Merry Christmas Eve!
Holidays suck in one way....all the goodies that are made and passed around. They are difficult to pass up however I see one allergy in my life as a blessing in disguise. I'm intolerant to wheat. That takes out at least 75% of the foods and a... Read more
South Beach Diet Phase 1, Day 10
I'm retaining water today evidenced by the fact that the scale was up 3 lbs and I've been to the bathroom nonstop today, lol. Otherwise phase 1 is going great. Tomorrow, however, is our annual "Cookie Fest". My sister and I get together every... Read more
South Beach Diet Phase 1, Day 4

It's absolutely amazing what happens when you cut out things you're intolerant to (or think you're intolerant to). I cut out dairy and lo and behold, 5 lbs gone in 3 days. I can even eat oatmeal and not GAIN weight. Last year, I thought I was... Read more
Giving Dairy the Axe
It's really darn hard to give up dairy products! Milk....ehhh...not so hard as I can replace it with rice milk but cheese, oh my! It's REALLY hard to forego cheese but I have to. I'm trying to eliminate any products that may be causing an ove... Read more
9 days of Antibiotics = Sore Throat???
I'd like to believe that these antibiotics are doing wonders for my immune system....ya know, helping it fight off nasty illnesses, however, here I sit with a sore throat and a slight ear ache. Usually that's indicative of yet ANOTHER sinus inf... Read more
Took Yesterday off Work
Yeah....Sunday I was basically dying at work (sick with bronchitis). I felt soooooo bad so I figured I needed the rest and took Monday off. Monday brought about more "I'm working on me this year" discussion with my husband. I told him that I'... Read more
No Cardio for me for a while
I've got bronchitis. Friday I went to the dr because I've been sick for 3 weeks. I get better, then worse again, then better and then worse. So, now I'm on 10 days of antibiotics and I got an antibiotic shot in my butt. There's a little lump... Read more

Rededication to the South Beach Diet
I've been on a nearly year long hiatus from SBD and it's time to do something for myself instead of taking care of everyone else! Leaving myself on the backburner is something I'm working on changing. I will be the first person I take care of ... Read more

Last Week, not quite how I wanted it.
Monday was a bad day, I got no sleep the night before so trying to even exercise on top of that would not have been good for my body.
Tuesday, I got TJ Cardio Party in.
Wednesday, my oldest stepson had the TV, so I went in the gara... Read more
