This picture shows Vanessa, Roberts daughter on her Dragon boat racing team in Salem, OR last summer. this is something i am trying to make possible for me to try this year as a challenge. We're waiting to hear if we will be accepted on a team.
Yesterday we spent the whole afternoon and evening with our good friends Jerry and donna. They invited us over for lunch. there before us was all kinds of yummy health foods. (well mostly healthy) There was different kinds of thinly sliced meat, whole wheat croissants, stuffed mushrooms, 3 bean salad, pickles and other good stuff. I did ahve half servings of dessert. Dainty candies that were so rich i can still taste them today. Donna gave me some Diabetic oatmeal cookies her friend gave her but i believe she didn't care for them and I ahd 2 last night before bed and my Fasting blood sugar was 121!!! A good number for me. I'm asking for the resipe. i don't taste anything sweet in them.
We're celebrating hristmas eve on Sunday with Roberts kids. So we were out shopping today. I bought something for myself. A large bucket of Almonds. Almonds is my food of choice to add in aotmeal and my salads instead of croutons it's the protien and nitrients i go form See wht I've learned from my friends on SP?
I'm not doing new years Resolutions but I have 3 major goals:
1. reduce my artificial sweetener intake.
2. Cardio exercise at least 30 minutes at least 5 days a week.
3. water, water, water... at least 8 8 oz. cups but most days i go over but some days i go lower.
I'm motivated to get my big butt moving and hope all of you are getting motivated too. I'm not doing impossible goals cuz they can just be broken they need to be ones I can keep.
After all the snow melted and I finally had the OPTION to leave my home rather than stay in We ahd a new blanket of 2" of snow that fell during the night and this morning. It was pretty. It has stayed. It is not hard to drive it. But it was nice enough to make Oregon look Postcard perfect on our outiing today.
if everyone in the word wished PEACE to all and spread PEACE what a wonderful world this would be.
Peace be to you all.
