This has been a busy day........Faith formation meeting for 1 1/2 hours.....to plan ahead for next month's classes....2nd graders' classes, chiropractor adjustment, grocery errands, stop to see a friend for coffee, and a hair trim. It is a balmy 28.....the warmest it has been all month!!!!!
I was so tempted at our local Papa Joes.......by the Wild Mushroom soup.....I have had it before, and it is to die for........soooooooo yummy, and I asked the guy serving it, if he liked it, and he said, ya it is my favorite, and I said I really like it to, but I can't trust myself to keep it in my house.......even when I think it with a little more water..........he asked if I wanted a sample, and I said sure, thanks......and that is ALL I had.........a teaser!!!!!!! I DID want to buy it, but I DID NOT!!!!!!! I walked away thanking him and smiling..........that soup is soooooo good.......it has an assortment of mushrooms........all fresh, but it is in a creamy base, so I am sure it is loaded with fat and calories.......the teaser hit the spot though!!!!! All their soups are made right there!!!!!!

WOW.......was at the gastroenterology clinic all morning........hubby had his colonoscopy..and everything is ok.....couple of polyps being sent to the lab, but all in all......it went well.....I watched the inauguration, or part of if anyway on
TV......Did you all know that Aretha Franklin is from MI?????? Detroit....Motown.......
My day is going well, keeping positive, upbeat....even though I am once again not getting spark mail.....that bums me out....I have to go to all the teams I am to see what is going on........so not sure how often I will be doing that since hubby is home.....cannot drive for the rest of the day due to the anesthesia, so I brought my new book, Does this Clutter make my BUTT look FAT by Peter Walsh.....there is a lot of hi-lighting I am dong and will give a quote for the next few days:
Pg. 41......Most of all, you've relinquished power to your own bad habits.
Relinquished......such a harsh word, but it is true.....let's turn those bad habits into good habits!!!!

I blew it yesterday......no, that is not a positive word, is it???????? Hubby and I went to the movies and saw Gran Torino........excellent.......with Clint Eastwood, except for the language, it really did have a meaning. Anyway, I decided to have the popcorn for lunch........hubby too, my handfuls were more and bigger than his!!!! OK, I am only human......forgive myself and today is a new day.......I did not blog this yesterday cuz I felt kind of guilty about doing what I did........I did bank some calories for it, but that is really not a healthy way to go......and that really is not my normal lunch..........
It is a new day, a new chance, a new attitude!
The future depends on what we do in the present........Mahatma Ganadhi
So, today is a new day........let's make it a healthy one.......changing our attitudes!

It is not only cold but snowing now too.......we are under a storm warning till tomorrow some time..........hubby took me grocery shopping this morning.....needed skim milk, eggs and lettuce....the snow just crunches when you walk on it....17 degrees is the high!!!!!!!! I am getting cabin fever.....want to go to Hawaii so badly!!!!! That is a dream (will not come true too soon though). We were there in 1989.....when we lived in Lake Oswego, OR......before we moved to New Hampshire and Bill's folks live in Spokane, so we stayed a couple days with his folks and left the two little ones with them, and off just the two of us went......oh, so long ago!!!!! All right, back to reality........I am working on a jigsaw puzzle.....do not feel like organizing today......did a lot yesterday, but I am not eating junk. I don't have much anyway, so that is good!!!!!!
I liked this quote from Rosanne Barr (arnold):
The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it!!!
I hope you are feeling the power that you have within you.....to say YES to the healthy good-for-you foods and NO to unhealthy artery clogging junk!!!!

I am really getting myself organized......and it feels so good..........haven't had a chance to read more of the book about the clutter and my fat butt...LOL....anyway, it just feels good to look around and see a lot of things in place or tossed out!!!!!!! I did get 3 huge bags ready for another charity group.
It is soooooooo cold here today; I think the HIGH was 11.......it was -9 this AM!!!!! But the sun has been shining, so that's nice!
I am hoping all of you are really asking yourself.....before you take that bite of whatever it is you are about to eat.............DO I REALLY want this? Is it good for me, and can I just wait another 15 minutes to see if I really want it!!!! I too am working on that one!!!!!!
Here is a quote from Vincent Lombardi:
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will. It IS true, isn't it??? Ya, it speaks to me too!!!!!!
