Hi friends, It's been a while but I actually check in just about every day and lurk around. My energy has been super low for a super long time but today I thought I might try a blog to catch up. Life has stayed very busy and I am proud ... Read more

Sorry I have been MIA for awhile. I have been doing some introspection and working through some stuff...(aren't we all??). The value of what we share here with each other cannot be understated. Even though I just kind of lurk every couple of day... Read more

Thank you so much friends for asking about the progress. We are still in the works. Since finding the west wall of the house was being held up by boards (siding), my contractor found that so was the south wall and corner. The roof was literally ... Read more

I have put off writing this one for some time because, well, have you ever felt like something is just too long and too complicated but then all of a sudden it seems relevant? I am trying hard not to draw unnecessary analogies but today I felt ... Read more

Halloween 2015, what a different place I am from one year ago. I am two pounds more than what I was a year ago when I was meeting goals and consistently tracking and exercising. The crazy thing is when something is working for me and then slowly... Read more

Overeating is self punishment. For what? Who knows? Maybe because I am not the mother I wished I were. Maybe for all my secret thoughts about how I'd like to be doing something else. Maybe for being unable to stay forever young. Maybe for having... Read more

I ate all weekend. I now can't even button my jeans and have been living in an old, faded, stretched, soon to be holey skort. Super nervous about the weather changing too. Years ago I did a Shrink Yourself program and was in a team here on SP. T... Read more

Last Thursday I had less than a week to go. The longest I've ever kept a commitment to myself and then, Beautiful, glorious, cherished life! I love life. Last Thursday I was chatting with a cousin on the phone around noon and I c... Read more

I cheated. I weighed myself. I was starting to panic, the program warned about this. I feel so fat, I lost my trust in the process ( a little). I started googling all about "weight gain on Whole30.." and the like. I was convinced that I am that... Read more

Today was a wonderful Whole30 day. I cannot believe how many veggies are going down around here. I made a roast for dinner and honestly, I was a bit nervous about making a Whole30 compliant pot roast. No wine? no flour gravy? no onion soup mix? ... Read more

Woot Woot! Made it through my dinner with company (great time btw). I was dangerously close to crumping for that fabulous looking cobbler but the thought of starting over today was what kept me in the game. It was so great to know it's poss... Read more

Feeling good. We spent seven hours at the stream with the kiddos. It felt like two. I really love my good friend Ann, what a treat. I ate my Whole30 breakfast and wasn't planning on being there past lunch so I packed nuts and fruit for myself an... Read more
