It said that when you're feeling groggy or foggy to sniff ground sage for an energy boost. Research showed that sage aroma suppresses the enzyme acetylcholinesterase that prevents the brain's ability to feel alert and happy! Not only that, but aromatherapy experts say sage can improve mental focus AND memory!
My personal suggestion is...fresh ground or a good brand of coarse ground sage. The cheap stuff is very offensive to my nose.
Hi, it's been a while since I've stopped by your page to check on you so I thought I'd take a quick moment; how are things going for you?
I read somewhere that one lady stacked empty butter cartons on top of each other as she lost the weight so that she could see what it looked like. Now I picture every pound of my excess weight as a brick of butter; which is also pure fat. So any weight I lose, I mentally stack in the corner of my mind to remind me what it looks like.
Hey... Keep reminding yourself how hard you worked and that you deserve to lose for your efforts; and by all means, keep on keeping on! Dusty

Hi ! It's December already; can you believe it? November and December are the busiest months for me (besides July and August and September!) It seems the Holidays bring our friends and families closer and we spend more time visiting, and entertaining during these two months than any others; lots of Holiday preparation going too!
I find that I don't often get an opportunity to get around to Sparkpeople as much, but I try to stay focused as much as possible. Sometimes my good friend Will Power (who is always a welcome guest) doesn't show up until 'after' dinner, but I'm working on that as well.
I hope things are going well for you and you don't find yourself too busy to take care of yourself. You are the most important person in your life!
