Whole30 – Day 5: The Scale. It mocks me.

I overdid it on the roller yesterday.  I knew I might have been doing it while I was doing it, but that didn’t stop me.  Apparently, I irritated my sciatic nerve.  I became exquisitely aware of this at 3:00am, when I awoke from a sound sleep, feeling like my entire right leg was on fire. […]

Whole30 – Day 3

Good morning, everyone. Yes, I know it’s been a long time. Mea Culpa, blah, blah, blah. This is going to be a long post with no pictures, some links, and an awful lot of health stuff. If you don’t want to read it, I don’t blame you. This is the point where you click to […]

Process vs. Product & Yoga

Today started with a conversation (in my head) about Process vs. Product.  I even started a conversation on Facebook about it.  The resulting discussion was interesting.  I got to know a lot more about how my friends view the subject as relating to knitting, spinning and crafting.  I loved reading all the responses.

In my […]

Catch-22s and Drinking The Kool-Aid (Part 1)

I love mixing metaphors.  Don’t you?

Catch-22 ”

A situation in which a desired outcome or solution is impossible to attain because of a set of inherently illogical rules or conditions.

This pretty much sums up life with Fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia is a multi-sympton syndrome characterized by widespread pain (pain in all 4 quadrants of […]

Poisoned

I wanted to write a post about all the fun the I had this weekend, but instead I need to write about something much more serious.

I got poisoned this weekend.  I’m sure it wasn’t intentional on the part of the poisoner, nor was it intentional on my part, but it happened all the same.  […]

Detox, Detox, Detox

oh…how difficult you are.

I saw the nutritionist yesterday.  She’s a holistic nutritionist, believing as I do, that a body out of balance manifests in disease.  And boy, is it ever time to put my money where my mouth is.  I don’t want anybody to get alarmed, though.  I’m working closely with my MD (who […]

It’s All About the Bike

I had a really good friend a bunch of years ago who said, “There are two types of people, those who get Bike Religion, and those who don’t.”

I get it.

Today was the first day since 1998 that I took a solo bike ride.  I remember the last one.  Tim was recovering from his […]

Two steps forward, one step back…

I know the detox process is just that, a process.  And yet, when I have a day that is as stellar as yesterday, waking up this morning and finding myself back in the process is somewhat….um….disappointing.

I knew there was going to be trouble last night.  I roamed far and wide yesterday, stopping here, stopping […]

What do I know?

Today I know two things. I know that yesterday I finally went and had blood drawn for the Celiac test.  I also know that the results don’t matter.

On Monday, February 7th, my internist and I decided that I should be tested for Celiac Disease.  After 2 years of being mostly gluten-free (or gluten-lite), I […]
