Snowmageddon Day 2

Hello My Lovelies and Gents,

Well Snowmageddon continues. The snow is melting, but the roads are still icy. Today was Day 2 home.

I was prepared to go to see two of my clients today, but alas, their driveway was inaccessible.  I was torn all day. I was part hoping that they would cancel. I have been so productive these past two days.  I was also part begging for a reason to get out of the house.

School is closed tomorrow. The roads around pre-school are still icy. The text went out to all of the teachers asking if we wanted to open anyway, make it a teacher work day, or not come in. Some of us are begging to go in. Work day it is.

Once again I made a To Do List today. The top of my list was 15,000 steps. I came in short yesterday at 13,000. My knee started to bother me so I stopped. I was pretty happy with those steps though. A day at home could easily be a 2-3000 step day.  I did pretty well all things considered. Sadly I have been slightly less mobile today because I thought that I was going out. I'm still close to the 10,000 steps though. I'll have to get moving once I finish this.

So the good news is that I tried on my dress today.  Hooray I don't have to go shopping. With outside help it will zip. It will be tight, but it will work. Heather has already agreed to help. Although she's also going to be the end of me. Haha.  She is bringing me a Pink Moscato cupcake with Cherry Blossom icing to taste next weekend. I'm dying here.



Yes please!  Wrap me in whatever you want. I can't wait to taste it.

*****

I want super credit for being home for two days with a container of Fisher's Caramel Popcorn at my feet and not opening it.  I mean I want SERIOUS Credit.  I don't know how I have done it. Sheer willpower I suppose.  I have not snacked at all.  I had oatmeal again for breakfast and another killer salad. This one included lots of chick peas. I anticipate a nice gassy night.


I'm sorry, I can't go on. I now have Crackcorn on my brain. Yes, you heard me. That's what I call it. It's soooooo good and addicting, it's like crack. Not that I have ever had crack, let's be clear on that.

Fisher's popcorn is a treat that I would get while visiting Dad. It's so good that I can't even put it into words. Well they have a shipping option now. Mom has ordered it for me a few times to cheer me up. It works. So technically I should be allowed to have some right now right?

I'm struggling with training for the Half Marathon this week. I finally got rid of the congestion and the snow got me. I am out of town on Saturday. I could go to the gym early in the morning and then drive the 2 hours up and back by myself. Or I could leave earlier and ride with some friends. I said I would try to get my miles in at the gym this week first. Um...you suck snow.

I will go to the gym after preschool tomorrow. That is a promise. I have no choice.

Have a Blessed Evening,

Jennie

Random Wednesday: Curling, Vegetarian recipe, Snow Day, and Moist Cake...te he #Moist

Happy Random Wednesday,

I'm trying not to get too excited, but I think one of my bucket list items is going to come true soon. I've not been shy about my love for the sport of Curling. I mean seriously, my idea of the best first date ever would be to take me to some curling lessons.

I'm not quite signed up for lessons, but Ms. Amy and I are planning on visiting the Charlotte Curling Center for one of it's Open Houses during the Olympics. No reservation is necessary and we can go throw a rock and do a little sweeping.  I'm totally geeking out.

*****

My dear sweet friend Gabe is somewhat of a chef and he shared this lovely recipe with me and I shall share it with you. It looks delicious.


Everything was purchased at Trader Joe's. It involves no cooking and the goat cheese can be substituted with lowfat greek yogurt.

dolmas with tomato sauce and olive oil with roasted Brussels, Meyer lemon, goat cheese, oregano

*****

Today is a Snow Day. Hooray! I am happy that we knew early last night that school was closed today. I didn't want to have to wake up for the news. I did wake up early though and it was raining. So I stayed in bed and listened to an audio book and saw the rain turn to a beautiful snow.

I stayed there for a little while, but eventually I got up and showered. While I was eating breakfast I made my Snow Day To Do list. I wanted to make sure that the day was not spent on Candy Crush. The very first thing on my list is: 15,000 steps. I'm over halfway there so I'm pretty confidant that I'll get it. YAY. Go Me!

Naturally the first thing that I knocked off of the list was doing my nails. Haha. I wanted to make sure that my list was productive as well as relaxing. We haven't gotten the call yet for tomorrow, but if we have another snow day, then there will be another list.



