Welcome to my little corner of insanity. Caution: It may be contagious.

It takes 40 weeks for a new life to be created. I am going to make a new life for me in that same time frame!
* I will break some old habits
* I will develop some new healthier habits
* I will slowly make the changes I want and need to make
* I will WANT to make the changes I Need to make!

OMG! My laundry is washed, dried, folded and put away in the same day!
My dishpan is empty each evening. I hope these habits can survive with my class schedule!

5/16 Update: nope, my dishes are overflowing and my dresser is empty. But the habit survived through finals and my washer breaking! =D
9/16 Update: Hubby (or son) does dishes almost every night. Washer is replaced. Clothes are folded after each wash.

Keep walking at night

    I tracked all three meals today! emoticon I'm at 11 total. Took my run to the dog park today. I just didn't feel like dealing with the dogcatcher.

    emoticon I tracked breakfast, lunch and dinner today! Plus 3 makes a total of 8.

    I have a new tool for figuring the nutrition numbers for recipes. As I get the hang of making adjustments (like drop out the pasta from tonights dish so I can add the substitution separately which I did by scanning the barcode on the box). I then use the new "Quick Entry" on the tracker. Weeks from now I'll have no clue what I ate, but Ill know it had 6.5 grams of protein (the red lentil pasta I used in place of the wheat pasta had 21g of protein!

    I'm working hard to adapt. Thanks for the support.

    I saw the dogcatcher lurking around the park, but she didn't see me. I ran a couple loops around and headed back home. I'm at 58 miles.

    I tracked breakfast and lunch on saturday (+2) and all three meals today (+ 3) I had chocolate chip cookies for breakfast, but I tracked them!

    Thanks for the nutrition app goodie. I emphasis the "app" because THAT phone goodie is NOT running any nutrition app!!!! emoticon

    The challenge is on. I hope you have the same success you had in our first challenge. Just this time you won't kick my ... glutes.

    Generally I could use a head start in a tracking challenge. However, I'm ready to start fresh and from an equal place. emoticon

    I have a can't fail plan this time. When I make my meal plan, I choose only recipes that give the nutrition information. I seldom follow any recipe exact, but it's a step to make it easier.

    Off we go! May the best dog win! emoticon
    ...... that's right ... your a casual traveler now. Good luck with that. emoticon
