Hi all, Happy Monday.

Puppies are like babies the wake up up in the strangest hours because of their tolietry needs lol. But for a puppy you can get a little tray and place it in laundry or somewhere in the courner. Or let them out just before you go to bed, then hopefully they can keep all in til you actually wake up.

Truthfully tired and should be in bed but a certain puppy thought she needed to get me up so that she could go outside. Now that she's in I'm off again. It's 5 minutes to 1 here.

I tell you.. no matter what I try, getting up nowadays is not easy. Maybe I should just move closer to the equator. :-D

I've been thinking of trying out barefoot shoes. Definitely not before Thanksgiving (5 mile race) but I think next year I will for sure. After doing a lot of reading, it seems like that would be my best course of action. Anyone ever try them out?

Hey everyone! It's a beautiful sunrise where I am today. I started drinking green smoothies for breakfast 10 days ago and have been seeing some benefits that I was not expecting! I'm also learning what I like and don't like. Carrots, for example, are better in stick form than liquidized!

Yeah I'm up and moving. The kittens are fed cuddled and settled down again for awhile. Walter is off to work and being on service calls all day today he won't even be home for lunch so sent it with him. Man can I get some serious "damage" done before he gets home!

Good I will do that then.

As always having a great weekend! Walt's off on service calls again so I used the time to re-rake the entire back yard and bagged eight huge bags of leaves, put all the lawn furniture away. Took me 2 hours to do it all. So now everything is done outdoors except to empty the one rain barrel and I've been hauling 3-5 pail fulls to the compost every other day. Definitely got my exercise in. Now that that is done I can once again concentrate on the indoors and make the changes I need to make in readiness for my sister's move in.
I am so excited about this. I've been waiting for this I knew it was just a matter of time. Just had to have the patience.
And now that she is coming it's all systems go! We are going to put together our own weight loss program using the Nutritarian diet and exercise program/routine and see if we can't get our own little weight loss "business" going in town here. But while we do that because it is going to take some strategy ad careful planning she will work at the paper with me and take in a couple of children to babysit. So we have a plan!

Had a phone call from an old friend from Calgary and arrangements have been made to stay with her until our flight leaves that afternoon. She will take us to the airport and we can leave the SUV with her. So it's all falling into place.

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been around much. I've been working my butt off and it is beginning to show. I'm tired and I'm weary but I must go on.

I've not been exercising as much as I'd like to. I'm in a lot of pain in my shoulder. I can barely raise it over my head. I hurt it years ago and every so often it acts up. Probably this weather, cold and windy. Still I wish I could get back to exercising. I really need a good push. My hubby is going through his semi-annual hospital tests. One last week and two this week. They are outpatient and he went by himself yesterday for the catscan. Last week and today I took off of work so I could drive him home. I'm getting audited at work next week and I'm a bit frazzled.

I have to say I'm faced with a problem. Last year in January I bough a new down jacket. It is really nice and warm. It is a size 3X. There is no way I can wear that jacket. It is huge now. I dug out my trench coat that I haven't worn sine 1995 and found out it is almost too big on me. It is a size 18. It will do for now but living in Chicago that coat isn't warm enough for the hard winter in January.

I was walking through Meijer and I saw a windbreaker on sale. It was only $6.00. They didn't have a large. I tried on a medium. It is a bit tight but I bought it. I wore it under a sweatshirt. worked well. If you told me last January I could even get my arms in a medium within 10 months I'd have laughed at you.

I'm hoping I can find a decent jacket in a resale shop or on ebay for not too much money. I plan on getting down to a small by next winter.

My daughter has a coat I love and she has only worn it once. I told her if I get to fit into it it is mine. Mine I tell you! Mine!!!!!!!

Munchkin is sitting on the computer table where my arm rests to use the mouse. She is the best cat. I really love her.

My mom is back in the Nursing Home getting Therapy.

Does anyone know why Dr. Fuhrman doesn't mention Cream of Wheat in his book? I made some for breakfast and I really like it but everyone seems to push oatmeal instead. Is Cream of Wheat unhealthy? I make it without salt.

