Weight: 306.0

Again I got sidetracked with my creative writing, however, that is over today, so BOO!

Friday we put chicken into the crockpot and when we got home we should have some yummy chicken chili ready. DH's sister is supposed to drop by, she lives over 3 hours away and has come up for alternative reasons, but since she is here she said she would drop by. It was OK. DH spent the most time with her, I tried to NOT be rude. I invited her for dinner, but she said she needed to get back home.

Settled in for chili and baseball!

Saturday the girl and I ran some errands however I didn't get to the last two which was cancelling the YMCA membership and getting Steve's nails clipped. He is sliding around on the floor, very funny to watch, especially if he is in a hurry. I will get this done next weekend.

Again we had chili because I made so much, matter-of-fact DH will probably eat it everyday for lunch this week.

Sunday I was up at 4:30 because of bad dreams, I took a shower and went downstairs. I started laundry and fell asleep in the recliner until about 8:30 woke up with a pounding headache and after that it was just blah! I didn't leave the house, but the laundry got completed quite early.

B: blueberry bagel with cream cheese

L: cheezits, brownie

D: kinda beef strognoff but no sour cream - DH made this and enough for tonight's dinner.

Not too bad eating this weekend, but I could not get up and around -


Progress as of today: 15.6 lbs lost so far, only 96 lbs to go!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 10/31/2016:
Chicken chili sounds good. I doubt i'll ever have time in the near future for being home enough to learn to use a crock pot. Do you put anything in it to help with cleaning? like do you use aluminum foil or anything to prevent the foood from getting on the actual pot? or is there a shortcut way to keep it relatively clean?

I'm sure the chicken meat tasted absolutely great and slid right off the bone after cooking for a long period of time. so nice.!

in terms of the headache and everything, sounds to me like you needed some rest which you got later in the day...sorry you weren't feeling that well.

unlike your weekend, i was sorta forced to get around...now i'm tired LOL.

innerpeace on 11/01/2016:
There are crock pot plastic liners/inserts you can use in the crock pot, but I never have.

I didn't use chicken with bones. I have an aversion to chicken with bones, that grosses me out, so I used boneless chicken. Afterwards I just let the pot soak for a few hours and I never have trouble with cleaning it.

DH got the girl took her to the dentist - 2 cavities...what the what!! This makes me sad. I guess it is too much of a hassle for her mother to ensure the girl brushes her teeth. DH took her to the library for the haunted ginger bread house. I guess she had a good time. DH then went to Subway, since he didn't get home until right at 7:00. The girl's mom is usually there before 8:00. We eat and both of them take a shower and she is gone.

DH asked about the class at the gym, I just told him that I decided to stay home. I did take the dog on an extra long walk, so I don't feel bad.

We settled in watched the Tribe lose - hope they win tommorow.

B: yogurt, iced vanilla latte

S: protein bar

L: two pieces of ham and cheese rolled up. cheezits

S: gummy fruit

D: DH took out a meat that he wanted to grill - uh no propane, so either we come up with something else or we will be going out. I think he liked the sound of going out so who knows what will be for dinner. I would love to sit at the sushi bar, but DH not so much!

It is cold and rainy today in the CLE so not much on the agenda.

Havea great night and GO TRIBE!

Cavities = annoying when the person is just a kid. Didn't get my first cavities till i was in my 20's...but...had an exceptional dentist in the tri-state area, doubtful most are so lucky as I growing up (but that's a side note, not trying to boast.) For a long time now, I know I am very lucky compared to just about most..

Love Subway too :-) I had it last night also...but it's really not that filling because it's all bread....i tend to eat too high calories sometimes if i eat extra after it...which is what i did last night i ended up having too many chips in combo with the sandwich which makes it sorta high calorie....but still lower cal than fried food, i'd say. mc'd's and burger king whoppers are more calories.

lol...i see you like yourself some gummy fruit?

Cold & Rainy here too...be safe on the roads, IP. I have already heard of someone being in an accident with her car. But she is ok. Take care 7 stay well! :-D

Yesterday picked up DH, he did mow the yard one more time, homefully that will be the last time. We have reported ice pellets today at work..ACK! I walked the dog and found a jewelry box someone was throwing out. I picked it up and some jewelry and stuff was left in it...too bad I don't wear clip on earings. Lots of braclets and neckaces, one cool ring, a couple of broken watches and several pairs of clip on earrings and broaches. I also found a set of car keys, but, since there were two - one for the ignition and one for the trunk I figured that car was long gong, so I just tossed them in the garbage. Neat find for the girl.

