Okay, so I'm sitting here, having finished eating for the day and I'm still craving sweets and chips. Any suggestions for low calorie, low carb chocolate snacks?... Read more
Testing the limits

So, I started eating low carb at the beginning of the year. Slowly I have added things back in--fruit and yogurt, low carb fajita shells, and last night Skinny Pop. This is what I discovered-- LOW CARB WORKS! I dropped 8lbs. Yesterd... Read more

You have been so faithful and encouraging! Woubbie: I will try drinking some broth! I may buy some bars occasionally, but I will search out other methods of satisfying my sweet tooth first. Annie: you're absolutely right, I have upped... Read more

Okay, it's the 4th day of the New Year. To jump start eating a low carb diet, my roommate and I decided to try phase one of Atkins for two weeks. But, we also decided to review day to see how it went and what we may want to change and when. ... Read more

I no longer make "resolutions". I set goals. Resolutions are just that--resolute! Since I rarely ever kept my "resolution" through the year, I always felt like a failure. So, last year I set a goal instead. Just one goal: to avoid eating ch... Read more

Tuesday, December 23, 2014      3 comments

Thank you all for your comments! I haven't tried cooking with lard. I've read that it doesn't cream as well as shortening. I've used coconut oil in other recipes and it definitely tastes like coconut. (Great if you're making coconut cook... Read more

Once a year I tend to bake Christmas cookies. One particular kind. A recipe my mother created and which I changed a bit. But, this recipe calls for shortening. Now I know that shortening is not good--hydrogenated fats, etc. But, I onl... Read more
You'll never do it younger

this is what my mother used to say whenever I'd say I was too old to do something new. Funny how I get older every year...and how I now seem to have been young then... I was just thinking about all the things I'd like to learn...if I could... Read more

last week was really awful...everything that went wrong at work was my fault, even when I wasn't there....it's rare that more than one manager at a time will be so stressed out that they feel they need to take it out on me, but that's what happe... Read more
anticipating the new year
Saturday, December 13, 2014      3 comments

this has been a very strange year indeed...(for all of the strange and negative things that happened, God has given me a blessing as well!) car totaled; new car requiring payments vacation; rather boring, but a relief from the monotony ... Read more

My Aunt sent me these quotes from Maya Angelou--thought you would enjoy them. In April, a few years back, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on televi... Read more
Thanksgiving
Friday, November 21, 2014      3 comments

My favorite holiday of the year. Growing up the "tradition" we started was to turn on the Thanksgiving Day Parade on tv and my mom and I would cook while the family watched the parade and snitched "tastes" of whatever we were making. Whe... Read more

A couple of days ago I dropped my debit card in a parking lot. I cancelled it, but it's going to take 10 days to get another one. First thing I find out today is that even though we worked unbelievably hard for our store's annual Christmas... Read more
kinda weird....
Thursday, November 13, 2014      5 comments

this feels a little strange, but the fact is, I do not know how I'm going to pay my bills this month because of all the medical bills that accrued. So, my brother set up a crowd funding account. I don't know what if anything will happen with i... Read more
A New Lease on Life
Wednesday, November 05, 2014      8 comments

Yesterday the surgeon gave me a clean bill of health! From death sentence to life! To God be the glory! What I've learned is that only He knows the number of my days. I take another breath only because He sustains me. So, this moment is a... Read more
