FitBit Dreams

One of the first nights that I wore my Fitbit to bed, I had a weird dream about it.  In my dream, your Fitbit would video tape what you were doing in your sleep so you had a clear picture of why you weren't getting adequate sleep.  Literally.

I hooked my Fitbit up to my computer and the video began.  I started out in my bed and then everything got crazy!  Next thing I knew, I was at a night club and I was dancing on a bar with a cocktail in my hand.  What the heck?  This is why beyond sleep walking!

Based on my Fitbit sleep tracking, I'm not hitting the bars but I'm super restless.  Tossing and turning all night long.

Anyone have ideas for how to get better sleep?  Maybe I should start wearing my ear plugs again.

Hide My Nuts

I love raw macadamia nuts.  They are ridiculously expensive and very high in fat and calories, but I love them so much I would probably give up chocolate for them!  The good news is that they are not all bad.  They are high in fiber, aid in digestion and can lower cholesterol.

The real problem with macadamia nuts is that I can't eat just a handful.  If I have a bag of them in my kitchen I keep going back for more.  I recently found a solution for my problem.

I separated my stash bag into servings (10 -12 is a serving) and put them in little snack sized baggies.  Then I asked my husband to hide them from me.  He is allowed to give me a bag every other day!

Now I can have my nuts and they last for a long time!

Do you have a food that you need to ration or have hidden from you?
