What's the best part about grilling out?

Getting out of the kitchen

The flavor of the food

Spending time outdoors

Getting family and friends together

Nothing- I'm not a fan of grilling out

Something else not listed here

For me itís less work in the kitchen and the flavor!

I find it easier to forgive others than to forgive myself. So yes, self forgiveness is a challenge at times.

I'm traveling this week, so I'll be focusing on eating healthy, getting enough exercise, and staying hydrated.

Since it's the beginning of a new week, can you name 3 mini goals you might focus on this week? You know, little things/habits that get in the way of accomplishing big goals.

For me, itís getting in the plain water, watching the snacks and getting in my steps.

Yes, the latest I'll eat is 7pm, eating too late interrupts my sleep. Most days I don't eat after dinner. If I do, it'll be yogurt for dessert.

Almond Butter! I love almonds and this is a great tasting butter that can be used on everything - pancakes, bread, apples, bananas, carrots, celery, ice cream, cake, muffins...

What is one of your favorite words to describe where you are in your journey to wellness right now?

Right now, I think it would be perseverance. Iím trying to move as much as I can but with all my pain, it is difficult. I need to have back surgery and that pain is really wearing on me! My son wants me to have the surgery there and I have found a surgeon there. Yesterday, I went to the surgeonís office here and had my records sent to Des Moines. So now I wait! Praying I hear from them very soon!

What is something you learned about life from those who have "mothered" you?



FOR ME.... Once you commit to something, see it through to the end. Work out any problems that come your way in a positive manner. My mom's quote to me was..."You made your bed, now sleep in it." (You made a decision, now stick to it.)

When you face a craving, how often do you give in to it?

Every time! I can't control myself!

Every time, but a small portion

Most of the time

Sometimes

Hardly ever

Never


FOR ME....I sometimes give into the cravings. If I do give in it is usually just a taste. That seems to calm the beast in me. LOL

Yes- I like to give healthy gift
Sometimes- Depends on the person
No- I'm not going to push it on people
