    Good morning Missy! My friend in Vermont got 8 inches of snow; did Rhode Island get any?

    Sara - that walking to work sounds good! Keep at it while you can, before the heat comes. ⭐️

    Yesterday I did an eating behavior that I remember discussing in Weight Watchers years ago: continuing to eat something that doesn't taste good and isn't worth the points/calories.

    I bought a package of sweet corn at the grocery store. It looked so nice. Four ears of corn per package, already mostly peeled.
    Well, I cooked it, and started eating the first piece, and I realized that it had absolutely NO flavor. (No surprise considering what time of year it is). I had put butter and even some salt on it, but it wasn't enjoyable.
    The bad behavior was eating all four pieces, somehow hoping that one of them would taste good.

    I should have thrown all of them away, but I didn't.

    Good Morning! RI I guess got a dusting in parts but not my area. The huskies felt left out lol. And it’s tough to throw away food. Think a lot of us have been brought up to finish what’s on your plate, let no food go to waste mindset. I would have a hard time throwing it away myself.

    Happy 4-20 Y'all~~

    I don't partake, but I think that it's fun to have a "pot day".
    Goodness-- if I did indulge, I'd be bigger than a house, because back in my school days it would give me an endless case of the munchies.

    Sara - ham is wonderful and sleep is wonderful!

    Waves to all who stop by today 🌴

    Lana

    I didn’t partake either, never have. It’s funny that usually I hear or see something about 4/20 but it was relatively not a thing this year. Idk 🤷🏼‍♀️ maybe I was just to busy to notice lol.

    Good evening,

    Started to make cookies for church/work then realized I was looking at the wrong recipe and had to double the right recipe so 30 cookies becomes 60 or so. I am babysitting the oven right now.

    Spent afternoon in church kitchen making dinners. Got at least 4k today which considering I really havent gone anywhere is pretty decent.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    I guess the more cookies to go around? That’s a lot of dinners made!

    Well, one eye is open ☀️

    Sara - I admire your energy and desire to bake and also to volunteer at the church kitchen! Good for you!

    Today I am having a "therapy session" with a bunch of baby goats. I've never done this before.

    Awe baby goats. Is it like goat yoga?

    Good evening,

    Goats are adorable what kind of therapy are you doing? Weight training? Learning to laugh at them? Will you be getting a goat?

    Took 3 dozen plus cookies to work. Made 1 dozen for church and ate the last dozen - considering I doubled the batch by accident and usually I eat half of them, this is an improvement. Getting my 5k every day.

    Got sprinkled on walking to work and missed a major down pour going home. Phew.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    That is improvement what kind of cookies did you make? I could easily plow through a dozen of cookies especially chocolate chip.

    Happy Friday Y'all~~

    The goat thing yesterday was cute. A young lady showed me into a certain goat area where there were three adult female goats, two ready to give birth any day now, and a half dozen baby goats.
    She gave me a bunch of carrot strips and some sort of grain, which made me very much the center of attention.
    I just sat there on a bench and enjoyed having the little ones climb on me and around me--they are too young to eat any treats. The little ones were quite vocal at no one in particular.
    It was fun to do because it was just something different for me. I might do it again next year.

    I hope that everyone has a good weekend!

    Good evening,

    I get posts on FB with baby goats every so often they are fun to watch - I am glad you had a great time Lana.

    Cookies were peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal - recipe on allrecipes.

    Tired and although its early - find me snoring on the couch at the cabana club. It may be the 5500 steps I got today and I am usually wiped by Friday.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good evening,

    Got 5k today. Bought 2 chairs from hairdresser to watch movies etc with. Found my car could fit them both at once.

    Went to International store and bought all kinds of cookies/snacks with the bananas I had on my list..... My bag wasnt full enough I guess.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Hi everyone! I’m a serial starter who is a qualified weight management practitioner AND nutrition coach specialising in food as medicine… it’s pretty ridiculous that I’ve spent so many years talking food and weight that I’ve managed to mess my brain and motivation right up. I’m 20+ kg (45lbs) overweight and really just need to be part of something with likeminded people who know the drill. Anywho I don’t know how active I’ll be, but I hope you don’t mind me tagging along? I’m about 91kg (200lbs) currently.

