To My Suprise-4 lbs gone

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

I was thinking how good it would feel to just lose the 2 lbs i had gained earlier this year... that's all i was really hoping for..though i have been working hard the last couple weeks to watch what i ate and exercise...just 2 lbs...and i would be so thrilled...and i was excited to think of that 2 lbs gone...so imagine my surprise when the scale read i had lost 4 lbs... wohoo!!! i am now under 290 for the first time in a very long time... i doubled the amount i had hoped for....and wow....doing a happy dance...who's with me??? lol.

Today's Healthy Reflection

Monday, March 02, 2009

You'll never miss the water, 'til the well runs dry.
- W.C. Handy

Oh how true...i have lived it in fact...ok, the well did not run dry...the pump went out... this was a couple years ago, but thinking about this quote brought about this memory and how easy it is for us to go through it, yet as soon as we have it back...forget how thankful we should be... without water...you can't bath...wash your hair...and brushing your teeth is a drag...flushing a toilet is impossible without water...and dishes...uhg... what happens when our tap runs dry... when we don't take time for ourselves... we, like that well...will run dry... we won't be able to function...at least not nearly as well when our well's are full... let's resolve not only to make sure we are full of that life substaining water... but both figuratively and non figuratively...

    Yes, it is something that we should remind ourselves of daily!

Marching Into March

Sunday, March 01, 2009

The first of the month is always so exciting for me...it's like new year's...12 months a year... a time to make a new start...get rid of the old baggage that has been trying to get me down and bring in a fresh start... March is one of the hardest for me though...see...my father passed away 3 years ago...a week before my birthday... but, he is still with me...watching... and taking care of me... within these last 3 years, i have grown into the woman he always knew i could be...i think he would be proud of how i have grown from this pain and became a better person... no...it wasn't easy... still isn't at times... but grow i did... and this month, i will continue and to grow mentally and spiritually while i shrink physically ;)

So let's all bring March in marching away :)

My Gripe-Nuts Nuts & More Nuts

Thursday, February 26, 2009

I haven't had a gripe for a while...and figured it was time... :) my current gripe is nuts...about 6 years ago, i was eating a wedding cake cookie that contained a macadamia nut...i didn't know i was allergic...but one little bite made it quite apparent. luckily i have always had allergies to something, and knew the warning signs...but even knowing and being able to react quickly was almost not enough... because of that incident, i can no longer eat any nut without a reaction... and possible death...i am not alone in this... in fact it is said that nut allergies cause the most severe reactions of all food allergies...the number of children (this isn't counting us adults who have developed it) with potentially fatal peanut allergies had doubled between 1997 and 2002. It is estimated that 3 million americans have a nut allergy. I know i have read many many times how people with nut allergies has increase over the years...this all being said... i now come to my gripe...why is that more now than ever before...everything has nuts in it... i use to be able to find many things that were banana flavored..whether bread, cake or whatever...now...everything is banana and nut... in fact, it's very rare that you will find just plain banana...except of course...a banana itself.... and no, it's not cause i'm looking more at the labels...in fact...i looked more in the beginning of this 6 years ago, than i do now...there are many cereals that i can't even try...cause they now contain nuts...and if i was to really be careful, as i should, i wouldn't be able to eat even more because of the stuff that is made on the same equipment as nuts....now granted...now, more than ever, they are more prone to put that on the label, due to the severe uprise in nut allergies.... but i swear...within the last 6 years, i have seen more nuts added than taken out... why is what i want to know...i know they are not picking on me...nor those with allergies...but i am concerned that as americans, we see a problem, and give more to it than try to stop it...

so...that is my gripe for this fine thursday :) i'm really in a good mood otherwise, but dd2 and i were talking about this saturday and it's something i had wanted to vent about :)

    Oh my. I'm sorry to hear of your nutty predicament. I love nuts and cannot imagine having to go through life without them. I hope that you have a future of yummy non-nutty food experiences that will keep you healthy, happy and safe!

PS: Vent all you like! We're here to listen!!

    Boy, I really feel for you, Kitty! And you're right, food allergies seem to be on the rise. I am fortunate, I'm not allergic, but my little nephew is...to nuts, shell fish, chocolate. As far as I know, my sister has only had to use that little epipen twice to inject the medicine when he ate something with nuts in it. And you're also right about banana bread. Unless I bake it myself, the store bakeries almost always put nuts in it.

    Yes, the tracking feature is a great way to earn Sp points! Especially the cardio minutes! Plus, like you mention, learning whether you are getting enough of certain nutrients. Thanks to Nita, I'm back to tracking again!

I keep reminding myself how much this web site has to offer its members...besides all the wonderful support and friendships!

    Like I said in Nita's blog, I totally need to get back to tracking just for this feature. I'm not really concerned with my caloric intake, but the nutritional data is invaluable. I mean, really... that's pretty darn kewl.
