Because of condition I’m not going to get into, I’ve been on antibiotics for the majority of the last month. There are a whole host of reasons why it’s terrible for someone to be on antibiotics for a long period of time and in such dosages, but let’s just say it’s the lesser of evils for the time being.
One of the lovely side effects of antibiotics is that it kills all of the good bacteria in your GI tract. Another one of the lovely side affects is that it repeatedly clears out the GI…Read more
Are you managing your time, or is time managing you? It is easy to let life happen only to find ourselves at the end of the day further behind then where we started. If you find this happening all too often in your world, then today's post is for you. Consider this a gentle reminder for self awareness. What is most important to you on any given day and WHY?…Read more

Last night's tapas (and, of course, a BIG bowl of popcorn!) for our Oscar viewing party came together without a hitch. Although all of the things I made weren't the picture of health, the nice thing about tapas is that everything is bite-size... so it was easier to control my portions. I…Read more

“The big topic that came up during our argument was that he feels I don’t even want to be in a relationship. He feels that when he’s recovered I don’t even want to stay around; he thinks I’ve already made up my mind on the subject and that nothing he does to get better is going to change that.
After rereading this journal (entries written in 2000) I realized that I have felt hurt, disappointment and lack of respect for…Read more

Watch out! I'm starting to cook up some delectable things for our Oscar feast! Enjoying the coverage on the red carpet while I do some prep. (I haven't been keeping up with Project Runway, so it's nice to see Tim Gunn.) About to pop some cornbread in the oven, going to start cooking some…Read more

I’ve noticed a lot of posts and challenges about getting enough fiber, potassium, and other nutrients and minerals. All have great ideas to incorporate more into your daily diet. So my question is, how are folks tracking to ensure they are consuming the recommended amounts each day?
A mistake I was making in my own habits was assuming that if I followed advice from magazines and nutritionists I would receive enough vitamins each day. I didn’t notice until I started a food log that…Read more

One thing that drives me nuts right now is having lots of discusions & meetings to talk about doing something- someday.
I am finding this happening in business more than ever before... Can you relate?…Read more
As an Occupational Safety officer, it's been my job to assess, address, and train employees to prevent workplace injuries. That includes the employees spending long hours at their desk. We developed stretching exercises, trained office employees to take hourly breaks and do stretches, eye exercises and hand exercises, to reduce incidents of eyestrain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and repetitive motion injuries caused by turning from one section of the desk to the…Read more

Having had digestive problems for several years, which I felt was somehow food driven, the 28 day plan seemed to be a perfect fit for me. I started the plan at the first of the year and after one week I felt better than I had felt in years. After that first week I knew that I had been correct in thinking that my digestive problems were due to the foods that I was consuming. Then when week two came around and I started adding foods back I began to see that I had two issue to deal with,…Read more

I am now officially done with the 28 day challenge. I started the Saturday before February so yesterday was my last full day. I have to say that I didn't follow the plan as strictly as I had hoped in the beginning. That is to say, the exercise plan, but here is why. I came into the 28-day plan with a mission to just get back to healthy habits. I was not trying to drastically change who I was or lose weight. But I stuck to the detox/food plan, and I loved it. There were some confusing…Read more
I unfriended someone on FaceBook today. I don't do these things lightly.
I realized, over time, from reading her posts and her responses to comments, that she was a very angry, unhappy person and that she had no intention of addressing those issues in herself when she could conveniently blame society, her husband, her parents, her siblings, people who disagreed with her and just about anyone else for her issues. Reading her posts created a feeling dis-ease in…Read more
Pg. 82 Egg, Kale, and Ricotta. I recently tried this recipe from Power Foods cookbook and truly loved it. I woke up this morning with the desire for this but did not have all the items so I decided to tweak it a bit with the items I had in the frig.
1 slice of toast
1 triangle of Laughing Cow swiss cheese spread on toast
Uncooked spinach leaves
1 egg fried in 1 tsp. olive oil

I loved the idea of dividing your plate into quarters and halves and filling it appropriately. That made it so easy for even the youngest member of the family to 'see' serving sizes. We have some oriental-themed square plates that we use, which also makes it easier to portion food. (For some reason the round edges made it harder).
Now all I need are square plates with raised dividers to make haves and quarters on the plate.…Read more

If you've ever read Timothy Ferriss' amazing book The 4-Hour Work Week, there's one story that always blows me away... it's so inspiring, here it is:
