Turkey Induced Stupor

I'm home now, with a full stomach and leftovers galore.

Happily I note that all the important fud groups were represented at dinner...

The turkey group, of course,
The stuffing group,
The gravy group,
The mashed potato group.
The green bean casserole group with the crunchy fried onions,
The candied yam group,
The cranberry relish group,
The dinner roll group,
And last of all...The pumpkin cobbler group with homemade whipped cream.


Time to hit the sack!!! zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.................................................

I hope your turkey day was swell as well!!!

This is actually a picture of my Christmas turkey. I forgot to take pictures tonight : .)

go ahead, be bold wid it

I recently did another detox, so that means that I didn't have carbs, refined sugar, or dairy for three weeks. Continuing along in the same vein, I've been avoiding all those same foods for the past two weeks, but lately, I've been salivating over the thought of a chai or green tea latte. Last night, I decided to have one as a treat. I did my grocery shopping at Safeway, went to the Starbucks inside. Loaded the groceries into the car and closed the trunk on 16 ounces of non-fat milk, matcha tea powder and melon syrup. I guess it was a sign. A sign of what, you ask? A sign that I'm still not supposed to have sugar or dairy. I was torn between going back to Starbucks after dinner or blowing it off completely.

I guess the good thing was the barista didn't put in enough or maybe any melon syrup, so the drink didn't taste very good.

After this morning's run, I decided to try again and went to Starbucks to get a hot drink. I'm happy/sad to say that I'm not enjoying it. I guess I've finally succeeded in breaking my sugar addiction. The cup is cool however. I love the holidays at Starbucks : .)

Mad - On the way from Rancho to Starbucks, I turned on the radio and thought, "Continuing on with the experiment, what will be playing on 99.7?" heeeeeeeee! SEXY BACK!!!! Okay, I admit, I'm diggin' the song too, but we both know that I've always loved club traxs.