Good evening .I'm guessing everyone went to bed early tonight! I found a recipe on another board that fits Dr.F's plan
Harvest Green smoothie
2 honeycrisp apples,cored cut into chunks
2 small bartlett pears,cored cut into chunks
1 peach pitted
1 lemon juiced
1 chunk ginger
3-4 cups water
3-4 collard leaves
3-4 kale leaves
2-3 handfuls spinach
Add fruit lemon ginger and water first blend then slowly add greens blend till smooth.

This makes a large amount,think I'll cut down recipe to 1 serving

You're not the only one that likes that show GS. I watch it quite often myself and they have a Friday Marathon of it every week!

Well I've been at it this morning already. Have everything accomplished and am ready waiting for the call to go into the paper. Always have to wait until the truck get s there and it's always a different time.

Well just got the call in. The truck will be here within the hour So off I go again for another 5-6 hours! Have everything at the ready. Pedometer is strapped on my lunch is packed; Concord grapes, sugar snap peas to Nosh on and then I made two of my fruit and veggie wraps and will take my lemon water in my 2 liter bottle. I have supper in the slow cooker making a chicken casserole for Walt. And I have all my laundry caught up, dishes done, floors swept and moped and the cat box cleaned..

Well we have changes in the wind here too. My sister from New Brunswick is coming to live. She needs out of a bad situation and she has checked all her other options and alternatives and this is the one that is the best grounded. Which I am so thankful for She belongs here with me. So she is going to be with us for Christmas in Ontario then extend her visit until her flight west here in mid January. Far cheaper that way. In the meantime she is going to start making preparations and sending things on ahead as much as possible to lessen the luggage to fly with.
All I can say is Poor Walt LOL but she and I are making serious decisions as to creating a family business but first things first getting her here. And she is Nutritarian as well! So I have my weight loss buddy! What we're looking at is to start up our own weight loss program for the area! We've already been doing some brain storning!

Well I've had my breakfast of Oatmeal, currants, prunes, sunflower seeds and Walnuts with fat free soy milk. Need all the energy I can get to start my day today!

And as much as it pulls at the ole heartstrings, I have to find homes for four of my cats. They've passed the buy law that no more than 6 cats to a household. so I need homes for Keisha, Pantara, Sabrina and the one new kitten Chiquita. the male Chico has a home and I'll be keeping Mouse the mother and her one kitten Cherokee And the older cats, 3 neutered males, Talker, Grizland, Bagera and 1 spayed female Georgie-girl all out door cats

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

Aww...that all sounds divine. I dragged myself out of bed, got a lunch into a container,,,,cannellini beans and canned tomatoes a d spices....had a shake with blueberries for breakfast..and off to work. I struggled being there. Came home as early as I could, still coughing and sniffling. Cooking Chilli Con Carne for dinner with rice and having some. Probably not good...but don't care at the moment. LOL

Oh you're nasty! LOL speaking of eating I need something I just burned off a whole let of energy raking the leaves from the front yard and stalk piling them into the flower bed as compost over the winter. Took me a little over half an hour So there's my cardio for the afternoon.

It's actually a veggie casserole.I took a spaghetti squash cut in half and boiled that,then sauteed broccoli,spinach,zucchini,onions,yellow bell pepper and yellow squash.Added fresh chopped tomatoes and a little cayanne pepper.Shred the spaghetti squash and add that,then the recipe calls for putting it in a baking dish top with cheese and bake till cheese melts.Well I'm not using cheese so I put it in a baking pan and baked it to just crisp the top a little! I tried a spoonful and it's yummy!! That's my dinner with a huge salad!! And I'm cooking my quinoa now to have for breakfast with my prunes.

Afternoon? Well it is here now LOL
yup all done inside now I'm headed outdoors once Walt leaves for work again. I have his supper simmering on the stove, and dessert cooling on the counter; baked him a wholewheat pumpkin loaf with sunflower seeds. Healthy is healthy does I can't have because it was made with white sugar this time.
Squash cassorle sounds good What else is in it besides squash?

I actually took somewhat of a relaxing day off yesterday and now today I'm right back into the swing of things too.
Completed my half hour of Wii Fit created a turkey soup/stew from the leftovers from Saturday's turkey dinner. So Walt has his dinner tonight and the bachelors next door get what's left. My kitchen is all but cleaned up now and the laundry out on the line, And I've had my oatmeal, prunes, sunflower seeds and soy fat free milk.

