Mission Accomplished

April 18, 2014

March, 30, 2014 marked the end of my 28 day journey on the Fast Metabolism Diet. I lost a total of 7 pounds and while that might not seem significant to most it made a tremendous difference in the way I feel and the way my clothes fit. The more you weigh the more you […]

What I think about Weight Watchers….

March 28, 2014

I’m nearing the home stretch of the Fast Metabolism Diet as I’m in the fourth and final week, but I’m not sure where I go from here.  The jury is still out on this this diet because it’s said to take 28 days to repair the metabolism but I won’t know how effective it is […]

BAC Challenge # 4 – Is Your House In Order?

February 5, 2014

This week I have been repeatedly reminded that life is not promised to any of us. The latest reminder was when a plane crashed feet away from a crowded YMCA and Grocery Store in Bellevue, TN. No one is promised tomorrow and I don’t know about you but I want to make sure my family […]

Are You Drinking Your Calories?

January 3, 2014

Recently, I was speaking to a friend about eliminating sodas from our diets. They said that they had switched to diet soda instead of regular soda because it was better. I knowingly just smiled and didn’t say a word. I didn’t want to discourage them at the time and I also didn’t really have my […]
