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
Shortest Break In History (smiling)
When I wrote that last blog, and immediately started taking my break, I felt the loss of support right away. Wow, I am touched by the messages you've left, and feel that I should just do less of SP than to cut it off completely. I've been stru... Read more
Taking a Break From SP
Not sure for how long, but will be continuing this healthy lifestyle, of course. I've been on here much longer than I ever thought I would, and several reasons for needing a break.
Happy trails to all and I hope to see you again soon.... Read more
Just Checking In to Say Hi
I really haven't had much to say lately; plus, spending less time on SP. But thought I'd check in to say hello.
Things going fine. Still haven't bonded with Vitamix. I use it daily, but no huge gushing over it.
On plateau. So what ... Read more
No Hunger, Juicing, Vitamix Update, Habit Eating
I'll probably go into these topics in coming blogs as they deserve more attention than a brief overview.
I noticed, during these past two weeks of juicing, that I have no hunger. I mean, none. My body must be pretty nutritionally-balanc... Read more
Happy September & Goal
OMG, already September! And I'm going to try and try again - to get off caffeine once and for all. Yes, I've tried this before and succeeded for awhile. But I want it done permanently.
Even though I don't drink a lot of coffee, I have we... Read more
I want to outline my goals as a reminder of what I want to achieve with this new Vitamix:
- No wasted pulp, as I had with juicing
- Make my vegetables and fruit stash go further (it takes soooo much to make juice!)
- Experiment with new... Read more
The Monster Has Arrived
Yes, the Vitamix is here. I unboxed it yesterday afternoon, registered it online (guaranteed for 7 years!), and watched the DVD. Also thumbed through the nice cookbook that gives a ton of great ideas on all types of recipes. I do intend to ... Read more
VITAMIX DUE TO ARRIVE TODAY!
I'm very excited, as I've never researched a product with so many happy users. I can't wait to make juices and smoothies without wasting so much pulp. As I've continued juicing, I realize that I really want to use the entire fruit and veggie.

Have a happy day, sparkies!... Read more

Trying Almond Milk for the First Time
Yesterday's trip to the grocery store made me almost laugh out loud as I looked in my cart and saw, once again, only healthy stuff. Honestly, can't get over myself and this new wave of doing so well. Decided to try Almond milk, and not sure wh... Read more
