Our assignment for next week is to keep a 3 day food diary. <BR> I've tracked my food off and on for months on SP, but find it time consuming and not very user friendly. <BR> <BR> I'm so out of the mood to do this. Interesting I need to do it for a grade. I always think things happen for a reason, even the seamingly small things. So I guess I better choose my days, huh? Anyone have any motivational th... Sat, 12 Sep 2009 09:40:57 EST Proud of myself tonight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2311202 Over the years, I've turned to food when I'm bored, frustrated, depressed or feel the need to procrastinate. So, here I am tonight, frustrated and feeling left out of decisions my daughters are making. But, I'm drinking water! Good for me ... tomorrow will be a better day! Wed, 12 Aug 2009 23:28:36 EST heartburn... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2304979 Wow, never had heartburn till I hit my 50's. Now, rarely it appears, but boy is it annoying! So, tonight, after a wonderful pad thai early dinner, here comes the darned hb again! We were at a friend's house and she gifted me with the papaya enzymes she chewed while she was pregnant! Within a few minutes I felt fine again! <BR> I've heard tums are bad news, they actually do the opposite of what they're intended to do so I was thrilled to find a natural and easy solution and thought I'd s... Mon, 10 Aug 2009 23:35:17 EST heartburn in the middle of the night woea woea woe weo http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2299549 Ugh, I actually ate well today, and started the morning out with a 1 hour/3 mile walk with a friend. Had a spinach and grilled scallop salad at Macaroni Grill for dinner at 6pm, yet here I am wide awake with a light case of heartburn for the first time in months ... I wanna go back to sleep and for some reason, the Tom Jones song "Pussy Cat Pussy Cat" is running through my mind with the words woe woe woe. I know! like the heartburn and insomnia isn't bad enuf!! lol Sun, 9 Aug 2009 04:06:26 EST Another start up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2182705 Sure having a hard time getting motivated. I'm moving more and more, but my eating feels largely out of control Fri, 26 Jun 2009 11:39:29 EST A beautiful day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1886352 What a gorgeous day in Denver and how fortunate I am that I got to spend lots of time outdoors!

Woopiii Mon, 23 Feb 2009 20:05:55 EST A dance break http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1817805 Soo much homework to do. When my mind got overloaded, I got up and danced! Then danced my way upstairs, made progress with the laundry, and danced back down - got 10 minutes of exercise, clean sheets and towels, and now I'm back to work. That felt great! Sat, 21 Feb 2009 15:29:59 EST It's so little http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1810961 got a good look into my soon apartment living room and bedroom. They're sooooo tiny! I like the prospect of traveling lightly for the first time in my life! Wed, 18 Feb 2009 23:37:15 EST protein http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1807122 So I'm being more cautious with protein, I love almond butter on a banana for breakfast! Tue, 17 Feb 2009 18:49:36 EST Interesting nutrition observation on 2 year old http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1803757 We had my granddaughter's 3rd birthday party on Saturday and the 2 1/2 year old that I nanny was here. She had an absolute temper tantrum, full blown melt down, way beyond the norm for a 2 year old. When Dad took her home, Mom gave her protein and she came out of it instantly! <BR> <BR> So, since studies say sugar doesn't affect childrens' behavior (I question most studies regarding products though ...I sometimes wonder who paid who) perhaps for some, could it be the lack of protein that ... Mon, 16 Feb 2009 17:16:34 EST Making Lists http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1800413 Started making lists today, what to take, what to sell and what I'll need to buy.

Sat, 14 Feb 2009 22:00:58 EST the purging begins http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1796142 I'm starting to clean out closets.
