    Since I started eating 2 tablespoons of flax seeds and 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, my life has been much better, and my bathroom trips a lot shorter. Like Txbest said, everything works itself out just fine. LOL

    I eat a Fiber One Oats and Chocolate chewy bar every morning. It's 140 calories but it has 9 grams of fiber. I have been eating a fiber bar and drinking a glass of water every day for breakfast for the last 6 months. It works great.

    I found something that works FABULOUSLY!

I take a fiber one yogurt (By Yoplait) it has 50 calories & 5 grams of fiber, and I mix it with flax seed. I usually have 3 tbls with it and ever since I started this I go EVERY single day, without fail. I never, in almost 50 years gone regular, now it's like clockwork.

I'll never stop eating that stuff.

I love flax seed just plain. I know you can buy the ground flax, so you might want to add that to food if you don't like the whole ones. I like just chewing on them. You have to be sure you chew them and not swallow them whole, as they need to be ground.

I have been doing this for 3-4 months so I know it works.

Good Luck

  Ready for TMI... Whenever I eat healthy, I seem to need extra fiber too. I usually pop a few chewables. Why is it when I have a big hamburger, or tacos, or pizza, everything works itself out just fine? Is it the extra grease, because I know those things don't have extra fiber...if any at all!

    Great... I'm doing basically the same, but for some reason I'm totally off track today... perhaps I should simply commit myself!

More :)

Sunday, October 09, 2011

This week I am going to do more minutes of exercise (anything) and stick to cleaner eating. I just have to do this for me.
Also, I need something to read to get my mind working. Any advice on a book or author? I miss going to school and learning and I know I will not be going back until January. It's been about 5 years since I was there.
Thanks for listening to my thoughts emoticon and stuff. Be blessed Sparkfriends

    WooHOO for more fitness minutes!!

Not always the best one to ask regarding books as I'm usually the last to read the latest good book. Case in point, last one is already a movie. The Help was wonderful. Can also second the book Northern Lights as mentioned in another comment.

Happy reading!
Tina

    I love to read books! There is nothing better than looking forward to and sitting down with a good book!
It all depends on what you like to read....really. I enjoyed, Water For Elephants, Northern Lights, Montana Sky,and Dark Harvest, to name a few. I am from Florida, so I also enjoy books involving the ocean and the coastal towns in Florida. A Land Remembered was excellent. Heather Graham writes some good mysteries involving the coastal areas, as does Karen Harper. You might google some of these choices and see if anything grabs your attention. Good Luck with your choice. emoticon
