Falling in love again at 58!


I never thought I would fall in love again at my age.. after all at 58…who does?

Well I did…I am in love again… butterflies in my stomach…my heart so full of love.. it’s overflowing..my life has changed in a blink of an eye… I have purpose now.. I have joy.. I have something exciting to look forward to… I have a new name now too!! It’s Grandma… ! I am a grandma to an incredible little grandson… who is just two weeks old… he had me from hello..when he was just barely a few hours old.. I made the drive from North Carolina to Maryland..I had just left my driveway when we learned of his birth and heard his first cries as he was getting his first diaper …I heard the joy in my sons voice…he was a daddy…as I drove to the hospital. four hours away… I thought a lot about being a grandma.. seeing him…loving him.. wanting to teach him so much about life.. I dream of having the kind of relationship with him as I did with my Grandmother.. I loved her beyond measure.. I loved to be with her on weekends ..school holidays and summer vacations…anytime spent with grandma Swope was special to me.. and it continued into my adulthood..And the closeness we had, was shared with her to great grandson..my sons.. they shared a special bond with her.. as I did…and our bond was a shared my whole lifetime…until she was 90! How lucky was I !

I want that with my grandson.. I want him to know that I will be there for him…always.. I want to tell him the family stories…I want him to learn about his ancestors…I want to teach him things about life.. I want to watch him grow into a wonderful successful man like his father..

I want to teach him recipes that have been handed down from many generations …I want to share my love of the outdoors with him.. I want to teach him to be kind and loving ..at all cost..and to love everyone…never looking down at others unless he is helping them up…I want him to give back to our society and learn to do for others..I want him to learn to be loyal and know what character is…and how to keep it..I want him to learn right from wrong and how to listen to his inter soul to guide him.. I want him to learn a great education will get him further in life..and will open doors that would not be open to him otherwise..

Always tell the truth.. it will keep you out of trouble.. if you find yourself in trouble..fess up and face the consequences..it won’t last for ever…

I want to teach him that all women are beautiful.. Never use them..never hit them.. always treat them kindly..you can have women as friends…every man should have one or two..as friends.. and if they listen they will learn much about them…never date two women at once.. and never break their hearts on purpose..I want him to learn to open doors for them…always walk them to the door..never expect a kiss on the first date..but don’t be afraid if it feels right to ask for one..never talk about a woman in the locker room ..or to others you can’t trust..her reputation should be honored..if you see others degrading a woman ..stick up for her..every chance you get..hopefully others will get the hint..

Be the best friend you can be…honest and truthful… Keep a secret when asked….give good advise…and be there when they need you the most..good friends are hard to find..remember make new friends but keep the old.. one is silver and the other is gold…

Your parents are going to be upset with you at some point..know that they still love you..and always will.. know that you can go to your parents about ANYTHING… never think you are alone..don’t lie to them…NEVER talk back to them…listen to what they are trying to teach you..it’s for your own good.. even if you don’t think so at that moment..I want him to honor his mother and father.. at all cost..seek their advise and take it..I want him to be independent but causious..I want him to fall in Love when he is over 30…and understand that women are equals..he should always protect her.. love her…and honor her..never betraying her trust..for that is hard to earn back.

I want him to have children of his own..and bring them up as him..and teach them the very lessons he has learned..as old as I am now.. I realize I may never see him become the man I dream he will be..at 58…I may be luck to see him through high school let alone college..marriage and children.. but I have many years to help mold him into an upstanding young man…who will make his parents proud … I can help teach him…many things that will carry him through difficult time..

I want him to know that in life there will be disappointments..but its how you handle those disappointments that make your stronger and not a victim of them…I want him to know he can do anything if he puts his mind to it.. there is a whole world out there for the taking ! Go Grab it!!! Look for adventure… travel as much as you can..taking the unbeaten path.. learn about others.. and remember nothing worth having in life ..is free or easy..you must work hard…live a good honest life.. be kind to all…and love yourself..and always remember Grandma Loves You!

