    I am up before everyone else this morning, even the dogs, so I am lying in bed and reading articles, blogs, etc. This is my four-day work week, which is never my absolute favorite, especially since I don't really know what is going to happen. The pandemic has taught me a lot about how to remain flex... Read more

    I started my Sunday with a 10 mile ride. That is the longest I've ridden since I got this new bike, and it is not easy to handle hills and such with just a one-speed cruiser. If I ride at least three times a week, I can upgrade my bike around my birthday in September. Woohoo!!! I can't explain ho... Read more

    Interesting how some have chosen to censor those with whom they disagree rather than engage in legitimate debate. The actions of Google, Facebook, and Twitter disturb me. Why are we allowing them to edit content, rather than just be a platform for information sharing? ... Read more

    Hi, Sparkpeeps. I got up with my wife this morning to have coffee at 5:45. She makes me a cup of coffee every single morning exactly the way I like it. She is the best! Since I rejoined Sparkpeople, I always start my day by logging my morning coffee and then planning out my food for the rest of t... Read more

    Hi, Sparkworld. I am currently sitting on my couch with two napping dogs and a kitten, watching Meru on Prime. I accidentally slept on the couch last night after turning in an assignment at the absolute last second before it was due. Today I am really tired. I did ride 4.71 miles this morning a... Read more

  • Rinsing canned beans

    7/24/2020 11:17:47 PM, by PASTAFARIAN

    Since discovering that I have salt-sensitive high blood pressure, I've switched to using dried beans which have no sodium. However, I still have some canned beans left in my pantry. Now I might use them, having recently read about tests to measure the amount of sodium removed by rinsing canned beans... Read more

    7/23/2020 7:24:56 PM, by MYRRH924

    Work was okay today. I picked up my medicine. Not having it the last two days may have been part of the reason for my emotional eating. My depression is well controlled as long as I have my meds. If I don't, I notice irritability, anxiety, and a tendency to emotionally overeat. Every day is a ne... Read more
