300 calories actually sounds pretty good for a smoothie. Those things are sometimes upwards of 600 calories. And chocolate bars are often over 700 calories. So a 300-calorie treat doesn't sound to bad to me. The part that does sound bad though is the mint. I've never been a huge mint fan--I tend to like it in savory dishes (and in mojitos ) more than in desserts --and I really don't like the combination of mint and chocolate.

Today is going to be tough. I have a lunch meeting and will have to be off-plan for it (unfortunately, there's no way I can bring my own food). It will be a buffet and I should be able to make some okay choices, but it is all going to have more oil and more sugar than I normally eat. I don't think lunch will be too high in calories, but the extra sugar is likely to make me want to eat everything in the house when I get home. Plus, already I'm starting to have the "well, I was off-plan for lunch, might as well eat whatever I want" thoughts and I haven't even had lunch yet. And I'm not working out until 7 PM, so I can't even just take myself over to the gym and work out for an hour or so to quell the cravings. I can tell I will be white-knuckling it all afternoon (either that, or eating a lot of stuff I shouldn't).

Dagmar.. try this... go to user control panel. choose edit profile. scroll down and it has a spot for adding your diet blog. I'm assuming you set one up on 3FC, right?

probably just type dagmar into the blank and that should work. It'll show up under your avatar as a link, like mine.

Hope that helps!

Ask in the announcements and forum help threads, Dagmar. Someone will know how. Enquiring minds want to see it!

Thumbs up I think I did it!

Et voila - mon blog - NOT! I just can't seem to figure this out. I can navigate to my bolg and sign in, see it and change it, and I had someone comment in it when I first set it up. Now the name of my blog is no longer displaying on the blogs list.

I am lost in blogspace!

that's what I hate about DIY internet stuff. If I follow all the directions and something goes wrong I can't backtrack and fix it 'cause I didn't know what I was doing in the first place. And there is no tech support person to talk it through with either.

Morning Dagmar!

Hi everybody. One more shift and I'm off for two days in a row. Have I mentioned lately that we need nurses in rural Ontario?

Good morning everyone. It's raining here I know I shouldn't complain about our weather but yuck!

Allison-hope you have a great visit with your mother and she continues to improve. Happy birthday to her.

Dagmar-I found your blog. Can't wait to read it.

Not much going on here. Still working lots of overtime. The tennis season is starting up (at the high school level for my son) so that will take up a lot of my time. I don't mind though. My son is a senior so this is the last year and then we will be empty nesters with alot of free time we won't know how to act!

I was up 1 lb. this week but totally deserved so I will get that off by my next weigh in.

Ok, gotta run. It's basically my only day off (and I have to go to sleep by 6 pm to get some rest for work at midnight) and I have a few things I need to do (exercise, laundry, grocery shopping) but I'm feeling a little lazy

Talk to you later. Jane

I was taking what should have been a 40 minute flight from Boston to NYC this morning... should have been in by 7 AM. Instead, I was on the plane at 6, but due to crazy delays and whatnot, didn't get back till 2:30 PM! The weather is absolutely horrendous in the Northeast.

Dagmar, I read through your blog and love it so far - will be making more comments on the actual posts

HI there
Thanks for asking!
This week I plan on walking nearby trails and now that a snowstorm has struck- I am shoveling snow and clearing a path. Other than this I am hosting a tea party for my aunts and cousins on Sunday.
diet-wise - make really good choices and trying out a couple of recipes I found in another area of this site.
