#127 - Gluten.
I think I spoke too soon.
Day 1 (Tuesday) of gluten back in my diet produced no reactions. However, on Wednesday morning, I woke up with a sore throat. It wasn't more than I could handle, and really, it went away fairly quickly. Throughout... Read more

#123 - Hoping for Some Answers.
I'm sorry that I have been MIA the last month or so. I have been dealing with a lot - exhaustion/lack of energy, brain fogs, headaches, asthma, bloating, irritability, etc. Truly, I have dealt with the issues for several years with some days bei... Read more

First off, I want to say thank you to all of my Spark Friends for all the love and encouragement on the last post as well as while I've been "gone". I'm still not 100% yet, but I am working on it.
We live in a society where we have to be th... Read more
This blog is meant to be honest - with you all but especially myself. A few of you have told me that I inspire you; while I am grateful for the comment, I feel like the last three weeks have been the opposite of that. I've let you all down. More... Read more
#121 - A Letter to Myself.

2012 has been a great year for me. I've lost a little over 20 pounds, I'm healthier than I've ever been, and I'm working out more. When I was 174 lbs, I never thought I would get to where I am now. I know, though, that to get to my desired weigh... Read more

Anyways, I... Read more
#116 - Sandy Hook Elementary School.
If you were like me, I was devastated to hear the news about Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday. I couldn't believe how someone could take innocent lives of 6-7 years olds. It broke my heart that they would never be able to smile, laugh, or ... Read more
