Hi, ladies! I hope that you are all enjoying some well-deserved down-time.

Carol, did you have a nice evening with your grandson? I have twin nieces who are around the same age, are they are hysterical. They would definitely vote for pizza.

Julie, thanks for the cheers! I hope I can get down a few more pounds this month. I struggle with staying on program when I'm traveling and when I have lots of social events, both of which are true, starting tomorrow. So I've been reminding myself of my mini-goal and my 2005 goal, and will make a point of meditating in the mornings, to clear my head. Anyway, watch out for the hair-raising shocks I hope you get some nice surprises this week to balance out the nasty ones.

I didn't make it to the gym this morning. I got a late start, paying bills and chatting with a neighbor who I hadn't seen in a while. So I didn't have a morning snack, and I will take a long walk this afternoon. I came to work this afternoon, but I'm not getting much done, so I'll pack up soon and give it up. If I don't check in for a few days, it's because I didn't have easy access to a computer on the road. I'll definitely be back on Wednesday.

Until then, make good choices!

judy

Lightbulb Hi All

I've had a rough couple of days. I'm dealing with some stuff(business-going through records etc...) regarding my husband's death and I'm sitting with some intense feelings. It makes me feel physically sick--sore throat, headache, tension. I've been getting support but that doesn't take the pain away. I just have to feel it and get through it. My eating choices have been so-so. I had ice cream 2 nights ago and sugar free-fat free ice cream last night. I have my (not so little) girl to think of and that's good. I'll be dealing with some of this stuff today while she's away at a friends house. Thanks for listening.



Breakfast: wasa crackers with goat cheese

lunch: smoothie

dinner: tuna salad

I don't feel like cooking.

Sorry about the depressing post. That's me today. It wont last forever.

Your posts are such a comfort. I love that you are all doing so well. I'm going to try to make it to the gym today.

Thanks for the support.

Love, Roll

Hello everyone it was a busy weekend lots going on. My intake was a bit off but not too bad it will all balance out I figure. We didn't have pizza the other night because my grandson had a cold and only said he wanted hot soup. So tomatoe soup it was out of the can with some crackers. He was happy with that. Since I had a ruebuen sandwich for lunch tomatoe soup was good for me too! We had fun together he went to the craft store and bought some safari animals plastic nicely designed and wants to collect them. He started off with water wild life. There is a whole collection of them nice to get into collecting and pretty reasonable on the pocket book. I took him for a hair cut also and he played on the computer and made a shoe box jungle and painted it up. We did some creative things and it was fun.
No real exercise this weekend and I got done with Tom and thats never a fun time. So today I will exercise after work. The sun is shining brightly today but its only going to be around 30.
Rollmdl as Julie said we are here for you never feel bad about sharing your feelings. This is a supportive site and we are here for you. Things will get easier down the road for you it takes time and you are going through all the emotions and thats important. My sister lost her husband at 48 suddenly and its hard I know from seeing her go through it. But its been 10 years and she lives a different life now but he is never forgotten by any of us. Take care and one step at a time.
Judy sounds like you got it together there with balancing your good times out of town. It sometimes takes just a little more exercise to balance out those times but your getting it down.
Julie your intakes look good. Hey God is just seeing how much you can carry on your shoulders. Maybe you need to ask him to lighten up your load for a bit and let you just hang in there for a bit. You sure have had a lot of stuff over the past 6 months. I guess you could look at it as he is making you stronger? But how strong does one need to be????????? Your doing good with your attitude and intakes. Thanks for the info. on the mag. and I will see if I can get it here?
Intake: 1 whole wt. english muffin 110 w/ jam 50
Snack 1 yogurt 90 w/ few walnuts
Lunch; spinach salad 2 cups, made w/ peanuts, gala apple 1/2, tangerines, o.j.and balsamic vinegar w/ spices. 250 cals.
Dinner? we will see later on

Lightbulb Thank You

I got through yesterday with lots of help. Thank you so much for your kind wishes and smiley faces. I have a really big week this week and I get to end it by going to traffic school!!!! I'm actually looking forward to it ---8 hours of no stress.

I did the water aerobics class this morning. It really covers a lot of bases for me--resistance training, aerobics and stress reduction---being in the water is so soothing.

Yesterday I found my TWELVE YEAR OLD daughter in the kitchen wrapping low-fat cottage cheese and ginger marmalade in iceburg lettuce leaves--like a wrap.

