Happy New Decade!

Happy New Year! Can you believe it is here? The start of a new year . . . the start of a new decade! Have you thought about it? Where were you (physically, spiritually, emotionally) in 2010? How has your life changed?

Bright Line Eating

Hello, Friend.  I know it's been a while since I've written.  I'm starting my posts again on the same schedule as before, Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm Eastern time. This week, I'm republishing a post from 2017.  I had discovered Bright Line Eating then and dabbled a bit in it.  I am now following the… Continue reading Bright Line Eating

Water, Weight, and Couch to 5K

Yeah!  Spring is officially here.  For me, the unofficial start of Spring is the beginning of daylight savings time; but now it's official.  It's been a cold, gray winter and so far a cool, gray spring.  I'm ready for some sunshine!  I'm ready for warm weather, green grass, and open windows.

Spring Update

In February I tried Jason Vale's Super Blend Me! program.  This is a new program Jason Vale has put together.  As the name implies, it is a blending (think smoothie) program versus a juicing program.  All you really need is a blender, which it seems most people own. There is a book available along with… Continue reading Blending/Smoothies

Bright Line Eating

Bright Line Eating is a lifestyle routine created by Dr. Susan Peirce Thompson.  She recently published a book by the same name.  What makes this book interesting, is that it is written from an addict's and scientist's point of view.  Instead of talking about nutrition and how this is good for you and that is… Continue reading Bright Line Eating

305 lbs. Hitting the Century Mark

I took this screenshot Saturday morning, May 7. I am excited to say that I have passed the century mark on my weight loss. It is an exciting goal that I’ve been trying to reach for quite some time. I’ve been very close the last month with my weight tottering up and down.

I refuse to listen to nay sayers, no matter how many letters are after their name

Perhaps that very large person that you just poked fun at is in the middle of a weight loss journey and has already lost a substantial amount of weight.

“Juicing Not Only Changed My Life, It SAVED My Life”

This week's post is my interview with Neil Martin at Natural Juice Junkie.  This interview is about more than just juicing, so go ahead and take a look even if you're not interested in juicing.  I hope this will be an encouragement to others that are on a health/fitness journey.  Thank you for the opportunity,… Continue reading “Juicing Not Only Changed My Life, It SAVED My Life”
