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

Finally, it’s not January

I’m so happy it’s February. I swear, January was a real downer. For reasons that I’m still unsure of. It just felt like a mini-long year of hell, without actual ordeals. So, I’ll list the happy things about the month, and then I’ll just let it go and move on into the beautiful (cold) month of February! I was able to visit my friends in … Continue reading Finally, it’s not January

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

As a refresher, my focus this year is concentrated on four main areas: Writing, Traveling, Dancing, and Music. Of course I’m also trying to grow and develop in other areas of my life as well, but those are … Continue reading 2015 The Experience – Q1 Recap

Stop….Hammer time! (Or my time, same thing)

Whole30 is winding down, and I have to say that it’s not been too bad. It really wasn’t until halfway through this past week that I felt really ready to be done with it. I feel like I’ve really learned a lot more this time around, but this time it’s been less tangible things like “oh, milk makes my tummy hurt” or “I do like … Continue reading Stop….Hammer time!

Learning things

I’m learning that sometimes most times my choices are made out of sheer laziness. I really dislike that. I’m learning that reading a label of ingredients is a hell of a lot more telling than the damn calorie count. I’m learning that I really don’t have to cook (or grocery shop) as much as I thought I did to maintain a healthy eating pattern. I’m … Continue reading Learning things

It’s only been 5 months….? (Part 1)

Hey world, it’s me again. Geez, I know, I know, where the hell have I been? Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin (everyone says that, right?). Let’s take it all the way back to post-Whole30 from last year, and I’ll try and be as brief as possible. Winter is always a really challenging time for me mostly due to the holidays. It’s generally … Continue reading It’s only been 5 months….? (Part 1)
