I’m a 30-something female who’s striving to be the healthiest woman I can be through diet and exercise. In early 2013 I was introduced to the world of Paleo. I completed Whole30 and had fantastic results. I had finally found something that worked for me! My blog is a jumble of my thoughts as I take the journey through my life. Somewhere for me to unleash my views, my challenges, my failures and my successes (hopefully!).

  1. Thank you so much for the reblog! I’m glad you found it interesting and I like your commentary 🙂 I’ve been the same way before, getting on the scale every time going in the bathroom.
