I'm following his suggestions as closely as possible and all of my cravings have disappeared since my body is getting the correct nutrients. I occasionally think I have a craving, but realize that I don't. (smiling) Just an eating habit. We'll... Read more

What a difference a day makes! (yes, I'm singing it) I'm reading the "Eat to Live" book again. This time, it's sinking in. Loving these cooler temps, but heat wave is predicted for next week. Wishing all a wonderful day. ... Read more

Trampoline, Juicing, Sugar Blues (the film)
Monday, September 18, 2017      10 comments

I assembled my mini-trampoline and like it a lot. It was inexpensive and not really super-bouncy, but good for my purposes for light cardio. I figured I'd spend very little now, but if I love it, I can eventually upgrade. The last one I had, ... Read more
NSV Made Me Realize I Should be Measuring Instead of Weighing
Sunday, September 17, 2017      7 comments

Yesterday I received an effusive NSV, a compliment that raved on about my looking slim. Actually slim. I'm convinced that these (I had one about a month ago that was similar) have a lot to do with the illusion that clothing creates. I definit... Read more

Now that I have received my new juicer, I look at it and smile. You mean, no one is going to make the juices for me? No one is going to clean up after each use? Okay, I'm joking. Kinda. With everything, there is effort and work involv... Read more

Yes, my juicer arrives today. I've been through this rodeo before, but this time I'm going to try an experiment. I think. I've also got to research what to do with the pulp. I think I can use it in my smoothies. We'll see. I'm excited to s... Read more

After the facts of the hacking into the credit bureau (Equifax?) last week, I decided to freeze my credit reports with all three companies. I can unfreeze them, when needed; meanwhile, it gives a bit of peace of mind. I try to keep close tabs ... Read more

I saw this yesterday and am awed and amazed. If you can find it, I'd be interested in hearing what you think. I'll be accompanying my family member to the Urologist's office this afternoon. His 9mm kidney stone is causing him excruciati... Read more
ER, 9/11 and Misc.
Monday, September 11, 2017      9 comments

I still shed tears on 9/11 and part of my broken heart never mended from all the tragedy. Especially when they read the names and show the people jumping out of the buildings. And all of the first responders who've gotten sick and died since t... Read more
