Treading Water….Revisited

September 3, 2013

Almost a year ago to the day I wrote a blog post titled “Treading Water“. I had so many people contact me afterwards and either share their similar feelings or console me on mine. I just re-read my post and thought that I would give everyone an update…one  year later. Continue Reading...

The Kitchen Is Closed!

My “Happy Pill”

November 15, 2012

I cried after hot yoga today… and no it wasn’t because I am not as limber as I thought I was! It was a happy cry and a take a deep inhale and then a big exhale kind of cry.  That might seem odd to some people…most people actually, but the change I have felt emotionally within me over the past couple weeks has been incredible.

Are You Up For The Challenge?

October 29, 2012

I am busy preparing meals today. Healthy, delicious meals that I will put in the refrigerator and freezer and hope that by preparing them early it will make it easier for me. The meals are for my family, I won’t be eating them. Although they are nutritious and well thought out, I will be on a challenge of my own…..a 24 day challenge. Continue Reading...
