I’ve got so much to say today, that I don’t know where to start. I have a chance to help people with both health and weight issues, but due to liability reasons I am not allowed to discuss the BTD while at work. Previously being employed in the management field, I can understand the politics of this dilemma. I also realize that one must first work within the rules in order to change them. Now after having stated how I understand the multiple angles of the situation, let me say this: it’s a shame.
Still, if you want change without bloodshed, then patience and compliance are the keys to change. (Ironic, isn’t it?) Better yet, maybe the increased networking will one day allow me to help people “on the side” and after hours. The possibilities give me hope.
Switching gears now.....
Both kids loved breakfast today. I can’t get over how much satisfaction I get knowing that they love the taste AND it’s good for them. The A’s ate Scottish Oatmeal with dried cranberries, brown sugar, currants and rice milk. (Very yummy.) My five year old O ate his ground beef sausage patty, seasoned with homemade pizza sauce and a little more salt. He actually said that his sausage was “perfect.” I think he realizes how hard I am trying and remembers to appreciate it every once in awhile!
Since today is a very busy day, I made a double batch of mixed roots soup and rice. It will be the A’s dinner, along with some leftover spinach. Dad is helping fix the O’s supper tonight, so I will stress the “beneficials” at the table and leave the rest alone.
Hmmmm, change without bloodshed.
Food for thought.
