I never try to figure out the calories in anything. I'd go crazy if I did. I stick to controlling carbs, and I don't even count them.

I just know that I cut out ALL bread, past, wheat, potatoes, etc. Meaning I don't eat starch. But all my carbs come from fruit, nuts and veggies, of which I eat a large amount. I cut out nuts recently, just to take less carbs per day because I'm not losing as much as I did before.

I've been cheating with tiny bits of what my husband is having but I've just stopped that and started eating the 1 carb chocolate pieces from Costco as my cheat snack.

Yes, they come in many sizes and flavors. I Larry would probably try many of them. I stick to the "plain", as always. Although at this point I probably could have something with taste because I wouldn't taste it anyway!

Obviously, in that last entry the chicken schwarma was had that night. (We never eat lunch - sometimes we'll just grab a slice of turkey or a handful of lo-carb grains )

Those lo-carb wraps are fantastic. The brand we use is Mission, and I think there' 2 or 3 carbs in a 10 or 12 inch wrap. We keep in in the fridge, and Larry just puts it in a frying pan for a minute to make it soft. They have it in smaller sizes, too. and I think they have it in flavors,, also.

I looked at a picture of myself at my grandson's Bar Mitzvah in 2018 and immediately went on a lo-carb diet. I cut out everything but fruit and veggies. I lost 75 lobs, but unfortunately the Pandemic has put back 20 of them. Larry has kept all of his 50 lbs. lost off.

We went to friends for an Easter Dinner/Passover final meal on Sunday and had lamb. Monday we had a BLT on lo-carb wrap for breakfast. (My favorite, and I had gone without it for 8 days!) and Chicken Schwarma in another lo-carb wrap. I have it with just the veggies, Larry has it with Hummus, too.

Just an FYI on the subject of veggies. I'm wondering if you have tried roasting for cooking them up? I have yet to try one a veggie I don't like if it has been roasted!

For Easter dinner, we had roasted broccoli & sweet potatoes w/ an onion. (DIL asked for the recipe since it had the "perfect" blend of spices!) + I found a delicious, easy recipe for scalloped potatoes in the crock pot. (not particularly "healthy" but not too bad, unless one is skipping potatoes all around).

Yes. I struggle w/ a sweet tooth. -- DH has dropped 25 lbs over the past year, while I ADDED 10#'s to my all-time "high". He has been dealing w/ pain & depression and pretty much cut out all sweets and snacks.

I know a LOT of my "battle" is in my head. The past year, since I lost my job due to covid lockdowns, has been a huge struggle for me. I need to find my "purpose" to get up every day.

I will say, that after having a good long sleep last night, my overall outlook for today is improved. But I need a month-long improvement in "outlook" to try to take my run-away personal train and get it on the right/healthy track!

We have a family wedding the first part of August. I would really like to look good in a nice dress for that occasion...as mother of the groom.

Yes, I LOVE veggies. when I was a kid, we ate from cans: peas, carrots, corn, green beans. My mother worked, came home and had dinner on the table immediately. The only fresh vegetables I ever had was cauliflower and broccoli. My husband won't use anything but fresh, so I miss the peas. (The corn is carb so I don't have that anyway.)But his veggies are always better than my mms anyway!.

Larry is pretty good at making sure I have enough veggies to substitute for whatever he's adding to his meals. I just don't understand how he loses weight with all he eats and I gain while I limit what I eat.

As we watch TV I have fruit and nuts, he has the same and adds candy to his!. But he gives me ice cream that is very low carb and I only get about 2 TBS a day! But I'm able to refuse all the extra things during the day knowing that the ice cream is waiting for the last thing I have before going to bed. Not what you're supposed to do, but it keeps me away from everything else during the day!.

I'm always fighting with trying not to eat what Larry is eating. He's great at making sure I have enough of what I need to eat, but he's still eating everything, and he's losing weight, but I'm not. I can't figure out how he's doing that.

Spent time on Saturday mowing the lawn, cleaning up fallen branches, and some general weeding and sprucing up.

