Whole30 Nearly Done

I’m down to just five days to go and quite frankly, I’m ready. The last week is always the worse because you’re so close, and yet so far. Overall, this go around hasn’t been nearly as bad as the other two experiences. I’ve definitely had my moments (and yes, most of them were about wine), but I’ve survived. I will say that tracking weight and … Continue reading Whole30 Nearly Done

Bodies and Health and Food and Minds

I found a new doctor. Thrilling, huh? I know it’s kind of a strange topic to blog about, but I really, really miss my team of doctors in Seattle, and since moving, I’ve just had a hard time finding a primary physician to replace them. But, I’ve found one (even though the freaking wait list was 3 months long). I’m not sure I think she’s … Continue reading Bodies and Health and Food and Minds

The appearanceĀ 

Carving out time to write seems like it should be easy in my new world, but for some reason, I still don’t do it. Not because I don’t have the time, but I just don’t make the time. Why? Eh, probably avoidance, but we’ll see what we can do. Anyways, on to better topics. As a catch-up, I finally feel like the dust around me … Continue reading The appearanceĀ 

My relationship with….me

This post has been brewing around in my mind for the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t had the guts to really sit down and try and sort through it in writing. My relationship with myself has been a very long, very tumultuous road. And I don’t think I’m even half-way through. But when I pause and look back, I can see growth and … Continue reading My relationship with….me

2016 – Explore

I can’t believe I’m already thinking about next year! I am SO on top of it! Well, not really. With my luck (and procrastination skills), this post probably won’t be up until June 2016. (note: I started this post in October 2015) The realization that I was in the 4th quarter of 2015 though shocked me. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone … Continue reading 2016 – Explore

Fear be gone!!!!

(Shhhh, don’t tell anyone I’m cheating on my nanowrimo project and posting here!) Confession: I am 33 years old, I never learned how to swim and due to that, I have a large fear of water. Up until I got sick in 2011, I didn’t really care that I couldn’t swim. Every summer when my friends would jump into lakes or coast on inner-tubes, or … Continue reading Fear be gone!!!!

So, I joined a gym….again……again

I know, I know. Again?! Hey, gotta keep trying until you find something that fits, right? Let’s take a quick trip down memory lane, shall we? Joined my first CrossFit gym in 2012 when I was done with treatments and in remission. I loved the workouts but really disliked the community and trainers. #fail Joined my second CrossFit gym in 2013 when I was ready … Continue reading So, I joined a gym….again……again
