I Am Canadian!!! Song Lyrics (English/French)

Friday, July 01, 2011

Canada, all our hopes can thrive
Both immigrants and native born
Make our land come alive
Canada, one nationality
We form our unity unique
From our diversity.

I am Canadian
Join hands with me.
I am Canadian
Feel proud and free.

Canada, the mountains and the plains
The cities and the forests
Highways and country lanes.
Canada, as varied as our land
Our people forge their strongest links
When we join hand to hand.

You are Canadian
Different from me.
You are Canadian
Feel proud and free.

Listen to the nation's heartbeat
Canada's a state of mind
If we strive with thought and passion
It's a dream that we might find.

I am Canadian
Join hands with me
You are Canadian
We are proud and free, so proud and free

Canada, a world of every hue
We honour our first peoples
As we build something new
Canada, a vision we'll maintain
For tolerance is never won
But always still to gain

I am Canadian
Join hands with me
I am Canadian
Feel proud and free, so proud and free

You are Canadian
Different from me
We're all of us Canadian
You are Canadian
Feel proud and free
You're going to make us feel proud and free
We are Canadian
Joined hand to hand
We are Canadian
Strong as our land
We are Canadian.



Canada, depuis beaucoup d'annees
Qui fait vivre notre pays
C'est un peuple si varie
Canada, nous ferions une unite
Immigrant ou indigen
De notre diversite

Je suis canadien
Je te donne ma main
Je suis canadien
Je le mets en train

Canada, divers comme notre contree
Les montaignes, les prairies
Les forets et les cites
Canada, une poignee de main donnons
Pour joindre notre patrie aime
Dans une vivre reunion

Tu es canadien
Different de moi
Tu es canadien
Donnons-nous ta foi

Ecoutez battre le coeur canadien
Ce n' est qu'une etat d'esprit
Tout notre pensee, tout notre passion
Peut-etre ce revre c'est accompli

Je suis canadien
Tu me donnes ta main
Tu est canadien
Mettons-le en train

Canada, des coleurs mondiales
Honourons nos originaires
Mais fondons une nouvelle
Canada, il faut pour soutenir
La vision de la tolerance
Essayer l'acquerir

Je suis canadien
Je te donne ma main
Je suis canadien
Je le mets en train
Tu es canadien
Different de moi, et j'aime tes differences
Tu es canadien
Donnons-nous ta foi
C'est a nous donnons la foi
Nous sommes canadiens
Plein d'espoir
Nous sommes canadiens
En Canada faut croire
Nous sommes canadiens.

A Somewhat Immoderate Response to Moderation?

Thursday, June 30, 2011

KALIGIRL and BRIGHTSPARK have both kindly pointed out that my reading of the Leslie Beck article in my previous blog was (ahem) somewhat inaccurate and perhaps a little immoderate and . . . . that in fact the occasional French fry might not spell disaster and . . . . like that.

Here's what KALIGIRL said:

I hate to differ, but the article stated: “People who REGULARLY ate French fries, potato chips, mashed potatoes, processed meat, meat, sugary drinks, sweets and refined grains were more LIKELY to gain weight.”

I'm an EVERYTHING in moderation person unless you have an addiction, and consider a DQ cheese coney, sharing onion rings and a mini oreo blizzard a REAL treat!




And BRIGHTSPARK agrees with KALIGIRL.

And of course they are both absolutely right.

I replied to KALIGIRL:



Thanks for your comment on my "moderation" blog: your gloss on it is definitely more moderate (and accurate!!). And yes, I do think I have an addiction to French fries, potato chips and all the rest . . . trigger foods for me!!



And I repllied to BRIGHTSPARK:



On reconsideration, I'm thinking you and KALIGIRL are right, Usha . . . I need to be more moderate in my rejection of moderation!! The two of you have a lot of wisdom.

But (defence of necessity) my intensity is related to my addiction . . . last week when my weight went back up over 140, I'd had just a couple foods that aren't on my usual program (small serving of chicken wings, a muffin) both tracked and within range but . . . . they trigger cravings and my metabolism seems to deal with that kind of food differently.

Don't like the results of "moderation" for me. *sigh*



I really had only eaten some treat foods with moderation. And I really don't like the results of "moderation" for me. But that's because . . . . I've still got some work to do on "thinking like a thin person", pretty obviously. I'm still dealing with those incredible and uncontrollable urges to eat yucky stuff in great bucketloads . . .

Maintaining weight loss is not easier than losing weight. Or at least, not yet. I'm still working on finding my lowest achievable weight, and determining my lowest sustainable weight. Not there yet: maybe not close yet.

    This is an interesting discussion. I don't get cravings, but I do notice that if I am not careful 'moderation' becomes 'just a little more.' And that's a slippery slope. I have not read the book you've been reading and using to help your weight loss and maintenance, so I can't comment on what she says. But I can tell you that my husband is thin and to think like him, I would have to not bother even thinking much about food. He eats -- sensibly and not a lot -- and he doesn't think about it at all. Most of the what I would call "naturally thin" people I know don't think about it. They just don't focus on food at all except as a fuel. Period.

