Jimaca Opinion (following up on yesterday's blog)
Thursday, January 10, 2019      20 comments

To answer some of the questions that responders asked me on yesterday's blog, I bought the jimaca out of curiosity and the fact that it was only a dollar. It was twice the size of a baseball and looked like a potato. Harder to peel and cut... Read more

Self-Like vs Self-Love
Monday, January 07, 2019      21 comments

I think that many people are put off by the concept of loving self. It sounds selfish. I myself, if asked, would say that I don’t feel toward myself the way I love my family and friends. It is a shoe that just doesn’t fit. HOWEVER, I’ve ... Read more

Friday, January 04, 2019      22 comments

Either I can't think of a thing to blog about, or have a rush of topics to cover. As I've mentioned days ago, decorations are packed away, but because my front yard lights are small, twinkly things, I plan to keep them up and on for awhile. Th... Read more

SUGAR ADDICTION, GENETICS, AND ALCOHOLISM
Saturday, December 29, 2018      23 comments

I’ve wondered about this for some time. I’ve heard from some people that there are a lot of sweet treats at AA meetings because alcoholics, even if beating the alcohol addiction, have a tough time with sugar. My bio dad (whom I’ve never met or... Read more

Friday, December 28, 2018      15 comments

….the feeling of being without added sugar for 17 days now? It's an amazing feeling. Have done this before, but each time I went back to sugar thinking "now I can handle it moderately." But each time, I did more and more. Yup, just like any ... Read more
What Went Up, Must Come Down

I decorated early (November 15), so I'm ready to move on. I'm dismantling in stages, just like I did when I put everything up. That's the hard part about doing so much, it's a LOT of work. But it was fun and worth it. A lot like losing w... Read more

Trying to Remember to Savor Those First Three Bites
Saturday, December 22, 2018      22 comments

I've read so many times how our taste buds are sharpest with the first three bites. After that, we are just eating and not really tasting the way we did those three bites. Funny, I thought I was savoring the whole meal! (smiling) It's hard to... Read more

Friday, December 21, 2018      21 comments

I'm thrilled when I control "bad" sugars, and totally forget that fruit has high sugar content as well. But I love it and so does my body, so that's about it for now. Wishing all a wonderful day. ... Read more

Thursday, December 20, 2018      19 comments

I've been struggling with hip pain for a couple of years now. No injury, no pulls, nothing preceded it. It all started with a mattress, a very good mattress. But it wasn't right for me. Three years and three mattresses later, this past March... Read more
