You must do the things you think you cannot do.   Eleanor Roosevelt
 
Today I am grateful for: more rain, a chill in the air, painkillers
 
Hello Lovely Girls, Forecast 71 degrees, if you can believe it. I feel as if we have fallen into some kind of time warp and whipped back to winter. Not complaining, you know me, love a chilly rainy day anytime of the year. I realize 71 may not be cold for some of you but it is here!! LOL   I put painkillers in my grateful list today because I need them today and was thinking about how bad it must have been when they were not available, terrible!! Poor people:(
 
Yesterday's Food wasn't great, not bad but not on point either. I let myself get to hungry because I was in pain. I don't know about you but I can't eat when I am in pain!! Then when it was gone I was ravenous!!  Anyhoo, I have my usual day, a little angel visiting, a little baking ( something with pastry today, haven't decided yet), must vacuum as the talcum is making it's usual escape from the bathroom, some washing and back to reading, starting a new book today - I have ten new books to read, don't know which one to start with, they are all thrillers or psychological thrillers (my favourite). Hope you have a lovely day girlies:) Love you:)
 
Yesterday's Food
big chicken sandwhich (no crusts, can't eat the crusts)
a slice of Belgian Carmel Cake (first time I made this, yum, the smell snuck up on me. I will be prepared next time and make it later in the day. All the school kids loved it and it has made the offical afternoon tea list!! Yay! It is hard to find things that all three LOVE!!
pb and banana on toast         Total  - I suspect around the 1500 mark........she hopes!!

Progress as of today: 25.1 lbs lost so far, only 61.2 lbs to go!

WII on 01/31/2012:
I so agree about being thankful for modern medicine! You have a great day!


grannyannie on 01/31/2012:
Don't know the origin of Umpqua's recipe. I never heard of treacle until I moved to Scotland, but still haven't tasted it.


grannyannie on 01/31/2012:
71 is very warm for Scotland! Have a great day and hope the pain subsides.


V on 01/31/2012:
Of course i will audition for any of Chalene's workout videos when there is a casting call :) It would be an honor, unfortunately there are none in the works but yes I am still prepping to get my Turbo certification! Have a good one


V on 01/31/2012:
Lub you too :)


Maria7 on 01/31/2012:
1500 mark sounds good to me! Bet your Grans just LOVE the carmel cake their Grandma bakes...sounds YUMMY!!! While you are having 'winter' in your summer...it feels like we are having 'springtime' in our winter! 70's here and WARM...NICE!!! :-D


selina on 02/01/2012:
Your foods sound so delicious! Have a good day, Moogy!


Umpqua on 02/01/2012:
That cake sounds SO good! As for a journal, the most regular one I've kept over the years is right here :) I've though about printing it all out, I should do that at some point. This and my gardening blog are the only ones I maintain regularly. I do however keep photobooks and those are the best chronicle of everything we've been up to since the boys arrived. I also kept detailed journals during both my pregnancies, but once #2 came there wasn't much time for that! Have a good one :D


mcwoo40 on 02/01/2012:
just passing to say hello,keep up the good work :-)


liza36 on 02/01/2012:
I'm sorry you were in pain, but thank goodness for pain killers, indeed. Enjoy your day, sans pain!

Today I am grateful for: grandchildren, my daughter, my home
 
Hello Lovely Girls, Forecast 86 degrees, Yuk! But, going down to the low seventies for a couple of days tomorrow, Yay! First day at high school went well for the biggest boy, he is in the same class as his best friend! Excellent! The second eldest is enjoying his new found rank as a senior in Primary School and the princess was asked to be a friend to a new girl who didn't know anyone. Nice! OK, so daughter and I have taken the angel to pre-school this morning, gone to get a new clothes airer (her's gave up the ghost through sheer exhaustion I think), because along with this unusually cool Summer we are getting heaps of lovely rain. So its cool but really humid. The cicada's are really making a noise this morning, this is the warmest day we have had so far, it was in the mid seventies at seven o'clock. Anyhoo! I have my usual routine back now the school children have left the building, so a little cleaning, a little baking (Belgian Caramel Cake today), and this afternoon my daughter and I are having a little session of Damn You Auto Correct because we could do with a laugh.
 
