Before I get down to business, I can let you know that my autoimmune Whole30 is going well. I do miss eggs, but more than anything, I miss tomato paste and spices. Things aren’t particularly hard as long as I don’t try to eat out. It isn’t even worth the effort, quite frankly. But importantly, […]

Oh seriously, I have been on the huffy bus this week at work. To bring myself back to centre, I have put a new focus on regular blogging and trying to cook something decent each night, rather than relying on left overs. See? Tonight was an Asian-ish chicken soup, using my homemade broth and carrot […]

In my every day life, I am hyper aware of how my body looks in comparision with every other woman around me. I suspect this comes from living as a morbidly obese woman for many years and having strangers yell out car windows, or making nasty comments as I walked past. But even these days, […]

The other day I tweeted a picture of my fridge door that generated a bunch of activity. It took me by surprise actually. Responses ranged from people wanting to know more about it, and jokes about me being a little OCD. Yeah, no shit. So, here’s the deal before I go into more detail about […]

Am working on a new blog post, but in the meantime, here is my lazy recap of my trip. Between 7 – 21 August, I was in Boston for the Ancestral Health Symposium and lots of lovely socialising – including a wonderful trip to Austin to visit my very favourite Melicious from “The Clothes Make […]

Dear Dallas and Melissa, About that book you wrote? Yeah. It Starts With Food. That one. I loved it. Really. I wanted to write a review, but you know, everyone has already done that and all the smart kids already have the book. Also, I’m not very influential! So really, I wanted to tell you […]

Last year, I started to question Crossfit metcons for my particular situation. I began to feel like they were not helping me – mostly because I was stressing out and feeling emotionally wrecked afterwards. Also, I knew I had issues with stress management and stubborn belly fat – and really, with the amount of weight […]

Oh, how nice it is to be back. Back on the blog, back on the #Whole30, back to my old self – you get the idea. It has been about 4 months since I ended my marriage, and 3 months since I moved out of the shared house. In that time, much has changed. (No […]

I had myself a little wake up call today and I suspect a few of you will be able to relate. I realised that my words were not matching up with my actions. For once, this is totally unrelated to the size of my arse – but I have certainly been guilty of this in […]
