Tuesday, October 15, 2013      3 comments

Okay, I admit it. I love sugar. I live for Friday night date night, because my treats are all sugary goodness-chocolate bars, jube jubes, the occasional pop (usually Fresca, which is actually sugar free, but still a sweet treat). I love sugar ... Read more

I bet you've been wondering where I've been. I didn't drop off the planet, or have a terrible accident or anything. I actually had a weird epiphany while reading a book that was just supposed to be an "entertainment brain candy" type light... Read more

Well, I had a little reminder this week of a very simple concept. Making one little change can change a lot. It was Wednesday morning, 6am, and I was out on my usual 5k run. My run pal has been away all week, so I've been on my own, which i... Read more

I don't know what happened to my appetite today. I think it tripled itself overnight, like the Audrey plant in "Little Shop of Horrors", quickly bursting out of it's little flower pot, and looking to spread out. Man, I mean really. I don't ... Read more

It just goes to show, you never know where good suggestions will come from. Who would think that I'd get a great lifestyle tip from a Toastmasters meeting? But that's exactly what happened. I went to Toastmasters ready to be educated and ente... Read more
