a girl’s gotta try

i am very well aware that there is no magic pill i can take that will make me skinny and healthy.

if there was an easy way to drop the weight – a miracle pill of some sort – i would have already sold my soul to the devil for it.

it took years to understand that exercise and eating healthy are the only sure fire things that work.
(although if you know someone who has some magic potion – do send it my way)

there’s been so much talk lately about raspberry ketone.
have you heard of this???

let me just state that this is not a weight loss promise pill – this is not a diet pill…
this is exactly as it sounds…an all natural pill…made from raspberries.

Dr. Oz talked about it on his show (i haven’t seen it, but just do a google search if you are curious) and this is what he says about it
Raspberry ketone is the primary aroma compound of red raspberries, and is a safe and healthy supplement with no side effects. This compound regulates adiponectin, a hormone that causes your body too boost metabolism. In turn, the fat within your cells gets broken up more effectively, helping your body burn fat faster and more efficiently. In order to get enough ketone to have an effect on the way your body burns its excess fat, you would need to consume 90 pounds of raspberries! But, just 100mg of the supplement per day is enough to get your body burning fat the way you want it to.

So yes…i will admit – curiosity got the best of me….and off i went tonight and purchased a 30 day supply.
it was rather expensive…it works out to almost a dollar a pill.but hey – what do i have to lose?  if i don’t lose a pound or two – so what.
if it actually gives this middle aged chick a boost in her metabolism…why not?

and if it does absolutely nothing????
well just call me loser.  and not in the good sense of the word 🙂
at least it smells and tastes lovely.

Have any of you tried this?  any stories – whether it worked or not?

Happy Bunny Day!!

i have been able to avoid all the Easter chocolates this year
i don’t know how – but i have.
i guess it’s because i am not a big sugar person to begin with
but come on – those Easter chocolates are absolutely delish!
mini eggs.
must i say more???

i’ve been able to roam the aisles at Shoppers – aisle after chocolaty aisle
and i haven’t even wrestled with the back and forth – the should i or shouldn’t i banter.
(i am however slightly obsessed with all the cute stuffed animals – for my niece and nephew of course)

So anyways – Easter is here this weekend…and i made it chocolate free!
there is no chocolate in my home – or at my desk – or in my car.
yay me.

i walked in to work this morning – and found this waiting for me on my desk.

well – i can’t say i didn’t try…and technically it isn’t chocolate

Happy Easter everyone!!!
