I love waking up to a hot cup of chai (tea)! I'm so glad I quit coffee. But, I'm still getting caffeine. So as soon as my samplers of chai run out, I'll be going to herbal tea, which just won't be the same. I use the herbal tea to help me go bac... Read more

I LOVE my new fitbit! It reminds me to get up and move and tells me how many steps to aim for each time it reminds me in order to stay on track. Then it tells me when I have reached my goal. I don't always listen to it, but I try to. I'm s... Read more

How do you stay on track and on your program!? I think about the end results and sometimes that is just not enough. I actually bought sugar cookies and ate about 4 of them yesterday. I felt so sick afterwards, because I'm quitting sugar and have... Read more