*****

It's hard to drink cold water when it's cold. So I'm trying to some of my water intake through hot tea. I'm like a hot tea junkie. I have tea bags and loose tea. I have Gingerbread tea. I have Peppermint tea.  I have gone to bed every night with a mug of Candy Cane tea.

I'm super sad that Teavana.com closed. According to the site though, there are two locations still open in the area. I'll have to go check them out soon.

*****

DAMN YOU SNOW!

Tonight was supposed to be Book Club. The month's book is The Great Gatsby. It's one of my favorite of all time. I was very excited to talk about it. And I was very excited about meeting at Panera. I have been salivating over Tomato soup and grilled cheese. And today would be the PERFECT day for it. Hmm...I may be able to make my own tonight. It's not the same, but we'll see.

I have been very good today: oatmeal for breakfast and a very large spinach/grilled chicken garden salad for lunch.

*****

It's time for another good plug for my St. Jude Heroes team.

St. Jude does so much for Childhood cancer. Not only does it do research on how to end it, but it also covers all expenses for the families. They have enough to deal with. They shouldn't have to worry about expenses at this time.   Please help me reach my $500 goal. I'm still $400 short.

*****

I still haven't tried on the dress that I am hoping to wear in 10 days. I guess I need to do that. Otherwise I need to go shopping. BAH. I don't want to do this. I would give anything to be able to wear my flannel pajamas and sweatshirt to the Wedding Reception.

I can't remember if I mentioned that I won't be doing the Polar Plunge this year. My heart is broken over it. But, I can't go north two weekends in a row. So the Wedding wins.

Did I mention that Heather is making the cupcakes? She is pure torture. All I get these days are texts with flavors and pictures of the most amazing cakes and cupcakes. She made the most amazing cake for Dad's Celebration of Life. Oh it was gorgeous and truly the most delicious cake that I've ever eaten.

It was so MOIST! Te he #Moist.  The cake was Choco expresso with Swiss Meringue and it was heave. It was a little strange to eat my dad's face though. Only stranger when I realized that someone else at the party ate my face. Ack!




Have a Blessed Evening,

Jennie

You want some fruit? I got your fruit!

Hello My Lovelies and Gents,

I've been wanting to write this since Sunday, but alas I was stricken with a migraine yesterday, I feel much better today, plus we have a snow day tomorrow so YAY.

I used to stress out about what food to bring to an event. These days I don't give it a second thought. Fruit!  You want fruit? I got your fruit.  I bring fruit to EVERYTHING.

This weekend I have a reunion for a Retreat weekend. I'm supposed to bring a dish. It's two hours away though. Fruit!

Since July I have been active with a meet up group that supplies and distributes food to the homeless in Charlotte every other week. It's a pretty awesome thing.  People sign up and bring what they can. The outpouring of love and compassion is humbling. The only thing is that you don't have any idea what other people are bringing. There are some regulars who you can count on for certain things. I've gotten Ms. Miracle (one of my most favorite people in the world) involved. She has been good for coffee and hot meals. It warms my heart.

I am good for fruit!  Oranges and bananas are great. I prefer cuties and halos to larger oranges because they are easier to peel. This past weekend we had 6 wagons full of food and items to help keep warm. My wagon was the fruit wagon. And I hawked it like a beast. Every time we would stop to offer someone food I was in there saying "You want some fruit? I got your fruit!"  I said it so much it became a running gag. But, you know what? People wanted the fruit. *heart*

I signed up for the meet up on New Year's Eve. I had mentioned this to my family in case they wanted to provide some items. My aunt wasn't able to join us, but she mailed me some money. It didn't come in until after New Year's. I was excited to use it for this past Sunday. I got oranges, bananas, crackers, and individual flavor packets for bottles of water. I was so happy for this donation. I would happily accept more. Hint Hint. Any and all assistance is welcome.

I always struggle when when it comes to providing food for people who don't access to proper nutrition. I always want to limit the sugar and the crap. Healthy options are always received well. There will always be a few people who are excited and receptive, but for the most part the crap wins. It's hardly stereotypical of any one group of people. Most people will choose the crap over healthy. That's just how it is. So frustrating.

A few posts ago I mentioned that at church we work with some neighborhood kids with a tutoring program. We also provide dinner. The program is called Hot Dogs and Homework. It's quick, simple, and cheap. When I took over the program one of the first things that I wanted to do was change the menu. We tried it. We spent hours making elaborate tasty and healthier options. The first thing they asked: Do you have any hot dogs?

