Dancing in the Rain.......

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass; it is about dancing in the rain.

Loving you DH Wayne-- I am learning how to dance in the rain.

    Good reminder, I take too much time waiting for the storm to pass, maybe I should start dancing more. emoticon

    Vivian, IAJOE, and I are talking about meeting up to walk soon. Would you like to walk with us? We haven't quite figured out when or where, but I think it would be great!

    Amen to that! Imagine how unhappy we'd be if we lived our lives to please others?

    you are so RIGHT ON.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine.

Do what is best for you regardless.... emoticon

Smiling and doing everything on my list of to do and then threw in a few laughs--forced maybe--found some real smiles from children laughing and playing , like kids will do.
I am soooooo grateful for children.

I am grateful for all that was and all that is to be.

Whats this all about??

Sunday, October 09, 2011

emoticonI have been going out with friends a lot to eat---Like yesterday we ate at a place at the river--nice people--I ordered a salmon salad---good choice, no dressing I like it that way--then I avoided the chips and salsa---THEN I ended up eating SIX tortillas!!! Yes, they were small -but dang!!!!!!!!!!! at least 600 more calories than needed---then a friend insisted on treating us all to desert.

I know that I was having such a comfortable time that I let my guard down. I guess with practice I will be able to combine fun and not forget the eating well aspect of life.

I also went to a birthday party last night--it was fun---then I had a small piece of cake--but about midnight I had another LARGE piece of serious chocolate cake! No alcohol, no extra anything else
but dang that great big piece of cake was the one that I did NOT need.

ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER LESSON LEARNED-----I am grateful that I have SP and my friends here to help me think it out--Next time and each time after that it will get better and I will be wiser in my ways---- emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I've done the same thing. Healthy all day, then a period of insanity! I am my biggest stumbling block when eating out, especially when alone. I eat healthier when I eat out with others because they are usually careful about what they eat and I don't want to look like a pig. In this case, it's good to care what others think!

    At least you started with something healthy! emoticon

Make a plan for next time you are out. Practice responding to the things you know your friends are going to say. Sometimes I do this in the mirror just to remind myself that it's not mean for me to say no to something I don't want. Sometimes it's easier to say "I'm just not in the mood" or "I'm really full" than it is to say "I'm watching what I'm eating" (because that is inevitably followed with lots of "you don't need to lose weight" and "one bite won't hurt you"). Hang in there!!

Of course, if you DID want to eat the chocolate cake, cut yourself some slack! At least you didn't eat the whole thing!

    Sometimes I have the same thing - the first half of the day, I do pretty well but the second half, binging, haha. Once a while fall out from the wagon is ok, it's a sort of your rest day AND lesson learned for future :D

    I am with you, it is hard. Problem it as society has made it acceptable for portions and food to equate with celebration. Makes it hard to go out with friends because then they always say "what's wrong". Stand firm and pick what you can control everyday. The rest will follow!

    I've done the same thing. As you said, lesson learned and hopefully you'll do better next time. Just get back on the wagon and keep making healthy choices.
