Is chocolate cake on a diet?

Monday I started another week of trying to eat healthy and exercise more. Sunday I made chocolate zucchini cake and there was still cake on Wednesday so I decided to bring some for lunch. I've been logging my calories online and am under my calorie count for the day but my sugars were high so I said no to the apple. How many of you have done that?

Otherwise it's been pretty easy to follow. Eating lots of veggies, fruit, some protein, and not many carbs. Carbs as in grains or starches only in the a.m. or lunch. And no wine.

Harvest Moon

Prepare for the Super Harvest Moon! For the first time in two decades, the Sun will sink as the full Moon rises exactly opposite to it on the day the summer ends, creating a strange 360-degree twilight show.
If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the autumnal equinox and a Super Harvest Moon will cross the sky after almost 20 years since the last time it happened. When the Sun starts to set on the Western horizon, a full moon will rise opposite to it on the East, reflecting the light of our home star.
Being close to the horizon, the orange Moon will be gigantic thanks to a psychological effect called the Moon illusion. The sky will be illuminated by the Sun and the Moon at the same time, creating a weird 360-degree effect that is rarely seen.
You don't need to do anything special to enjoy the show, just get ready for the sunset. Make sure to have a clear view to both East and West.
In NYC, the event will happen at 6:54pm. You can check the time in your city here.
And as an added bonus, when the summer ends at 11:09pm Eastern Time, Jupiter will appear right next to the Moon.
Remember to take photos and send them to [NASA]

Monday musings

I made the lasagna over the weekend and is did not turn out that great. There wasn't enough sauce. So I opened up a jar of sauce and added it to the bottom and top of 2 casseroles. Then I added some more shredded cheese to the top. Microwaved some for lunch today and it tasted great.