If you don't start the healthy eating at a young age, then it's just that much harder to change eating habits later. Very few people will swap out french fries for apple fries without previous eating patterns.  Just come and spend a day at preschool with me. I cringe on a regular basis. Some kids come in with just cookies and cake in their lunch. Some kids have just fruit. That's good, except "where is the protein?"  There are some kids who have wonderful lunches, but for the most part it's hard to watch.

I love how the kids react when we provide fruit or vegetables as a special snack that goes with our lesson. Last week our theme for the day was: Orange (the fruit and the color). As a surprise I brought in some cuties. OMG. One girl was popping them so fast I had to remind her to chew. Only one kid didn't eat one slice of orange. Everyone else asked for more.

You want some fruit? I got your fruit!

Have a Blessed Evening,

Jennie

Not ready to let go of some things: Christmas & Football

Hello my Lovelies and Gents,

Well the emotional hits just keep coming. I took down my Christmas tree last night and you would have thought I cut a limb off. I mean I physically ached when I did it. I dragged it on as long as I could and then the minute that the tree was zipped up in the storage bag my eyes started to leak.

It had been a rough week at pre-school and we were in the middle of a rain storm. I was a little tired and blue to begin with, but I really just didn't want to put the Christmas lights away. I wasn't ready to let go.

That also applies to football. Tonight the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Atlanta Falcons to advance to the NFC Championship next week.  I had been full of anxiety over it all day.  The backstory on this is that I grew up bleeding green. I lived and breathed Philadelphia Eagles. We were in a serious relationship together.  Eight years ago they made some changes that I didn't agree with and we broke up. I became a fan of another team, but you never forget your first love and you never get that feeling again. No matter how much I supported and love my other team, it was never the same.  They made another change a couple of years ago and that made me happy. I casually supported them again.  I started telling people that we were casually dating.

During my last weekend with Dad the game was not televised at his place. Normally we would have gone somewhere to watch it, but that wasn't an option. Thankfully I was able to watch it on my phone and tell him a play by play. They won that day and it generated a nice smile from him. He passed away that night.

I've been wearing his Eagles sweatshirt 2 to 3 times a week ever since. It doesn't seem to matter what the weather is like. I wear the sweatshirt.

I knew my anxiety was high today, but I had no idea. My eyes started to leak at the start of the game. I was a basket case the whole time. I'm not ready for their season to end. He's still with me on Sundays when I watch. Luckily we still have at least another week.

Naturally I stress ate during the game. I have a giant tub of thin sourdough pretzels. I had splurged on some honey mustard to dip them in this week. They weren't true Philly Soft Pretzels, but it would have to do.

I kept myself from stopping at the store on my way home today. I knew I would buy a frozen pizza or some mozzarella sticks or something else. The desire to stuff my face was strong today.

It didn't help that earlier in the day I was at an event that was serving food to the neighborhood near church. We've been working with the kids there for over a year.  Working with them has been the biggest joy and equally a giant source of stress. We are currently working on revamping the program. And while I have needed the time off as a breather, I have also missed the buggers very much. Today when I got out of the car several young men came running at me to say hi. One of the guys serving said I was like a rockstar getting out of my car. LOl. Sometimes that's how I feel.  These kids all hold a piece of my heart. So I was overjoyed when a group f people decided to provide lunch in their neighborhood once a month. I had a late breakfast (eggs, spinach, tomatoes, and whole wheat toast) so I wasn't really hungry. Towards the end of the event I went over to the table to fill up a to go container. I was excited about the orzo salad and that took up half of my container. While I was adding the chicken another woman who was getting her to go containers said about me "She looks like me. She looks like she likes to eat just like I do."  That's pretty much that last thing a former Fat girl wants to hear. It was like a knife to my gut. I hope she was referring to the plate I was filling and not something else.

Happily the day got better. After the Eagles won, I got to facetime with my brother and the nephews. It was the next best thing to being able to talk to Dad after the game.



Have a Blessed Evening,

Jennie

One Step Forward Two Steps Back

Hello Beautiful People,

I've recovered from yesterday, but very slowly.  I went to bed very agitated. I was also a tad stuffy. I've been wiping noses all week and I think it's gotten to me.

