DIY Liars

Two weeks after being diagnosed with a severe allergic response to limonene and fragrance mix II, my allergist added “propolis” to the list after a delayed response marker appeared on my back.  Shit. Propolis is resin collected by honeybees used to fill crevices and to seal honeycombs.  Fucking bee glue. Confused on why I would … More DIY Liars

#500milesin2017

I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions.  What does throwing out the old calendar and hanging up the new have anything to do with me accomplishing something in life?  I have been known to start a new “diet”, workout schedule, or topic to learn on any random day of the week, or month of the year. Except this … More #500milesin2017

Advo-Frreeeeeeee!

I’ve been Advo-Free for exactly one week now, and let me tell you…. I feel great! My husband created a pretty intense dumbbell-only, full-body, four-day-a-week workout plan.  Each day consists of four to six exercises, three sets of reps each, with alternating sit-ups, jumping jacks, planks, and a run on the treadmill between each exercise.  Total … More Advo-Frreeeeeeee!

Still…  I didn’t sleep last night.  Not going to blame that on AdvoCare just yet, though, since my sleep schedule seems to be a bit screwed up again.  The hubby and … More I am an Advo-Failure

Advo-Wat?!

For the most part, we eat fairly healthy: breakfast every morning, whole grains over white bread/pasta, few processed foods (damn you Cheeze-Its and … More Advo-Wat?!

Kombucha Party Foul

I am checking out for this Memorial Day weekend for some much needed R&R with the family.  Don’t worry,  I will have some delicious camping recipes and I’m certain, some funny family stories to share on my return back to blogland. But first, I wanted to give a kombucha update – It failed. Five days … More Kombucha Party Foul

Bean-ache Begone!

I guess I should first explain what a “bean” is, so you thoroughly understand what a “bean-ache” is.  Between my husband’s prior service in the Marine Corps and my mama’s Creole heritage, our family has a language all of our own. Ink sticks, are pens.  Calling one of the kids “booby” or “little willy” is … More Bean-ache Begone!
