tasmanian-deviMonday was a beast.
When I stress – I eat yeast.

I’m on the FIT WAGON – I’m the BAND

but then again, LIFE. She is funny.
But I wouldn’t be attracted to being fat – again, if each pound yielded money.

Is a book I need in my low moments of yummies.

I didn’t eat the full SNACK SIZE bag of chips in the 24-hour day.
I ate a few and walked away. I came back several times during the day.
At the end of 24-hours a half bag of chips did lay.
So, um, I think I did… okay.

Photo Flipbook Slideshow MakerWhen I was in Art School I was religious in having Tea on Tuesdays. I’d go downtown (Dallas) and sip at artsy baristas in the presence of fellow artists, bongo’s, maraca’s and acoustic guitars. All on one accord, one vibe, and on an antioxidant high. I miss Art School.

hough Tea isn’t just for Tuesdays, any day is a good day to detox. So let’s have Tea more often. Shall we?

It Revs Metabolism
Sipping tea can in crease resting metabolic rate by 10 percent for two hours– enough to burn an extra 90 calories a day without lifting a finger. The credit goes to plant compounds that prevent the breakdown of a hormone (nor-adrenaline0 that triggers thermogenesis. the result: More calorie are burned instead of stored as fat.

It Improves Alertness
