Good morning everyone! Aussie and Keet you both look like teenagers! I'm glad you had such fun together. When I win the lottery we're all getting together!
I've been in a mood this week worrying about my job change. Pink's post was just the ticket for me.
I have been doing pretty good with my eating. I've had a couple of hiccups but nothing too crazy. I continue to learn about myself and how my moods affect my eating. Self talk really helps.
I'm home today - took the day off. I'm going to get my eyes checked this afternoon and get some new contacts. Yippee! It's been too long. I don't know why I put off going because I do have good insurance. Too many other things to do and on my mind.
No food plan today so far. I've got some cherries and grapes. Fruit is about the only thing that sounds good. It's too hot for much of anything.
Abby, Kathy, Kim and Rachael please come and visit. I hope you're all doing well. I miss you!
Happy birthday dear Pink! What a beautiful post from a beautiful woman. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I'm getting a job change and have been trying to remain hopeful that it will be a good one for me and that I will be able to get along with my new supervisor so your post is very timely and something I need to ponder and remember. Thanks again!
Good morning Judy and Keet. Where are the rest of you lazybones? If I can get up early on Saturday so can the rest of you. I've been up for three hours already.
No food yet today. I'm not hungry yet. I've had some coffee though. I had Chinese for dinner last night - vegetables and bbq pork. It was very good and I didn't even miss the rice.
I had a bit of a freak out yesterday. I had about eight pieces of dark chocolate. I'm feeling a bit stressed about this job change and my office partner was bugging the crap out of me. She's trying to catch up with something she should have been doing all along that I had told her she should do over a year ago. All I can do is document as I go along when I take over the cases. Yippee! Oh joy and gladness. It's a good thing I don't have a lot of food here at home. ..lol.
Keet congrats on the weight loss. You go girl!
As always Judy you are an inspiration. Thanks for being here!
WOW Kathy! Hopefully this newest specialist will be able to come up with something to help your eyes.
I've developed a hernia - it's right above my navel. My doctor says it's a small one and as long as it doesn't bother me we'll continue to monitor it. I think it's one of those things that appear as the fat disappears. I do hope the one your hubby has is not serious or causes complications.
Like the saying goes - getting old is not for sissies.
In the meantime I'll be sending healing thoughts and prayers your way.
I had a chicken salad sandwich on wheat and some cherries for dinner last night. Also a couple of swigs of mango tea.
Today at work I'm having low fat cottage cheese, more cherries, snap peas, pistachios, coffee and maybe an apple this afternoon. The cottage cheese I will be making last most of the day, eating a spoonful here and there. I seem to do better if I just graze over the course of the day.
I'm so happy it's finally Friday. I'm looking forward to sleeping in a bit for the next two days.
I'm getting an assignment change effective the 28th. It's back to doing something I already know how to do, however, I'm kind of leary about my new supervisor. Her people/supervisory skills are lacking imo. I'll deal with it as I know I must. I'm not quite ready to retire yet even though I can.
Aussie, how many of those luscious cheddar bay biscuits did you have at Red Lobster?...lol. I have to limit myself to one otherwise I would eat the whole basket. Just call me Ms. Piggy. I'm the same way with the breadsticks at Olive Garden. GRRR.....So many temptations everywhere.
Judy I'm glad you enjoyed your lobster. Too bad about the onion rings though. I'm sure you enjoyed being out with your hubby and imo that is important too.
Good morning my friends!! Janine I'm sorry to hear you're having problems. Hopefully the new med will help. XOXOXO
Lobster Judy? Can I come too? That sounds SO good. You and your onion rings...lol. I'd rather have a baked potato but that's just me.
Tia you are doing so well! You've got to be proud of yourself. I certainly would be.
Aussie I'm glad you're going to get a little something from your poor garden. Once those squash start coming on they'll probably be coming out of your ears. I love all the different kinds of squash mixed together and cooked with some celery (the way my grandmother always did it)
Yesterday I had McDonald's oatmeal, two yogurt parfaits, an apple, pistachios and a V8. For dinner I had a grilled chicken salad with basalmic from good old Jack...lol.
I stopped at the store this morning and they had Ranier cherries on sale for $2.99 a pound!! What a deal. Naturally I had to grab a couple of packages. I just might have to get some more and pig out on them since they're such a good price. I also got water, snap peas, yogurt and cottage cheese.
We're having some strange weather. It's overcast and misty this morning and only supposed to be in the 80's temp wise. I actually got cold in the night and had to pull the sheet up. It sure felt good for a change.
That's all for now. I hope everyone has a wonderful and healthy day!!
I haven't been able to get over to my sister's and weigh on her digital scale since I can't seem to get mine adjusted right. So, if you don't mind let's leave my start at 235.3 (I think) and end at 230 which is the last I remember.
I feel like such a lagger for not getting my scale adjusted properly but when I get frustrated with something I sometimes tend to say to heck with it, kind of kick it to the curb like you would a lousey boyfriend/girlfriend...lol.
Maybe we should try this again in a couple of months.
Kathy I think that's exactly what you needed to do - take a couple of weeks off and relax a bit. I feel pretty confident that when you get back on the wagon that the weight will start coming off again. You needed a 'reboot'.
I've cut back on my food intake lately. Not intentionally but I haven't been very hungry. It's been hot and I've been feeling bloated, nothing much sounds good either. I have been on a roasted chicken and broccoli salad kick lately which is about the only thing that does sound good. That's what I had for dinner last night. I just might have to have it again tonight and I don't care what the people at the deli think either...lol. Heck, maybe I'll have a $1 burger and side salad.
Today I had a yogurt, snap peas, cherries, pistachios, coffee, diet green tea, a V8 and a couple of dark chocolate squares. And water of course. I need to go to the store in the morning for yogurt and fruit at least, maybe some cottage cheese too.
I sound like I've got the blahs, huh? I guess I kind of do but at least it's not the kind that makes me want to go out and eat everything in sight. Maybe I'll buy myself a couple of beers - that will put me to sleep for sure since I haven't been sleeping all that well either. If it's not one thing it's another - or three.
Good morning! Judy the pups are too cute but I bet you'll be glad when they go home.
What's up Keet honey? You're having a really rough time lately with just about everything. Poor girl. I hope things get better soon. You deserve to feel good.
Yesterday I ate two granola bars, a couple of servings of popcorn and nuts. Then I had a grilled chicken salad. It's too hot to want much of anything to eat not to mention I'm totally bloated and sluggish still. I'm going to throw that medication away. To hell with my triglycerides! I've been reading about walnut oil and that it can lower triglycerides. I'm going to give it a try come payday. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
Nothing much of anything sounds good to eat. I'm not particularly hungry but I'm sure thirsty. I've been drinking water like it's going out of style - probably three liters yesterday. Some mango tea sounds good. I've still got some cherries. I hope they're still good.
I hope some of our other friends show up today and let us know how they're doing.
