Home again

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Home again and back with the program. I gained 3 pounds being on vacation :( and am at the highest weight I've been in 4+ years. Time to get serious again, right?

    Yep! :)

Go on - it's 4 pounds. Drink plenty of water and get in those veggies ... those pounds will melt right off!

Cheers,
Maya

It took 5 hours to get to the border and cross. It feels good to be back again - we're half way there. Another 8 hour drive tomorrow and we'll be home.

Hot and humid

Monday, October 19, 2009

Today was unusually hot and humid here in San Carlos. Even in he shade I was dripping - not like me at all. There was no breeze and the heat got a little too much for me, we retreated inside. Also lots of mozzies around, my legs are very spotty...

    How were the margaritas, is all I want to know. But I think you said that's NOT your favourite drink!

Well, hope you had a fantastic time anyway!

Big breakfast

Sunday, October 18, 2009

I find that when I eat a big breakfast - scrambled eggs, hash browns - I feel full until lunchtime and don't snack in between. Overall this seems to work well for me. I don't like eating a big dinner and normally lunch is my largest meal of the day but being on a trip it seems breakfast is the largest meal. Maybe I should try that when I get back home???

    Big breakfast is GREAT, I agree with you. But making the time to do that is not always easy, huh?

I seem to have moved to big brekkie, big lunch AND big dinner, too! :) Not that great for me, but I'm enjoying it!

Cheers,
Maya

  In the US most people eat a big dinner, a moderate lunch, and light or no breakfast.

I noticed when I visited Scandinavia that their mid-day meal was the largest meal of the day while the morning and evening meals were lighter.

Then there is the "farmer's breakfast" where people who have to work hard all day eat a huge breakfast to give them the energy to get through the day.

They say that eating the main meal in the middle of the day is healthier and eating it in the morning is the best.

I've had mixed luck with this. Sometimes I eat a big breakfast and am able to eat light lunch and dinner but other days eating a big breakfast makes me want to eat even more for lunch and dinner. Probably this is just what I'm used to though since my whole life dinner was my main meal.
