Well it hasn’t been here!
A little less than a year ago I dropped off the blogging map. If you remember prior to that I was kind of trying to get my act together on the health front, on the work front, on the homefront, on the social front, on the I own a little doggie and she’s a maniac front … you know a whole host of things
When I look at my progress over that time, I think I managed to get things together fairly well. I mean if nothing else, Joulie has stopped threatening to eviscerate anything that walks within five feet of me. Granted that’s her progress not mine, but nonetheless I share in her victories! (For those of you who followed the “great unsticking” a year ago, my walk-in in closet is still a walk-in closet. I’m celebrating my second year in business for myself, and I’ve managed to stay out of the hospital for almost two years.)
I think most people know that I’ve suffered from some pretty significant health issues over the past bunch of years, and one of the things I found that’s really helped this year is committing to a vegan diet. Yeah , I drank the Kool-Aid. And I have to say I’m not one of those people that’s going to tell you that it’s been easy. I mean I was a vegetarian for years before this you would think it would be fairly easy, but I’m not fooling myself, it hasn’t been. I love cheese. Also having been someone who raised my chickens like they were pets, I didn’t feel any guilt eating an egg or two. It turns out , when you rely on a fairly sketchy digestive system, a vegan diet really is your best bet!
Over the next three weeks I’m embarking on an intermittent fasting detox. Oddly enough I don’t think I’ve ever bought this many groceries in my life… ironic, when you consider that I’m going to be fasting for a good piece of this 3 weeks. Well anyhow , I’ve decided to come back to blogging because I need to keep track of this. I need to try and log my progress or just how I’m feeling about doing this, and at the risk of appearing pretentious , I figured what the heck, I might as well do it here.
So, feel free to leave me a comment… that would be awesome . I missed all you guys and thought about coming back here many many times , but just never got my act together until now. Joulie and I are celebrating my return by making a detox soup tonight. My victories are her victories as well!