    I appreciate your thinking more about this, Ellen, and responding to a different point of view. How lovely is that!

I guess the decision to eat or not to eat hinges on whether or not the food is a trigger food for you. I know you are really great at practicing moderation Ellen -- in dark chocolate for example -- which might be a trigger food for someone else.

In the end, it's about doing what works for you. And that may change over time. Just saying. :) I'm with you in practicing ongoing awareness about our choices.

Hugs,
Usha.

    I'm still a work in progress, too.
I do seem to be able to count out 10 french fries and leave the rest, but french fries were never a real passion of mine. I only eat them at all if they're really good.
I never eat potato chips any more.
My particular craving is dark chocolate. I just can't leave it alone.

PHEBESS 6/30/2011 7:59PM

    Each of us are different. Some people binge if they taste a trigger food. Some people binge if they deny themselves that same food.

So - if avoidance works better for you, go for it.

I'm the kind of person who can't handle permanent avoidance, I need the occasional moderate treat.

Whatever works!

BELLEFAITH42 6/30/2011 2:42PM

    I don't know the right answer to this one for myself either. I think that CONSISTENCY is the key to MODERATION. Whatever you can consistently eat in order to always eat in moderation is ok. If something is a trigger food, and it blows you out of MODERATION, then its no longer moderation is it?

HUH? emoticon

I just confused myself...

    Ellen you will find your balance.
Each day is a new one that bring about new changes. At the shore yesterday, I ate only two fries. It wasn't that long ago that I would polish off everything, now I think nothing of leaving food on my plate. Even though they were good, the two satisfied me. Eating more would take me from my goal. (Ah so that is what Dr. Beck means about being mindful. )
You know what is right for you...follow your heart.

Starches, grains, things with added sugar, and even things with natural sugar (such as fruits), things with non-nutritive sweeteners, etc. all tend to trigger cravings for me. And cravings lead to binges. And binges lead to... Well I suspect you also know where those go. LOL

It's one of those things where I'm not likely to be able to have "just one." It's better for me if I just stay away and never get started.

    "Maintaining weight loss is not easier than losing weight."

Couldn't agree MORE! A corollary for me is that moderation of trigger foods takes a great deal more effort than to simply ban them altogether!

SLENDERELLA61 6/30/2011 8:08AM

    OH, you are all right! Moderation works when you can think moderately. Moderation doesn't work when it triggers more eating. I had the same experience recently. I went out to eat and ordered grilled chicken and veggies. I had one bite only of a white bread stick. The chicken was delicious but very salty and seasoned; the baby bok choy and the green beans were swimming in different seasonings and oils. Afterwards I had the biggest cravings I'd had in months. I wanted everything to eat. Something was in that food that stimulated my appetite. Could have been psychological, but I think it ws physical.

Anyway, here is to being moderate about moderation!! Use it when it works. Shun triggers when you can. You are doing great!!! Really, really great!

Absolute No to "Bad" Foods

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

www.theglobeandmail.com/life/health/
new-health/health-nutrition/leslie-bec
k/why-french-fries-are-even-worse-than
-you-thought/article2079129/


OK, it's official -- at least if you are prepared to rely upon a Harvard study tracking almost 121,000 people over a 20 year period. The link above will take you to the whole article, written by Toronto based dietitian Leslie Beck. But here's the condensed version.

Some foods really are bad.

It's not the case that you can eat all foods in moderation.

The baddies? Predictable. All my faves.

That would be French fries and potato chips at the top of the list. And would include "sugary drinks" (what we Canajuns call "pop") and processed meats and desserts and refined carbs and . . . even baked potatoes. Yikes.

People eating these foods put on 17 pounds over 20 years. May not sound like a huge weight gain . . . but often apparently combined with additional weight gain associated with inadequate exercise, drinking, lack of sleep . . . yeah.

I've been trying to persuade myself that a French fry or two (snatched off DH's plate) isn't going to hurt . . . so long as I stay within my calorie range. And I have permitted myself a baked potato probably once a week.

Gotta reconsider this.

Stick with the veggies, fruit, nuts, whole grains and yogourt which are the mainstay of my diet - and which the Harvard study tells us are associated with no weight gain, even moderate weight loss.

Not what I wanted to hear, frankly. But this is a pretty reputable source. So, I'm listening.

Moderation in all things? Maybe not.

    No, this really a case of eating in moderation. There is nothing surprising or new in this study. High calorie food has the propensity to put weight on people, low calorie food does not. The article says:

"The pounds accumulate gradually and most people don’t know what specifically causes them to struggle with weight gain."

It's not because they're eating potatoes, it's because they're not paying attention or in fact, some just don't care. It was no mystery to me as to how I got fat.

