Galveston: Avenue O Bed and Breakfast

I ended up passing on the mountains this weekend to get some girlfriend time from my Texas girlfriends.

So, I did what all great women have the prerogative […]

Day 2: Sugar Detox – Sweet Dreams

So I made it through yesterday with no sugar! I was thrilled. The cravings did indeed latch hold of me around 3 PM, but I drank some tea and ate some grapefruit. They passed thankfully. I do pretty good once I get home. It’s the work eating that gets me. I felt like a rock […]

The Ice Cream Fix

I came home today, and all I could think about was ice cream. I haven’t been eating sugar, so it was kind of weird that I was fixated on it, but I was really obsessing. I had been obsessing about it last night, but I managed to keep myself busy enough not to cave. I […]

Taste Test Completed: Cold Brew is a Winner!

At 5 PM yesterday, I added my 4.5 ounces of Starbucks French Roast coffee (purchased at Marshall’s for $6.19) to my 3.5 cups of bottled water in my handy-dandy french press that I’ve had forever. The first lesson is learned is to put the coffee in first. I put the water in first to make […]
