tofu I was very pleased to see my Cauldron veggie sausages.  My store stopped carrying them a couple of years ago and I have emailed the head store a couple of times to complain.  So maybe that helped?  I don't like Quorn sausages although I like lots of other Quorn products, and I don't like other brands of veggie sausage.  So I'm happy!!  I like to eat them for lunch like hot dogs - on bread w/mustard.

I'm trying to get more Omega 3 and 6 in my diet.  But I don't like to take supplements and don't believe they are very effective. I buy Omega 3 eggs, and eat walnuts on my salad.  But I'm trying to get more sources.  Salmon is a good one but hubby can't eat it.  So I bought some smoked salmon to have for lunch, and also some pumpkin seeds to put on the salad and alternate with walnuts.  

Workout at gym: (tried to do a solid hour of cardio but ran out of steam!)
  • 30 mins spin bike
  • 10 mins treadmill
  • 10 mins rowing machine
  • 5 mins elliptical
  • 3 sets of 12 on 6 resistance machines
  • cables/pulley for triceps - 3 sets of 12
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • S:  postworkout:  2 oatcakes w/pb
  • L:  chicken breast sandwich on whole grain bread w/extra light mayo, plain nonfat yogurt w/fresh raspberries
  • S:  clementine
  • D:  veggie & tofu curry & rice, salad
  • S:  grapes
  • Teas & water
TOTAL:  1493

Edited weight. Down exactly 5 lbs from a week ago. 3 is probably water so a 2 lb weight loss sounds good to me!  

Progress as of today: 26.2 lbs lost so far, only 12.8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 03/08/2013:
Pumpkin seeds are great for Omega 3, I'm trying to be mindful of it as well. I do take a supplement (we keep them in the house for the boys and hubby, who has ADD) but better to get it from food sources, I agree. I like the Morningstar Farms veggie sausages but they aren't the healthiest. Never tried Quorn's. Hope you have a good one!

grannyannie on 03/08/2013:
We don't have Morningstar Farms sausages here. We do have Linda McCartney brand but don't like them and I think they are quite high in fat. Cauldron is 80 cals each.


OhioRaven on 03/08/2013:
You certainly kick MY butt in the cardio department. Have a good day, Annie.


Puddles on 03/08/2013:
Good morning Annie - it helps to voice to the authorities sometimes. I did the same thing with our grocery store here and have gotten them to bring in some stuff I also use. If you don't ask you don't get nothing wrong with trying. Have a great weekend.


biscottibody59 on 03/08/2013:
You still did really well despite not getting a full hour of cardio--great job!

grannyannie on 03/09/2013:
Aye. The spin bike felt like an hour all by itself!


V on 03/08/2013:
Well you have been going at it like a beast since your return from France so I am sure it won't make a bit of difference! Congrats on your loss, have a wonderful weekend!

Today I am grateful for being retired!

Spin bike class then grocery shopping - healthy stuff only!  Hubby is off to visit his elderly uncle in the city for the day. I'm hoping to finish a book today (John Lennon - The Life) and start another one - a mystery.  

Going to invite our friends for dinner, probably weekend after this.  I'll be due for a higher calorie day by then.  I'll make my homemade veggie pasta sauce with penne pasta, homemade French bread, salad, Scottish smoked salmon terrine on oatcakes or French bread (a jar that friends brought us months ago), oatmeal raisin cookies and ice cream. Red/rose wine.  

Workout:
  • 30 min spin bike class - will be torture!  
Menu:
  • B:  porridge/cinnamon/raisins/slivered almonds/skimmed milk, tea w/milk
  • L:  pbj sandwich after spin class and before grocery shopping (never shop hungry!)
  • S:  plain fat free yogurt w/fresh raspberries
  • D:  veggie curry & rice, salad
  • S:  banana, 2 oatcakes & low fat cheddar
  • Teas and water
TOTAL:  1505
 

Progress as of today: 25.8 lbs lost so far, only 13.2 lbs to go!

Puddles on 03/07/2013:
Sound like a wonderful dinner that you have planned for your guests. Retirement is wonderful. Have a great day Annie.

grannyannie on 03/07/2013:
Yes, retirement is the best. I certainly wouldn't work out 8 hours a week if I wasn't retired, or travelling....


OhioRaven on 03/07/2013:
Give us an obscure/ interesting John Lennon fact. I'm a Paul McCartney fan myself.

grannyannie on 03/07/2013:
He was a heroin addict for a while. He was a genius but he could be very nasty to people. I always liked Paul the best but his behaviour the past few years has turned me off to him.


getmebackto150 on 03/07/2013:
Mmmmm... Your dinner party menu literally made my mouth water sitting right here at my desk... LOL! I agree shopping hungry is DANGEROUS!!!! Have a great day:)

grannyannie on 03/07/2013:
Yes, shopping when hungry is VERY dangerous!


biscottibody59 on 03/07/2013:
Have a great day--lots of sweating I guess!

grannyannie on 03/07/2013:
The class was pure torture! Not as hot as usual but I drank 1/2 litre of water in 30 mins.


Umpqua on 03/07/2013:
Your high calorie day foods sound awesome. Have a good one!

grannyannie on 03/07/2013:
Haven't made that meal for our friends yet. Overdo. Thanks.


V on 03/07/2013:
Hope you had the chance to finish your book :)I wanna come for dinner too I promise not to eat the cookies or ice cream but YES to the wine :P Hope your day was spectacular Annie <3

grannyannie on 03/08/2013:
I'd rather not serve ice cream with the cookies (low sugar & fat) but dessert is expected. But I don't want the leftovers in the house. Might try to think of a lower cal/fat idea.

Would be nice if the scale went down a pound every single day! But that's not possible or a good idea. 

Supposed to be a rest day but I did a 4 mile power walk down our road. I've been wanting to get outside. It's chilly out but there was no wind and I warmed up within a mile. I'll start taking rest days again this weekend. 

Workout:

Your flowers are beautiful!!! Are those irises? Glad you got your power walk in!! Do you take your camera with you on your walks?

grannyannie on 03/05/2013:
Those are crocuses. I take my phone which had a camera, but if I took my regular camera I'd be stopping too often to get in a good walk.

I want to take my camera on my bike rides because some of the sites of the boats on the river at sunset are really nice, but I don't want to stop. Maybe I will just have to schedule a photography ride and not worry about my speed or cadence that day!

grannyannie on 03/05/2013:
That's what I do. Exercise is separate from photo-taking trips.

Wouldn't it be great if the scale ALWAYS went down every day??? Your menu looks great!

I love to see the crocuses come out in spring through the snow. It is the sure sign that winter is over. Have a great day. I agree the scale is not always co-operative lol lol

grannyannie on 03/05/2013:
Very little snow for us this year which is fine with me! Love when the flowers begin to bloom.

Beautiful crocus - I can't wait for ours to appear (I planted a few new varieties in the fall)! Congrats on the continued loss, you are doing great.

grannyannie on 03/05/2013:
Thanks! I had hoped never to see 140 again, but oops...

Still good to see the scale move down I'm sure! Good going on the Power Walk! (woops--hit the button and didn't think it was activating:-)
