I found SP while looking for a nutrition calculator and was amazed and grateful to discover that it's so much more than that.

I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes. I didn't know that nothing is or can be allowed to be more important than health. Not studying. Not chores. Not even family ...

But I am learning that now.

Thank you for the mindful smoothie!

SOTA was the term used by the University to identify non-conventional students of advanced age. The college of education had a strong emphasis on teams in most of the upper-level classes. Inevitably conversation would eventually turn to age. One student was lamenting the fact that she would be 28 years old before she graduated (think very melodramatic tone) to which I quipped I would be 50 when I walked the stage at commencement. Another teammate gasped and told me I was older than her mother (another melodramatic tone).

I relied on a lot of Power Bars those 4-1/2 years. Having one about 30 minutes before an exam seemed to give my brain a boost. Also they were an emergency meal if needed.

Good luck with school. I have a sister-in-law who completed her R.N. in her early 50's.

I noticed a whole pack of you are doing a Beck's reboot, it looks interesting. I am going to tag along and read some posts.

Cheers

That is really funny about your carrots being confiscated! I remember when the restrictions were first happening, my sister's knitting group had a funny joke. They said the reason they wouldn't let you take knitting needles on board is that they were afraid you were going to knit an Afghan.