I didn't feel very well yesterday, long story, short version, I was diagnosed with IBS over twenty years ago, fixed it by giving up working. With the last year of upheavel, emergency room visits etc etc. it's back. So low carb is off for now, I need fibre!!!! Hope you have a great day wonderful women:) Love you:)

grannyannie on 01/31/2012:
I can find treacle here. Didn't really know what it was. Can't find whole wheat pastry flour through - or even plain whole wheat. How about using wholemeal?


grannyannie on 01/31/2012:
Hope you feel better and glad the kids are doing so well with the new school year.


Umpqua on 01/31/2012:
I had issues doing low carb from lack of fiber and I'm sure the IBS makes it very difficult. My friend has it and she works out of her house, which makes things much better for her. Feel better!


thinkpositive on 01/31/2012:
Damn You Auto Correct?? It does sound funny! And sorry to see that you aren't feeling great. It is nice when children are happy at school.


biscottibody59 on 01/31/2012:
Airer? I guess that's the same as dryer in the US?

Have a nice day!


grannyannie on 01/31/2012:
Want the wholemeal flour and treacle to make Umpquas gingerbread cupcakes. Nope, never tried a treacle tart.

Today I am grateful for: a cool overcast morning, a quiet weekend, being free to choose
 
Hello Lovely Girls, Forecast 80 degrees, I think Summer is finally arriving this week, the extended forecast has some hot days for us. I am sure the 'Summer' people will be glad and I suppose I should not complain, I got two months of an extended Spring, that makes for a happy moogy:) I am feeling like I have a fairly balanced equilibrium today. Not happy, not sad, just normal, so that's good as well:)
 
The children are with their father for the weekend so it's just us girls at home, I expect my daughter will sleep most of the weekend. She has had trouble with her breathing (we think the little clots are breaking up as she coughed up a little brown stuff in the week, TMI) over the past couple of days. Plus the children have not been behaving like angels for the last week of a very long holiday break, I have even been called in to 'deal with it' a couple of times. I am sure everyone will be happier when school starts:) I hope that you have a lovely weekend and enjoy yourselves:) Love you girls:)

thenewMLE on 01/27/2012:
Enjoy your girl's weekend! I hope your daughter feels better soon. My food choices have to be LEGAL or I will sabotage all this hard work!! I like to think of my choices as legal and illegal because I'm one that is easily "scared straight"! I guess I have always been somewhat of a goody goody and doing wrong scares me! Whatever works psychologically is all I can do!!!

selina on 01/28/2012:
I hope you'll still get a few more weeks of spring days. It's way too early for the summer to arrive! I hope your daughter's condition improve, coughing up things is too worrisome! Stay well and have a great weekend!


Umpqua on 01/29/2012:
I hope all is going well with the low carb. Chocolate covered Katie's site is AWESOME! I have spent a lot of time looking through her recipes and she has a very special gift for taking basic recipes and making them a lot healthier (and vegan, but I don't so much care about that). Most of her recipes are fat-free and sugar free!


biscottibody59 on 01/29/2012:
Hope you have a lovely Monday! Hang in there--the scale will cooperate eventually!

A peaceful weekend- sounds like a good time to catch up on your rest. Sorry that your daughter isn't well. As always, thank you for your kind comments.

