Welcome my friends. I’m tweaking my weekly journey with my healthier living. It’s a step in the right direction for sure. I hope you come along for the ride. Instead of day-to-day comments, I’m going to post something from my personal journal to share. Hope you enjoy. Remember all of us go down this path and we are all in it together ❤

“Dear Journal – We’ve had stumbling blocks lately. I admit that I got a little frustrated… okay maybe a lot frustrated. Before my surgery, I was in a great mind spot in working out and exercising. Being down for three months without being able to do much, I lost my mojo. Then work has been so loving in sharing multiple colds/viruses the past month. I get over one thing and then BOOM I get the next cold. My immune system is so challenged that someone with a cold can just look at me with a stink eye and I get sick. It sucks but the challenge is real. So Monday, I start again for the gazillionth time. It’s not how many times you start… it’s that one time that you finish. So back to baby steps and one day and one meal at a time”
Today, March 5, is National Cheese Doodle Day. This is totally awesome. Everyone likes cheese doodles – from humans to animals. They are made with cornmeal that has been puffed, baked and coated with a wonderful cheddar cheese. Some even have white cheese these days. Do you know who invented the cheese doodle? It was Morrie Yahai in the 1940’s. After serving as a Marine in World War II, he returned to his home in the Bronx and took over the family business – a snack food company called Old London Foods.
During the 1960’s, the Wise Foods Inc acquired the company and here you go – they are now part of the potato chip division of snacks. And did you know that in the Wise Foods, cheese doodles are one of the strongest brands and they produce over 15 million pounds of cheese doodles every year!
Even the pig enjoys his cheese doodles. Do you want to see? Okay – here you go. Enjoy this fine video that Bacon’s mom made back in the day. Roll tape –
