    Now I've probably eaten too much magnesium. emoticon emoticon
    Thanks for the chocolate!

    Day 2! I've probably come back down to earth, or closer anyway. At dinner I didn't weigh every ingredient. How was your day?

    ........ and if you HAD eaten your brussels sprouts I wouldn't be all' "Yeah, but you didn't eat your magnesium." (I thought the magnesium was IN the brussels sprouts. You know ... the taste)

    What sprint?!! I was just waiting patient to log in and about to say HI to EMMACORY when THERESAMARIEM slipped past ME!

    How was your day 1? SparkPeople thinks I ate to much Fiber and not enough Fat ... and Magnesium apparently I didn't eat my all my magnesium. Hey! I ate my brussels sprouts, what more do they want?!

    Thanks for the personal trainer too. No worries though. This new trainer has no sense of humor.

    PS -- my current profile pic is of my last personal trainer.