    Why is it that life is supposed to be so restrained all the time? Unfortunately, food is one of the great joys that we have and to never eat something that is totally delicious just dulls my spirit and makes life such a chore.

The good thing coming from this is that it adds a thrill to doing something that is supposed to be wicked. (Very occasionally, of course.)

    I saw this study in the paper recently. I think they're right that people who regularly eat french fries and potato chips gain more weight. The key is regularly. I think once in a while a serving (or half serving) of really yummy french fries won't ruin anyone's diet and can keep a person from feeling deprived. The trick is not to eat them every day. I'm trying to focus on eating good things, like fruits, vegetables, nuts, peas and beans. If I fill up on those I really don't miss the other stuff. I'm eating less meat, too, even weighing my portions at home so I know what 2 ounces or 3 ounces look like.

Made up for it by having Cheerios for supper. I haven't eaten fries in years, I just really wanted them. Not a smart move, and my stomach is not happy with me today for having ingested all that fat.)

My niece told me that potatoes are basically void of nutrients - that's why we load them up with fat or fry them or whatever, to add nutrients. One way of looking at it.

    Between you and I and now all of Spark.....LOL I WILL eat all of those things....You know why? Because I have already proven that I can. I have eaten all of those things during this journey of mine and I have still lost 140 Pounds. I read a story the other day stating its not about low carb diets or high protien diets etc......., they said that counting calories is the key. I happen to truly believe that cause thats really all I have done (besides a poop load of exercise) when it comes to eating. Mind you I do find lower calorie versions of things I like to eat. I have not told anyone this, but I also have some kind of dessert 5 nights a week, if not more after dinner too. Smoothies, pudding, jello, microwaved smores....yummo!! So I do truly believe the all in moderation thing. Thats truly what my journey has been all about for me. Eating the foods I still love, but less of it.

Middle Number 3 Again: Relief!!

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

OK, with lots of support from SP friends I turned around that blip upwards and today weighed in at 138.5 again.

Yay.

But: I'm going to continue with the vigilant pretracking.

Yeah.

And not eating unless I'm sitting down.

And measuring portions.

And arranging my environment to hide the peanut butter and the cheese!!

And reading my Beck advantage response cards.

All of that.

Because: I don't want to strengthen the giving in muscle. And I do want to keep my motivation and my resistance muscle strong!!

Middle Number 4, GRRRRR!!

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Changed my weight tracker to 140.5. Up from 138 where it's been (faithfully checked daily because that's what works for me in maintenance) for weeks and weeks.

But today it WAS 140.5. And so I changed it.

I hate to see that middle number 4.

I know, I know. Not a big deal. Probably temporary.

I haven't been exceeding my calorie count. Have been permitting myself 1500 or 1600 calories a day, however. Within my "range" but probably too much for my metabolism.

And: I did have a serving of salted cashews and almonds yesterday. So there might be some "water weight" lurking in there. Nuts good (in moderation); salted nuts not so good.

Today: Will review my Beck cards. *pause: doing that right now* Done.

Where have I been a bit sloppy?

Pretracking nutrition: gotta do this every day, the day before. (Haven't put in today's nutrition yet: will do this immediately after posting my blog). And I will measure portion sizes rather than relying upon the "eyeball method".

Exercise: work has been uber stressful, and I haven't been getting to the gym as much as I need to. Even though the gym (and golf) are excellent means of combating stress. Went to the gym yesterday. I'm playing golf today. And tomorrow.

Eating standing up. There's been a tiny bit of that creeping back in . . . vegetables while preparing salads, a berry or two. Trivial from a calorie count perspective, NOT trivial from a "strengthening the resistance muscle" perspective. No more eating standing up. None. No choice. This is a huge slippery slope for me.

So: I will continue to pretrack diligently: exercise, nutrition.

And measure my portion sizes accurately.

Because: ignoring small weight gains is what got me up to 230 pounds in 2001.

Eternal vigilance is what I require. Beck and SP can help me maintain that.

I want to see a middle number 3 again. Yeah.

When it happens, I will post it!

    How good it is to have a Beck's checklist that you can go over in your mind to make improvements when the scale slips up - even if it is ever so slightly.

Your plan to measure - and to get unsalted nuts for the next time - are both good. Your commitment to pre-plan your food and avoid standing is excellent. You reminded me. I've done a little standing-eating. Need to cut that out. Yesterday I fell back into an old trap. I ate some of Natalie's leftover salmon. I didn't need it, but I just hated to see it go to waste. Better waste than waist. Thanks for reminding me.

    Do you pre-track every day? Some days I try. If I know I am going out for dinner I'll even try and pick what I'm having ahead of time (if they have an online menu), so I can allocate more or less enough calories. But honestly, if I'm too strict with pre-tracking it makes eating too joyless. I find, especially with snacks, I need a bit of room to go with what my body is wanting.

Do you pre-plan meals?
