30 Day Challenge

Today is Day 11 of my 30 Day Challenge. And it's the first day that I have felt unmotivated. I read The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod a couple of weeks ago after hearing and seeing a lot of posts on Instagram and videos on YouTube about the life changing effects for so many people. I decided to give it a go myself. I started by looking up Hal Elrod and came across some of his talks on YouTube. I watched a couple of them, then picked up the book. I'm in a transition period right now in my life. I'm still working in Ohio through the week, even though I moved to Indiana after getting married at the beginning of the year. I'm at the point now where I'm researching alternate career paths so that I can find a job closer to home. I want to be able to spend more time with my husband and stepdaughters. I figured this is the best time to really concentrate on personal development. The better my mindset, the more open I am to opportunities, the better my chances are of findi…

Making Good Decisions

I have spent the last few years struggling with my health. I finally found out that most of my issues are because I have something called Hypermobility Syndrome. It means my collagen is faulty, which affects the entire rest of my body. Scientists and doctors are all still working on figuring out all of the details. I spent a lot of time sitting on my ass while feeling like crap. I also only ate food that was easily obtainable or that was cooked for me. I finally went to physical therapy at the end of 2016, which helped a ton. And I have tried really hard to be more active. Now that I'm moving around more, I decided that I need to start paying more attention to what I'm eating.

I've done so much research into different diets and meal plans, etc. What I have figured out is that my GI symptoms seem to be exacerbated heavily by eating meat. So for the last few weeks I've been trying to be more conscious of my diet. And by diet, I simply mean the food I'm eating. I deci…

New Directions

I haven't written anything on this blog for years.

I think my biggest problem is that when I started writing this I set up guidelines. I had to write about knitting. It was supposed to be all about my needlecrafts. Unfortunately as soon as I'm told "NO!" I shut down or choose to do the exact opposite. So I didn't write anything because I had self imposed "NO!" when it came to writing about anything else. Seriously - it's such a bad habit that as a teenager my parents refused to tell me no. They would instead choose to remind me all choices have consequences. This was their way of saying no. Luckily it worked.

I still post things about knitting, I just tend to use Twitter and Instagram. I feel like opening up the topics of my blog allows me to be more creative and allows for the flexibility I want.

So I'm just going to write about whatever I want. That's the new direction.

Hopefully now that I've given myself permission, I'll be more …
