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?”

Time for a Detox!

Was it just two months ago that I swore I would get back to blogging on a regular basis?  How quickly time flies!  It’s been an action packed summer, full of friends, family, pool time, quilting and traveling.  While I have been cautious (for the most part) about avoiding the things that will exasperate myContinue reading “Time for a Detox!”

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.”

Reality Checks

Ah, weekends. I had a great one, even with big old reality checks, level sets, priority checks and a boatload of sleet. Dallas, stop it. I’m being serious. Remember when the fat envelope was a good thing? I was finally willing to walk down to the  freezing cold mail room to catch a few daysContinue reading “Reality Checks”

Good News, Bad News and the 50 Pound Mark

Good news first, yes? I officially hit the 50 pound mark over the weekend. It’s hard for me to wrap my head around being 51 pounds heavier this time last year. I’m still struggling with how I look and how my body (poorly) functions at this size, so how on earth was I doing itContinue reading “Good News, Bad News and the 50 Pound Mark”

Cleaning Closets and Selling the Shoe Hoard

Ah, spring.  Well, not really, but it’s been in the 70’s the last few days in Dallas so I figure it’s a great time for spring cleaning.  There is nothing I love more than an organized closet.  Well, besides a five pound drop on the scale.  That’s better.  Whenever I have a chance to get myContinue reading “Cleaning Closets and Selling the Shoe Hoard”

Pizza, Pizza! Without Gluten or Cheese. Sigh.

I woke up sick as a dog today, so what the hell, let’s make some pizza.  Vegan cheese can be made of mostly oil, depending on the brand, and that much oil makes me feel seriously sick to my stomach.  No better time to try a new fake cheese than when my stomach is already aContinue reading “Pizza, Pizza! Without Gluten or Cheese. Sigh.”

Good Hair and My Beyonce Moment

So I’m about 20 pounds away from hitting the 75 pound mark – nice!  Somehow losing 75 pounds in a year sounds so much more exciting to me than 50.  If I’m pinning down an exact time, I weighed my highest (ever and all time) somewhere between the end of last February and first ofContinue reading “Good Hair and My Beyonce Moment”
