Striving Towards Balance Then Vertigo Threw Me Off Balance

Striving Towards Balance Then Vertigo Threw Me Off Balance

My friends – about a month ago I wrote a post, My Evolution of Dieting, Falling, and Getting Back Up, but little did I know how literal I was when I said I was falling and getting back up.

Within a week of writing that post I was taken to the emergency room and diagnosed with vertigo.  It was the worst experience of my life.  My entire world was spinning.

I threw up for two days and the meds of AntiVert, also called Meclizine, and anti-nausea meds did nothing to help ease my suffering of spinning and nausea. (more…)

My Evolution of Dieting, Falling, and Getting Back Up

Here I am, writing another post about how long it's been since I've written “another post”.

Refocusing on Weight Loss Goals

Refocusing on Weight Loss Goals

A new chapter has begun in my journey – this quest of self-discovery to find peace and balance with my emotional eating.

Next Phase of Weight Loss on Beachbody Workouts

Next Phase of Weight Loss on Beachbody Workouts

Now that I've completed the Ideal Protein Diet protocol and have phased off into mainteance mode I'm ready to start the next phase.

When I phased off of Ideal Protein, I did so because I had lost so much hair from my weight loss (not necessarily because of IP) and I wanted to eat a more whole foods diet. (more…)
