Seasons of Joy: Still hanging on….

This is just a quick post, because I am crazy busy. So, having been sugar free for a month, this week I decided to decrease my fruit intake, which I think was probably masking any sugar deficit cravings I was (seemingly) lacking. ¬†I didn't stop eating fruit, just decreased it. ¬†Man, this was waaay harder…

Seasons of Joy: Addiction But No Cold Turkey

Warning: Brutally honest post ahead. This doesn't seem an appropriate post to be in my seasons of joy series, I know. ¬†Thing is this series is about me. ¬†It is my journey through the often murky waters of Life. ¬†My fight, if you like, to find Joy in every season. ¬†In order for me to…

Wibbly Wobbly Weightloss: Becoming Forty

Yes, I turned forty this week and was taken out for dinner twice, a surprise lunch, had a rather large take away, some very tasty chocolate brownies made by Lorna's lovely daughter and basically did not eat healthily at all.¬† And I'm alright with that.¬† I had a really special birthday week and was made…