Dinner: DH grilled chicken and was going to make quesadillas, but the propne tank went empty and he had to finish up on the stove. The onions were grilled and carmelized and they were delicious. The avocado sat a couple of days too long on the window sill and that got pitched in the trash.

DH is picking up the girl today and taking her to the dental apointment. She then as a haunted house ginger bread activity at the library he is taking her to. I am 'going to class' when I'm actually going to go walk at the park. This has helped considerably and I enjoy the alone time. This weekend will of course be a whole different story.

Stayed up and watched the TRIBE win!! Hope they do it again tonight. I am thankful the weather is rolling in causing an earlier start, because last night I didn't get to bed until almost midnight.

B: yogurt, iced vanilla latte

S: protein breakfast bar

L: 1/2 quesadilla, cheezits

S: peanut butter M&Ms

D: subway

yes very cold a shocker here too in NYC. Woke up in the low 40's...had to turn on my heat!

yes, neat find for the girl as far as the earrings and stuff!

LOVE quesadillas but don't eat them often because they are too tasty and i tend to pig out on them...!

LOVE grilled / roasted onions though...i once bought only those type of onions at the store!....

enjoy the walk at the part for sure...hopefully it stays decently comfortable for walking weather out there! :) dress warm!!

Working on about 3/12 hours of sleep. I will chalk it up to eating a slice of pumpkin roll at 9:15, I think that sugar kept me up all night long. I tried to go to bed at 11:00, but tossed and turned and went back downstairs at 11:45. I stayed up until 2:45. I remember looking at the clock at 3:15 wondering if I would every get to sleep and then I was up at 5:30 and Tuesday always seems so long in my office, so making it through this afternoon is going to be a struggle.

DH wanted to do yard work tonight. I'm thinking, uh NO, but I do have to get the weeds out of the flowerbeds, hopefully this will be the last time. DH also has an appointment with the surgeon next week to decide on his knee surgery. One recommended a partial knee replacement, but if a total knee replacement is inevitable, wouldn't you think they would do it now? Whatever he decides I sure hope it helps this time, the last ten months he has been miserable.

B: yogurt, iced vanilla latte

L: roast beef, cheese, crackers

S: cheezits

There is chicken out tonight, I think we decided on quesadillas.

Been walking the dog more than usual and ...yoga!

I have been keeping myself busy, I think I go from one neurotic past-time to another. I have a friend who is a writer and she was posting a picture a day (something crazy and/or eerie for the month of October) to write a flash fiction story about, so for the last three weeks II've been challenging myself with coming up with a creative store - that the picture inspired. I have been having a lot of fun and trying to be creative. This has kept me from playing so much candy crush, but like I said, it's so just all or nothing. I just can't seem to spend a little amont of time on each or just one. And of course I have to watch my fair share of sports.

Saturday - This was a kidless weekend, which I love. Saturday, I was up and walked the dog and cleaned the house a little. I ran to the store to pick up a few things. I ask DH what he wanted for dinner, he didn't set anything out, so I picked up stuff and made Salisbury steak, roasted acorn squash and a red cabbage slaw with cilantro and lime. It was all pretty tasty. I watch football most of the evening.

Sunday - Laundry! DH went shopping.

B: toast with peanut butter

L: pizza from Wal-mart

D: malt-o-meal - I love this stuff.

I received a promotion at work, but since then I have been making nothing but errors! OMG, it has been terrible. I didn't even want to get up and come to work today...and I hate property inventory! Now, I've been task to find a creative something activity for the work folks - because I haven't done anything since the Kentucky Derby.

Tonight I think we are having chicken quesadillas with avocado.

Have a great night and GO TRIBE!

I get so busy! Friday was just a long long day, I get sad because we go get the girl for the weekend. As always this makes me feel down. DH gets in the car and tells me that she is at her grandmother's house. I said OK. As we are driving I get a text message from his ex-wife telling me the girl is at her grandmothers. I'm like does she not think DH will say anything to me? Anyway DH texts her back and says - yes DH told me. She replies OK great! Like we are best friends or something - NOT the case.

We get the girl and she is in long pants and boots and her heavy coat - it is not cold out.

We get home and cook dinner - we usually go out on Friday's but didn't due to plans all weekend.

Saturday morning DH gets up and goes to work. I don't even pretend like I'm going to class, I just roll over and go back to sleep. I am up and about at 8:00 though. I get the girl up. She asks what are we doing. I told her we have a play to go to in the evening and I wanted to watch a football game at noon. But before that we were going to a book sale. We get ready to go and she has flip flops on. I tell her to go and get her other sneakers on - she says - they don't match what I am wearing. OMG - you picked them out - you wear them. They are green and pink. She only brought her boots, and she wasn't wearing flip flops! She put the shoes on and we stop at a garage sale the people comment that her shoes are beautiful, fun and they just loved them. she didn't take the shoes off.

