A Good Tea

I love tea.

Green tea is my most favorite and this time of the year there is a special treat at the market.

It is by the Celestial Seasons brand and it is a green tea with all natural peppermint added to it.

It is called Candy Cane Lane.

Last year was the first time I tried it, and I was hooked.

I bought a couple of boxes this year, and it is a good thing I did.

When I was last at the market, I noticed they were all gone already.

The mint in this blend gives a cool, fresh feeling to the mouth.

It is a great blend, and if you can find a box, give it a try - it is delicious, and the green tea is filled with healthy antioxidants which are an added benefit!

Starting Anew

I have been very lax in recording my food intake and exercises in my daily journal.

I have been using the My Fitness Pal app on my iPhone and tablet to record all of that info for the past eight months.

But during the last couple of months I ran into a few health problems that have thrown me off track plus a death in the family didn't help with the emotional side.

Starting today I have been recording my food and exercise, and I hope to keep it up as I did in the past.

I am not happy with myself for letting it lapse, but sometimes things happen that one has no control over.

I am also trying something different in my diet to see if I can help the body feel better.

I have been more fortunate than most with my lupus, but sometimes it does get to me.

Will post more about my experiment as time goes on - fingers are crossed that it works!
