Today is Day 32 of my Whole30 challenge.  Yep, I did it! I lasted the whole thirty days, and then some. Over the past month I have had many non-scale victories; clearer skin, thicker hair, better sleep, more energy, zero bloating, and a very even mood –which is huge for me, just ask my husband.

don’t ask me about my cast

Today is Day 16 of my Whole30 journey. I must say, it’s been wild, and rewarding thus far, and I can honestly see myself making this a lifestyle. As long as I can master the damn mayonnaise recipe! I think I’ve had it easier than most, with hardly any side effects, and no cravings, because

the first five days

I’ve been skirting around the Paleo lifestyle, eating only REAL foods, for years. As part of my bio-identical hormone journey back in 2012, I cut out all soda and fake sugars, and I have never reintroduced them. Over the years I’ve continued to improve my eating habits, and now I eat about 75-80% clean. I

i want to have running bling like flavor flav

I just found out I was selected to support and promote the Mississippi Blues Marathon as part of the #BlueCrew. Whoo-hoo I’m so excited! I wanted to support and promote the 2016 Mississippi Blues Marathon because: I’m planning to run it with my friend Stephanie; we heard (repeatedly) while we were running another half marathon (weird,

whoa…i think i was just fat shamed

I made a quick stop at my neighborhood Walmart on the way to the beach today. I purchased SPF 50 lip balm, and a package of dog bones for the two-year old dog my son drove across three states, and then asked me to babysit, for eight months. As I was standing in the checkout

feeling unstuck.

Last month I drove to Jackson Mississippi.  I found it after a missed turn, a frantic phone call and a bunch of tears on the side of the road in Mobile. I went to Mississippi to run the Magnolia Meltdown half marathon with my sweet, very fit and much younger (as in I have a

heeeyyyooooo what’s new?

Long time, no see! I know. It’s me not you. I haven’t been here for a while. Let’s catch up. I went for a run in the middle of the day once, and stopped at a bar along the way (all sweaty and gross) to meet my friend for a liquid lunch. I played with

from molly to carly in four hours

We had our second annual Wild Turkey Open House yesterday. Our house opened at one, and by two-thirty, nobody was here. Seriously. Nobody. I felt like I was in a Molly Ringwald movie. But then the peeps started to trickle in, the Wild Turkey 101 started to flow, and by the end of the night (or

i know the secret

I  found out how to be an amazing mother. I mean, after all the years of changing more diapers than I can count, all the sleepless nights, struggling to feed my kids balanced meals, taking them to soccer, basketball and t-ball practice, monitoring their grades, refereeing their fights, and setting curfews…all it took was a simple

a memory lane detour

I took a trip down Memory Lane last week. Not purposely. It was the kind of Memory Lane trip you take when you’re avoiding doing what you’re supposed to be doing, that you really didn’t want to do. Anyway. Yeah. That. I couldn’t help it. I stumbled across a big HUGE folder, made to look
