The Fabulous and Frustrating 40s

In July 2008, I joined sparkpeople because I had hit my highest weight ever. Daily exercise is part of my life now, but I still have a lot of work to do on the eating side. The 40s are awesome in so many ways, but the big downside is that the weight is harder and harder to take off. I'm happy that I've gotten a lot healthier, but I still have a lot of work to do!

Fake mashed potatoes are amazing!! Cauliflower and quick cooking tapioca in crock pot, immersion blend, add cheese (recipe called for sour cream, I didn't have any) - dine!! Delicious!! You won't fool anyone, but they are tasty!! Message me your email (if u want) andi can email you the recipe! Haven't gotten it into spark people yet!!

Finally had to get it into the recipe tracker so i could see how many calories!!!

There are at least 3 Smithsonians I want to get to and that's not counting the Air and Space, which OF COURSE I'd like to see but doubt I'll have time given everybody goes there!

A night outing is a GREAT idea! I hadn't thought of that. I was focusing on what I could cram into day time.

The Holocaust Museum is also on my list but my B list, I'm half-Irish and half-Jewish, it'd hit me harder probably. I didn't visit Pearl Harbour because I just didn't need to go there in my head. It's not that I avoid difficult things -- but I've been given enough in my own life! When I'm on particularly a short stay, I like to keep things positive.

I doubt I'll get to it because of that BUT it's totally a to-do otherwise. One day, I'll probably visit the Israel-itself but I *think* I'd like to do that on a tour (with others). Normally, I just GO someplace and don't do touristy stuff but THIS DC trip? I'm about the touristy :D

Yeah. I keep looking for st else in the meantime.

A girl who left here is working at the post office and has now got 'in' on the state hiring register. She's starting to get calls for state positions.

It's more lowly work but she's looking to continue onto her science/ maths masters and wants to roll that education back into gov placement later. For now, she sorts and delivers mail!

What a relief for me! That was a 5.5 hour trip! :)