I can’t believe 2015 is here! Oh where has the time gone? I will turn 59 in May? Really? 59? OMG! 2014 was an incredible year for me.. became a GRANDMOTHER! My little grandson was born on December 20th! That little man has stolen my heart from the moment I laid eyes on him.. I love him sooo much. He has also saved his grandmothers life… on one swoop….one photo… one moment captured in time for ever… his first Photo of Himself with his Grandma….OMG! I cried….how in the HELL did I get this fat??? How can you even see this beautiful little baby boy among the layers of fat that he is laying on called his grandmother? When did I get this fat??? And why didn’t anyone tell me?
Let me back up a bit… if I was told to describe myself …I would say that I am a fun loving… adventure seeking free spirited person.. I love the ocean ..kayaking… swimming… hiking…meeting people..and want to enjoy life to the fullest…reality is…I am a big fat mess… I haven’t been to the ocean in two years… I couldn’t even begin to fit into a kayak let along ride in one… the only hike I have been on in the last 8 years..has been to the mailbox…or climbing the three steps into my house…adventurous? Really what is that? free spirited ? Really Beverly? Maybe back in 2005? And exercise? What is this again? I have a bike.. a gazzell…and one of the large balls to sit on… I have more weights than my local gym…and a WII that hasn’t been used in over two years… What happened..? I think I quit enjoying things I use to do..and fell out of love with myself.. Let me back up again… in 2005 I met the love of my life.. my soul mate..I was in the best shape I had been in for years…having come off a very one sided marriage that was full of lies and deciete..I had FINALLY found the my soul mate.. the man Who was a part of me.. my love. my heart my world…I had never met anyone like him.. ever… a Sgt Major in The Marine Corps ..a mover and a shaker who taught me more about myself than I had ever known.. He made me believe in my own self and the power that I had inside me..He let me be me..and loved me for it..we were equals…partners in love and life..and we were separated my thousands of miles..he in Germany me in North Carolina.. but we made it work..we learned everything about each other.. we talked for HOURS on the phone..we hated every moment we were apart and the best part of our days was when we were together..he made me whole…we shared things about our hopes and dreams and things about our past…that I had never shared with anyone..little things.. big things… he completed me…he was my “other” half.. we were lovers and best friends..we were inseperatable..and I still feel that way today.. but life and family…appreared its ugly head and we were forced to live stated apart, connected by love..and what was in our hearts..but duty called…and for reason I won’t explain..we have to live separate lives..peeking in on each other..and still promising our love..but apart.. is how it must be. some may not understand and that is ok.. but we shall forever be in each others hearts..I now know life changed so much for me..with him not in it…in the way I wanted.. and I didn’t want anyone else..I still don’t…and I have done a really good job of NO one wanting me..depressed and lonely.. I made up my own little world that I wasn’t going to let anyone else in…. I did it well..it’s easy Now to look back and re think my life and how I got here.. sometimes it’s painful…but I need to understand how I got here… to understand how to get back to my old self..my healthier self.. to have lost the greatest love of my life.. at times is painful..but knowing that I at least had it.. helps… so my grandson has let me fall in love again. something I never thought I would ever do again… I want to get healthy to live longer and to be in my grandson’s live as long as I possibly can… this little boy is saving my life.. he has given me hope… love.. and a reason to move on.. he is helping to heal my heart.. something that no one else has been able to do… I shall be forever a grateful grandma…here is 2015 being my best year yet! In my next post I will share how I am going to do this… until then.. have a great new year!soulmate

Benefits of healthy eating!

I’ve been going strong for  over a month now on my healthy eating

..no diet coke..lots and lots of pure fresh water. And then I cut out fast foods. ..allowing only chai tea from Starbucks ( hey I’m working on it!). .at first it drove me crazy  not to stop and get my sasuage egg and cheese biscuits every morning.   After all the girl at the drive through..had become my friend.  She’s going to think I moved.. Or died! But after going the nutritional analysis of what was in that ..I don’t miss it..oh sure when I passed a Mickey D’s .thoughts of french fries..or a nice ice cream cone..did pop in my head.m but finally. .nothing..not a twinge..not a glace not one thought of stopping..habit broken…
Now the next thing to go was sugar…after educating myself on all  the non benefits of this little sweet product. .and understanding the propaganda behind it in the food industry. .it’s gone.  Obliterated. .I won’t lie and say it hasn’t been without dire consequences. .headaches..fatigue. .cravings..and down right bitchyness on my part. .even shakes and sickness like symptoms. ..after all its like coming off of crack..or drinking. .America we are addicted to this crap!…
Its in everything processed and packaged that they can but it in.. ( more about that in another post)

