Good Day..... Bad Day..... Good Food...... Bad Food......

It started off a good day, the gym at 6:45am!!
20 minutes treadmill, 20 minutes bike.
Back home, shower, breakfast, work.
Busy morning, remembering to drink water.
Lunchtime, back home, put a wash on,
grab some ham, a pear and a banana.
Oh and a yogurt too.

Back to work for PLT...
Practice Learning Time...
The boss bought cakes:o(
Half half of a chocolate eclair,
Angela had the other.

Back home, get changed, put another wash on.
Check emails and blogs, have a cup of tea.
Put a wash in drier, but another wash on.
Get a text from Clair "Your Tea is Ready!"
"Oop's I'll be there in Five" I text back.
I'm late so drive instead of walk.
I knock on the door "You are Grounded"
I am told, "Sorry" I say...The children laugh.
I am sat down to Pasta and Pizza...
Oh well, can't say no thank you,
this family are on a tight budget
and we don't waste food.
so I enjoyed the pasta and a very small
slice of pizza along with the happy banter of children
around the table.

After the meal, a cup of tea and a white chocolate cookie appear
as I sat on the big sofa that threatens to swallow you.
"You are trying to sabotage me" I say.
"No, I'm not" she says with a mischevious smile.
"You can  to relax tonight"

Because this is the first time I have had a meal
at her house for over 16 months, I did relax and
enjoyed every moment and every morsel.

Good Day Bad Day Good Food Bad Food
Back on track tomorrow....

Mood = Happy
Food  = Happy

Today I am grateful for:

Forgiveness
Reconciliation
Family Hugs

Sometimes an opportunity to reconnect is worth the extra calories it takes to do so. I'd say the calories were well spent. Hope this leads to more good times spent with your daughter and grandkids.

I wanted to thank you for the feedback on my post. I think it must've touched you in the same way that Nina's post at Ornamental touched me... deep inside, and it didn't actually ADD anything new. Rather, stirred up the treasures that have been inside you all along. Kind of like waking a sleeping giant within...

I cried as I wrote parts of it. It was my heart, bare for all the world to see... and I wasn't sure if anyone would "get it".

I am so glad you did.

This journey is full of wonders and discoveries, isn't it??

I have to agree and say that sometimes life is about more than what you eat!

Tammy said...

Happy is worth so much more than counting calories. :)
