Need sleep, busy day, early morning, not sure why I’m still up.

OH! I do have to tell you I hit the gym or the first time since the surgery. SO MUCH FUN. I know some of you don’t agree but that hour with nothing but music and weights was just what I needed today.

    Love the new site! Very impressive and fun! I also really like the food journal structure-is that something other people can use or is it just something you've formatted for your blog? Reply

    I love the new site. I share the same question as Lizzie who asked if other people can use your food journal structure. Is there a way we could get the format? Reply

    But if you skip the fudge, all you're getting is ice cream ... and the vanilla cone is also 3 points. I'll take my ice cream on a cone! :D Reply

    Morning All! I just came up with the new table for my food journal. I like it too! :~) I have a generator for the old one... http://ronisweigh.com/2007/12/the-daily-food-journal-table-generator-_v2.html When I have some time I'll work on a version 3 that recreates the new structure. It take a few weeks but I'll announce it when it's ready. Arlene - I agree! But I was never one for cones. Just don't like them. :~) mizfit - YES! and it does feel FANTASTIC!! Reply

    That is AWESOME that you were able to get back to the gym. Despite being sore and a bit apprehensive about returning to working out after a surgery, there is nothing like that first post-workout high. And noticing that you are still whole and in one piece! And I couldn't applaud you more for your response in "How Amazing--A Response" Reply

    I just came across this story on msnbc.com and thought of that person who left the comment the other day about wasting time or whatever http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25573436/ I just thought it was interesting - I've seen stories like this before but the timing with that other commenter... And btw - I GREATLY appreciate all that you do! Reply

    Hey, I like the new website design! Much better than your old one. I see a few of your posts have this journal point system on them. What do the points mean? Reply
