I hear you. Everything in moderation. Getting older sucks. Sometimes I forget I am the age I am and think I can eat what I did when I was in my teens. Nope. Pay for it everytime.

    I've never been a chocolate kind of person, wasn't uncommon for me to work on a bar for WEEKS, I actually swapped some of my candy for those halloween kisses that most people find disgusting, and don't think i can ever recall craving it. HOWEVER, I still have very few safe foods in my diet and i found a chocolate bar that's able to tick several of my "must" boxes and dang, I'm eating a LOT of those lately
    🍫

    • Made in Canada -yup, in Quebec
    • Certified gluten free so i can avoid oats (YES, they can contain gluten from cross contamination in the fields!!)
    • Certified Organic so the sugar is safe (YES, that's a thing as well, sigh)-Yup, the factory is even inspected to be sure cleaning supplies are safe for me!
    • Fair Trade so I know the people who grow and harvest the cocoa beans are making a fair & equal living
    • No added ingredients that don't belong in my food - all the gums, preservatives etc YUP the ones I love have only 3 or 4 ingredient, PERIOD!
    The two I'm able to eat are 70% dark chocolate - organic cocoa mass, organic cane sugar, organic cocoa butter

    And my FAVOURITE, unfortunately only comes in a teeny-tiny stick that costs about $3.00 😱
    60% Dark Chocolate with Himalayan Salt

    Okay, so I've been thinking sensibly until now, staying safe, masking, distancing, not going anywhere but grocery store. Then, whammo, pin code in the email. Just booked the first week of May at CSR with 30% off. Let's hope the vaccine works out and I can actually go. I'm hoping to retire April 30, 2021 and was feeling down that I wouldn't have a retirement trip. I feel more positive today. It's room only, so I can cancel up to 5 days ahead, according to the fine print. I know, I know, but its helping me for now.

    I had thought maybe an April trip, but news of the vaccine has me thinking maybe fall instead. Hopefully by then things will have settled and people will be getting immunized. But we'll see as things go. I do have that PIN as well, and it's good to book with until mid-March. Time to think on options. April was looking nice for the chance of direct flights, any other time we'll have to fly from Toronto or Montreal I think.

    Either way, I need to get back on track, I'm sure I have gained back what I lost over the summer. I bought a bunch of veggies and fruit yesterday, lean meats and no chips! Gotta get moving again and eating better.

    How's everyone doing out there? Anyone feeling positive about the promising results of the vaccine trials? Hopefully it all works out the way we hope and we can start to get a win against COVID in early spring. Haven't lost any weight, but I'm still walking and trying to increase my steps with each walk. I've been lazy about my strengthening exercises though. I'm committed to starting those again today. I hope everyone is well and dealing with the new restrictions okay. It's tough, but it's worth doing.

    I started walking again this week. Ran into someone I haven't seen in months and he asked how my dog was doing. I had to tell him she died the beginning of June. This was part of the reason I stopped walking outside. Too many questions from well intentioned people about my missing dog.

    There can't be anyone left in the neighbourhood who doesn't know at this point. Throws me for a loop each time it happens.

    Need to put my big girl panties on and keep walking.

    I feel your pain. For a long time after my dog died, I would have to take a minute to compose myself every time someone asked me about him. I still tear up now and then thinking of him. 7 years later I still haven't been able to welcome another dog into my life. I take care of the other dogs in the family though, when they go on vacation. I get a little dog love, and they get the comfort of knowing their furry friend is staying with someone who loves them. Hugs.

    Oh I’m sorry to hear that. We have two dogs and they are family to us. I‘m sure that must be hurtful to be reminded every time you walk . Maybe try a brand new route for awhile?

    I had to shovel today. Well, the plough left a big pile of boulders at the end of my driveway so I needed to clear that up in case I need to get out, but oh it was heavy! I have some kind of tendonitis in my right arm from the computer and it was painful to shovel, going to be a long winter I guess!
