    Great list. I do like the 10 min walk before eating. I should try that.

Friday 12.12.14 TGIF!

Friday, December 12, 2014

Today is Friday!

We try to have fish on Friday, not because it's FRY DAY, but because F in fish goes with the F in Friday. Just makes it easier.

I usually let my husband get the fish. He's good in the food hunt and I just enjoy watching him hunt it. I like watching him hunt more than I like to hunt. I'll go for shrimp every time. However, that has some inherent problems for me, like should I fry it, crust it in something, tempura it, and I think anyone can see where this is going, the correct answer to all of them is, No! Good think I like them cooked and cold with a great homemade dip that is low in salt, sugar, and fat - almost nonexistent in those three items.

But somehow I do not think we will have shrimp tonight, but I might luck out. My husband's sister and her husband are here with us tonight. She is vegetarian and I have learned, she can find food she will eat quite easily without my stressing over it. Her husband, a total opposite will usually go for steak and his wallet can handle it, too.

Our wallet does not handle it as well and I feel like my husband is swayed heavily by the BIL, but we make do so I don't stress over it until I see it going way out of hand. I would just as soon have dinner at home, cooked here, so I know what's in it. They prefer to eat out, I need to know what is in my food, even though I am still not a good food tracker. I just figure without knowing what I'm eating, I can't even guess at a healthy meal.

Have a great one.

    I think having fish on Friday is a great custom. I need to eat more fish. I love it. I don't eat out a lot for the same reason - I can't fathom how they make their food so unhealthy when what I make at home has such different numbers. I could not afford to serve guests steak at home let alone treat them to it in restaurant. We are frugal when we eat out. We go Dutch when we go out with friends.

    Glad he enjoys picking out the fish. I tend to stick with a salad when eating out just because I can see exactly what's in it and I control the dressing. Even vegetables are dangerous because of the butter and bacon they add. emoticon

The Numbers Collector!

Wednesday, December 03, 2014

I collect numbers. I am not a numbers cruncher! Although I have crunched many numbers in the past. Too bad numbers crunching isn't the same as exercise! I'd have the best abs around. What I found, though, is that numbers crunching is actually the opposite of crunching to great abs - is that really possible? You sit far to long crunching those numbers into some budget or bank account in order to get them all to come up where you need them, maybe not where you want them, but at least where you need them.

I've decided collecting numbers is a little easier, although the same results is true. You sit to long trying to collect them.

I'm going to go collect a good meal instead! Have a great one! emoticon

    Love it-do NOT love trying to make all those numbers work together to achieve what needs to be achieved, though.

    I've got a data driven mind, so lots of numbers are bouncing around in there.

But I know what you mean. Numbers required by someone else, like at work, are no fun.

Hang in there!
