I watched the news and saw a segment on Food Bloggers/Dieters. They show how to take pictures and make the food look great. This rolls over to Dieters. The better your food looks the more enjoyment you get. One hint they used was to use your best china. Why wait. Make your eating enjoyment memorable. The best hint was to use cloth napkins. Makes your meal feel more elegant. These are such simple things you can do.
I know I have many smaller plates I use for my meals. I can fill the plates up but keep the portions down low. I buy beautiful plates one at a time.
I know I am supposed to just sit and eat but I always have the TV on or I am reading a book. Multitasking. They say this is bad. You need to sit and enjoy the foot one bite at a time and let your stomach come up to your brain. I feel like it wastes time. How about you? Do you multitask while eating?
I am delving into canning and reading up on it. I need a pressure canner. Well, not in the budget. I do have a pressure cooker. I found the instruction book and was so excited to see I have a pressure cooker/canner. Yahoo. It is small and will only do four pint or half pint jars at a time, but that works for me.
I see all the jams use so much sugar. I need to find a recipe with less sugar without compromising the taste and texture. Does anyone out there do any canning?
In two days, I will be hitting my road again with my new friend. She has not been very successful, nor have I. We have agreed to get to the top, or the very least to the bottom of the last really tough hill. If we have to take a rest to get there, we will. I have done it before and I am so much stronger now. I can walk half way up the hill without stopping and my breathing is not horrible. It is my noodle legs that stop me.
It is time to get back on the Bowflex, which I have stopped using. I am seriously paying for it now. The 52DC keeps me on track and I have gotten lazy and not working out very hard. I bought a step and have not even used it once. I was so gung ho and just have shoved everything off. I am struggling getting out of bed. I need BBM to give me a strong lecture or even Lazydays to boom at me. LOL
Okay, I must get to work. I think putting this in words for all to see will help motivate me to get out of bed and get moving.
