My 3 Day Detox

Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Fitness

I decided to do a three-day detox, this week, and I’m happy to report I made it! Having autoimmune disorders, from endometriosis to PMDD, and hypothyroidism (to name a few), I learned that clean eating is one of the best ways to alleviate symptoms. But, let’s be realistic, not all of us are made to live on carrot juice. Nevertheless, I did partake in a 3-Day Detox, this week. I’m going to share the basic guidelines I followed. What I ended up eating, each day, along with how I felt. 

Snickers & Squats - Achieving Balance in an Unbalanced World

Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Fitness

Sometimes, on rare occasion, I am asked for my take on diet & exercise. I usually assert my personal tongue in cheek phrase, Snickers and Squats.

I am not embarrassed to admit that I have a very healthy appetite. I can out-eat most men. I’ve entered more than one All-You-Can-Eat Wing Bowls- Once, against a large group of high school boys (as their church youth leader) and eh hem, won first prize. And yes, I am often spotted holding up buffet lines with my second helping of dinner or dessert. What can I say? My appetite is extraordinary.

Shopping at Aldi ~ Why I'm totally hooked!

Food & Home, Health & Fitness

Holy cow! Why have I waited this long? All this time, I never knew what I was missing. Yes, I had been to Aldi before. But, it was a while ago. It wasn’t essential for me to drive a few extra miles to save some money. Not to mention, I hadn’t realized how much of an upgrade this store has received. It’s much nicer and cleaner than I remembered and the selection of products is much better. But, after my visit this week, I’m totally hooked! From this point forward, I will always do some shopping at Aldi!

As you now know, my family has morphed into minivan contendership, practically overnight (read about that here), I think it’s about time that I start shopping at Aldi! It’s ridiculously great quality food and fantabulous prices. Come and see. I’m so excited about my finds. Almost as much as I’m excited about my new minivan! 

Healing Autoimmune Disorders - Part 2

Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Fitness

Do you suffer with multiple health symptoms such as fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, allergies, digestive issues, muscle or joint pain, brain fog, pregnancy issues, and/or trouble with losing weight? Women, do you feel that you your hormones are off balance the majority of the time? Are you so used to dealing with your symptoms that you are compromising your potential to live an extraordinary life?

Healing Autoimmune Disorders Part I

Fashion & Lifestyle, Health & Fitness

As you may know by now, I have several autoimmune disorders. (That I know of, anyway!)

Endometriosis
PMDD
EBV
Hypothyroid

As far as symptoms, there’s pretty much something every day for any of these disorders.

Fatigue
Migraine
Abdominal pain
Brain Fog
Anxiety
Depression
Insomnia
Allergies
Inflammation
Bloating

Trying to wrap my brains around these disorders and symptoms has been overwhelming, to say the least. I want to know. Why did they happen? How did they begin? Could I have done something differently? Did my doctors neglect proper treatment? Did one cause the other? Will I continue to develop more disorders?
