    Cheerfulsong, nice to meet you.
    It's great to have something your passionate about that also keeps you youthful. Tell me more about this "positive 100 thoughts" thing.
    Hi again Tweety ~

    I thought "What is this person asking me about?" - only to realize I had made a minor "typo" in my post; sowwy! :imbar

    (That 'plus'-sign was supposed to have been a "%"-sign instead, reading like this: I'm a'wonderin - Are other nurses here at (all.nurses) who enjoy sharing *100% positive ideas* with each other, for encouraging each other in them - as simply I really enjoy being around more such folks...

    Makes good sense?

    Also, our Figure-skatin' is part of a dozen journeys, we engage passionately... We simply believe that in completely immersing/enjoying ourselves in FUN Win Win situations, we *honor & praise God* who created us just for such purposes...

    rn2be, glad you found us. You're post #1000!!!!! There were actually 1000 posts on another thread too.

    Perhaps Deb might want to start Part III!

    That's a good idea to study while you work out. I find sometimes even going half-time I drop exercise to write a paper or because "I need the break because I've been working so hard". Trying to keep it a priority is not easy.

    What kind of lunches do you pack? I'm caught in a rut of veggie burgers, salad and fruit.

    I'm sure you will have a lot to offer. Please continue to share.

    I made it to the gym this afternoon, after telling myself I was too busy. I'm glad I did. I'm always glad I work out when I do, just getting there is the battle.

    Opps. I missed this post earlier.

    Yes, Annie it makes sense now. I thought there was some book or program
    "100 positive thoughts". LOL

    I love being around positive people, they energize me, and I can feel good energy from you. I'll strive to be as positive as I can. But I'm going to be honest. Life is tough and stressful and my constitution is such that I can't be 100% positive all the time, otherwise I'm in denial of my true feelings. Sometimes I have to sift through the negative to become positive again. So please forgive me if I can't make that goal.

    But sharing positive ideas as opposed to negative ones, I can do.

    Just saying hi! My moods are staying pretty steady, thank God! Just a bit of depression (chemical imbalance versus situational). Anxiety a bit much but I did start doing some trial work periods this week in SPITE of that! (I have been out on disability for bipolar and anxiety disorder). Starting REAL slow and working my way up.

    Unfortunately, being on depakote, which is responsible for my improved MENTAL health, has really made me put on weight. I am told it shuts off the signal you should receive when you have had enough food, and that description fits! Plus, financially, I haven't been able to get the quality of food that would help me with weight loss. I've gained 12 lb since January. With beginning work, the $ will be better AND I will be more active.

    I did walk last week, plus go out on my bike twice (it was BEAUTIFUL! here in Maine!) and I hope to keep doing so, and walking :angel2: Yeah right, little fitness angel, that's me! ROFL!

    Well anyway, I have been reading you guys' posts and wanted to check in! xoxox

    I'm going to ask a mod to close this thread and then delete it in a few days.

    We've reached 1000 posts and 100 pages and for bandwidth sake, see thread #3!.

    I don't pack anything too thrilling - especially on those days where I'm packing lunch and dinner. My staple is yogurt mixed with the Kashi Nutty Nuggets and a banana or fresh berries. I find it to be extraordinarily filling so that tends to be my "main course" most nights for dinner.

    I also found these wonderful Thomas' whole grain bagels that are easy to pack (front pocket of the bookbag for the win!). I'm a big grazer as opposed to a rigid meal eater so I tend to pack lots of small things (cheese, the no sugar added applesauces, fresh fruit/veggies, nuts, dry cereal, whole grain cereal bars, granola bars, pretzels - I'm a Kashi addict).

    Pretty much the items mentioned above and salads and veggies and fruits. Unfortunately, during the school year I find myself eating a lot of the same foods. Also, I will go 3-4 days eating salads then once the greens run out I have to wait until I have time to hit the store again to get more. I can't wait until time is not such an issue - right now I "bulk" grocery shop every 2 weeks.

    I'm not eating 100% great right now (I've also had to cut back on organic to save $$, I try to prioritize with dairy first - milk/milk products & eggs). I don't have the time to run to 2 grocery stores - the health food oriented one that is 40 minutes away and the local superstore 10 minutes away. Going to Whole Foods is a treat right now! Though, I must admit, the mainstream store is getting more and more stock of organics and "healthy" items.

    I'm contemplating trying some of those Kashi shakes - I'm nervous that once clinicals start in the fall and "real nursing school" that I'll have even less time and be too tempted to eat the junk on the floor! I figure a drinkable meal, though not great, might be good in a pinch.

    Off to class! Looking forward to learning and reading more.
