    I am thinking Laura that if raisins count then craisins should count too I would call them red

    Wow I love craisins. I wouldn't count them though because they are mostly sugar. The brands I've tried haven't even had any vitamin C to speak of in them, so your best guide is going to be the label. If there are vitamins listed, they count. If not, they are candy. Tasty, slightly less empty candy, but candy.

    Good afternoon!!

    Breakfast - Hot Pocket. No colors
    Lunch - Chow Mein. Still no colors
    Snack - Apricots (orange)
    Dinner - I have not thought that far ahead yet.

    Once again, physical therapy kicked my butt this morning. Did 1.5 miles of the bike and then stretches for 1 hour. I guess it was kinda like yoga.

    Does yoga even burn calories??

    Well, only 2 weeks away from going to the orthopedic to get all of the details about surgery. I wish it would just get here already so i could ease my mind a little bit.

    I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!!

    rohvannyn replied to mardee's response:
    Mardee, surprisingly yoga, and stretching, burns calories! The fitness planner or fitday or calorie count can probably tell you how much. These days I see a lot of fitness experts advocating a mix of cardio, weight training, and stretching, so stretching is definitely a good thing to do. According to what I've read it helps muscles strengthen as well.
