Marching On

Had a decent night last night. We had chicken for dinner and I tried roasting some asparagus and it came out really well. I put garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar in the skillet with it and they came out dynamite! Will definitely try that again and with other veggies. No activity to speak of.

Have you tried the new Cinnamon Burst Cheerios?? Dave mentioned he saw an ad so I had my eyes peeled every time I went shopping and I finally found them at Safeway. I have ALWAYS been a Cherrios fan but in my opinion these are the best ones next to the plain. They are not too sweet or fake tasting. These taste like you actually sprinkled cinnamon on your cereal. I highly recommend them! They are 110 per serving (w/o milk) Here is a link to some coupons on Cheerios and other General Mills products.

I have been struggling on the emotional front lately. I think that all of the life occurrences that have transpired over the last 6-9 months has finally caught up to me. I am the type of person who tries to put on the appearance that I am "okay" but inside I am really shaky.  One thing that came to mind while processing all this emotional stuff is that I am feeling and healing instead of stuffing my face and numbing the pain in destructive ways. I am trying to build on my personal resilience. Personal resilience is described as the ability to handle life's obstacles and hardships. Definitely a work in progress! Until next time...

  1. Just tried the cinn cherrios this week, and I love them too. Although, I love cinn on anything!

  2. Haven't tried the cheerios yet but plan to! Good for you on working on ways to deal with emotional stuff instead of "eating" them away.

  3. I think developing personal resilience is a lifelong process. Allowing yourself to feel things is a big part of that, and it's hard, because sometimes the feeling isn't always good. Hang in there - it has been a wild time for you, but it seems like you're dealing with everything really well, all things considered. :)

  4. We are all a work in progress :)....working our way to masterpieces.

    My new favourite snack is fresh strawberries sprinkled with cinnamon.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
