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

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.

Advo-Wat?!

Recently my husband and I (for the umpteenth time) began discussing our “plan” for getting healthy.  We decided that we have both become a little lazy in our approach over the winter months. 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?!
