See this image largerSee this image largerJust ran across this. Thought it was hillarious.See this image largerRight now I'm trying to get as healthy as possible with no kidneys. I feel pretty good. 😊 Now this image ... I promise I didnt search for it. Stuff just kind of comes to me...lolSee this image largerLunch was good πŸ˜‹ Wanted something different. Haven't Had salmon cakes in ages.See this image largerOnly 2.4 liter fluid gain. Yay!! I usually retain 3.3 liter or more. Tracking what I eat helped 😊 Next goal....loss of body fat! Hot in the clinic..eye liner ran but my face looks less bloated. Its a start . I dislike taking pictures. Maybe it can change too.See this image largerArtificial Meat Warning!! Folks...watch out for vegan meat products. The food industry keeps trying to feed us chemicals that Cause diseases !!! https://youtu.be/vRSmvYtwVToSee this image largerOnly had a plum for lunch. 4 pm and I'm starving. About to roll up this fajita and enjoy it 😜See this image largerDialysis went great today. I don't feel like I've run a marathon. It should really count as a work out!! Please send me your support that I won't over eat or drink at the beach this Weekend and gain 13 lbs of fluid. Lol HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYBODY !! 🌞See this image largerThree of us shared this platter at La Mancha and I just drank water. The food was delicious and I didn''t feel guilty. Actually I''ve never had steak this great before πŸ˜‹ My daughter wanted dessert and I took her by Dairy Queen. I can''t have ice cream 🍦and asked her if she would save me 1 nibble. She didn''t..then told me..Mom you''re on fluid restriction and ice cream melts...haha.See this image largerI wish I had some more of this food πŸ˜‹See this image largerCute restaurant..the eyes feast as well πŸ˜„See this image largerIm eating Wal Mart rotissery chicken on a paper plate right now...wishing I was still at the beach dining out...lolSee this image largerDid my walking on the beach this weekend. It was nice. I can normally only excersise in the water when its in the tripple digits. I can no longer sweat. Its great because I dislike sweating. But you have no way to cool down.See this image largerThey had eye of round steak on sale really cheap. I found this red wine and onion recipe to make it tender. It was going to be supper but I couldn't wait. Having a late lunch .πŸ˜‹ Will swim it off later. 😊 http://allrecipes.com/recipe/152453/pr
See this image largerAsian rice noodles. Home cooked. No MSG!See this image largerSee this image largerLate lunch! I honestly looked forward to the brussel sprouts the most. I seasoned by pork chop like a German pork steak and didnt batter or fry it. So it tastes more like a spiced up steak. I have to eat meat and keep albumin levels up. Vegan and dialysis don't mix well. I was actually told to eat more meat than fruits or veggies. Crazy, right?See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerMy daughters Wii U just received this demo. Looks like fun. I've had dialysis so I'm wobbly. Might be the only exercise I get today. Lol So I'll just go for it. Ya'll dance with me. It's on youtube πŸ’ƒ https://youtu.be/CDdzZwZpeqUSee this image largerI did good today. Danced two songs on the WiiU. Ran around the grocery store. Put away food and swam 2 hrs. Time for a snack and off to bed. Goodnight everybody πŸŒ› I actually had fruit. But these eggs look so cute. Nice idea 😊See this image largerSome protein and carbs before my work out.Baked chicken and Italian pasta salad. I'm so hungry πŸ˜‹See this image largerLate lunch or early supper? LOL I like to eat well before I work out. I normally don't cook breaded fish but I needed to get it out of my freezer. And believe it or not I'm not suppose to eat kale. Well I have to eat binders no matter what I eat. So I might as well eat and extra pill or two and have my kale. I feel better when I eat it!!See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerSee this image largerI survived dyalisis and managed to walk around the grocery store for an hour. Yay! Time for my reward. πŸ˜‹See this image largerMidnight snack time! But hey..its only 20 calories. A simple German radish salad. Chop your radishes in a food chopper..add a pinch of sea salt and let it sit a moment. It will litterally make it's own dressing. So good πŸ˜‹See this image largerI''ve always wanted to travel to Petra (my name) in Jordan and eat Tabbouleh salad. It looked so good on that travel video. My Egyptian doctor was nice enough and bought me a bag of bulgur. Yay! Bulgur , lemon, garlic, cucumber, tomato, parsley , mint, green onions and olive oil ...it is so good..so refreshing and one cup has under 100 calories. The grains are filling. I think I will just stick to vegan tonight. πŸ˜‹See this image largerPosted a photoSee this image largerSee this image largerAll puffy today. But my daughter said I look nice. Thought I'd pop in and say "Hi". 