I really like LiveStrong. They've got a Daily Plate that has a great database and a super easy iPhone app too.

1st day back at work full time after a summer off, My DH thought that it might be nice to set his alarm for 5am and then let it go off for an hour and then decide he doesn't need to be there as early as he thought. I think I may kill him now! lol
At least I planned ahead and have some sausage kale soup ready for tonight for dinner and just need to finish slow cooking some carnitas up for Tuesday. It was nice to wake up with a flat stomach and pants that fit looser. Trying to convince myself to eat something for breakfast so I won't be tempted by whatever carb stuff they have at work. I made a big breakfast for my kiddos and woke them up so they can get back on schedule to start next week.
about 3 weeks ago i started taking a chinese herb called dong quai, also known as the "female ginseng." after trying various cw approaches to dealing with age-appropriate hormonal changes and an angry uterus i fired my doctor and fired up some serious google-fu. dong quai seemed the herb most compatible to alleviate mys symptoms.
i was prepared to wait months to see results. within days, the cramping was gone and the bloating/swelling much better. yeah for me.
but the unexpected result is that my hair is thicker and longer than it has been in years! it's curly so tends to break on the ends right about when it hits my shoulders. it has only gotten "that" long for decades, no matter how long i go between haircuts or how carefully i deal with it.
within a week of taking this supp i could feel the change and now my hair actually feels heavy, lol.
just did some googling and this is a traditional indian and asian supp for female hair loss! well then.
a happy coincidence for sure.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

Sorry for the babbling... I tend to do that... but anyway - If you don't have an addictive personality, go ahead and count Calories. But, ask yourself why you need to in the first place before you get into it.

Weight does NOT equal health -- ditch the scale, don't be a slave to it!
I count - but I'm not completely anal about it. I do it to keep myself honest about exactly what I'm putting in my mouth. I also don't count every single day. I tend to eat about the same amount of food every day.
