It's been 4 weeks since I had surgery. I've experienced a roller coaster of emotions. But I'm finally starting to feel a bit like myself. I'm still in pain (abdominal incisions suck by the way) but definitely not as much as week 1. I'm... Read more

I had wonderful week. I went to yoga after taking a tiny hiatus. I'll be real. It's been 2 months! OUCH! I let stress get the best of me. Yoga is the way to deal with it instead of food. Silly me! I lost 4lbs! If that isn't motiva... Read more

I bought the 3 day beginner Kaeng Raeng cleanse. Has anyone tried this before? After researching the product, I felt pretty good about my choice. It is NOT a fast. You get to eat all the raw fruit and veggies your heart desires. Hopefully, ... Read more
