Other Information:
On November 1, 2017 I was chosen to participate in a 14 week study with the Salk Institute. Study being conducted by Dr. Satchin Panda

**Time Restricted Eating. Consuming food within a 12 hour period, in conjunction to our Circadian Clock. I shoot between 9-10hrs. I consume my food from 9a-6:30p. I don't count Calories, I try to eat more intuitively. Not having Processed Foods, Dairy, and Sugar makes identifying real hunger queues much easier! *My Experience!

    Alofa, you are an Invincible Indigo, and I am a Scarlet Dragon! I just saw the team icon on your page! That is a great team. I'm going to ask our leaders if we can throw snowballs at your team or something! We did that with the Emeralds once, and we've done it with the Phoenix team, too.

    I found a garden gnome on my page. Who left that there? LOL! I've sent him on to a bunch of people!

    Keep dodging those treats. They are too sweet and once we start, OMG, bad news! I plan to have a small helping of my sister's dessert at dinner, but otherwise I'll be dodging the sugar. So long as I'm "in the zone" it is easy to pass up the sweets, but once I start eating sugar and flour the carb-fest will begin. Nope. Not this year!

    Hi Alofa,

    I hope your week is going well! Mine has been exhausting, but it's just that time of year. Soon school will be done, and I can rest! I have no patience for parties or gatherings of any kind! I just want to curl up with a book, get some exercise, and sleep a lot!

    Have a great Thursday, and keep it up! You're doing great!
