This just came across my email. I love it, and it's surprising how much truth there is in it.
In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red ... Read more
Fuhrmanized Salads In A Mason Jar
So this evening I decided to process all my salad greens at once. Three heads of different lettuces along with some baby spinach. Then I cut up the other veggies - tomato, fennel, mushroom, onion and green onion, celery, red and yellow peppers, ... Read more
Make Ahead Mason Jars
So before I started on Eat To Live I had already realized that portion control was an issue, along with having something available when you are hungry. Plus I have a daughter who needs a lunch or breakfast she can grab on the way out the door. ... Read more
Off The Grid
Just thought I would let all my Sparkies know that I won't be dropping by for the next 3 days. This is the first long weekend of the spring/summer season and we'll be away from technology for a while.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend ... Read more
So Thursday was a revelation for our family. My daughter has been having health issues since February of 2011, following a "flu". She began having headaches, dizziness, pain in her upper abdomen and often down the right side (you know, the "om... Read more
Intervals on Low Carb too.
I've tried various diets over the years, but as a carboholic, I realize I have to exercise some discipline with the breads and potatoes and pasta. Some recent research suggests that taking a break on carbs for just a couple of days is more effe... Read more
Coming out of my cocoon for spring
I seem to do this every year. I hibernate through the winter, and in the spring, as my birthday approaches, I panic and try to pretend I'm a butterfly, trying to shed my fat suit. I'm smart enough to know that I should stick to a healthy life ... Read more
The Tale of a Trek
Sunday morning dawned drizzling and cool, about 6 C and we dragged ourselves out of bed, threw everything into the cars, and headed for the Southern Shore. An hour and a half later, we dropped one car off at the end of the trail, and then drove... Read more
I am honoured that my fellow 4-Hour Body - mates encouraged me to take up leadership of the Team. It means I have an opportunity to support others in reaching their goal to be healthy. But what does that mean for me? Well, in some way the pre... Read more

Something IS Different!
It was dumb of me to start all of this without measuring...granted. But my scale is finally telling me I'm getting some results. And today I had another confirmation. Pulled a pair of pants out of my closet that I haven't worn since last summ... Read more
A New Week, A New Year, A New Me? Comments appreciated.
So, today is the first day of my 53rd year. As some of you may know I've been stalled at 155 on the 4HB body using the food approach only. I read a bit about the 30 minutes after waking breakfast issue (I'm someone who doesn't eat as soon as I... Read more
Drama Fest Feast, not Famine
So I left Thursday to participate in the Provincial Drama Festival. Living in a hotel room, for 4 days I knew I would have minimal control over what was on offer, foodwise. I would have to be very careful about my choices. Luckily, with Slow-... Read more
3 Years, How Time Flies
I'm amazed. It's been 3 years since I was really active here. In that time the pounds have crept back on, and I'm as heavy as I was 17 years ago, after my daughter was born. In that 3 years I've lost my Mother, my best friend. It was more of... Read more
An Easter Holiday
From about Good Friday on, I've been on a diet holiday. That's not to say that I didn't consider what I was eating, and try to be sensible most of the time, but I didn't beat myself up about enjoying Easter treats and a good Easter dinner eithe... Read more
