Sorry, I'm not on your page as much as I would like to be, but girl, I am keeping my 29 month old grand daughter and I good to get up at 5:50 three days a week to go walk 5/5.5 miles before she comes and strength train for 50-60 minutes two days a week after she leaves and then on Saturday...whew! After that, I want to eat supper, get a shower and go to bed.

Anyway, have a great week and keep doing your best each day.

Thanks for commenting on my fitness blog. Reporting a 50% increase today. I can now do THREE bench presses with that bar. Monday I go for FOUR. Ever upward! Bit by bit.
I always do yoga by video. I've never found a class that goes at my speed. The way they jump around from one pose to another, DH calls them yoga gymnasts.

Okay to answer your questions -- Fitbook or not? Either way. I've done both a plain ol notebook and then the Fitbook. Thing I love about the Fitbook is it keeps me focused. I love them. I did a blog awhile back about it: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j
ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=5773408
I love that I can track my sleep (a very big deal for me), my freggies, water I drink, exercsie I do. It provides a place for both long term and weekly/short term goals. But nothing you couldn't do with a regular notebook, too. In the States they sell them at Target and I believe they do up there, too (I might be wrong though) but they're on Amazon. They're about $20 but they're a 12 week book so pricey? A tad, but for me it is worth the money.

I am tracking my hunger as well. I am trying to let my hunger versus the clock drive when and why I eat then focusing on the satiety signals in each meal. I am also working to keep up on my protein because it helps me with overall satiety during the day (I get HANGRY if I don't get in enough protein emoticon ).

I hope that answers your questions! Let me know if you have any more!

What did you think about his book? Worth the $$? I checked to see if my library has it but nope. I agree, there was some stuff I was a little lukewarm on what he had to say. The snack thing... hmmm... if I am hungry, I will eat. Ya know?
