Here's another thing I've noticed about eating a clean vegan diet....I finally know what food tastes like. Oh...I know. I tasted before...but my food was always "doctored" up with margarine, ketchup, salt, sour cream on potatoes etc. I never kn... Read more

Even though Vegan, I wasn't always a "clean" eater. If a junk food version of anything exists, I'll find it. And I did. My weight loss slowed and I didn't feel my best. Truth is, I'd get up, eat breakfast and be starving a couple of hours later.... Read more

I watched this movie today and have to say that I am impressed beyond words. If I hadn't been vegan before, this would change my mind for sure. No gruesome animal info (Trust me...I need a valium to watch Lassie re-runs). This was just good soli... Read more

Sunday, October 09, 2011      0 comments

OMG! I am soooo out of shape. I can't believe it was THAT hard to walk 30 minutes! I huffed and puffed the whole way. Embarrassed, out of breath, knees aching, but I DID IT. I am almost too tired to be proud of myself. Two weeks ago I was at a... Read more

They say the definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over while expecting different results. I guess I have been guilty of that. I have been waiting for this economy to change and riding the wave of unemployment and layoffs. E... Read more

Well...Irene came and went and we lost power for a while. The trees near the window were swaying and popping but so far they still stand. Hal and I had an enjoyable time talking and playing with kittens by candle light. In fact, we plan to turn ... Read more
