Tuesday is poker! and other stuff...

Tuesdays are great around here with canasta and poker too!  A whole day of friends, friendly games, and tonight is pizza night at poker.  We do that twice a year.  I'll have two slices of cheese pizza for 10 points and a big salad.  I remember the last time I ate pizza I felt awful afterward but I love it so much I'll do it anyway.  Maybe I'll only have one slice.  And a bigger salad.  Yeah, that's what I'll do and I'll still get to eat it and I won't feel bad.  

Then when I get home I watch Covert Affairs and try to see if White Collar is on again after, sometimes it is, otherwise I have to wait to see it on Video on Demand.  It takes a day or so to show up.  I've been in tv heaven lately what with Big Brother, Leverage, Burn Notice...  So many shows I love.  Honestly I have not been watching the Olympics.  Every time I try it's just many many commercials and commentary that seems to tick me off and soccer, tennis, water polo, stuff I don't like.  

I wonder if I could play water polo in my pool?  I'd have to use my noodle for a horse and get a big stick and a beach ball, hmmm.  I bet I could get another medal! Ha!

Yesterday the duck hit 100 pounds lost!  Isn't that amazing!  He has worked so hard and looks so good. I'll get a photo for you when I see him later this week, you'll see.  And I hit 59 pounds myself.  On the button.  236 sticks of butter gone from my fat a$$!

Have you ever heard of "negative calorie foods"?  I was wondering if this was true and it seems it is.  At least in the case of celery.  I have also heard that lettuce, grapefruit, kelp, cucumbers and even onions and pickles are negative calorie foods.  

What about ice cubes and water with ice?  Yup, though not foods, they burn calories to process in the body.  I've been busy on the Internet, haven't I?  Drinking eight glasses of cold water burns 70 calories.  That means every ten days 700 calories.  Now we're getting somewhere!  And that, my friends, is a great reason to drink your water.

Have a lovely Tuesday, I know I will...


  1. Love the water hint. Never thought about it like that !
    Bee, besides being so funny your very helpful !

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I don't really get to watch tons of the Olympics, wish I could but you could do what I do when I watch, hit the mute button! I enjoy it much better that way,lol. It's around 100 degrees here with no AC today, I am drinking my water for sure! Have a great day Bee, hugs :)

  3. Haven't watched any Olympic stuff. Didn't have any tv at all in the skilled nursing place, unless you wanted to go watch Drooling For Dollars..... I'm not heartless, really. I just didn't belong there. The gal in the bed next to mine kept setting off the emergency alarms - at night. She was mean, too. Yelled and hollered at me. No know she didn't know what she was doing but good grief. Miserable place.
    Supposed to get my staples out soo. Tired of the darned walker mainly because my hands hurt... Sorry for the crabbiness, I'll find my good side again.

  4. Yes, I have heard of negative calorie foods! Ruby Red pink grapefruit juice was my evening drink with dinner the last time I did this. 19 years ago. Unfortunately, I now have acid reflux which means grapefruit juice of any color is no good. Oy. That's OK though. I like water. And other stuff. Like wine.

    WTG, Chuckie Duck! I think I lost 112 or 114 pound in 15 months the last time. Of course I was only 39 and could exercise more than I can now. I'm hoping to be able to exercise more as the weight starts coming off.

    Commercials and me? Well, you know we just don't get along.

    Have a funtabulous day today! And me, too! big hugs xoxo

  5. Well done to you and Chuck on the weight loss, that's very impressive!

    I am getting to watch some of the Olympics, the bits I like - swimming, diving, athletics, show jumping, weightlifting - sounds like I'm watching it all day doesn't it? LOL

  6. Yeah for duck!

    I like big brother! I wouldnt last more than one week in that house with those crazies

  7. You are a font of knowledge and good news. Congrats to you and the duck on the weight loss. Definitely need a new OCD photo!

    Big hugs, honey...

  8. Tell the Duck we kitties are giving him a five tail salute! We are all furry proud of both of you!
    Fuzzy hugs

  9. Congratulations to the Duck and to you, too! I raise my water glass in a toast to you both. Hugs!

  10. I've not watched any of the Olympics either. I'll read about it in the paper. I HATE commercials. HATE commercials.

    I didn't realize that the Duck was losing weight too. Wow, way to go for the both of you.

    I need to eat more negative calorie foods.

    Have a terrific day. Big hugs. :)

  11. I think drinking eight glasses of cold water would burn more calories than that! of course, it depends on how far away from the bathroom you are! hahahaha

  12. Buongiorno!

    One slice pizza and the biggest salad, or as you feel!
    Wow for Duck, you both do very good!!!

    Here it's always awfully hot, no rain, many damages to the agriculture!

    Have a great Tuesday!!!
    Big hugs!

  13. Happy Tuesday!!!! xoxoxoxoxo - your Sammie Pie

  14. Excellent landmark with the weight loss! Keep up the good work.

    I imagine you could play water polo, but I think you're going to need more people in that pool to do so.

  15. Hooray on the weight loss for both you and duck!!!
    I love reading about your daily life and thoughts on all sort of things... even if I don't comment all the time :D
    Happy Tuesday.

  16. Interesting info on the H20.

    Congrats to The Duck on losing all the weight. And of course congrats to you as well ~ wow!

    I hope the pizza and salad were as delicious as you anticipated!

    Have a nice evening, Bee.

  17. Bee, I am thrilled for you and Duck. How wonderful. I know it's been hard work. You have each other, that helps too. xoxoxo, Susie

  18. Wow look at you and Chuck go, so proud of you both. Thanks also for always being so bright and cheerful. Your positive attitude is a great example for all of us.

    Big Hugs,


  19. Good for you both, guys! Doing so good with your weight loss :)
    I never heard of negative calories, just zero calories so you can eat as much as you want.
    Hugs from Ohio,
