8/23/14 Saturday

Up & down eating Day. Actually,
Terrible!

But it's over, on to better days to come.
I keep saying that & it will happen.

I hope you've had a good weekend. My
exercise is less than normal today. I am
usually pretty good with that.

Church services tonight were AWESOME!

My grandson is preaching at his church tomorrow
night so I will be going to that.

He will attend Pensacola Christian College in
September and wants to go into the Lord's Work!

This will be his 2nd time preaching, so I think he'll
be less nervous this time.

Have a great weekend!

    I slipped a bit on Saturday - we ordered in Chinese, a favorite of mine that we don't get too often. However - today is a new day, a new opportunity!

8/18/14 weather changes

Look at earlier this afternoon:









In Florida, if you don't like the weather one minute, wait, it will
change shortly.

Never really got much but some light rain & lots of thunder.

    Wow - looked very threatening. I am glad you didn't get too much rain, wind or damage from the storms.

    Those are some dark skies! Hope it's clearing up for you! Connecticut has plenty of blue skies this week, but temps have been consistently under 80║--where is my summer???

    That is one good thing about Florida. You can usually see the storms coming and they usually come at the same time every day and it pours and it's over.

8/17/14 Time Slips Away

Sunday, August 17, 2014

8/17/14 Time Slips Away

well, it's been a few days since I wrote an
update.

I gained a pound at TOPS this week. I'm going
in the wrong direction, but about to change that.
Have had a really good week, keeping my calories
lower and happy with that. Should be a loss this
week.

I made some split pea soup.
Olive Oil; dry split peas; onion; garlic; smoked pork
neck bones. Not a lot of meat, just great flavor.
Pick small amounts of meat off bones after cooked.
I use the mixer to puree the soup. Also added chicken
stock to cook it with.



You can see the little bits of meat in the pot. Just enough to know
it's there, but not a lot to chew on. It tasted so good the sample, can't
wait till tomorrow to have a bowl of it.

Got in
57.90 miles walking this month
and 123992 steps.

I'm pleased with that. Want to make 100 miles
but not sure I will. But, I'll work towards that.

Got about 6 things to send out for Ebay tomorrow.
I'm please with that, for sure.

Hope you all had a great weekend. Looking forward
to an even better Week ahead!

    Soup is a good appetite controller, so I'm sure you will turn things around Nancy. Never give up! We WILL get there!

    I'm trying to do better too. It would help if i could keep my stress in check but it's hard for me.

I have not had split pea soup in a long time. Looks good!

    Looks sooo great but I like lots of meat in my soups, otherwise the Nutrition Tracker Daily Report puts me as protein short--complain, complain, that thing is so hard to please!

    That soup looks delicious. I hope that you enjoy it. Good luck with turning the scale around. I had a 2 pound gain this week so I am joining you on a harder fight to move the scale in the RIGHT direction. GO US!!!!

Monday 8/11/14 In the Middle

Monday, August 11, 2014

Monday 8/11/14

Not the best week on record, but not the worse either,
so I guess I'm in the middle of the road. Hope to not get
run over....

Up & down food wise.
Exercise is good.

Let's turn this around and go in the "right" direction!

SATURDAY 8/9/14 THANK YOU

Saturday, August 09, 2014

SATURDAY 8/9/14 THANK YOU

Today was a great day! Had a really nice long
leisurely breakfast, just my daughter & me.
SHe has 4 kids, from 7 - 19 so it's hard to get
time alone with her. So that was good.

Made her a nice card, told her how I am so proud
of the Woman she has become.

I got together a pkg of Her baby album I kept,
notes from doctors, weight when born, time when
born, stuff like the. Gave her photos of a dear friend
who passed away from a bad heart @ age 16. I named
my daughter Alice after her. Gave her information and
pics of the girl etc.

My daughters school pics from kindergarten thru HS &
her prom pics and girlfriends etc.

It was a fun morning. Then we went to Target, she had
to buy presents for a baby shower she was going to
at 11AM. We finished in time and it was fun.

Laid my glasses down in Target, getting my points and
totally forgot where I laid them. Prescription sun glasses
no less. Went to front desk left name & number. Then looked
around retracing my steps. Nothing.

Left the store, had regular glasses in car. Drove out of the parking
lot, turned around and went back in . Sat in the car a while
retracing my steps. I know exactly where I had been from my
phone as I get points for scanning things. The one place I didn't
look was at the soup aisle. Sure enough, there they were.

I'm so glad I found them. I already lost a pair of glasses this year
and have never found them...I need them to drive & for distance
it's on my license. Fortunately I had an old pair.

WOW, this is a novel.

Ate way too much for Breakfast, had one other slip during the day
and that was it. Calories under 2000 for the day, so that's pretty good.
Back on, parties over.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Keep Sparking.

Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog. I read all the
comments from yesterday, I just can't answer them all individually,
but I always read the comments.

Love you all.
