  • @Sandra JSweeney Thank you :)

    I am grateful for . . .
    - progress not perfection ... it keeps me motivated
    - SANE tracking ... it is not tedious like calorie counting but does help me detect eating patterns that work best for me vs. those that lead to insane eating e.g. missing lunch leads to insane eating at dinner
    - my morning green smoothy . . . I found one that I like and is easy to make. It is satisfying, quick and sets me up for a good day of SANE eating
  • I am grateful for . . .
    - a productive day yesterday, all the groceries and some SANE food preparation for the week completed
    - the extra long and sound sleep I had last night, maybe because of the strength training I did yesterday
    - re-connection with a friend I worked with years ago
    - the should massage I got yesterday, it's been aching for weeks now and feels so much better today
  • I am grateful for . . .
    - my new cast iron pans. A co-worker from Tennessee was explaining their merits and he was absolutely right. The fish I made last night was delicious and required almost no oil at all.
    - the thumbs up I got from my doctor at my annual check-up yesterday. I am grateful for my health everyday and no longer take it for granted like I did when I was younger
    - my new dishwasher finally arrived yesterday -- we've been washing dishes by hand for months waiting for it to arrive (the old one broke)
  • Hi @LouiseStrong . I love my cast iron pans too. I have some that I inherited from my grandmother that are still going strong. My favourite one (from my grandmother) is a small square pan with an area to fry bacon and two squares for frying eggs -- it makes a really great breakfast. :)
  • @JoAnnRoss Haven't tried bacon and eggs yet ... you're making me hungry for them though :)
  • I am grateful for . . .
    - the great project manager who is managing one of my projects at work, makes my work life so much better
    - the special time in the morning when the whole family is together even though it's only for a few minutes
    - that SANE eating feels more natural everyday
