have fun with your family!
have fun with your family!
Glad you had a good time! You see, these things so often work out well.
Have a great time over the next few days.
Having a great time with my sister and her hubby - but eating terrible! The weekend on the boat was too many bites of potato chips, too many Lorna Doones, and I even ate a hamburger bun! thats only my second hamburger bun in 9 months though so I shouldn't worry about it.
weight it UP....... no suprise.
trying to get back on the wagon now...........
How are you feeling as a result of your treats? I see in your signature that your treatment is best when you follow the plan. Are you hurting now or does it require more than that? Just curious. :)
hum...... I posted earlier and it didn't post......... weird.
Jenn -- I'm feeling okay --- but definitely can tell I've been eating poorly. a few aches and pains in my arms and legs that aren't normally there. I'm getting back on track though and should be feeling great in a few days.
I'm starting to think the thyroid meds are working. I had a bit more energy than I normally have today - even in the midst of the poor eating over the past 5 days. I got up this morning and went right outside to water and do some weeding. It felt good!
My sister mended a LONG time broken fence between her and our mom while she was visiting. What a blessing to have that put to bed and healing in the future of our family. :) Many prayers have been about this very thing! Now just praises to offer!
Wow............ busy week! cooked a big indian dinner for the mystery guests last thursday.......... then my sis and her hubby were here friday - wednesday. Lots of cooking! We spent Saturday night on the boat -- played in the water most of the day saturday and sunday! It was great considering the temp hit 100! UGH! But still......... lots of cooking and entertaining and making sure everyone has what they need. After almost on entire week of it........ I'm exhausted and ready to just lay low......... left overs for dinner tonight for sure! that or maybe go out....... will wait to see what hubby wants to do. I've spread the left overs out on the counter to see what kind of smorgesbord we have.......... lets see --- some curry and rice, hubby's 1/2 left over giant burrito, some beanless chili, some rotisseri chicken, some steamed veggies and some tossed salad. :) I'm thinking chicken on the salad and heat up the veggies and I'm good to go! :) That or a taco salad with the beanless chili and salad! :)
time to eat.......... :)
Or a stirfry with your steamed veggies and rotisserie chicken with a salad on the side!! DH can eat the burrito and chili (but don't stick your head under the covers!!! hahaha)
Glad you're feeling well. :)
Jenn! thats funny - and OH SO TRUE!
Having a good day......... 'cept I had a bowel issue that about killed me! I haven't hurt that bad in a long time!
I need to go get my junk clothes on and start cleaning out the shop! We have friends who are doing a yard sale this weekend to raise money for a trip to Uganda for them and their 2 nearly grown sons. They are going on a mission trip with a few others from their church. We are going to donate a bunch of stuff to the yard sale and I need to go dig it out of the shop. We have an entire model train set that someone gave my husband many years ago. We never even took it out of the boxes so we have NO idea what is all there. And there is lots of other stuff we could get rid of too!
so........ here I go.
Wow - GREAT friday success story! those are the ones that get me excited and motivated to stay on track! I want to look like that gal!
Weight is 190 today. Thats a good thing - cuz after my several days of falling off the wagon I was at 194! That was Tuesday. So, in four days I've dropped those 4 pounds of sugar and grains BLOAT! Now that all the fun and family are gone its time to get back down to my lowest primal weight of 186 - and then go from there. I've decided my goal is to be down to my goal weight by June of 2013. That means I need to lose 55 pounds over the next 9 months. Which works out to 6 pounds per month. I can do that! I've seen it happen on the posts here - so I know its possible. I'm hoping doc will up my Armour one more notch when I go for my next blood draw in Sept. I'm feeling better now, and if I stay on a clean diet I know I will be feeling ever better day by day!
