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
Throwing a Tantrum on Weigh-In Day

Smelling Can Trick Your Brain?
Last week, I read a book called "Cut the Crap." Among some of his advice was something he states has been substantiated by studies.

What A Grazer I Am! (Was?)
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
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
Yoga's Not for Me
Having heard so many people rave about the benefits of Yoga, I had two DVD's on Netflix that I tried yesterday. For a long time, I've wanted to get into Yoga. (or so I thought)
Had to laugh at myself because I just didn't like it at all ... Read more
BYE BYE TO ANOTHER POUND
Yesterday I sincerely pondered ending this journey. Not giving up on a healthy lifestyle, but just not working at it anymore. It gets so tiresome sometimes. However, this morning's weekly weigh-in showed another pound down. Not much, but eno... Read more
Anyone Use Acidity Strips?

THE AMAZING SUPER MOON LAST NIGHT
I went outside with my high-powered binoculars and could see the formations on the moon quite clearly. It was a beautiful sight.
Doing well on my streaks, and not going to drive myself nuts with weekly weigh-in anticipation. It is what ... Read more
Adding Probiotics To My Life
Why? I really don't know. Having no issues with digestion, I thought that maybe it would help with overall health. I ordered some that will be arriving next week. Going to also sprinkle some on my cats' food as they have digestion problems a... Read more
"People Will Not Change...
...until it's too painful not to." This was said by one of the MD's on a panel of experts in a documentary I recently watched, "Preventing and Reversing Diabetes." A friend was just told he was prediabetic and I watched this film to get some i... Read more