😁See this image largerI ate my 1200 calories a day last weekend and stuck my my fluid restriction and gained 13 lbs over the weekend. I was so upset. From Tue to today I ate the same amount of foods and drink and gained only 3.5 lbs. A light bulb went off. It's not me. It's my hormones. Omg! I kept beating myself up that I did something wrong.See this image largerNeed prayer. 10 more min. Trying to stay positive ..startung to cramp. Wish me luck!See this image largerI have requested excercise bikes for the clinic today. I told them if don't get them the patients will turn into this:See this image largerGood morning Sparkies 🌞 You can do it !!!See this image largerAnybody into numerology? I ate 1111 calories today. LOL Wild, right? My pie chart was almost perfect.See this image largerSee this image largerIt's about a 500 calorie dinner but I did not eat any lunch. Pork loin, rice, portabella mushrooms and baby asparagus salad. My daughters first day back in school. She deserves to come home to a nice meal.See this image largerGot mail today. My 15 yr old cat Binki has been laying in the box since I've opened it. Doesn't take much to make a cat happy. 🐱See this image largerNever give up. We can do this!!! If you can watch this 80 yr old model. He will tell you anything is possible. https://youtu.be/Ge_rcmgvDyASee this image largerI skipped lunch again. I rather eat nice dinner. Salmon, broccoli and fettucini. I know I should skip the pasta. But I did low carb 15 yrs ago and lost 20 and gained 50 back. Do not think I want to do that again. Nutritionist said everything in moderation. I do stay away from cakes and pies however..lol.See this image largerWent to sleep around 11:30pm and woke up at 1:30am full of energy. Quite crazy! So here I am 4am cooking tomorrows dinner. 😬 The recipe wasn't for the slow cooker so I shall keep you posted how the experiment goes. If all goes well I should have a meal ready when I get home from treatment πŸ˜‹ I usually post my own pictures..but since I haven't cooked it yet...this is the image from the recipe.See this image largerWater aerobics ended. So I've started back to walk at the indoor track at a local church this morning after only 2 hours sleep. Now 30 min is all I could do. I had on brand new Pumas and I guess they are for yoga where you sit around in them..LOL....they ain't meant for walking. My feet are still throbbing. Good thing I will just sit around for the next 4 hours at the clinic.See this image largerThis sign was outside my indoor walking track this morning.Perfect! First time back at the place. I walked around the neighborhood last winter. I love walking in the cold. I come alive in it. Here's a riddle: I was born in winter...a few miles from Winterhausen... I was born with dark hair and skin like snow white. Can you guess my birth name? 😁See this image largerMy nutritionist gave me these little bags of samples today. And instructions on how to make it. Before I left I was like...gosh I hope I don't get pulled over. Haha I guess I watch to many movies. Thought you would get a chuckle. πŸ˜…See this image largerHungarian pork today. 368 calories for this plate. Avoid restaurants..especially fast food if you can. It is always healthier to cook at home.See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerI think she is telling me not to even think about making my bed up..lolSee this image largerHope you are having a great Sunday and you are able to relax some 😊 My Princess is chilling.See this image largerI've been up since 3:50 am. But sleepyhead (you can tell I was half awake) had a goal to walk at least 30 min at the indoor track and then buy groceries...which added another 45 min of walking and excercise carrying all the bags up the stairs and into the house. Pheww...I did it!!! It is already feeling like 95 out there. 