Storm Trooper encounter!
I attempted to take a pic with one the last time I was there.  The StormTrooper ended up taking a selfie with my phone. - Woozle  19.8 #6243 7:36PM

Day 2 at the park started with breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen. I'm SO not used to eating real food (I didn't even eat that much!). Now I'm back in the room with a sore stomach....gonna take it ez from now on!
Aw cute!!  So sorry you had a little tummy upset.  I know how that goes.  Feel better!  (Oh, and ginger is supposed to help a queasy tummy, so you might try a little ginger ale if you can find it anywhere.  I don't know if it's really the ginger or just the bubbles, but it seems to help me).  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 8:10PM

Has anyone ever heard of or tried the Paleo diet?  It seems good, only I don't cook so I'm not sure how I'd do on it.  Anyone have any luck with it?
I've looked into it--it seems like the basic premise makes sense to me (eat clean foods and avoid processed, sugary, refined stuff because we aren't evolutionarily adapted to handle the Standard American Diet).  I'd say my husband and I eat "Paleoish" pretty often, and I do feel better when I reduce the junk.  I am reluctant to fully follow any diet 100% though.  It did look like a lot of food prep to me, but I think you can follow the diet without having to constantly make full meals.  It's an interesting concept--maybe ask your doctor what he/she thinks?  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 8:07AM
I was thinking the same as you.  Pretty much common sense.  But following it to the letter long-term would be very difficult, if not impossible I think.  No breads or pasta ever?  I have friends who just started on it.  Not thinking that it'll last, but as long as they just give up processed foods, sugar and all the dairy, they'll probably lose a lot.  I'm now planning on staying with Jenny until the end of the year.  Not 3 meals a day, but at least a presence.  That's what I never did in the past.  I'd hit my goal and then stop cold turkey! - msdizmaui  597.3 #283 2:52PM
Yeah, I agree.  Eating clean and balanced meals most, but not 100%, of the time works best for me.  I mean, my favorite chain restaurant is the Olive Garden, lol 😂 There's no way I could just give up all my favorite foods forever unless I had a health issue that made it necessary or I was an actress getting paid millions to look a certain way.  Glad that Jenny is working well and that you decided to stay with it for maintenance purposes.  I think that's a really good idea!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 3:50PM
Hi ladies! You can say I follow a paleo diet. I'm 7 months of no bread, pasta, sugar and dairy. I love it. I think sugar was the hardest. You have withdraw and act like a huge b****. It's true! Pasta wasn't as hard as I thought. I use to have pasta 4-5 times a week so yes it was a bit tough at first but I think if you think long term it's totally worth it. My love handles are gone. If you do some research you find that pasta and bread stick to midsection and that can be very dangerous. Once in awhile I'll eat tortillas but it's rare. What I did is I have 1/2 cup of brown rice. Not everyday but sometime. If you love pasta which I do, I found brown rice pasta. It's seriously delicious or as I've seen I want to buy spinach pssta👍. Dairy wasn't tough either. I drink almond either and no longer have any gas or bloated ever.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  662.5 #241 12:08PM
I love the food I eat. It really changes your perspective of food. Before I'd eat for the great flavor but had ton of fat that isn't good for your body. I eat to give my body energy and treat myself on the weekend with one something  yummy like pasta at a resturaunt or sushi and ond treat. I look forward to it. I see it as work hard on the weekday and have fun on the weekend. My belly fat has gone down too. I do eat Greek yogurt for that (the only dairy) and drink lots of green tea. Green tea and Greek yogurt (no sugar) helps with the belly fat.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  662.5 #241 12:13PM
I take my health more serious especially since my dad two weeks ago had a triple bypass surgery. It's really scary. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  662.5 #241 12:14PM
Oh and I don't feel sluggish. - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  662.5 #241 12:15PM
Sounds like you've got it down!  My friend is experimenting with Almond flour (to bread things) and already is into the spaghetti squash and zucchini "pasta".  I like the idea of a treat day.  I'll probably go back to that (and I find that when you're good all week, you really don't want to "blow" it like you thought that you would).  Only drawback to Paleo for me...I don't cook!  Although I guess that I could live on roasted veggies (which I LOVE) and ground turkey patties!   - msdizmaui  597.3 #283 2:45PM
You sound like my husband and I!  Haha, we do pretty much the same things, but occasionally go out to eat or have a treat.  Bread is hard to give up completely, but we don't eat much of it any more.  We buy only Greek yogurt, no cow milk, etc.  We do eat string cheese and feta occasionally, though, and occasionally, I get cream for coffee (though I really shouldn't).  We are very strict during Lent (no alcohol, sugar, or white starches), but relax a little more during the year.  You are so disciplined!  I feel great during Lent, and always consider sticking to it for longer, but I eventually cave, lol 😂  I figure I do a good job 95% of the time, and that other 5% does make me happy.  Someday I might get more strict.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 5:15PM

