I often have a "carb attack" when I feel I need some. I know that carbs are good for you but they need to be the right ones and not an over abundance.
For the holidays, my brother, each year, sends us a box of oranges from Florida. They are delicious.
Today, when I was on my way to the kitchen to get something sweet, I saw the oranges, grabbed one and that was my snack!! Isn't that great?
I feel like I satisfied my sweet tooth and didn't go for the sugar. Progress...progress...
Side note.....Dr. Oz mentioned that a tablespoon of peanut butter can curb cravings in 15 mins. I tried this last night and it worked. Just some peanut butter and wait the 15 mins and poof...craving gone. Try it!

Tomorrow is my foot surgery. I'm not really nervous, I just want it over with. Once again my friend Dawn is coming to the rescue to take me to the surgical center and then home again.
I am so annoyed with the center. They called me at 8:30 this morning and went over everything I needed to know for tomorrow. They told me to be there at 10:15. I called Dawn and set the entire thing up.
At about noon they called to remind me to be there at 10:15 and that I had a co-pay and not to forget to bring it.
Around 1, they called me, laughing and said, "Oh, forget about 10:15 we just changed the surgery to 7:30 am. I was furious. I spent time figuring out the day, asking favors of friends and they just think it's funny?
I just wish people would walk a mile in my shoes before they think things are easy for everyone.
Well, wish me luck. Tomorrow I get my foot fixed! Hooray!

I went for my pre-op tests today. Sheesh! You would think I was going to have a heart transplant and not bunion surgery. They had all kinds of tests including blood, urine, EKG etc....
Ok, apparently, I am well enough for them to operate on my little toe. I can't imagine what they would put me through if this were something truly serious!!
On a side note, I received the thumb brace with magnets I ordered. I have heard a lot about magnets helping with arthritis so, I thought I'd try it. I'll keep everyone posted on how it works (or if it works).
