Long weekend due to Canada Day on Monday; it was a wonderful one for sure!!

9 holes at the golf course on Saturday morning; man I was out of practice after so many days off (4). In the afternoon I tackled my big flower bed, pulling weeds and trying not to get too close to the rose bush for fear of bumblebees attacking me. Still some work to do on this flower bed.

I really didn't feel like doing much on Sunday, so I drove out to the lake where a few friends were camping, and hung out with them for the afternoon. Does swimming in the lake count as exercise? And tugging a friggin 18 foot dingy behind me while swimming? With people on it? Regardless, it tired me out. It tired out my knee as well; getting on and off the dingy was really tough on it; I was worried I may have done some irreparable damage to it but it seems to be okay this morning. Went to the ball game in the evening and we WON!

I slept in on Canada Day, then spent half the day waiting for a friend to stop by for a visit. Very, VERY frustrating when someone tells you they will be coming through town before noon, and then doesn't show up until almost 3:30pm. When you are leaving at 4:00pm because you've now made other plans. So there was a short visit, then a few of us went to the driving range for an hour's worth of work, and out for dinner. Dessert was ridiculous; I ordered a sundae for three of us to split, and it was HUGE. Ridiculously huge. I was on a sugar high for the rest of the evening, which we spent at the ball park again! Another WIN for the local team!


Breakfast / Morning - coffee with sugar, water with iced tea, water with mio

Lunch - 12:00pm turkey sandwich or chicken salad from the cafeteria

Exercise - 4:30pm golf 9 holes

Dinner - 6:30pm leftovers (1/2 thai chicken wrap, 1/2 cup mac & cheese)

Other - 7:00pm ball game

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Happy belated Canada Day ! V wrote yesterday that she was going to watch American ninja on t.v. last night. It is an obstacle course that competitors run through. Hauling passengers in a Dingy eh' ? Go easy on the knee.

legcramps on 07/02/2013:
The show sounds interesting, will have to look for it over here in the hicks ;) Thanks, I will take it easy today on the knee but so far, so good.

Umpqua on 07/02/2013:
Belated Happy Canada Day! Sounds like you had a really fun weekend and I'm glad your knee recovered after they dinghy incident. Hope you have an excellent golf game today!

Breakfast: black coffee, 1/2 cup strawberries, 2 tspn whipped topping

Lunch: black coffee, beef burger on white bun with condiments, 1/2 cup pasta salad

Snack: 1 can soda :-/

Dinner: hot dog on white bun with condiments, 1 cup pasta salad

Snack: 2 glasses diet soda :-/

Dessert: 1 serving oreo cookie cake (there are three more servings left)

I finished the leftovers yesterday, aside from the pasta salad of which I made another batch because it was so yummy.

No exercise; I was tuckered out after work, so I did a few things around the house and then took a nap. When I woke up from my nap, I was grumpy and hot. So I kept to myself last night.

My List of Things To Do is getting longer with each passing day. Time to make a new list and start prioritizing!


Breakfast: 1 cup mocha, water and liquid crystal light

Lunch: 1 cup pasta salad

Snack: 1 can sparkling juice

Dinner: 1 cup pasta salad

Dessert: 1 serving oreo cookie cake

I need to add more veggies to this, and I know I still have some strawberries to finish up in the fridge.

I would like to golf after work today, but I have a tonne of other things I should get done instead. It might be time to catch up on everything and everyone that i've been neglecting.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/28/2013:
I hope you get some golf in at some point over the weekend. Enjoy!

OhioRaven on 06/28/2013:
Hey, LC. It sounds like you've been a busy girl. Take Care.

V on 06/28/2013:
Hello there!! You must keep me in the loop with Mr X...Is it the shy golf guy or someone else??? Anyhoo hope you have a stellar weekend and as always thank you for your support and bringing a smile to my day <3

Mskitty on 06/28/2013:
Have a kickbutt weekend.

biscottibody59 on 06/30/2013:
You're really into playing golf--or as it's pronounced around here (parts of TX)--"gahf!"

Have a nice week!

So awesome. Warning... Long catchup post ahead.

I had another garage sale on Friday evening and Saturday morning; it went a lot better and I finally got rid of a few bigger things that were taking up my garage space :) I don't recall what my meals were!

On Saturday after the garage sale, I shot 18 holes at the golf course, watched part of our local baseball team demolish their opponent, and then headed out to a cabaret with friends. I was the designated driver (doesn't happen often, so I had to mention that LOL) and had a pretty decent time; I even talked to X, though I really would have rather not; he then decided to start texting me after I got home (which was around 3:30 a.m.). I ignored after a few and passed out in bed. Long day! I had fast food today :(

I felt so blegh when I woke up on Sunday; I managed not to do anything in the morning except nap on and off on the couch. A friend finally woke me up and took me golfing for another 18 holes. Lots of water today, but still very bad choices in eats.

Monday - Yet another 18 holes of golf. Also, I really needed to eat better, so I got Subway today and split it into two meals. Better.

Tuesday - It rained. Boo. So I mopped the floors, did some laundry, and cleaned the bathroom. I also picked up groceries and paid my taxes for the year. Wow, there goes half my savings. Yuck! Still trying to clean up my meals... today was not such a great one for eats.

