Tuesday Domino Effect!!!
Very disappointed with myself. That lunch yesterday had a ridiculous amount of calories. And I had too much wine with dinner and then was craving sweets after dinner. So that is a double whammy. Then, I could not sleep because of the wine, so ... Read more

Friday, 2/18/11 - Water
Goal for today:
Drink water. When I first started Spark, I overdid it on the water, had to go to the bathroom all the time. And at my age, I leak!!! So, then I went in the opposite direction and have not had water at all. I think four... Read more
Thursday, 2/17/11- Food Showdown
Every time I read the Spark Food Showdown, a feature that I like and think is pretty funny, I realize I have no idea about most of the foods they talk about. I never got into the habit of eating like that. I feel so sorry for people who did, an... Read more

Wow, I had this totally healthy breakfast and it was 503 calories or some ridiculous amount. I guess 300 is unreasonable for breakfast.

Okay, this is what I mean. I have established the habit of recording my foods, now, most of the time. I was using me... Read more
