For months, I've decidedly chosen not to create a new blog. Months. Every time I consider it, I think "No time! There's never any time. No time to study, no time to wash my hair..."
And yet, every few days the thought pops into my head: "Start a new blog."
That's where the inner argument begins:
I don't want to.That's true. A great strength and flaw of mine. And then it continues:
I shouldn't. I don't have anything to say.
Whatever. You always have something to say, whether you should or not
So if I start this blog, what's my focus? I have an opinion on everything. I'm all over the place.End conversation. I think my inner self is giving me permission to give up. But my inner self is giving me permission to think.
Yeah, you are.
So after months of thinking and arguing, I decided to start a new blog. I figured it was that or admitting myself to Bellevue.
January was prep time and now the family blog is pleased to introduce our newest member of the family:
Risqué, I know!
I spend a lot of time researching PCOS, Paleo nutrition, exercise, sustainable/ethical farming, and overall fitness. I also spend egregious amounts of time implementing what I learn. Now it's all coming together in one place. To share and to learn together.
It has been a long road, but I feel like I'm finally at a place where I can be healed from PCOS, enjoy good food without being hungry all the live-long day, exercise a lot less than I used to, and become for-real toned (not fake toned).
After years of not even realizing what a zombie I was, I finally feel alive. (And I've lost 45 pounds and counting, which is awesome in and of itself).
There is a heavy PCOS slant (for now), but I truly believe the nutrition and fitness principles are for everyone. I'd love some feedback, so if you have any questions or comments, kind or scathing, send them my way.

And PS, we had twins. PATRICK started a blog too! My world has been totally rocked. In a good way.
