Respect your elders...

So as not to seem ungrateful, I must tell you that I think it is very romantical that my husband likes to buy me my favorite treats when he goes to the store. Nothing says "I love you" like a king size snickers bar being thrown into your lap whenever you stop for gas. ROMAN-TI-CAL!

It's just that I really, really want to start taking better care of myself. I want to make Dr Oz proud (have you seen his new show yet? I haven't, but I bet it's good). I'm going to work to protect my health if it kills me gosh dang it. IF IT KILLS ME (okay so that's an odd statement, but you know what I mean).

And as if to confirm that I'm on the right path, while I was shopping for healthy snack alternatives yesterday (gotta set myself up for success), I met a lovely, vibrant, dare I say spunky woman perusing the tortilla isle. She told me that she used to make her own tortillas but now that's she's older it's too much work. "I'm ninety years old already you know." She smiled. Did my jaw drop? I think it did.

She then selected a package of whole grain tortillas...
And so did I.

Wow, that's great! I hope I'm a spunky 90 year old someday!

I would have followed her around the store and added everything to my cart that she put in hers.

Way to go on the whole grain. I'm working toward that also... a step at a time.

ive bought whole grain so many times, but they go bad before i eat them. healthy seems to be the theme lately, i need to get on the bandwagon.
