What IS the BEST diet?

The one you can eat. I finished up my herbalist courses today and took my final exam. I scored a 99% on the final, thank-you-very-much! The only thing that bothered me about the whole thing was their promotion of 'one diet to rule them all'. Of course, with it being centered on Christian living, the … Continue reading What IS the BEST diet?

The scale is going down!

...and since we should all be looking for changes in our bodies beyond the scale when we are working out... I can also see some definition coming to my legs. Yay! I made sure to watch my carb, calorie, and salt intake over the weekend and to get on my bike each day. Last night … Continue reading The scale is going down!

Something is wrong with my family tree

I was at my aunt's 70th birthday on Sunday. My sister, bil, husband and I all rode up in my sister's suv. The back of which was packed with tables, chairs, food, and drink. In between our city and Wyoming, there used to be long stretches of farm and ranch land. We knew where every … Continue reading Something is wrong with my family tree

Remember working out in the ’80’s & ’90’s?

I do! I don't know if there are still any around, but I remember when the only gym in town was, Bally Total Fitness.

Working out in those days was all about being seen in the … Continue reading Remember working out in the ’80’s & ’90’s?

Fat shaming ninja strikes out at me

While these are what I prefer to eat: I know this is how I MUST eat: Today is my 50th birthday. People tell my I don't look fifty. I certainly do not feel 50 so why must I own to it? I think I will fudge my age a bit. Don't tell anyone, K? My … Continue reading Fat shaming ninja strikes out at me

Paleo tortilla recipe

I'm usually very skeptical about anything that needs to be baked being called, 'paleo'. By the time enough sweetener and odd starches have been added to make it palatable and hold together, it is a far cry from 'true' paleo food∗. I was trolling Pinterest looking for non-paleo recipes calling themselves paleo recipes when I … Continue reading Paleo tortilla recipe

What are you willing to do to get what you want?

No, this is not another Pinterest post. It is something nice to look at whenever this post bothers you. I am going to admit to you that I am not at my goal weight. I'm no where near my goal weight. I am, and have been, a work in progress. Mostly because I find it … Continue reading What are you willing to do to get what you want?

Paleo, cancer, and forgiveness

  Some one near and dear to my heart just finished up her last bit of cancer treatment last month. It was an incredible blow to all who know her when the news broke that she had stage three breast cancer. She showed none of the genetic markers for being predisposed for cancer. Most doctors … Continue reading Paleo, cancer, and forgiveness
