It has been 5 months since I start my journey.  Crazy!  I started it on on November 4, 2019.  That eating plan was vegan, no gluten/sugar/white starch/grains/nuts/condiments/weight scale/measurements.  I did "cheat" with broth (turkey, chicken, beef) occasionally with...

Oh boy, I lapsed on the posts! 

Welp, I did it! 

Today was Day 108 of my 108-Day Vegan, Gluten/Grain/White Starch/Soda/Sugar/Artificial
Sugar/Weight Scale-Free Challenge!

I was wearing the big jeans tight when I started. Had lots of hard days, lots of hangry days, lots of...

2 more days (on Jan 1st!) and I'll be halfway through my 108-day program.  February 19 marks my 108th day. So, I've gone from from a size 18 to 16.  I'm hoping I can get to a 12 or 14 by the end of my 108 days.  

I just re-watched "Fat, Sick and Near...

I have been waking up early.  My knee has been really bothering me.  It's time to wear a knee brace, get an X-ray and take my "limbs" more seriously.  One of the foundations of yoga are the "Eight Limbs of Yoga" and I always give a mini talk on one of these aspects in...

My dear friend Natalie has been one of my main supporters in my wellness journey.  Even through my laziest days, she would invite me to her yoga classes to practice, or would just sit in a space (indoors or out) with me and we'd practice and she would often invite me t...

Oh boy.  I just passed the month mark.  I do say so myself, but it's starting to show.  Went to the theatre this weekend with my dear friend, Prentiss, and I didn't wear Spanx under my outfit.  My lines were a lot cleaner and I didn't feel compelled to put a hand or a...

Over 3 weeks.  Now I am seeing where my patterns are.

I have given up a lot of things (no grain/sugar/gluten vegan plan) and feel a-okay about the idea of giving most things up permanently (i.e. sugars, artificial sweeteners, gluten, diet coke, meat), but I still stres...

Day 15 of 108.  It's actually going pretty strong.  I've stayed true to my plan and I'm surprised at how much my body is responding.  I don't drink nearly as much water as is recommended, so I need to work on that.  I got quite weak during week 1 and 2...but...I have e...
