8 Sunny Miles: Till Death Do Us Part

Food Allergies, Running & My New Normal

It’s taking me a little bit to adjust to my new normal. I’ve made some mistakes and I’ve slipped up a couple of times but for the most part I’m on track. One slip up led to...more

Winter Ice Storm & Wednesday Ramblings

The littles are home again, this time from an ice storm rather than a snow storm. I love how beautiful ice makes everything look, but it is really destructive. I swear I have spent a good portion of the winter outside trying to get snow and ice off the bending bushes in our backyard ....more

Day 5 Allergy Elimination Diet

Day 5 Food: Roasted Beets Basmati Brown Rice Rice Cakes Peach Jelly Corn Chips {not on the allergy diet at all but I wanted them and I don’t feel bad about it since I’m not allergic to corn} Salad Mix Juiced Carrots Juiced Beets Chicken Shortly after I watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead I bought a juicer, as I am sure half of the people who have watched that movie have done. I really like the one I bought and I use it weekly so I think it was a good investment in my health.

Day 3 Allergy Elimination Diet

It wasn’t specifically listed on my allergy sheet as something I couldn’t have this week so I don’t feel bad about it. I don’t feel awesome today because of the drinking, but I can tell you that I feel AWESOME compared to what I normally feel like after a night of drinking ....more
