Tuesday - net free day

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

It's true! The internet went out this morning . . . and I was net-free for 7 hours. It was glorious!!! I'm gonna plan that into my schedule from now on.

Yesterday, I got really hungry mid-afternoon . . . but I had a lot of water and chewed a piece of sugarfree gum . . . and I made it until dinner (kale soup - yummmm). I ended up under calories yesterday, but I did not get hungry last night. But I had a horrible night, waking up. So I finally just got up at 4AM.

However, I am feeling surprisingly well today. I can tell my body is getting back into a happy place (rather than feeling fat and yucky) . . . and it's feeling good again.

I had my meals for the day planned out ahead of time so having no internet was not a bother. But I did miss out on checking in with my teams and SparkFriends.

Tomorrow, I'm having lunch with FIT4MEIN2013 . . . she is passing through the same town where I have an appt with my chiropractor. There is a great little restaurant there that has real home made organic foods. It is one of the only places I really like to have lunch. I'm really looking forward to meeting her . . . she has a remarkable story, so look her up! She has already given me such encouragement, just reading her story.

Time to stir the soup . . . DH will be home soon.

Hope y'all had a great day! Keep on Sparkin'

    I spend all day every day online and love the connection. I also hate to love it! On the occasions that it is down, I reconnect with other things that I family!

I enjoyed lunch yesterday and look forward to a repeat performance really soon!

  Enjoy your Special Lunch. The Restaurant sounds Super Great. You don't find places like that very often. Enjoy your Relaxing Time Outside and in the Woods with Bad Leroy Brown. God Blessings to You and Everyone. Have a Wonderful Week. Take Care.

    The time in the woods was very relaxing for you. It would have been for me.
I hope you had a nice lunch.

    What a blessing for the net to be down! .............. I am sure if mine were down often, I would get rid of the tendonitis and the pain in the neck!!! .............. emoticon ......... But since it won't, I will just have to pull myself away! ........ My daily 10 min allotment is up! emoticon

    I frequently pull back from the net...if I don't, I am sitting far too long and that is not good! Have a great day today!

    It feels good to unplug every once in a while.

I will look up your friend. I'm always up for inspirational stories. I hope you guys have a great lunch!

    I watch "Chopped' on the Food Channel sometimes and I think they had something on there yesterday called Rainbow Kale. The stems were all different colors and they said it had a sweet taste as I remember. I always thought Kale would taste bitter. I have thought about making Kale chips that I have heard so much about. Have you tried them?

BTW, what's the news on the fires in your area. It all looked pretty scary last night on the news!

    Soup . . . my favorite "go to" for breakfast, lunch or dinner . . . sometimes all 3! LOL . . . I am seriously addicted to my Dad's soups. Delish!

Have fun tomorrow. Glad you survived your net-free day!

    I've had several interrupted connections. But I pass the time with work, a good read, reflections etc. I hope you enjoy your visit with your spark friend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love my "disconnected" time. I try to take one day a month and simply unplug.

Glad you enjoyed yourself.

    On the one hand, I wouldn't mind being without internet, cause I would get more done. On the other hand, I wouldn't have access to any of the recipes I use. Guess I should print some of them off just in case.

    Just read a great book 7, about getting rid of stuff, and media etc. So freeing and your right with out the internet there would be time. Not giving it up yet though. emoticon