Anyway my point of this whole post is…results. unexpected ones at that!..oh I knew making tgese changes would be better for me..even facilitate weight loss.  But what I didn’t realize. Was how great I would Feel!..
Slowly over the course of the month..I noticed a slight change..aftee thw headaches..and withdraws subsidied..here and there things..like I’m not so bloated..my skin feel softer. .I feel like my face is thinner..I walk with a skip in my stride. .and slowly…I got my ENERGY back.  Some oeoole just think when were heavy were lazy..but the truth I have come to realize is …we don’t have the energy to move it!  Truly…it takes everything we have to get up each day andnjust do the minimum we have to do…period..aftee a while it’s. .just the way it is.. you forget what having energy is all about..and someway..somehow. .you don’t remember ever having it..just washing the dishes..or vacuuming the floor is about all you can do…you just get by..never once realizing why you feel so bad..never really taking the time to think..it could be my unhealthy eating and ways..all of which are habits..
Well last night was a turning point for me..I had to stop.and really think about the past 40 YEARS of my life..and realize. ..Dam…this is how I use to feel…energized! Over the past month I had WORKED hard at getting healthy..Really HARD..going through withdrawal. .sleeping..and sleeping..but wait. ..I noticed I was getting up before the alarm..and I was well rested..I woke up ready for the day! Happy..smiling…hey who is this girl?..it’s me…happy with life..feeling good…and wait…I noticed I was doing more..noticing more that needed to be done. ..picking things up off the floor ( If your over weight you will understand that). .I wasn’t just plopping down on the couch after work..I was moving..cleaning..doing chores I hadn’t been doing..and enjoying it too!
After work it was like I still had all this energy built up inside of me..roaring to go! Where did this come from? ? I hadn’t had a sugar high.. o r even a energy drink.. what the hells going on?
Then it hit me.. this is what it’s suppose to feel like..I remember how I could work all day..run the boys around..come home fix dinner..do homework..and laundry
.and go to bed at.midnight and do it all over again tomorrow!
I am so frikin EXCITED!  I GOT me BACK!!! IN A MONTH NO LESS!!
WOW…After realizing this..I managed to clean the  living room bathroom..and kitchen before I went to bed.. (started at 9pm)..I was up early. .washing clothes..mopping the floors and walked the dogs.. .all before work!
I am so happy to be reaping the rewards from all of my hard work getting healthy. .reward I had not even thought of!..eating healthy has so many benefits for our health..our hearts and now O realize our happiness!
Don’t spend one more day feeling sick and tired..stop the madness..stop eating the garage that is being put in our food. ..educate yourself on the recent studies on obesity and our food system..know what the labels mean..know the garbage that is being forced into our food system..and help stop it now!. ..I still have a long jouney ahead..but believe you me.. my EYES ARE WIDE OPEN! I like how.I’m feeling..the happiness. .the joy..the energy! And to think ..this is Just the beginning!

Educate yourself to a healthier you!

healthy breakfast
VS
sasuage egg and cheese

As I am traveling on my healthy journey I am trying to educate myself on the why’s and how’s of nutrition..recently I have started to track different area’s of nutrition…not only calories..but carbs,fat,Protein, Sodium and sugar’s…
In doing this I have started to made some comparison’s to what my life was like before in the matters of what I ate daily…I am trying to not only get healthy , but to understand the how and why’s so I do not do it all over again. I think the more I can understand about food and what it does to our bodies..the more we are able to make educated decisions that will benefit our bodies.
Today is my first of what I am sure to be..many comparison’s… I must say I am shocked at the results…it’s no wonder I am fat…in my mind …I was thinking..that One sasuage egg and cheese biscuit..would be better for me than say…donuts from Dunkin doughnuts.. or some type of pastry…but in reality it was worse!