🌞See this image largerMade the spark recipe layered Mexican bean dip. Will try it for supper. It has enough nutrients with all those beans and greek yoghurt and salad and veggies...why heat up the house by cooking. It is so hot in Georgia!!See this image largerGood morning 😊 Did 30 min at the indoor track (the balcony in the pic) inside a local church. Blood pumping good. Ready to have it cleaned. Ya'll have a fastic day and keep sparking 🌞See this image largerGood morning...keep on shining Sparkies πŸ’₯ Here's something relaxing a youtube friend uploaded this morning. Hope ya'll enjoy it 🌞 https://youtu.be/7wsJAg6SVpE LONG TIME SUN - SNATAM KAUR β™₯See this image larger(1 comments)See this image largerI baked at 9am while it wasn't so hot outside yet. I don't want to heat up the house in the afternoon when the AC has to work extra hard. As a result I kept smelling food. By 11 am I had to dig in. LOL Baked skinless chicken, potatoes, veggies and stuffed mushrooms.See this image largerSo far I've walked 30 min every day this week. It's just all I can do for the moment until I work my way back up.See this image largerAnother old photo. We can't go back can we? We can only move forward and try to become better versions of ourselves. Mind, body and spiritually!See this image largerWell off to the hospital for blood work. Wish me luck that we will find the missing link why this weight isn't budging. Then off for a walk. Not giving up!!!See this image largerI forgot to post this. I've tried the corn salad recipe on SP. It is a nice and light snack. I added half a bell pepper it didn't ask for. It has under 200 calories per 1.5 cups. No salt added...just one spoon of olive oil. Also nice as a dip for tortilla chips or whatever you prefer.See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerHope everybody had a wonderful day! Enjoying some cauliflower and pork chop with a refreshing cucumber salad on the side. Time for some excercise next 😊See this image largerHappy Tuesday Sparkies πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ŒπŸŒ… You eat right. You are working out that body. Let's not forget to give that brain a fun work out as well. πŸ˜‰ Play with me 😁See this image largerThis is perfect πŸ˜† I woke up this morning (after being awake more than asleep) with most my bedding on the floor. Not usual for me. LOL Hope everybody is having a wonderful day πŸŒ… It's 70 degrees for a change so I might actually go walk outdoors for a change!See this image largerWent for my walk in the neighborhood. There is this one aggravating dachshund that always barks at me. Now there's 4 and they all chased me. Flea size attack dogs 🐢See this image largerIt's a beautiful day in Georgia. Finally a morning in the 70's !!! I didn't have to spend time driving to and from the indoor track...so I walked that extra 30 min instead. I feel so accomplished 😊 My walking buddy Snookie still recognized me after all these months of not walking outdoors. She is the sweetest. Belongs to my next door neighbor and fellow dyalisis patient.See this image largerHome made Chinese food tonight. Steamed broccoli, steamed white rice and orange sesame chicken. No MSG! Low sodium! Just a few spoons sesame oil!See this image largerHappy Thursday Sparkies !!! It's another wonderful day to eat healthy and to get that body moving.See this image largerCalling out to all Sparkies!! Eat your fruits and get moving with me πŸ™ŒπŸ’ƒπŸ™Œ If I can bounce around in my dyalisis chair and look silly so can you. 😁😁😁 https://youtu.be/pzuTWm7D0mE (In the summertime- Just dance Dancing fruit video)See this image largerNone scale victory πŸ™ŒπŸŽ‰πŸ’ƒπŸ’ͺ Exra 1 kilo fluid removed without a problem !!!

You've already got the shirt to lounge in πŸ˜‰ LOLSee this image largerThis stuff is the bomb for weight loss!!! I can't open the yar. Haha πŸ˜‚ Happy Sunday all !!!See this image largerGood morning Sparkies πŸŒ… So I didn't think I'd make it past my mail box this morning with all the extra weekend fluid and this mornings coffee. But Coach Palmer told us not to slack...so I pushed. And was that sun (image) ever so bright!!! Ran into an old buddy of mine. She brings me pine cones to play fetch...lol. I still can't sweat but the one hour walk made my skin glow and I think my eyes twinkle...ha.See this image largerHappy labor day...keep on shining Sparkies..like that bright sun from my morning walk πŸŒ…See this image largerLunch...Steak...okra and salad. I probably will eat half now and half For dinner.See this image largerLet''s pray for Puerto Rico!!! They are asking for group meditations to slow this storm down. Prayer works...combined prayer is better. Our old buddy Don Baaska sadly passed away a few weeks ago. I''m worried about Valli...she''s alone down there...evacuated to a hotel further inland. This has to be so scary for her and everybody else on the island as well. Let''s pray for everybody...may they be protected. Here''s a song I''m sharing in memory of Don: https://youtu.be/gbxMKEcidakSee this image largerWell I just inhaled lunch..LOL Body is craving carbs today. And some days it doesn't. Evetything in moderation I'll say.See this image largerSee this image largerMy daughter loves pocky chocolate sticks , Sonic & drawing. She is quite the little artist. She'd make a great cartoonist. She is just now getting into digital drawing. Which to me is much harder than on paper. Oh I don't think the female caracter exists. It's her idea of a self portrait. LOL Thought I'd share. Happy weekend!See this image largerOne more self portrait of my daughter. She drew that on her tablet a few days ago 😊 Maybe one day I'll be thin and feel like a kid again. 