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.  I am sick of anxiety about money. I am also sick of being physically sick.  So, today, I typed up lists of…

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.

It Happens Sometimes When the Weather Changes.


Today was not great. It wasn’t a good day, health-wise. Sometimes I have to adjust my whole day around my health and it’s really frustrating.  The weather called for rain- the perfect day to clean! Right? Wrong. My health tanks sometimes when the weather changes. When I woke up, I had so many plans to be productive…. Instead, I woke…

Surviving Gluten-Free Life (Not a Love Story)


Let’s be honest. Being gluten-free is hard. Being gluten-free, dairy-free, and gut-friendly is harder! I know it’s easier than 10 years ago, but I still have little tantrums about it.  I’m sick of buying “all” produce, not being able to have a burger on a gluten-filled bun, and ALWAYS PAYING MORE. Not fair that I have to pay extra for…

When You Become Gluten-Free & Your Whole Life is Food.


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…

The Gut Makeover, Round 2.


Happy January everyone! Did you make New Year’s Resolutions? How are you doing at keeping them? I made promises to myself to make some big life changes, out of necessity to my physical health and mental sanity.  This very important motivation made it easy for me to stick to my goals, so far. These last couple of weeks have been…

Leaky Gut and Flaky Eyes: How It Happened to Me and What I’m Doing About It.


My health has slowly been improving this year. I suddenly decided I didn’t want to sit on my hands and just accept that my health would never be great again. As you know from previous posts, I just coasted through life eating whatever I wanted and exercising sporadically until my late twenties. Not because I was naturally skinny and comfortable…

Why I Am Suddenly So Concerned with Giving My Kids Healthy Breakfasts.


I had an epiphany this weekend. My kids came up twenty minutes after finishing breakfast and they were hungry already….and crabby.  I asked Isabella what she had eaten and she said, ‘an apple sauce and some cereal without milk’. I realized that what she had eaten was basically a sugar bomb and it was no wonder she was hungry! Now that…
