melaniedramatic Some people might just want to make wise food choices everyday. Time and time again I prove I'm not that person...yet. If I set myself up, I succeed. So Sunday is my lunch prep day. #thedanielplan #foodisfuel 1w
  •   sewyourownway I have a friend that just started the Daniel plan. I have no idea what it includes (or doesn’t), but she said it's pretty easy to stick to. 1w
  •   eyreamos Most definitely. We do once a month cooking. 1w
  •   sew_joyful Sounds like you are really enjoying this! So proud of you! 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @lalinsocal if I don't have a plan, I usually end up being ravenous and over eating. Just knowing I have pre- planned helps so much! 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @sewyourownway I like that it addresses more than just food. spiritual, fitness, friendship, etc. so some people may need to focus on other areas to get healthy. 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @sew_joyful thank you! 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @eyreamos I've always been fairly good at planning the week for family dinners. But my breakfast and lunch is much less planned. And I do this awful thing were I starve myself then end up way over eating. It's wrecked my hormones. 1w
  •   aprairiesunrise I need to look into this plan! It sounds like just what we need in this new chapter of our lives with Jake's career change, working on buying our first home, & wanting to raise a healthy Ruby. :-) 1w

melaniedramatic A family of javelina came right by our back yard today. There were over a dozen of them. Is it a herd? A pack? A gang? #arizona #tucson #javelina 1w
  •   sewyourownway I've never heard of a javelina. Is it a kind of wild pig? 1w
  •   auntiepami Where do you live? We had those stinkers near Kingsville (tx) 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @sewyourownway yes sorta. It's in the peccary family. Which I think is American were as pigs are European?!?! 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @auntiepami they do stink! We're north of Tucson. 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @lisalisaquiltjam okay! A herd. (Though I like the idea of a gang. ) they are funky. I wish I had gotten my phone sooner to get a pic of the little itty bitty babies. Soooo tiny. 1w
  •   auntiepami @melaniedramatic and they can be dangerous. I like Tucson, any good quilt shops? Haha I know there must be at least one. 1w
  •   melaniedramatic @auntiepami yes. We have one that is good and two that are alright sometimes. I've come across them running before and the mama was not to happy. She chased me a little ways to make sure I wasn't going the same way as her baby. 1w
  •   barij I do not enjoy seeing those when out running. 1w

melaniedramatic I'm really looking forward to lunch tomorrow. #thedanielplan #foodisfuel 2w
  •   melaniedramatic @kgculliney I haven't found a group. I'd love to. In the mean time I'm reading the book and journaling. 2w
  •   kgculliney I'm very interested. How long have you been doing it? 2w
  •   kennaquilts Do you have a mandoline? It will make slicing it easier 2w
  •   sweetpeapaisley I started the Daniel Plan. Would love to join a group! 2w
  •   pinprickedfingers It's like I've always been looking for this approach. I'm going to start the Daniel Plan! 2w
  •   melaniedramatic @kennaquilts yes. I used one. The issue was the part with seeds just fell out (because it wasn't strong enough to support it?!?!) 2w
  •   kennaquilts You could mandolin around the cuke until you got to the heart and then cube the seeded part and eat it separately. 2w
  •   melaniedramatic @kennaquilts good idea. I'm gonna try that next time. 2w
