Default Mon.

  • Exercise > 40 mins 3 days: 70 mins
  • Calories < 1600 per day: 1467,
  • Protein > 50 grams / day: 36,
  • Vegetables > 2.5 c / day: 2,
I need to amend what I wrote earlier about vegetables: "CDC site says (2.5 cups) is the minimum I need." Well, 2 cups is a lot of broccoli! So I just had a look again. It's 2.5 cups of Fruit and Veggies. Ok, fruits I can eat all day. I just didn't eat any yesterday. But I do have a few grapefruit & that sounds like something good to eat today. And ... I always need more protein!

I have to say that posting here really helps!

Lisa, Talking to your (free) nutritionist sounds like a really great idea. I definitely don't have expert advice, just opinions...

Except on questions of hair. I haven't done more that trim mine in more years that I care to admit!

April and Joanna, welcome back.

American members: regardless of your party affiliation, please vote today for whomever you truly think will do the best job for our country, your state, your district, your county, and township, parish, or borough. Remember we are entitled to our secret ballot--you don't have to confess if you voted for someone your friends/family/acquaintances don't support.

Thanks, everyone, for your greetings and encouragement.

Will be back later today.
