#betterskin Challenge – Week 2 

You know how sometimes things get worse, before they get better? That’s me right now. I got my period this week, and the week before I always get a nasty, hormonally driven breakout. The big blemishes that hurt – those are what I have to deal with this time of month. Ugh! But let me […]

Is Your Diet Soda Deadly?

On my journey to better health, diet drinks were one of the last things I gave up. I loved drinking coke zero – and I was either addicted chemically, by habit, or both. But there was one other aspect that hooked me – actually, it hooks a lot of us: zero calories. Somewhere along the […]

Chaga chaga chaga chaga

As I wrote that title I envisioned a little train, chugging along on this quiet, snowy Thursday! But no, today’s post is not about trains. It’s about chaga, the mushroom. I can’t believe I’m even writing this post. I do not like mushrooms. I have never, ever liked them. But the more I immerse myself in […]
