Tempt My Tummy Tuesday: Sugar Cookies

first batch...perfect!
Fall weather always brings out the baker in me...it helps warm the house and gives me a much needed stress relief activity that produces yumminess, too.  One of my favorites to make is sugar cookies.  Closer to Christmas, I'll pull out my Grandma's roll out sugar cookie recipe, but, for now, I used a delicious drop sugar cookie recipe.
sprinkles added
Drop Sugar Cookies
3 cups sugar
2 cups Crisco
4 eggs
2 rounded tsp. sour cream
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
7 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups milk
Sugar Sprinkles as desired
ready for freezer
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, b. soda, and b. powder in bowl and set aside.  Cream together first 5 ingredients in large mixing bowl (recipe will fit in Kitchen Aid mixing bowl very nicely).  Add flour mixture alternately with milk to creamed mixture.  Drop by cookie scoop on ungreased cookie sheets.  Sprinkle sugar crystals on dough and bake for 10-12 minutes.  Leave plain if you want to use frosting after cooling cookies.  Can be frozen.

choose your easy

More and more I am seeing this thought meme-ing its way through social media...
"I wish it were as easy to lose weight as it is to gain weight." I beg your pardon...

Whoever said it was easy to gain weight?

What part about gaining weight is any easier than losing it?
I gained weight consistently over the course of the first 41 years of my life.
I do not recall those years as easy ones where my weight was concerned.

What is easy about being the heaviest person in your family? Or in your class?
What is easy about having to buy clothes that are labeled as "husky"? Or later on in life, have to shop in a special section of the store for "women's sizes" or even in stores that only carry "women's sizes".
What is that supposed to even mean...women's sizes???
What is easy about feeling as if you have no self control?
What is easy about eating until your pants are too tight before you ever get up from the table?
What is easy about feeling guilty for…

anchored

My word for 2018. 
Anchored.
To keep from drifting.
Representative of stability and strength.
Connected. Held.  Grounded.  Positioned.  Fixed.
Movable.
Small, yet, essential part of a bigger entity.

It is a standard by which to live; a goal for which to strive.
Anchored.



it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
