Monday, April 09, 2012     

I am a little behind on my blogs. This is what I learned when I did the 3 day Green Smoothie Challenge back in mid March. After the challenge was over, I went to raw salads for lunch and raw soups for dinner for a couple of days, to ease b... Read more
Upping my exercise and back on plan

Just a note to say that I am on Leslie's 2 mile walk instead of one. I aim to be on the 3 mile by the end of the month. And I am back on a plan. Green Smoothie in the morning, raw salad or soup for lunch and then a clean, healthy, possibly vegan... Read more
Had a really bad day yesterday
Thursday, March 22, 2012     

I did. It was emotionally low, eating low, decision making low... and I woke up incredibly depressed about it all. I am working what the trigger(s) might have been. Family? Weight? Numbers? Usually it takes more than one to set me off. One... Read more

Monday, March 12, 2012     

I just got off the phone with my Drs office. My wellness check up isn't until 3/22 but my lab work was back. I asked her to read some of it to me. Well, my AIC was the same as it was last Fall, 6.4. That's not horrible, but I was expecting under... Read more
Just rambling about my strange day...
Wednesday, March 07, 2012     

Just a strange day today. Noone felt right. Noone got along. Everyone was cranky. Even me. So much today for the light and love of clean eating spreading out before me. It was more like a dust devil. LOL... I did not feel clear headed and was mo... Read more

I have a bottle in my cupboard and don't use it very often. I also have Stevia, maple syrup and local raw honey. I don't use them very often either but I keep reading to find out which one is the best. I think it is depending on the circumstance... Read more
