Friday Fun for Forty & Further

Oh, I almost forgot to post the Friday Follow!  Thanks Mimi for the reminder.

A quick note to update more on my Hot 100 challenge - Hubby said today maybe he'd have to start losing weight. I was showing him how loose my wedding set is getting (not as loose as my birthday suit) and it made an impression on him.

Also, I did well last week on being in bed by 10. One night we stayed up late for a special occasion, but the rest I've done well on. So I'm drinking tons of water and getting lots of sleep, washing my hands a lot but still ended up sick. Bah. I need more fruit for sure. I let myself get frustrated because I can't digest the citrus well and that limits me, but that doesn't mean I can eat a boatload of bananas, pears, apples, and other fun fruits. Maybe it's time to try pomegranates and mangoes. Something else? What do you guys think?


  1. I just saw pomegranate seeds in my grocery store! I did not realize you could buy it that way.

  2. I really need to get to bed earlier.

    As for fruit, what about pineapple, peaches, watermelon,kiwi nectarines, plums, grapes, berries and guava?

  3. How about frozen no-sugar-added berries? Add to smoothies, cereal, or cook down a little and use as a healthy pancake topping.

    My Kid loves dried mango, dried blackberries and dried blueberries, plus he also eats lots of pears, apples and bananas. Other than that, nothing. Still, it's a good variety.

    I can't have much citrus either, especially pineapple (tears up my mouth). I get my vitamin C from strawberries (that frozen berry combo) and red bell peppers. Yum!

  4. I agree with Vee about frozen berries..great superfood and *awesome* in smoothies.

    I need to really work on my sleep. You're inspiring me to work on getting to bed earlier!

    Got enough between yesterday and today to last a week after being in ER with a virus..blech!!!

  5. I'm a new follower. Would love for you to check out my blog and follow back!!!

  6. I think fruit is my happy food and I don't get why it's hard for you. Sweet juicy. Yummy stuff! I hate mangos. I like pomegranates, but they are a little work to get the fruit out. I can eat my weight in grapes and apples. Mmmm....dang it. I forgot my snack. Crap.

  7. Dr - I know it *shouldn't* be hard for me, but after 40 years it's a new habit to even buy a lot of fruit and gauge how much we can eat before it goes all icky. I wasn't brought up with a lot of fruit and so I don't think of it all the time. Some of it I really enjoy, but not as much as chocolate of course. I'm getting there, it's just not as good as I'd like it to be just yet :) Do people REALLY eat 5 servings daily?
