Sweet Cheeks HQ 3.0 AND 4.0!

Orange Chicken

There’s something big happening at Sweet Cheeks HQ.  I mean HUGE.  It’s a shift in the Sweet Cheeks universe.  Shirley and I will be moving into our own separate apartments.  Bam!  Yup, that’s it.  After 3 years of sharing a kitchen, we’ll actually each have our own. (Well, Shirley will be sharing hers with Ginger!) [...]

Guess what Lefty did??


As Righty geared up for her Whole Life Challenge, I, Lefty, decided to take it down a notch and indulge in some sugar.  As most of you know, this was my first time eating sugar since last year.  I was so afraid I was going to get a piercing headache or wake up with a [...]

Happy Valentines Day

Bittersweet Game Plan

Steak and Eggs

It’s February 3rd and this Cheek has still not eaten any sugar!  I’ve thought about it, but that’s as close as I’ve come.  I know a massive sugar hangover is on the other side of that sweet little moment of sugar pleasure.  Righty has suggested that I don’t waste my sugar on any junk ie. [...]

The end of 2013 Sugar Free Challenge

Kale Salad

  Today is the day, and much like lefty, I’m a little unsure and nervous about tomorrow. You would think I would be celebrating, but instead I feel more of a burden. The whole reason we had the no sugar challenge was because Lefty and I had ODed on sugar. The holiday brought it on [...]
