IM SO OVER WINTER!!! At least the snow stopped. It's too cold for snow here. I mean, 20 degrees (feels like 7,cause of the wind) is not a good snow temperature. Wait, I see some tiny flakes in the wind. Like the wind is the snow, or something. Rrrg. Nothing is really collecting, but the thought of blowing snow in the freezing air does not motivate me to mail this envelope that I need to pop in the mailbox out front.

I have to pee, but Im waiting for James to call, and I dont want to miss it. I know that as soon as I get up to take care of business, he'll call.

There is a new headline on Yahoo! right now that states a high-carb diet is linked to weight loss. I dont understand why people dont get it: burn more than you eat, and you lose weight. Take in more than you burn, and you gain weight. It does not matter WHAT you eat, and long as it's less than what you burn. (Of course, it does matter in terms of nutrition...Atkins seems to forget that, as they advertise with peanutbuttercup.jpg next to the promising text....but nutrition is a whole different [important] thing.) Sorry to rant. rah rah rah.

I try to be very encouraging of the swimmers in the slower lanes. At least they show up to practice and do laps and want to improve. They know they are slow, but come to practice at 6:30am stay healthy and fit. I love the fact that our team has such a diverse group. Some people are training for meets, and some are just training. It's all good either way.

OK, no more stalling. Time to mail an envelope.

Wintah sucks (Boston accent). Snow will arrive here around midnight. Sick of the cold! I need heat...

Agree about the weight loss rant you went on...just eat less, exercise more, you'll lose weight. If you have 2 Big Macs, Large Fry, Large coke, get 1 Big Mac, Med Fry, Large Diet Coke, then go for a 20 minute walk...

Now having said all that, I wish I could do it myself! :)

Opinion needed...
How do you feel about a guy, who is desparate to get married, falling head over heels in love (again!), with a girl from Russia, who he's had physical contact with for only 2 weeks? He's paid thousands upon thousands of dollars for her to get her paperwork in order to move here (she arrives today). He sends her boxes of stuff, for her and her family. They have "known" each other for about a year, but like I said only actually seen each other for about 2 weeks. I feel he's making a terrible mistake...

1. Why are you so desperate to get married? (just curious)
2. I dont know your personal situiation, or you as a person, so I really cannot offer advice. I think you already know what is best for you, and you dont need a relative stranger nosing in on things.
3. Lastly (And this is not advice..this is just my general take on making decisions)be courageous and responsible in whatever decision you make.

this guy I was friends with...I would never do a thing like that. Marriage is serious stuff!

Low-Carb Diet
Hi Lisa,

I think you meant LOW-Carb diet. I have been following one for 2 years now. You don't have to eat the Atkins crap to eat low-carb. I elimated sugar and white flour from my diet, and I've lost 110 pounds.

Yes....for some people...it works!!!

Re: Low-Carb Diet
Congrats Barry. If you lost 110 lbs, then you really needed to do something! (And I dont mean that in a mean way. I mean it in a healthy, loving, caring "being overweight is not good for you, and we want you to live and be happy" way).

And yes, it was a high carb diet in the study. I dont think cutting back in unhealthy. I think jumping on the Atkins bandwagon, eating bacon and eggs, and hi-fat foods is a bad bad thing. It's not a lifestyle change. If you were able to cut back what you needed to and eat healthyful meals, then more power to ya.

I am just a big fan of exersize and people moving off their bootys :)
