Google Searches: if you look, you will find

So you may or may not know this, but Google KNOWS.  Google knows what you search for and reports that data back to website owners.  It also follows where you click from one site to another, documenting your path.  It's actually kindof eerie how MUCH they know!!  So everyday I get a list of all the search words/phrases/gibberish that people searched for on Google who then ended up at my blog.  Most are normal, "no sugar sweet life" or "no sugar blog" or "no sugar recipes" etc... ...

Parenthood & Dieting are NOT for the Faint of Heart

Well, my faithful blog readers on this journey towards good health with I got nothin'.  No new recipe.  No motivational insight.  No photo documentation of amazing weekend meals.  Nothing except a simple phrase: Parenthood (and Dieting) are not for the faint of heart.  I feel something must be wrong with me personally, because I find it all so hard.  But, maybe it's just that others don't really talk about it.  It's like unwritten code that you can't talk about the ...

Roly Poly Amazement + {Veggie Garden Juice}

OK, first a confession.  I woke up in kind of a bad mood.  Which should be illegal on Saturdays.  I don't really know WHY I was in a bad mood, I just wasn't feeling particularly happy or excited about the day.  But, then I put on some tunes and danced in the living room with Babycakes to my favorite song... and all was well with my world again.  She and I played with markers, ie. ...

These are a few of my Favorite Things

I can't help but hum and want to start skipping and twirling through a field when I read those words :)  Am I crazy?  Maybe... But there's something about that song, those mountains, industriously crafting children's clothing from heavy curtain fabrics, etc... that just makes me smile :)              I thought for today's post I'd shake things up a bit and highlight a few of my favorite things (some food/kitchen related, some not). ...

Reboot Part 3: Grocery List & Menu

First, a picture of my loves: dear hubby and Babycakes being silly together.  Awwwww.  Well, let me tell you this - I am VERY excited about cherries and apples and bell peppers and tomatoes and carrots tomorrow!  I don't know how some people do the juicing for SIXTY days!!  Wowsers.  So, as you know, I'm heading into the final phase of the Reboot today.  Days 11 - 15 are similar to Days 1 - 5: a combination of eating limited fruits/veggies plus some juicing.  I do want to mention here that th ...
