The Upside of Celiac Disease

Tuesday, July 28, 2015      4 comments

In my last blog I talked about how I accidentally ate gluten-containing pizza and got really sick. That was definitely a bummer and all, but I always say I won the chronic disease lottery. Read more

Now I Know!

Monday, July 27, 2015      6 comments

Even though I have celiac disease and therefore must avoid gluten-containing grains (wheat, barley and rye), I am not very sensitive. Some people accidentally consume single crumb of bread or dash of soy sauce (it contains wheat) and they are ve... Read more

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Dinner

Monday, July 20, 2015      5 comments

I was religious but only for a time. At the time I had a friend who grew up with religion, went to a Christian college, and so had a lot of knowledge about the faith. I remember her talking about the differences between two theologians' faiths, ... Read more

Real Change (& a recipe)

Friday, July 17, 2015      3 comments

It wasn't that long ago (3 years) when I joined SparkPeople because I wanted to build my commitment to health, mainly exercise. I know that circumstances can change, but my lifestyle is now one of activity. I don't need to think too much about i... Read more

Drinking Calories

Tuesday, July 14, 2015      5 comments

I generally do not drink many calories. Water is my beverage of choice. I have always loved iced tea, and before I thought much about calories I would drink the powdered stuff all the time in the summer. Read more

Chocolate and Ice Cream

Sunday, July 05, 2015      5 comments

I am back from a 4-day excursion to San Francisco. We were fortunate that the weather was SO GOOD when we were there -- we had sunny, warm days! As you know, the plan was to eat local chocolate and ice cream. To that end, we were successful... t... Read more

Those of you who are reading this and who know me, know that I care very much about health for myself and others. In fact, just recently I was thinking about how I feel as though I'm at a level of health that satisfies me and that I'd like to ma... Read more

Habit Change!

Sunday, June 28, 2015      4 comments

I was in the Philadelphia area yesterday and used the FindMeGlutenFree app to find myself some dinner. I went with a place that has cheesesteaks on gluten-free buns. The website said they also had gluten free mozzarella sticks. Do you know how l... Read more

If I could wear jeans every day, I would be very happy. My office is business casual and I often lean to the casual side of that -- cotton pants and a not-too-dressy top, never heels. I love wearing sweaters or blazers with pants when the weathe... Read more

I Heart Lunch

Throwback to the '90s

Wednesday, June 10, 2015      5 comments

I loved the '90s. I graduated from high school in '95 and college in '99. I certainly like myself and my life more now, but the '90s was a full and rich decade for the younger Kelly. And wow did I LOVE workout tapes back then! I had my own ... Read more

I made the 7-hour drive up to see my family last Wednesday. There was a lot going on up there and I was glad to help out. My mom had a health scare earlier this year -- she was bleeding internally and every test they gave to figure out why ... Read more
