Size 10 Need Not Apply
I recently read an article on the MSN website about a singles dating group on the East Coast that didn't want any potential members that are a size 10 or above. Except for these past few years, I have always been thin but never a size 10. This... Read more
Too Much Exercise Bad for You?
Just heard a news report that some people experience the opposite effects than those intended when they overdo exercise. Some of these include higher blood pressure and cholesterol.

Flame Retardants In Food
So, this morning's news contained more revelations on what's been recently found in some commonly-eaten foods like peanut butter - flame retardants that are used on shingles! Seems like there are fewer and fewer choices for good health. Very d... Read more
Radioactive Tuna In San Diego
The topic of radiation was quickly turned off by the media shortly after the catastrophic earthquake in Japan. Each time it comes up again, they assure us there's no danger. Yet, the radiation continues to increase. The tuna swimming along ou... Read more
A HUGE VICTORY THIS MORNING
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
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.

No Cookouts For Me
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
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
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!!!
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
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
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?
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
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
