The mere mention of food!

Saturday, March 02, 2013

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!!

    It's great that you went without your husband and went for yourself. I always wish my husband would go with me as I like to walk outdoors and it's not always safe.

    Last year I bought my first cellphone (don't laugh) because I do often walk alone. At least I felt better with a phone in my pocket and my husband could check to see I was alright if he couldn't (or wouldn't) come with me.

    Good job my friend. I have been catching up on your blogs and seeing what you have been up to. I will be trying those pancakes sometime soon. Great job not waiting for hubby to come along to go swim. That is the change I needed to get me to start Spark and this journey. Up to that point I had been waiting mentally for things to change as to hubby helping with cooking, or chores or going places and that never happened. I thought for some reason that if we did not make this change together I could never make it. But that was wrong. Once I got it in my head that this was my change and I was the only one who had to make it to see changes in my self.

    Now if you wants to join in all the merrier but if he doesn't no problem but I am going along wether he does or not. I have become much more active since that change. I always wanted to go places and do things but I waited for it to be both of use and that was never gonna happen. So I can happily do what I need and want to do for me and it does not make me mad at him or upset or anything. It is just the way it is and I am pursueing what makes me happy and that is that.
