Livin' on a Prayer

Thanks for checking in on me EC. I am hanging in there but I have had a rough go lately. I don't have the energy to explain everything right now but I will in time. I will post again soon. Lots of love to all of you!

Sweetie Darling

I have been a long time Splenda user. I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 1997 and have used artificial sweeteners forever but I was worried about all the chemicals. Well, I discovered a new product from C&H Light.

From their website: C&H® Light is an all natural pure cane sugar and stevia blend with half the calories of sugar. That's over a 350-calorie savings in each cup! By blending pure cane C&H® Sugar with a naturally sweet extract from the stevia plant, we have created a delicious sweetener with no artificial ingredients. C&H® Light is the ideal sweetener — a perfect sweet taste and half the calories of sugar!

I like it and feel better using it because there are no chemicals. It tastes good and I barely could tell the difference from the Spenda.

Until next time...

P.S. one of the Kindergarten girls calls me Sweetie Darling :-)

Tools That Help

Well I had the Fitbit on but did not track my food. I waited too long to eat dinner and ate too much Gnocchi. It was really good though.

I have had trial and error with the different cat products. One that has been a true life saver is the Litter Genie. It works like a Diaper Genie but for kitties. Instead of schlepping kitty stuff to the garbage daily, I can do it weekly. When it was just Bogey it would be two weeks!

I promise I'm not becoming a cat blog! I just thought I would share the product that is helped me so much lately. Until next time...

Full House

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a decent break. Mine was not what I expected but it is what it is. As a result of one of the occurrences, I am care taking two kitties. Their names are Otto (gray) and Cindy (black) They are 6 months old and Bogey is 9 months. The first few days were chaos but they seemed to have settled down a little. Could be because Bogey has a patch of fur missing from them scuffling. I can't keep them permanently but I will keep them until we figure out what to do with them. They are siblings so we want to keep them together.

My mom is doing okay. I don't think their will be much improvement with her health but she is getting physically stronger everyday.

I am wearing my Fitbit and logging food again. My successful weight loss happens when I'm tracking and since I'm back to work, I'm back to walking 5 miles a day. I gained 5 lbs. during the holidays but I have no doubt it will come back off again now that my schedule is semi normal again.

I'm really hoping to post more regularly. I do much better when I blog both mentally and physically. Plus I totally miss blog land and reading about you all. Until next time...
