I made two different recipes. For 2 cups of flour, one recipe had 4 Tablespoons of butter and a half teaspoon of salt. I made this one yesterday. They were good, but I was able to stop eating at one waffle.
The next day, I made a different recipe, and for the same amount of flour, it had 8 whopping Tablespoons of butter and a whole teaspoon of salt. A little voice told me I should not use this recipe, it was from Cooks.com, and I have been burned on recipes from there before.
Well, the high fat, high salt waffles were just scrumptious, I could not stop eating them. The addictive power of salt and butter is just amazing. That is obviously why food manufacturers overdo it. And this is why a person should make all their own food, but besides be careful with recipes. I should look up Spark's recipe now. But will it taste good?

Have been away from Spark for a few days, helping my daughter with her five week old infant and two year old son. Absolutely fantastic. I know how this time of life goes by so quickly, and how children change so fast, so I am very glad to disrupt my activities to help her out.
But it is hard to go back to tracking and exercising.

Yesterday, I had a day out with an old friend--lunch, a matinee at a fantastic theater, and dinner.
Well, the item I had for lunch, delicious, but too salty. Italian cafe.
And the item I had for dinner, way, way too salty. Could only eat half of it. French restaurant, dinner with wine, we split dessert, salad and entree and tip, was $51 each. I don't know, that just seems like too too much to spend on salt.
Sadly, this is one of our favorite French restaurants. And I never minded the expense before because the food was so fantastic and it was a special treat.

I am getting married in May, and we were thinking of taking a cruise to Alaska for a special trip, as a honeymoon. I would like to know other people's experiences on cruises, and suggestions for websites. Here are my pros and cons:
Pro: it is the only way to see Alaska
Con: I don't like boats, I don't like feeling trapped on a boat, I don't like the up and down of boats!!! Also, I envision a cruise as possibly being trapped with poor food, a tiny cabin, and irritating people.
I wonder if I could overcome all of this?

Wow, its Friday, already. (see Monday blog) I have been wracking (racking??) my brain trying to figure out one lifestyle change that would drop weight without having to count calories, even though I actually have fun with the tracker and I also use it to make sure I am getting enough calcium.
Ate strangely yesterday; went to a movie, and basically had popcorn and coke for dinner!!! I never ever drink any soft drinks, so I certainly feel okay about that part of it. I probably have not had a coke in two months.
I think if a person just stopped eating in restaurants altogether, he or she would lose weight and save money at the same time. That would be a huge lifestyle change. A hard one.
