How I Woke Up This Morning

Mark came in to act as my snooze alarm at 5:45am. Almost the first words out of his mouth were, "There have been multiple explosions in London's tube system and buses this morning."

I think most of my friends who live in the UK don't live in London, but I know you might very well have friends or relatives who do. I hope your friends and families are safe and accounted for. My prayers are very much with you all.

I think what worries me the most, aside from wondering whether my friends are all right, is that to my knowledge there was no hint of this before today--no increased threat alerts, no talk on the news of increased 'chatter' among terrorists, nothing.

This is really not the way I like to be reminded of Alastor Moody's motto.

The rehab assistant interview went okay. I actually didn't have sweaty palms, for once! It also helped that I wasn't sick as a dog and coughing all over the place.

There was one question that I didn't know the answer to, and one question in which I tried to be humorous; I don't know if that helped or hindered. Everything else, I answered straight. We'll see how it goes.

My doctor has told me she wants me to lose five pounds by August 3, so I started eating Lean Cuisine frozen dinners today in hopes that those will help me cut down on food cnsumption.

Wow! I had their Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, and it was delicious! What it lacked in thickness of the Alfredo sauce, it more than made up for in taste. I was very impressed! If the rest of the dinners taste this good, going on this Lean Cuisine diet will be a pleasure!

For those of you who have dieted with Lean Cuisine--what are your opinions of it? Does it actually help you lose weight, or is that all just advertising? The meal I ate was 270 calories, 50 of which were from fat.

I'll also start eating yogurt or cereal for breakfast as of tomorrow. The grocery store near me was selling Lucerne 8-ounce containers for 10/$3.00 today.
