I should be sleeping but....

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

I had a procedure today, so I was sleeping most of the day. Now it's after 2:00am and I am wide awake. I had a great experience today at Steven's hospital. It is a really old kinda run down place but everyone I had to deal with was professional and nice. I am stuck in bed for today recovering but I feel great. I should be able to do water aerobics later tonight. I have been reading allot of stuff on Spark People today and have learned allot. I am a mother of a 15 year old daughter. I've been to college and I like to think I'm not an idiot, but I am amazed at how little I know about nutrition,exercise, and all around good health. I've been sick allot over the last year and I took care of my friend while she was dieing of cancer. Sad but true..It took something so horrible to get me to seek the help of Spark People. I have to thank my friend Anna and Pam for introducing me to it.

I am having the hardest time with logging my food. I admit, I ate Hamburger Helper tonight. I added frozen peas so I did get one serving of veggies. emoticon When I tried to enter it on my food tracker I got frustrated. After taking the time to enter all the label info it said I entered an incorrect serving and it deleted everything I had entered. WTF...I'm just venting. I'm sure I'll get the hang of it.

    Glad to hear that you've found Sparkpeople! And you're not an idiot. There's so much conflicting information out there about nutrition and being healthy, it's easy to get confused. With you're adding a food not listed, I just put in the name, calories and fat. Also, make sure you save it to your favorites. That way you only have to enter it once. Don't worry and don't give up! You'll get the hang of it emoticon
