Mon, 3 Aug 2009 11:45:58 EST Learning something new everyday I made peanut butter today!! I had no idea it was so easy and so quick. <BR> <BR> 2 cups roasted peanuts <BR> 1-1/2 tsp peanut oil <BR> <BR> blend in food processor until the peanuts are thoroughly chopped up or a ball forms. If you want add a small amount of sucunat or agave nectar. Put in jar and keep in the refrigerator. <BR> <BR> Nothing funky in your peanut butter (partially hydrogenated oils, HFCS, etc). Simply peanuts, oil and possibly a sweetener. <BR> <BR> Enjoy!! Sat, 13 Jun 2009 15:31:23 EST Cleaning out the kitchen Well, I'm clearing out all the crap from my pantry, frig and freezer.

I figured it would be a bit rough, but I did not expect to be so emotional. I was suppose to go out with the girls tonight, but I'm really not in the mood to be around people. Heck I can't even exercise without crying. That's when I know it's bad. <BR> <BR> And it's not just being away from my son that is the problem. There is a lot of stress at work, te... Sat, 30 May 2009 18:31:03 EST One habit replaced another...let's see what happened Well, let's see since I quit smoking on February 2nd, and those darn little cancer sticks were replaced with wonderful, mouth water CHOCOLATE!! So when something stressful happened at or at home instead of stepping outside and having a smoke I would sit and put a tasty morsel of yumminess into my mouth. WOW! I really had a lot of stress ~ 12 - 15 pounds & 8% Body Fat worth to be exact. <BR> <BR> Of course, you don't realize this until your clothes start to fit snug, well actually REALLY t...
