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
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.

I’m mad that I’m far away and there’s nothing I can do to help. I’m mad that the government and big food have literally been feeding us a load of crap… Continue reading Turning anger into action
I think saying that my life is hectic right now is a bit of an understatement. I’ve known for a while that I would be moving. But there’s knowing that you’re moving…and then there’s actually doing it. And then there’s preparing to move and having a whole wrench thrown into the system- a good wrench…but… Continue reading Ch-ch-ch-changes!

This is the morning of day 7, and really it started the way most mornings should start. No work for me today, so I woke up along with the sun and no alarm. My sweet little kitten was curled up by my head, and even she let me sleep in. Ah, good times. Days 4-6… Continue reading Sugar Detox- Day 7 Check-in
So, it’s day 3 of my sugar detox and I’ll admit that I’m feeling a bit punchy. I’m still in what I call the “easy” phase since the novelty hasn’t quite worn off. The hard part is day 7….through 21. This weekend I had a girls getaway weekend with some friends. Not going to lie,… Continue reading 21 Day Sugar Detox: Day 3 Check-in
