Learning Mac and Balancing Diet

hqdefaultI haven’t been to much fun lately as I have been spending a lot of time learning to work with my Macbook Pro. There is a steep learning curve when switching over from PC, but I have found and excellent learning website called pcclassesonline.com. Not only is it free but it also provides links to other important software I need to download. So today is the first day that I am writing a post from my new Mac and I am enjoying it. I will have to get used to the keyboard as it is a lot smaller than the PC laptop’s full keyboard. I am working with a 13 inch screen versus the 17 inch screen on the PC and I actually like it. I have both systems side by side and I can see that when I finally decide to sell the PC laptop I will be using less desk space and that does make me happy.

I am still having problems making the transition between quicken and mint, but it is coming along and I do like the idea that I can make changes to my accounts from any computer anywhere in the world.

It appears that my body weight did go up slightly but this is only natural as I have been sitting at a computer all day yesterday. I did get an excellent workout in however and managed to wait until 12:00 PM to eat. And most importantly I didn’t eat one cookie, but I did have 2 slices of bread in which I created a BLT. Dinner last night was a half of a grass fed beef burger, 1 corn on the cob and fresh salad from the garden. So the only two errors I made were the bread and corn and both are probably responsible for the fact that my morning glucose is still over 100.

    I’ve worked with Windows and Linux for years so when my family got me a MacBook Pro for my 60th birthday, I was thrilled to have a new OS. Of course, I had already switched from Linux to a Mac at work, so it wasn’t entirely unfamiliar. If you don’t know something, Google is your friend. I love new toys.
