That terrible moment I knew......

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

That moment we all have probably experienced. I knew I had put off weighing in because of careless eating habits creeping in.
Hubs and I were sitting at the dinner table and he randomly said, "hey, where are the scales?" Instant panic. I didn't know for sure. I knew if I admitted (out loud) that I had no real idea it would be admitting I have not been weighing regularly.
I quickly said up stairs in the bath room (the old one was there for sure) He said, "Ya, but the batteries are dead in it. Where are the new ones? The ones you use?" panic. stay calm. Give it your best guess. "Oh, those ones, they are under the desk in the kitchen." (That was the last place I recall seeing them) I tried to be casual and finish eating and then quickly sped to the place I last saw them and WHEW! Sure enough they were there! Dodged that bullet! So that gave me a wake up call that it was time to hold myself accountable again.
Picked some apple in the back yard and made some fried apples using just water. No butter or fat. They turned out beautiful!


Now go, eat healthy. Hold YOU accountable!

    I was feeling the same way last week. Luckily I hadn't gained. and that was lucky.
The apples look so good. Your garden is good this year!

    I need to face the scale soon; just can't do it yet. Your blog makes me realize this is only postponing what I need to do. Good job on the fake out; glad it worked out! lol

    It's so easy to ignore that scale...to go back to old ways. Way to get back on track ;) You can do it.

  Hey Kim,

Good blog....I let myself slide for over a month, and am now back in the
groove.

My daughter, wants to wear my clothes, since I now weigh less than she,
but I am hoping since she is now working a 2nd shift instead of midnights,
her health and weight will improve...she is also facing back surgery in Aug.
due to a fall in the kitchen at work.

Just as a matter of curiousity, how much more are you wanting to lose??
Blessings,
DarleneK

    We have all been there! I'm glad you were able to fake hubby out for now... but I think more importantly that shows that YOU want to get back on track for YOU. If you didn't care you simply would have said "I'm not sure, I'm not worried about the scale right now", but you are worried about it and you care about losing weight. I know you can turn it around. emoticon

    Yes I had to do the same the other day. Hadn't weighed myself in about 8 months or so and I knew my clothes were getting a little tighter. Got on the scale and low and behold I gained 15 pounds. Yikes!!!!

I have yet to get back on track.

Hope you do better than I did...lol

    Interesting; I have a killer (unhealthy) recipe for little smokies wrapped in bacon and drenched in brown sugar as an appetizer. I love this healthy option!

    Have fun making salsa, it's a lot of work but great to have around! I hope to can some stewed tomatoes this year to use in recipes all year. We have plenty of salsa still from last year and green salsa too as we ran out of sun at the end. Apple butter is to die for! Happy canning! I love canning, it's so rewarding! What a great deal on the jars, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

headed for Malibu

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

well not me but my son is. My daughter had this stuffed animal in the car when we were dropping him off at the airport and I told him to hold it while I took his pic! lol!!!! I said "All ready to go!"
he was a bit nervous traveling because he was going solo and changing planes in Denver. So any Denver friends out there, stop by the airport and look for my lost son! lol
Have a great night all!
