I keep trying to like blogland again but it feels like a giant snore - help!

Facebook has taken over my life.


Anybody want to friend me, send me a message at sparkleberrygirl@gmail.com and we'll take it from there. Trust me, it's much more interesting than here!

Maybe I'm just bored with my blog.

It's been looking the same for ages - blah!

If anyone could recommend a good, fast and cheap coder who would give this page a facelift, please be my guest. I'm inspired but this place brings me down for some reason... it feels worn out, know what I mean?

Time for change :-)


We're on Week 3 of our new way of eating and it's going great - much easier than I thought it would be. We just cut out most simple carbs (breads, cereals, pasta, etc), processed foods and junk food / desserts / snacks. Filling up on lean proteins, fruits and veggies - and wow, the pounds are melting off, I didn't expect that :-o

No calorie counting, just making smarter choices on what we eat. The best part is not being hungry all the time, no carb crashes or hypoglycemic attacks. Mind you, the detox period lasted a good 5 days and I was sick as a dog from morning 'til night - it was awful. Totally my fault though, I had been stuffing myself good n'proper with terrible junk food for too long, uggh.

When it gets to the point where you feel gross eating what's in your hand or on your plate, it's time to make some changes. I now try to avoid eating things that are made of ingredients I can't even pronounce!

Looking forward to grocery shopping tomorrow :-)

Incidently - shopping has become a bit depressing. There are entire aisles that contain absolutely nothing that I want to put in my body anymore, how terrible is that? Rows and rows of junky processed crappy foods, it's mind blowing. No wonder the industrialised countries are obese.


Time for bed.

Your diet changes sound great...I have been needing to change my ways too. (getting too thick in the waist and it is NOT melting off with working out!!!)
Take care,

Yeah it's amazing how junk food is like a drug, that when you stop eating it you go through a withdrawal period like you would with any other drug. Keep up the good work, I swear you will keep feel better!

Nooo don't give up to Facebook!

Nothing wrong with FB, but it's not as personalised as your lovely blog!

Oh dear - this is bad news indeed. You can't get bored with your blog. I will so miss your regular posts. My coffee wouldn't be the same without you.

Good news about your new eating routine. I love everything you are doing! Awesome...

How are the chickens? Everything okay with them?

You are such an artist woman - I know you will think of just the right thing to keep you motivated.

It is the easiest way to lose weight. I did it years ago and need to do it again. Once you stop eating carbs you don't crave carbs.
Good for you. I will follow you on Facebook but I don't go on very often. I still like blogging and Pinterest is something new that I am in love with!

I've been trying to eat like you, too. I still allow myself the occasional burger when I want it, but it's amazing how little I want that kind of foo anymore.

However, some days I just don't want any more fish! I'm gonna grow gills. :)
