save the animals!

Let me start this off by saying that...

#1. I am an animal wacko
#2. I will bring my car to a stop if I see a loose dog roaming the streets to find its home
#3. I don't put up with people who abuse or mistreat animals

I am an animal nut that is for sure but I am proud of it. I'm am no where near a vegetarian but I do have a huge place in my heart for furry things. Today I was watching Oprah and what I saw disgusted me and brought me to tears. (I'm not a big fan of Oprah, but I do love some of the things she does.) It was on puppy mills and the horrible abuse that goes on there to the momma dogs. They then showed the pound and all of the animals there and explained that the dogs/cats have 5 days to find an owner before they are put down. It made me nuts watching it, there were soo many precious puppy dogs in there and I watched them be put to sleep!! The sweetest dogs who walked in the room wagging their tail and seemed like awesome family dogs were killed.

Oprah featured this awesome foundation that's in LA called the "Lange Foundation". It is a non-killing shelter for animals who are either found on the street or are rescued from the pound. Every time someone "sponsors" a pet, the foundation goes down to the pound to rescue an animal that is about to be put down in the sponsors name. It's amazing. I so wish I could be involved somehow. My dream as a little girl always was to open up an animal rescue one day. I went online and sponsored an animal, they are going to be sending a picture to me of the sweet one that I saved. I can't wait!!!

If it is on your heart to save a dog or cat from the pound and you are like me and can't have one more animal in your house then PLEASE go to...... www.langefoundation.com
They are awesome people with great hearts and their foundation runs off of donations alone.

Thanks :)

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
