Monday - Fruit with breakfast, salad with lunch, fruit for snack
Tuesday - Fruit with lunch, salad with dinner
Wednesday - Fruit with breakfast and lunch, salad with dinner

I've having problems right now. I can't see to find that food that I want. Nothing sounds good and nothing hits the spot. I have a hard time keeping myself from nonstop nibbling trying to find the right food. Wish I knew what would sound good. Right now I am going to go get a glass of water and a fresh pear.

New Chapter

My day is winding down. My food intake for the day is finished. Banana with breakfast. Carrot salad with lunch (squash too, but I know that really counts as a starch...I still think veggie). Apple with dinner.

I was going to set a goal today. But nothing has jumped out at me. Fruits and Veggies are always something I have to work at. I would love for them to be automatic one day. I'm still thinking. Maybe my goal for now should just be getting back to blogging. It's amazing how quick you can get out of a routine and how hard it is to get back with it. So for now......blogging is the goal.

Moving Free

The freedom to move is amazing. I feel like a new woman given new energy. When I was at the doctors on Thursday they drained fluid off my knee and gave me a cortisone shot. I am walking better than I have in months. I think walking with a stiff knee, shuffling across the floor, straining to stand up and sit down, took more of a toll on me than I thought. It's amazing how feeling like moving and moving can motivate healthier eating also. It's been a good 18 months since I walked with out pain, either in my foot or knee. I still have pain but feel like I can handle it. I know that the cortisone shots is only a short term fix, but I'll take what I can.

I'm Back, Again!!!

The summer was great. Why I didn't blog.......I don't know. School is under way and going good. Now its time to focus on me.

Update......for those that know of my on going knee problem. I have finally got to the bottom of 20+ years of knee problems. I have a good case of Osteoarthritis. The only cure for Osteoarthritis is a new knee. I have other problems like a torn Meniscus. But to do surgery for that would only aggravate the arthritis. Answer......get a new knee. When.......I'm not sure.

Update 2........Pool. Some may know that I purchased an aquatic exercise pool for my basement. The parts and pieces have been sitting in my basement since the 1st of August. (Frustration) The room in my basement for it is now finished. I hope that with in the next week I can get the pool installed.

So, There are a couple of things that I know will make things easier for my knee. One......getting to exercise in my pool. Two.....get some weight off. I'm sure that most of my faithful readers have given up on me. But I'm back and I hope that you are too.
