Thursday, December 18, 2014      2 comments

I had to take a break from my juicing due to my acid reflux -- it was pretty much just white rice for a few days there. I'm feeling a lot better today and decided to segue back into juicing with a little bit of carrot and persimmon this morning... Read more

Thursday, December 11, 2014      3 comments

I'm starting to use my treat stones but it's funny, I'm not quite sure when to use them. For those who missed it earlier, my health coach has given me 5 pretty, colorful, smooth stones that I carry in my bag. Each one represents a "treat". Wh... Read more

I'm going to re-post part of a blog I wrote on 2/2/13 because it is equally apropos today: "Well, I'm on a positive streak which is good. I've logged in and tracked for 8 days. I've met and exceeded my water goals for 8 days. . . As we kno... Read more

Friday, December 05, 2014      6 comments

Non-scale victory: my blood pressure is 109/54! I was terrified that with my stress and weight gain this year, I would see my BP rise as high blood pressure is very common in my family. Not for me! I feel like I've been given a second chance -- ... Read more
