I can't believe I did not sit down at my computer all day yesterday. Consequence is I blew my spark streak for logging in LOL kind of bummed about that, but on the flip side, I didn't need my computer. There was a time in my life I would have gone crazy if I didn't get on my computer daily. I would be so caught up in virtual chat rooms that I would waste my day entirely. My life revolved around those chat rooms. Not very healthy. Looking back I realize I missed out on a lot of my life because of that addiction. I wish I could go back and get that time. I know it was an escape, life back then was very hard, I had a lot of issues going on with getting divorced and custody battles, money was tight, I had no idea what I was doing. It was a way to distance myself from the real world. I regret that now. I missed out on a lot of fun with my son during those times. I am trying to not do that with my daughter.My son turned out fantastic though despite all of it.

OK so today I am thinking I need a bit of a rest day. My knee feels better, but I was over compensating with the other leg, so now that ankle/feet is aching LOL we did a lot of walking at Epcot yesterday. Tracker said over 13,000 steps. I feel it today. So just going to take it easy today since back to work tomorrow. I got a free roasted chicken I need to do something with so I am thinking pulled and then tossed in BBQ sauce per my son's suggestion LOL He never does ask for much so when he does he gets it. Just need to think of some healthy sides too make with it. So off to the recipes LOL

    I was the same way with the chat rooms when I was younger. A couple of my friends even commented that they felt like they'd "lost me to the internet". I spent SO much time chatting. On the plus side, I am still in touch with some of my chat friends from 20+ years ago- just not nearly as regular of a basis.

    I hope your feet/knee/ankle feel better soon! :)

    Broccoli slaw is a god side dish as is a big green salad. I've made some very tasty Mexican food using roasted chicken. Yum! Enjoy!

    A day away from all the gadgets and technology is just what you need sometimes. I enjoy Sparkle but some days don’t have the time to do more than log in my, food, water and exercise. They are needed the others are nice but extra if I can spare time.

    computers, telephones and gadgets can eat up a lot of time. That's why i spend a lot of time playing with my granddaughter than on computer or cell phone, much more enjoyable. Lol
