    Eating Better W/no Time For It

    I buy lean pockets and those Lean Quisine paninis (chicken club rocks) for no time at all lunches.  And for quick dinners I buy those Butoni chicken tortolinis and the Lite alfredo sauce.  Dinner is ready in like 15 minutes.  I also make ground beef on the weekend...

    Not Good

    I don't take very good care of myself. I don't drink enough water and I am almost dehydrated. Also, I don't eat very well because my medicine takes away my appetite. And I also have very low blood sugar and get dizzy a lot.

    I never really took very good care of myself. Physical appearance - my own or that of others - never phased me. I never quite saw the point of it all. Who gives a ****, right? I used to laugh at other women for going through so much effort just to look good. Spending needless...

    Feeling Beautiful Again!

    After a few years of trauma and grief I emerge a bit worse for the wear. Now is the time to start taking care of myself again. I was taught that wanting to look better is vanity, but in the Bible Esther spent a year fixing herself up for the King. She used lotions and creams and...