We got to the book store and then come home. I tried to watch the football game, but she is watching Disney channel on the iPAD and the volume is up as loud as it will go. I asked her to turn it down and she does, for a minute. I just would rather watch football then deal with this.

B: pumpkin bagel, cream cheese, iced vanilla latte

L: 2 tacos

D: penne, chicken, cheese, garlic sauce pasta, salad

DH finally gets home and showers and we head out to see the BFG play, which was very cute and funny. We ate at an Italian restaruant, which was ok.

We get home about 10:00 pm. Sunday we are up again about 8:30 and get motivated. We were going to a Bugle Days Elk Farm for a tour. It was fantastic. We got to see lots of elk, try the elk meat, which is leaner than chicken and have a farm tour. It was a good afternoon. I get home and do the laundry thing.

B: bagel with butter, iced vanilla latte

L: no lunch

D: teriaki chicken, rice, green beans

S: piece of pumpkin roll

Monday was work.

Tuesday was work - but I left early. I came back and picked up DH and again we go for the girl. She never ceases to piss me off. She gets in the car with these ugly thong shoes on and says her sneakers are soaking wet because her dog peed on them. Are you kidding me right now? She has three pairs of sneakers. oh well! We get home and do what we do. Which is lsten to her babble because we can't hear the television. DH is oblivious he just sits in his chair looking at the his phone.

Wednesday work.  Just work stuff and stuff and I'm sick of work.

I did get on the scale and weight about 4 pounds less, but I will post this later.


Have a great evening.

Yesterday I left the house before DH and the girl got home. I again didn't go to the gym but to the park. I walked as far as I could, sat a minute and then walked back to my car - it was almost 2 miles. The park closes at sunset, so i was rushing to get back. I saw several deer, it was quiet and pleasant and I should do this more often.

I get home and eat the delicious dinner my DH has prepared - I say this in sarcasm because he said he 'didn't feel like cooking' WTH - well I didn't feel like 'going to the gym" either. He buys Burger King! - Still haven't told him about the gym thing. I will after it is over. I like walking better though.

D: 1/2 whopper, NO fries, DDP

It's great how I woke up with no body pain, this is the third day in a row - so this makes me happy.

B: FAGE yogurt - iced vanilla latte

S: protein bar

L: 1/2 turkey pastrami sandwich, cheezits

S: balanced breaks

D: TBD - the chicken is thawed from last night it may or may not get cooked.

I am looking forward to taking my dog for walk - he loves it - me I may start to love it.

Weekend looks pretty busy with the girl. Play in Barberton, OH on Saturday and then there is a Autumn Bag Lady Tour we are thinking about and somewhere, somehow grocery shopping and laundry.

Have a great evening. IP

I am so happy you are doing an activity that you enjoy. Walking is great for your health. I remember when i was jogging tons. Boy do i miss it. Getting back into it though, little by little. Still I tend to walk around 1.5 miles i think usually when i do? You are doing awesome!

Keep on walking. Paying for the gym was good for you because you ended up realizing that you enjoy the park!

not too bad on dinner, good you had the drink to fill you up...that's a good idea...to eat a little, then sip the drink till your stomach is content!

if you don't feel like cooking, you can do chinese food...some meat and veggie dishes even! sauce on side even or get the normal dishes and get extra steamed veggies with it? you don't HAVE to cook to eat veggies. this is how i do it....sometimes $$$ though.

hollybelle on 10/13/2016:
Good for you again walking in the park. That is what I do - we are lucky enough to have several city parks with walking tracks of varying distances in our two and three are within short driving distance of me - on is within walking distance. We wee deer and other animals all the time. We even have some coyote! We have seen wild turkey - all kinds of birds, too. It can be very peaceful and relaxing.

Tuesday night got home. I had a dental appointment, which wasn't too bad this time. My hygenist cleans my teeth with high powered water spray. This is only the third or fourth time I have had this done. It still feels uncomfortable but I like the fact that it doesn't take very long. No cavities so all is good. Floss people!

I get home and DH has cooked the kilbasa and sourkraut, my house spelled just awful. I ate some but I thought the sourkraut was just really super sour. I walked the dog and got all the way around the block and no back pain! OMG this amazes me.