The storms are strengthening instead of weakening!  Maui will miss a direct hit, but I'm still freaked out (especially since there are 2 of them).  Not sure the puzzle is going to be enough...lol! - msdizmaui  597.3 #283 11:07PM

I need words of encouragement.  We have not 1 but 2 hurricanes approaching the Islands and I'm feeling all anxious about things.  Add that with having to go to unemployment meetings and a conference with my mom's doctors and it's the perfect storm for eating what I shouldn't.  I'm trying to keep busy, but I find myself pacing....(and lingering over the 4 boxes of granola bars I boug  More...
Yikes, that sounds scary! Hopefully, the storm won't be too severe.  Hang in there,  friend! ((Hugs)) - Fanatic4Disney  267.3 #1048 10:34PM
I saw that on the news!  I lived in Kona for a short while and I was always slightly nervous about the potential of a big storm coming through, so I can understand the feelings of anxiety.  Hoping that these both miss the islands by hundreds of miles and that your meetings go well! And, don't blow it on something like granola bars--totally not worth it after you've worked so hard and been so successful!  Maybe go out and get your emergency supplies, then indulge a craving (so that you don't go overboard later) and get yourself a small treat.  Like one candy bar or a single pastry or something.  You can do this!   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 11:38PM
The Big Island is going to get hit hard.  I hope everybody makes it through ok!  Back to back hurricanes is bazaar (although I think the issue of how the storm will impact the eruption and vice versa is fascinating!). - msdizmaui  597.3 #283 11:01PM
Yes, I've been reading the newspaper articles!  So scary!  Stay safe and keep us updated if possible.  I'll be thinking of you all!   My little condo was pretty much right on the water--I hope it's going to be ok. - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 7:40AM

It was a total non-event for us!  Some parts of Maui got hit, but I didn't even get rain!  It was a weird week.  I spent the first half preparing (which gave me a purpose in life) and then when no storm, I just sat around and felt weird.  Hard to explain.  But of course I'm glad that everyone is okay. - msdizmaui  597.3 #283 4:24PM

I've decided that browsing MW while watching TV while listening to update music is the best way to tolerate my elliptical!
Yes, I definitely need to be entertained when I'm using the cardio machines!  I used to love reading a book and listening to Pandora on the elliptical--I think I read most of Gone With the Wind one winter while exercising.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 3:29PM

Yesterday I had an interview and hadn't thought out the outfit.  My old black "work" pants swam on me, so today I went through the "bag of many sizes" and redid my closet. I was exhausted after trying on everything (counts as exercise, right?)
How did the interview go?  Congrats on the new size. :) - Mrs.mouse  515.7 #342 7:44AM
It went good I guess.  I'm trying not to second guess them anymore.  If I get too excited, I never hear back!   I am glad to have cleaned out my closet...cranked up the A/C and just got it done! (trying on jeans is not my favorite thing!). - msdizmaui  597.3 #283 7:44PM

Had a 2nd interview yesterday.  The job looks okay, but I don't think that the pay will be worth driving that far (it's in Lahaina - I'd be buying gas every week which would be over $200 a month!).  Also, one of the employees would be real fun to work with...she introduced herself to me by saying 'I'm the mean one that every one says is the bitch".  All righty then..... - msdizmaui  597.3 #283 8:13PM
Oh wow, way to make a first impression, lol.  Well, see how it plays out.  Gas is so expensive that you definitely have to consider how far you're driving.  You almost have to ask yourself "would this be something I would consider if they offered me $200 per month less? Could I live a happy life on that?"   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  517.3 #338 10:18PM
