Fell Off The Sugar Wagon

Hello Divas!

So I recently talked about how I wanted to go on a sugar detox to help with my weight issues. I started off really well and was reducing the amount of sugar that I ate....then I spent the weekend with my best friend and that all went out the window!

I am reading a book called The Perfect 10 and it mentions eating whole foods in order to balance out your hormones so that you can lose weight effectively.

The book mentions that excess sugar in our diet is one of the biggest reasons that our weight loss efforts fail. There is a lot of detail about how sugar affects your diet and how much sugar there is in foods, even in ketchup!!!

I have to start my detox all over again because once you fall of the sugar wagon you begin to crave sugar all the time. It is going to take a few days to get my tolerance back down to where I can reduce my sugar intake but I am willing to work on it not only for my weight but also because sugar affects things like:

-diabetes risk
-skin aging

and a host of other issues that affect us all daily. Wish me luck and I hope that no one offers me cheesecake in the next few days.

Real Housewives Of Atlanta: Loving Kim and Kandi In 2012

Hello Divas!!!!

I know it is a few episodes into the season but I must say I am really LOVING two of the ladies on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

I love Kim this season because she seems so mellow. I did not like Kim at all in the beginning because of all her drama especially the
-big Poppa story
-Nene drama
-treating her assistant like a slave

I still don't like the way she treats her assistant but I think she has changed a little bit because we do not see so much of the bad behavior. Or maybe it is just editing!!!

Now that Kim is pregnant she seems to be so mellow and cool. I am not sure if it just Kroy or the baby but whatever it is I hope the effects last a long time. She still says sarcastic things at times but she is not annoying.

I am loving Kandi as well because I have always loved Kandi's free spirit. She speaks her mind and I don't see her as being as catty as some people.

Kandi is adorable and one of the more stable personalities on the show....mad love!!!!!
