GiST #4

October 26, 2009
  • I have all the things in my life that I need and most of the things that I want, and have acquired a good solid understanding of the difference.  There is nothing I want at the moment.  (that can be bought.)
  • Good health. I’ve been successful at maintaining momentum with my new eating habits. I feel better already and this is strengthening my resolve.
  • Old friends. A few have come out of the woodwork lately, thanks to the wonders of Facebook. But these are the good kind of old friends. A reunion is in the works.
  • Cookbooks!  I have a new appreciation and excitement around the idea of cooking. When you are trying to eat healthy, it just makes more sense to cook your own food. I’ve been to the library and co-worker has loaned me a few very good books.
  • Fall colours. I prefer spring, only because it leads to summer rather than to snow, but nothing compares to beautiful display put on by trees this time of year. I was out for a walk yesterday, and although I had forgotten my camera, I was able to get a few pictures with my BlackBerry.

    I really enjoy reading yours and Kelly’s lists, Sylvain. I’m so glad that you are sustaining your momentum with your new eating habits—keep it up! You go! I too have “caught the ball” and am “running with it” 🙂 xo, O

    I love love LOVE those cookbooks!

    The other suggestion I’d make is to check out the GI Diet – that’s the diet I’m following/doing these days (with success! yay!) – and perhaps incorporate some of those recipes in, too, for the sake of maintaining a balanced blood sugar level (to feel less hungry!)

    GO YOU! 🙂

    Those pictures are very beautiful. Thank you for sharing them.

    Cooking does rock though. I know that I sure do appreciate it. I like to bake too.