I have my lunch ready in the fridge and preplanned my dinner; a green salad with Salmon flakes, spinach and green beans.
This afternoon will find me outside finishing up the fall cleaning;raking leaves and turning them over into the garden as compost. More physical activity! And then I am going to work on my painting

How are we doing DAKOTA? Waiting tohear from you girl!

Sorry for your loss of your brother. So sad. It must be harder around his birthday. You need to rest and give yourself some time out. When you are tired and stressed, everything seems worse. Take care of yourself and give yourself permission to rest . emoticon

DAKOTA106, First off Why are you working so much? Why so many hours?
I know how you're feeling. Overwhelmed, no time for yourself, So what I suggest Don't pressure yourself right now Catching up on your sleep and feeling better should be priority right now. Then we'll take one day at a time and work with doing the dietary changes especially the cleanse OK
So take that "day" to relax and regain your health. Promise?

Re the soup. .. Just parsley and massell powdered vegetable stock. Don't know if you can get it over there.

Working 12 hour days...that is heaps. I find it hard working 7 hour days. It is hard to stay focussed. It has taken me yesteday and today resting with cold or sinus to slow me down and to actually plan some food for the day. emoticon

AWE G_S Wish you were feeling better hon. Glad to hear you're able to take some ME time and get some rest.

And the pie? ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! IT WAS INDEED! I HAD MY EIGHTH OF A PIECE AND IT`S ALL I NEEDED!

Even after Andrea took some of the turkey home with her I still have enough to make hot turkey sandwiches for Walt or a turkey vegetable soup. So I get to be creative! LOL

Good morning. That pie sounds delicious.

I have been MIA. Will do a blog later today.

Laying in bed, feeling a bit miserable. Have either a head cold or sinus. Couldn't go to church and it is the 30th anniversary today. I play piano, so that is bad, although my friend will play and sing. Woe is me emoticon

Max my dog is here with me. Hubby has gone to Sydney and back sometime later today. He picks up cars for a rental car business. It would be at least a 10 hour trip.

So resting, catching up on emails and posts. Have a vegetable and beans soup cooking, and a sweet curry chicken in the slow cooker for when hubby gets home.

Have a great day all. Mine will improve I know. I have had this before

Well my company showed up but they are both not feeling the greatest so they aren`t going to stay too terribly much longer. They both have colds We`ve had out Thanksgiving meal everything turned out perfectly Tried a very different style of stuffing Cornbread with farmer`s sausage double cheddar cheese, Otherwise I made up the turkey basted it in Extra virgin Olive oil sprinkled parsley and thyme on it and roasted it from frozen. I had to have whipped potatoes for Walt and steamed turnip
I was the only one who ate salad first then had a small piece of turkey, 1 Tbsp potatoes, 2 Tbsp Turnip, 1 Tbsp of the dressing and i`m just comfortably full. The pumpkin pie will be done here in about another 20 minutes and will let it cool before serving. Made it with real pumpkin rather than store bought canned.

Guilt Free Pumpkin Pie With Oat Crust
THAT DOES NOT MEAN YOU CAN EAT THE WHOLE PIE! LOL CONTROL LADIES CONTROL!

Serves 8
Preparation Time: 10 minutes

OAT PIE CRUST
1 cup quick oats (not instant)
1/4 cup ground almonds
1 tablespoon whole wheat pastry flour (optional)
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons water

PIE FILLING
1 15-ounce can of pumpkin
(Alternative) Fresh garden grown pumpkin peeled, sliced and precooked
1/2 cup date sugar (Alternative) six or seven cut up large dates
1/2 cup currents
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
1 10-ounce pkg soft tofu

CASHEW CREAM
1 1/3 cups raw cashews
3/4 cup vanilla soy milk
2/3 cup dates

INSTRUCTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Pie Crust: Mix oats, almonds and flour. Blend oil and water together with a wire whisk. Add to dry ingredients and mix until it holds together. You may need to add a little more water. Spray 9-inch pie dish lightly with cooking spray and press the crust to thinly cover the bottom and sides of the pie dish.

