February 28, 2007 — Just 4 Today

Just 4 Today logoJust 4 Today, take my fiber supplement twice (done once), drink 2 liters of water (about 1/2) and weigh myself (done). And walk 3 times today for 15 minutes each time (GO 3415!). Just today.

What are you going to do today?

My Daily Affirmation

Just today, I’m not going to eat between meals and I’m not going to take seconds. And I’ll weigh myself and use the tools of The Hacker’s Diet to help me reach (and keep) my goals.

February 27, 2007 — Just 4 Today

Just 4 Today, I’ll:

  1. Weigh myself (done)
  2. Drink my fiber twice (I’ve done it once – I’m getting more consistant)
  3. Drink 2 liters of water (about 1/3 – I’m good at home, but I really need to do better through the day)
  4. Walk 3 miles (My 3415 Plan really works – I walk 3 miles without even noticing it)
  5. Measure my Blood Sugar 7 times (I’ve done it twice. And !!! my post-breakfast reading is a healthy 110 — that would be a great number even if I hadn’t eaten 1/2 hour ago. Yesterday at this time, it was 141 and it continued to go up to 159 by the time I got to work)
  6. NOT eat between meals & NOT take seconds (I’ve done very well at this for a couple of weeks now)

I wish all this healthy consistency was making me lose weight. But you can’t have everything. At least my blood sugar is gradually getting better. Maybe my weight will too if I keep this up.

What are you going to do today?

Tired of hearing about my Blood Sugar? Take a break with Felt Dollies

Luckily our tagline is “A place to discuss food and eating and the state of the world” — a line that means virtually nothing is Off Topic here!

I was wandering through this week’s BlogJolted Blog, PlayLibrary — it’s like a dream come true. I wish there was a place like http://www.playlibrary.com/ when I was a kid (hard as it is to believe, there wasn’t an Internet at all back then.) At my day job, I’m the coordinator for a public library. And the most popular section of our site is the kids activities. So everytime I run across a site catering to kids entertainment, I really sit-up and take notice.
There are posts about Science Kits & American Girl Movies. And there’s a post about Felt Dollies. I can’t tell you how much I love felt crafts — I’ve got a bag packed with felt hanging on my office door right now.

And it doesn’t read like a shopping site. There’s a friendly, chatty tone that makes the stuff sound even more attractive. Do you think anyone would mind if I spent tomorrow cutting-up felt?
