Good Morning!


weigh in 150.5


Breakfast
2 semisoft boiled eggs
1 slice pumpernickel bread toasted
2.8 oz orange
1 C black coffee




today is shopping day so the only thing I know for sure is there will be a salad and spinach as part of my dinner plan


had to cancel the work because of the rain electric workers don't work in the rain because of the danger of it ... and it is outside work


so he is coming first thing tomorrow that should not effect my walking


all I did for exercise yesterday was some floor exercises I do some times
and general household chores picked some green beans from the garden.

Morning Judy!
Sounds like you stayed busy yesterday. Still raining there? I remember when I lived back there and it rained for days on end. That don't happen here. I miss it.

Weigh In - 183

Brkfst the usual - 1 banana, 1 coffee

Lunch probably a BK Jr. Whopper. Those are pretty small. I should look up the calorie count on them.

My poor willow trees that I planted 10 years ago are dieing. Boo hoo, I cut a big bunch of dead branches out of them yesterday. I hate to see them die. We don't have all that many trees out here.

Good morning all!

Judy, I see that you're down in the 150's...congrats!!!

Aus, I'm so sorry about your willow trees. How sad to see those die!

It's moving day today. We aren't sleeping there for a couple of days since there won't be TV or internet and I can't without that

We're closing this morning, so I'm off! Have a great day everybody!

XOXO

The most exciting, challenging, significant relationship you have is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone who loves the you that YOU love, that's fabulous 297-6/6/14-CW 282 GW 165

HI everybody,


I had cereal and cherries for breakfast. I'm unsure what is for lunch. I think I will do my exercise video. I feel sluggish today so I will do the best I can.


Good luck with the move Janine. I hope everything goes smoothly for you.


Well I hope everybody has a good day!

Hey guys. Not much is going on with me. Thought I'd say something...it's been a few days since I posted.

My weight is still the same - but I'm starting to see some definition in my calves from the stairs that I do everyday at work. This week I'm doing three sets of six flights. Whew. I'm not as out of breath as I used to be - I can get up four or five flights without breathing too heavily. the last flight or two are always the hardest - but two weeks ago I was struggling with just four flights. NSV!

mog1026 replied to jis4judy's response:
I wish I could use the less expensive Costco ones but I have to have the NO SALT variety. Wonderful brand is the only one I have found. At our local market they're $12.99/lb and at Stop and Shop $8.99, so I was really happy to see the Christmas Tree Special for $5.99.

I'm still working on the rainbow. Today I had:

Orange - peach

Red - apple, tomato, red onion

Green - arugula, broccoli, scallion, cucumber, avocado

Yellow - corn

Blue - blueberries

White - dates

At least I have that part down. It's so much easier and more fun to add healthy foods than to cut portions, unfortunately.

Yes Kathy
it is more fun to add healthy foods than to cut portions
I am a foodie too I find myself eating too much healthy food every now and then
so portions do matter not as much though as other types of foods
I couldn't find the salt free pistachios so I bought a small packet of lightly salted normally 5.99 on sale for 3.99
