Because I ROCK, today was day 2 of my NO SUGAR detox. I have eaten so much sugar over the last few weeks, it is ridiculous!
So on Wednesday, I went without sugar. No cookies, no candy, no breads, no cakes, no cake pops... NOTHING. I was very proud of myself yesterday and ate fruit instead. Plain, delicious fruit. (see my blog from yesterday called Somehow, I forgot).
Today was a bigger challenge. I went to my Grandmother (in laws) house. She has a huge sweet tooth and I always bring her cookies or bring her cake or something.
I brought her Safeway soup and we had that and french bread for lunch. I also brought her a square of chocolatey chocolate cake. She does NOT take NO for an answer and she always makes sure I eat at least one cookie or something else I brought her.
Today, I ate an apple on the way over, ate the soup and bread and then dessert time. I cut her a square and then I sat down with the fruit salad I had purchased at Safeway.
She said, "you are having fruit? No cake?" I told her "I LOVE cake but Grandma, I have been eating much to much so I am going to not have any sugar for a week".
She said A WEEK??? Lol. I told her when I first set out to lose weight, I didnt eat extra sugar for weeks and weeks. I also told her I wanted to lose the few pounds I had gained over the holidays plus, I needed to still lose some more.
She dropped it and that was the end of that. I was so glad she did. I can only take so much pressure!
I am super proud of myself for not eating anything with extra sugar for the last 2 days. 2 days may not seem like much to some people, but to me, it is launching me on to success.
I am remembering that small steps lead to big gains.

Hello my friends!
This is the last Sunday check in for 2012. This week has had many ups and downs for me...I'm quite tired and done now. I have had several events, all at our house, which I love, had a wonderful day with MY side of the family and was just ready yesterday to clean up and put things away. we are going to to a new years eve party at a friends house so all I have to do is bring some cake balls. I'm really sick of baking but I think I have enough in the freezer that I won't have to bake anymore.
Yesterday my MIL wrote to inform us God told her to come visit us today. That has turned into my SIL, her husband, her two grown kids and their 5 children! The kids are horrid brats, I'm so sorry to say. I'm NOT looking forward to this but my hubby is so gracious to my family, I will be the same to his family. So I am cooking yet again! And cleaning so the house looks decent. I may have to bust out the wine to get through the day but we are going to go walk our dog now before they get here this morning to work off some tension... and THEN I'm DONE! At least for awhile. I'm looking forward to getting back to normal life, food and exercise routines and making 2013 a very successful year.
I wish that for all of you as well... health, love, happiness and joy. Not to mention hitting some goals!
Happy New Year, sparkies!!!

As some of you may know 3 months ago, I began taking amberen for menopause symptoms. Within a week, the hot flashes had improved and every week, the symptoms dissipated. You are supposed to take it for 3 months and then get off of it so your normal hormones take over. I finished 2 weeks ago.
Almost immediately the night sweats began, the crankiness and insomnia returned and I realized, it was because I'm not on it anymore. I wrote to them and they said I could continue taking it, that it was fine. So I'm going to take another 3 monthe course of it.
I'm telling you, this stuff has helped so much! can't wait for my delivery! I hope after the next 3 months my body will stabilize. I'm grateful something helps though because menopause ain't for wimps!
