My Mom Gets More And More Upset Because At This Point Because
Dad Insists On Taking The Car
Even When The Store Is Only A Few Blocks Away.
So Mom Decided To Try A New Approach To Get DAD To Exercise
And She Played A Trick On Him.
She Knew Where He Was Going…
So She Took Her Car And Followed Behind.
And When He Went Into The Store…
She Took Her Set Of Keys To His Car And Drove The Car Out Of Sight.
But She Left A Big Note On The Parking Spot.
Then She Watched Just In Case.
So He Came Out Of The Store…Looked Around…At First He Thought
Someone Had Stolen The Car.
Then He Saw The Big Note My Mom Left:
The Doctor Told You That You Need To Exercise.
I Have The Car …Please Walk Home
Your Loving Wife,
Mom Kept Watching
And Dad Just Sat There On The Curb For A While.
Then She Saw Him Make A Call From His Cell Phone
But Her Phone Didn’t Ring (She Had Set Call Forwarding To Her Cell Phone)
And He Just Kept Sitting There
And Mom Started To Worry
But 5 Minutes Later Dad’s Buddy Ralph Showed Up With HIS Car.
And Dad Got In Ralph’s Car
So Mom Tailed Them
That’s When Things Really Blew Up
The Two Big Guys Hit A Fast Food Joint And
Ordered Enough Food To Feed An Army
Mom Caught Them Both Red Handed And Called His Wife On Ralph
Both Husbands Have Been Grounded For A Week
And They Aren’t Allowed To Watch This Week's Game Together
IF YOU'RE EATING FOR NO REASON MAYBE THERE
IS SOMETHING BOTHERING YOU UNDERNEATH THE SURFACE
I had a REALLY bad day yesterday...(mood wise not food wise)
and I'm guessing you know how dangerous that can be.
So I wasn't up to being creative.
I'm not manic but I am compulsive
What I know about myself is that I don't get 'depressed', I get angry at the way things are...knowing that so much is out of my control....So I would eat to 'sedate' my feelings and keep from exploding.... I guess that might sound familar to a lot of people. Food was my 'drug' of choice.
And I learned that I needed to change my response to those things, if I was going to survive. But I didn't want to just survive...I wanted to thrive. So I found that being creative helped me channel that response to more positive, more rewarding means of expression. ...And I discovered a new "Joy" in life.
I had a really bad day yesterday...mood wise....
I didn't turn to food ...but I couldn't deal with being humorous either.
I should have done it anyway...it probably would have helped.
So today is a new day....
Maybe I'll create something this afternoon
George… I Appreciate Your Help With The Food Shopping
But You Need To Look At The Nutrition Labels.
That Kids Cereal You Brought Home Has Over 50% Sugar In It.
That Is At Least As Much Sugar As There Is In A Glazed Doughnut.
And You Know Those Cute Little Cereal Boxes You Take To Work…
1 Box Is One Serving.
Georgina…You’ve Got To Be Kidding.
You Mean One Of Those Tiny Little Boxes Is Supposed To Fill Me…Me???
I Thought Those Were Samples.
See What A Serving Size Is And How Many Calories A Serving Contains.
A Serving Is Not A Soup Bowl Full Of Cereal, It’s Usually A Cup Or Less..Read The Box.
When You Buy Dressing You Have To Look At The Labels '
For The Saturated Fat Content.
Normally No More Than 10% Of Your Daily Calories
Should Come From Saturated Fat.
You Don’t Know What’s In The Dressings You Get In A Restaurant.
So While I Love That You Order Salads When You Eat Lunch
With The Guys... Even If You Order Dressing On The Side,
It Adds Calories If You Dump The Entire
Contents Of Dressing Onto Your Greens.
Well Georgina … I Haven’t Been Going To The Vending Machine.
I’ve Been Microwaving A Bag Of Natural Popcorn For My Afternoon Break.
That’s Great George…Just Note That A Bag Of That Stuff Is Not 1 Serving…
So Take 3 Cups And Leave The Rest For Your Co-Workers.
And Easy With The Salt,
We Both Have A Family History Of High Blood Pressure.
We Should Limit Salt In This House
Can I Have Coffee Georgina?
Yes, With Milk Not Cream And Watch The Artificial Sweeteners …
Don’t Overdo It.
This Is Depressing...Georgina.
I'm Just Taking Care of My Stud Muffin...George.
Speaking of Which
You Know Georgina…We Never Discussed What I Get
When I DO Lose Some Weight.
You Know George…I’ve Been Thinking…
What You Need Is A Little Incentive To Get You Serious About This Weightloss
Uh Oh….I Don’t Like The Sound Of That Georgina.
What Have You Got Up Your Sleeve?
No No George…
Just A Little Something To Keep You Mentally On Track And Focused…
Unless Of Course You’re AFRAID Of A Little Challenge?
I Am YOUR MAN Baby….I’m Not AFRAID Of Anything.
Good George…Then How About:
Every Week You Don’t LOSE, You Have To Do The Dishes.
And If You GAIN, Then You Have To Do The Laundry Too.
No Problem, Georgina
Well I’m Going With Helen To ZUMBA Class and then window shopping…
Her Mother-In-Law, Hannah, Is Going To Keep An Eye On The Kids.
So You Might Like To Get A Little Exercise In Before You Watch The Game.
I'll Start With My 2 Mile Walk
A Little Boot Camp Toning Video.
I Can’t Find The Remote…I Wonder If She Hid It...That Would Be Cruel.
Doesn’t Feel Like Game Day Without My Snackies.
I Wonder What I Can Have.
Oh…Georgina Left A Note.
3 Cups Worth Of Hot Air Popcorn Waiting In The Microwave.
Crudité Platter In Fridge…Have Fun.
Anything Else and
The Plastic Gloves And Apron In Cabinet If You Need To Practice.
You Know...Georgina Can Be A Little Sarcastic At Times