Pie Filling: In a blender combine the pumpkin and date sugar or dates.* Add currents, spices, arrowroot powder, and tofu. (Some like more spices; individual preference.) Blend until smooth. Pour mixture into pie shell and bake the pie for 75 minutes at 350 degrees; 15 of those minutes with the crust uncovered, and 60 minutes with the crust covered. (Tip: Cover crust by using a square of aluminum foil with a large hole cut out in the middle, leaving most of the pie uncovered.)


While pie is in the oven make the Cashew Cream. Blend all ingredients together in a l blender.

Serve slightly warm or cold with a dollop of Cashew Cream.

Note: The pie filling will firm up as it cools.

And it turns out I do have a male in amongst the kittens! The smallest Tux is my male! So I will continue nursing him until he is big and strong as the others and then Andrea is going to take him! I am so glad!

Sorry folks that I couldn`t be here to greet you and say good morning I`m afraid I had no choice in the matter but to be MIA today. I`m expecting company tomorrow and they will be here before lunch time so i`ve been in major preparation for this much anticipated visit. I still have a few things to do tomorrow morning yet, but i`m sure to have it all done before they get here!
At least I'm hoping to. I have the pumpkin pie to make, and the fresh buns. But I'm up at my usual time so I should have things done.
I feel so good today The scales have moved downward once again 2 pounds more! I just might make my first goal by Christmas!

So what`s everybody else`s day been like?

NoMore, I'm so sorry about Denver. Losing a beloved pet is really hard. I've been there, it sucks big time. Where are the adrenal glands on a dog? There isn't any treatment?

Why do I like the new books better. They are easier to read. I actually understand it. I found Eat to Live a chore to get through but this was written to be informative but didn't bog you down. I hope you understand what I mean.

He isn't so dogmatic about the start of the diet. He almost is doing it my way, an ease into the program. I'm almost vegan now, but I was frustrated when I started. Now with his less strict approach if I eat 4 ounces of liver for lunch I don't feel like I failed.

Now don't tell me not to kick myself. I'm not. It's just that I'm serious about this and if I don't carry through I'm not going to hold myself to account. I did the best I could do. She gave me fruit instead of the potatoes and veggies instead of the salty soup. The salad was yummy. So I don't feel guilty.

The cookbook is book two in the set. It has some really interesting recipes in it. Much more than what i in Eat to live.You remember I was complaining about the food in the first book. Looking through this cookbook was fun and it had quite a few recipes I'm looking forward to trying.

I was tired when I got home yesterday let me tell ya! Over 10,000 papers stuffed strapped and sent out for today! it was work let me tell ya and to keep everyone there organized. It was simple things like there would be 12 bundles of 100 for a town but the label said 1 of 13 2 of 13 etc Just guess how many times I had to explain to people that the extra label goes on the last bundle with the 12 out of 13! Drive me nuts. Simpletons some days let me tell ya.

But we started at 11:30 and were out of there by 5. If we would have had the 40 bundles to do for Stettler we would have been there another hour and a half. So I was ever so glad when I inserted my last flyer into the last paper bundled it and tossed it into the truck for delivery!

Today it's back to the norm around here. Get Walt up for work get him sent out the door, look after the animals, do my half hour cardio tidy the house run my errands etc.
I ordered Walt's real birthday present yesterday. My boss made the centennial jackets available for everyone to order who wanted one So I ordered one for each of us. $40 a piece. They're black hoodies sip up front and then they have the crown and the 100 year logo on the left side. She's putting in the order the end of the month and then it takes 30 days to custom make them and get them here. So excited about that. They'll be keepsakes for us and a memento should we ever decide to move which is what I wanted.

On another note Our poor Denver has a date with pain relief.
That external adrenal gland is now causing him discomfort, emitting an odor and constantly weeping and bursting it burst again here three days ago and he lost quite a bit of blood. He's now 12 years old and I won't see him go through the suffering now so we made the arrangements yesterday. So sometime within the next 30 days....

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT. BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

There is a putting up with pain and then there is managing pain. Listen go to the health food store and get yourself the Glucosamine, Chondriton and MSM for pain. It helps believe me!

