{a better bee}

from disordered eating to the primal lifestyle


It’s been about… 9 months. Welcomed this adorable little guy on Thanksgiving, and though this is #3, I’m starting over with the baby stage and I feel like a first time mom again.

The only reason my return coincides with the new year is because I’ll be 6 weeks postpartum tomorrow, and officially cleared for exercise and healthy weight loss. My poor little guy is dealing with a food sensitivity, though, so I’ll also be eliminating dairy and eggs to start with.

The sugar-free* option is NOT healthier than the original**.

*wherein sugar-free means sugar is replaced with artificial sweeteners. That shit will kill you!

**If the original contains HFCS, then you should choose NEITHER.

Note to self:

There comes a point when you have to stop lying to yourself. That friendship, the one you were warned about. That person you decided to give the benefit of doubt to… well, she’s toxic. You were told she was clingy, needy, and that others had ended friendships with her. And now you need to do the same. No more bullsh*t. Because you know nothing is going to change, and you’ve known it all along. Time to cut the apron strings.

Grow a pair and deal with it.
