What’s Eating You?

This is not another ho hum preachy post on "HOW TO or NOT TO" stuff your face with unhealthy processed greasy junk food.  This "do it yourself" tid bit is about pin pointing internal negativity that you ingested and is eating you alive.  Don't freak out, this is not some ghastly tangent about colon cleansing.… Continue reading What’s Eating You?

FITness holds a candle

I relish candles.  There is something expressive about a singular flame slowly melting wax away and I like it.   It's captivating and makes me happy!  I'm wildly attracted to the fragrant scent of citrus candles.

Is it true?

With all of our technology and constant advertising it’s hard to know what’s fact or fiction in the FITness world. Here’s a Friday tib bit #abercrombiefitness #fitspo #reblog #personaltrainer #fitnessblogger #friday

Abercrombie & FITness

There is so much crap out in the market place.  FAKE NEWS, industry lies, gimmicks and off the wall ridic quirky quick fixes with false promise.

How can anyone know what is good or bad or true or false?  

Today I will attempt to indemnify some of your failures and answer some of your enquiring “FITness and Health”related questions.   After all, just because a vegetable is green and nutrient rich doesn’t mean it comes without adverse side effects!

Does broccoli cause bloating!  That’s a big fat YES!  And while you’re at it, add cabbage and kale to the list. 


Kale, broccoli, and cabbage are cruciferous vegetables, which contain raffinose, whatever that is!  Lol. I won’t leave you hanging, raffinose sugar that remains undigested until bacteria in your gut ferment it, which produces gas and, in turn, cause bloating. But don’t shun the healthful greens just yet.

My Mr. Chicken Fry  has a big time FOOT fetish.  He pays attention to FEET and thankfully adores mine!  It’s a serious thing this fetish of his.  I literally have girlfriends that will unequivocally NOT come around my hubby if they aren’t properly polished and pedicured to perfection.  It’s true!  They fear the wrath of the Chicken Fry mock! He will openly rake you over the coals for poor foot care.