Finished another quilt top today, bringing my total for donation to 27 this year! Time to set this aside for other things that NEED doing!

Trying to figure out what all to fix for family gathering next weekend. Thinking of having each person bring something to contribute so the whole thing isn't on me.

Definitely need to do some cleaning & "sprucing" up INSIDE. Dust bunnies & spider webs in corners need to GO. Scrubbing would be useful in several locations!

Part of me wants to fast for the week. The other part still wants food...more than I need. Sigh!

Thanks for the support. It's hard to do this so long distance. Especially since the son is non-verbal, and the daughter is trying to pull herself together and I've never even met her other than a What's App meeting once.

Being retired is the best thig that's ever happened to us. But I do miss seeing friends from NY and family from all over!

Sorry to say she didn't make it. She passed almost immediately after I posted that last entry. I've been joining Services at the Synagogue I used to work (in NY) to say Kaddish (the mourning prayer) because she has no one else who will.

She has an ex who won't, a son who can't (epileptic and non-verbal) and a daughter who was so turned away from Judaism because of her father when she was forced to go to a Jewish Day School when she lived with him before the divorce. So I'm saying the prayers as she was as close to me as my sister. And the prayers are said for an immediate relative. (Parent, child, sibling, or spouse. So I'm saying them for her. I'll keep in touch with her daughter and hope to see her when I get up to NY in May. (If my grandson's Bar Mitzvah is not zoomed)

Thanks for the support. It really helps to "vent" here. I don't have anywhere else these days. I've been "going" to Services more often (through zoom of course) just so I can have her name included when they say the prayer for the sick. It's the only thing I can do for her from here.

Her daughter took a medical emergency leave from work so she can spend much of her time with her (and take care of her brother who is being left alone all day with no means of communicating with the outside world.) I will probably be going up in May (hopefully for my grandson's Bar Mitzvah.) I hope she lasts until then.

Thanks for the support. So far, they're not sure what's going on in her brain Hopefully, it won't be cancer. If it's anything else, I think she could shake it!

My husband is on a cleaning binge also. It's driving me crazy. He keeps interrupting me to "sort" the things he already sorted before he throws everything out! He goes out early in the morning and does things around the lawn before it gets hot here. (It's going to cool down again for a few more days before going past the really cold days again. He's trimmed most of the larger trees down to a reasonable size. They're starting to bloom already and they sure look a lot better than when they town over us!

Wish I could say we're having visitors, but nothing's happening here until probably after May or June. Then it's going to hit the fan. I think they're all planning to come in from Israel, at the rate of 2 families a month first, then some of the older kids (ages 15-23) by themselves until after the summer. Each one for a week, with a week's break in-between. Fortunately, the younger ones can't come without their parents! (And their parents don't want to come with them!)

Two and a half hours later and the lawn IS mowed + several wheelbarrows full of dug out briars. I so wanted to get to that before they put out their runners and took root all over the flower beds. Now I have scratched up ankles. At least I kept on a long sleeve top so my arms didn't get all scratched up!

Trying to keep my mind on good things. My fried ended up going to the hospital on her birthday (last Sunday) and is still there. Looks like she won't be getting out for a while. They're till trying to see "what is dripping into her brain" and whether it's cancer or not. (She has it in other parts of her body.)

I'm sure I would love the bike if I could get it to work properly. The last time I got on it did a quick start, which should just go on keeping track, it re-set itself after a while TWICE, so I had no idea how long I actually rode. I didn't notice that it had stopped the first time, so I have no idea how long I was peddling .

Had our 2nd shot last week. I've been tired since then. No side effects to note, but I can't get myself up off the couch! Glad I'm not committed to going anywhere these days, but it would be nice if we COULD!

Today was the 55th anniversary of the day my best friend gave Larry my phone number! I called her today to thank her again. I always do that, especially since it's her birthday.

Wish we could find a decent stationary bike without breaking the bank. Now that people are more often stuck at home instead of access to a gym, all manner of exercise equipment is difficult to find "used"... and the nicer new ones are outside our budget.

