Vegan fajitas Omg this was the best. I just had to share it. As a newer vegan cook I know I’ve struggled to find the flavor I desire in the past but this one was out of the park with great flavor!

Here we go again! This is it.
So, I’ve been MIA from my blog for a good while. Reason being was I wasn’t willing to face the facts. I knew deep down that short term abstinence wouldn’t work for me and that I would have to make the decision to abstain and be sober for good/forever. Until I was willing to admitContinue reading “Here we go again! This is it.”
My perfect day vs my real day
I often dream about what I would do if I didn’t have to work, be a housekeeper at home, cook and clean, manage my household… what would my perfect day consist of if I could make it however I want it?

Wow, I can not even explain the energy difference I feel being sober. I am accomplishing things I’ve had on my to do list for a long time and things I would brush under the rug.

Yesterday was a hard day topped with crazy dreams!
My 16 year old son got into a lot of trouble at the end of 2019. This lead to me increasing my drinking and to me smoking almost a pack a day of cigarettes (I was formerly a “social smoker).” We found him smoking pot and sneaking out at the beginning of his 10th gradeContinue reading “Yesterday was a hard day topped with crazy dreams!”
12 days and 7 pounds – it’s so much easier to lose weight
For years I tried to diet and lose weight while drinking wine. It was a struggle. A constant battle, to say the least. Now that I’m not drinking it so mush easier to control my food intake. I tried Adkins and I tried low carb and intermittent fasting over the past years but it wouldContinue reading “12 days and 7 pounds – it’s so much easier to lose weight”