Here is my first Comparison’s….

Item Calories Carbs Fat Protein Sodium Sugar
Hardee’s Sausage, Egg & Cheese 630 37 45 18 1520 4
Glazed Donut 260 31 14 3 330 12
______________________________________________________________________________________
Healthy Meal
2 eggs 120 1 9 12 124 0
2 ww toast 140 13 1 3 125 2
peach fresh 33 8 0 1 0 8
______________________________________________________________________________________
TOTAL 293 22 10 16 249 10

I was shocked that I was eating 630 calories for breakfast! 31 carbs and 1520 of sodium! And this was every week Monday through Friday on my way to work! OMG! And if someone brought donuts..I would eat one or two of those! UGH!

I no longer go through the drive through window at fast food joints..nor do I eat in my car.. I plan my meals..down to the last morsel…some might think this is too rigid for them.. but let me ask you this.. How are you doing with eating on the run? Would you be reading this if it was working for you?? Maybe being rigid is a good thing…and it could help.. I know one day it will all be second nature for me to eat healthy.. but right now I need a plan..and figuring out the nutritional value of what is being put into my body…is my priority these days! I urge you to do the same.. educate yourself..knowledge can be a wonderful tool for you to win your battle with food..we can’t eliminate food completly..so I need to learn to live with it..the best way I can..so that I can have a healthy body..yes, I am just beginning to learn about nutrition…but each day I make my numbers in my food diary on MY FITNESS PAL..IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD!
Give this a try…and get MYFITNESS PAL and start tracking your numbers…it will benefit you…and you will be on the right path to a healthier you! I wish you the best…

Addiction

Food-AddictI can’t imagine what its like to be a drug addict..to want a high so badly you will go through thousands of dollars just to get a high..I don’t like to take over the counter drugs unless necessary…let alone the hard stuff..when I had my knee operation..I didn’t like taking the pain medicine..because of the way it makes me feel..I would rather have the pain…how can you like how that makes you feel? And not knowing if the next high is going to kill you… or not..a chance I am not willing to take…why take something that isn’t going to let you remember what the heck you did the night before? I just can’t wrap my head around this…

I can’t imagine what it’s like to NEED a drink everyday… I have beer and wine in my frig that had been there over a year now..I know for some, that it would of been gone the next day….everyday they stop and grab that 12 pack on the way home…and finish it off..before bedtime…Don’t get me wrong.. I enjoy a nice glass of wine..but the rest of the bottle goes to waste…I may have a white Russian if I am out for dinner..but one is enough.. I’ve never been drunk…NEVER… Two glasses of wine and I know I don’t like how it make me feel.. I like having complete control…I don’t like how alcohol makes me feel.. I can’t understand why people can’t see that they can’t drive after have too much? If you fumble while getting the keys in the ignition.. don’t drive.. it’s a no brainer.. how do you like laying by the toilet and puking your guts out? Yet, You still enjoy doing it all over again..tomorrow.. Not me…lives and familes are ruined by alcohol…why do it?

I enjoy sex.. but I can’t imagine being addicted to it and giving up my body to anyone that I meet….or being addicted to looking at it…people meet in the back alley and arrange sex…with a stranger and then go home to their partner..and do it again.. I’d be afraid some creep would kill me.. or that I would end up with a STD..or even AIDS..isn’t this degrading to you? How can you be addicted to this? How does it even begin?

