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!

Cheers,

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.

Status on facebook is not updating

Saturday, October 17, 2009

For the last couple of days when I change my status it doesn't link to facebook (I'm signed in!) and I don't get my point either! Sometimes it does link but I don't the point for it...really strange.

  


60000 sparkpoints

Friday, October 16, 2009

Yesterday I went over the 60000 mark and I was disappointed that there is no next "goal" to strive for. After getting low points on the wheel for a while today (now I've reached that last trophee) I got 20... go figure. Don't get me wrong I'll take it and I'll enjoy earning more points but it would have been nice to have a goal to strive for.

  I'm in my 2nd year and am almost half way to 60,000.

I do feel a bit silly that the first few months I didn't really do much except record my food; I skipped a lot of months back then but I discovered that you can go back and earn some of the points by doing reports or filling in goals.

I'm hoping that by the time I get my 60,000 trophy that they will have one for 100,000 for me to strive for.

We had a lovely day at the beach yesterday and I actually managed to finish my book. Today we're having a quiet day and I'm going to dip into another book.
