A HUGE VICTORY THIS MORNING

Tuesday, May 29, 2012      8 comments

Even though I've been off of caffeine for about four months now, never really loved it, and only drank a small amount, I've gone through constant obsessing over it for the past two weeks. That was when I threw the coffeemaker and remainder of t... Read more

I Remember All The Time

Monday, May 28, 2012      3 comments

My gratitude is not limited to one holiday a year. As a free spirt, I've always always always treasured my freedom. And, as such, have had a lifelong gratitude for those who've served. And who've paid the ultimate price. Contrary to my ... Read more

No Cookouts For Me

Sunday, May 27, 2012      6 comments

Living year-round in a city with eternal sunshine, cookouts are the norm whenever the spirit moves me. But being pretty burned out (pun intended) on them, I decided that I'll do this holiday weekend w/o the grill. I know, almost unheard of! K... Read more

Back to Acupuncture

Saturday, May 26, 2012      4 comments

I've found a great place with an expert who charges very reasonably. Have some issues that I'm sure acupuncture will help. It has in the past. Will be going this morning. Wishing all a fun holiday weekend.... Read more

May Goal & Looking into June

Friday, May 25, 2012      4 comments

I really didn't set a firm goal in May. I'd had a vague one about eating less cheese, and I accomplished that. And I continued my previous months' goals of no sugar, no caffeine and no night eating. Overall, I allowed myself to be goal-free i... Read more

BYE BYE TO ANOTHER 2 LBS!!!

Wednesday, May 23, 2012      9 comments

All my hard work is starting to pay off. Bright and early this morning on my weigh-in day, I got on the scale with no expectations only to look down and see that 2 more lbs have left town. YIPPEEEEEEE! HOORAY HOORAY! Am I excited? You bet! ... Read more

A MILESTONE FOR ME

Tuesday, May 22, 2012      10 comments

I have to admit that I've been pondering this decision for weeks, unable to mentally let go of this security blanket of sorts. Although it's been over three months of no caffeine, I still held onto the old coffeemaker and remaining coffee on th... Read more

R.I.P. Robin Gibb & Donna Summer

Monday, May 21, 2012      2 comments

Two more talents go away. My fave songs of theirs was It's Only Words, Massachusetts, and one other slow one I can't remember the name. And the voice of Donna Summer will be missed as well. R.I.P.... Read more

Americans Spend 1/5 of Food Budget...

... on veggies and fruit, according to a report I heard recently. They said that, although people think that healthy foods are more expensive, when looked at more closely, they are actually not. What's more expensive than all of the garbag... Read more

Coffee Drinkers Live Longer?

Friday, May 18, 2012      4 comments

Yet another "study" has been in the news all day; coffee drinkers live longer. It's been over three months (today is day 106 in fact) that I detoxed from caffeine. It was a hard fought battle and I thought I was ready to throw away the old cof... Read more

Another Pound Bites the Dust

Thursday, May 17, 2012      6 comments

Yesterday, when I blogged and whined about the scale, I knew that I felt lighter. Even a pound makes a difference in how I feel. Today I jumped on it again and am down a pound. That's a total of 8 in the past two months. Slowly, but surely.... Read more

Throwing a Tantrum on Weigh-In Day

Wednesday, May 16, 2012      4 comments

Today's weigh-in was a bit disappointing at the same number as last week. I know, I know, I won't focus on it. But it's still a bummer of a disappointment.... Read more

Smelling Can Trick Your Brain?

Tuesday, May 15, 2012      4 comments

Last week, I read a book called "Cut the Crap." Among some of his advice was something he states has been substantiated by studies. If we sniff delicious food, it tricks our brain into thinking we've eaten it. Honestly, I doubt that wou... Read more

What A Grazer I Am! (Was?)

Monday, May 14, 2012      2 comments

Now that I am leaving cut veggies in-view all day to snack on, I realize that the very behavior of putting something in my mouth, chewing, swallowing, and then eating more, is such a habit. And how used to it I was, even quite awhile after join... Read more

Roasted Seaweed

Friday, May 11, 2012      6 comments

In the spirit of adventure, I bought a tiny snack that I'm going to try this weekend - roasted seaweed. I'm sure it won't become a staple, but I'll check it out. Have a fun day and Happy Mother's Day weekend.... Read more
