I felt I could do it on my own – after 10 years, you’d think I knew better. But I can’t & anyway, I know I’m stronger with all of you by my side. What happened to me, you wonder? I lost myself in the last couple of weeks; I met a guy who sa... Read more

Hi. I’ve been gone. A long time. Busy playing the ostrich. I was doing so good. Then, I told myself I could eat a little piece of dark chocolate. That’s when the downhill ride began. Short after that, I met my boss in her office because she... Read more

It's official - I don't tolerate lactose. I've tried some lactose specialty cheese and.. nope, it's a no-go. I think I might have had a reaction to Greek yogurt too but I am not 100% sure so I'll keep paleo-compliant for 3 days and then, tr... Read more

Whole30 - The End!
Friday, October 06, 2017      13 comments

I did it. 30 days of rigorous efforts toward a simple goal: improving my overall health. I knew I could achieve it - but I’m certain I didn’t expect it to be that easy to follow. Yes, I had ups and downs but the downs were short-lived and the up... Read more

It's been a busy day - glad for that. Nothing major happened. I met with a friend I had not seen since June. She has been through a lot and I wasn't in town when she got in the hospital at the beginning of August. For a while, I didn't know if I... Read more

Thank you for your kind words about my blogs - I often feel like I am not worth taking other people's time for such trivial things. In the same time, I do read a lot of blogs and comment on most of them. That comes back to being your best frien... Read more
