Thoughts for Today

Sunday, January 26, 2014

WOW! My last blog was in September, 2013. Time to get back on track.
I have been sick with colds on and off since my last blog. I believe it is the weather here in the Carolina's. It can be in the 70's one day and the next day in the 20's. I certainly miss my FL weather. Temps are mostly the same all year round except about now. I saw the temps were down around 30 degrees. Well, it appears I am sick again.
I have been enjoying a much needed restful weekend.
I took an off day from fitness yesterday and my husband cooked.
It was sweet of him but I think I better take over. My mother and I have dietary
needs, she is diabetic and I have food allergies. When I was working and he was cooking I gained over 50 pounds within a year. He is a bread and pasta person, which I can not eat. Food allergies, bloat and weight gain. I am more low carb, (healthy carbs and non processed foods and he is low fat, quick and easy processed meals.
I love my fresh fruit and veggies. It is the thought that counts, but after almost 30 years of marriage, I have learned I need to keep control in the kitchen. I don't want to gain back all that weight. It has taken over a year just to loose 25 lbs. It's amazing how easy it is to put it on and not in loosing..

Happy Sunday! Watching the Church morning shows this morning..

    Sounds like you have it all in control. NEITHER of us...dh or I...."likes to cook but we manage somehow! I used to be "low-fat" not a good thing....

Have a great week!

    How sweet that your husband cooked. Sounds like he and my hubby probably got their cooking lessons in the same place. But it does make for a nice treat, if you can stomach it! Lol!

    It's great to get back in the saddle. Blogging is an excellent way for self-monitoring. When you verbalize it, it becomes reality.

I had a much needed break from making dinner. My DH found a recipe for a seafood chili! He did it in the slow cooker, and we all could not wait to try it, as it smelled so good. He did not disappoint us.

There was a time when his cooking was not so healthy, but we are learning together.

Enjoy the break from the kitchen every now and then. You deserve it too!!!

    Glad to see you taking control in the kitchen. Have you seen that new vegetti thing. It is supposed to cut veggies like zucchini into pasta style dishes. Looks cool. I think I would like the kitchen more if I had one of those small TVs in there.

    Your husband eats kind of like mine only mine doesn't really watch the fat. He is getting better but is a long way from being as watchful as I am though lately even I haven't been very watchful. I agree that it is extremely hard to lose that which was so easy to gain. Great job on losing that 25!
