Eliminating Chemically Processed Foods

You feel the way you do because you eat the way you do.  I’m thinking of having this tattooed on my arm.  Right down my forearm so every time I dig into a bag of chips (plain Lay’s are my favorite) or a bag of peanut M&M’s I will be reminded that I’ve walked this road before and it’s a downhill jog to feeling terrible.  Joint pain, inflammation, bloating, tiredness, hormonal changes, insomnia, acne, weight gain- all of these are things that I have discovered are directly connected to what I’m consuming.  It’s not just me.  Consuming chemically processed foods is bad for all of us.

Setting Intentions for the Week

A Sunday Quickie

Happy Sunday, SC fam! I can’t believe I’m already writing the third Sunday Quickie. Time is going by so fast right now, but I must say I feel more fulfilled, invigorated, loved, heard, and helpful than I have in a really, really long time and it is reaching into every little pocket of my life.

I wanted to talk to you today about setting intentions for the week. Now, I think the first thing you should know that an intention isn’t a goal and a goal isn’t an intention.
