by Craig Groeschel Hello everyone! Happy Sunday! I thought I'd check in and say "yo!" First off, thanks to all of you lovelies for being so real with me after my post last week. Because of your words I decided not to delete it. I saw this quote the other day and decided to share … Continue reading you enjoy YOU.
Black coffee and honesty
One of my compromises with myself when I started this blog (in deference to my last one) was to be completely honest. You get the good and the bad, the ups and downs, the wins and the losses. Why be fake? Why try to trick everyone into believing that life is rosy all the time … Continue reading Black coffee and honesty
food sensitivity and me
There are all these companies out there these days that want to examine your blood/DNA/saliva and let it tell you all about you. I've always been curious about what my blood might tell me. So at the end of the year I purchased a Food Sensitivity and Metabolism test from Everlywell. The Metabolism test needed … Continue reading food sensitivity and me
random friday stuff: vol 4
Hiyo! Things have been way to depressing lately. All around. Let's talk about all the things that are making me happy these days. Downton Abbey. When it was on originally I never got past the finale of Season 3. No spoilers but it was DEVASTATING to me. So I stopped. I decided to pick it … Continue reading random friday stuff: vol 4
It is Friday night and I'm sitting here on my sofa, having a cup of sleepy tea, and watching Grace & Frankie (again) on the TV. (Side note: I'm SO excited for Season 4 which comes out next week.) ANYWAY. I got off work this afternoon and came home and deep cleaned my living room. … Continue reading Climbing again
gasp! we are all broken in some way.
Don't let anyone fool you, especially those pretty put-together instagram folks, no one is perfect. It's so very simple to take photos or share the one tiny corner of your life that is clean, tidy, skinny, modern, detailed, polished, or beautified while ignoring the other 98% that is "normal." (I cannot tell you how long … Continue reading gasp! we are all broken in some way.
I'm gonna be candid. It's been a hell of a few days. I know I go into a lot of things here but all the details that sent me off the deep end are going to remain in my secret journal not my public one. When there are other people involved it gets tricky and … Continue reading Choosing joy.
the great depression
138 day move streak. 4 perfect months. 21 pounds and 23 inches lost. I've had quite the string of accomplishments lately. I'm not trying to brag; I'm just proud of myself. That's a lot. I had (have) a long way to go. I started this year wanting to be healthier not only physically, but mentally … Continue reading the great depression
you know what? not everyday is great.
It's really easy to only write about happy things. I like writing about accomplishments. I get downright giddy sharing a life hack that helped me. It is not fun, however, exposing the underbelly of emotion. The emotions that bubble up and catch you unawares. The emotions that make you crawl into yourself and hide until … Continue reading you know what? not everyday is great.
I'm here. I did it. I stopped blogging quite some time ago because life just got HARD. Overwhelming. Not only that, I tried to make my blog something that it wasn't and it just added more stress than I needed. So I'm beginning again. The other day I tried to figure out exactly when I … Continue reading brand new