Did manage to push myself out the door for a walk. Sometimes I just have to "Do It" and not think about it. -- Today was walk #7 in 8 days. I'll take that for a good start to the month!

I have a job interview on Tues. for a part-time job. We'll see what comes of it. Seemed like a pleasant person to work for--the Hiring Mgr. I was able to speak with on the phone.

Just won't come close to making what I used to make before the layoff last March.

DD's birthday is coming up. Need to get some things together for that "event". (It was the last time the whole family got together in a restaurant... The weekend the world "shut down".) -- It was tough on her because she had great plans for turning 21. (She would definitely like a "do-over'!)

Didn't have PT, and didn't even do my "homework". I'll do it over the weekend, hopefully both days, and maybe even Monday, too PT is Tues & Thurs until late March.

Maybe I'll get on my stationary bike for a bit. I did 10 min. yesterday and went for 1/2 mile.

I think having adequate information is KEY to making personal choices for health. -- Just in case you think the EXPERIMENTAL covid mRNA is "just another flu shot'... think again.

These vaccines are "approved for emergency use"... but they have failed to do due diligence in proving just exactly WHAT the LONG TERM effects of this is going to be/have on all of us.

Currently, over 900 deaths and more than 11K in adverse events (including anaphylactic shock) have been reported by the end of January 2021. -- And there is NO recourse for any injury from the vaccine. Auto-immune conditions are a big concern for me!

Be wise. Do your research. Don't just line up without knowing what you are agreeing to have put into your body.

On Sunday, we celebrated the birthday of soon-to-be DIL. We enjoyed a meal together. The crazy is that we were so full, that none of us had room for dessert.

I did spend a LOT of time traveling from home to pt.A to pt.B to pt.C... then back to pt.B...and then back home. Then to a met-up to pick up the cell phone I forget on the side table at location 50 min away (less than 1/2 way). Then to a friend's place to deliver quilt tops. Then...finally... home to stay! -- Left at 9:40 am. "Done" for the day about 8:30 pm. Whew!!

Always nice to enjoy celebrations with family!

And time visiting with my friend... We are two that see eye-to-eye on a whole lot of topics, issues, perspectives. This includes the FACT that NEITHER of us wear a mask anywhere we go. It is absolutely HARMFUL to our immune system and to our overall health. And, of course, the virus IS smaller than a mask! ~ We hug anyone that needs one!

I never thought I would like a massage, but my PT did a small bit at the back, and what a difference it made. Larry has learned how to do it, and now can get at that pain when it comes. It's not a permanent solution, but WOW, instant relief.

I don't need a timer to remind me to stretch, I have to get up that often to pee anyway!.

As far as taxes, we've used the same accountant firm since we moved here. We keep saying now that taxes have become slightly easier we should be able to do it, but we still have 2 states to worry about. Larry's pension from NYS is taxable in NC, but not any of our other income, so it's worth it to us to just give them all our year end paperwork and let them figure it out. Some of our earnings are not taxable, some are, so we let them untangle it!

I think the last of the frigid air is gone. It was beautiful when it was here, but we could do without the ice. We had one tree that was so laden it bent down to meet our fence. I'm not sure I'll be going to PT today. It depends on whether or not the roads are clear.

Stay safe everyone wherever you are. and wear a mask whenever you go out!

I had a therapeutic massage today. It reminded me that this older body needs to be better taken care of... I get a lot of tightness and out-of-balance issues. Hips. Knees. Shoulders. Ankles/feet.
Hmm...mmm... sounds like a kid's song, eh?!

I was talking to my 99 yr old friend on Wed. as we sewed together. She had just had a knee as well as a finger injection. -- I was saying that I need to set a timer to get up every hour to move & stretch and not let the body just sit.

Time to start looking at taxes. Sigh...... Last year, for the first time, we did them ourselves. My DH always thought the small farm business had to have an accountant. But then our accountant retired & handed us over to a different accountant. We tried them for several years, but it was completely impersonal and then they built a new building and jacked up their rates something fierce. I said NO WAY. So the actual cost for me to do them, was one-quarter of what they had charged the previous year.

