Wednesday, March 12, 2014      2 comments

There's a reason it's called Insanity yet I never learn. No matter how little I smash in my gob, it always threatens to revisit me. Even water is a challenge in that class. So, my message to you tonight, eat NOTHING before attempting it. And if ... Read more

I wondered what ideas people had for creating a salad bar in their fridge. I searched and mostly found nicely organized ways to arrange containers full of condiments/veggies. All helpful time savers. If you have any fun tips, please share! ... Read more

This past year has been a whirlwind. I let stress take me over, I didn't focus on myself much, and I didn't see much progress towards any goals I set. The result...a gain of 10 pounds and a new diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Lovely. But you... Read more
