A Place for Everything


I am organizing my life today! De-cluttering, filing papers, and making lists.  October is going to be a big month for me: I have resolved to soothe my financial worries and I’m determined to fix my gut health.  So, today, I typed up lists of approved foods on the diet plan I have chosen, which is the Wahls Paleo Plus…

In Sickness and In Health.


It’s time to take my power back. It’s time to give myself permission to move forward. Enough of feeling powerless and hopeless. I wake up frustrated and feeling defeated. Also, I have been jealous of everyone’s everything lately, a sure sign that I’m feeling stuck and need to change things- drastically, if possible. Josh agreed to be with me in sickness and in health. Right now, it’s sickness but I want to go back to health.

I  have a confession to make. I’m sick of being gluten-free. But I have no choice, which sucks and there is nothing I can do about it. My whole life is thinking about food. Being gluten-free isn’t a lifestyle choice but a necessary part of my health. I became gluten-free a few years ago when I had food poisoning so…

Why I’ve Had to Give Up Coffee


Coffee. That single word can bring up so many memories- maybe of parents or grandparents drinking it, maybe of a special coffee date or maybe as recent as this morning when you were brewing your first cup. I know that my first thought when my alarm goes off is,”I can’t wait to have my coffee”. Coffee is more than a…

I’m Sick of Feeling Sick!!


You guys, I don’t know why I do this to myself. I get my health back on track and feel great, then I backslide. WHYYYYY?! I’m so sick of feeling sick. I did an 8 week stint of eating clean and slowly adding foods back into my diet.  I felt awesome. I wasn’t bloated, addicted to sugar, snacking mindlessly or…
