It's time... Today, I begin my second Whole30. A friend agreed to join in, as she had been feeling worse since her first one, just like I had. My husband will do his best, but he will be traveling, so it may be hard for him. Actually, I will be traveling 18 days starting on April … Continue reading Whole30 #2, Day 1
Today, I want to share how I believe sleep has the biggest effect on my health. I may not have a lot of "scientific" research to make this claim, but I do have my own data.

Perhaps the physical therapy on Monday was more than my body was ready to handle. My sleep is still affected, but it's getting better. Over the last … Continue reading Clean Eating Restores Equilibrium
This isn't my week, so far... I don't know if it's because of my three days of eating "crap food", but I feel like a complete physical mess.
