It's Monday. Not just any Monday... the Monday after daylight-savings... UGH! It was so hard to pry myself out of bed this morning! I did it, though I was about 10 minutes late to work. And yet, I was still the first one here. It seems everyone had a hard time getting out of bed this Monday morning! Janetha (a new blogger I found this weekend!) created a survey on her blog, and provided a template so others could copy it to their own blogs. ... Read more » about Getting to know me + Power Yogurt

Each day as I would write my next blog post, it just didn't feel completely right. The structure was good. The key elements were there; but it was missing something.

A reader of my blog recently asked me: "How'd you lose that first 40 pounds?" For me the keys were: smaller portions and the addition of veggie juice(s) to my diet. Yes, some exercise here and there too, but those two changes helped me immensely. I haven't juiced in awhile, so I thought I'd make some this weekend and post up the recipe. My two favorites are: Mean Green (full of kale, spinach, parsley, lemon, & apple) and Homemade V8 (recipe to follow). Just LOOK at how pretty and colorful that bowl full of veggies is!! ...
