I was talking to my Mom on her birthday and mentioned that the farm stand down the street opened up again. I had stopped and bought tomatoes and onions from him and the tomatoes were so delicious. Then Mom mentioned how nice that was and how if she had some she would make steak pizzola. Well, you know the mere mentioning of anything food wise gets me going so the next day, I made the steak pizzola with the fresh tomatoes and onions. It was sooooooo good!! We haven't had that in a long time!
It doesn't take much for me to crave a certain food. The mention of it in passing, on TV or a whiff of it at a resturant and it sticks in my mind. Just like I've been watching the ad for Ryan's buffet that says to try it's Mongolian stir fry. I didn't do this the last time because I didn't know about it but now that I know about it, I can't wait to try it.
This is a new month and I've started setting a lofty goal of losing 15 lbs this month because we'll be going home after the first week in April. I want to do this and get close to onederland before going home. So I've been exercising and I even went swimming for 2 hours the other day. My husband wouldn't go so I picked up myself and went alone. Something I would not have done in the past. I'm afraid to be in the water alone just in case something happens. But I did it and there were people about but I had the pool to myself. It was nice having people walking thru as it calmed my fears that are tough to overcome at my age. I have a healthy respect for the water and a fear that goes along with that. It was nice to be rewarded with losing almost 2 lbs the next day so I'm on my way to making a weight dent this month!!
