Whole 30 – Day 4

Today is day 4.  Let’s say that it’s interesting.  I feel…different.  I’m feeling better, generally.   I feel like I’m climbing out of the black hole that is a fibro flare-up.  I’m still fatigued.  There’s a difference between between being tired and a bone deep feeling of not being able to move a muscle.  Not having […]

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.

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

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

Detox, Detox, Detox

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 […]

Checking in…and checking out

That’s one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite songs, Wild, Wild Life, by The Talking Heads.  Because it sums up so much of my life.  I check in, I check out.  I, like so many people, have spent my life checked out.  I’ve found a myriad ways to do it.  When I […]