    Good morning all~~

    Welcome to CruskitOFairy 🧚🏻‍♀️
    Aw. We don't have Cruskits here in U.S. that I know of. Dang.
    Stop into our virtual Cabana Club as often as you can 🌴

    Sara - you scored two chairs! Good for you. Glad that you got so many bananas! 🤣 International stores really are a "candy store" of goodies. Heck, you might have Cruskits there.

    My achilles tendon (or whichever sub-tendon) had been getting better, but now it's twangy. It often feels as if it's in the wrong place, and then snaps (fairly painlessly) into place.
    Tomorrow I will be making the phone calls to get an appointment with whatever doctor can see me about it.

    Waves to all who stop in later on 👋🏻

    Good evening,

    Decent weekend here nice weather and got to relax today.

    I offered to be a respite for neighbor today -even offered to make cookies at 2am - considering I am usually snoring at that hour this could be interesting and perhaps dangerous.....

    Week starts again but boss has day off - what a nice long weekend for me.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Did 11k steps today but my intake was atrocious. I’m really having a hard time regulating what I eat. It’s like I’m not even trying - I’ll acknowledge that I’m starting a binge, or just eating mindlessly… but continue to do so. I don’t know why and I can’t seem to stop myself - it’s like I don’t even care anymore - but I do? I know all the mindful eating tricks, I know calories, I know all the tricks for beating cravings… yet I won’t seem to let myself try? Sorry for the random blurt.

    It’s Anzac Day here so we got up at 5am and went to the dawn service down on the beach which was lovely.

    Lana, I hope your Achilles feels better soon! I get a similar sensation of tendons snapping or ‘twanging’ in my neck and it sucks, so hopefully you get some answers!

    Tracy - thinking of you, with all of your running around and appointments. I hope that yesterday went well.

    Lana
    Thank you for thinking of me, Lana!

    Sorry for the delay in responding. The week leading to the show was crazy. We are in NOLA now. Today is the final day of setup. Show is tomorrow through Thursday. 10 hour days on our feet. We fly home Friday afternoon.

    The appointment went better than I expected. A world renowned Rheumatologist supports my natural treatments! Taking vitamin D and wearing amber. I've been doing both for two months and my pain is minimal. I will follow up in a year.

    Hope everyone is doing well! Spring fever abounds here.

    Do the best you can in your situation.

    Hello to All ☀️

    Cruskit - that is nice that they had a service on the beach.
    I hope that you find the answer to your eating neediness or wanting to binge. 🤗 Big hugs.

    Sara - Yes, I remember that Ms. M. is not in the building today. Good for you.
    Did you end up being up at 2AM and making cookies?

    Time to get into the shower, hoping to stay on schedule today--I've set out a lot to get done today 💪🏻

  • Got Boyfriend off to his new job, though I had to drive him cause his rescue med for sleep had him hung over a bit. Fortunately this is in the same place he was working when I met him and first lived with him, so it's all good, and I can get there and back pretty well without too much grief.

    I'm housecleaning since he's not around, though it is getting limited by the effects of a rainy day on my arthritic feet.

    But I'm down a pound and it's quesadillas for lunch, so I'm not doing too badly.

    Hey there Tracy - I was writing this morning at the same time you were posting so I am just now seeing it. It is so great that you are having minimal pain! Whatever works is what you do 👍🏻
    Trusting that the rest of the time in NOLA will go well for you, even though those are indeed long hours to be on one's feet.
    🌴The Cabana Boys will come for an ad hoc foot massage 🌴

    Alexandra 👋🏻 A different team of Cabana Boys are coming to help you with the housework and your feet 🌴

    Good evening,

    Tracy, I love that you have a dr who is willing to think outside the box.

    I am waiting for food to be baked in toaster oven and as I am falling asleep - nap right around the corner. New Mgr will be reviewing our 4/10 days . I dont mind them except they are exhausting.

    Wishing all a good night. Stay safe and sane out there.

    Good morning all~~

    Alexandra - Congratulations on that loss!

    Sara - It must be nice to have that Wednesday to yourself in the middle of the week, but not worth it if the 10 hour days leave you a mess. Hugs!

    I have an early appointment today. Time to jump into the shower. Jump - ha!

    Hey everyone! Another 11k steps down today - took the kiddo to the zoo. Intake was high, but in all honesty could have been worse.
    Is anyone in Australia or are you all in the US?
