Wednesday Bedtime

Wednesday, July 30, 2014

Boy started out good, then later on just got down, then angry, then hubby, fool that men are, started with me. Well I didn't lose my temper, didn't yell, etc. did shut the f. window when he started yelling. Told him I could hear him yesterday when he was talking to his mother on the phone, don't need the neighbours listening to him yell at me. GO.... put in your own expletives.
Calmer now, he is fine, I am still angry but haven't eaten from it. Nearly left and went for a drive I was very angry. Oh well that's life. Another day after a good sleep. Have physio tomorrow, don't want to go, I am doing what they say and that is enough. I do no exercises there, just answer her questions and she isn't going to change anything tomorrow.

Oh well off to bed, and hope that I sleep............... night all.

MOnday eve

Monday, July 28, 2014

Well, day 19 and still doing NOS. no wt. loss since week one. Pretty sure the lax weekends are the cause, even though I didn't over do near as much as the last weekend. But am finding I don't care if I continue. I think I am wanting to feel better physically and yes internally of course and when I don't feel better I get the what the hay, why bother. Cos no I still don't enjoy eating healthy. The food does not taste so great... or give me a ohhhhhhhhhh this is so good feeling. Yes I am grown up, yes I should be able to say this is benefiting me healthwise, lessen my cancer risk, will lose wt eventually, I will have less risk for diabetes... etc. the nurse in me knows this but do you know how many obese nurses I have worked with?

So today went well, even though I am writing this. I just am writing my feelings I guess as I ate healthy, less, so good portions and yet I feel like stopping. Hmmm what is up. Not blah, not upset or frustrated with hubby, yes pain but not excrutiating other than the odd spasms in my mid back, but just don't care. As I wrote that I thought YES YOU DO, really as I was typing it I thought that is a lie, you do care, you know you don't feel good in your clothes, you don't want the fear of cancer knowing you could have at least helped have less chance, you know that you want to recover easier from surgery, you know that you want to feel pretty, sexy and be able to move more, walk faster, etc. So YES I do Care.

I will do this yet another day and as I said at the beginning, I am hoping that by day 100 I will have it down better and be more able to eat the right portions and have the odd sweet snack however they will b e home made as we don't buy processed. other than chips as hubby wants them sometimes.

HUGS and thanks for reading my thoughts LOL emoticon emoticon

As my very first spark motivator told me...
"What can I do today to make my tomorrow a better one?" BEMORESTUBBORN

Right now I can have a big drink of water, go brush my teeth and get ready for bed, read, relax and know that I can do this again tomorrow!!! tomorrow I already have plans for a great coleslaw salad mix with a healthy addition of seeds and raisins and a healthy dressing.

Night all, thanks to ONEKIDSMOM for motivating me this eve too.

Gotta love your spark buddies, cos there is always someone here for you!

    I love a lot of healthy foods but unfortunately I'm still attracted to some unhealthy foods too, like pizza. I love pizza. I also love chips. And crackers. And M&Ms. And ice cream. And biscuits. I think I better stop now. LOL.

    I am thinking that maybe Monday is harder for you because you are coming off whatever not-so-healthy food you ate in the weekend. So hopefully today you'll feel better and more optimistic.
That's always been my reason not to try No S, I don't think I could deal with eating healthy during the week and then not-very-healthy in the weekends. I've recently reread Eat to Live and another book by Dr. Fuhrman... it seems to me he does have a point that we will begin to like healhty foods better if we eat nothing but those foods. I know that for me it'd be hard to have very sweet or salty fatty foods now and then and then go back to not having them for days. I'd fear to get hooked over and over. But, I know that I'm an all or nothing type of person.... And I know that for some people No S has been a blessing.

    You my lovely friend are doing so well .. No S .. Well done! .. Every day is a challenge to us all or we would not be here on Sparks ..
We all have the same issues,you are never alone ..
I am lucky as I love the fresh fruit and vegetables .. My down fall is I eat to much ! .
I need to downsize my portions ..
We all know what we should do's really not that hard ..
Unfortunately we also need the right mindset to start and keep going ..
You have made a very important decision ..
No Sugar is so important and eventually you will find you crave sweet foods less .. emoticon emoticon emoticon
Love you xxxSusie xxx.

    To tell you the truth, I don't care that much for healthy food all the time either. It's like we're all in the same boat!! So we try to eat in moderation to get the weight off. I try every day, but don't always make it. We are human afterall! Yes, we love our SP friends and for me, that includes you too! Have a great week ahead. Hugs to you, Karen emoticon

What a fantastic day yesterday, today will be great too.

