Living II: My ViSalus Challenge Week 4 – Temptation

Week 4: Like many of you, I had to juggle a busy work and travel schedule along with my personal focus – my diet.  How exhausting!  Over the span of 4 days I had 2 formal dinners, and one buffet dinner and luncheon to attend.  On Thursday with each indulgent bite I would chastise myself, […]

Living II: My ViSalus Challenge Week 3 – Intention

Living with Fibromyalgia: My Visalus Challenge Day 4 – Plan

Day 4: Today was family day and we ate brunch at TooJay’s, a local restaurant. I ordered a coffee, 2 eggs over easy (blotted with a napkin to absorb any visible oil), with a fruit cup and toast (1 slice). My fibro-flare is over. I am feeling better and planning on taking it easy today. […]

Living with Fibromyalgia: My Visalus Challenge Day 3 – Cook

Day 3: This morning my body felt too heavy to move and the pain was overwhelming.  I can’t write, or read.  I need to listen to my body and give it the rest it’s demanding.  As the day went on I started feeling  better and this evening I decided to make dinner for the family…a […]