😁 Well it's my wish for all of us. πŸ’—See this image largerSchnitzel dinner 😊 In case we lose power over the weekend I didn't want my Schnitzel meat to spoil. Good excuse to eat well...LOL. Had plenty eggs so I made home made Bavarian egg dumplings "Spaetzle" to go along with it. Weather is gorgeous today. Ready for my walk later! Nice weekend..shame Irma is lurking and it is the only time it isn't so hot and we have a breeze.See this image largerIt's going to be a tropical weekend...and I'm not talking about a beach vacation. LOL I'm where the gray dot is. Oh well...this too shall pass. Praying for Florida right now!!!See this image largerSee this image largerThat is so me πŸ˜† Happy Saturday Sparkies πŸŽ†See this image largerFound a new water I like. πŸ’Ÿ Has no sugar or sweetners and a surprising great flavor. Not all sparkling waters taste this yumm.See this image largerSee this image largerHappy Sunday Sparkies πŸ’—See this image largerWow...another cat 5. !!! Eighter we have serious global warming problems or geoengineers have declared war. I've never seen so many cat 5 hurricanes back to back. Irma, Jose and now Maria...all pummeling the same areas over and over. My prayers go out to all in the path of the storm. May God protect them and Give them the strenght to rebuild their lives and not let them lose faith.See this image largerI'm so getting one of these shirts...haha. You know I've only lost a few pounds ...literally just 2-3... but somehow I've got two XL shirts that fit great. Hopefully one day they will be loose. 😊See this image largerHeading out to the doctors. Seems to be the only place I get to wear jewelery anymore. I've quit wearing any at dyalisis. I leave there in a fog and have lost several pieces I love. I get clumsy and drop it...fluid gets removed and a tight ring may fall off and I don't even know it. I can tell I still have fluid on from where they gave me saline yesterday. Goes straight to my eye lids. Better luck Thursday! LOL Oh well...feel quite human right now...no t-shirt and sweat pants 😊.See this image largerWell...except for my diseased kidneys...I am as healthy as a horse. Perfect blood pressure despite being overweight and carrying of extra fluid. Not took bp meds in 6 months...(I believe it is my pink salt that makes all the difference). Blood sugar ok. She is happy with my 1200 a day diet. I'm like I want to do more than maintain. Just said to keep going. I have two things against me...no kidneys and being female...LOL...so I'll have to be patient.See this image largerSmokey mountain chicken and veggies tonight. It is just chicken breast seasoned with lemon pepper and topped with cooked mushrooms and a slice of provolone. The cheese adds extra calories but so worth it. I just ate less all day to make up for it. πŸ˜‰See this image largerWas talking with some friends last night. Decided to pull out some old photos. Caught her guardian angels On camera. 😊 πŸŒŒπŸ˜‡ Thought I'd share. Have a blessed Sunday!See this image largerGoing thru old photos. LOL My daughter 9 yrs ago. Time sure flies by fast for all of us. Wow!See this image largerHad a taste for German food ... Curry wurst and roasted potatoes with onions and caraway. Who needs french fries?See this image largerBack from water aerobics. Love it ..love it...love it!!! Was great to get back in the water after over a month. Great work out! And lots of familiar faces. Felt like a family reunion. You know what is crazy liberating? To ride home wrapped in a towel with the windows rolled down feeling the wind in your hair when its 90 degrees outside. LOL Whooo hooo...I''m such a rebel. πŸ’ƒπŸ™ŒπŸ’ƒπŸ™ŒSee this image largerSee this image largerWell the good news is I won't be waking up at 3:30 am like I normally do since I haven't went to sleep yet. LOLSee this image largerI usually have eggs for breakfast. Wanted some shrimp and grits instead...with some cajun seasonings for some spice. Started cooking and realized I was out of frozen shrimp. LOL Still pretty good. πŸ˜‹ I won't be hungry when I go to the pool in a few hours. Have a blessed day Sparkies πŸŒ…See this image largerSee this image largerDinner is ready. After all that swimming and water excercising I worked up an appetite. Unfortunately I am still feeling hungry after eating. Nuts! Anybody else have that problem, too ???See this image