July 15, 2015 No journaling for a while because we’ve been so busy planning my parent’s 50th anniversary party. My sisters and I worked overtime pulling together nostalgic photos, decorations and a tear-jerking video, and we’ve all made it back home for the big party tomorrow. It’s hot and humid, hectic, but wonderful to have [...]

June 13, 2015

June 13, 2015 Migraine’s subsiding. Just a dull one in its place…and some serious neck and rib pain stemming from all the inflammation from my mysterious food reaction. I believe the corn was indeed the culprit. Going to test my theory this weekend (when I don’t have to be “on” for work and worry about [...]

June 12, 2015

June 12, 2015 Had nightmares and a really restless, annoying night’s sleep. Awoke to an even worse migraine. Haven’t tossed the cookies yet, but I’m predicting that’s on the docket for today. A breakfast of The Headache Medicine (again) and a nice green drink (kale, apple, carrots) to help out my poor liver. Clean eating [...]

June 11, 2015

June 11, 2015 Migraine. Again. A bad one, too. Feel like I could hurl, and I’m on killer deadlines, so no sick day allowed. I popped way too many Excedrin again (which I hate doing…but they’re the only thing that lets me function). As soon as they start to wear off, the pain comes back [...]

June 1, 2015

June 1, 2015 Remember that commercial with the song, “I love eggs, from my head down to my legs”? Yeah, well, eggs can suck it. I had a couple of the Vital Farms eggs (hatched from grass-fed feathered ladies) this morning, and I loved the taste, but have hated how I’ve felt about a half [...]

May 30, 2015

May 30, 2015 It’s a Christmas in May miracle! Woke to a mildly nagging headache, but no notable stomach complaints. A solitary Excedrin was all I needed. Won’t be tempting fate today, though, and piling on the potential for a full-body, allergic meltdown. No processed crap today and I’ll be good as new. It’s already [...]

May 31, 2015

May 31, 2015 Bad headache. Dreamed about the Kardashians (WHAT!?!). Not a nightmare, per se, but not exactly nighttime nirvana, either. Popped two Excedrin with my morning handful of stinky vitamins (sorry, liver), and chased down the aftertaste with slightly over-acidic homemade kombucha. Heartburn by 8 a.m. Joy. Dark chocolate chips came next…then the Natural [...]

May 29, 2015

May 29, 2015 Had a sweet tooth all day and after checking out the nutritional information on Sonic’s website, went against my better judgment and rode with the hubby to order a Reese’s Sonic Blast from the high-pitched, only-dogs-can-hear-her teenage girl in the drive-thru. I got the mini (without whipped cream, thank-you-very-much), and savored it [...]

July 10, 2013

July 10, 2013 Well, I started a novel. It’s not the first I’ve started (have two others in the works), but this one grew some legs and now I’m wanting to run with it. Out of the blue, the characters came to life in my brain and I’m having a blast giving them life on [...]

July 12, 2012

July 12, 2012 Years ago, before I made huge dietary changes for the sake of our health, we got lured into a product tasting at Costco that changed my life. And not for the better. This overly happy woman was serving samples of flavored, calorie-free “sport water” and my husband and I liked the taste [...]
