My new “Toddler Diet” has been successful in making me more fit due to increased physical activity, regular weight-lifting, and healthy eating. My 15-month-old granddaughter visited overnight and most of the day. We had a lovely time reading books, playing with toys, hiding in the pantry, scampering up and down stairs, dancing to music, and sharing exquisite snacks of banana puffs,cheese, apple sauce, and turkey sandwiches topped off with some warm organic milk. Mmmmmmm good. There was no time for my usual staples of chocolate and red wine.A local toy store recently went out of business, so I stocked up enough supplies to pass for a professional child care facility. I estimate that I’ve reduced my waist two inches by picking up those toys one million times. I’m finally getting smarter at this grandmother thing and have stored most of the toys in plastic boxes. (I got the boxes to organize my office, but that’s another issue.)I also lifted the 25-pound darling enough times to know that’s the amount of weight I need to lose so I can continue to scamper up and down stairs. She makes me laugh with her energy and antics, and when she’s drifting off the sleep, she makes me cry. Being a grandma is a huge benefit of being this darned old.
