I don’t care that my face looks tired, puffy and that this is one of the most unflattering photos I have ever taken.  

What I do care about is what is under that shoe!!



Yes! That is me driving the truck, which I’m not a fan of driving anyway because it’s SOOO big compared to my RAV4, with one hand on the steering wheel and the other hand holding a shoe on the “ceiling”.

What, pray tell, is lurking in between the sole of said shoe and the fabric of the roof of the truck?...A SPIDER!!!!

And not just any spider but an actual spider and not a leaf flying in my window in the Arby’s drive through, yes that’s happened with the same freak out that just occurred.  Mattie you can just hush. 

This spider was the size of the shoe! OK, maybe more like a pencil eraser but it was EVIL.  Black and beady eyed, I think it had extra legs, and it only crawled above my head and randomly down the sun visor to stare and me and fake out a jump or two.  

And let’s talk about my passenger! My son, he was NO HELP!  He just laughed, got as close to his door as possible and at one point tried to jump in back!  I mean where is the gratitude that I gave you LIFE!!!

So, I stole his shoe, and drove down the road with one hand on the steering wheel, one hand hoping I was crushing the devil incarnate, one eye on the road and the other making sure the spider didn’t slip out from my death hold.  

For 8 of the longest minutes of my life!!!

Obviously I’m alive but I promise it was touch and go. 

In conclusion, the spider went to the bad place and tears of fear and rejoice may have been shed. 

And I won’t be driving the truck again....for a very long time.


I’ll be back soon! (Once I’ve recovered)

Guest Blog: How Intermittent Fasting Gave A Former Leader Of A Popular Diet Program Her Life Back

BWH Note: At Busy Women's Health, we are fueled by the stories and successes of our fellow Busy Women. Today, we are thrilled to have a Guest Blogger share her journey of self-love through Intermittent Fasting.  Meet Sheri, an Intermittent Faster since 2015, her name may ring a bell or two if you've read any of my IF stories , as she is the person responsible for introducing myself and countless others to this amazing way of life. Today, Sheri is sharing her unique perspective on Intermittent Fasting as a former member and leader of a popular dieting program. Carly Everywhere I look I see people struggling with weight loss and unsure of what program to follow to lose weight. I see a lot of people convinced that they must count calories/macros/points to lose weight. When I tell them they can let that go and simply count time, they don’t trust me. People are terrified of letting go of calorie counting or points counting or otherwise trust that fat loss with IF is dif

I Ate The Damn Cake And Lost 21 Pounds

Today is a good day. No, a GREAT day. This morning, I stepped on the scale and was amazed and ecstatic to see that I am officially 21 POUNDS LIGHTER since beginning my Intermittent Fasting journey at the end of January 2018. See the difference? I've talked before about how I found IF and started my weight loss journey if you want to check it out. The day I started IF, I weighed in at 149.8 lbs, the heaviest I'd ever been in my life. Today, I am 128.8 lbs. I haven't been close to this for almost a decade. I never thought I'd get back to 130 lbs, much less BELOW it! And I did it without depriving myself, without sacrificing my favorite foods and without ever once feeling guilty about anything I ate. Sure, I probably could've reached this milestone sooner had I been a bit stricter with myself, but that kind of defeats the purpose of what IF is all about.
