Anyone seen my missing blog?

According to the email I got from WordPress this morning, I haven’t updated my blog in ten months…which is right when I did my first Whole 30.  Well, let’s be honest – my only Whole 30.  I haven’t exactly been a poster child for healthy lifestyle this year.  Or the back half of last year,Continue reading “Anyone seen my missing blog?”

Whole 30 – Wholly AWESOME

Seriously you guys, I’m so pleased.  I’m starting Day 9, and I feel amazing. Quick recap:  I have been slipping more and more into my old ways, and wanted to reset, detox, all of those good things.  I also want to stay away from supplements, gimmicks, and just get back to basics.  I read “ItContinue reading “Whole 30 – Wholly AWESOME”

Whole 30 – Wholly Terrifying?

Okay friends…what I really want to do is write a quilt update full of all of the beautiful projects I’ve been working on.  But the whole reason I started this blog was to journal my lifestyle changes and effort to get the insane inflammation out of my body.  It’s been an interesting several months, toContinue reading “Whole 30 – Wholly Terrifying?”

Sunny Skies and Cooking New Things

I have definitely fallen off the blogging wagon! Ack! It’s unfortunate, because I’ve realized over the past month that this (super public) journal really has been helpful in keeping my mind clear and focused, and the support you’ve all given me makes a world of difference. I’ve been open in past blogs about my struggleContinue reading “Sunny Skies and Cooking New Things”

Being Thankful :)

First, I just have to say thank you to everyone who has been following along, sending me sweet texts, emails and Facebook messages and giving me support.  I know I’m a big baby on my best days and the extra love has been so, so nice.  I’ve tried to handle all of this uncertainty withContinue reading “Being Thankful :)”

Answers…Maybe I’ll Get Some!

Okay friends – big week ahead.  Hopefully I will FINALLY get some answers!  If you need me, you can find me at UT Southwestern donating all of my blood. To recap:  a few weeks back, I had extensive blood tests done and came back with a trifecta of doom.  Highest inflammation levels ever (despite myContinue reading “Answers…Maybe I’ll Get Some!”

Doctors, Vegans and a Pretty Good Wednesday 

I had a pretty adventurous Wednesday, all things considered! Doctors, vegan food and a surprise visit with a friend! Work, too. Always gets in the way of a good day of doctor hopping. Ha!  First up – met with my gastroenterologist at the “Center for Digestive and Liver Disease.” So dramatic.  No, mom…I’m not thereContinue reading “Doctors, Vegans and a Pretty Good Wednesday “

Houses, Health Care and the Word of the Week…Mystifying.

I think I have four good reasons why I’ve been a little quiet on my blog this week: I’ve gained five pounds, and I’m annoyed at myself.  Hard to talk about my big life changes when I seem to have lost all enthusiasm.  I’m pretty sure it’s just all salt bloat, but I still feelContinue reading “Houses, Health Care and the Word of the Week…Mystifying.”

Just a Casual Monday Night Dinner

I think I’ve mentioned I’m the weirdo who works out while staring at the Food Network.  It’s a double whammy, right? Not only can I probably not eat 90% of the recipes shown, but I’m the only overweight person at my pretty person gym. Whatevs. I’ve got my playlist bumping and the Pioneer Woman isContinue reading “Just a Casual Monday Night Dinner”

More Adventures in Cooking

Okay everyone, I’ve been slacking in the cooking department.  Bad, bad, Christina.  One of the terrible and awesome things about Trader Joe’s is all of the semi-homemade cooking it allows me to do, because who doesn’t like an extra serving of salt bloat?.  I’m still journaling every meal with MyNetDiary, and every day I get aContinue reading “More Adventures in Cooking”
