Dear Melissa…

Sooo, today is a big day guys. It seems like just a few weeks ago I was telling you guys that I was FINALLY 3 months seizure free. Where has the time gone, guys? These past 3 months have really flown by.

Today I’m telling you guys that I’ve finally made it. 6. FREAKING. MONTHS. SEIZURE. FREE. This day means SO many things, but mostly its just happiness. I’ve been looking forward to this day for, oh I don’t know…YEARS.  I know that I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for our new diet choices. So in celebration, I’m sharing with you, the thank you note that I have written to the creator of Whole 30, Melissa Hartwig:

Happy (late) New Year!

Happy New Year, guys! 💥💥 Can you believe its 2018? I literally remember when it was turning from 1999 to 2000 and we all thought that the world was going to end because the computers would malfunction. And look at us now…just thriving. 💪🏻

Anyway, since it IS 2018, I wanted to share some of my goals for this year with y’all. I didn’t make a fancy vision board as some people do. (Confession: I actually just found out recently that vision boards are a REAL thing. 😳 I thought that vision boards were a figurative thing? Like oh, ‘I’m going to put all of my goals on this figurative goal!’ But, come to find out, there is typically an actual board involved. Or some fancy people do make them on the computer.) Anyway, I actually do have a lot of goals that I am working on this year, so I’ll share some of them with you guys in case you are looking for some motivation in your new year:Read More »

Confession Time

Straight up confession time:

My motivation is dwindling. I’m not sure why, but for some reason, whenever I make it to about the 4 month mark of being seizure-free, which just happened at the end of November, my motivation DWINDLES fast, and i put on my LAZY PANTS. I’ll give you some examples of the laziness setting in: not filling my medicine organizers, forgetting to take my medicine all together, staying up too late, and now, with my new, healthier way of eating, I’M STRUGGLING to stay on track!!  You can ask my husband, my mom, anyone in my family…the four-month struggle is a legit thing. And as my laziness gets deeper and stronger, we all just kind of silently wait for the other shoe to drop (AKA, for me to have a seizure). Read More »

Product of the Week

Okay can I just start of by saying, how do people live without WiFi? Our WiFi has been out (thanks Cox), and I felt like I was living back in 1999 with my slow ass Verizon internet basically compatible to dial-up internet connection. The struggle was real, guys. Luckily I had a fab book club book to get me through.

ANYWAY, I have another wonderful product to share with you guys. I had been hearing about this on blogs and Whole30 Facebook groups but the name kind of turned be off because it seemed weird. BUT, people raved about it so much that I just had to give it a try.Read More »

Product of the Week

So, I’ve recently become semi-obsessed with some of the things that I use in the kitchen on the reg, and I feel like if I don’t tell you guys about them, it’s just not fair. So I’m going to try to do a Product of the Week every once in a while so I can share the amazing-ness with y’all, because these goodies are just that awesome.


Today’s feature comes from, of course, Trader Joe’s. Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend is literally Read More »
