My usual drip coffee maker isn't working well so it's time for a replacement. I was "googling" coffee makers and found that most of this style contain BPAs! Really??? Oh my goodness...even things we are soooooooooooooo familiar with need to be re-thought. So now I'm looking for a ceramic cone or a Melitta Coffee Maker, Porcelain 6 Cup Pour- Over Brewer. It seems that, other than a french press, this is one of the only coffee brewers that does not contain plastic which comes in contact with the coffee/water!
Really? Who approves these items when they first come on the market??? I seem to remember Corning used to make an all-glass coffee maker that sat on the stove but needed to have a wire thingy between the pot and the burner...what happened to them? In the name of "fast" I think the world may be sacrificing health. So much cancer???!!!! So much cancer???!!!! Coffee brewed and stored in plastic. Plastic hoses on our water supply. Milk in plastic bags and bottles. Food in plastic, plastic, plastic, plastic! Hey, now they even have veggie "steamers" that are contained in PLASTIC and go in our MICRO-WAVES! I heard 3 oncologists being interviewed and each was asked "How do you keep your family safe from cancer?" All 3 replied "NO PLASTICS IN THE MICROWAVE"! Really??? And now food manufacturers are trying to get us to put more plastic in our microwave in the name of health and convenience. What started this rant??? Oh yes I remember... I need a new coffee maker. Hope everyone has the healthiest, happiest day possible.

I'm so looking forward to cooking supper by the water tonight. The BEST part about this is that I'm planning lean meat, salad and grilled mushrooms. Gosh, life is good when our emotions agree with our brains!!! No fighting...just peace.
And I want to thank the universe for a good night's sleep last night too, as it was the first one in a week! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, life is good.....
Hoping your Sunday is good too.

Thank you to all my SparkFriends who shouted out encouragement as I "held on tight" yesterday. I did. Yesterday was a day of roller coaster emotions and "stuff" and I just held on tight.
I think that's the key. Things happen in every life. Ups and downs and some days more downs than I think I can handle. But really, if I just "hold on tight" today passes to yesterday without any more grief than necessary.
So there was no over-eating at my house yesterday. There was good exercising. There was smiling in spite of "grief and hurt" and today I'm grateful...very, very grateful!!!

So, Monday's are weigh in days for me, however I did step on the scales this morning b/c the mirror told me there had been a change in my body. And yep, the scales were down 2 more lbs from Monday. Now, not knowing if it were cheating to post my weight again this week, I asked for advice from someone we trust and she said, Yep, you got it, you take it today!
So I'm woo hoo-ing and quietly happy...and onward I go friends. Onward I go.

I've never had Monday as my weigh in day before. You know what??? It makes the weekend sooooooooooooooo much easier. If I want the scales to be down on Monday, I have to eat "on-plan" all weekend long. There's no stress about what little extra bits I can eat, b/c there are NO extra little bits I can eat if I want to lose this weight for the last time, and I do. I will do whatever it takes to get back to my goal weight and stay there.
Yep, it's Mondays for me forevermore!!!