Wednesday - It was so beautiful outside during the day! I mowed the lawn, pulled weeds and trimmed trees outside all afternoon. Managed not to get sunstroke though that was kind of a miracle. Then I hosted a BBQ; burgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, veggies, fruit and dessert! I made an oreo cookie cake that was marvelous and used light whipped topping, fat-free pudding, and reduced-fat cookies or whatever they're called. Anyways, it was delicious and I will definitely be making this again this summer!

Due to the late night, I was slightly bleary-eyed this morning. Hopefully the next two days at work go by quickly because there's a long weekend coming up after Friday! I'm so lucky!!!!

Eats today: leftover burger, pasta salad, strawberries and whipped topping, coffee (p.s. i've icksnayed the mochas and am drinking my coffee black), and idon'tknowwhatfordinner. I really need to start planning my meals again.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

Umpqua on 06/27/2013:
Wow, you've been busy. Good going on all that golf and your garage sale! Your BBQ foods sound amazing too. Hope the rest of your week is fantastic.

puddles on 06/27/2013:
Nice to be playing so much golf. I am jealous. lol Have a great evening.

hollybelle on 06/27/2013:
Packed schedule! Thanks for catching us up! RE: Planning meals. It's key for me. Sometimes I am in such a flow on it and other times, just not even inspired....what do you think makes the difference?

I don't recall having gotten any sleep last night aside from an hour or so this morning where I turned off the alarm and then fell asleep.

All good, at work I am. My hair isn't even all messed up considering what it normally looks like in the morning.  I guess I didn't have to do any pretzel-ish movements that would mess it up, since I didn't fall asleep until morning. But i'm not bitter. And the coffee ain't bitter. But it will be. When I toss it. No more coffee past 12pm.

I would like to scream.

I feel (and let's face it, I probably look) a little like a walker from The Walking Dead, only difference being i'm not fixin' for any raw flesh. Yet. Someone slap me if I start gnawing on my left hand.

So. What were we talking about?

Had another meeting after work yesterday, got home afterwards and cleaned the house in anticipation of a garage sale happening in my garage today and tomorrow. Yep. That's where the party will be. BYOB.

hollybelle on 06/21/2013:
I hate not to get more sleep than that. I don't sleep really well most night - but lately it seems better. I take Alteril (OTC med) when it's really bad - hope you get some rest, it doesn't rain on your whole weekend and your garage sale reaps some $$.

Mskitty on 06/21/2013:
No sleep sucks- try to get some extra in on your weekend.

biscottibody59 on 06/21/2013:
Are you getting any of the flooding? I think I've given up on Mother Nature to save us from ourselves here--we got several days of rain last week, but it amounted to maybe a half-inch overall! The rest of the summer is predicted to be dry as usual!

Hope you get some sleep!

Umpqua on 06/21/2013:
Love that picture, I have felt like that many a night. I hope you get caught up on zzzzzS this weekend!

V on 06/24/2013:
LOL LOVE the pic and I hope you got in some quality sleep this weekend <3

I hear it's supposed to start raining again today and not stop until Monday :( that is a very depressing thought.

So I managed to get the afternoon off yesterday, and around 1pm I headed out to the golf course for 9 holes. We got stuck behind a group of six seniors, man that was annoying. They wouldn't let us pass them, little buggers. It was a beautiful day, got lots of sun in and had the best game of my life so far :) I took three strokes off my prior best game!

After golfing, I had a few bites of potato since I missed lunch, then got ready to head back to work. After the meeting was over, I rushed to the grocery store to pick up some crackers and cheese for a BBQ birthday party at a friend's place. I was hungry again by this point and we all know it's never good to go grocery shopping when you're hungry... I managed to restrain myself and only purchased what was needed. When I got to the BBQ, we gave out the birthday gift and had some food (more potatoes, must be a theme for this week! broccoli salad that was delicious, a spinach salad with egg whites, a few pieces of sausage, small slice of ham) and a cupcake. And then, because I can't resist cheesecake, I had a slice of that, too. So it wasn't the best day eating-wise, but i'm not about to beat myself up over it...

In fact, I also had a glass of whiskey that very nearly plunged me into the world of zzz's. For some reason I thought it might wake me up... it did not, and so by 10pm I was begging off for the night and curling up on the couch at home.

Progress as of today: 17 lbs lost so far, only 8 lbs to go!

whiskey always perks me up... unless that is why im drinking it, then it knocks me out lol... have a great day!

Umpqua on 06/20/2013:
Sounds like a fun day yesterday, even if the whiskey did make you sleepy. Congrats on having your best golf game yet, that's awesome!

OhioRaven on 06/20/2013:
Funny post today. Glad to hear about your game.

V on 06/20/2013:
Hahahahaha well you just answered my RYC as to what to do on a rainy day....Drink I say, LOL Seriously maybe you can have a friend or two over for Dance Revolution..Have a good evening girly!!