Hello Lovely Girls, Feeling slightly better today, so yay! Just got back from doing a little shopping with the biggest boy. Had to stop by his new high school to pick up the last of his uniform needs. I had already spent over 125 bucks on a backpack (with insignia) and shorts and shirts (with insignia).  In the meantime his mom had spent a couple of hundred on uniform, books etc. My husband bought both boys new black leather shoes (an absolute requirement at both schools) which set him back  234 bucks (gulp!). The grandmother sent down the money for the sports uniform, another hundred. Today I got all the rest of the stuff he needs before Monday, including, if you believe this, a cooking apron and chefs hat!!. And we have to do it all again next year for the second eldest boy!!!! LOL Just as well we all chipped in to get this kid outfitted. It is a great school and only a block from home, he will be going with half of the Year 6 kids from his Primary school and knows lots of the Year 8 kids who were at his school last year. I am a little bit nervous, but putting on a brave face!! There are also some big kids who go to wait for it......Pede Polding Private College!!! LOL..... who go to church and have said they will be keep an eye out for him. The father has to pay full price for the biggest boy, a reduced fee for the second, the princess gets in for half price and the angel will be free and that is for the Primary and High School. Nice!! Maybe they give you money back if you have five or more!!!

I got all the food I needed to go low carb for a week, so I am hoping that will give my body the jolt it needs. I think I have started menopause, no sign of TOM for four months now. I am extra tired, more than usual that is!! That may not be helping things. Anyhoo! I shall just do the best I can, it is all I can do!! Thank you for all the support yesterday, you wonderful bunch of women.:) I love you heaps:)

Progress as of today: 25.1 lbs lost so far, only 61.2 lbs to go!

thinkpositive on 01/27/2012:
Yeah for menopause. :) As long as it doesn't do a job on your emotional equilibrium ( or however you spell it).We can only do our best, I agree. Gosh it is expensive to raise children & provide what they need, that's for sure.


selina on 01/27/2012:
It's incredibly expensive to give children a good education! I bet he looks cute in his new school uniform, though. I think you are right about getting money back when you have a number of kids - at least in France. They'll give you enormous incentive for population growth!

Hang in there with the menopause, hugs!


Umpqua on 01/27/2012:
That's so nice to hear about all of you pitching in to get the big boy outfitted properly. I wore uniforms for most of my school career and I know it got expensive for my folks. Glad to here you are feeling better Moogy and I hope you have some fun with the low carb stuff!


liza36 on 01/27/2012:
I hope the low carb plan works for you. I did low carb years ago, and it worked well. It was hard, but I liked the results. Have a great weekend.

Hello Lovely Girls, I am not feeling great, a bit down, my usual cycling with my Dysthymia. The scale not moving is not helping. I thought I might go low carb for a week just to see if that gets things moving. I still love you though:) And just to show I haven't lost my sense of humour:

a lower carb, higher protein diet filled with healthy fats (MUFAs) has done wonders for my weightloss and energy levels.

Feel better soon!

You've had success with lowering the carbs before and I know it always works for me. Take care Moogy!

Oh, it can be so aggravating when we've done our best and the scale is not rewarding us but I believe it will show soon on the scale...sometimes those things can be 'off' for a day or two, it seems. :-D Take care.

Hello Lovely Girls, Another fabulously cool day forecast 77 degrees, woohoo!! I have taken the angel to pre-school and tidied up my little home, it is a overcast and wintry feeling day! Weird weather, although, I am not complaining:) I liked today's quote, it sort of explains why I still love my husband after ten years of seperation, it's just love. The on-going reconciliation/divorce talks are continuing on the downstairs front, although, this morning I was informed that the son in law is in hospital with an ulcer!!!....... I am saying nothing, well, just a bit......procrastination will do this to you!!!:)
 
I will be quiet today with the angel away and the biggest boy is going round to a friends for the day. Although that does leave the middle two who always seem to manage to rub each other up the wrong way, it's a clash of a Leo and a princess, stand clear and light the wick!! No movement on the scale. It is so hard to keep up the enthusiasm when you do not get results. I shall plod on and hope that I get another big jump down SOON:) I seem to be on a reading binge at the moment which beats the other sort hands down. I have to go now my book is calling:) Have a great day lovely girls:)

Hello Lovely Girls, Sorry I was gone for a few days, trouble with the modem on the hub not the router!! Forecast 77 degrees, and the cool summer continues. I am loving this, it was actually quite chilly yesterday!! Brilliant:) I had two dodgy days while I wasn't able to get on here, which just goes to show how important it is to write my diary everyday:)