Tonight the girl is over, however, since I'm not technically going to class - I will go walk in the park and/or do cardio at the Y, I will only have to see her a short time. She can spend that good quality time with DH. DH strongly encourages the class, he just doesn't want to waste the money I spent on it.

Here are a few shots of my shelf I finished over the weekend, oh and I did go to a book folding class on Saturday, the pumpkin is my first attempt. I will try something else in a week or two.

B: FAGE maple yogurt with granola, iced vanilla latte

s: protein bar

L: 1/2 turkey pastrami sandwich, cheezits, banana

S: balanced breaks

D: chicken was out, I'm not sure



The shelf is painted with chalk paint - first time I've tried this (and I messed up my firefly stencil. It is in the spare room - no one ever uses.

Very nice job on the shelves way to go! I'm glad you didn't have any pain on the walk...and that you are walking instead of the class. It just matters that you keep moving, class or no class...and that you enjoy it! Go you!

Well let's say in the last five days I have done things, just not truthful about them.

Wednesday - I meant to go to class - but I just feel that it is too hard for me (even with modifications) I am just really out of shape and i feel my back holds me back from even bending over at times. So I told DH I was going to class, but instead I went to the park and walked. At first I just sat in my car and read a book, but then decided to get out and walk, it was a very pleasant day.

Thursday - scrambled at work for people still leaving to help with Hurricane Matthew - they departed - was hoping at the time things wouldn't get too bad. One girl kiinda misrepresented herself and cause major havoc.

Friday - I took the day off from work. I had things planned, but alas, these never come to fruition, sometimes the brain just needs to rest.

Saturday - Again, i told DH I was going to class, however, I just went to the park again. Walked about 1 1/2 mile before my back acted up. Went home and started to work on my shelf, watched football, cooked dinner.

Sunday - went grocery shopping with DH, hung out at the house.

Monday - Columbus Day - DH went to work, another day at home, finally finished the shelf -I'm pretty satisfied with it. Will post pictures tomorrow as I forgot my phone at work today. Ran some errands I was on a mission to find FAGE yogurt. I find the greek yogurt to not be so bitter or sour or strong, however, you describe greek yogurt. And I just love the maple flavored flip. i found them at a different store than we go to. There were only three or four flavors at Wal-Mart that I didn't care for. This morning I had a carrot ginger flavored with pistacios - it was so good.

Tuesday - work again. Dumb lady knew on Wednesday last week when i was making her travel arrangements she wanted to be home on Sunday. She kept telling me I don't know how long I will need tos tay in NC, so I purchased her a one way ticket. However, her underlying agenda was to be home on Sunday, regardless of helping, because she had tickets to the football game between NE Patriots and CLE Browns. So she calls my boss Saturday night whining and cying that she was stranded and needed to get home. WTF?? Anyway, boss was peeved that she was stranded and couldn't get her back on that day, so he amended her travel orders and she arrived home Sunday around midnight! Though she didn't make it to the game, members of her family did. This is not the issue - I don't care about the game. I care that she misrepresented herself and could have said she wanted to come back on Sunday instead of saying she didn't know when. So she got back from NC only to go back today...this is what angered me! What a waste of time and money! Sometimes I just want to strangle people.

Been eating better at home because DH got lectured about his blood sugar levels at his doctor's appointment. Not he is all gung ho about eating right. I hope this lasts awhile.He does have another appointment for his knee on the 20th.

Tonight, I will go to the semiannual dentist appointment and see what's going on there! Should be good as I have been flossing alot!

B: Fage carrot ginger pistacio flip. iced vanilla latte

L: 1/2 turkey sandwich, cheezits,

S: breakfast protein bar - balanced breaks

D: sourkraut and kilbasa - I think.

have a great night!

I am so proud of you for walking instead of just reading - as far as class-what DH doesn't know won't hurt him. Would he be upset if he knew you didn't want to go?

Horn_of_plenty on 10/12/2016:
Wednesday - a walk at the park sounds great! Nothing to be ashamed about skipping a class that you don't like. If i don't like something, i don't continue either!

Friday - it's ok. we all need rest days here and there. i hope you were able to relax a bit.

Saturday - sounds like a nice walk. Good to stop if you have any pain. Maybe see if you can look up some back stretches. I do happen to know a good one - if you want me to try to google you a video of it?

Sounds like you had something better than greek yogurt or is it the new yogurt dips flavors? Sounds like you might have had the Icelandic Skyr yogurt? Those are GREAT. Lower sugar than Fage...also maybe at walmart and usually at Target.

