    Be good to yourself.

    Yes, polenta pretty much is the same as regular white grits which being a Southern boy I do like.

    I separated from the ex three years ago because he couldn't get sober. He's doing fine now and we are still friends and I'll talk to him every few months or so. He seems to be sober now. It was a tough time, but I'm over it now. It's a dreadful disease.

    Mmmmmmmmm making me hungry.

    Interesting phenomena at lunch today, I have been walking and drinking water, and I wasn't even hungry at lunch! (I ate a good bkfst but usually I do anyway). Usually I start dying for lunch about 10 or 11 or so (WAY too early). I did eat lunch anyway. I am starting to get hungry again so I need to eat.

    ANYWAY - last night was horrible too, got out of church at almost 8:30, starving even tho I had had an early supper - so I got a bunch of the worst things... so mad at myself, I knew what I was doing and didn't care, and then my gerd woke me up at 3 and kept waking me up (I fully expected that, knowing what I'd eaten would do that).

    Well back on the horse today, took a shorter walk today because really I overdid it yesterday (and messed up my neck again - forgot I am supposed to take it easy on chiropractor days). Part of the walk was a pretty good steady incline... whew! automatic deep breathing exercise there!

    Did a little housework too - ttyl. Sorry you missed Roundup. I know you enjoy it.

    i'll chime in i suppose. i was wondering, why are nurses in such bad health to begin with? i'm not yet a nurse, but i work in a hospital doing risk management. so many of the nurses here are obese (to put it "lightly,") smoke, i know of several who do drugs... pretty much some of the most unhealthy people i've ever met. and yet they work in an industry that is supposed to encourage people to be healthier. i don't get it.

    as for diet and hunger, i switched up my diet about 3 months ago, and have had 100% positive results. down to the lightest i've been in 7 or so years, down 2 sizes on my pants, an inch off my belly, lower blood pressure and cholesterol and i almost never feel hungry. that's the weirdest part, never feeling hungry anymore. i have to remind myself to eat, or eat when i don't feel like it or i fear i will come in well below my calorie goal. i’m trying to get my wife to join me on the diet, but you can’t force a horse to drink.

    exercise is weight lifting 2 – 3 time a week, and 30 min dog walks twice a day. i’m hoping that when i start nursing school in august i don’t lose my way and start gaining, or fall into the unhealthy nursing lifestyle.
