My talking meter says "Please relax during measurement" when I turn it on. I know that matters with blood pressure measurement, but I'm not sure how important it is with blood sugar.

I thought Rottweiler should have won not Fox. Flamingo was my #2 pick.

I just lacked 18 calories making my daily calories burned goal on my fitness tracker. As I sat here snacking on an ounce of mixed nuts and sipping on a diet root beer watching the ball game, my watch dings, and I see I've met my goal. That was a 180 calorie snack, burned 18 calories doing it, so net calories 172. That's like getting a discount. I didn't know it was so easy, I guess I need to raise my goal.

So eating mixed nuts really worked out for you this time!

(I find it hard to portion them, myself.)

My appetite seems to peak about 1 hour before going to bed at night - bad timing

If we, figuratively speaking, keep shooting ourself in the foot with what we eat, eventually we literally won't have any toes.

I wish this weather would make up its mind. The grass was greening up last week, fire ant mounds were peaking, today its sleeting.

Heh. We're three or four months away from even seeing our grass again. The high today will be above freezing for the first time in ... quite a while.

But we don't have fire ants. You can keep those!
