It’s Summer! Time To Use That Fitness Tracker.


Hey everyone. I’ve been decluttering and outside with the kids a lot lately, so we have been pretty busy. Being outside has been put on hold for a bit since I am dealing with seasonal allergies!

I’m on Day 5 of The Gut Makeover!


I have a hard-working husband, an anxious kid, a sensitive kid and a neurotic cat (she likes being slapped on the butt, (seriously!), which makes me wonder about her past life, but more on another time).

The Gut Makeover


I’m almost finished this book: I’m impressed with it so far and ready to try it in June. I am sick of always feeling crampy and bloated after meals. I feel tired, have horrible acne and sore joints.

My Pants Are Tight, I’ve Gained Weight….and Perspective


Omigosh, my pants are tight. I’ve gained weight. Not a big deal….just have to get back on track. Or at least, that is what I am telling myself. We read a great kid’s book the other day, (hang with me, it ties in) called Virginia Wolf. It perfectly explains the “doldrums”, as the author puts it. I felt that last…

Survival Mode


Remember the Wizard of Oz? It is one of my son’s favourite movies. You know when Dorothy is trying to figure herself out and she gets so stressed out that she dreams of Oz? Yeah, that’s my life in a nutshell right now. I’ve been so stressed that I am in survival mode. I just go from one obligation to…
