Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog about the “jerk.” I have since learned that the woman finally divorced him. Good for her! Whenever we encounter people like that, we have to be braver and stronger.
Good for you for sticking to your own goals. Sometimes those who love us think they're being helpful by telling us that we're just fine. That's how I kept my extra weight for 25 years. I was convinced I was just fine. I'm a lot better now.

Sorry, I'm not on your page as much as I would like to be, but girl, I am keeping my 29 month old grand daughter and I good to get up at 5:50 three days a week to go walk 5/5.5 miles before she comes and strength train for 50-60 minutes two days a week after she leaves and then on Saturday...whew! After that, I want to eat supper, get a shower and go to bed.

Anyway, have a great week and keep doing your best each day.

Thanks for commenting on my fitness blog. Reporting a 50% increase today. I can now do THREE bench presses with that bar. Monday I go for FOUR. Ever upward! Bit by bit.
I always do yoga by video. I've never found a class that goes at my speed. The way they jump around from one pose to another, DH calls them yoga gymnasts.

Okay to answer your questions -- Fitbook or not? Either way. I've done both a plain ol notebook and then the Fitbook. Thing I love about the Fitbook is it keeps me focused. I love them. I did a blog awhile back about it: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j
ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=5773408
I love that I can track my sleep (a very big deal for me), my freggies, water I drink, exercsie I do. It provides a place for both long term and weekly/short term goals. But nothing you couldn't do with a regular notebook, too. In the States they sell them at Target and I believe they do up there, too (I might be wrong though) but they're on Amazon. They're about $20 but they're a 12 week book so pricey? A tad, but for me it is worth the money.

I am tracking my hunger as well. I am trying to let my hunger versus the clock drive when and why I eat then focusing on the satiety signals in each meal. I am also working to keep up on my protein because it helps me with overall satiety during the day (I get HANGRY if I don't get in enough protein emoticon ).

I hope that answers your questions! Let me know if you have any more!

What did you think about his book? Worth the $$? I checked to see if my library has it but nope. I agree, there was some stuff I was a little lukewarm on what he had to say. The snack thing... hmmm... if I am hungry, I will eat. Ya know?
