Good morning

Yesterday was good food and water and yes one glass of wine. 

It was good to have the company come over for lunch and I spent a wonderful afternoon. 

Today I am taking the day off.  Finally the hot/humid weather is finally breaking and we are back to normal for this time of the year. 

The laundry and the house cleaning can wait - that is the nice part I know it will still be there tomorrow waiting for me lol.......  

Wishing you all a wonderful day.

Our humid weather is supposed to break today too, but so far it's still very soupy outside :P Enjoy your day off!

Good morning guys

Yesterday was good water and food I seem to be getting back on track but I have to admit it is hard to get out of the party mode.  lol...... Its not the food - not having cravings but I am missing my glass of wine .... lol.....  might not be a good idea to live overseas but I was getting more exercise there then here.

Today already did my errands because it is going to be another really hot day we hit 40C again yesterday and today will be just a little cooler.  I am looking forward to Fall weather one of my favorite seasons.

I am having company over tomorrow so that will be nice - I have not figure out yet what I will be doing but it will be simple -  it is for lunch and afternoon so not a big event.  Probably going to do salad with some protein - fruit and yogurt for desert. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Sounds like a nice normal diet.

biscottibody59 on 09/08/2015:
Do you have a mall nearby--or maybe you don't care for mall walking. Just a thought:-)

You're doing well--keep up the good work!

puddles on 09/08/2015:
I am not a mall person - not a big shopping person either so crowds are not my thing. I love to visit things. But I will get back some kind of routine plus I leave for Winter in a few months and it will all solve itself on its own.

ohioraven on 09/09/2015:
Time to visit your Local museums.

Umpqua on 09/09/2015:
^^Good idea from Ohio. Museums are lots of walking and steps and will be much cooler than an outside activity. I've also done mall walking with friends in the winter here, I don't particularly like malls but they're giant and great for power walking.

Good morning

Yesterday was good on food and water low plus one glass of wine.  It was a week of wine so I thought I might as well finish it off the right way.  I am going to have to give up my wine routine from Paris. 

So it was fun, noisy, crazy - about 15 people - crazy humid thank God for A/C.

I have not decided what today will bring I know it is a holiday here so probably just get some stuff done around the house which I have neglected since I got back plus I had neglected it before I left on holidays so it really needs some work. 

Not sure also what the menu will be today but definitely some of the veg in the fridge before I loose them and have to put them in the garbage.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good afternoon

Been away again.  Food and water have been pretty good not complaining.  Will be glad when Summer is over and I can settle into a easier routine from being on the go all the time.

Today is my granddaughter's birthday party so I am out again for the party.  Should be ok not going to worry about it will pick healthy anyway.  I enjoy now actually craving healthy instead of the fatty because I get so many side effects of the fat calories it just sits in my stomach and I don't feel right for extended period of time so not worth it. 

That is it for today hoping for a quiet week and will try to make it happen as far as I know I hve nothing on the books for this week.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good morning guys

The past few days have definitely not been perfect because cottage and booze go together lol lol.

So I am back home and back on track.  I have a lot to do around the house and get everything put away.  I have to stay put for a few days lol... I have been on the go a lot with the holidays and then going away again.  OK back to work on my goal.   I will not weight myself for a week not that I feel as if I gained but just in case.  I will give it time to readjust.

Wishing you all a great day.

Good idea about holding off on weighing yourself.

puddles on 09/04/2015:
I could not resist the scale and there is only half a lb difference so not to worry.

biscottibody59 on 09/04/2015:
Sounds like a song--"Cottage and booze, cottage and booze, tra-lala-lala-lala-lalaaa!"

Good weighing plan too!

Have a good weekend!

Good morning

Hi guys all is good food and water.

I am off to breakfast with brother and s-i-l and then from there I am going to the cottage for the rest of the week.  The weather is going to be high for the rest of the week and the cottage sounds perfect.  You would think I would want to be home especially since I just got home but a week at the lake sound perfect lol...... 

Hope you all have a wonderful week will check in upon my return.  I am not bringing my laptop and turning the world off for the peaceful sounds of nature.

Good morning guys

I am back on my routine still struggling with the time but all else is good food and water.  I weighed myself this morning because it is the last day of the month and I always keep a log of the full month loss.  The posted weight is right I am 206.  I started August at 210 and now 206 -  4lbs this month. 

September starts tomorrow and that is my last month on my one year challenge.  I wanted to be at 200 by the end of September but 6 lbs is a lot to loose.  I will have to accept close enough as good and considering how close it will be I consider it a success.

Today is very hot here and the entire week will be very hot.  Tomorrow out for breakfast and then meeting a friend in the pm.  Will be going to my S-I-L another one from my husband's side of the family -  a few days at the cottage will be nice with the weather being what it will be. 

Wishing you all a great day.

Wow ! Fantastic ! You are a Healthy Girl. Close enough ? I'd say you're a success. It's good to have you back giving us inspiration. Congratulations on the loss.

puddles on 08/31/2015:
Thank you but you are also an inspiration for me. Your persistence and I am so envious of your water intake.

Umpqua on 08/31/2015:
You have done amazingly well and you should be very very proud!

puddles on 08/31/2015:
Thank you but could not have done it without all of your supports on this site.

livinglight on 08/31/2015:
I agree with the comments above - Congrats! Pat yourself on the back :)

biscottibody59 on 08/31/2015:
Good going!

Yes, an inspiration! And through your vacation- that shows your dedication.

Good morning

I am back and having a hard time adjusting my inner clock -  Yesterday was a day where instead of having 24 hrs had 30 hrs.  Today I need to adjust my eating times also.  It is worst going backward in time then going forward in time.  lol.....  Anyway I am back, I am safe and I had a wonderful time and now onto the next amazing stage of my life.

Next week is my granddaughter's 7th birtthday so a party.  Tomorrow out for breakfast with my brother and S-I-L and we have a lot of catching up to do. 

I feel a little swollen from the plane ride so will wait to get on my scale.  I feel good about it anyway so nothing to worry about sure would love to see the same number as on the Paris scale but we will see.  I will tell you guys later this week.

Wishing you all a great day.

Tomorrow I go home so I will not be posting for a few days til I get back into my own time zone.  I am taking advantage of today.  Trying to soak it all in.

Good morning

I got on the scale this morning because my pants are getting loose and I am down another 2 lbs.  It just seems to be falling off with all these walks.  I am walking almost from morning till evening and it is paying off.  I decided when I got here that I would do that simply because I wanted to explore the little streets and the different neighbourhoods.  

So I am back for lunch and a small nap before I head out again. 

Tomorrow is my clothes shopping day.  I will get some accessories and a few other things but since my size is changing no big clothes items.  I also have to bring back some small things for the kids. 

Well off to lunch and a snooze before my next adventure.

Wishing you all a great day.

Dang ! I knew I should have gone to Paris. It's Great to hear about your adventures. Keep it up.

Umpqua on 08/26/2015:
Fantastic! That's one of the things I miss most about living in a city. I used to be able to eat a lot more because of all the walking. Enjoy it :)

thinkpositive on 08/26/2015:
That is fantastic to be losing weight on vacation. When we were in Paris we walked 5-7 miles every day! Such a good way to live.

biscottibody59 on 08/27/2015:
Weight loss continuing on your vacation is a cool thing! Congrats!
