Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all!!!

Well here it is another Christmas time together and I hope you

all have had a wonderful year….life for me has been really good

this year.  I have my first grandchild….a new job so I don’t have

to work 7 days a week even though it has proved to be very trying

at times. I have a new home that is really cozy. I have really been

blessed this year, I pray that you have had the same type of year if

not I hope and pray that maybe next year will be wonderful for you.

I want to wish you all the Merriest of Christmas’s and the Happiest

of New Years.

Healthy Eating Pyramid

Healthy Eating Pyramid

Use a food pyramid that’s actually based on the latest and best science.

1. Start with exercise. A healthy diet is built on a base of regular exercise, which keeps calories in balance and weight in check. Read five quick tips for staying active and getting to your healthy weight, and a dozen ideas for fitting exercise into your life.

2. Focus on food, not grams. The Healthy Eating Pyramid doesn’t worry about specific servings or grams of food, so neither should you. It’s a simple, general guide to how you should eat when you eat.

3. Go with plants. Eating a plant-based diet is healthiest. Choose plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and healthy fats, like olive and canola oil. Check out these delicious healthy recipes that bring the Healthy Eating Pyramid into your kitchen.

4. Cut way back on American staples. Red meat and processed meat, refined grains, potatoes, sugary drinks, and salty snacks are part of American culture, but they’re also really unhealthy. Go for a plant-based diet rich in non-starchy vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. And if you eat meat, fish and poultry are the best choices.

5. Take a multivitamin, and maybe have a drink. Taking a multivitamin can be a good nutrition insurance policy. Moderate drinking for many people can have real health benefits, but it’s not for everyone. Those who don’t drink shouldn’t feel that they need to start.

We can’t look at a pyramid these days without thinking of food and healthy eating. There was the U.S. government’s Food Guide Pyramid, followed by its replacement, My Pyramid, which was basically the same thing, just pitched on its side. The problem was that these efforts, while generally well intentioned, have been quite flawed at actually showing people what makes up a healthy diet. Why? Their recommendations have often been based on out-of-date science and influenced by people with business interests in their messages. The newly-unveiled MyPlate icon is an improvement, yet still doesn’t go far enough to show people how to make the healthiest choices.

But, there’s a better alternative: the Healthy Eating Pyramid, built by the faculty in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Read about why the Dietary Guidelines for Americans is a step in the right direction, but does not go far enough.

Based on the latest science, and unaffected by businesses and organizations with a stake in its messages, the Healthy Eating Pyramid is a simple, trustworthy guide to choosing a healthy diet. Its foundation is daily exercise and weight control, since these two related elements strongly influence your chances of staying healthy. The Healthy Eating Pyramid builds from there, showing that you should eat more foods from the bottom part of the pyramid (vegetables, whole grains) and less from the top (red meat, refined grains, sugary drinks, and salt).

Willow Lake

I took a little walk after sun set yesterday and here are some pics of the walking trail and lake where I live.

This place is so beautiful I really love it here!!   It’s nice and quiet….the neighbors are friendly except my neighbors dog who loves to bite, will have to keep an eye on her.

I’m all moved in and expecting all my friends and family to come together on Saturday for a big party!!! Should be lots of fun!

New Home part 2

What is it about a new home that brings new life to a person?

I have been so excited about this move for a while and now it

has proved to be such a headache. The movers first broke my

fav flower-pot and now they have lost the keys to my filing

cabinet. I called yesterday to see if maybe they had pocketed the

keys because they were still in the cabinet when I saw them last,

the owner said he would check and call me back. The end of the day

came and went with no word, so I called this morning well guess

what they have no idea what happened to the keys, however he

offered to send a lock smith to un lock a file cabinet that only cost

$35.00 isn’t it going to cost more to unlock then buy a new one???

I am so frustrated I don’t  know what to do!!!

Oh well I was just hoping to get most of my things put away before

the weekend so I can enjoy my new space.  I really wanted to make

a trip down to the pool and maybe lay out some this weekend but

things are not moving along like I would want them to.

The new microwave is still not in because the guys are too busy

doing other things for the owner and they still have not brought my

desk and  rug for the living room from storage.

New the new bed and kitchen table is in but no help to et them to the

house. I hate moving !!!!~! I hope this will be my last move ever!!

Boy do I need to spend some time in meditation so I can calm down!
