Let’s try this again, take 3!
Yep, it’s that time of year again. I’ve spent the last year drinking as heavily as ever! It was a “better” year because we spent All of January sober and subsequently lost about 12-15 pounds. We started back to drinking in February and didn’t stop again until January 31, 2016! I was able toContinue reading “Let’s try this again, take 3!”
Time to be accountable and make it happen!
My high blood pressure was first diagnosed about 20 years ago when I was undergoing a life insurance test and it was slightly elevated.

Food, juicing, smoothies… clarity
It has been a very interesting week. I have been experiencing moments of clarity and in those moments of clarity, I feel like such a failure on so many levels.

Week 1 was a success, sort of!
Week 1 – I did great with no drinking! I felt so great all week. The down side is I didn’t get my workouts in last week. I found myself super busy with the kids, Christmas planning and shopping, planning two birthday parties for the boys, and various other things that I found excuses notContinue reading “Week 1 was a success, sort of!”
Day 2 of my “Action Plan!”
I always feel so invigorated when I quit drinking. I feel so full of life and energy… I don’t know why I have always returned to my old ways of daily drinking and excessive drinking at times.
