No more yesterdays!

Monday, May 17, 2010

Yesterday was a bad day. I ate pretty healthy until my sister made those cookies! White Chocolate Macadamia Nut. They were so good. And, since I have very little willpower I ate
6 of them. I did not log them on my Nutrition because they aren't really nutritious and I didn't really want to know how many calories there were in them. After I ate them I went to my room and ran a blood glucose test, it was 205. That's the highest my reading has ever been, I think. I don't want that to happen again. So, where do I get this "willpower" that I seem to lack? And, how do I keep from eating more of those cookies that are just sitting there on the kitchen counter, calling my name?!

    Thank you Cameosun for those words of inspiration. I have
so far eluded the temptation of eating another of those cookies.

    Wow, I probably would have done the same and then I would have exercised like crazy to burn the excess. Or I would have reduced the rest of the day's calories. Actually... I have DONE this before !!

Hang in there, lifestyle changes take time. It's not a do or die situation. Tomorrow is another day to begin anew.

    Put them away out of sight and inconvenient to get at.

    I can't give them away or just get rid of them. My sister made them. This is her house. I live with her. I have been doing
very well today ignoring them, so far. I am going to do some housework now to keep my mind off them!!!

I can't believe it! It's the last day of January, 2010. A whole month gone already! I don't
remember all that much fun this month for the time to pass so quickly. Oh, well, I guess I'll have to learn to pay closer attention.

2010. A new year. Another time for new beginnings. emoticon

New Year, New Spring

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Well, it's March 2009 and almost time to open the trailer down at the lake. It's going to be
difficult this year with hubby gone. I have a lot of things to learn about it. Like cleaning
out the black water holding tank, washing the trailer, keeping distilled water in the golf cart
batteries, keeping the gas tanks filled and raking all those dreaded leaves!!! I have a lot
of volunteers that will come help me, all I have to do is let them know when. I don't even
know how to start the water heater. I let him do all of those "man" things. I also have the
privilege of cleaning out the shed. There are things in there that have been there since
we bought it, it's time to go. I'm hoping I can stay there most of the summer. I'll just have
to find things to do. That means making myself get out and walk or go to the pool or
ride one of the bikes we have there. I'm going to miss my husband though, he loved it there.
Well, before I ramble on I will get off here. Just wanted to jot down some thoughts. I'm
not dreading going back, it's very peaceful there and we have a lot of friends there.


My Husband

Friday, October 03, 2008

It has been a difficult year for me. I will not go into a lot of detail but,
on July 14 my husband of only 6 and a half years passed away after
a short illness. I had to move out of our rented house because I had
retired in Feb. We didn't get much time together after my retirement because he was admitted to the hospital on June 20.
I am now living with my sister and brother-in-law.

Without the support of the East Eckford Community Church and
surrounding neighbors and friends I don't think I would have made it.

I miss my husband very much.

However, since my move I have joined TOPS. My sister has been a
member for years and she has inspired me to get my butt in gear.
With the help of herself, TOPS and SparkPeople I will get rid of this
baggage called FAT!

I'm sure this blog is jerky in my thoughts but, that's the way my brain works!

    Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your husband. There is never enough time to spend with those we love so dearly and never a good time to say good-bye.
