    Neato. I'd keep the walking shoes, too, unless they're all worn out - you may prefer those for the days you just want to walk! :)

Great blog - love that you're getting in so many veggies! :)

Cheers,
Maya

NOW TO DIG SOME DIRTY ON MY HD. I TOLD HIM I WOULD WRITE IN MY BLOG IF HE TEMPTED ME IN ANY WAY. HE SAID HE DID NOT CARE THAT NONE OF YOU KNEW HIM. WELL MY FRIEND ANNETTE KNOWS SOME OF EXPERIENCE WITH MY HD AND HIS COOKIES ETC. HE ALWAYS IS THE ONE WHO BRINGS IN THE JUNK. I AM NOT SURE IF HE IS FEELING INFERIOR BECAUSE I AM TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT AND LOOKING HEALTHIER, AND FEELING BETTER. NO I DID NOT HAVE A COOKIE AND I DID HAVE A CHICKEN WING WHEN IT WAS NOT PLANNED ON MY MEAL FOR THE NIGHT. BECK WOULD SAY YOU CAN EITHER EAT DIFFERENTLY THEN OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS WHO ARE NOT WATCHING THEIR WEIGHT AND REMAIN HEAVY OR YOU CAN SAY NO TO EATING EXTRA FOOD.. WELL I STUMBLED. BUT I WILL TRY HARDER NEXT TIME. I ONLY WENT 40 CALS OVER IN CAL RANGE.

I AM IMAGINING THAT THIS COMPUTER IS MY HD FOR NOT BEING MORE SUPPORTIVE (NOT THAT I WOULD DIE OR ANYTHING I HE DOESN'T AND MOST OF THE TIME HE IS IN THE NEGATIVE--I DON'T NEED HIM TO BOOST ME UP I CAN DO THAT MYSELF WITH THE HELP OF GOD.)
