Day 22 - 0 pts.

Day 23 - emoticon I had almonds. Yummy! 10 pts.

Day 24 - emoticon Spinach. Love it raw, hate it cooked. 10 pts.

Day 25 - emoticon Dannon Light Nonfat Vanilla. I LOVE this stuff!! I'm serious, y'all, I could eat a BUCKET of it, I always measure it out carefully (I buy the 32 oz. containers) 10 pts.

Day 26 - emoticon The third one, with the cardiologist, is really an eye-opener. The link Key posted must have been an old one, here's the one I found:

healthandwellness.vanderbilt.edu/new
s/
2010/03/heart-disease-the-female-facR>tor/


Forwarded to all the women I have in my contacts. One in three women has cardiovascular disease, y'all. : ( 10 pts.

Day 27 - emoticon I do not like oatmeal, so this was a bit of a challenge for me. I made steel cut oats and added cinnamon and raisins. I don't think I exactly "enjoyed" it, but I ate it. 10 pts.

Day 28 - emoticon Took some time to just throw down with a Sudoko puzzle and just quit stressing over everything I "should" be doing. 10 pts.

Day 29 - emoticon I'm having a healthy heart extravanganza, including high fiber cereal, fruit, nonfat yogurt, leafy greens in a big salad, raw vegetables and nuts for snacks, whole grain bread and crackers, some walking, some chores, and a little throw down and relax. Might even have some popcorn later, too. 10 pts.

Bonus - emoticon This one's always a crapshoot for me, I have insomnia (no medical cause for it, I'm just "lucky" that way). But I actually slept good 4 nights. 10 pts.

Weekly total - 90 pts.

Day 9 - emoticon Stir-fry for supper, used olive oil. 10 pts.

Day 10 - emoticon Fiber One cereal, with raisins. And yogurt. 10 pts.

Day 11 - emoticon The links didn't work, so I just did a search on the website for the wellcasts. The first 2 sounded a little rushed, like they were just reading off a piece of paper. But the 3rd one, with the cardiologist-- wow! Just makes you want to run out to the kitchen and start throwing away the crap, and then get out there and exercise. The fourth one was okay. Really, if you only have time to listen to one, do the 3rd one. 25 pts.

Day 12 - emoticon Spinach, romaine, cabbage, cucumbers, celery, green peppers, cauliflower, grape tomatoes. 10 pts.

Day 13 - emoticon Caught up on laundry, cleaned the bathroom, ran & emptied the dishwasher, picked up from the weekend. 10 pts.

Day 14 - emoticon Raisins & dates with my cereal. 10 pts.

Bonus - emoticon I'm still doing the January Jumpstart videos every day (they're all strength training except one is cardio). 5 pts.

Total for the week: 90 pts.

I already do a lot of these, so I am in. Interested to see what the rules are, though!

MISSRUTH, try eggs with some spinach and mushrooms, then put them into a half bell pepper! Top with raw spinach. Very good, and lots of protein!
