So, my February goal didn’t go quite as planned. My goal was to improve my sleep. I picked this goal for February because, well February is a short month and this goal seemed really hard. And it was! To be honest, I didn’t put nearly quite as much attention into this goal as I would… Continue reading February Recap and What’s On Deck for March
First, I want to say that I love yoga. I’ve been doing it on and off for several years. I always feel so refreshed after a good class. I’ve done various types of yoga, including hot. Whether or not I enjoy a class depends on many things- how I’m feeling about myself and my life… Continue reading To Bikram or Not to Bikram?
I am still working on my foundations of health posts, but as it’s the start of a new month I wanted to do a quick post on how my January goal went and what I’ve got on tap for February. As I mentioned in a previous post, I love resolutions, goal setting, and any kind… Continue reading We Interrupt Our Regularly Scheduled Program…to Sleep!
This is the second post in a series on the Foundations of Health. Go here to read part one.

It’s been almost 6 months since I graduated as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, and in those 6 months I’ve spent a lot of time in my head figuring out what exactly to do next. I’ve taken baby steps here and there (bought my domain name, posted a flyer at a local coffee shop…hey, two steps… Continue reading The Foundations of Health- Part 1
I’m in the process of writing an epic blog post- something with more in depth nutrition information. In the meantime, I though this post would be appropriate. In 2013, I experienced several major life events…probably a few years’ worth. Some great, some not so great. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to a fun, but… Continue reading A Year in Review and Looking Ahead to 2014
Just in case you missed it, here is the link to my original review of Diana Sanfilippo’s 21 Day Sugar Detox (print version). Seriously, go buy it right now…I’ll wait! …. Welcome back! I decided to tackle another recipe from the book- mayo. Oh, how I LOVE mayo! Yet, it’s nearly impossible to find a store-bought… Continue reading 21 Day Sugar Detox Review Part 2
My first book review! I am so excited to have had the opportunity to review Diane Sanfilippo’s latest book, The 21 Day Sugar Detox: Bust Sugar & Carb Cravings Naturally. I’ve been a huge fan of Diane’s blog, Balanced Bites, and her first book Practical Paleo for a while now. She delivers complex nutritional information in… Continue reading 21 Day Sugar Detox Book Review
Since getting back to the yoga mat last week, I’ve been thinking a lot of athletes and what it takes to be athletic. I’ve often wondered if there was an athlete hidden somewhere deep inside me, and that if I would stick to anything long enough to see results, could I in fact, become an… Continue reading What does it take to become an athlete?
Today I did something that I haven’t done in a long time- yoga. Yoga is one of those things that when people ask me if I do it, I automatically say yes….and then when I stop and think about the last time I actually did yoga, I realize the lat time I stepped foot in a yoga… Continue reading Back to the mat…and other things
