A New Year Resolution for 2016 – Maintaining Good Nutrition

Wishing Everyone a Happy New Year 2016.  So many of us talk about making  New Year Resolutions, about diet and the foods we eat, striving for good nutrition and for some weight loss.  There are many years in which I  have also started out the new year looking to change my diet and “lose weight”.  Well this year is no exception for me!

Over the past few weeks as we’ve drawn closer to the new year approaching,  this has become a pressing thought.  I’m wanting to make some changes to my diet, and wanting to lose  weight, the weight which I had gradually gained over a number of years.  Sound familiar?

This year, rather than  making a resolution, I am setting an intention.

My intention! I am drinking 8+1 = 9 glasses of water each day, I am eating more vegetables (especially leafy greens), snacking on 2 crunchy vegetables each day, and measuring the portions I am eating.  A nutritionist once shared with me that the size of a portion is equal to the size of my fist.  The visual is helpful whether dining in or dining out.  I intend on losing 10 pounds  by February 5,  2016,

Here for you, if you are interested,  is a link  to some Tips on Maintaining Good Nutrition from the National MS Society and  there’s more, 5 Tips on fighting fatigue with a good diet as well…

Again, a Happy New Year to you and yours,


Winter is Approaching at The Hacienda

Winter is approaching.  Must be.  Earlier today I was told by Norman Horowitz that he saw snowflakes in the air.   He said they weren’t amounting to anything on the ground.

Considering the warm weather we’ve been having up until now, this is certainly an indication the temperature is dropping as we are officially approaching winter here in the northeast.  He’s mentioned wanting his hats for awhile now.   Every so often there has been a bit of a reminder winter will arrive.

We did a lot of de-cluttering during the summer.  Six months later we weren’t sure if his hats were stored in a draw or closest, and since it had been summer when we were tackling that project, whether they made it to a clothing bin in the basement.

So this evening we dived into the search.  Low and behold we found his hats, 2 out of 3 in any case, and while we were searching, the basement received some of our attention and another round of re-organization.

We shall continue our search for the one lone hat.  Could it be on a hanger attached to a winter coat picked up from Ardsley Cleaners?

Two out of three ain’t bad! Keeping the kepele (head) and aoyern (ears) warm!! *wink*

Here is a photo of meyn man (my husband), happy he has his hat and of course his televizye vayt (TV remote)  🙂 20151219_190204_RR_Hat_NPH
