The "Habit" of Eating, Posted Pics, Misc.
Tuesday, August 30, 2016      10 comments

I heard the tail end of a radio segment by Dr. Sanjay Gupta who was saying that eating is a habit. Something clicked inside my brain; yes, an "aha" moment. Stated that way, I realized that I have kicked other habits and can surely kick this ea... Read more
Chromium & Sugar Cravings
Monday, August 29, 2016      11 comments

It really does work wonders for me. I'd been off sugar for quite awhile, but relapsed badly about a month ago. This past week, getting back in the right direction has been greatly helped with chromium. Amazing. Still tracking my food. N... Read more
TRIED CURRY FOR THE FIRST TIME
Sunday, August 28, 2016      9 comments

It was okay. Maybe an acquired taste. We'll see. Wasn't able to do my lake walk. Pain level was high, and I couldn't push myself through it. I hate to cancel commitments and disappoint friends. Took pics of my mature yards (3 years... Read more
Golden (Not Red) Raspberries
Saturday, August 27, 2016      8 comments

I was pretty surprised to see a different color raspberry and should have tried them. But I'm loyal to red raspberries. (smiling) Has anyone tried golden? Maybe next time I see them, I'll satisfy my curiosity. Unfortunately, I've eaten... Read more
Food Tracking, Mattress Success, Misc.
Friday, August 26, 2016      12 comments

For so long, I've resisted tracking my food intake. Not only being lazy, but afraid to see the actual daily number of calories I'd been ingesting. (smiling) However, this week's consistent logging in and tracking shows me how the number helps ... Read more
Sunscreen That Smells Like Fried Chicken
Thursday, August 25, 2016      10 comments

It's been in the news (and on the internet) that KFC has come out with a sunscreen that smells like fried chicken. I haven't looked into it further, so maybe it's a joke or a marketing tool. Because who would create such a thing and who would... Read more
Reiki, End of Mattress Saga (?), and Misc.
Wednesday, August 24, 2016      6 comments

A friend of mine is having great success with Reiki for pain abatement. I've heard good things from others as well. Although I've loved acupuncture results in the past, I've never experienced Reiki. Anyone else have thoughts on this? I'v... Read more
Stress
Tuesday, August 23, 2016      10 comments

I have many de-stressors in my life - ways to handle situations that cause anxiety and pressure. However, when it comes to relatives I care about, who make decisions that impact me, it's really hard to not get upset. For the sake of privacy - ... Read more

Curious to Hear From Those Who've Had Lasik and Used Raspberry Ketones
Saturday, August 20, 2016      7 comments

Not that the two topics are related; I'm thinking of having lasik done and have researched for a long time. I know a good place and doc to go to, so that part of the research is done. I have to admit that the 2 percent failure rate, although t... Read more
How Can Whey Protein Powder Brands Vary In Calories So Much?
Friday, August 19, 2016      9 comments

I start my day with a smoothie that contains various fruit, spinach, and a scoop of whey protein powder. Throughout my years, I've used different brands and they vary wildly in calories. I just don't get it; how can a scoop of powdered whey pr... Read more
I've Thrown Myself into the Arms of A Dangerous Lover (Sugar)
Thursday, August 18, 2016      7 comments

I have done so well with sugar this year; so much so that I've felt victorious. However, these past few weeks of a huge nerve pain flare-up (Shingles) have made me run into its clutches as a reward. Yes, I know better. I am correcting it as o... Read more
Coffee and Me
Saturday, August 13, 2016      13 comments

I've written about coffee so often during my time on SP, that it even bores me. I've tried giving it up so many times, even though only one small mug a day has been my only caffeine source. For about the past three months (out of the seven... Read more
I Found Someone's Prescription Meds on the Sidewalk While Walking
Friday, August 12, 2016      10 comments

I called the pharmacy that was listed on the label and gave them my name and phone number to give to the lady whose scrip this is. She just left a message on my phone and will probably be coming over to pick it up. Strange to look down on ... Read more
To Premiere, or NOT to Premiere - That is The Question
Thursday, August 11, 2016      8 comments

Throughout the years on SP, I've bought everything possible to be supportive of the site. I'm happy to hear so many rave about the new Premiere program. But, for me, it smacks of manipulation in NOT getting deluged by ads. I feel they've ... Read more
