Hello! This blog is being discontinued. With my NEW weight loss journey on the horizon, I felt it was only right to start with a brand new home. I hope to see you there!


No Sugar??? EWWW ... or Not???

Have you ever enjoyed a cup of tea, sans the (dangerous in excess, especially to addicts like moi) element of sugar? Well, I hadn't ... until tonight. And I must say... it was kinda tasty. Let me be real, the decision to omit it was initiated by late evening, burnt-out laziness ... lol ... I made a cup of tea, took it all the way upstairs - laid in bed only to discover that I left my sugar on the kitchen counter, and was NOT trying to go all the way back down to retrieve it ... (don't judge me, it's been a rough day! ... ;)

When we were kids my American grandmother would slap the salt out of my twin bro's hand, as he would grab it to sprinkle on his food, before even tasting it! I'm sure her reasoning had little to do with future health risks ... rather, her dishes were perfect and didn't "NEED NO D*MN SALT!!!" ... lol ... But it's just so common for me to grab other substances meant to enhance an item ... and then completely rip away the raw essence of it's flavor ... with over-condimentizing (yeah, I know that's not a word :P). I'm quick to over dress my salad ... and turn my coffees and teas into liquid deserts. So before I drop a cup of sugar into my next cup of tea 0_O ... from here on out ... I'll taste first!!! ... avoiding possible chunks of "empty/non filling" calories & POINTS in the process ... bonne nuit tout le monde!