I am happily exhausted today ;)

After work yesterday, I ran around for a friend's birthday gift, got changed into my golf wear and headed out to the course for 9 holes of wonderful LOL. Then I got sad because I thought ahead and realized I wouldn't be able to golf again until Saturday at the soonest :(

So my friend and I figure we could both take some flex time from work this afternoon and get another 9 holes in before the weekend ;) um, obsessed? YES. We'll see if that actually happens though!

After golfing and having some dinner (the standard meat and potatoes G'Ma used to make and not something I eat on a regular basis), I mowed the lawn! I was out there until sometime after 9pm, but I got it DONE!

And in the process of mowing the lawn, I scared a baby bird out of its' nest :( I can only find two babies left in the nest now, and that damn cat was hanging around licking its' paws last night grrrrrr.

Lunch today will be a sandwich from the cafeteria because I still haven't managed to cook enough for leftovers.

V on 06/19/2013:
I am sure the other babies were ready to spread their wings! That cat better behave or ELSE!! Have a good evening friend <3

I was tempted to cancel my golfing outing yesterday because I was still so very tired after work. Plus, G'Ma was in the hospital overnight so I spent a few minutes gabbing with her. I really just wanted to go home and take a nap, but once I got changed into my golfing attire that kind of changed ;)

And then, once we were done 9 holes I wanted to do another 9! Of course I didn't because no one else wanted to...

Isn't it interesting how easy it is to forget what you have in the freezer until you have nothing left in the fridge? I found a heat-and-eat lasagna in the freezer and 20 minutes later I was gobbling that down - it was actually pretty good for a frozen meal. Or maybe I was just THAT hungry.

I slept soundly last night; closed my eyes on the couch and they didn't open again until morning. My muscles hurt from the wierd position I had to sleep in on the couch, but i'll take a deep sleep over a little muscle pain any day. I'd been needing a sleep like that for a few days now.

I didn't accomplish much else yesterday, but like I said to myself right before my eyes closed, I said "some weeks it's hard to find the motivation for things you think of as chores, and some weeks you can just do it without a problem". This just isn't my week ;)

Great work getting golf in yesterday, I'm sure you felt great afterwards. And yay for a good night's sleep, I'm really due for one.

Chores can def WAIT!! LOL Hope your Nana is doing well <3 P.S. snooze button is my bff ;) have a good one girl!

OhioRaven on 06/18/2013:
Yes, LC, I hope G-ma is good. No about the bags. I've climbed out of the basement after it got warm outside but I'm sure I'll be back down there when it gets cold again. Get some sleep !

So I woke up with a sore throat yesterday, after spending a rainy day on the golf course Saturday. Hopefully it won't develop into something more; but am still feeling a little run down today.

I spent the day in the city yesterday and had a visit with Dad as well as stocking up on some essentials. Unfortunately I didn't get much done at home, so i'll be spending my spare time this week in the yard, doing laundry, and cleaning floors - oh my!

Eating was fairly decent throughout the weekend; I didn't get any meals made for the week so maybe tonight i'll cook up a batch of something or other to get me through. I'll be checking out the cafeteria for lunch today, and have no idea what i'll have for dinner. If i'm still feeling this tired after work, I might give myself a nap and then maybe i'll have some extra energy for cooking :)

The weather has been pretty dreary around here lately - high winds, lots of rain... the sun doesn't seem to want to shine much, but if it's decent later I might try to get the lawn cut.

Have a good Monday!

Oh. Em. Gee. What a crazy, long, amazing day!

Great charity golf tournament today, up bright and early for breakfast, then out on the course for 18 holes of pure fun! My awesome team of three ended with one over par, a few wobbly drinks drunk, and I foresee an early bedtime ;)

We were poured on three times but they never cancelled the tournament, so we stuck it through to the end. Troopers! They also gave us a smorgasbord dinner and I filled my plate with salad, potato, and meatballs. I'm still kinda hungry though, so I might end the night by warming my chilled body with some soup. Or maybe i'll take a hot shower and pass out ;)

If I don't develop a chest/sinus cold after being thrown to the elements today, I will be completely amazed.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dads on DDs for tomorrow! I'll be spending the afternoon with my Dad :)

Wow, it's Friday already! Sweet.

I went golfing again yesterday and scraped up the best score i've had to date! Just in time for the tournament tomorrow; hopefully it won't storm on us but it's calling for lots of rain which has already begun this morning :( I know we need the rain, but it gets in the way of my outside activity time!

My babies are still safe and sound ;) The dingo did NOT eat my baby LOL. They were sleeping soundly when I left for work this morning. Oh my God I need to get a dog before I become obsessed with these birdies ;)

I was so tired last night but had an extra coffee during the round of golf so it was hard to get to sleep at a decent hour. I'm yawning big today!

If the rain keeps up, golfing at 4:30 will be cancelled, as will the baseball game later on. Might be a quiet night for this girl.

Foods were AWESOME yesterday. Feeling like i'm getting back on track. Aside from the extra caffiene I took in, my eating was quite perfect. Boss took me out for lunch and we had sushi which made me ever so happy, and filled me up for the rest of the afternoon. Then rice, a little hamburger, and more green stuff for dinner. Keep it up, kid!