Been busy doing exercising for my PT. Exhausting! But I saw the recipe for Spaghetti squash casserole you listed and I'm going to try to have Larry make it. It looks like one of those dishes he can make in a large quantity and then freeze in meal size portions for no-cook meals at a later date

(I may not do the cooking, but I'm always on the lookout for things I eat that look easy for him to do!)

I've been working on sewing together flannel blocks for quilt tops for kids. Looks like I might be able to finish 9 for this month. -- Our quilting group is starting to get together again. So, I bring my quilt tops with backs & they add the batting. Then they tie the blocks & someone sews the edges all around.

Tues. was the first day I got out for an hour or so. We had about 7 inches of snow. DD had almost 1 1/2 feet. She was unable to get out for work on the weekend. The snow was higher than the underside of her car, and she had no way to get out to the main road (1/2 mi away). No bus service in rural locations.

Thankful for plenty of wood for the wood stove to keep it burning and warm the house.

Day before yesterday, I made an old-fashioned casserole with spaghetti squash. It turned out pretty decently! I think it is a do-again!

Got a good night's sleep (7 hours, but longer stretches in between less wake-up times). Waiting for Larry to wake up, and will have a PT in the AM, and then a knitting ZOOM in the afternoon. The weather has finally gone above freezing overnight for the first time in a few days. At least things seem to be going in the right direction!

Looks like it's going to "warm up" today to the high 40's and maybe even the 50's, and be like that for at least a few days. Unfortunately, it will sprinkle through most of it, but it's better than snow. I'm still not going anywhere though, and not just because of the weather. With the virus now mutating like crazy, I'm avoiding the world, even with double masks!

I think there are people that are "fiber" people...and others that are "cloth" people.

For awhile, I joined a knitting group to be able to socially interact w/ some ladies I had worked with for a couple of years. -- They would talk about how the fiber feels, etc. (Never did a thing for me!)
But, I have a couple of friends & we know exactly what each other mean when we talk about having certain fabrics "speak to us" and determine just what we will create with what we have! I LOVE seeing the finished product as well as the creative "juices" that get stirred up to create a one-of-a-kind work of art/heart!

Getting ready for a trip to the coast Friday...into next week. Looking forward to a good dose of Vitamin Sea. ~ Hopefully there will be opportunity for multiple walks on the beach/in the sand! Weather is supposed to be somewhat stormy & rainy.

I don't know if there will be wi-fi, so may not post until a week from now...

It's ironic. When we were in NY, Larry was always warm, I was always cold and wearing double layers. When we moved here, I was fine, he got cold in the winter. Now, even in the house, I'm able to cope with the cold better than he is.

I've been knitting since I was 4. My mother taught me to make sweaters for a doll! I had only 1 doll, probably as big as a 1 year old. She started out by casting on and knitting the first line, then I could do the first line, and eventually I learned how to cast on. I've never stopped, and 2 of my 3 girls also are knitters. The one non-knitter has at least 1 that knits, with 2 other girls who don't seem to have the interest. (One is younger, the other too busy with her twin 8 year old boys and almost year old girl!)

I've been knitting again, but only for personal things now. I just did a scarf for my husband. Couldn't believe that in the 55 years we were married (and lived most of it in NYS) he never wore one. Now that we're in NC, he suddenly decided he needs one. So I made it and made two pockets at the ends, one with his "call letters" and one with a picture of an antenna. Our bubble mates said he would borrow it for Easter as that's when the Priests wear purple wraps. Maybe I'll make him one for next year. I still have 3 LARGE sweaters for 3 grown grandchildren to work on!

Working to get back into my quilting "routine". I have 2 rows of squares put together tonight. ~ Finished 2 quilt tops to deliver for donation on Tues.

