It's Turkey week!

Monday, November 19, 2012

Yikes where does the time go? Time seems to move so much faster the older I get. Amazing how when we are young we can't wait for time to move quickly. It took forever for your 16th birthday to come so you could get your driver's licence. Then it took forever to turn 21 so you could go out to clubs and dance and drink. But now I just want time to slow down! I am trying to grow old gracefully. I always said that I would be an eccentric little old lady. But I am not ready for that yet. Although some, I am sure would say I am a bit eccentric already. Overall I want to grow old with good health. I am happy that for now I do have my health. I truly credit Sparkspeople for that and the many tools they provide to keep me on track. I love the trackers and the community is wonderful. I love knowing that I have sparks in my life to help me achieve the goal of good health.
Today I am up a pound over goal of 110. so that puts me at 111. I actually think I lucked out as I ate out Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Yep, that's a record for me. So I am really looking forward to today and getting back on track. I have 3 days to eat healthy and light before the big Thanksgiving meal. We are having 8 folks over here for dinner. I got a 20 pound turkey that I will pick up today or tomorrow. I know it will be expensive as well since turkeys are imported here. But looking forward to having it. I do really enjoy it.
Hope all my sparks buddies have a great week.
Happy Thanksgiving.

    I looked everywhere for a turkey - no luck! I guess since Thanksgiving is a few days earlier this year they haven't quite put them out yet. Since Brazil doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving, the turkeys are put out for Christmas - I just happen to be able to find them most years. Oh well...chicken and ham it is!

    I remember growing up how old my grammy seemed- and she was younger than I am now!

    maybe you could invest in getting a turkey farm started down there, then you could get yourself a cheap but excellent one.
    BTW I've had read that as we age our perception of time changes, that's why things seem to go so fast now a days

    Time is certainly speeding by. I too wish it would slow down a bit!

    So you can't go to the store and buy a turkey anytime you want down there in Mexico? I'm glad you'll have the chance to get one and celebrate with your friends!

    I hear you on time moving faster. Remember as a child that summer vacation seemed to last forever and Christmas never came fast enough? Enjoy turkey week!

    I agree that time seems to FLY BY as we get older - I can't believe 2012 is almost over as I'm still trying to get used to the fact that 2011 is gone - and here we are on the verge of 2013 already so 'don't blink!!'

    Have a great Thanksgiving!
