That is a good goal. That is a good idea to do anyway. I do that from habit now. It helps to keep one of those small notebooks in your pocket... You know the type of notebook... the type that you see nerds on tv shows use. Then when you eat something, right away, write it down in the notebook... At the end of the day, add things onto your tracker, that you wrote into the book.

PATRICIA441 Yes... I have relatives and friends who do the shopping for me, for now. My mom is well enough to at least do the shopping for us. A couple friends of mine, drive our car for her, when we need to do our shopping. emoticon

So glad you are keeping in touch with the doctors. I do not like to go out either with so much flu going around especially to a doctors or hospital which is a full of germs of all kinds. I am praying each day is a bit better, Do you have someone who can go to the food store for you? Wish I were close by, I would help you through,. I am there is spirit though!!

Seriously folks, I will be OK... This will just take me a long time to get over. I just need to be patient.

I keep in touch regularly with my Doctor, because of certain health issues. I told him before about issues with diarrhea, and he said to not worry about it too much, and just stay hydrated. I cannot take Imodium, due to my health issues.
I will be OK... As I said, I have immune system issues, which means it takes me longer to get over things... but I do eventually get over them. My Dr. said that as long as I keep hydrated, and as long as I do not have a high fever, then I am better off staying at home, and avoiding getting exposed to other germs / viruses.

The clinics are breeding grounds for germs and viruses. And the Dr can't really cure colds. Also... I can only take a narrow field of antibiotics, and so I need to save them for true emergencies. If I use them too often, they will become ineffective for when I truly need them. As my doctor has recommended to me in the past, I am sticking to the "BRAT" diet, to combat the diarrhea. As for the flu... I had my shots, so if that does not help against it, it is unlikely that anything else the Dr gave, would help any better. No... I would rather stay at home, and avoid risking exposure to another germ / virus.

Linda, if you are having continued stomach problems you might want to have some testing. I know there are certain foods I have to be careful with now that can bother me. I do like yogurt to settle my stomach. It ain't fun getting old!!!!! lol

Have you tried the Green Giant individual steamers? 1 to 2 servings each and only $1 at Wally world. Quiet a variety. I like the ones with rice added to the blend.

Testy, If you have diarrhea for more than 2 days you should see a doctor. Have you tried live culture yogurt and/or Imodium?

Nah... This is just because of the diarrhea. I still have a sick tummy. LOL
I love cooked broccoli and cauliflower. I love all of the cabbage family. I just need to avoid the high fiber foods, until my tummy settles down.

Getting older can be a real bummer. I know there is a lot of food I have trouble with now. I cannot eat corn or mushrooms as they go right through me. Foods that never gave me a gassy tummy now do like broccoli or beans. Never bothered me before. Such is life I guess!

We will continue the same goal next week then. Have you ever had a drink by Naked. I had one on the plane today. It was banana, strawberry and so good. I am definitely going to look into them as they have no fat or sugar.Tasty way to get fruit. Not sure how much they cost though!

I am doing fine with the water. I always try to drink 8 glasses anyway. It helps to keep hydrated, living as far north as I do. If I don't keep hydrated, my skin starts to show it, and with this cold weather, it chaps and cracks easily...

I don't have a problem sleeping. I sleep a solid 6+1/2 hours to 7 hours a day... max. I do not need more then that. Sure... a water challenge would be good. Or a fruit and vegetable challenge. (5 per day)

No problem Testy! How about drinking eight glasses of water a day? I take it you have trouble sleeping. I know I do, don't get near enough most nights. Thankfully I can take a nap if necessary.

I don't dare even try them, due to issues with my wrist... I would like to do a team challenge, that is not physical, or related to sleep...

Great idea Testy! I had started one a while back with pushups on the bathroom wall every time you used the potty. For me that is a lot because I drink so much water. One we could try for would be eating more fruits and vegetables each day! Thanks so much for the input!

I would like to see some new team goals created. I do not walk much, or do push-ups, due to my physical limitations, and my natural amount of sleep is only around 7 hours. Any more than that, and I get a headache.

We could have some easier to attain goals, to encourage people to try new things.

Maybe a goal could be to try a new recipe, once a week?
Or maybe as a personal goal, we could try to learn something new every week?