Yesterday took it's toll physically and mentally. Today I seemed much better outwardly, but inwardly I wanted nothing to do with any other human being. I just wanted to hole up and be by myself. I am home and in bed and I don't want to get out. If I could call in sick, I would.  But, I know that's a bad idea.

Tuesday when I got home I took down the ornaments from my Christmas Tree. Tonight I was supposed to take down the lights and and the tree. Instead I put away 80% of the Christmas presents that were under the tree and ate 90% of the chocolate I have.  And I've regretted it every bit that I took. I've had better days.

The last two nights I've gone to bed with a scratchy throat. That is not the case tonight. Perhaps I am lucky and will avoid getting sick. I have not been to the gym in 3 days. And I feel it. I'm pretty sure that I would have gotten sick from exhaustion. There are some sicknesses you can workout through, but I know my body. I get sick when I'm exhausted, so if I workout while I'm on the fringe, there's a very good chance that I would get sicker.

I really hope I feel better in the morning. The desire to go the gym tomorrow is great. I need both the treadmill and they massage. My neck is getting stiff. Then again the idea of coming home after preschool and climbing into bed feels like a winning idea.

How much of this is physical? Some. And how much of this is mental? Most.

A healthy and fit lifestyle is mostly mental. Distance training is mostly mental. This is when I could really use a gym buddy.  Knowing someone will be there makes it so much harder to bail.

I will say that my legs are enjoying the break. My calf is starting to get a little tight. This is not good. I'm stretching it like crazy and really don't want my Plantar Fasciitis back. No thank you.

I would like to go on, but my foot is restless and I can't keep my eyes open. So it's a good day to close down early.

Have a Blessed Evening,
Jennie
xoxo

Random Wednesday: 3 tissue cry day, St. Jude Hero, XXL shirts, and carrots

Happy Random Wednesday my Lovelies and Gents,

Today was a bad day. Since Dad passed I've had mostly bad days, but I have had a handful of good days. Today was a bad day. I cannot wait until the time when a dream with my dad in it will bring me warmth and comfort. I'm just not there yet.

Last night Dad visited my dream. It was a short dream and in it we didn't spend too much time together, but I was happy in the dream. And then I woke up and I felt the loss again and it felt like a giant hole opened up under my bed and I couldn't seem to hold on.

I cried the entire drive to pre-school this morning. I cried at Starbucks this afternoon. And I cried when I started writing this blog post. It's a 3 tissue day today.

Add to that a pretty crazy day and I'm not sure how I didn't find myself inhaling a plate of french fries somewhere.   My patience level with the kids today was VERY thin.

I had originally planned to go to the gym today. When I went to bed that was still the plan. But, as I struggled to function this morning I changed my mind. My anxiety level was on High Alert. Sometimes the treadmill is good for me mentally and sometimes I know when it would be futile. My mind would have been somewhere else. So I packed my bags to get some work done in my hours between obligations. I figured that I would take up residence in Starbucks for a few hours and work. But, when the last kid left I was about to burst. So instead I decided I needed to decompress and relax. So I planned on reading for an hour before coming back to church and working for a couple of hours.

I enjoyed my read, but I was still completely distracted.

I had a long talk with my Pastor last month about my emotions. I had completely lost my temper the week before and I lost control of myself. It scared me. I am mad often, but I mean I screamed and screamed and screamed at some people. I raise my voice often, but I couldn't seem to stop myself.

I wish I had the diagram he made for me. He wrote out a line from 1 to 10. He said in general that is a range of emotions.  I would normally function around a 3ish and when I would get really angry maybe that pushed me to a 7 or 8, but there was still room. Since Dad got sick and passed  my normal is probably more like a 6. So when I got really angry I pushed to a 10 and lost control.  It makes sense and I've tried to keep that in mind and try to keep myself from a 10.

*****

On Saturday when Ms. Amy and I went to Zoe's for lunch I also ordered a meal to take home. I was trying to be cool and place the order on the app on my phone while we were still sitting and talking. There were a lot of technical difficulties, but I had noticed a new option for a side on the app: Cauliflower rice. Hmm...I've heard a lot about this, and I've tried to like cauliflower before, I just didn't, but I was willing to try it.

I actually didn't eat it until last night and today. It wasn't bad. I might actually order it again.

*****

Guess what came this week. My St. Jude Hero race singlet arrived. Hooray!  I'm always weary about ordering sizes without seeing them in person. I have boobs and curves. So I ordered an XL. Um...I'm hoping I'll be able to get into this one.

