There is something that needs to be said once again…..

Once again…….there are uglies coming up from out of nowhere and keeping them away is a much harder task more than ever, why?  Their beliefs on some strange social aspect.

Now weighing in on a scale between 130.2 lbs and 143 lbs which varies from season to season because in the warmer month I weight less because I have more opportunities to get out but, when I am in the colder months I tend to gain weight because there is not much to do.   Losing the weight was the hardest thing that I’ve ever done and, the process was rewarding but, there are the downs of losing such weight.

Dancing with Richard Simmons for an hour then doing a 30 minute workout is great and, all but there are those days that the ones whom treated you like garbage want to talk to you about everything anything.   No matter how I tell them I am not interested, I am not in the mood for dealing with garbage or the fact that I do not see any reason to befriend them; they continue to try after leaving me alone for a couple of weeks to see if they can butter me up again.   As usual it does not work how I wish for the day to make a difference in my life that they would not be around but, for so long.

Weightloss has came with the pros and cons that vary from person to person.   Mine seem worse than others but, there are some that have it worse off than me.

Q. Lately I can’t seem to stay awake towards the middle of the afternoon. I drink coffee but still feel sluggish even though all I’ve done is sit at my desk all day. What’s worse is I can’t stay asleep through the night, despite how tired I am when I lay down. My productivity is suffering, and anything “fun” is out of the question due to lack of energy. Is there anything I can do to boost my energy?

A. There are a couple of things to consider: activity and nutrition. Exercise is a proven energy-booster, especially in the morning. When you exercise, your body responds by releasing endorphins and adrenaline— these work together to boost mood and energy. Revving your metabolism through exercise will keep you going all day. Secondly, if your “fuel” comes processed, sugared, or frosted, then you’re on a dangerous roller coaster. High sugar intake results in energy slumps. Your pancreas has to secrete a lot of insulin to take in all of the sugar and blood sugar levels plummet due to the high insulin. You’re left feeling dead tired—along with having another sugar craving! Beat the slump by exercising and having protein-rich snacks throughout the day.

Interesting times

last month my mother and I went to the apartment of our old neighbor whom was an older man with adult children from Zimbabwe and; five month prior he lost his second wife whom I understood he was married too since 1968.

My mother and his wife use to go walking together but, the fact of the matter is this gentleman told me and my mother that he had feeling for my mother for a long time.   That brought many questions to our minds did he have feelings for me mother before his wife died or after his wife died?

I felt that five months was not a long enough time to grieve but, I felt that if he did have strong feelings for my mother for a long time it was before his wife passed away and I did not like that at all.

Now that she is free of him, I think she has more time to work on herself which is more important than bringing in a man that she does not want in her life.

I was not surprise that when he invited my mother for a drink last month he was going to tell her what he felt about her; if I had not tagged along she would not have went to his apartment.

I do know that my mom is good at keeping men at bay so, I wonder what next chap is going to have strong feelings for her.  I seeing that this one will have to look in other places.
