I will be working both jobs today and then tomorrow I will be satellite cook as well as cooking for the seniors. My day will begin at 5 am to work by six and then off at one thirty.. Then three thirty at church make coffee, prep salad. off at nine. Just too busy to get anything done. I just wish I could sit down a get myself a resume. I need one job with enough hours and all year.

I do not have the energy to do more than just work. I am not walking as much or with such zest. I want to get back into the spirit but right now i cannot sleep at night and am catching up on it during the day.
When I am too sleepy I do not function well.

The picture is me at the Grand Canyon in 2007. I want to go there and make out resumes and walk in the beauty of God's creation.
But maybe I can settle for the beauty of creation here at the corner park.

    I am there with you - with extra hours and stress at work I am just too pooped many days... We are walking in the Bay to Breakers - we have a SP team and rally there - I think I am up for it... emoticon

I love the Grand Canyon - look forward to going back some day... hope your weekend is grand! emoticon

    There are not enough hours in the day to do everything unfortunately. But I can say that is a pretty picture and look at that view - amazing. You will be able to do this

Had a great Saturday

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Well I drove into San Francisco. Went to the house and got to feed the baby elevenzez meal. Then got to sit on the floor and watch her play until she caught sight of dad out the window climbing the scaffolding.
So then all she wanted to do is watch da. But it was so cold so we sat in the window box while the kitty screamed to go out.
All in all a perfect day.

Well oh me, oh my, oh you.

Friday, May 07, 2010

So I am going to go to San Francisco and visit with foster grand baby.
D-I-L is going to work and son is trying hard to get the house painted.
So I must " sacrifice" my time and play with baby.
You all wish me the best of days and I cannot think of a better way to spend the day.

Slow down

Saturday, May 01, 2010

I want to slow down with my eating but, I tend to skip meals and then am so hungry I bolt them down. Not a very dainty image.
I still default to old and not healthy habits.
How do you reset your default?

    Practice mindful eating. It's about savoring each bite, each bean. Practice by eating one raisin or one nut, but take the time to look at the food before you pop it in your mouth. See if it has a fragrance. Think about how you imagine it will taste, what the texture will be. Finally, bite into it and TASTE it. Chew it SLOWLY, enjoying the way the taste changes. Some foods only release their full flavor after being chewed until they are liquified. When you swallow it, enjoy the sensation of it moving toward your stomach. Then take a sip of water and breathe and be thankful that you had this bite of food. I find, when I actually take time to eat this way, that I only eat about 1/3 as much food, and am fully satisfied.
P.S. Sorry - I had already posted this note before I saw that you are already on the Mindful Eating team. I'm embarrassed that I went into such detail to someone who already knows what to do - tried to delete but it won't let me.

    I agree - eat more smaller meals - it is more satisfying than starving in between. And sometimes we need to eat more calories instead of less as long as it is spaced and not eaten all at one time... emoticon

    How about trying to eat smaller meals throughout the day rather than three big ones. You would maintain your energy level, and you won't be starving yourself. It is hard to break old habits but give it a try!

    Remember to drink in between every bite...that slows you down, even when you are starving...but the best advise really is to never let yourself get to that point of feeling starved...It is funny...you commented today on my blog about sleep (thanks)...My problem is that I don't know how to reprogram my sleep habits (so we both need to change a habit)...the best advise I got from someone is to "just do it"...not the easiest thing to do, but really, sometimes it is the only thing to do. So, what I am saying is that you know you shouldn't let yourself get hungry, so don't. Have lots of healthy snacks in the house you can grab, or like the other comment suggests, get small bags of healthy snacks to take with you, or get protein bars or protein drinks for ease...you can do this, know you can...good luck, and Stay Strong!!

    Apparently you break it and get a new one. Oh, wait, that's the computer. OOPS! It just takes time and learning new ways to short circuit (now we're back to electronic things) our old ways. I always carry Luna bars with me so that if I do forget to eat I have something healthy to eat. Fixing small bags of yummy healthy treats to put in your car or other places can often help. After awhile those old habits tend to disappear. Good luck and let me know what you discover.

Hard to loose

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

It is hard to loose a friend over a misunderstanding.
She was attaching herself to a man and having him stay over.
A month ago I was consoling her about her ex....
I have been married for 43 years, I just do not empathize
Maybe someone else can help her.
I told her she was acting agitated and to calm down.
She told me where to go and has snubbed me ever since.
I feel like I am in middle school.

    Sometime all we can do it be there. As you already know, people have to learn for themselves before real change can happen. It's not about you and you seem strong enough to understand that.

She's lost a valuable thing because of pride.

    Sounds to me like she is having her own doubts and doesn't want to believe that they might have some ground. You are a true friend for telling her how you felt. Maybe you could write her a letter about how you meant to come across. Sometimes it's easier to say what you mean when you write it down.
Trust God will show you the right time to talk to her again. Keep in prayer about her, and maybe pray for God to help show you how to be empathetic?

    Give her some time. You may be able to save the friendship but you both will have to acknowledge that you have a different opinion but that it's okay.

My husband and his best friend argue constantly and have gone months without speaking. But they couldn't live without each other. It took them almost 20 years to admit they were different people but could still be close friends.

Hang in there.

    All you can do is love her and forgive her, she doesn't have to apologize first - that will set her free to forgive herself and see truth. Just love her - pray for her and be there when she sees the light and wants friendship again. If she doesn't want your friendship again - she is still in God's hand - just turn it over to Him. emoticon

    Maybe after she calms down she will apologize. If not she wasn't a very good friend. Friends turn into different people with a man around. Good luck and God bless. WW.
