I feel compelled to post every page. I am having a blast reading "Skinny Bitch"!
I am liking this "Skinny Bitch" I will probably have it read by tomorrow. Chapter 1 is about giving up the vices. And she tells it like a "Skinny Bitch" would. LOL.
The book is part of my Eve2Easter goal. Drinking less coffee and replacing it with tea is my NSV goal for Spring Chick Challenge.
I like caffeine in my tea for the reasons that SB is witching about. I like the jolt! Home brewed and using the sucralose Walmart Brand because it is cheaper than the Splenda I used to get. (I think there is some hidden demon in that) I fear it is BLOAT. So I looked it up...
"Sucralose-Cons" from Medicinenet.com specifically mentions bloating.
"11 Sucralose Side Effects "From 3 Fat chicks on a diet blog.
"Scientific studies have discovered some risks associated with Splenda, but only at very high dosages. One study on rats found that it caused the thynmus to shrink, but only if the rats ate the equivalent of 17,200 packets of Splenda every day for a month. At the FDA’s Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) level for Splenda, which is the rough equivalent of about 15 cans of diet soda a day, no risks were found."(Then comes in my quick to mistrust anything to do with "the Feds" syndrome that I have mentioned. LOL)
Sucralose has a dot org website pacifying any Conspiracy Theorist with a list of "Myth" answering.
(Ritual De Lo Habitual is not just a "Jane's Addiction" Album LOL).
We all experienced the rituals of food during the Holidays. There is also the ritual of the drink as soon as we wake up-that cup of Jo. You can smell it, you can feel the warmth and now you can suck on a frothy smooth creamy flavored one from your favorite Barista. It is a way of life. Even as a child, before drinking coffee at all, the house smelled of coffee in the morning filling the senses with "the smell of morning".
I liked how she wrote "if you need it, give it up". Yeah like how big is your mug or your car mug? When I was younger, I had a 32 ouncer. Now a days, I have limited my coffee to 2-3 cups daily, but that fancy smancy flavored creamer has 2 carbs per tablespoon. And it takes 2 tablespoons to make the coffee right maybe 3...Which was the primary reason for my wanting to replace it.. Since our Sam's Club card expired, no DaVinci Sugar Free Syrup. Why am I dwelling so much on a drink? A drink.
I joked in life that I was a Coffee Under-achiever...
So I have voice to text (v2t) on my phone and when I was responding to Princess Dieter's last comment on my blog, I thought that if I get it in email, it would still post it to comment if I replied to it. No.
Funny thing is that when I wanted to post that "he is listening" the v2t typed out something like "And he lived in Antioch". That was not even near what I had said and the word Antioch reminds me of some biblical history I read.. When I tried to correct it, saying "he is listening" again, the v2t typed "he is coming".
I was at the 99cent store trying to get the v2t in before shopping showed my daughter. I told her my android is sending me messages from God. LOL.
No seriously. Antioch is one if not THE first built churches when the Apostles set out to spread Christianity..Check it out on google search, How could my phone type such a specific name in place of the words "he is listening"? I see it that "he is texting" as well.
