After a week with trying to work both with Quicken for Mac and Mint I am discouraged by both. I really liked Quicken for Windows but with trying to migrate my whole like to a Mac I have to find an answer. I am trying MoneyDance which was the runner up to Quicken for Mac and holds the number #2 spot in the awards list. I will be setting up this program today and let you know what I think. I have to apologize for not paying much attention to other blogs recently. I have been so caught up in learning the new world of computing that I have had very little time to actually read your posts. Hopefully it won’t be long until I am working the Mac the same way I worked the PC to point where everything just seems natural. It would be so much easier to just stay with PC and forget about Mac, but just because something is familiar doesn’t always mean that it’s better. And besides, it is fun to learn new things and expand the mind a bit.
Today is day number #3 of taking the product called Align for IBS and so far I have no problems with IBS. It seems that my lower GI is making changes for the better.
Yesterday my body was exhausted from all the yard work I did over the weekend, and to honest with you I am still feeling a bit achy today. I really enjoy the feeling as hard work is a part of the whole minimalist movement. When our minds and bodies become one with nature it creates a feeling deep inside that is so connected with the natural world that we become better human beings. If you just find a way to eat from nature and work and play in nature the rewards are significant. There is an aura of energy that surrounds all things natural that is the same aura that surrounds each of us. When these two combine there is no word to describe the intimacy.
My body weight seems to be creeping back up but my blood sugar is staying stable. As we are approaching Fall it will be difficult to maintain this weight as my body will naturally try to store more fat to get me through the cold winter. When it’s cold outside our bodies require additional energy just to maintain keeping our temperatures at 98.6 degrees. The way in which our bodies do this is to make sure that there is additional fat stored for emergency energy. The problem is that when we continually eat our bodies never get the chance to actually burn this fat and there we are in Spring running a gazillion miles on the treadmill. I will continue to practice intermittent fasting a few days per week to make sure that my body is at least accessing this stored fat for energy.
Blood Sugar- 98, Weight- 178.2