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Yesterday was our 37th wedding anniversary. Hubby surprised me as he wouldn't say where we were going. Ended up going to the Eastern shore, ( most tourists do the valley or south shore). We hadn't gone very far that way so was a new adventure for us both. He also stopped at Liscombe lodge for lunch! wow posh for us.... but not everyday you have your 37th anniversary and the past 2 years have been super hard for us. We sat and had lunch and watched the birds, the kyakers on the river and then we walked around the grounds for a bit.
Came home and we were full so had leftovers for supper. Only thing I had not on plan was a tiny pc of fudge. So that is a great day for my eating too.

Today it is sunny and hot, have a set of sheets out on the line and not sure what else we will do. Maybe, hopefully hubby will get organized to do the fence repairs. The guy that said he would be around to do the roof repairs hasn't shown so will call again on tues. give him a day... We have to start finding quotes to get the driveway paved where we made it wider. Now that the backpay is in the bank, we will get the 3 major things done and rest gets saved till all the laywer stuff is done, then we will put it into savings and get the littler things done.

Okay off to do a bit as this was long enough to sit. still have to sit, work, rest, walk, and repeat! LOL

Oh just an update day day 17 today of NO S and not losing as well, but still am losing and doing well with eating healthier. Very little sugar even on S days now. A bad weekend last weekend re amounts of NO S but by sunday afternoon was ready to stop. Great week and plan to make this weekend a great one. Going to choose 1 S thing if I want it and that's it. no more overboard cos it is a free day.

HUGS all....... and watching Chris Powell extreme wt loss last eve was great motivation.

Day 9 of 100 and not daunted!

Friday, July 18, 2014

Good sunny humid morning spark buddies! After 4 days of fog, damp and drizzle, nice to see the sun and it is to stick around! Good weekend.

Oddly enough, dh doesn't want to go to the trailer again this weekend!!?? He said he has his momentum going to getting stuff done and doesn't want to go. OKay just so strange but fine by me if he works on the back yard awesome. Also I was walking the dog and a truck stopped to answer his phone and when he was finished I asked see that house, has 2 shingles missing. How much do you charge to do a patch job, he said if you remind me and you have the shingles, I will send someone around and hmm you could pay him 100$ will send him on way home. I said okay that is super is he still insured if he falls. Yes. Okay we will find the shingles and call you. He gave me his card and I will save it to give to ds who needs roof repairs too.

So Sunday, is my nieces wedding shower, she is in Colorado but her mum is doing one here, via Skype. Sort of weird and only money gifts as she has to take them all down to her for the wedding. Since none of hubby's side is going, and we are close to that sil and niece, I am going to go and perhaps my dd. So it is near the trailer so we will go up, pay the hydro bill, and get my hair dryer from the trailer and whatever else we want in case we don't go. Okay. I figured we would go all next week as it is our 37th wedding anniversary and he would enjoy a full 5 days or so. I know dad is okay and dd checks him daily x2 when we aren't here. Oh well will see. perhaps we will go on a day trip. Whatever, no worries.

Food wise been doing great. I have only had one hungry day and now perhaps I was just hungry. But I got by without eating any snacks just had my water and tea. We are going out with dad for lunch. Fish and chips. only thing on the menu as it is the legion he supports. He isn't eating much lately, and wants to go so we go. He wont go alone. But I get one pc and don't eat all the fries. I will have a salad and protein of some kind for supper. All is well.

Allie is still doing well, hoping it continues as been reading and most dogs have to keep going up on the pills, after a while and gets to be way too many pills. Also some get a GI bleed from them. So hope this works. I hate to see her get sick and need GI surgery or have to take her to the vet school in PEI that is $$$$$ and a trip involved. OH well thinking the best just learning signs and symptoms to make sure we see it early if anything starts.

Okay enough chat, going to tidy dads area a bit. And then do my stretches and such. Got the curtains sewed and hung and 2 pr of jeans hemmed and mine taken in at the waist! I was busy yesterday, perhaps that is why I wasn't hungry! LOL Getting hubby to put my sewing machine away, think I am finished and I cant lift it anymore.

HUGS and have a super day. NO matter the weather but will say hope all the sparkers out west are safe from the numerous forest fires.

Day 7 persevered through yesterday

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Morning all, Super humid and starting to rain. Fine if the humidity would lift a bit. whew. My back sure isn't liking this but at least I can still walk better than last week.
Yesterday was a tougher day food wise. I did great, didn't step off the line but sure did waver. I was hungry then later in day I was again. I reviewed what I ate, and not sure why. I had protein at all meals and thought I had enough. So going to make a better breakfast this am, and then maybe at lunch add in some yogurt and berries. Will tweak it and see, but the best is I didn't stop and eat or mindless reach for anything.

Have to get a few things done today and out for allies pills and a few groceries for us. I need a run to the veggie store and the meat store too. Not the regular processed grocery store lol

Just got a call, spark friend is coming for visit after her dr appointment! That will be nice and can see first hand how she is doing as she fell recently.

Okay off to make breakfast and tidy up. Take care HUGS all
