I'm going to hone in on sleep as a g... Read more
Bad news first:
My UP bracelet died. Apparently, they still haven't quite figured out the capacitor issue. Andrew's is still working fine... which has me a little jealous and grumpy, but I'll get over that, LOL. The support folks at Jawb... Read more

I find that I do much better at sticking with my plan by logging breakfast, lunch and snack first thing in the morning.
That way, when something tempting comes up, I say to myself, "Nope, it's not on my plan, I didn't log it, I can't have i... Read more

So, now that I have the iPad 2 - which, by the way, really IS all that it is cracked up to be - I'm looking for ways I can use it to help me with everyday stuff.
