    I've been following my own advice - the Sugar Dragon was visiting me way too often and I felt a little out of control. I've been eating larger meals than normal and if I really, really feel hungry something with protein and fat. I think I have a tendency to subconsciously hold back when I am eating a real meal in order to justify a sugar treat later on.

    Have already had my swim this morning! It feels good to swim very early. I have some brussels sprouts roasting in the oven and some very thin steaks ready to broil.

    Brussel sprouts. Yummy! I don't know why, but in our neck of the woods, it is about impossible to get organic ones. Sounds like a good meal. Fun to think of you swimming early. For some reason, it makes me think of running along the beach early in the morning. Cold sea air and seagulls and such. I better get some beach time in before the tourists descend in full force. It's okay though. My favorite time at the beach is in the winter.

    I have trouble getting myself motivated to swim early because of my perception of cold - it's weird, but if I'm not warm at home, I can't get up the initiative to go to the pool, which is ridiculous. The pool is always the same temp! I'm just strange. OTOH I have no trouble making myself go for a walk or a hike when it is cold.

    Just spent some time rooting around in storage and looking at some things that have been packed away. I need to rotate my knick knacks. Pack away the stuff I have around and get out some different things. Oboe loved the storage area, a long area under the eaves. I had to haul him out twice and then he pawed at the door for some time. Cats!

    Maybe the solution is to swim later at night then? When you've had a full day and your body has warmed up. I used to take a nap after work then go to the 10pm swim at a local swimplex.

    Alas, the pool closes at 7 PM. Also, it is full of kids at night. Living in a small community does have its limitations! But we are lucky to have such a nice brand-new pool. The next nearest pool is about an hour away, and it is quite old. I was trying to go before I went to work, but it was too frustrating with the kids all over, jumping into my lane (super dangerous), whistles blowing, loud music. I'm just an old fart, I guess.

    Just ate a sweet potato. I can't believe I used to put sugar on them. They are so sweet already.

    I don't blame you for not wanting to swim when its full of kids.......... they do tend to think everyone should get out of their way! And the sweet potato + sugar thing ............ yup - I used to put brown sugar and cinnamon on mine! Now - just buttah! yums!

    Kids are pretty good with cinnamon, too!

    This reminds me of a shirt Littlest has. It states, 'I love Mormons' on it, and every time she wears it, I can't help but mentally add 'with gravy' to it.

    Kids with cinnamon...mmmmm...definitely primal!

    Despite not wanting to actually be at the pool at the same time, I am very glad the kids and the teenagers have the pool and the Y available to them. If it weren't for the Y, those kids wouldn't have anywhere else to go. They'd be at home, sadly for many of them not a safe or healthy environment, or vegged out in front of a TV or a video game, or drinking beer and smoking pot in the woods. This doesn't stop me from wishing the Y had an adults-only pool. But you only get facilities like that in much larger communities, and at a much greater cost. I actually save money going to the Y. I calculated it - since I shower there most of the time, the hot water I use costs more than my membership, which is subsidized by my employer. When I do shower at home, it's just a quick rinse. Amazing, really!