The lady I hung out with on Wed. will be 99 on Jan. 30. Last year I believe she made over 150 quilts for vets. I was able to get her coverage in our local paper in honor of all that she does. She really DOES inspire me! Last week we worked on cutting 20 yds of batting down to her intended size. Today we worked on strips for squares to sew on a muslin backing.

Then I was able to deliver 7 of her quilts to a downtown Veteran's Service Cntr, And I got to meet a lady who had received one of her quilts. (She called my friend an "angel" for her caring and gifts for others)

Last night was a crazy night with a major storm. Over 2 inches of rain. Lots of wind! Something hit our house and shook us awake. We were concerned that a neighbor's trees may have come down on us! Thankfully, NO. ~ However, in the city where I grew up, there was a picture of a large tree limb that came through a roof & into the bedroom, pinning the wife's arm to the bed!
emoticon
The temps have been in the 50's. Supposed to drop down & get cold again! The Hellebores are starting to bloom!

Hope you are all staying warm & finding that the days are getting just a wee bit longer!

It's great that you have REAL family so close. (We call our bubble mates family, as we've known them since their youngest son was in HS, and he's the father of a 2 year old already,) I haven't seen any relative of mine in over a year now. We had gone up to NY for a weekend to see my youngest grandson (now in 7th grade) in a play

Larry has a sister who moved down here about 5 years ago, but she's single and lives a totally different lifestyle, so we don't really socialize with her. (Her son and his wife lives about 30 minutes from here.) We do run into her at Costco every now and again. When she first came here, she would join us at the "senior" groups which met every other week, alternating between the Reform Temple and Conservative Synagogue. But she stopped coming to them long ago, and of course they're not even available at all now.

We're both over 75, and I'm extra susceptible as a cancer survivor, so a mask is automatically part of my outfit these days. It's the smallest inconvenience to be able to stay safe when we do go out when we have to, which we try to keep down to a minimum.

I got to do the airport "run" tonight. DH has a bad back & it's been giving him fits. He just didn't think he could manage it all. ~ We've assisted DD in "doggy daycare" for an obnoxious 9-mon old cocker spaniel. He's really a brat. Smart, but only does what suits him, when it suits him.
emoticon
Thankful to be done with that! And thankful that DS & DIL arrived safely back in the US from Ecuador. I guess that country was once again going into "lockdown" and they had to return their rental car early. So between 5-6 hrs at that airport, and 10 hrs in Atlanta, they had been up for about 36 hrs. (DIL was born there. Her parents live there.)
emoticon
Anyway, I have a hard time driving at night...in the rain... dealing with bright lights, etc. I didn't use to have an issue, but I guess it's "older eyes", etc. Only had a couple of less-than-ideal occurrences! Yikes!

We had company over on New Year's Day. And we also went to someone else's house the day after Christmas. Ready to get back to some sort of "routine"...whatever that is?!

Nobody here wears masks. IMO they are fairly pointless. The virus is smaller than a mask. There is so much harm in wearing them. The whole idea of bacteria in one's face, being trapped in a warm, moist environment...not a wonder that pneumonia is on the rise! (DIL has been fighting it since October!) -- Both she & DS tested positive for covid Thanksgiving week. {We DID quarantine for 10 days after spending several hrs with them before they came down w/ symptoms & were tested.} Nobody social distanced. Nobody masked. We hugged "hello" and "goodbye". And both DH & I are about 60 yrs of age.

It is what it is. I'm not going to live life in fear of what "might" happen. I will hug anyone that needs/wants a hug, including the stranger that got stuck in the snow with us on Tues.
emoticon It was an adventure, and we made it back after all was said & done!




I would rather LIVE now, then miss out and never have the chance. No one knows if they will be here next Christmas. We only have the "gift" of today.

You're right. I'm not sure we could have made it this far without them.

I'm sorry my neighbors were put into the position of bein so careful. They're a lot younger than we are ( actually only 2 years older than my oldest daughter) but their daughter went through a very bad cancer scare during the beginning of this whole mess, so they had to be super-careful in order to be able to visit and host her through her chemo etc. They made masks before it was fashionable to do so, and things like that. But that's exactly what makes them ideal bubble-mates for us.

