Back on Track

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

The day off was good for me; just like a weekend is good off work, and then you are glad to get back, refreshed. I still have not reached my goal of limiting my calories to 700 before dinner, but I will keep trying. There is no way I can eat less than 1000 calories at dinner, so if I can do this, 1700 would be okay for the day, because my usual caloric intake is about 2400.

    It sounds like you're doing a great job of budgeting your calories and saving for the evening meal. Good job on thinking ahead!

All it took was asking!!!

Monday, July 04, 2011

Well, after I posted the Still in the Dark blog, I figured out how to get to my team member's blogs easily. It is just so odd. I mean, I did it without thinking, it was like by asking the question, the answer just came to me.

This has happened to me with other computer difficulties I have had. I post something to the help line, but by posting I figure it out.

Still in the dark

Monday, July 04, 2011

I feel like I am getting to know Spark fairly well, but I am still in the dark as how to quickly read a blog posted by one of my team members. I see the button for "Browse New Blog Posts from other members" but that gives me the entire span of Spark which is just so huge.

    Carolee, When you are on your Team Page, look at the far right side and you will see TEAM STREAM. Click on the Filter Stream box and change it from Show ALL to Blogs Only. Click GO.

Only Blogs from your team members will scroll by. You can click any one of them to read them. Do this on each team you are part of and read your team members blogs, one by one.

If there is someone whose Blog you always like, look under the box where you add a comment and click the little square that says Subscribe to this blog. You'll get an email each time that person posts a new blog.

Hope this helps.

Breaking the rules

Sunday, July 03, 2011

I know it is a rule of Spark, and a good one, not to copy and paste, but you have to read this article. If you google "Scary Food Science" for the rest of the article. I have cut and pasted the first paragraphs.

"Show me a chicken nugget and I will show you the world. The world, that is, of highly palatable foods engineered by the food industry to go down easily — in some cases, to quite literally “melt in the mouth” — while also stimulating us to crave more.

Commercial foods like chicken nuggets, French fries, chips, crackers, cookies and pastries are designed to be virtually irresistible. And, for a lot of reasons most of us don’t fully understand, they are."

    Fortunately - chicken nuggets are not one of my problems - although I have many others! emoticon vista

    Thank you for this! I've been trying to get my DD to STOP buying Ramen Noodles and McNuggets for my obese GS. Maybe there will be something in that article to convince her!

    The food industry supports governments around the world.. If the politicans don't leave them alone they pull the funds plugs on individual politicians at voting time.. Govenments know all this crap and the human price but don't do anything... Friends in high places covering each others backsides..
