If so, then you’re probably addicted.
Smartphones hook people by using the same neural pathways as gambling and drugs.
Today I invite you to at least think about how awesome life would be if you weren’t so attached to your favorite candies, cookies and chips.
Even if the idea feels overpowering to you now, just envision how you’d feel if you weren’t imprisoned by your dangerous habit.

I’m so eager to serve you this year, but, alas, I’m still home recovering from pneumonia, as I shared here when I shared my friend Angelika’s Chicken Bone Broth recipe.
Although I’m a lot better, I still get weak quickly and easily. And I still don’t have any stamina to work out. Please note that next I got bronchitis, too!
What’s weird is that don’t fit into the at-risk categories so why did I get so darn sick?
Often, I unintentionally witness people in the middle of their unhealthy habits.
What’s wrong with this picture?
Note from Connie: Since it’s winter, often cold in most parts of the world, and I’m home sick with pneumonia, my friend Angelika Ilina — founder of the Love On the Table blog for health-conscious foodies — was kind enough to share her tasty, easy, low-carb version of her Grandma’s Chicken Broth Recipe. As you’ll note, this recipe contains no gluten-filled noodles.
Here’s Angelika: (more…)
Santa Claus may embody cheerful generosity and innate goodness, but the beloved, jovial character has some serious health problems.
To begin, he is a huge sugar addict.
At every house he visits, the beloved gift-giver noshes on sugary, gluten-filled cookies that well-intentioned parents left for him.
Come to think of it, aren’t millions of us like Santa?
No wonder Santa can’t resist the sweet stuff.
Just think of Santa’s plight.
Do you, like millions, sit for hours and hours?
Up until yesterday, I was one of those, who sat far too much.
You see, I’m writing this blog post while swaying my hips, doing squats, balancing on one foot after another, and/or dancing to cool music in front of my new awesome Standing Desk in my new place.
No more sitting for hours on end while in the flow writing books, talks and blog posts.
You see, for all my intentions to be healthy and active, I’ve been naughty for years.
All that sitting has injured my back twice — we’re talking major pain — while I’ve been on deadline for my books, Sugar Shock and Beyond Sugar Shock.
Do you sit a lot as I did until quite recently?
If so, you need to learn about the deadly consequences.
Have you had some tough times recently?

Please note that I need to take some time off for a while, because after six long years, I’m finally moving into my own place.
How nice it feels not to feel more settled.
As I’ve shared previously, in late 2012, when my Mom became terminally ill, I moved across country to be with her.
Since then, I’ve moved several times so I’m sooooo relieved to finally find a home.
See you soon when I’ll be able to serve you better.
