Phoebe's Fifth Grade School Picture

Here's Phoebe's 5th Grade School Picture.  I really like her in red or bright colors.  She's definitely becoming quite the little lady.


She is growing up beautifully, Heather!

What an awesome pic! :-)

Thank you so much for the encouraging comment. Aiden will be 6 and Livi will be 4 when I get my ASN and I hope they will be able to remember it so they will one day know they can do anything they want to also. Of course I don't plan to stop there, I would like to go into higher care nursing, but this has been a leap and a struggle to get through so means something those other things just won't.
She is BEAUTIFUL!!! Awe. Makes me so happy.

Waking - coffee, black
Morning - intermittent fasting, drinking lots of water, until almost 11AM when I had my chocolate vegan Shakeology with unsweetened almond milk and coconut butter
Lunch - salad with chick peas, avocado, …

Diet Beta Test Update

Wow!  I will tell you this is life changing stuff!  I've been wanting to give an update to everyone as I've been having great success experimenting with fixing my metabolism.  Partly why I wanted to try this program, is I already was experimenting with different things like healthy recipes, cutting out dairy and intermittent fasting and was having some results.  What I was really looking for was more guidance on protocols and why one would choose to try different protocols and why.  That is exactly what this program is.  You listen to lots of different audio programs talking about the following ideas:

Healing gut health - this is one of the key ideas that we need to do in order to repair our metabolism and ensure we are receiving full nutrition from the healthy foods we eat.Eliminating inflammatory foods - inflammatory foods do not help your metabolism and gut health.  I've been avoiding dairy, gluten, alcohol, peanuts and nightshade vegetables (tomatoes, egg plant and pep…
