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!
Wishing all a happy day.... Read more
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
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
