I have never given up anything for Lent before, so I think I will start with a bang. I am going to try and give up MOST processed foods. There will be a few exceptions, like Mineral Water, Wine, Beer, and Alcohol in moderation, Organic Dark Chocolate, and processed foods that provide a health benefit to compensate for it not being in it's original state. I can have some condiments like Mayo and Mustard and Salsa, but if I can make it from scratch, that is what I will try and do. Canned and frozen meats and vegetables are also ok, though if I can get organic and fresh, that is preferred. ABSOLUTELY NO white flour, HFCS, white rice, white pasta. ABSOLUTELY no artificial ingredients or chemical names in the product! I also plan to limit my carbs a bit - not go Atkins crazy, but still try and find something besides a starch to round out my meals until Easter.

Wish me luck ... and send me hopeful wishes that the scale really shows the changes!

Laugh at the Irony - #1

I could choose to have this piss me off or choose to laugh it off:

  • Remembering I need to get gas for my car just as I pull in my driveway at home.

My New Favorite Thing

This came in the mail yesterday from Crabtree and Evelyn.

Love it!

The scent reminds me of the first time I smelled Origin's Ginger Souffle, and the OH! factor was similar.

Will post more later on its "last-ability"

Trying again

I have treated my blog here for the most part like an odd embarrassing relative - ignoring it most of the time and feeling awkward and uncomfortable the times that I do interact.

Today I intend to change that, lets hope this is not another paver stone to hell!

More Later...............