largerStill baking my own sour dough rye bread. It is so much better for you. No preservatives. The sour dough aids digestion and the rye helps with blood sugar. My phosperous levels are down when I don't eat store bought bread. And that is a blessing.See this image largerI hate to toot my own horn. πŸŽ‰ But I do bake the best chicken. LOL Wish I could share it to proof it. πŸ˜„See this image largerHad to do something with my cucumbers before they go bad. Figured Gurkensalat would be a good choice. Can't eat much of it bc they are mostly water. But at least this will keep in the fridge a few days.See this image largerSee this image largerEggplant Parmesan..yumm πŸ˜‹ Better than pizza. So good! Made pasta too in case my daughter Didn't want eggplant. But she enjoyed both 😊.See this image largerHome made sunflower and flax seed Bread. Preservative free. Honey instead of HFCS. Only problem I have is I can never wait for it to cool off before I have to cut it. LOLSee this image largerSee this image largerMy little artist has been busy doodling. She was just showing me what she did today. 😊 To bad images always get clipped on here. Wish it wouldn't do that. Oh well. Anyway..thought I would share. You don't want to see what my drawings would look like...LOL.See this image largerSee this image larger"The fount of health is in your soul; it has a door locked fast; the key is faith." -- Jesus--See this image largerWas soaking up some sun after my water aerobics today. We finally had some fall temperatures and the pool heater was broke...burrrr. It felt great sitting in the sun in 68 degrees. 🌞See this image largerAt school she likes doodling and day dreaming about boys. 😊 At home she loves cuddling with her baby and video games. πŸ˜‰ I was taking my after dyalisis nap yesterday and woke up with them sitting in my bed like that..LOL.See this image largerI baked some olive, herb and parmesan bread last night. Mmmm wish ya could smell it πŸ˜‹. Made a sandwhich for dyalisis. Plus I suppose to eat something salty like chips. I bring salted radishes and mini pickles instead...they don't have emty calories and do provide some nutrients. I also have doctors orders to add salt to my drink. So I make sugar free lemonade with a splash of lime juice. It is like a faux margarita...and way better than salty water...LOL 🍍🍸🍹See this image largerMade some slow cooker pork chops...sooo good. Mixed greens and a forbidden sweet potato. OMG...it was so delicious. (I think it will be ok. I have regular potatoes every now and then and my potassium levels are ok.) Only bought two at the store so I wouldn't be tempted to go overboard. That potato made my day ya'll have no idea....LOLSee this image larger@CONSTANCE067 This is the piece of furniture I was telling you about. While I didn't do any house work as a child...I do remember tending to it with polish and a soft cloth. Just something about it 😊.See this image larger@CONSTANCE067 Now my best friends mom paints old furniture. This is a piece she restored and then painted. I thought it was very nice. The wine bottles on top is from their vineyards. They also distill snaps and her mom makes liqueur from berries in their garden.See this image largerJust a big salad tonight. With chicken and lots of banana peppers. Felt like spice so I added some green salsa too. It is quite spicey and more like a thin guacamole. I know it doesn't look fantastic but it is actually quite yumm.See this image largerToday we used water dumbells for our work out. It was a great work out and so much fun. Anything you do on land is way more fun and feels like childs play in the water. I urge anyone to give it a try. I think you will love it. πŸ’–See this image largerApparently this is a Greek stew. I had a beef roast and butternut and acorn squash and portabellas and thought they would pair well. I had no idea the dish existed. LOL But hey...I carry a Greek name...so at some point I was going to kick out a Greek dish..eh? I especially love the butternut squash. Ever since I had that sweet potato a few days ago I have a taste fot these things. It is so worth taking that chalky potassium binder just so I can enjoy something my body is craving.See this image largerHome made spaghetti for my child..with peppers, onions, mushrooms, ground beef, italian sausage, tomatoes.....herbs and spices...the works! I am waiting on my spaghetti squash to finish baking. I am tempted to eat a bowl of the real deal...LOL.See this image largerSpaghetti squash lasagna for me πŸ˜‹. Home made spaghetti for my daughter. Who wants to help me come eat and wash the dishes....haha. I am tired. I had a great work out at the pool then cleaned up and cooked. Now I have more to clean. LOL We will be eating left overs tomorrow. I am not well enough to do a bunch of standing around after treatment. Well I am about to dig in. I haven't had lunch. ToodlesSee this image largerBeautiful evening in Georgia. πŸ’– Nice temperatures in the 70's. Sky looked a bit odd in places. X marks the spot, what? And curtain clouds. LOL ☁See this image largerSo my mom mailed this huge 70 lb box of candy and all from Germany. It came yesterday but I wouldn't open it out of fear I would want to dig in. Thank God I have a watch cat. LOL Binki has only left it to eat and use the litterbox. How can I upset my dear sweet senior kitty and open it? 