    Cleaning House

    Today is Labor Day. And I decided to work. I cleaned out my room and did laundry. I’ve lost count how many loads but in the back of my mind all  I could think of was when will it end when did I get all these clothes and Can I still fit this? Last week Wednesday I went to the doctor’s office and got news about my health. There’s huge possibility that I may have a thyroid problem. Growing up my mom used to tell me about all the issues she had health wise. Her thyroid was one of them. She told me how she always had cold feet. Throughout…

    Health & Fitness

    After coming across a post in a blog I just had to share. I am on a health journey and this startles me! The original Blog post has been posted below and you can visit their site here.  Are You Hungry? Pink Slime, Anyone? Or thirsty? Pink slime in the burgers and beetle extract in the strawberry drinks.  Sounds delish, doesn’t it? So far this week we have learned that there are some unbelievable “supplemental” additives in our food that we purchase at our local grocery store and Starbucks.   Apparently, Starbucks resorted to using beetle extract to avoid using artificial coloring in their Strawberries & Crème Frappuccino and strawberry smoothies. …
