    Total flattery, but it made me feel good.
    As you are taking it as a compliment I suppose it's a shop with large sizes only?
    Looking forward to read your walking story !

    Oh, and what are SAT's? Is it a (big) test?

    These Birkenstocks are made for walking.

    My honey asked me if I wanted to join him at Arbor Hills, a local nature preserve/park. He rode his bike on the dirt trails, and Eldest and I walked the dogs on the concrete path that winds through the natural area. So we had lots of trees and fields around us, plenty of hills and dips, the sights and sounds of animals. And, it was an 80 minute walk! Double 'and' : it was too much for our dachshunds, so I did part of it carrying a 15-pound weight. Triple 'and': there were even a couple of sprints when the dogs saw rabbits, squirrels, or toddlers.

    Yay! My walking challenge met and exceeded for the day!

    No peckerheads or medication problems at my house for the SAT, though we did have a frantic search for #2 pencils. There WAS one vocabulary question she is sure she got right, because she remembered hearing it on a SAT-prep CD of songs my son used to play, four years ago!

    Candy- the SAT (along with the ACT) is the BIG test for college admissions. Lots of schools use it as part of their admissions procedure. It can also set you up for National Merit Scholarships. That's how Eldest went to school, and we are hoping for similar results for Middlest. She did well on her first round, but she is hoping to improve her math scores.

    Coll- I am definitely not too big for those clothes (still buy all my bras there) but it is nice to think I am maybe back to the point of 'carrying it well'.

    Like your menu!

    You do know that whole "drink 8 cups of water" is a crock, right? There is not a single study supporting it. The initial assertion was made in a medical textbook in the 40s (no justification given) and was followed up by the statement that of course, much of this could come from the moisture in solid foods. And it has acquired the weight of urban myth ever since, embellished from the original statement to tell us we need 8 cups of water ON TOP of all other liquids and foods. *sigh*

    Bottom line, water is good, and we should drink enough of it to satisfy our thirst. How much that is depends on our size and weight and activity and what else we've been eating and drinking and what the temperature and humidity are... In other words, it's a moving target, but your very well-designed body will let you know when it's time for more. No need for tracking or obsessing or meeting quotas. There. One less thing to worry about in your day.

    I have found that I feel MUCH better when I drink lots of water.
    And sadly, thirst is not always the best indicator for my body. I think it may be for the same reasons that I was always 'hungry' when I ate SAD: my body was messed up, and didn't know what was what any more.
    I like to track so I know I am getting what I have found I need- it's not a worry for me.
    I have finally gotten to the point when I know if I have had too many carbs (for me) at a meal: I feel off. Maybe someday I will get to that point with water, too.

    They told me the same thing once when I went bra shopping there a couple of years back. They had a buy one get one free bra sale, so my sister-in-law and I went. Sure enough, I fit into some of their bras, but the selection was minimal. I guess a 36 D (at that time) doesn't qualify as "plus sized".

    You go, girl! If you have found that generous water-drinking works well for you, go with it! As long as you are not seeing signs of mineral depletion, you are not overdoing it. I was just trying to relieve you of a possible source of stress, but if that's not what it is, great!

    You are my inspiration to drink more water! I'm just not a drinker, but I feel better when I do, and it certainly aids the digestion. Unless I am really, really thirsty, I just don't drink. The upside of this is that I didn't have a soda/diet soda habit to break when I went primal.

    Hey, I just walked for two hours!

    We end up drinking lots of water here because it gets very dry and hot during the summer. Add being on the flight line and working outdoors, we kind of need it. Even just standing out there for a few minutes can cause you to sweat quite a bit. However, the winter time doesn't seem to be that bad. It's still just as dry, but you don't sweat as much.

    Judg-No mineral depletion that I can tell. I do alternate plain water with water that has lemon juice and salt added to it, for electrolytes. It took some getting used to, but now I LOVE it!
    Siobhan-Two hours of walking! Wow! I'll have to go over to your journal and see what you were doing. Beautiful Maine sights?
    Alessandra-Sometimes in Texas it seems like you can sweat it out quicker than you can take it in. I find with the humidity in our area, it can be very deceptive, because you can FEEL cool, but BE parched.
