Thank you for commenting on my recent Rantings blog! I will be interested to learn more about Shaun Hadsall and will keep an eye open for your observations.

I don't eat processed foods, we cook from scratch just about all the time. I've returned to using proper butter as opposed to using long-chain low-fat spreads, although I use the butter wisely and minimally, and don't abuse the quantities. I weigh and track everything unless a rare situation means that I can't. Weirdly, by now only having 3 meals a day and not nibbling in between times, even within my calorie range, I find I'm not thinking about food so much. It has had a hugely calming effect on me by NOT eating so often; even if it was something healthy which I tracked diligently and kept within my calorie and nutritional balance range, it seemed to make me want something else and feel disappointed if I knew I had to forego it. I eat 3 meals daily now, and the cravings for more have gone. That has been a strange discovery, I can tell you!

I'm interested to see you live in Spotsylvania. My husband is hugely knowledgeable about the American Civil War and we were actually at Gettysburg on the day of 9/11. (What a strangely spooky place to be that day, the site of the most famous of all the USCW battles, where thousands lost their lives, on the day of the worst hostile act on US soil. We'd been there 2 days earlier and managed to 'do' the whole battlefield and museum, which was fortunate as on that terrible, terrible day the site was understandably closed, but were back to visit the antique/memorabiiia shops en route Antietam and Fredericksburg.) DB has his own study which is pretty much dedicated to the ACW, and his library is as impressive as his knowledge. We haven't yet made it to Spotsylvania, but one day I'm sure we will.

Thank you for you comment and the information about Shaun Hadsall.

Warm wishes to youÖ.

Josephine

so glad to have you as part of the Reaching Our Goals team.

I'll be setting up some new 'sticky' topics (the ones that stay at the top of the list) asking for suggestions. Please be sure to offer your ideas.

we also have a monthly allotment to buy team Spark goodies. Can't wait to read some suggestions on how to use those!
