LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!
My loyal readers must get tired of hearing me starting over again. How boring can I be, so positive and then not sticking to it. I was looking through the book shelf yesterday and found Dean Ornish's Book, EAT MORE, WEIGH LESS from 1987. I didn't even know I had it. Must have come from my mother-in-law when she moved. Anyway, I pulled it out and will start looking it over. I'm always looking for new ideas.
Right now, I am going to concentrate on getting my fruit and veggie intake up. Yesterday we went to Denny's for lunch with my son, his wife, granddaughter and new grandson, Grammie and my hubby. I thought I would get breakfast but when I looked over the menu, they had some new sizzling dishes filled with peppers, onion, tomato, mushroom, potato, sausage and 2 fried eggs. I ordered that and requested they use a minimum amount of butter. They don't have olive oil. I think everyone was embarrassed at the table but I did enjoy my meal. There was only 1 small sausage and I ate that, all the veggies and a few potatoes. Brought the 2 eggs home and ended up throwing them out this morning and brought most of the potatoes homes. In spite of the fact there was butter used, I enjoyed the dish and all those veggies. And we had lots of veggies for dinner too. So I was back on track after such a wild saturday.
Today I have asparagus that must be cooked and corn on the cob. And I took out hamburger patties so that is dinner. I'm going to roast the asparagus as there is quite a bit of it and have it for lunch too.
Today is also doctor day where my mother-in-law and I visit our shrink and pick up our prescriptions for meds. I ran out of one pill last week and it was one for a small amount of thyroid boost. I may try to not go back on it as I don't think it does much. But I'll have a prescripton on hand if I need it. Not going through what I went through in January. My mother-in-law is really having health problems. Retaining fluid is a big concern as she has conjestive heart failure and the fluid builds up and she has trouble breathing. Hubby had 2 full afternoons last week taking her to 2 different doctors. This is my week, shrink and haircut. We go to the same hairdresser to make it easy.
We all enjoyed the baby at lunch yesterday. He is so funny. After he ate, he just cooed and laughed and smiled. Then we handed him around the table and he laughed and danced. I wish I could see my other new grandson in North Carolina. He's cute too in a different sort of way. I had so much fun with my granddaughter last week taking her to Art Camp and Build-a-Bear. And she loved it too. Wish me luck on my journey. I told my husband NO KLONDIKE BARS or ICE CREAM in this house! None, Nada, no way. Later!