🐱See this image largerWell I've unboxed my goodies. Now Figi is like where did all the stuff go? Thought Binki was guarding the box...LOLSee this image largerSee this image largerUnusually cold today! Good day for a sheppards pie. To cold for salad. Am I weird? I only like salads on warm days. Good thing I am in the South... LOL It will be back in the 80's in another day or two.See this image largerSee this image largerGot my work out in. Didn't feel like standing around in the kitchen today. So I'm trying a honey garlic chicken crockpot recipe. It smells very good πŸ˜‹. Shall steam some broccoli and we'll have a meal when my child gets home from school.See this image largerThis is the same crock pot dish I posted about earlier. My daughter loves it and wanted me to take a picture. It turned out really yummy. And unlike Chinese take out you don't have all that grease and MSG and whatever else they add.See this image largerQuick meal ! Chicken breast with mushrooms and provolone. Steamed broccoli and some steamable New England style protein and grains blend that is very yummy.See this image largerOnly my child would do this when you tell her to paint a pumpkin....haha. πŸ˜„ They were asked to paint pumpkins in art class. I expected an orange fellow. LOLSee this image largerForgot to buy lettuce today. So I made a Lebanese parsley salad instead. It is good for you and refreshing...so why not? πŸ˜‰See this image largerWanted something different tonight. Decided on a lobster and shrimp bisque. πŸ˜‹ I didn't use heavy cream ..water and 2% milk..you really can't tell. And I only made enough for one bowl each. So no chance on messing up on portion control. Eating this slowly...LOL.See this image largerToday we used aqua joggers after our initial water aerobics class with noodles. Our instructer found them in the pool closet and wanted to try them. While I missed our dumbells today ...I was able to get lots of crunches in with this floating device. I don't understand why anybody wants to work out on dry land. I can not sweat and I can excercise in the water as long as I want and never get hot. I love it!! πŸ’–See this image largerZuchini Lasagna.....didn't miss the pasta one bit. πŸ˜‹See this image largerSee this image largerQuick lunch. But kind of disappointing. The package was misleading. Good thing I bought two. The two little filets you see ...well there were only 3 in my big ole bag. The 12 oz must have been frozen weight. More like 3 after cooking. I won't be buying cod again. Sticking with Salmon or talapia. Veggies and rice were great!! πŸ˜‹See this image largerBaked my bread for the weekend last night. Gotta keep that phosperous low. I should probably just cut it out period. But my doctor says Keto would be toxic to me. Everytime I attempted to cut carbs this week something stopped me. So in the meantime I enjoyed some of my olive, oregano, parmesan and garlic loaf. πŸ˜‹See this image largerKind of a sad day. Another 8 weeks of water aerobics have come to an end. It is by far my favorite way to excercise. I will eighter have to walk until January or just go swimming without an instructor. I enjoy having an instructor...she makes things fun and keeps us motivated to work harder.See this image largerWantec a smoothie for dinner. I used frozen strawberries, blueberries, bananas, chia seeds, soy milk, splash of mango, juice and a scoop of protein powder. It's like soft serve ice cream. Essentially I am having a nutritious dessert as a meal replacement. πŸ˜‹See this image largerSee this image largerTrying something new here. Instead of drinking when I get thirsty I will eat one of these. The ice is not only refreshing but one popsicle melted is so much less fluid then if I even drink a tiny glass of liquid. I just had a lemonade one and I feel quite happy about it. πŸ˜‹See this image largerOK ....I must be in Pre Thanksgiving mode. 