The Pumpkin Pie
Friday, November 29, 2013      17 comments

What can I say, It's once a year. A tradition of sorts, The worst kind, I fear. I'd intended to freeze The pieces, I wrote. You commended the idea, But now I could float. Like a balloon at the parade At Macy's, I'm stuffe... Read more
FOR THIS AND SO MUCH MORE
Thursday, November 28, 2013      11 comments

For a year of constant loss and sorrow, Worries beyond compare, And more lost loved ones. For a very bumpy road with No GPS to show me the way I almost lost mine. Yes, for this year and so much more I am thankful. Because I'm sti... Read more
My First Pumpkin Protein Smoothie
Wednesday, November 27, 2013      15 comments

I finally made it, after having planned to do so days ago. It turned out delish, although more like custard with a spoon than a smoothie through a straw. Nonetheless, I added some whey protein powder and it was really yummy. Oh, how I love pu... Read more
Does Anyone Wear (or has ever worn) TUK shoes? If so, what's your take?
Tuesday, November 26, 2013      11 comments

I'm on the fence about ordering them even though they have many positive reviews on Amazon. Just curious if any of my SP friends like them or how comfortable they are.... Read more
Day 3 No Caffeine & No Headache? Could This be True?
Tuesday, November 26, 2013      13 comments

In the past when I've attempted giving up coffee/caffeine, even though just one small mug daily was imbibed, I went through weeks of awful body and head aches. This time, on day 3, still no headache and it's almost a miracle, if true. Maybe gr... Read more
Day 2 No Caffeine. Day 36 Calorie Correction Course.
Monday, November 25, 2013      17 comments

Last night, after my first day of no caffeine, I was so tired that I laid down at 6 p.m. and was out for the night! Yikes! This is day 2 and I'm awaiting the arrival of the awful headache. Since there is none yet, it could be that either I ha... Read more
Eat It vs. Drink It- Same Calories?
Sunday, November 24, 2013      19 comments

It seems like a dumb question, kinda like that pound of feathers vs. pound of gold they asked as kids. We always thought a lb of feathers was lighter. (smiling) Soooo, if I make a smoothie with 4 cutie tangerines, do I count that as eati... Read more
Spent the Day Helping A Friend through A Very Bad Gout Bout
Saturday, November 23, 2013      15 comments

Yesterday I spent most of the day helping a friend who couldn't even stand up due to gout. These bouts are coming more frequently and it is sad to see someone formerly healthy being unable to function. I'll be doing some research today on poss... Read more
My New Detox Technique-Making it Taste Yucky
Friday, November 22, 2013      17 comments

I'm trying to wean myself from caffeine. Even though I only drank one small mug a day, it was slowly progressing to more because I was making coffee taste amazingly delish. Not a problem for many, but I am caffeine sensitive and have tried to ... Read more
Bowl of Candy in the Dentist's Office
Thursday, November 21, 2013      18 comments

Last week, I stopped into a nearby dentist's office. I'm looking for a new one and like to meet the folks and look around before deciding. I joked to the receptionist about the big bowl of candy sitting on the counter. She explained that ... Read more
I Threw Away M & M's
Wednesday, November 20, 2013      20 comments

I found a little package of m&m's left over from Halloween. Instantly tossed it without wanting it. Woohoo for me! I've written a couple of blogs about my pumpkin pie plan and not eating the entire pie on Thanksgiving. Then I remembered ... Read more
1 Liter of Water Goes Bye-Bye While We Sleep
Tuesday, November 19, 2013      13 comments

This weekend, I was mattress shopping. On the counter of the mattress store was a beaker that held a liter of water. WOW! They were reminding folks to stay healthily hydrated due to water loss during the night. I came home and looked at a li... Read more
Day 29 of CCC. Down another lb. And my pumpkin pie plan for Thanksgiving.
Monday, November 18, 2013      17 comments

It's day 29 of my calorie correction course and another lb is gone. That's 10 so far. Lest we get too thrilled, this is my catching up from re-gained weight during this year (since March I gained some lbs that I'd previously lost). But I real... Read more
Ouch - this headache. Down to half of a small mug of coffee. (detoxing)
Sunday, November 17, 2013      15 comments

Well, I may just forget about weaning myself slowly and bite the bullet. Started the migraine I get from getting rid of caffeine and this won't be pretty. Yes, I've tried this several times before, but will continue the effort 'cause I'm very ... Read more
To My Beloved Baby Boy who Departed on This Date
Saturday, November 16, 2013      41 comments

They said that time would heal my heart, Perhaps I know that's true. But a huge piece is no longer there - In fact, it left with you. I heard you cry, I loved you so Although we never met. Every moment you lived inside me I neve... Read more