My eating plan for the day:

breakfast: chicken salad with celery(always the traditionalist)

lunch: whole grain bread w/ egg salad

snack: orange

dinner: well, I am making the pot roast recipe from this months Cooks Illustrated.............and potato bread and we'll have cantelope wrapped in prosciutto and my friend is bringing Caesar salad. I won't eat till I'm sick, but I'm thinking that what I DO eat is not going to be low cal. Every once in a while..................

My friend is also my daughter's contact person from the charter school that she is signed up with. Whenever we meet, we have a meal---usually good.

So, thanks again for your kindness.

Carol, you didn't mention whether you'd gotten any new clothes when you went shopping with your friends.

Julie, bummer about the medical bills. I had the same surprise when I had my butt exam. It was MUCH more than I'd anticipated. My insurance has been raised 20% in the last year

Well, I've gotta go tend to business. I've got to get ready for tonight.

Love to you all,

Roll

Rollmdl I haven't gone on my shopping spree yet in May. That is a weekend trip to Toronto about 4.5 hrs away. It is a beautiful area and lots of shops it should be a fun trip just the four girls. I also got invited yesterday to go to Saratoga Springs another nice area with horse racing at the end of July. I think I might try to go I have never been and always wanted to go. I better start saving. My hubby isn't into traveling so when I get the chance to go with others I try to do so. I need sometimes to be a bit selfish and do those things. He is really good about it and always tells me to go so I guess I am lucky there. Glad your doing well and I could do the water exercises too! I am going today to workout. Your dinner with friends sounded wonderful wish I was there to enjoy it.
Julie your doing well with the intakes and thanks for the info. on gr. tea. Is that all teas? Silly question but just wondered. I had some gr. tea last night . I read that it lowers your chol. and risk of cancer etc. It is really good for many things. I was in the mood for something hot and it hit the spot. I didn't make it to the gym yesterday but did do more walking throughout my day. Today I promised myself to get there. I had to go get new tires ordered for my car. Two for 199.00 wow! Who ever let me get those fancy type of tires to start with? Thinking I was going to be sporty I guess. Now I will pay the price. There is never a dull momment in any of our lives. But I guess as you know someone else always has something much worse so we must be grateful. You sure have had your share and hopefully things will be looking up for you! At least for your health you are taking the upper hand and controlling things. Good for YOU!
Judy and Tired where are you girls we miss hearing from you both! I that move it to lose it how true! It is like my don't be a slug! I read about adding grapefruit in our diets great benefits.
Intake: break= 1 whole wt. eng. muffin w/ jam 160 cal. , oatmeal w/ splenda, walnuts
snack= yogurt
lunch= 1% cottage cheese on a bed of lettuce w/ 1 tangerine cut into it.
soy chips 7 gr. protein 120 cal.
Snack= 1/2 grapefruit
Dinner? will decide later I have to get groceries!

Lightbulb Good Morning All

I'm feeling better today, thanks for your support. The dinner last night was fun and my friend and I had a good conversation about our lives etc... I didn't end up tracking my food yesterday.

Today

breakfast: whole grain bread with egg salad

lunch: hummus salad (going to a Mediterranean restaurant for lunch with a friend)

snack: orange

dinner: vegetable soup with a beef base

The horrible food I ate yesterday was girl scout cookies. Yuck. My friend is so supportive of her friends that when the kids sell cookies she buys them. I'm thinking she gave them to me to get rid of them.

I'm so spoiled by home cooking and baking. They tasted like sawdust with sugar but I ate SIX with warm milk before going to bed last night.

Think I was trying to comfort myself?

I got enough sleep last night and for that I am grateful. I'm not feeling as hopeless as I was a few days ago.

My dishwasher broke yesterday.

Maybe I'm just out of touch with reality.



Well, gotta go take my girl to her piano lesson.

Carol, what great motivation, having a shopping date planned for a specific time in the future!

Julie, move it to lose it, good idea. I'm going to the gym today while my daughter is at her swim practice.