And don’t get me started on cigarettes…I’ve kissed a man who smoked and it tasted awful! I have lived with a smoker and seen his yellow teeth and smelled the smoke on his clothing.. I hated it.. how can you want to stick a cig in your mouth and do all that harm to your lungs! We have all seen the pictures of the smokers lungs…black with tar like substance …and the cancer.. they spend millions of dollars on campaigns to keep young kids to stop..and yet.. its a multi dollar business… no matter what anyone says.. it’s not cool to smoke..not to mention the cost of a carton of those things! How do you like spending all of your hard earned money like that??? Up in smoke!
No I can’t understand how a person gets addicted to smoking.. drinking.. drugs..and sex…..those things don’t interest me…however….
I do under stand being addicted to food.. I understand how it make me feel better after a long day at work.. I understand that no matter how bad my day goes..that I can turn to the freezer and reach for the half gallon of ice cream… and eat myself happy…
I get great pleasure out of eating.. it comforts my soul.. it can make a bad day better.. a fight..tolerable..it can heal my broken heart.. and make me feel better inside..I use food like a druggie uses a needle.. it make me feel better.. and it’s not illegal.. No one cares if I stuff myself and weigh 300 pounds.. no one says a word…

In fact many family and friends of mine are are enablers … my hook up..my pimp…my dealer…see they make things to eat that I like and they even encourage me to eat me.. oh I am not blaming them.. I am just telling you they are enablers..and they don’t even know it..

If I was a alcoholic..would you ask me over to your house and offer me a drink? Or if I was a addicted to drugs..would you ask me over and have some on a silver platter for me?
If you saw me destroying myself with alcohol and drugs.. you would intervene? Why of course you would..
then why don’t you do that for me..? The food addict? Why not encourage me to seek help for my addiction???
Why not talk to me as my weight rises..and not ignore it?
Do you think I enjoy being fat? DO you think I just eat to much so I am getting fat? Do you even care?
It’s a disease that is not spoken about..after all you don’t want to hurt my feelings, right?

I have often said that I wish I wouldn’t have taken up the food addiction vise.. why? Cause I can get no help..if I was addicted to just about anything else..my insurance would pay for me to get help.. and certainly my family would seek that help for me.. out of sight out of mind..with alcohol..drugs.and tabacco…
but not with food addiction.. I still have to eat.. and to someone that LOVES food and is addicted to it.. there is no half ass way to do it.. all of nothing..yes , I eat all…everything.. and then afterwards I feel guilt..shame.. and despair.. which in turns makes me want to eat more to make me feel better..its a vicious circle..one that is difficult to break..but I am trying..
I started attending OA, Overeaters Anonymous …I attend the phone meetings.. it helps me be more aware..of what I am eating.. and allows me to be accountable..this helps me..my family still doesn’t get it.. nor my friends.. and I understand that. it’s really ok..I need to get through this..breakthrough my addiction myself..and with GOD.. at my side..
I hope that one day people who have a food addiction will have a place to get help..a outreach program..even a in house program to learn how to eat again.. I am going to beat this food addiction.. even if I feel that it is the hardest addiction on earth to kick.. after all I can drive down one block and find a fast food joint..just waiting to help me get my food fix! Hell they even have Dollar menu …that I can always afford something to fill my need…I get to walk the isle at Walmart and find just about any food that I want to get my fix..and if I am lucky..they are giving out samples… and being the kind person that I am.. sometimes they will give me seconds! Every second of every day food is on my mind.. every where I look..on TV on Bill boards..in Magazines.. I can find food porn.. and something new that could help me stay in this addiction!
But I want out… I have to get out.. I need to get out..I want out! So step by step. I will fight back.. I am stepping up and taking responsibility for my choices…I am eliminating many unhealthy things.. I started with Diet Coke.. I use to drink 6=8 a day.. I have been diet coke free for three weeks now.. and I feel better already.. my heartburn at night has stopped.. and I thirst for water now.. the colder the better! Now I have eliminated fast foods..I don’t go.. I can’t go.. I don’t have control..it’s not good for me.. so I am removing it from my life…period..next will be packaged food…all packaged foods..then white flour…baby steps..tomorrow is my first face to face OA meeting .. and I am scared shitless! But I am going… I am not sure what to expect…but I am looking forward to this very much.. the phone meetings are great..but this will be even better! wish me luck.. .and to those who are suffering with food addiction.. please reach out to someone.. a friend. pastor ..doctor…ask for help… and find OA ..go to the internet and find the phone numbers and conference call code to participate..it does help..
Cheers!
