Men: Do you get 38 grams of Fiber?

A few days ago I was looking into weight loss yet again. An article from the FDA and another from WebMD about fiber intake. Women need 25 grams per day and men need 38 grams per day, saying the average American gets about 15 grams per day. I thought that was untenable, 38 grams per … Continue reading Men: Do you get 38 grams of Fiber?

Passing the Gardens of Earthly Delights

Some dreams just stick with you. I was dropped off at an island with just a bag of my choosing, along with hundreds of others. I had the impression we were gathered from our homes, placed on a ship and dropped off to fend for ourselves. None of the others wanted to stick together, so … Continue reading Passing the Gardens of Earthly Delights

But, because of resolutions, I've made such great progress … Continue reading 2019: CELEBRATE!

Last Month of 2018

Happy December 1st!  This is the last month of 2018, such an eventful (long) year. We've lasted through New Years Resolutions, the 147 days of January that just seemed to linger forever.

2018 Accomplishments

The past few years have been challenging, to say the least. 2016 I realized my marriage was going to end, I was suicidal and depressed. 2017 I relocated, cocooned myself to protect, love and rebuild my emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health, mourn the loss of my marriage and decide on a course of action … Continue reading 2018 Accomplishments
