Not only do I have laryngitis, but my mouth feels as if i had burnt it. It is painful to eat. So, I looked it up on the internet and it is a bona fide syndrome. Take a guess which group of people is most affected: middle aged women. How about that? Anyone else ever have it? I had it once before, and it makes eating a very bad experience. I would rather be fat than not be able to eat. Horrible.

Could not do much Spark, was on a trip to Apple Hill, a lovely region near Placerville, California. Full of farms with pumpkins and apples, beautiful roads through Normal Rockwell painting type countryside.
I was getting sick before the trip, but I just ignored it, now I am really sick. Lost my voice, food tastes awful, and I am coughing all night. Well, I probably would have gotten sick anyway if I had babied myself.
I just decided I was going to ignore being sick, and see how that worked. I told everyone I was fine and continued to do things that had already been planned. People don't really notice, you know, it is interesting. My mother is such a complainer, I wanted to try a new approach. Just ignore not feeling well. OH well.................

Lately, I keep forgetting things, and doing stupid things. Like I was at Costco, and wildly bought a bunch of stuff I should not have. Then, I had to wait in long lines to return a huge frying pan that would never have fit on my stove, and two jackets I did not need at all. I also bought some calcium gummy bears because according to Spark I am not getting enough calcium and vitamin D. So, this morning, I was entering the nutritional info into the place "enter a food not listed" where you put the calories, vitamins, etc. I discovered that they are intended for 2-4 year olds!!! So, the percentage of calcium has to be very different than what would be needed for someone like me. I really feel like I am losing my mind, what there is of it!!!

Was overnight at my daughter's house and missed doing the blog. Her husband was away for a few days, and we had a nice intimate time together; she is pregnant with baby #2, a girl, and she has a year and a half year old son. It just seems a shame that things are so much harder for young people now than they were for us at the same age. Her husband has no job, the house they bought was just exhorbitantly priced for such a junky place, and she gets no help from his side of the family.
I ate a ridiculous amount of food yesterday, being off the grid so to speak. Also, am still hobbling around, and cannot do my walks, although I could do upper body exercises, but have lost my motivation for it.

It would be helpful if all the food tracker items were standardized. For example, I have gotten into the habit of weighing things in grams. Many of the spark foods come in this unit. But today, I wanted to measure grapes, and there were only 2 units, individual grape, and cup. Well, a cup of big grapes would weigh differently than a cup of small grapes, and I don't understand why they did not have grams for this one. It seems like they should have ounces, grams, individual item, and cups. All the units, and people choose which unit to always use to measure that fits best with their lifestyle.
Spark has really bent over backwards to make tracking pretty easy, and this one addition would help even more. Where can I make this suggestion????