Feeling good today! I got a great nights sleep too! :) Life is always better when you've slept well! Yesterday I did some major cleaning in the shop - I gathered up tons of stuff to take to our friends yard sale - and most everything needed a good washing! Now that I'm started on that job I want to get it finished! I have tons of stuff to burn, throw out or take to the good will! I used to have a small business making yard art - but the economy put the brakes to that little endeaver! I sold my wares at Saturday Markets and garden shows around the valley. I did pretty good until the market crashed! So, now I have all my supplies left sitting there - gathering dust. I need to find a good source to donate or sell about 200 glass light shades. Here's a sample of what I used to create:
the wood is all recycled material - the top is an antique light shade - the solar panel comes from yard lights that I re-wired so the light was up inside the shade. It glows very beautifully at night! I loved building and selling these. It was my creative side coming to life! Maybe someday I will be able to do it again. I think I'll hang on to the glass shades for a bit longer! :)
It's friday - and my day off. No mom duties today! Yeah!
Blessings abounded over the weekend as my sister and mom reconcilled after a VERY long time of separation. My family is finally whole again. :) My mom is thrilled that she again has all 4 of her daughters back in her life. And I'm thrilled cuz if sister and hubby move back to Oregon I will have a helping hand with mom. Sister who lives here and has POA over moms stuff hasn't even seen mom in 2 months. When told mom thinks she must have done something to make her angry - she laughs and says - "well, the phone rings both ways". GRRR. Mom is old.......... and it time for us to take care of her! I wish sister would realize that just because she has a busy life doesn't mean she has no responsibilities to mom. whatever.........
Today is going to be a kick back and relax day. I'm going to go to Home Depot and buy some new drawer pulls for the upstairs bath (formerly known as the girls bathroom). My BIL was kind enough to mow my lawn while he was visiting so I'm off the hook for another few days on that task! :) yeah! I need a day to just decompress from having so much company for so long!
Dinner tonight is short ribs and steaks on the bbq - with sweet potato (for me) and white potato (for them) wedges baked in butter. Yummy! Maybe a little side salad too.
:) time to get caught up on some journals and then get moving! :)
There is a guy at our farmers market who makes things out of junk. he made a yard ornament "tractor" out of an old Singer sewing machine. So cool.
Enjoy your day off.
I'm feeling pretty good today! energy and drive! I changed the knobs in the bathroom and I think it looks pretty good - more up to date I guess. Did some housework, and got caught up on some computer stuff. Worked in the yard some...... these are my favorite kinds of days!
I haven't really been hungry today. I ate a small peice of salmon for lunch at 3 ish - and now I'm stuffed. I've stayed out of the freezer and away from the ice cream! :) I've decided not to buy any more Lactaid pills --- that way I have to say NO to all dairy! Except cheese - for some reason cheese doesn't bother me. Since I'm violently lactose intolerant - without a pill I absolutely do not eat milk products! Hubby wanted me to make some homemade ice cream so I have the makings for that --- but if I don't have any pills I can't eat it. :) I think thats a good choice - since ice cream seems to have a bewitching power over me! The house is free of chocolate, nuts and ice cream! My biggest weaknesses!
My capris are fitting especially tight today and I'm hating it! Course, I just took them out of the wash so they are not streched out at all. I want all my pants that I'm currently wearing to be TOO BIG! My favorite jeans - the Silvers I found at the Goodwill are still hanging on the outside of my closet door --- they are my first goal. To wear those jeans will mean I'm back the weight I was after using Medifast for a year - 165. Thats only 25 pounds away. Second goal is to get back into my wedding dress, that was at 155. Third goal is to be the weight I was when Dennis and I started seeing each other again - after a 20 year separation - that was 140. Final goal ---- 135 - my perfect weight for how I want to look. Last time I was 135 I was wearing a petite size 6. That would be WONDERFUL! 55 pounds to go............. I'm pumped and ready to get back on this! Hubby wanted some rum for the weekend --- he's had a REALLY tough week - so I just went to the liquor store. I've already decided I'm not having any. Don't want to rum calories, don't need the diet coke poison, and don't want to feel sluggish all weekend from indulging. So......... no rum!!!
