When it comes to guilty pleasures, what is yours? Do you like Coffee, wine, and/or chocolate?  I sure do! All three!! What else do you enjoy?

Have you found things you like during this time of staying home (during the Coronavirus pandemic) that you didn’t like before or hadn’t thought you would like?

I normally eat really good and only splurge every now and then on things that are yummy but not really good for me and a healthy body.  But, during this time at home, I have been baking sweets and bread that I normally would not.  So, in doing so I have done a little overindulging. Ha! Once I realized I was doing this, I started giving the things I was cooking to friends and family.  😉

I have also made things that are not bad for me, like soups.  So, not all weight gaining foods. Thank goodness!

I realize I need to make a conscious effort to start eating better again, which I am beginning to do now.  I will continue to keep myself busy.  I will bake some things but I know not to overdo, and if it is too much for me, I will freeze for another time to enjoy in smaller portions.

So what are things you have indulged in during this time and what do you like? What are you doing to keep yourself busy?

Continue to stay healthy, safe and happy!

Boy, I am feeling old!

So, I’m feeling old.  Not because of how I feel but the things I have to do health wise at my age! Ugh!

I went to the doctor this past Wednesday to have my toes looked at where I sliced them open with a slate slab in my walkway about two weeks ago.  I am taking really good care of them and she said they are healing really well.

I then asked her about several things I was concerned about and I now (about to turn 52 on Sunday) am at an age that I have to go through certain testing to make sure all is okay with my body.  This includes colonoscopy, annual mammograms (of which I have to do now anyway, because they found a non-cancerous lump in my right breast) and because I am worried about my snoring (yes, I said snoring!) getting worse, I will be having a sleep apnea test done! Oh and I have a really hard time losing weight, no matter what I do and know that would help with the snoring, so we discussed options.  See what I mean?!? I feel like my body is going against the way I feel! *rolling eyes*

Why can’t our bodies not age, just stay young looking and feeling until we pass?? That would be great, wouldn’t it??!! 🙂

I do take care of myself and my body at least.  I don’t want anything creeping up and shocking me, so I continue to keep up with myself, try to eat healthy and stay active.  It’s all we can do, right?

So, even though I don’t feel my age, I have to do the things that make sure I continue to feel good in this body of mine.  I hope you all are as well!!

Love you all! <3