If you eat better...he will eat better. if you buy less junk food or substitute it with lower cal options - even my fave sugar free jello and you can even put strawberries into it after you pour it in a bowl, fruit is so nice in the sugar free jello!...you can eat so many things that will be just as good as the higher sugar stuff...and still be full. If you have the options at home, it will make it easier.

the best advice i can give, is to always have veggies around...you can make a meal and instead of putting it on top of pasta, but it over cabbage? just substitute the healthier for the less healthy...and still eat a lot! :)

Well the last three days have been very hectic - but I think the worst is over. The new fiscal year is upon us and trust when I say, it was a very large undertaking to get all the financial coding changed! And I've still been dealing with the property stuff, which still isn't fixed, but that is coming along slowly.

Saturday I got up and went to my class - OMG it was hard and then she took our weight and measurements and then OMG again! The girl was with me and there is a family room. We are supposed to do at least 15 minutes of warm up prior to class and I had the girl in the room with me and she wouldn't do anything. She wouldn't even get on the recumbant bike - that isn't asking too much of her - she is almost 200 pounds - but it was like she would die of embarrassment or something. I was just trying to get her to move, but she wouldn't so she took the phone and sat in the lobby until I was finished. This angered me! On the way home I had to stop at Wal-Mart to get stuff to make Chili for work, she had to have some kind of special marker for school and conditioner which she ran and got. When we get home, she just runs in the house. Didn't worry about the bags in the car that needed to be taken in the house, she has no care in the world. It would be obvious to me to offer to help someone carrying in bags of groceries, but I guess this is old school. (bags of groceries to make chili - If DH would have said he didn't want to go shopping I could have done the shopping for home as well - but NO)

I purchased some arborio rice and wanted to try to make a risotto. It turned out OK, I could have cooked it longer, and I added some shredded chicken - it was ok, the girl didn't like it, so DH ordered her pizza. This was the original plan anyway, I just wanted to try the risotto.

Football was watched, we did stuff around the house it was just a lazy Saturday with my sore body.

Sunday laundry off course - DH didn't feel like shopping so he sat around all day - dreaming of building shelves in the basement. The girl left at noon, which I was happy about. DH made a lasagna type dish and we ate that and salad.

Monday we had left over lasagna and green beans. We went to an adult coloring class which was kinda fun and relaxing. And then I put together the chili for the chili cook off at work - I came in 2nd!

Tuesday we pick up the girl and stop by the library to pick up their craft project from last Wednesday. And then DH decides he wants to eat steak at LoneStare at the spur of the moment so we eat steak, baked potato and salad (I did). We ate numerous dinner rolls! Big mistake. We get the girl home, they shower and I help her with her homework, then she leaves and I'm happy again.

Tonight is class again and we really need to go grocery shopping.

Hopefully work has settled down - or it will after the hurricane Matthew gets out of the way. We are sending people down to assist the weather office's in the area. Big Mess I hope everyone heeds the warnings, better be safe than sorry!

Have a great day!

Adult coloring class? I do adult coloring books, but never heard of a class. Interesting.

It was at the library. They furnished the pictures and crayons, markers, pens, pencils, had music and candy kisses. It was nice. Lots of older women, myself and I made DH go, he was the only guy.

hollybelle on 10/05/2016:
Sad girl wouldn't try the bike. She may be embarrassed, especially if she is self-conscience about her weight. What would happen if you asked her to come back and help with the grocery bags?

Attitude probably. I will ask next time and see how she takes its.

Hello Inner!

Sounds like you are getting it done & that you have your ships aligned nicely and it will work out for you in the end at work.

A big congrats to you on a job well done at work! I have always loved the feeling of accomplishment when working tirelessly or rather just putting the good efforts in. Such a good feeling when it’s over & completed and that achievement that comes with it.

Tell the girl that it’s good for her and make sure you praise her a lot for even her littlest effort. Lil Girl is at a very tough time of her life. And she will either become better with it – or destructive. I do believe with you as her guardian it is so good for her and helpful.

Try to be that role model & get her to join you. I think in general she should participate. Explain to her that little by little she will get stronger. If the girl doesn’t realize on her own that you need her help with the groceries, you are going to have to ask her (nicely). Have her help you – teach her to assist you without you asking every time.

I think that if the girl and hubby don’t like – they shouldn’t be allowed an alternative really…you should all eat what you worked on, I think?

It’s def ok to rest. Rest is very necessary in a fitness program. You can put anything on a salad, even top it with the lasagna to make the lasagna more filling…that’s what I do. I eat anything and everything with veggies to fill me up volume-wise. Enjoy your class tonight.
