So, I wasn't as fortunate as I had hoped to be. I caught the darn crud! It started last Sunday; I woke up with a sore throat. I immediately started my home-remedy and thought I had beat it but, that missed dose either made all the difference... Read more

My last blog was day 1 of no sweets. I made it all day long without any...even resisted the urge to indulge in brownies that were brought in by a co-worker. All was well until that night when I took one bite of my husband's ice cream. I had t... Read more

If you have read my previous blogs, you know that I started the 21-day fix program last November. We started out as a group of five but it dwindled down to just two. My friend and I are pretty consistent with a few exceptions. For the most pa... Read more
