In general, I gave up eating carbs almost two years ago. I fought it for a long time. How can a Krispy Kreme doughnut be that harmful? The thing melts in your mouth and is down the hatch in less than two minutes. Then I developed joint issues and muscle issues and weight issues, and […]
A Wake-up Call
I like to think I honor God in all aspects of my life. I’m pretty clear about how He wants to me live, and I have been for most of my adult life. Lately, however, I’ve discovered I’ve made some choices mindlessly – choices I didn’t think God cared much about. And I’m paying for […]
Apparently, I’m Inflamed.
I’m on a new journey this year – one of trying to get healthy. It will probably be the hardest thing I ever attempt. I’ve lived with so many bad habits for so many years, I really need to start from scratch. For readers who check in here once in a while, you have read […]
15 Shades of Gray (part 4)
I have to mow the lawn this morning, but I thought I’d procrastinate on that and write a blog post. Isn’t writing more rewarding than moving the lawn? Unless you hate to write. Then, mowing just might be your cup of tea. Here’s the new addition to my wardrobe this week. I’ve had carpal tunnel […]
15 Shades of Gray (part 1)
I’ve been thinking about something for about six months – a decision that, on the surface, seems easy to make. However, because of society’s standards, I’ve wavered. On some days, I’m sure I want to make this change. On other days, it seems…well, unacceptable. Or, at least unwise. I mentioned to a friend the other […]
CFS and Fibro – Huh?
I’ve had a puzzling, interesting, disappointing, and then hopeful few weeks. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a week ago. I suspected it, but didn’t want to hear it. For seven months, I’ve been dealing with joint pain, muscle aches, serious fatigue and no energy. I kept pushing through it, which, I learned later, made things […]
Angelina Jolie is a controversial figure. Some people think she’s a talented, tattooed actress; some think she stole Brad Pitt from Jennifer Aniston and tops the weird chart for wearing (second husband) Billy Bob Thornton’s blood in a vial around her neck. Other people admire her work as an ambassador to third world countries; […]
MANGOES (what you need to know)
I have a love/hate relationship with mangoes. For me, they are equally delicious and toxic. I didn’t know this until last year when a friend of ours gave us some huge, juicy mangoes from her tree. After eating them nonstop for a few days, I woke up with a few itchy dots on my wrist. […]
