Oh they are sooo good! We always make sure to cruise into the store for our free piece of chocolate. I’ve been clinging to the false hope I’d still be able to do our DVC stay this Saturday. Not happening even if they did reopen. United has cancelled all direct flights from Newark to Orlando....they were going to route us thru DC on the way down and Houston on the way back. 12 hour days. Nope.I would kill for one of the sundaes from Ghirardelli in Disney Springs!
The important thing is not to beat yourself up over it.I had a rough day yesterday, ate too many pears and ice cream cones. There is no junk in my home so ice cream cones were the closest to cookies. Now they can’t be in my home either.
I had such a belly ache and it was a slow go this morning probably because of the extra sugar. So far today, ok with the food.
One thing I have kept up with is my 5 miles a day. I read somewhere just exercising and eating right gives an immediate boost to your immune system even if even you have an underlying condition. Now if I can only find the article to post.
You can exclude the age part because we can't fix that. But you can eliminate all high carb foods (added sugar, pasta, rice, bread, and potatoes) and processed foods along with including a minimum 30 minutes per day of exercise in order to feel better and live with less inflammation (chronic inflammation is the source of many illnesses).A sobering fact regarding the virus and deaths. 80% or was it higher had diabetes, hypertension, heart issues or was very elderly. A good incentive to re-examine ones eating, drinking and exercise habits.
You are on Rick's diet, Bill. All of those things, he is eating regularly. He bakes his own banana bread, and I stay away from the kitchen and the delicious smell. His recipe is so good. It's got sour cream in it, and you actually put cinnamon sugar in the little pans to coat the outside of the bread with sugary goodness. He also makes Ghirardelli brownies at least once a week. Chips and salsa and chips and queso are his nighttime snack. He hasn't gained weight, however. He is perpetually thin.This quarantine has me up about 10 pounds. I know why. It has more to do with chips, salsa, brownies, banana bread and not enough real exercise. I keep telling myself to watch it but then someone will make something good and instead of watching I'm eating.
I am at a relatively healthy weight for my age and height. I limit myself to one sweet treat in the afternoon. But I will never eliminate bread, pasta, rice or potatoes from my diet. I don’t eat large portions of these items. This is what Weight Watchers helped me with....portion control. Everyone is different. And your body changes over time. I was always too skinny. Ate everything but never gained weight until it hit my 40’s. And when I think about what my grandma ate...lots of starches and treats, and she lived to be 90.You can exclude the age part because we can't fix that.

Living a better life is a choice.
You are bad Cindy. So bad, lol. I started druling reading about Rick's munchies.You are on Rick's diet, Bill. All of those things, he is eating regularly.

Last year I found a stretch class based on that same technique. My instructor was trained by Miranda. I loved it. Then the instructor went to St. Pete for her annual winter trip. I have no idea if she has returned.. . .
I decided that wasn't going to work long term so I looked up on Directv to see what exercise shows were available. I found one series called "Classical Stretch" on PBS and I'm loving it. They are older shower, filmed between 2012 and 2014. They were filmed in Jamaica so there is always a beautiful background. And even though it's all stretch, she works all of the body. It's just what I need. Each session is 30 minutes long.
The portions for these meals seem to monitor themselves. DH, DD and now BIL are eating the food I'm planning. The fat (not counted), protein (not counting) and fiber are primary sources. They satisfy and it's easier to say enough is enough.
Ouch, sounds like a sprain I had years ago. For me it was a twist in a heeled boot that just went the wrong way. It took a few weeks to get better, no weight was to be put on it for the first few days and it was wrapped to help with the swelling as well as kept elevated, by the time it heeled I needed some physical therapy.I just got my lab test results back earlier this week. My cholesterol numbers were fantastic. I attribute that to eating healthier food at home, with significantly lower saturated fats intake.
Then today, boohoo... I fell and twisted my ankle badly in a covered dip below some grass at Hole 10 on the golf course. The swelling came on very quickly and I had to get out of my shoes, and I could not put any weight on that foot. We came home right away. My ankle swelled to three times the size. My husband played nurse and has been keeping my ankle iced, rotating out the ice packs every 30 minutes. My ankle is so inflamed that I could not even feel the cold in the ice packs. I have now taken 2 Ibuprofen and will take another one before bed time. It has really helped with my pain and probably swelling. The swelling has gone down a little and it is now developing a large blue area under the skin. I don't know how I could be so messed up and I have never sprained my ankle that badly. I had a menu planned for this week, today I was supposed to be making crab cakes... argh.
Oh, we use one of the office swivel roller chairs as my wheelchair to get me to the bathroom. Tonight is going to be rough.
