What Christmas Means to Me!

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

Christmas has always been my favorite time of the year. From the time I could remember my first Christmas till today. Like most children I grew up believing in Santa Claus and getting presents under the tree. Spending time with my parents and siblings were some of the greatest Christmas of all.

Well now my parents are both gone and my siblings have moved far apart that getting together for Hollidays are pretty impossible. It has been 3 years since I truly celebrated Christmas with anyone. (sinceRaypassed). This year is going to be different.

This past Sunday, I attended church. The service I attended restored my reason for celebrating Christmas. The Greatest Gift was given to all of us on Christmas Day. For a child was born in a little town known as Bethlehem. Through this Gift of God came the gift of Salvation. Who knew that the child that was born that night over 2000 years ago would give his life to save us all.

God Bless everyone and Merry Christmas!

Thursday, December 18, 2014

We have been asked to blog about our plans for the Hollidays and how we plan to work fitness into our plans.

We are spending the Christmas weekend with my brother this year. I am taking dinner down to my brother's . We will be having the usual fare of turkey, dressing , green bean casserole. pecan pie and dinner rolls. Since we are spending two days there. I am taking good choices for snacks and breakfast with me. My protein shakes for breakfast, oranges and bananas for snacks. Dale has plans for a taco salad for lunch on the first day.

As for fitness my brother lives in the country and it is an easy 1/4 mile walk to my sisters house. Which I plan on making a visit there for an hour or two. I will make the walk to and from my brothers.

Happy Hollidays!

Week 2 BSG Decorating for the Holidays! Sparkly Snowflakes

Friday, December 12, 2014

A few years ago my husband and I went all out decorating for Christmas. Now a days Leslie and I do some decorating but not very much. This year we have decided not to decorate the tree this year. The Nimitiz is our reason for not doing so. Little kitties and trees do not mix well.

We have our Christmas Stockings hung, mine, Leslies, Katies, Joshs, Silk, Dart and of course Nimitiz. We will celcbrate Christmas Eve with the fur kids.

We have two neighbors who go all out decorating for Christmas, with lights and music. There is no way we can compete with that.

    We don't put up a Christmas tree because the birds are too interested in it and the lights. Enjoy celebrating Christmas with your fur kids!

    I don't put up a tree anymore - Nellie enjoys taking it down too much! It's a good thing Nimitiz and Nellie aren't together! My mom's cats just sleep under her tree - wish I were that lucky!

    Debbie, I wouldn't put too much stock in November, it's a hard month to focus with all the dinners & planning for the holidays. This is a new month, just focus & do what you can. But a big emoticon on the improving blood sugars, you are doing something right even if the scales don't think so. Keep up the progress, emoticon with those awesome goals.

Sometimes just the fact that we're still trying is a reason to celebrate. Like you, I didn't meet my November goals but we're not giving up! We're still fighting!

    Great goals, Debbie! I think lowering the blood sugar is a huge accomplishment that you should embrace. Keep up the great work! And you have set realistic, achievable goals for this month. I think you're ready to succeed and end 2014 with improved health!

November sG Challenge week 4 Yearning Yams Did I stick to the plan

Saturday, November 29, 2014

Well did I stick to my healthy plan for Thanksgiving? We didn't celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday as most people do. Instead we had young man who was caring for our fur kids this weekend overand we had pizza 2 medium pizza for 3. We had a half pizza left over for him for the next day as a snack.

Friday we left for my brothers to celebrate Thanksgiving. We got there just before noon. Had a light lunch (salad). Then went out and played with his 9 dogs all of them schirpkes. We spent about an hour and a half in the backyard with them. Then went in and warmed up dinner. Dale had cooked it all the day before. We had small stuffed pork chop (stuffed with spinach and cream cheese, a brussel sprout and sweet potato casserole, and green bean casserole with spinach in it. I had about a 1/4 cup of each casserole an a 1/2 chop. All of the meal was great tasting. We did get some exercise in by walking down the road to my sisters house for a visit.

Yes, I believe I stayed on my plan.
