Crazy, Not Crazy

July 26, 2016

So I did a lot of reading last night about hormones, women and turning 50. Maybe I’m not really crazy, I just act crazy every few days, and I need to be okay with that. Hopefully Mike will be okay with that too. So far, he hasn’t left me (or asked me to leave). Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Yesterday the temperature outside was practically normal, so my friend Becky and I got in a good walk, and it had been a while. It felt good to get some fresh air and get a walk in outside.

I found these recently at Whole Foods and I really like them! They have several flavors and they all seem to be Whole30 compliant. These made for an easy dinner last night on the grill.

This flavor – 1 Link = 2 SmartPoints. 2 Links = 5 SmartPoints.


Keeping it short today. I’m out the door to meet a friend for coffee. Have a great day!

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 8 SP

Chunky Hash with Zucchini, Bell Peppers, Red Onion, Sweet Potato, Pork Sausage Crumbles topped with Avocado Rings (I have no idea why the rings), an Egg and Banana Slices

    I love a Brat!! I think 3 SP is pretty good for a brat. Mustard…some potatoes on the side. Yummmm.

    I love what you wrote! It is so true. Thank you for your continued support Nancy. You’re the best!

  2. We have a brat called Al Fresco that I think is good but it’s 3 SP.
    In the Cincinnati area brats are a big thing and you can’t go to a picnic that doesn’t have them. I love those greasy brats. We do have a Whole Foods market over in Cincinnati and I’ll have to try yours.
    I’ve been thinking about this crazy issue and something I heard a long time ago came to mind.
    (I typed this once and lost it and I’m probably don’t remember it right but here it goes.) No woman should feel bad about going through menopause! It’s a gift to be able to carry, bring a life into this world.
    Such a gift does come with burdens but the blessings out weigh them.
    I know I may not of repeated it in the manner she said it but it’s something to think about.
