So those damn cookies that I ate in the afternoon yesterday took a tole on my blood sugar this morning and I am kicking myself in the ass for it. I didn’t work out yesterday and there was absolutely no need to eat them, but there they stood on the counter at work staring me in the face. I turned away several times knowing that I was not hungry but it didn’t take long for the cookie monster in me to come and screaming “Cookie”. Other than this the fasting went well and all other meals were healthy and eaten in proportion. Lunch was pork and broccoli and dinner was steak, peppers, tomatoes and a half of a small baked potato. I am sure that without the cookies the potato wouldn’t haven’t taken me into sugar overload. Even with this my weight dropped slightly letting me know that the fast is working, but I wonder if it would have dropped that much more if I hadn’t eaten those damn cookies.
I had time yesterday to start playing with my new Macbook Pro although I ran into a problem already I am still happy overall with the ease of use of the Mac. Setting things up was pretty easy as I already had an Icloud account with my Iphone and setting up email was a breeze. I ran into problems when I purchased Quicken for Mac at a cost of 74.99. I figured that I could just migrate my accounts from my Quicken files on my PC right into the Mac. It didn’t work out that way as I nothing matched and numbers were totally off. I ended up setting it up manually with all of my accounts which went smooth until I tried to set up my Trowe Price investment accounts. No matter what I did after several tries worked. It couldn’t connect. So I googled it and found out that Trowe Price would not pay Intuit the fee amount to make the connection on Mac. I really don’t understand this because it works fine on Intuit’s PC version of Quicken. So I ended up setting up everything in Mint. The funny thing is that Mint is also Intuit, but it worked just fine. Mint is free and if I would have done my homework I could have saved $75.00. Oh well, lessons to be learned.
