OMG! We DID It!!

Yesterday marked the FINAL day of the 28-Day Re-Integration Phase of the Kick the Sugar Challenge. Those of us who did it went from being called “Challengers” to being called “Warriors”, and believe me, we deserve that title. Those of us who stuck it out for all 56 Days since the beginning of the Challenge have now…

Revealing More Of Myself… (and a SINFUL Dessert!)

I was honoured last week to be interviewed by UK blogger Olivia Pennelle, a fellow sober living lover and passionate healthy foodie.

Today is Tuesday February 16th, 2016. No big deal. Just another Tuesday.