Thanks sweetie, you always know the right things to say to make me smile. I knew my son was still not feeling well so now I have an appointment with the family doctor in 2 weeks. And as far as my surgery goes I am going to just let nature takes it course and maybe in March or April I will then go for it but for now I will have to put up with the pain

ASHARA, I know the day was disappointing and upsetting but if you really look at it everything is to your benefit.If they hadn't caught the infection in your sons lung and got him onto the operating table the outcome could have not been a positive one, with more complications
And I know you would rather get your surgery over with as soon as possible too because of the pain you are in but hon the more weight you lose that faster your knees will heal too.

BABAKA I am very proud of you! You did very well! You made exceptional choices! And you need to share girlfriend! What's in that new book that you like so much better than the Eat To Live?

Yes Tuxedo has the white front so it looks like she is wearing a grey suit with the white front hence the tuxedo. And now as soon as she hears my voice she starts crying and trying to get to me. Her eye has stayed open all day but I will bath it before I go to bed tonight too.

And I too have some very heavy a heart news. Our Denver isn't doing so well. his adrenal glands had started to block and in order to find a route they became external. Now it has become the size of a fast ball and it continuously keeps bursting.The other day it burst so bad he lost at least a 1/4 cup of blood. It's happening more and more often now and I'm thinking it's turned cancerous so heart-breakingly Walt and I made the arrangements to take away his pain I cried for a full straight half hour. He is my puppy and is so attached to me. So it is going to be very hard. but for the best. I would rather do it this way than see him suffer in pain and let him live out his days.

ESHARA, I'm sorry things didn't go well at the hospital for you today. Seems like it must be in the stars or something. My hubby had a procedure scheduled and the Dr.'s secretary forgot to schedule the operating room, so when we got there we weren't sure it would happen. Fortunately things worked out but he is home and in more pain than usual.

I took the time while they were operating to see my mom. She is out of intensive care and in a cardiac ward. They say it is a step up for her.

When we left we went to a pancake house for lunch. My hubby chowed down on pancakes and bacon and potatoes and eggs. I had liver, salad and a fruit compote. I only ate half the liver. I'm proud of myself for that I usually eat it all. I love liver and the only time I get it is when I'm at that restaurant. Still it isn't exactly Dr. Furhman. LOL

I'm doing pretty well with that diet. I bought his new book and cookbook and I like it better than Eat to live. I still haven't had time to look over the Spark Cookbook that came last week but I have to say it is one of the finest bound books I've ever owned. I wish my Bible was bound like this cookbook it. It opens and lays flat beautifully.

Hi everyone;

I have some disappointing news to tell you all. I went over to see the surgeon that will be doing my surgery and found ut that I wont have my operation until next March or April which is a bummer and then My son was suppose to have surgery at 1 my time but he still have an infection in his left lung so now we have to wait until he sees the family doctor in 2 weeks and after that he will go and have his surgery. I lost my temper with the guy that was going to put him to sleep. The way I was feeling I dont blame myself at all for it either. they should have checked him first instead of getting him ready for the operation. he was almost through the doors to the operating room when they said no operation today.

Good morning

Yes I am guilty for not responding to all your posts, but sometimes I find myself getting bogged down with messages. Your kittens certainly have very unique names. Did you name the her Tuxedo because of her color and she reminds you of a Tuxedo? I like the names Cherokee and Grey-feathers and I bet they live up to their names.

I kind of partial to dogs myself. I never really got along with felines, maybe because when I was little my aunt's tom attached me for no apparent reason. He was just mean and spiteful, couldn't get along with anybody but my aunt. He didn't even like my uncle. But one day he came up missing and no body knew what had happen to him and we never saw him again.

GOOD MORNING ALL!

And the paper calls my name again today As soon as they call and tell me the truck is coming in and what time.
It looks like I'm going to have to nurse one of my kittens; Tuxedo. She's had this one eye that has taken forever to open so I'd started applying a warm cloth to re-open it each morning.And she has a bit of mucus accumulation behind it just like mommy did when she was born and I had to nurse her too. I think I need to add a little extra to her feeding times too She's so much smaller than the other two. Cherokee is the biggest ball of fur and getting very investigative while Grey-feather is so quiet You hardly know she's there. So I'll pick up some baby formula and pablum today and mix it watery and feed her by eye dropper.

AND A HEARTY WARM WELCOME TO YOU BETSYK