😊 LOL This is sugar free, fat free pumpkin mousse and 55 cal per serving. Everything I have cooked today looks surprisingly rich but I am doing good on calories and nutrition. My brain says I am splurging however and I need to stay out of that kitchen.See this image largerSee this image largerJust purchased this as a gift for my daughters Nana. She is cooking Thanksgiving and I thought this was so pretty as table decor. 😊See this image largerI made Dr Berg's cauliflour crust pizza. He calls it the healthiest pizza in the world. LOL You can google the recipe or watch it on his youtube channel. I added banana peppers one one side but not on the other. The toppings are all up to you 😊. My daughter made her own.See this image largerI live in t-shirts now that I spend so much time at dyalisis. I found some cute ones today. 😁See this image largerScored some new shoes today 😊. Holidays are good for something besides eating. LOL Hope I will walk faster and further in those... πŸ˜‰.See this image largerOk...I promise I will quit posting clothes. LOL These just made me chuckle today and I will feel good wearing them. We have to feel good in our own skin and our work out clothes...right...πŸ˜‰.See this image largerSee this image largerWant a good treat? Frozen black grapes. πŸ§πŸ‡So yummy! πŸ˜‹ Refreshing, too! I am strange. I prefer to eat fresh green grapes over red ones. But if it is juice or wine I rather have red over white. If I want frozen grapes I prefer the black grapes.See this image largerWho else is tired of ham and turkey? Thai rice noodles for me. πŸ˜‹ I control what goes in it. No MSG! Crab, bean sprouts, spring onions, bamboo shoots, egg, sesame seed oil and chinese spices. How Asian it is...well it tastes exactly like the food I used to pay $ 30 a plate for in Germany. It's owners looked Asian. Didn't speak a word of German.See this image largerSee this image largerSo mean...LOL πŸ˜„ Good thing I don't have a fire place and a well behaved child.See this image largerThis is what happens when you marinade venison in red wine and spices for several days and cook it. Organic meat that doesn't require a knife to eat. LOL My child has been gobbling it up. Probably thinks it is beef burgundy. Not telling her any different. πŸ˜‰See this image larger@GPALMER29 Here is a real German chocolate cake for you. No coconut!

I heard it toasts 4x as fast then a regular toaster. πŸ˜‚See this image largerI just posted a link to a video I've made on my blog. It's about my recent experience with A1C tests. Please go check it out. :) May it be of benefit to anybody struggling to lose weight or already struggling with blood sugar issues. Don't rely on lab tests. Check yourself regularly at home.See this image largerSee this image larger@Sadiemeyers You know I love to cook. But that means I will eat. So I found a new creative outlet that keeps me from eating (especially when I paint or when they're still wet πŸ˜‚). LOL Who says you can't enjoy candy corn on a diet? πŸ˜… (Well I actually never liked eating it. Way to sweet!) I'm having deli chicken today!! That's my low carb dish of the day. My leopard print took a while and I don't want to lose sequins washing dishes quite yet. πŸ˜‰ Hope everybody has a happy day today!!!See this image largerSo I fasted yesterday. The result was this morning I cooked everything but the kitchen sink in one pan. πŸ˜‚ Oh well. Happy Monday to me!! πŸ˜‹See this image largerThis is what I've been doing to keep from eating or cooking. 😁 I need to think of something really creative and very time consuming for the Thankgiving weekend. LOL Maybe work on extravagant xmas nails and toe nails? A non scale victory for be would be to be able to reach my toes with no problem at all. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerThe anti dote to eating and drinking.... WET NAILS πŸ˜‚. It's what I've been up to. Cooking was my creative outlet. I've been changing my focus on nails. I can just look at them when done. Don't feel like eating them or even taking a bite. πŸ˜‰ Helped me thru Thanksgiving. Getting ready to tackle Christmas. πŸŽ„β˜ƒβ„See this image largerSee this image largerSee this image largerHi, haven't posted in a while. Thought I would chime in for a change. Been watching my favorite German chef cook. Been meaning to try his noodle and veggie casserole. Since I am eating low carb these days I will use cauliflower in place of Schupfnudeln. I think it'll be just as great πŸ˜‰. It's broccoli, carrots, bacon, cauliflour and cheese casserole basically.See this image largerI was working on making overnight chocolate chia seed pudding. It was on my Keto breakfast list. Just wanted something different but healthy. I just let my daughter try it and told her it had to sit in the fridge for breakfast. To which she replied: Oh ok. Yeah I'll eat your concoction in the morning. πŸ˜‚ It was actually suppose to be mine. LOL I will have to make more next time so I will actually get some.See this image largerThis low carb spinach, mushroom, bacon, egg and cheese breakfast casserole was really delicious. πŸ‘… So much so I just had some more of it for lunch. πŸ˜‹ You can find it on Yummly and I highly recommend it. I did omit the peppers and onions from the recipe. It didn't really need them.See this image largerHey you! Yeah you! How's that diet going? LOL Sorry, had to post it. Can't get over their faces. Went walking at the park last Sunday. πŸ™ƒSee this image largerIt's starting to warm back up here in GA. Almost 80 today!! 