4 Years Ago On Columbus Day
Four years ago, on Columbus Day 2008, I embarked on a new adventure (just as Columbus did). For the very first time in my life, I was putting myself on a diet.
That's right, very first time. A spoiled brat in the sense that I had a lifelo... Read more
Gas Prices ($4.59 & rising) & MOD
On Monday, I filled my tank (vehicle, not my body's) with $4.15 gal. Two days later, $4.59 and rising daily. In a week, they are saying there will be lines and some stations closing. This is in San Diego. Every time gas goes up like this, th... Read more
October 1st w/Record High Temps?
Well, I can't believe this is October already. And triple digits are predicted today. This heat has gone on for too long. Can't wait for cooler weather.
Wishing all a happy and healthy month of October.... Read more
What About Chitosan?
Yesterday, I stumbled across this as a "fat blocker." Upon further research, there seemed to be no conclusive evidence that it "blocks" or absorbs fat. Anyone have any experience with this?... Read more
YIKES! Too Many Smoothies!
When I started juicing about three months ago, I lost a lb a day, but then switched to making smoothies when I got the new blender. This includes making a v-8 type of blend.
Well, I guess I overdid the smoothie thing. For the first time... Read more
HEAT ALMOST GONE, NOW FIRE SEASON
This past month's high temps have left me like a ragdoll. Supposed to break soon and get cooler.
However, now San Diego is headed into its fire season, with a big one already blazing in East County. Very scary. Nearly had to evacuate las... Read more

Plate Scraping Test
I have noticed that there are certain "foods" that do not scrape off plates and forks/spoons easily - even after being soaked. When this happens, I think that if this happens on external things, just think of how it adheres to our insides and c... Read more
Prince Harry's Eyeball, and Misc.
Saturday's trip to the vet (AGAIN!) was relatively stressfree and everyone gushed over Harry. He was a good boy in front of others, and saved his whining for the ride there and back, just for me. (smiling)
It's day 2 of these new eyedrops ... Read more
Caffeine Weaning Process
Down to just 1/4 small mug of coffee daily. Looks like I may do it this time w/o tons of aches and pains. Hoorayyyyyyyy!

TWO TERRIFIC COMPLIMENTS LATELY
During the past week, one friend who was ordering lunch at a yuckadoo fast food place asked if I wanted anything. I never make a big deal of my regimen, nor do I judge others. When I said, no thank you, she said, "you know, you've come such a ... Read more
My Adrenals Hurt
Instead of cold turkey detox from my small daily mug of coffee/caffeine, I'm trying to wean slowly.
However, whenever I do this not only do I get the headaches, but my adrenals also rebel until the caffeine is completely out of my system. ... Read more
This Is a Royal Pain
In about an hour, I have the great pleasure (NOT!) of trying to round up Prince Harry, put him in the carrier, and head out to the vet again. His eyeball was treated about a month ago and has gotten worse. I'm hoping it's just a matter of stro... Read more

I NO LONGER EVEN THINK OF SUGAR
In fact, about a week ago, I took a half banana out of the freezer (I use them for my smoothies) as I was having a hunger attack. Could only eat about half of it - it was too sweet!!! Can you believe that? Unreal, for the former sugar queen o... Read more