It was the princess's 6th birthday yesterday, clothes seemed to be the order for the day, dresses in particular and of course, pretty sparkly things, can't start them too early!! The children have another week of holidays to go before it's back to school. As a result I have no idea what I will be doing today, I am tending to get roped into games as they are now pretty ready to get back to school. I hope that you had a good weekend and that you are looking forward to a healthy and successful week:) Love you girls:)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/22/2012:
Hey Moogy! Sorry about your lack of wireless these past couple days. I was looking through your a few of your most recent entries at your overall calories and you are doing a nice job! Remember, try not to starve yourself - if I eat under 1200 or even under 1500 I sometimes feel deprived and then binge later. I know everyone is different, though.

I am trying to get to 115, ultimate goal. I am 5'1.5" - pretty short and my muscle is mostly in my arms/upper body. my legs are not muscular. so, 115 is def not too light a weight for me. I really wanted to reach that weight by April, but if I don't stop my weekly higher calories on weekends it won't happen...

Today I am grateful for: knowing myself well, lovely dreams, living in the heart of my family

Hello Lovely Girls, Weather 84 degrees. It is after 8 a.m. on Wednesday morning as I type and all is quiet downstairs, they are all in holiday mode and not rising until 9 a.m. I would love to be able to sleep past 7.30 but I just can't, as soon as the birds start I begin to wake and this time of year it's early, around 5.30. The bonus of early rising is that I get to hear the kookaburra's to who like to stake their claim to territory early in the day. The cockatoo's are also back but they rise later, I suspect they like to get their grooming in on their beautiful white feathers before they screech across the neighbourhood.!

Anyhoo, two things to report, the children are all going away camping (yuck!) for four days with their dad and grandparents. Second thing I had a huge jump down on the scale this morning, I think I must of willed myself into it and am now at my posted weight. Yay!!! However, I think that my quote for the day would be one to serve me and others well. Oh! and the Chocolate Cookies Cake was a great hit, it smelled delicious and lasted all of about two hours downstairs.  Have a great day girls:) Love you all:)

Congrats on the loss moogy!

Sorry I havent commented much, Im still trying to catch up with everyone!!

BTW, I love camping! I cant wait until my boys are both old enough to do a real camping trip. For now, Ethan is ok with camping in a tent in our backyard. :)

Today I am grateful for: love at home, lots of rain, a good book
 
Hello Lovely Girls, It's going to be sticking around 80 -84 degrees all week and then, we are dropping back down to the mid seventies again. I am LOVING this summer!! I didn't do an entry yesterday, I was sooo quiet, it rained on and off all day and it was really cool, I was reading an enthralling book which I couldn't put down, except to feed myself and watch an hour of tele when my soaps came on later in the evening. The princess came up at 7.30 and put an end to my calm day!! Not a bad night though:)
 
The scale is not moving, I have been as good as gold, I know all the reasons why it is not moving, however, I am feeling frustrated! Anyway, I shall keep doing the right thing and hope that my body responds appropriately. I have already taken the angel to pre-school and the princess is coming up later for a cooking session, we are baking a chocolate cookies and cream cake (it has biscuits in the cake - serve it with ice cream and all needs would be met in one!), it will be going downstairs as soon as it cools enough! I hope that you have a good day:) Love you girls:)
 
Yesterday's Food
toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich   405
chicken stroganoff with tagliatelle     504
macadamia and cranberry bar  200
WW nut deluxe bar   151   Total    1260

Progress as of today: 25.1 lbs lost so far, only 61.2 lbs to go!

Elvis is coveting your sandwich:-)

LOL, Moogy! I don't feel elderly, I feel like 40 most of the time. :-)

Hang in there, that stubborn scale will move!

Oh my gosh I can smell your cake & cookies baking all the way from Singapore. Hope that the scale moves after your hard work.


Umpqua on 01/17/2012:
