I have been hardcore. I'm on a lifestyle change to get some ugly inflammation under control in my body AND I HAVE NOT CHEATED. Not even at the social events. Not even with the open bottle of red wine in the fridge. Not with me secret stash of dark chocolate + coconut. No even with the soya sauce and other sources of hidden gluten. I've been hardcore. This only means something to me because I NEVER stick to diets. Red wine is too delicious. Dark chocolate too satisfying. But, this isn't a diet. This is a lifestyle change and I have been extreme because the stakes are high. Dieting never worked for me because the goal was always to 'rock a bikini' and although I'm sure it's really dreamy to strut around in dental floss at the beach - that goal is not in the same ballpark as 'use my hands'. So today - I am celebrating one full week of a very strict no gluten, no dairy, no sugar, no alcohol, no citrus, no tomatoes - with a delicious glass of unsweetened almond milk (which I happen to love). Cheers!
I'm recording my fierce moves of 2012 - when they happen. Why? Because I forget. And when I forget about stuff like that I start to leak courage. I forget that I've got it in me. I've tried gratitude + inspiraton journals and let me tell you THEY WORK. They cultivate gratitude + inspiration like a grow-op. SO. Every once in a while I might share a FIERCE MOVE here so I remember that I am very capable of being fierce.

Today: chiro + medicate + paint. I am hoping to find my groove soon and I have found Mondays to be hopeful. Here's to hope (and the awesomeness of local, organic honey)!
