Busy and Balanced

Part of the joy (and responsibility) of giving up excess food for a full life means I sometimes get so busy I have less time for some of the many, many things I really enjoy doing. This week I am too busy  to]sit and write many posts. Others can do it but I am not very good at juggling. So I am going to keep today's post brief.

My food remains sane and balanced. I have not had any cravings for a while now, which is beyond wonderful.  My body feels good and I notice I am standing straighter again since I increased my weights and core training.

I have not joined any cleanse-parties, name your favorite-flavor-everyday-this-month groups or food/fitness challenges. I am concentrating on what I will do every day for the rest of my life and looking forward to the possibility that my life will be a longer one because of it. Next month maybe I will find something to play with for the month.

I hope everyone who is a mommy has a wonderful Mother's Day. I hope everyone who has a mom shares some love with their mommy everyday and not just this Sunday. I hope anyone who misses their mom (or a child) will find peace in their hearts this Mother' Day and share their love with the rest of the world.

Mother's Day is not one of my overeating holidays. I traditionally have shrimp salad and a Corona Beer.  I drink a Corona about three times a year. This year I am making the shrimp salad at home. Not sure if I will have the beer this year.

Keep it Light. Keep it honest. Keep it Simple.

My thoughts are with you, especially, this Mother's Day. Salad from home sounds smart and peaceful.

Happy Mother's Day! I gotta treat my momma-body right and not overeat either. I think we will be going out to Lake Michigan for a walk by our mini-ocean to admire the sparkling waves and seagulls overhead. It can't get better than that. :D

Mother's Day brings up all sorts of emotions, particularly for those of us who have lost mothers and grandmothers. This year, I also am thinking about my own daughters who are mothers. We need the memories, and we need to be able to look ahead to the wonderful times before us. Life is so full of surprises, and we who are mothers are so blessed.

E. Jane - We certainly are.

Marion - Sounds beautiful. I hope your weather agreed with your plans.

Vickie - the salad was amazing. I do not know why I never made it at home before - oh yes I do. - Laziness! For now on shrimp salad comes only from the ocean and my kitchen.
