Journey to the best health of my life (yes, the journey includes olives)

Quintet of Radiance Award – I’ve been nominated!


This is my first award nomination!  I am thrilled and very grateful to weight2lose2013 for the nomination.  Please visit the blog – he always has something interesting to say.

I am super excited about this nomination. Not only is it my first award nomination, but it’s a bundle nomination!  I’ve been nominated for 4 of the 5 wonderful awards that are part Quintet of Radiance Award.  So here goes…

Most influential bloggerIt’s exciting to be nominated for this because I started my blog as a way for me to release my inner thoughts, a way for me to share my journey with whoever came across it.  I was shocked that my first post was actually read – and my blogging journey began.  It is great to be a part of this community.  I hope that I do influence you to stay determined, to keep on the path to your goals and, above all, to strive for the best health of your life – and then to maintain it.



Don Charisma was kind enough to nominate me for this award again on May 21, 2014.  He redesigned the logo and I LOVE what he came up with.  One is a ‘Superwoman’ logo and one is ‘Superman’.  Superman is my all time favourite hero so thank you Don giving me something so close to my heart!


Sunshine Award

One of my friends used to refer to me as Sunshine.  Unfortunately he passed away when we were both young, but I like to think that as life has continued for me I have kept ‘Sunshine’ a part of me.  I have my moments just like any other person, but I always try to stay positive. We cannot always control what happens to us, but we can control our reaction.

Inner Peace Award

I struggle with letting things go.  Sometimes things just eat me up inside.  However, as part of the STMC I have been trying to make yoga a part of my daily life.  It helps me relax and changes my outlook for the day.  I’m learning to let go of things that I cannot control.  I’ve also been working on taking people out of my life that give me inner rage!  I am not at 100% inner peace, but I am on the road 🙂 Namaste.


UPDATE: Don Charisma was kind enough to nominate me for this award again on April 11, 2014

ABC Awesome Blog Content Award

I started this blog as a way to unleash my thoughts.  My main focus is health and this blog is a journey to the best health of my life (and I will get there!).  I will generally write about what is on my mind and so I do hope that what I write engages you.  I love interacting with you all so thank you all for your support!

The ABC Award requires me to write a word or a phrase about myself for each letter of the alphabet.  Here we go!

Avocado – I’m in love

Brown-eyed – yes, I have beautiful brown eyes with long natural lashes 🙂

Creative – I act, write poetry and do video and photo editing in my spare time (as well as blogging!)

Determined to reach my goals in life

Encouraging to others – I am totally here for you and find joy in supporting you through your journey, whatever that may be

Food – I love tasty food and I finally realize that tasty food can be healthy!

Gym addict

Happy – generally


Jiggy – I love to get jiggy with it (Generally in my kitchen when I’m cooking and the music is blaring.  I have been known to dance to just the music in my head though!)

Kayak – I have a secret desire to try kayaking, but am scared I won’t fit in so have never tried.


Movie fan – in particular I love action and comedies

Natural – I try to eat whole non-processed foods and am working on using less chemicals in my home and on me.

Olives – as you know, I love them!

PCOS – I have PCOS

Queen – the way my husband makes me feel

Red – Lady in Red – Chris de Burgh.  This is one of my favourite songs and this leads to my goal dress – it’s red!

Unique – I am who I am and there is only one of me

Volunteer – I get great satisfaction and it’s a part of me

Zzzzzz – I really do enjoy my sleep, but I hope I never put you to sleep!


Now it’s time for me to spread the love and respect I have for other bloggers.  Here are my nominations for the 4 awards, if you choose to accept.  To keep with the ABC theme they are in alphabetical order – go check them out!




Author: Foxy-O

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!).

  4. Foxy love you!! Truly an inspiration!!

    • Aaaaw, thank you! So are you 🙂

      • Foxy, how do I do the links to the other blogs, also do you copy & paste the photos to you blog, thanks 🙂

      • For adding the link to the other blogs highlight the text to you want to create a link for while you are in edit post, then click on link button in toolbar (visual – paperclip icon – 6th from the end of the top line of the toolbar; or text – click on ‘link’ in the toolbar). A box will pop up and just follow the instructions.

        For the pictures – click on them and they should open up in your browser as single picture. Hover over the picture, right click with your mouse and go to ‘save image as…’ Save to your computer and then you’ll be able to insert them into your post.

        Hope this makes sense! If you want clarification feel free to email me at 🙂
