Someone close to me is currently losing the battle with cancer….and I’m mad. I’m mad that this person didn’t take better care of themselves. 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 weekend I had a girls getaway weekend with some friends. Not going to lie,… Continue reading 21 Day Sugar Detox: Day 3 Check-in

Because the 2 month bender I’ve been on has left me feeling like crap. And lastly because of this blog post by Mark Sisson.… Continue reading 21 Day Sugar Detox…let’s do it!

It comes in fits and starts and then as quickly fades away. This lack of ambition… Continue reading The things we carry
It’s official- I am a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. Honestly, I thought this 9-month certificate program was infinitely more challenging than undergrad and graduate school combined. I guess really caring about what you’re studying makes a difference…who knew? And as an NTP, I’ve even scored my first client! Let me tell you- she’s stubborn,… Continue reading I’m an NTP…whoop whoop!
If you ever want to know how I’m feeling about my health just take a look inside my apartment….if I even let you in the front door, that is. I’ve noticed a strong and unmistakable connection between the state of my apartment and the state of my health at any given time. I feel best… Continue reading My apartment, my self
I’ve been thinking a lot about the idea of motivation lately. And as usually happens, whenever something is on my mind, the universe throws as many related things at me as it can.