As this gets worse, we're staying in more, but they're able to get out more as their daughter is progressing nicely.

I hope 2021 comes in and we can proceed with a real life again!

Happy, Healthy, and SAFE New Year to one and all!

We celebrated with our neighbors who couldn't have their family this year. We've joined them every year since we've moved here, and their tradition is Pizza at night before they go to church (which they didn't do because of COVID!) , and then a roast the next day, which will be around 4 today!

They return the favor by joining us for almost all the lighting of the candles on the 8 days of Chanukah each year. Turns out she LOVES the LATKES, Larry makes, and when he started, he made a new batch every day. Now that we're all on diets, he just made one batch one day.
(But it lasted for 3 nights. Almost like the miracle of the oil!)

My diet consists of::

Lots of Protein, Vegetables, Fruit and Nuts and KETO ice cream.

Low Carb, not No Carb. But I don't eat any obvious carbs. No pasta, wheat, potatoes,

I made a beef stew today. Should have been "amazing", but I think my experiment in using the LOW setting didn't go as well as I hoped. (I typically use HIGH & a meal is ready in about 5 hrs!)

I browned the meat & cut it along with a large onion. (It was a cut of Angus beef; almost fat-free.) -- I added 2 potatoes, 2 carrots, 2 stalks of celery (all cut up). One can of tomatoes + a quart of water w/ "Better than Beef Bullion". I sprinkled on a couple of different seasonings + thyme, and set it on High until I left for the remainder of the afternoon. So, it was on High about 30 min and. Low for 6+ hrs.

DH thought I over-cooked it. My conclusion is that it was "under-cooked" in that even the veggies were not "soft". He felt the meat was "too chewy"?!

I ended up w/ 2 qts left over. So the weekend will entail "left-overs"... Needing to finish ALL Thanksgiving foods + the stew.

Oh well. Live & learn.

Larry has a number of different sizes of cast iron pans. I can't lift any of them. Even with two hands. (Both hands have very weak wrists; one was shattered when I fell back and landed on it, the other just a bad case of arthritis. When he uses the smaller Teflon pans for breakfast, I can manage to clean them, but when he uses the cast iron (even the littlest one) I can't lift it even with both hands.

I hear you on the speed with which November "flew" by... however, can't say the same for the rest of the year.

My understanding on cast iron (not unlike my stainless steel)... limited soap (if at all). Never put away wet or w/ moisture. "Season" regularly with oil. (I use coconut oil for most things!)

Hope you enjoy "happy cooking" in your new frying pan!

Hi All.

Not much of a chatter, and get to busy some days, but will pop in when I can. Recently started to move DH and I to a more plant based diet. Found this awesome recipe that is for "cheesy grits", but the grits are white beans - it was fantastic. So much so, DH can't wait for it again. So now I am looking for how to cook beans in the pressure cooker since I use them a lot, and find it will be more cost efficient if I make them myself rather than buying canned all the time.

Here's a great link to how to cook them in the pressure cooker (no soaking required, or you can soak and cut cook time) .
The article also has a way to make the beans and then freeze them for future use, which will be helpful. www.simplyrecipes.com/recipe

I can't really join in that conversation Larry only let me use it once I don't think he's ever used it. He comes up with interesting things on his own.

Most of the crock pot meals call for lots of potatoes and other carbs. I've been on loooow carb for years now, and I'm still not down to my goal. Only 10 pounds to go, but it's been a year at this plateau.

I'm starting to get confused as to which forum I've been on for the day. Had a really busy day from the minute we woke up. Went to a few stores, came home to take a quick 1 hour swim then ran to my chair, wolfed down dinner, and sat through 1 1/2 hour Service from a NYC Synagogue. (It's the 1st night of Rosh Hashana.) Just trying to relaxnow (if you can call catching blips of news relaxing, especially seeing that RBG just passed. )May her memory be for a blessing!