Love to all,

Roll

GOOD MORNING ly ladies, glad to see you bounced back ROLL, your water aerobics sound good I would love to give that ago, but our pools in the country are only open in the summer months it was good when I was in the city they have heated pools there open all year round oh well I guess you trade one thing for another I opted for piece and quiet in asmall country town and that is better than the hussle and bussle of civilization any day I,m glad your daughter likes the ginger marmalade, her combo on lettuce leaves sounds yummy I,ll have to give it ago, I,m like you I prefer home cooked these days to bought , when you,ve learnt healthy substitutes making them yourself with low fat and cal ingredients others just lose something in the eating which is a plus if we don,t enjoy it we may be tempted if there is nothing else but more likely to give it a miss the next time, you are doing so well I wouldn,t let a few cookies worry you the same as I,m not going to let my littel slip of having a handful of chips yesterday bother me , my defence is hubby bought them home I love my chips and he is a real test for my will power, BUT IT FELT SO GOOD WHEN HE GAVE ME A CUDDLE AND TOLD ME HE COULD FEEL MY HIP BONES, I FORGOT I EVEN HAD THEM OR COLLAR BONES WHICH I AM NOW JUST STARTING TO SEE PEEP THROUGH your dinner sounded good with your friend a splurge now and then is good on ww there is no such thing as forbidden food everything is allowed just in moderation and somethings as treats now and then , CAROL you have so many things planned I think it is good to have a break from your other half now and then it helps them to appreciate you more when you get back even better when your hubby is with it, YES CAROL that means all teas herbal are best next to green tea but any tea can be considered part of your water intake as long as you leave out the sugar and milk bad luck about the tyres I know what you mean our car is do for rego and hubby has to get 2 new tyres they really can get up there in price, these days I think having a car comes under a luxury item something you only use when you have too HEY TIRED , JUDY HOPE YOUR WELL MISS YOU BOTH , WELL MY PLAN FOR THE DAY
BREKKI/ BOWL OF FRUITY BIX LIKE LITTLE WHEAT BIX, EARL GREY TEA
SNACK/ APPLE, GREEN TEA
LUNCH, YOU GAVE ME AN IDEA ROLL, I,M GOING TO HAVE A CURRIED EGG ON WHOLEMEAL TOAST, GREEN TEA

HI, everyone just a check in, more to offload rather, I,m feeling a bit blue at the moment just when I thought the last 16 months couldn,t get worse I was wrong they did hubby just came home and told me it looks like they are going to let him go from work, he hurt his back 2 weeks ago lifting a heavy lounge and after 8 months on the job they think he may not really be suited to the job after all, things just keep getting worse his ex wife is really screwing hin for every cent she can get , we are just paying our bills now with not much left over I don,t know how we,ll manage if they put him off, I,m worried we may have to sell our house just to get us out of debt, sorry to go on and be in such a downer, just really needed to vent I tried to ring my friend but she isn,t home, well take care, bye for now, JULIE

Sorry my message messed up. Anyways its surely not fair all that has been sent your way. But things always have a way of working out. That company where he hurt his back surely should be held responsible for his injury. Our laws here my be different than yours. I will surely be thinking of you. Give yourself a hug from me! You can unload anytime not a problem thats what friends are for. Support is a good thing and unloading always seems to help a bit. We should always feel that on this site we can do that when its needed!
As far as your chips go sometimes we just need to have a few. But look at it this way back a few months or so ago you might of ate a lot more at least I would have. You are in control of what goes in and how much! I have been trying to get in my tea, I enjoy having a good cup of tea at my break time.
Rollmdl I am glad your feeling better about things. We all go through rough times. We just got our Girl Scout cookies in 3 boxes only. My oldest daughter took home one box last night. I am glad as less for me to get into. So far I haven't opened them but thin mints are my all time favorite. Once I start its hard to stop! I wish I didn't like them. We pay 3.00 a box here how much are yours? I tried to get that ginger marmalade and can't find it here. I have a few more places to ck. out.
Guess I better start my day. I did work out last night after work. It was a good workout 1 hr. I was sure hungry afterwards. I read that when we build muscle that our calories we burn on a daily basis automatically increase. I still wish I had that pool you use. A friend of mine is starting to run the spin class a biking class. That usually bothers my leg. But he insists I must be having it on the wrong level? I will ck it out this week. Today is a long day for me as I have to do a late appt. so I think I may fit in a walk inbetween appts.
Intake; Breakfast= 1 wh.wt. english muffin 120 cal. jam 50 cal. 1/2 grapefruit 20 cal.
Snack= gr. tea yogurt 90 cal.
Lunch?
Have a great day! Yesterdays cals 1450!

HI,and thanks for the kind words CAROL, don,t have much to say I,m sort of off the planet at the moment, you girls must think I,m worse than a rerun of some sort of TV show, I wish I could just switch it off or change chanels, that would make life easier, hey maybe I was a SAINT in my past life and I,m paying penance for someone else in this life, yeah I know don,t roll your eyes its just a thought who knows , well bye for now, JULIE
