Whole Food Diary: April 23-27


I was concerned that eating more mindfully would take a long time to make a difference, but changes are happening!! I wake up easier in the morning, my nails are stronger, and my bowel movements are normal. I know it seems like TMI but bowel movements are so important! That’s how we get rid of toxins and how your gut…

April Eating Challenge: 10 Food Guidelines


Food! Eating! As human animals, we can’t escape it. My mom always jokes that she wishes that we could just take a pill every day, instead of thinking of meals three times a day. I like food, especially comfort food on long days or during bad weather and there has been a lot of that lately. We are coming out…

How I Stay Motivated To Workout.


What motivates me to workout is not what you think. Yeah, I want more energy and I want to look good in clothing…but those two things don’t keep me motivated long-term. They should. But they don’t. If I rely on that, well, I find myself on the couch, eating gluten-free snacks and crocheting instead of going downstairs to lift weights…

And The Universe Pulled Me….Believing In Signs


Do you believe in signs? I never used to, but I do now. I think things changed when I started to listen to what many call their “gut instinct” or “following your heart”. I would feel this panicky need to do something, or a pang of jealousy over someone’s accomplishment, or start seeing the same word over and over and…

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…

The Thing I Did to Help My Gut.


As you know, my gut was in bad shape. I think the combination of taking maca powder for too long (you can read about that here) and then the food poisoning that happened a year or two later didn’t help. My eagerness to take antibiotics for every ailment stripped my gut lining and the food poisoning that lasted 7-9 days…

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! My left eye went so red and puffed up so large that I could barely see. I went to the doctor and she said…

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. There are a lot of other symptoms, as well, that cross the line from “discomfort” in to “chronic illness”. I have leaky…

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…
