Well, I thought I would be finished with my third Libby Fox novella by now. I did add a little over 1100 words to it the other night. I thought I would only have the love scene to go, but I realized I needed a scene to lead up to the love scene. I was really worrying about this novella being about 2000 words shorter than I wanted it to be, but with that extra scene added, I think it’s going to be okay. Plus, I think I need to flesh out some other things in the story. I’m looking forward to these two days off so I can really work on writing stuff!

For those of you that didn’t see my last post on weight loss and are interested in a good calorie counting app for your Droid (don’t know if it’s available for other operating systems), it’s just called Calorie Counter and it’s by FatSecret. It’s had in its database almost every food I’ve looked up. Mostly what it’s lacking is drinks, like the strawberry lemonade at O’Charley’s. But that has to have LOTS of calories anyway, so I opted for unsweetened tea. 🙂

Also, I was complaining the other day that I wasn’t going to be able to cook on Thanksgiving. But we’ve decided to have Thanksgiving on Friday, and both of my boys are coming with their wife/girlfriend. Yay!

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all! (Yes, I’m from the south.)

I found this awesome app for my Droid. It’s a calorie counter, and so far, it’s had in the database every food at every restaurant I’ve been to in the last week. It even had the soft pretzels filled with cheese that I had in my freezer. And the Pillsbury biscuit breakfasts I’ve had. It’s had every single food that I’ve eaten! It figures your recommended calories based on your height, current weight, gender, and activity level as well as how fast or slow you want to lose weight. It’s actually giving me more calories than I thought I should have, but I’ve lost weight even going over my recommended calories on some days. I lost two lbs. this week! I could have lost more if I had stuck to the right amount of calories. It also lets you track your weight and gives you a little graph to see your progress. Even though it mostly keeps up with the calories you’re supposed to have and what you have left, it also tracks how many carbs, proteins, fats, etc. that you’ve consumed. It also tracks your exercise, but…ahem…I haven’t needed that feature yet…. Oh, did I mention this app was free?
