I have to rant a little, but I promise there's a reason - a purpose behind it. I've never understood why certain standards were set, particularly for young adults. (For this topic, I'm categorizing young adults as 16-26 years old.) This idea of living a perfect life, even if a general set of standards is … Continue reading What are we teaching….
You know when you start a new chapter in your life and there is excitement, fear, anxiety and stress all coming and going? Sometimes it's a new job, new town, facing old demons, etc. For me, that new chapter was dropping my husband off at the white buses before a big plane took him miles … Continue reading Figuring things out
Whole30 Recap As some of you know I recently tackled the Whole30. WOW! What an experience! I started reading It Starts with Food in the fall to gain a better understanding of food and how my relationship with it is affected. I didn’t even know what the Whole30 was until closer to Christmas. I was … Continue reading Whole30 Recap
I've been eating healthy for quite a while now. I mean I cut out gluten almost four years ago. I found gluten was the cause of my awful joint issues, bloating, the watermelon baby feeling in my tummy, and even some of my migraine issues. It was not easy! However, it was doable.

I decided I needed to vote according to the issues that would have the greatest affect on my friends and family. Oddly enough, my husband … Continue reading Our decisions…..
Schedules, routines, habits; are all important. Working off a clock or a calendar makes a huge difference in our sanity, productivity, and even how well we unwind. A week ago my husband deployed. It's his fourth deployment and my first. We have prepped for the deployment for the past two months. I even wrote out … Continue reading Confessions
I've been thinking about the upcoming months. The change of season, holidays, schedules, daylight savings, and the overwhelm. Just thinking about that last sentence gets me a little panicked. What about you? For most, September is a symbol of a slower pace, comfy clothes, and delicious homemade meals. Your life slows down and everyone around … Continue reading Routines Matter!!
I am about four weeks into T25, which means I have one more week of the Alpha block and then another five blocks of the Beta block. I took my measurements and weighed myself at the beginning of the program and then again the Friday of Labor Day weekend. My weight didn't change, I mean … Continue reading T25 Update
The moisture in the air covers my face, spritzing me like a vegetable in the produce section at the grocery store. I breathe in and exhale; releasing tension and stress. There's no little cloud, it's not cold enough. A good spring rain that puts me in a long sleeve shirt and a ball cap. My … Continue reading Spring run
