Thursday, December 25, 2014      3 comments

Day 20 -- Turning back the clock

Saturday, December 20, 2014      8 comments

I won't tell you guys just how much I've lost in December because: 1) I don't want to jinx myself or rest on my laurels and 2) I want to say the number with pride on January 1 and hear y'all gasp. Let's just say I'm making more progress in Dece... Read more

Thursday, December 18, 2014      2 comments

I had to take a break from my juicing due to my acid reflux -- it was pretty much just white rice for a few days there. I'm feeling a lot better today and decided to segue back into juicing with a little bit of carrot and persimmon this morning... Read more

Wednesday, December 17, 2014      4 comments

Tons of good news -- I got offers for both of the jobs I interviewed for last week! That means I'll have a tough but excellent decision ahead of me this week. It ALSO means that soon -- in January, most likely -- I'll be kissing my horrendous ... Read more

Day 11 -- Using my treats

Thursday, December 11, 2014      3 comments

I'm starting to use my treat stones but it's funny, I'm not quite sure when to use them. For those who missed it earlier, my health coach has given me 5 pretty, colorful, smooth stones that I carry in my bag. Each one represents a "treat". Wh... Read more

Monday, December 08, 2014      6 comments

I'm going to re-post part of a blog I wrote on 2/2/13 because it is equally apropos today: "Well, I'm on a positive streak which is good. I've logged in and tracked for 8 days. I've met and exceeded my water goals for 8 days. . . As we kno... Read more
