BABYSITTING TODAY! DAY 293

Thursday, November 04, 2010

LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!

I am babysitting today for my 1 year old grandson who had surgery last week to correct a birth defect. He is very good and seems to be okay with it so far. Right now he is watching baby cartoons while I use their laptop. It's rainy today so won't get out. I hope he takes a nap later as I would too! It might be a long day but I have an afghan I'm crocheting and books.

Last night I worked on my current quilt, the underground railroad quilt which is based on quilt codes used to guide the slaves when they escaped. There is some debate as to whether it is true or not but I've had fun making it for my friend Pat.

The diet is kaput. I'm sorry I succumbed to candy on halloween but not that bad. Haveing trouble returning to any sort of system. Too much going on. I have 2 funerals to attend tomorrow and saturday. Bummer. And they've asked me to bring food on Friday to that funeral. A lot of deaths this year. I keep thinking I am going back to WW in person but haven't so far. Here it is Nov and TG around the corner and Christmas after that. SLOW DOWN TIME! Goes too fast. I'm still working on emptying boxes in the house anid getting window tmts. Later.

    Why is it that Halloween seems to be the start of a spiraling downfall for so many of us...with Thanksgiving and Christmas and all the stuff in between...we need to embrace our family and friends at these times and not food...you can stay on the program...life is always going to get in the way so give it a good kick in the behind and stay healthy!

PLAYING CATCH UP! DAY 291

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

LEARN TO BE CALM AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE HAPPY!

We got back from our trip yesterday and we had a marvelous time! Great to see the grandkids. FSU lost the football game but oh, well. We had a good time anyway. We were in Williamsburg Fri and Sat and enjoyed learning the history of our country. Seemed so appropriate since today is election day! Already voted and I hope that the country moves away from the current climate in D.C. right now. Last night we went to see our other son and his wife and our grandchildren and to pick up our dog. We came home with an extra dog somehow. Katie is the silliest dog I've ever seen. She looks like a hot dog on toothpicks for legs. I've often said I would take her so maybe she will stay. Panda was very happy to see us.
Later.

    I hope you stayed away from the candy, you didn't mention it, so were there some indiscretions? I know you made some good choices. If not, lets get back on track. Glad you had a great time.

I'm off today for the weekend and I will be sensible in my eating and forego the candy. No candy. Read my lips! Later.

NO MORE CANDY! DAY 285

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT FOR THE WORLD!

After 2 months of garbage eating and having handfuls of candy, I've decided to ax the candy. I am off this weekend to see my grandchildren, go to a football game, go to Williamsburg and back to a Halloween party with my son, wife and grandsons. I vow to give up candy for the duration and afterward. This is the only way I won't binge out on candy, to publicly avow that I've given it up! I had none yesterday even though we have candy corn, m & m's and choc covered raisins in the house. I know that if one piece passes my lips, it is all over. Woe is me if my grandson comes home with almond Joy or Mounds. I would confiscate all the coconut treats.
I know the answer for some is to throw it out of the house but I prefer to leave it and avoid it. I CAN do this once I set my mind to it and my mind is set. In addition, I am watching what I eat and vowing to add more fruit and veggies to my meals and snacks.
So there, that's my word and I'm sticking to it! Have a good day!

    When I was growing up, my parents kept candy and junk out of the house and as I became an adult, I started binging on candy because I could!!! Getting sick on candy a while ago, I don't have any cravings any more but I know that if I have one piece, I'll eat the whole bag!!! Good for you for recognizing your weakness and doing something about it!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

What is it about candy? Is it the kid in us? Thanks for the post and here's to kicking the habit. Right now my Halloween candy is in the trunk of my car unopened and that's the way it's going to stay no matter who wants some. I transport my laptop in the trunk and see the offender at least twice daily. Have a wonderful trip to see your family...sounds terrific.
cheers
