    • So I thought I'd try the 21 Day thing. Except I haven't finished reading the book...
      What to do? What to do??

      I know what my weaknesses are. Wine. Sugar.
      So I'm going to start with a 21 day No Wine No Sugar.
      I am allowing myself to have a tiny bite off my Artisan, locally roasted and ground 90% chocolate bar if I NEED it

      Yesterday was Day 1.
      I gave myself a sticker in my day planner

      So far it looks like I'm going to be able to give myself one tonight too!

      • That sounds like a good plan for you. As I recall, you did not have a good experience with the W30 strictness, mainly because you felt like you COULD NOT have any of those "not allowed" things, and consequently felt extremely deprived by the idea of all that. By deciding to allow the bite of chocolate when REALLY needed, it shouldn't cause that same stress. And because you can, if you want, you might just have more success with not having it. If that makes any sense at all .

        And so what if you haven't finished the 21 day book yet? Just keep reading!

        Leave it to a teacher to use stickers in your planner for a reward, haha.

              That's correct, W30 messed with my mind.
              It makes perfect sense to me. I could have it if I really wanted/needed it, so I probably won't

              • Last night I dreamed about buying candy.
                Really.
                And then in my dream I realized that I was doing a 21 Day No Wine No Candy
                And I didn't know what to do with my bag of gummy worms...

                • This morning I woke up hungry.

                  So I fried an egg while I was drinking my Chai with whipping cream.
                  I sat down with my egg. Poked the yolk and went to take a bite and lost my appetite.
                  I tried a bite and then I dumped the egg in the compost.

                  I wasn't hungry again till 1:30.

                    • I took Surfer Son the medical travel clinic in preparation for his Peru trip on the 20th.

                      IF he goes into any other country he HAS to have the Yellow Fever vac.
                      If he goes in the rain forest, he should have Malaria pills and the Yellow Fever vac.
                      He's not sure what to do.

                      If he takes pills for the whole trip, that's 80 pills. I don't know what that does to your body.
                      I guess he could take them for when he would be in Malaria areas.
                      I'd also prefer that he not get a vaccine if he doesn't need it.
                      But I don't want him getting Yellow Fever or Malaria either...

                      • Several ways, depending on my time

                        A pre-made Chai bag
                        A pre-made Chai loose mix from a tea store
                        or if I have time, from scratch:
                        tea bags, cinnamon stick, cardamom pods, star ansie, peppercorns, ginger root, nutmeg...umm, I think that's all. I gotta check my spice cupboard to be sure Anyway, combine and boil in a pot. Add cream and honey to cup.

                        Although I'm not doing honey for 18 more days...

                        • For Surfer son, I'd personally get them both. Of course, as a nurse, I've been fully vaccinated and so have my kids (though I'm still on the fence about gardasil for teen boys).

                          I've had the Yellow Fever vaccine several times over my military career as a requirement, it is good for 10 years, and is definitely needed for cross border travel from areas where the disease is endemic. Can't be given to people with an egg allergy. And there is a period of a week or 2 from when the vaccine is administered before it becomes effective, don't remember offhand exactly how long. After effects are localized soreness and redness, and potentially but infrequently feeling a bit under the weather for a couple of days, but the last time I had it I had no issues.

                          I also took Malaria prophylaxis the whole duration I was in Haiti 3 years ago. I'd recommend it unless he is only going to be in the cities and highly populated areas, otherwise, risk increases when going out into nature and obviously the jungle areas, especially if he is staying in rural places. There are several options, I used Malarone, which has fewer side effects than many of the others. One pill daily. Some people had GI upset, but it was better when taken with food. The only thing I noted was unusually vivid dreams, often of a racy nature. But then again, was the content more related to the fact that I was away from home for 2 months?

                          Your call, but that's my personal 2 cents worth. Oh, perhaps a nickle, as the penny is to be no longer.

                          • Thanks Greensprout.

                            I think you are right.
                            He thinks they might be in the Yellow Fever/Malaria area for about 2 weeks, but they really have no plans.

                            I think he should have the Yellow Fever, just in case their travel plans change.

                            I guess we are debating if he should just take the Malaria pills when he's heading north to the Malaria prone areas (and for the following week after they leave) instead of taking them for the full 80 days.

                              Kiya kitty just started!

                              One's going in for her spay tomorrow, the other is going on Tuesday.
                              I guess Orbie's going 1st.
