    • I am starting a grateful challenge. Everyday this month I will be taking a picture of something I am thankful for. I plan on posting to my FB but I will post here as well. Its just a fun challenge and gives me an excuse to play with my digital camera Maybe I will make a collage and hang in in my house. I dunno.. anyone want to join me?

      • I like it! Probably won't post as I am technologically challenged, I will just leave them on my phone.

        I have also thought about taking a photo of everything I eat so I don't have to write it down but can still keep track. Also if I take the photo before I eat it that may slow me down before I put something I really shouldn't into my mouth.

        Our candy doesn't get opened until the first trick or treater knocks on the door, then all the leftover goes to DH's work.

        • Karin - I'm in! What a great idea. [Are you locked down on FB? I might have to find you]

          My LE "habit" for the next 2 weeks is to record our food intake (this does NOT mean counting calories or getting all obsessive - it's a research tool). For me, this has meant taking pictures of my food. Can't tell you how much it helps...if I REALLY want that little cake ball, I have to take a picture. If I'm going to have another, means I need to take a picture. Makes me think before I go into mindless eating. I also think - do I have enough veggies on that plate?

          We skipped the candy. We got laser finger lights (really cool, if I do say so myself and glow sticks. I hope they're a success. Cheaper than the candy I used to buy!!!!

          Karin - how goes the recovery?

          • I wanted to do glow sticks, never heard of finger lights, but DH said he would take the candy away and since he is the one who will be handing it out, I let it go.

            Ruth you have inspired me I will begin to take photos of everything I eat.

            • I love the idea of photographing what you eat. It can give you perspective on portions too. I think for the most part people are visual, so this makes sense.

              I am feeling better physically since surgery. However, the shifting of hormones is interesting. Random headaches, flushing, flashing etc. I am back to work on the 8th.

              I am on facebook. I will send you a message Ruth so we can find each other. I have Paula!

                  • DH will unlock my security tonight, and then I'll PM you with my info. Since we're all locked up, I can't make it work [And, without DH, I don't know how to change my security settings]

                    • Well.. the candy stash is done. I ran out and dd supplemented her own stash because she wanted to give stuff out. Her grandma is buying he replacement candy. We had @ 80 tricker treaters.

                      I felt better today except for a horrid headache all day. I decided to grill dinner and make apple pie on the grill.. yum!!

                      • Yum on the grilled apple pie!

                        We had 150 kiddos in an hour and a half. We ran out by 7:30. I'm glad there was no candy to tempt me!

                          • We have a ton of candy for the boys because we bought all our little man's faves when we thought we would TOT at home. We never get kids at our house.

                            • I am taking photos of my food today. I will post them all after dinner. However, I am also picturing 30 days of thankfulness. Here is day 1 (also on FB):

                              I am thankful for books. Through them I meet the most interesting characters, visit exotic places and learn about the world around me, the people around me and about myself.
