Not Your Grandma’s Shabbat Dinner Table…

3 Comments 16 April 2010

Not that there is anything wrong with my grandma, there is no chicer woman on earth and I steal almost all of my ideas from her…. But, this modern table setting is not quite her type!!! First, I used a scrap of fabric that I had left over from my bulletin board project, and I threw it on the table… I like that it doesnt cover the entire table‘s width, and that the front and back edges are cut not sewn. I think it adds to the flavor!

I used my basic white dishes instead of my “fancy” ones, but I mixed them with the gold silverware that I normally use with my other set. (Sometimes a basic white dish is the best thing you can ask for! It may be boring, but it allows you to be so much more creative with your accessories!)

I used black linen napkins from Conran Shop in lucite napkin rings, and the woven wicker placemats were from Pottery Barn. I love the wicker placemats, they add texture to the table.  My kiddush cup was once part of a set that I bought at an antique store, but alas, it is the lone survivor!

I used a gold leaf tray from home goods for my challah… The two black studded vases are also from home goods. The center one is from Ikea and I think it is probably the best $49 dollars I ever spent!

Of course, I will be adding little bowls of olives, and some of my meal to the table so I dont want to clutter it up before they even get here. I will be moving the big vase to the server when we sit at the table.

What do you think? I think its pretty cool!!!

Day 8 of Detoxing!

No Comments 16 April 2010

Hi Detoxers!

We made it thru a week Sugar Free!
Are you starting to feel lighter? Maybe have a little bit more energy?

Some notes: resist the urge to weigh yourself! Weighing yourself misses the point on where we are going with this. I know many of us want to shed pounds, but if we rely on the numbers of the scale to dictate to us how we should feel-we then will not be able to learn how to be in tune with how our bodies feel. Some days we wake up feeling awesome, energetic.  We may feel like we for sure dropped 2lbs. though the scale says we gained a half a pound. Our emotions then go up and down. There is enough stress in our lives that can send our emotions on a roller coaster. Its best not to self inflict it.
As a group, we weighed ourselves on Day 1 of Sugar Detox. We will weigh ourselves again on Day 30.
Let’s take a group promise to stay off the scale.
Say:” I will not weigh myself until Day 30 of the Challenge”

I hope you benefited from last nights e mail. Last April, I learned that my sugar addiction was a true addiction and not about a lack of will power. That’s what gave me the DESIRE to kick the habit.

Can you send me YOUR personal stories? We would all love to read some. When you send me an email please include if you allow me to reprint it and how I should sign it, your name or anonymous.

Below is a comment from our first brave sharer!

“As a person who suffers from migraine and tension headaches often, I’m happy to report that for 8 days I have not had any headaches! I’m actually shocked and amazed at myself, how I’m even doing it.
I am (hopefully was) totally addicted and fully dependent on sugar, sugar substitutes and anything sweet.
Nothing was ever too sweet for me. When my kids would put something down and not eat it bc they said it was too sweet for them, I picked it up and ate it. I’m laughing at my breakfast this morning (oatmeal with strawberries and blueberry with a spoon of agave).
In my usual oatmeal, I would put 2 sweet n lows, brown sugar and pancake syrup! It sounds gross, but it really wasn’t too sweet for me. I hope to continue to be strong, and not have these cravings and desires anymore.
Sari- i was asking you on the holidays, “so if you can’t eat this, and you can’t eat that then, what can you eat?.”
I’m eating, and I’m satisfied, and I’m full…I just hope I lose weight with this :)

P.S. I made a huge batch of rice krispie treats for shabbat. And I did not have even one crumb of it! Its one of my many sweet favorites…I’m very proud!” Olga Schweky

Thank you Olga!