🌑🌞 Excercise doesn't have to feel like excercise. Just go out and walk around and enjoy nature. πŸ™ƒSee this image largerCabbage Casserole tonight with cauliflour rice to keep it low carb. πŸ™ƒ After a month I am not missing bread, rice or pasta at all. Was feeding the ducks bread the other day and not once did I think that I wished I could eat some. It was about as appealing as bird food to me. πŸ˜…See this image largerHad a productive day cooking, cleaning up my mess and doing nails and posting obviously. πŸ˜‰ My cat layed down to watch me as I was finishing up my nails . I'm not sure what that face means tho? LOL πŸ˜‚See this image largerCan't have wraps so I just made a chicken fajita bowl with lots of toppings πŸ˜‹. Now I just need some sugar free chocolate chia seed pudding for dessert and I'm good. πŸ˜…See this image largerJust saw this online. Thinking about making a low carb meatball skillet. Decisions, decisions. πŸ€” LolSee this image largerMe: Who's is that? Daughter: It's you mom! Me: I wish I'd look like that again. Daughter : You would if you had kidneys and shed all that fluid. She is sweet 🍭🍬. And maybe one day. 😁 Never know.See this image larger@KENNYBARBIE12 Hey lady 😁. My nurse actually gave me that color. It's not something I would have bought but I am really enjoying it and had loads of fun playing with it. I named them my galaxy nails. LOL Reason I take pics is bc so far I've never created the same nails twice. πŸ™ƒSee this image larger@ALOFA0509 Haha, I didn't know if our favorite foodie would even see this. I would love to know how he eats so much and never gains an oz. We should all be so lucky.See this image largerLost some weight last night. Don't know how much yet until they remove my excess fluid at dialysis. But I had gained less than what I drank...so I know I've lost weight. It's a very slow process for me. I'll gladly take whatever it is. 😊 My daughter's abstract sculpture won second place at the art show today. I'm sure it feels like 1st to her. She worked hard.See this image largerEnded up losing 2 lbs today. It's not much but I'm happy with it. 😁 It's a whole lot better than my times I've lost zero. So happy...more please πŸ–’πŸ™. And here is my daughter's art work that didn't win a prize. It's my favorite tho. I can't do anything like that. No way.See this image largerTired of avocado and sunny side up eggs for breakfast. Haven't had smoked salmon in ages. So this was different. πŸ˜‹ Ginger the red fluffy cat was in a particular silly mood. My daughter's socks were rolled up into a ball and he grabbed them and ran off with them. πŸ˜‚ Then when he saw my breakfast it was time to bat at it. LOL I got my work out swatting back at him and keeping him away from the food.See this image largerHappy Easter Sparkies πŸ€— Hope everybody has a Safe and Happy weekend with good food choices and not to many temptations. I'm about to color some eggs with my girl. It's a pretty safe food to eat for me. They sure help me keep my protein levels up. Other patients have to drink or eat sugary protein drinks/bars. I don't have that problem as long as I have my eggs. Unlike what we've been told they don't affect my cholesterol either. Eating out does.See this image largerMeet one of my favorite people on this rock we call home. I inspire him to eat better. He inspires me to laugh more. Or make funny memes and have fun with his photos. πŸ˜‰ It's a win win. πŸ–’ He keeps talking about needing to lose weight but honestly I think he is perfect just the way he is. I like healthy not skinny. What do you say ladies?See this image largerHeck with dieting today! It's my baby girls birthday. Had to be celebrated with a German meal and of course cake. πŸ˜‹ Back to eating salads tomorrow. LOLSee this image largerIt's just hell when you can't eat pasta. Haha This is German Pasta and hell means light. It took me a minute to get it tho. I felt confused at first. Lol πŸ˜‚ Whole grain. Vegan. Organic. Hmm? Wonder if it'll taste like cardboard?See this image largerLeft over turkey magic πŸ˜‰πŸŽ».
