Wonderful Pam and Laura!

I am slowly weaning myself from artificial sweeteners in my coffee! It will be a slow process but I did it from caffeine and I can do this... Artificial sweeteners are an addiction!

But, it will be worth it, and I will be healthier for it...

emoticon Laura!! I got in my total body toning, 5 freggies (would have gotten more if I hadn't forgotten my smoothie for work!). several cups of water, tracked nutrition and stayed in my ranges, and yogurt parfait sweetened with stevia for a dessert with no sugar or artificial anything! Oh, I forgot to say that I am reading the bible through in one year, so am really enjoying my bible and prayer time!

speaking of moving - - - I just read a good SP article here:

www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness
_a
rticles.asp?id=2069


When there's simply no time to make it to the gym...and everyone needs you , how do you carve out fitness? Well.....SP offers great ideas! My favs include jogging or walking with a friend instead of meeting at a restaurant.....or aerobics while watching a film....and using a long phone call to sneakin fitness by switching on the speaker phone.LOL! emoticon So very clever!

Phyllis - Your pea soup sounds good.

Barbara - I was so tempted to take my DD out for ice cream last night... then we both decided to have yogurt and fruit instead. emoticon
Sweets in moderation!

In a lot of Sparks articles they recommend eating 'soup' first to fill up more....

Plus with my dental issues lately I have been making soups.... we had pea soup for supper last night.... yum! I chopped up the ham real small in my 'Ninja' so it wasn't a problem with my cavity and I didn't chew much.

It filled me up but the calories unfortunately in pea soup are high! emoticon

I love that, and you eat slower when you eat soup...I do anyway, and what a great one to make!! YUM!!

I had a couple of Christmas cookies today, but only two, and I feel good about that...they were peanut butter ones, and little ones at that, but back in the day, I would have at least had 5 or 6!! It felt good to eat only two!!

Things like that teaches people how to save and learn to be thrifty and debt free.
I am so grateful to my hubby and that he serves our Lord. He has learned the hard way to be debt free. And so have I and we are both debt free. It is good because now we have been able to save for the necessary things like dental.

God does not want us to owe, owe, owe others! HE is against it! Plus it makes your life miserable. That was a challenge for us, but my hubby and myself we worked really hard at it and we managed to pay off debts several times over!

One can achieve it if you really try! RICE AND BEANS, is how you do it if necessary! Lots of protein and carbs! hahaha! Celery is cheap too!

Thank you Barbara, not sure 'bestest' is a proper word, but I like it!!! haha.

I will ask our dentist office about it, I have been with them a long time and it has only been this past year that we are w/o insurance.... (thank you very much medicare) we were dropped like a rock from our dental plan once we were FORCED to go on Medicare!!!!

We didn't want medicare-- but you HAVE to take it! We were very Happy with our Insurance plans!

Oh well, that is Government forcing themselves upon you..... Lord come soon!!! We have to save up each time we need to go to the dentist, so I will ask about whether they have some type of insurance through them,

Thanks for the advise!

I pray you are soon well! If you have a regular dentist, maybe he can help out with your finances and give you a discount. We have our insurance through our dentist...as we don't have insurance either. We've been going to him for 18 years, and are established there, so he and his son, whose a dentist have been good to us over the years! Wishing you ONLY the bestest!!

Barbara, Laura, you two gals are the best with the bestest attitude!!!
I can't wait to get my knees back and my health back! Right now I just want to stop coughing and be well enough to speak a full sentence w/o coughing! And then maybe I can rest up enough to start exercising again! Made it home from the Drs today with meds to start taking for bronchitis ...... more money $ .....

Plus I am now having dental issues and have been living on puddings and scrambled eggs for 1 week till I can afford a dentist. (no dental ins here)

Sooooooooooooooo---- I will try mashed sweet potato tomorrow and mashed other veggies!
Can't handle pureed meats, no no no!

I should loose some weight soon!!! The hard way...

You know, gals, we're only human, but I am really revved to do my very best, and it starts in my mind...for me...it's that attitude and getting out the negative words, thoughts, even people that want to sabotage us! Every STEP we take and writing it down gives us momentum to keep moving toward that goal of better health! I'm looking ahead to mid June when my new grandson will enter this world, and I want to be the bestest grandma to be able to do all I can to be there for my daughter and her hubby, to help out, and I can only do that if I'm healthier than what I am right now! Visualization is a big key for me! emoticon

I did so well yesterday until we went out after mass last night and succumbed to the beer cheese soup, but I did have a side salad with that! I'll do better today! It was just so yummy, and I never would fix something like that at home!!

Oh my... I am too sick to even care about what I eat this week! I am surviving on soup mostly and it is so salty. I am now making mostly my own soup but I feel so sick to even clean up! Hubby is not the greatest in my kitchen( I don't allow him, cause he ruins my pots!!!!). And he hates to clean up.

So tonight it is Marie Calendar's 'pots pies', hahahaaa! And they are only "800" calories each!!!!!!!!!!!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon Yikes!!!!! (I am not eating one) Or maybe half!

Goals for 2016

Continue my T&T workouts (Total Temple Workout) even though we are and will be on the road for the next 6 months. (This T&T include Spiritual workout/devo's, prayer and worship time/playing guitar

I have signed up for the 2016 miles in 2016 virtual challenge so that means a lot of Power walking and running (average 5.5 miles a day)

Continue tracking my food and focus more on eating foods that fuel my body and not the ones that have empty calories.
