      @Thor we are going to get it way down south. Always a state of emergency when it snows here though. No plows or salt. Lol

    • reena replied 1 month ago

      We had a pretty dusting today. Feeling grateful for being home instead of the morning commute. Have a great Friday @Thor.

    • Greetings, Thor. Yep, finally time to make sure the snowblower is adjusted properly again.

    • Have a fab weekend! It’s happy sat in kiwi land. ❤️

    • Stay warm and safe @thor.

    Well said @Lee, Booze adds nothing but pain, and destruction. Keep rocking sober.

    • I have to continuously remind myself of this @Thor as I still want to turn to it for relief at times. But there is no relief. Only added pain and suffering. Always. Have a nice day!

    Greetings All, monday morning , back to it, sitting by the fire with my coffee, Spring is on my mind already, did some treadmill running
    On Saturday, Thinking about the 5K on the 4th of July already, Hope you all had a victorious weekend.
    Any tips on beating sugar addiction, Mrs Thor struggles with this, and asked for my help so I’m a…[Read more]

    • Morning there, @thor. Enjoying my coffee too. No fire, but candles are making it cozy. I wish I had some advice for the sugar addiction. It is not something I know a lot about. I am sure you be hearing from some experts soon. Have a great week ahead.

    • Hi Thor, some make treats with low glycemic sweetners. Personally, they effect me negatively so I have to use them sparingly. I am back on keto again for the billionth time lol for after holiday clean up. The keto desserts do help get you over the hump. Take care good to see you. @Thor.

    • Fruit smoothies are great. The fruit is sweet enough.

    • Good god, no; no tips on the sugar addiction. I am taking it one addiction at a time, though I am well aware of the link. But, I will say that energy balls are a great substitute and do satisfy the craving, likely because they have fruit in them: grind dates, oats, natural (no sugar) peanut butter, unsweetened coconut, and pecans or walnuts and…[Read more]

      • @Frog, I was taking tumeri c capsules and develop ed a rash. So bummed because it really helped my back pain. Never had the reaction before and wonder if I can take it in lower doses and whether that would even work?

        • Was there black pepper with the turmeric @robynb? That is often added for greater efficacy but some people react to black pepper. Alternatively it might be something else in the capsules; a filler or something. Might be worth experimenting with a different brand.

    • Hi Thor. I am really trying to just enjoy small bites to be savoured of a very good chocolate. That seems to help my sugar cravings. I have also discovered I really like expresso. The joy of small pleasures!

    • @Thor I have to treat sugar much the way I do alcohol. It is a trigger substance for me that I find difficult to moderate. It’s besy when I abstain altogether from added sugars and enjoy foods with naturally occurring sugars. A few good reads on this topic are Dr Pamela Peeke and Dr Robert Lustig.

    • The best advice someone gave me was to cut out one thing at a time. If you drink regular soda, try to cut that out, then maybe it’s sweets before bedtime. Or opt for a healthy snack that doesn’t send the blood sugar all over the place.

    • No tips on getting through it as I’m not particularly trying to quit, but I’ve noticed I crave sugar when I’m tired or when my gut is overfull and can’t digest well, or after carbs. When it’s digestion I specifically don’t want fruit for some reason….adding fibre would only make it worse I suppose….
      That at least gives me some clues about…[Read more]
