    Great video Candy in Wonderland. I will try it soon. Breaking news on the fish front - I had talapia (okay I crusted it with Parmesan cheese) last night and it was good. Next step cod, then I will reattempt salmon!

    Funny story... this is exactly what we do with fish. DH's dad always did it and we followed suit. I thought it was just some silly wife's tale thing... had no idea it's what the pros do! Sweet! But we soak it longer... good to know we don't need to soak it overnight.

    I personally like the fishy smell

    So, the scales were up again. Wednesday is my official "write it down" day. So 189 had to go on my chart --- CRAP!!! I didn't even get to record the 186 cuz it didn't happen on a wednesday. I'm so bummed. It will come down. I think its just water weight cuz I've been eating very healthy stuff - it can't be real weight.

    Hubby came home yesterday and said we're going deep sea fishing Friday. Salmon! Yeah Not thrilled with the idea of going out in the big water........ it sorta freaks me out to be out in a little boat in all that water! I've gone on 3 cruises - the giant boats don't scare me - but the little boats scare me. It will be fine --- thousands of people do it every day. I'm looking forward to landing a couple big fat salmon though!

    I think I'll pull bubbles out of the garage and go for a bike ride this morning.

    Had my blood drawn yesterday to see whats happening with my thyroid. Sure hoping she will bump me up to 30 mg a day. I think I would feel better - and maybe it would help with my weight loss efforts too. I should know in a few days I guess. I didn't ask her how long it took to get the results. I'm hoping to hear by Friday.

    Yesterday we hired a company to wash the outside of our house - and all the windows inside and outside! The even cleaned the roof and gutters! The house is so clean and nice now! I love clean windows! Now I just have to keep up with it so we don't have to hire out again. Seems we do this about every 5 years. Its not a LOT of money, I guess it worth it to have it done instead of having to do it myself. I tried to convince hubby that I could do it - but he didn't want me climbing up and down the ladder and getting on the roof and stuff. He's a little over protective - but I sorta love that about him.

    Step daughter #2 is moving into another apartment with a friend, so hubby will be moving her on Saturday. This time she is taking the bed from our house! One more thing out of her room! I'm going to ask hubby if we can box up the little that is still in her room and turn that room into a home office. We need one so I can have a place to work on the business books. There isn't that much left in there -- a small book case with some books, a small student desk with a printer that won't work, and a large chest of drawers that still has some clothes in it. I want to paint and put up some curtains first, then get a desk that is big enough to work at. I'll get it all set up so I don't have to drag every thing out when I need to pay bills. Using the dining room table is getting very old! In the long run I think the other daughters room will be the office and #2's room will be a guest room. But for now, this will have to do.

    My son is still dragging his feet on the process of moving out. Not sure what to do about it. He was going to call yesterday to see about getting his paperwork started for the prequalification stuff. But, he said he was in a meeting all day at work and didn't have time. It only takes 2 minutes......... he could have done it during his lunch break. I'm getting frustrated!

    I'm going for a bike ride..........

    AWE............... that felt GOOOOOOOD!!!!! Instead of a bike ride I took apart SD#2's bed and washed up the sheets and mattress pad so its all ready for hubby to load into the trailer tonight! I can't wait to redecorate that room! She painted it this very vibrant blue/green - its nasty. I'm thinking a very warm burgandy or a butter yellow? Yummy! Maybe I'll start shopping for fabric to make curtains - it has the wide plastic blinds over the windows, but needs curtains to soften the edges. One more step to being empty nesters! Yeah!

    My hubby cheats so much it's ridiculous too. But he was never entirely sold, just willing to go along without complaining. But I keep chipping away at him with more information. Hopefully he'll come around bit by bit.

    The fact that he is jealous of me helps, LOL! He was always the athlete and me the dumpling, and he's having trouble dealing with being the fat one in the family. Well, one of them...

    I wish my hubby was more health conscious...... but, he's always been a bit of a butter ball. He's short and stocky - so he easily puts on weight. But I love his short stocky-ness! I never was attracted to tall lanky men. My ex was only about 5'10", but he was on the thin side, until middle age gave him a gut. I wasn't very attracted to him physically.

    the ex was a rebound relationship that never should have resulted in a marriage. I was young and very stupid! He was 14 years my senior and we had nothing in common - but I had known him my entire life, he was family friend, and I thought he was a safe option. I had been left by every man I had ever loved, either by death or by choice, they all left. I didn't think he would --- until I pushed him to work on our marriage - and then he made it clear he wasn't interested in working on anything. And again - the man leaves.

    Not quite sure why I went into all that........ must have needed to purge a little of the old scars.

    I decided to fast today. So I went 22 hours fasting. It felt good - maybe I've got a need to purge in more than one way! I broke the fast with a nice peice of salmon fried in butter. yummy! Dinner is ready - when hubby gets home we'll eat. I think I'll steam the veggies instead of roast them - its too hot to turn on the oven!

    I never really went for the tall skinny ones either, although it wasn't a deal-breaker. I liked them lean though, think soccer or tennis player physique. That's what hubby used to be... LOL! Although his muscles do bulk up very easily. He was a soccer player when he was young, good enough to be offered a sports scholarship. I wasn't kidding when I said he was the athlete in the family. Three of my four nieces have degrees in human kinetics (phys ed to us old fogies) and the fourth is just a teenager. Athleticism runs in his family, obviously. I, on the other hand...

    I don't mind if he's rounder now than in his 20s and 30s, but there's a little too much of a good thing going on. He's pretty unhappy about it too, but he has a very stressful desk job that he could easily work at 14 hours a day. And he clings to a lot of conventional wisdom. At least I've gotten him to cut out soft drinks, and greatly reduce his bread and carb consumption. Better might not be perfect, but it's better. Heck, even before I knew anything about primal, I was telling him those were his two big problems. It was kind of obvious. And he has lost a little weight over the last year or so, so progress is being made.
