Well they have said that Dorian will go by our area tomorrow late afternoon. We are really tired of waiting for this one to make up his mind to go by our area. I am hoping that he speeds up so it will go by faster. We usually leave when one is coming, but we did not for this one. Found out there is another one sitting out there behind this one.

I've eliminated sugar from my diet and have gone vegetarian. I've lost and kept weight off so far this way, and it's not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. The sugar was harder to break away from than the meat. Sugar is convenient, after all. It's in everything. I have to actively try to get meat lol.

takes time to get the house on the market just make sure that you get a good Realtor or make sure that you look into getting a lawyer that does closings to help with selling your home. That is stressful too.

Clutter IS stressful! This is the first time I've lived in one place for more than a couple years (I used to rent and now live in a place I own) and moving was always the thing that made me filter my possessions and unload lots of them. I need to do more of that now.

In the meantime, I have firm plans to move after the end of this school year and before the start of the next. I am steadily plodding through getting my house on the market, completing the requirements for certification in a new state, and finding a new job. Slowly but surely.

When are you moving? I didn't know if you had a set date or a target date yet or not.

Hubby and I keep saying "we're moving". We're really not, but we said we want to be ready to actually move in a year, so if we decide we DO want to move, then we will actually be able to instead of it being such a nightmare. So we're trying to go through all our stuff and get rid of the things we don't need/want/like or that we just never got around to disposing of. I'm tired of the clutter, which adds to stress, which adds to my temptation to give in to emotional eating.

I bought the mixes for when my friends kids come over for the afternoon, as a fun activity that they enjoy doing. But I always send the goodies home with them. There are about 8 to 10 kids that take turns coming over, 2 or 3 at a time. The kids look forward to it and the parents look forward to having an afternoon free too.
Once the mixes are gone, I'll teach them how to make things from scratch instead, and not just treats.

For myself, I'm working on using up the food in my freezer - soup stocks, chicken, turkey, lean ground meats, beef - instead of buying more food if possible. Lots of ingredients for soup! I make my soups and stews from scratch, including the stock if possible, and it can take 2 to 3 days from start to finish. But they are hearty, filling, and not high in calories, fat, or sodium. And it usually makes a gallon or more, so I can make several and just freeze the extras and rotate them.

I run several online groups, as well as some teams here on SP, so I can't get away from it entirely. My biggest problem is surfing the web or facebook. I fought joining FB for a long time, but since my grown children and my family post on it, it's the best way to keep up with what is going on. I just have to keep telling myself I don't have to scroll through to read EVERYTHING that is new since the last time I checked. Better to just go to their pages and see what they posted there, as it's not going to also show me everything they also "liked", and will take less time.
I've resolved to get the junk food out of my house. The cake and cookie mixes won't be used until some of my friends kids come over for the afternoon, when we will have fun making and decorating them - and then they will be sent home with the kids! OR I will wait until I'm going somewhere and supposed to bring a dessert, and will make them then. Once they are gone, they are gone. If I want a dessert, I can make something healthier from scratch.

I also struggle with spending too much time on the computer. I have several things that I must do online on a regular basis, but often get distracted by other things and end up online much longer than intended.

I agree about the computer time. That's a real issue with me as well. Of course, when I go online to check my emails and teams, I then find myself checking out facebook and the latest news and just surfing, which are real time wasters for me too. Trying to limit the email lists I am on so I don't have to deal with as much.

I think I've got my microbiome on the mend (and I'm always happy when I can get my body to heal without visiting the doctor - funny for the daughter of a doctor just how much I distrust pharmaceutical solutions to anything)

I really struggle with the screen time thing. I feel like SparkPeople is a prime motivation for my healthy habits and I want to be connected daily with my various teams, but I also feel like it's my gateway drug to time wasted surfing. Really the issue is since I've lived alone I spend way too much time "socializing" online and I need a roommate!

I had surgery on the ankle because that is where the spurs are and he wants me to stay in the boot and not move the ankle too much so that I don't open the area up and let the ankle heal. I know a weird place to get bone spurs but that is where I always got them.

From what I've read, drinking lots of water usually doesn't do much for suppressing appetite. Your body recognizes the difference. The only way in which it DOES affect it is when the water is in food - such as in soups or in fruits and vegetables.

Whiteangel - I love oriental cooking. Sounds tasty.

more rest to get better

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Get better and get over this flare from my lupus. It is being real painful and aspirins just barely stop the pain. Can't take stuff like motrin because they cause me more pain just using them.

I do the same when cooking stews or pot pie filling or spaghetti sauce. I usually make a gallon of it and freeze the extras in quart containers to use at a later date. And I make a big batch of chicken enchiladas and freeze them as well.

Planning out our menus for the next week. We are eating from our freezer through Thanksgiving as we need to make room. When I make soups and stews I make enough to freezer for a future meal. I also make the chicken pot pie filling I make a double and freeze this ti take out thaw and add crust. All this cuts down on my kitchen time

Made my enchilada filling (having on Wednesday as today is leftover day) and cooked my chicken carcasses to make lots of stock! And planned menus for the week.
Got some yard work done - digging up sweet potatoes which counts as ST.
Tomorrow I'm making a lean beef roast with LOTS of veggies (reminder to self, go to store and pick up some carrots). Later in the week I will turn the leftovers into a hearty beef stew, loaded with veggies too (add peas and corn and potatoes to the shopping list for tomorrow too), as well as lentils and barley. Will make the stock for stew on Wednesday from soup bones I have in the freezer.

Yay for weekly menus. I'll be home most weekends this month (bummer) so I should be able to get back on top of my batch cooking.

My action today toward a healthier weight is to get the leftover halloween candy OUT of my house! Hubby does have some favorites that fortunately aren't mine, so I put the ones he wants in a bag and they are going on a shelf on his side of the closet. The rest of the candy from the open bags is going to a friend today (she gives it to kids at church). I'll save the unopened bags in the basement until she is ready for more in a few weeks, and then bring those to her. It's easier for me to resist it as long as the bag hasn't been opened, and since others are now also bringing her their leftover candy, she is going to be getting lots this week.

I've started making weekly menus again. I just have to figure out WHEN I am going to make WHAT this week, based on my babysitting schedule, and then check to see what I need to get at the store. Shopping is tomorrow.

walked my 14000 steps and cooked good food (gumbo and peach pie) and, this isn't really healthier weight, but it's healthier mentally, made progress toward selling my house.

Not eating much and put on chicken soup for tomorrow in the slow cooker so that I don't have to do much but recover from what ever I caught from my son. emoticon emoticon

Yes, sounds safe to me. I grew lots of celery this year so I can munch on that. I'll pass on the kale and beet tops though! You can have those.
