Happy B-day Grandma Anna

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Although Gma has been gone for 10 years, I still think of her and her strength frequently. When I feel whiny and petty, I think of what she went through as young woman and know that I have nothing to complain about. She brought 4 children into this world and lost one to illness. She and Gpa and their children survived a war, lived as refugees, went without food. They came to this country with nothing, not speaking the language. But they survived here as well. And thrived. Without handouts or welfare. I am proud to know that your blood is my blood. I like to believe I am who am because you were who you were. I love you Grandma Anna, and I miss you.


Saturday Morning

Sunday, March 07, 2010

I meant to write this yesterday, but got off track. I walked with my dog Joey yesterday at our local park. It was such a beautiful morning. The park is close to the river and we watched the hawks glide overhead. It was so peaceful. The snow is slowly melting and we are both happier for it. We even grilled yesterday. I feel like winter may be finally on it's way out.

January I did so well. I tracked everything, logged on everyday, got over 1000 points for the month. February, I am lucky if I can find time to brush my teeth.

    I know how you feel. Sometimes my time management is on point. Other times I can even forget to do the most basic things. I try to use to do list to keep up with everything. Keep pushing. emoticon

    Eating healthy and taking a walk do make for a good day! Keep it up! Remember if you do find that you've maybe eaten something that isn't so good, that it doesn't spoil the whole day -- you can get right back on track starting with the very next bite and still salvage the day!

    Sometimes, just a plain old good day is really good enough, isn't it. Thanks for sharing.

Wanna break away

Sunday, January 31, 2010

I love vegetables. I love whole grains, and fruit and yogurt and walking, and being outside, and walking my dog and walking on the treadmill. He is happy to sat and watch reruns of shows we have already seen 50 times or some sports thing that nobody will care about in a year. If dinner isn't brown and white, he won't eat it. That's fine for him, his choice. But he expects me to be right there with him. We are not on the same morning schedule, so I can pretty much eat healthy for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is painful. He wants his meat and potatoes. And bread and butter.He wants me to cook and eat with him. I can , I do. I don't want to. I do add a vegetable to my meal, but I don't feel like it's enough.

    I go through the same situation. I weigh my portions same food as he is eating) and put them on a salad plate in the kitchen-I also fix his plate in the kitchen as well. With the bread he will only eat butter-I have my tablespoon of Smart Balance. I put these on small plates in the kitchen as well. I always have a fruit salad or fruit and nut assortment on the table. This has helped me-he eats his fill and I have mine.
