Should I Cancel Cable TV?

I don’t spend a lot of time at home. It feels like I’m always out somewhere, and when I am home I don’t watch a lot of TV. There are a few TV shows that I watch regularly, but I’ve been watching House of Cards on Netflix most recently. 

My monthly bill for cable and internet is $ 158. That doesn’t include special channels like HBO, etc. That’s what it costs for one cable TV/DVR box and internet, and I feel like a sucker when I think about the money I’m wasting every month for something that I’m not really utilizing. 

What’s better than gluten-free? GRAIN-free!

Heather learned the hard way that thinking about food from the “gluten-free” perspective can impair health and lead you down some needless detours.

The first picture was taken about six months ago. I have stage 3 adrenal fatigue, and had a total thyroidectomy nearly two years ago due to a multi-nodular goiter. It’s been a very long journey to wellness, and I’m fortunate enough to have a wonderful osteopathic physician helping me along. He was the one who suggested your book to me. I finally got around to reading it shortly after Christmas, and started the diet a little over two months ago.

Meal Planning

It’s been a long time since I did meal planning, but I’m working on a list for things that I can make and take to work with me next week. I typically work from the comfort of my home (or Starbucks,) but I’ll have to be more proactive with planning if I want my transition to go smoothly. 

I don’t know if I’ll have access to a refrigerator and/or microwave, but I’m assuming that I will. I want to prepare healthy snacks and lunches that won’t bother others. (I will not be the woman who makes popcorn at the office. It seems invasive to me.)
