Moderating Your Blood Sugar Levels I just heard this morning how necessary it is to keep your blood sugar from dipping if you're trying to manage your appetite. It seems that even a small dip in your levels can start a cycle of over eating. Your blood sugar can dip if you prolong eating due to of lack of time or being in a place to eat.It's suggested that you should carry with you an energy bar or the type of food you need for those quick pick-me-ups, especially if you're out shopping. And in this season, aren't we all shopping at the malls?What a great piece of advice. I guess you hear what you need to hear, and only when you need to hear it. For me, 2009 means a renewed and successful effort to drop pounds! And like my coach, Joe Ramirez of Women's Fitness Boot Camp, has been telling ...

A Great Christmas Story This isn't my work, it's one of thse emails that goes around. But it was so cute that I thought you all might enjoy t, too. ~ A Baby's Hug ~      We were the only family with children in the restaurant. I sat Erik in a high chair and noticed everyone was quietly sitting and talking. Suddenly, Erik squealed with glee and said, 'Hi.' He pounded his chubby baby hands on the high chair tray. His eyes were crinkled in laughter and his mouth was bared in a toothless grin, as he wriggled and giggled with merriment.     I looked around and saw the source of his merriment. It was a man whose pants were baggy with a zipper at half-mast and his toes poked out of would-be shoes. His shirt was dirty and his hair was uncombed and unwashed. His whiskers were too short to be cal...

Notes on a Recent Listing (or Getting to Know My Work): The property is located in Monument, CO. I was called into the listing by a friend that was getting out of the business. He'd already sold them a townhome, which was downsizing for them. When I first met the clients, the house was almost empty. They had a few things in it and as we got to know each other and toured the house, I gave them tips on staging the property. Inside of a week, they had everything ready to go. I immediately put it on both broker tours that I regularly participate in. And both groups had comments about what they thought would make the home sell more quickly. I had the best clients ever. They took all the suggestions and implement changes are they could. We got had two showings and our first offer! Wow! Great ...

Plesae take a moment to view this video of my new listing in Moument,Colorado. The home will be complete mid to late September. The views are spectacular, and the Pine Hills sub is a great place to relocate, each lot there must be at least 2 acres so you know that your neighbor will not be on top of you like the homes in east Monument.

I have been at this restaurant numerous times and I love the patio.  If you can make it there on a nice day, not too hot with a nice breeze, It is best enjoyed with you friends or a girls night out for chips and dip ad of course a pitcher of margaritas.  You will enjoy the views and the small town atmosphere from the patio.  The food is a B, a great local hangout.
