Tracking food

Monday, December 12, 2011

I must admit I thought one should eat specifick food
This is difficult as I live in Denmark so it is not the same food and some food is not in my dictionairy either Danish or American vedgetables
Now I found out I just can track what I actually eat rather than a suggested plan

No Understanding

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

My Love left a bag of salty stuff with a lot of fat in
just before me and went a place
I ate it and felt awful
When he came back I asked whether he would hide that kind of thing in the cubbard?
- Don´t you have any self discipline he asked
- No, that is why it is many years ago I bougth that kind of thing last time (flæskesvær)
- It is not acceptable that I have to hide it in the cubbard - You have to control yourself.-
We have lived together since January. The icebox has changed completely and my weight has gone up.

    So sorry to hear that your love seems to have no understanding. Don't give up though. Keep talking to your love about your lack of self control Maybe if you can talk to him about these issues frequently he will come to understand. When my hubby and I first got married he had no clue of what was a balanced meal and it has taken me a few years, but he is much better now. emoticon

On the playing ground and grown up Fun A and I challenge

Thursday, April 21, 2011

By my old place to live there was many playing grounds..
Modern playing grounds seems so advanced compared with my childhood ones.
I had been longing to try climbing around in those colorful places.
My love had explained he wouldn´t do it unless he was drunk
And I didn´t feel like doing it alone.
Then one day we took a walk together.
I ran over to a playing ground and started playing. He followed after some minutes hesitation. Then came a lady
I explained my love was drunk... emoticon
I must admit I feel it billion times more embarrassing to be drunk during daytime
Than sober climbing a playing ground! emoticon

    I think we should take every opportunity to play that presents itself to us so good for you for having fun on a playground. Why not!

    How fun! I agree with you about being embarrassed to be drunk during the daytime. I too would rather be sober climbing around on the play ground. Glad you got to finally play on the play ground.

    That is awesome! I think I am with you. I would rather be sober playing on the play ground than to be drunk during the daytime! What did your love think of what you said? How fun that you finally got to go play on it.

Fun - A and I challenge

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

I got mobbed in school so most fun was after school
In our cellar my uncle built a little house for us. We made puppets theater out through the windows. We made the fairytales ourselves and shifted to perform. It was children from our neighbour hood who came.
Hmm - outdoorlife is what I remember mostly. We had games where we ran a lot. We were cowboys and indians, played with balls. Climbed in trees. And I hoped in a rope almost every day. I had to do at least hundred.
Recently I saw it has been invented that you can recharge batteries by skipping.
When I was a teenager I did gymnastics in my bedroom. Not for fun but because I wanted to look good.
The reason why I stopped was because my grandfather´s wife complained of the noise downstairs where she slept when visiting.
I stopped skipping because I felt it would be ridicouleaus for a grown-up. The same about climbing trees.
Nowadays I wonder why grown-ups don´t play. That would be much more fun playing tic tac toe and trhrowing snow balls etc. than sitting talking.
A part from from the fear of being ridicouleaus is the fact that many of my friends are in a vey bad condition.
Well I have possibilities to move - also together with people. I am -passively- a member of a rowing club. emoticon

    Adults SHOULD play more. Seize the opportunity because now is the time in your life when you get to decide for yourself what fun should be!

    Most adults are way too serious! It's sad that we lose our imagination and playfulness at such a young age! I say go for it, and act silly and childlike! And I'm glad to see that you recently did (on the playground from your latest blog!) emoticon

    I would love to find a tree to climb. The problem with getting older, is my body doesn't always do what I want it to. I do sometimes skip, its quite fun actually. I probably look goofy, but I dont care :)

    You're so true. Adults don't know how to play anymore. I did when my kids were young, always playing with them at the play ground, snow ball fights, etc. But I just do other things for fun now.

    I agree with you 100%. As adults we have lost some of the ability to play. We haven't lost the ability to dream though.

    A rowing club sounds like fun as well as a good workout. There are rowing teams here and I see them out on a small section they blocked off from Lake Erie. They are out when there is still ice on the water; that is amazing dedication!

    No matter what kind of day I have had I always look foward to going home so I can play. I play with my kids every evening before dinner. We have snowball fights in the winter and play ball in the warmer months. I am somewhat of a big kid with them but I have fun.

Some good things about my childhood - I and A challenge

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Humor is an important thing I got from my parents especially my father.
We have laughed a lot throughout my childhood. And we can see absurd things everywhere.. In society and in other peoples habits, and we laugh at our selves.
This ability has helped me through bad periods where I have been maltreated in my adulthood.
We travelled about every summer vacation. This gave the knowledge of other peoples background and the curiosity of different ways of living.
And songs. My mothers favorite is The Easter parade. And you are my sunshine..
All 3 of us has learned or tried to learn playing a music instrument.
Gardening together.
My line: Better laugh at nothing than nothing to laugh at - is absolutely also inspired from my family gatherings.

    Even when my father was dying he made a joke and teased us to encourage us.
It was a big loss when he passed away.
Yes Thank you for the sweet story about - You are my sunshine-
-my only sunshine you make me happy when clouds are grey-
Please don´t take my sunshine away
Next challenge in Inspire and Aspire will be playing.
Grown ups play to little. At least I do. Maybe my fat is because of that..

    Thank you for sharing your memories! I absolutely LOVE "you are my sunshine". I sang it to my daughter when she was a baby, a toddler and sometimes now even though she will soon be in kindergarten. A couple years ago she gave me a card with that song on it. LOVE IT!

Our memories DO shape us!

    This sounds like you know the value of laughter for those who laugh and those who hear others laughing. As an adult, I know that when I'm really tickled about something I laugh so hard my eyes water and I can't even talk. Those moments only happen when I'm with someone else. Laughing isn't much fun when it's done by oneself. Thanks for the chuckle today!

    What wonderful memories you have to help you through the low spots in your life! I am finally learning to laugh a little more at the ripe young age of 60! How much I have missed for the past years by not having that as a part of my life.
