Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts The importance of self talk and the 2nd time around
Friday, February 22, 2019      165 comments

I've noticed a few of us are on our final journey after an initial success and maybe after a re-gain. I've noticed that the way I talk to myself is very different this second time around and it reflects my self- talk in general. This is an area... Read more

Man, I miss you all. It's been so busy these last months I can't believe my last blog was written in the middle of last year. I was full-time last semester and right at the end the Camp Fire happened. Wayyyyy too many events and emotions for thi... Read more

This is not an easy blog to write. I feel like such a whiney hypocrit who is eating her words. Okay, that's fine, it's still worth it to me......I am jumping off forever the Whole30/Paleo/AIP train. Lot's of good things I've learned but for ME, ... 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
