I drink coffee too, but have not been able to quit snacking. Did you ever snack? If yes, how did you manage to get out of the habit?

FOR NELL or anyone else that does not snack...share your secret, please

It varies from time to time...and time of day . In the afternoon right now my go to snack is a mini bag of popcorn...100 calories.

In the evening during tv time I like a serving of a cinnamon flavored cereal...right now it is Kroger Cinnamon swirl. I eat it dry like a person would nuts or popcorn.

What is your favorite healthy snack?

For workday afternoon snack, I prepare five snack bags, one for each day. They contain:
3 walnut halves, 6 almonds, and a scant tablespoon each of craisins (dried cranberries) and dried cherries. I really look forward to it!
(If I just had open bags of these four items in my desk, I'm sure I'd overeat. So the prep time pays off.)

I loved the "Golden Rule" that was on our childhood rulers back in the 50s. It's as important today as it was back then:
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

How is your sleep? Are you a sound sleeper or do you toss and turn or up during the night?

Very sporadic: one night i will sleep soundly and the next i may be up 10-15 times and other times I fall asleep about midnight but then awaken at 1:30 or2 and stay awake until 5AM.Sometimes all the above occur with or without a sleeping aid.