The picture makes it look huge, but I assure you it is not. I still love it though and can't wait to wear it.

If you would like to contribute to my fundraising goal please feel free to share this with all of your friends and family:

http://heroes.stjude.org/Jennie_Henderson

*****

Monday night I saw someone that I hadn't seen in a month or so. The first thing he said was "You look like you've lost weight." My first thought was "well I have been to the gym 6 days in a row". That probably wasn't the reason though. While I do feel better and I know there is some body shifting going on, I'm pretty sure that wasn't it.

The more likely reason is because I was wearing one of my old sweatshirts and jeans. Lately on days that I woke up really missing my Dad I would wear one of his sweatshirts. They are XXL and I don't care. They make me feel like he is with me.

I happen to be wearing one today.  Today I'm sporting his LaSalle University Sweatshirt. I think it's my favorite.



*****

I don't know what's going on, but I am having a hard time finding carrots in the stores this week.  I find this very troubling.



Have a Blessed Evening,

Jennie

Getting all sexy with Fiber

Hello Beautiful People,

It's about to get all sorts of sexy up in here.  Turn down the lights. Light some candles. Pour yourself a glass of wine. And let's talk about fiber!

Last night was awful. I mean it was AWFUL!  So last we met I had gone to the grocery store after the gym and got a salad before Room in the Inn. Well it was a mighty darn good salad. It was so full of fiber that I was in pain all night.

I started not to feel so good during Room in the Inn. I sat and had a small plate of pasta and meatballs with our guests. It was delicious, but it was also a little heavy for me and I was doing everything that I could to make myself burp. My jeans felt a little snug. Before I left to go home I stopped in the ladies room. I'll be as delicate as I can, but man I had the biggest fart and felt sooo much better

For the record, before I go on, Ms. Severina (aka Ms. Heather) is probably jumping for joy reading this post. Flatulence is one of her favorite subjects.

I have a 30 minute drive home. It was the most uncomfortable drive EVER. It felt like my insides were trying to escape. It wasn't an "I need to poop" feeling. It was an "I feel like my insides are full of helium" feeling.

It's a good thing I am single. I would have been abandoned immediately. I literally couldn't stop passing gas. Just as I would let one rip and I would feel better, the next bigger one was beginning to build up.  I thought it would never end.  I was a living Saturday Night Live Sketch.

So what brought this on? Well I'm always a tad gassy after my spinach salads.  However, I had a little bit of amnesia when I made my salad and was excited to add some edamame.  Ugh...I sort of forgot that there are some beans that really disagree with me. Soy based beans are not my friends.

Actually they are. They are choc full of fiber and are great for me. I just really hate farting.

Fiber is super important and yet so many people don't really understand it. The days that I studied Fiber for my Sports Nutrition Specialty were super gross, but also very enlightening.

One of the major roles of fiber is to clear your intestine from build-ups that could cause problems, specifically colon cancer.  If you've ever had a difficult poop, and we all know that we all have, then one of two things was missing: Fiber or water. Both are needed for healthy digestion.

I'm pretty open about how regular I am. I mean I'm not inviting anyone to join me in the bathroom, but I'm like clockwork. It comes in handy when you are OCD.  Unexpected poop stops are unwelcome.  Now is not the right time to talk about the consistency of poop, but I will ask you one question: When is your first Number 2 of the day?  If the answer is not: Within an hour of when I wake up, then you are not as regular as you should be.

I eat my fruits and vegetables and so I am very regular. And when I say that I eat them, I mean I literally ask myself every day if I got my 5 servings in that day. Occasionally the answer is no, but the overwhelming majority of the time the answer is a resounding YES MA'AM! 

So what are some good examples of fiber?

The things that I eat daily that include fiber: Banana, carrots, spinach, whole wheat bread, and most beans. These aren't the only sources of fiber, but I eat all of these almost every day.

Please don't let my story of gas turn you away from eating healthy. Just get to know what your tolerance is. I really did forgot that edamame does that to me. I mean I would have been slightly gassy about the spinach, but it wouldn't necessarily have prompted a blog post. 

It's not a pretty subject, but it is an important one. And look at how much I have grown as an educator. I would never talk about farting in such an open forum before. Aww I'm so proud of me.

Good night, and Happy Gas everyone!

Have a Blessed Evening,

Jennie
xoxo
